24 minutes, some noodles, some laughs
Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories, now running on Netflix, is nice. Low key but kind of funny, it has real feeling to it without being too sentimental. And it has a real appreciation for the physical and visual pleasures of a late night meal, from sizzling noodles in a wok to the shine of a freshly wiped wooden counter.
It's actually a demanding format, but these guys know what they're doing. It's fun to watch them work with it.
