Entertainment is the only escape for most of us during the ongoing lockdown. Netflix releases an absolute avalanche of content every year and has a tremendous effect on the audience.

Of course, there are thousands of series to watch and we end up adding it to the ‘to watch list and not watching it later. It might be difficult to choose a series to watch from hundreds of series and shift from one plot to another. We spend ample amounts of time just choosing the right one to watch, so here is a list of some series that are worth the binge and will save you the time of surfing on Netflix.

The bold type:

This trio manages to balance their love life and career like anyone in their twenties, which is relatable and worthy of the watch.



While we are at it, how can we not mention the classic period drama Bridgerton? It takes you to that corset and gown era and makes you so obsessed with the culture and lifestyle. The series is about finding love in London high society. It is wholesome, with steaminess of 365 days, costume as beautiful as the Disney princess, the drama of gossip girl. you can’t just have enough of the couple Daphne Bridgerton played by the beautiful phoebe Dynvor and the handsome and elegant prince of duke played by the charmer himself Regè Jean page.

It is a satisfactory romcom to sit back and enjoy.

The umbrella academy:
