You know how times have changed, and we do not do 'TV' anymore. We have work, schools and annoying Unis. ARGH! Even though we are so busy and surviving on caffeine and eight hours of sleep seems like the wildest fantasy on the bed, we can not miss our favourite shows (remember those days when not seeing the fresh episode of Game of Thrones was against our ethics? OHMYGOD!).
We all know GOT ended on an 'annoying' note but fear note mates, there are thousand os series you can still binge-watch and get obsessed with.
Well, we all know what's up with Netflix (Little things 3 guys, I know, I know... I am excited too. Okay?) but let me help you with another web series platform, the platform that serves with everything from A to Z, yes ladies and gentlemen, Amazon Prime.
Disclaimer: The following list is not according to their ratings but just a simple list of must watch!
1. Made in Heaven
Rotten Tomatoes- 83%
Our Desi web series is catching up with the West. Made in Heaven is no less. This is a masterpiece, and no matter how you define yourself, you will get a crush on the lead actress, Sobhita Dhulipala. The story is by Vivek Anchalia, and it was aired on 8th March 2019, and with the end of season 1, fingers are crossed for an announcement of season 2 (We want it, and the show deserves it!)
In short, the story is about proving oneself, love, friendship, lots and lots of beautiful weddings, family dramas (I mean who doesn't love to watch that) and a strong social message.
2. The Marvelous Mrs Maisel
Rotten tomatoes- 92%
This is an award-winning series and by awards I mean, more than two prestigious awards. The story of this series is set in the late 1950s and is written by a very well known screenwriter and director Amy Sherman-Palladino (you don't know her, What is wrong with you? Gilmore Girls? Does that ring any bell?)
Watch this series if you are looking for some period comedy-drama.
3. Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan
Rotten Tomatoes- 74%
Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, or just Jack Ryan, is an American web series based on the fictional characters created by Tom Clancy. The show premiered on August 31, 2018. The series is action-packed, and it is thrilling and has politics in it.
This is going to be your pick when you are going to procrastinate, and you want something intense so that you can shadow your delayed work pressure.
I know whenever you have heard the three words, 'Indian crime thriller' it has reminded you of iconic CID, and you have rolled your eyes. Not shading that show because hey! Childhood memories. And if you are looking for something new, fresh and then Mirzapur is your go-to.
This series was mainly shot in Mirzapur, and it is about guns, drugs, and chaos. It portrays the putrescence and power of mafia dons and the crimes and corruption prevailing in the Purvanchal region of Uttar Pradesh.
Rotten Tomatoes- 94%
Forever will probably call you forever alone on your face if you are single. This is an American web series that has lots of comedy and drama.
The series follows a married couple, June and Oscar who lives a very satisfying but likely life in suburban Riverside, CA. They had the same conversations, had the same meals and taken vacations at the same lake house for 12 years. But when June talks Oscar into going for a ski trip to come out of their comfort zone, the couple finds themselves in entirely different territory.
6. The family man
I love this time when our entertainment industry is coming up with so many amazing series. Till the end of the season, you will be glued to the screen. (HOW COOL IS THAT?)
This series is an Indian fictional web series which is created by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K.
The Family Man is about a middle-class man who is secretly working for the T.A.S.C branch of the National Investigation Agency. Action, drama and a secret spy... OH YES!
7. Carnival Row
Rotten Tomatoes- 57%
I get it, you are putting second thoughts after seeing Rotten Tomatoes rating but hear me out people who watched it have enjoyed it, and there are good reviews from the audience. You can take this little risk to watch something that has a 57% rating. I mean it is not going to be as bad as getting back to your ex (Oops!)
If you are bored of all the realistic and practical web series, then this is your chance to dive into the world of fantasy (Yes, we are not going to do a Harry Potter marathon again and no more binge-watching Twilight, I mean Edward Cullen is Batman now, even he moved on.)
Anywho, Carnival Row is an American web series. Neo-Nair and Fantasy is its genre. The series is about mythical creatures who have fled their motherland which had been destroyed in the war, and they have gathered in the city as tensions are raging among citizens and the growing immigrant population. Amidst all the tension and stress, there is the investigation of unsolved crimes, the insanity of power, incomplete love, and social adjustments eroding at whatever uneasy peace exists.
8. Sneaky Pete
Rotten Tomatoes- 96%
An American crime and drama web series. The series is about Marius Josipović (Frank Buffay, Jr.), a released felon who uses the identification of his cellmate.
This series is for you if you are looking for a series related to con artists.
Rotten Tomatoes- 100%
Undone didn't go undone with its genre, adult animation, comedy and drama, psychological thriller and mystery. It is a full package.
This web series shows the flexible nature of reality through Alma, its principal character. Following a dangerous car accident, the lead, Alma learns that she has a connection with time, and she uses this ability to figure out what had happened with her father’s death.
10. Inside edge
Another must-watch Indian web series. The web series is based on a fictional T20 cricket team called the Mumbai Mavericks that plays in the Power-Play League.
Inside Edge shows an inside look behind the politics of the game which is set in an aspect of differing interests, where self-indulgence is almost a morality, while sex, wealth, and leadership are mere ways to an end.
