So you just turned on your television and hit that Netflix icon but wait, as always you are just confused that what to watch now. You could dive right into the shows that Netflix recommends you to watch but again you are not sure that will that be right. You don’t want to waste your time on something utterly nonsense that is far astray from your taste. This is the common dilemma faced by each and every person while they are filling up their popcorn tubs for the renowned method of entertainment “Netflix and chill”.
Without making you wait anymore so that you can’t blame me for your cold popcorn and warm cold drink let’s dive into the list of shows which you are gonna recommend after some time.
- Peaky Blinder
- Black Mirror
- Stranger Things
- 13 Reasons Why
- Money Heist
1. Peaky Blinders
Thomas Shelby is mob moss and a businessman who wants to rise to power and is ready to take necessary steps towards implementing his vision. He can’t sleep as he is deeply affected by the world war where he was a tunnel digger and a war hero for the British military. With many things wrong with his life he doesn’t blame, contemplate or shows his anger to anybody. But boy oh boy don’t mistake me for saying that he lets someone slip away after making a fool out of him or even showing him disrespect. The trademark blade sewed hat that only peaky blinder wears will slash your eyelids the moment you offend Thomas or any of the blinders. The series has a dark taste and it has a large quota of politics, mind games, behind the back politics and well our very own Cillian Murphy who plays Thomas Shelby. The peaky blinders was not originally a Netflix original but were taken over from BBC and if you like gangsters, guns, booze, and power struggle then this is the just the thing for you.
2. Black mirror
What would you do if you have the power to revisit every single moment from your past and analyze it? would you enjoy it or go crazy. And what if you have the power to virtualize your dead spouse and feel him/her again but deep down you know that it’s not real but just a computer algorithm imitating them. Black mirror is a combination of individual stories depicting what could the technology do with us and we would just be hopeless and so deeply affected that we can’t seek a way out. There is no specific episode or character to talk about, even the episodes are not connected. This is one of those shows that I personally recommend everybody but beware don’t watch it if you are depressed, have anxiety issues or stress disorders because let me tell you this show can stir up emotion and make you feel nostalgic, Cramped or stressed. But not many shows have the power to drive such a strong emotion and that’s why it belongs in this list.
3. Stranger things
Will Byers, a local town boy disappears while he was heading back home after a game of dungeon and dragons with his friends. The whole town is shaken by this incident and being a small town everybody offers help and searches for will along with local police. Mike Wheeler, one of the friends of the disappeared kid found a strange girl of the same age who doesn’t know how to talk when he along with his other friends were searching for will secretly. He gives stranger girl a corner in his room to stay because apparently she has nowhere to go and was definitely scared of something. Later they found out the big secret behind the girl, why she is quiet and where was actually will disappear too.
The story plot may sound like one of those Enid Blyton books where four kids went up to some shady place and had their supper made up of sandwiches and lemonade but it is much more than that. This is one of the most watched shows on Netflix and is a must watch for every kind of audience out there.
4. 13 Reasons Why
The school life is fun but what if your friend had committed suicide and sometime later you’ve found out that you were the reason behind her demise. Clay Jenson a high school student received a pack of 13 tapes each with a name on it. The tape contains the reason why Hannah baker a normal and quite cheerful high school girl committed suicide. If your name is on the tape then you are one of the reasons why.
The storyline is shockingly truthful and depicts a story of a girl who really wants to fit-in and despite all, she’s been through tried to live her life. But one after one her hope faded away and eventually she met her end but left something that will disrupt the lives of those she left behind forever. So are you ready to listen to all thirteen of them and decide for yourself, then do add this one to your ‘To be watched’ list?
5. La Casa De Papel (Money heist)
You all have seen and heard the stories about the world greatest ever robbery and all but this time Netflix comes with something that is downright very detailed and leaves you speechless at last. There are a band of misfits of the society who have entered ‘Fabrica De Timbre’ forcefully carefully executes what is labeled as the biggest robbery in the history of the world. All started six months ago when a man who covers his identity behind his alias ‘The professor’ gathers a team and shares his vision of executing the heist. The series includes some of the very best strategies, situation handling Skills and a pinch of romance captured between all the bloody action out there.
Money heist is originally in Spanish and I recommend to watch it in the same language with subtitles on. Otherwise, you will be listening to someone other than those actor’s voice who had done complete justice to their roles. Every other show that secured a spot on this list is a personal favorite of mine and people like me, who are big-time Television buffs who like to watch content that makes sense. Usually people are not the same and similarly, the content they like differs too. I recommend to watch all of the above and get to know what you really like and develop a taste for yourself first if you are new to this.
