Although it just appeared on Netflix, Terrace House was originally a Japanese series produced by Fuji Television. Starting in 2012, the show follows six men and women who live in a house together.
The first eight seasons that were produced solely in Japan took place in a house in the Shōnan area. However, after Netflix picked it up, they moved the house to an undisclosed location in Tokyo, then to Hawaii.
Essentially, the show follows the ordinary lives of the six roommates as they live together and go about their daily lives. It’s quite meditative and slow as there’s not much drama. But, the drama that exists is dealt with immediately, so it doesn’t cause rifts between roommates.
Interspersed within the episodes are commentary scenes, where media personalities comment on the action.
