After Squid Game, Maid is currently the second most talked about Netflix show right now.
The limited series joined the streaming giant on October 1, and is inspired by Stephanie Land’s New York Times best-selling memoir ‘Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive’.
Margaret Qualley stars in the drama series as a young mother who leaves her emotionally abusive boyfriend with their young daughter and gets a job working as a maid.
Nick Robinson, Anika Noni Rose, Tracy Vilar, Billy Burke and Andie MacDowell also star in the emotional, powerful series – which depicts poverty, domestic violence, and America’s broken welfare system.
Maid has been getting rave reviews from viewers, who have been taking to Twitter to share their thoughts and opinions.
One fan tweeted: “The Maid on Netflix is phenomenal. The show is extremely raw. Bringing awareness to domestic violence, government assistance, just how broken the systems are. I absolutely recommend watching it all.”
Another wrote: “Just finished #Maid on Netflix. Ten episodes binged in one day. 10 outta 10 stars, which is an actual shame because the stars for this should be endless. I cannot recommend this show enough. Watch it. It may be hard, and sometimes triggering, but the payoff is so worth it.”

I don’t think enough people are talking about MAID on Netflix. I’ve been thinking about Alex and Maddy and black mold and ferry stations and Danielle and Denise and Schmariel for the last three days. Literally parceling out the episodes, so it doesn’t end. So well-done.

Margaret's drama "MAID" is available on Netflix from today, so I decided to watch it. The story is based on a true story written by Stephanie Land. Margaret plays a single mother and her mother is Andie MacDowell! I've seen 3 episodes and it's pretty good! I'm sure I'm right! pic.twitter.com/TYnGSFUicn

Just finished watching Maid on Netflix, I give it a 10/10 rating. I have so much to say about each character but you see Nate, his character is so important because he’s a reflection of a lot of men that genuinely think they’re good/nice.

If you grew up rich I am begging you to watch Maid on Netflix. Other than Florida Project I have not seen a more realistic depiction of poverty & how hard each step of daily life is within it. You need to understand how lucky & oblivious you are if you’ve never experienced it.
