As of now, all cinema halls and other entertainment sectors in the country remain shut. Residents are resorting to online streaming giants like Netflix and Amazon for daily dose of entertainment. This has also led to films rescheduling releases and theatre owners making alternate plans for a post-Covid world.

What Else?

In today’s day and age, the term TV has become synonymous with Netflix. Life doesn’t function normally without a little bit of Netflix everyday. Especially now, with the outbreak of Corona, enclosed spaces such as cinemas are not the best places to go. So, even for those who are not too sure about the new generation movie site, you don’t really have much other choice. We’re here to help out and give you a list of the top 10 most entertaining and binge worthy series/movies to watch on Netflix!

1. Stranger Things

Are you a fan of the paranormal? This science fiction series caters to every type of audience. It has a little bit of romance, some family friendly comedy, and a whole lot of monster fighting action! Its perfect for a family night, and has a total of three seasons. Each season doesn’t have too many episodes so it won’t take too long to binge watch it all. The series centres around four 12 year old boys attempting to fight and destroy a monster from another realm. Although the main cast are a bunch of kids, the show is catered to all ages.

2. House Of Cards

Probably my favourite show till date, this Kevin spacey political thriller is some of the best work the man has ever done. Although Spacey’s name was tarnished, the stellar show still went on to win numerous awards for its brilliantly woven storyline. The show features Kevin spacey and Robin wright as husband and wife, plotting to reach the white house. Their calculated manipulation, ruthlessness, and their disregard for anything but each other, sets them on a dangerous path towards presidency. Murder, treachery, and intelligence are some of the main themes in the series. The show has 6 seasons and is aimed at an older audience. It is rated for a demographic of 18 years and above.

3. The Good Wife

Do you enjoy a good law series? The good wife is the perfect law show. It has elements of drama, romance, and outstanding court room scenes. The show follows the life of the brilliant lawyer Alicia florrick. After her husband gets sent to jail, she finds a job at a law firm her high school sweetheart works at. And of course, an intriguing story begins. The show is again, aimed at an older audience.
