There isn’t anything in the entertainment industry as popular as Netflix these days and ever since it has started producing its own content, unique and quirky, there was no going back. And of course, a very humorous Twitter account made it even more popular. There are currently tons of shows and movies that you can watch on Netflix, and here are some of the most popular picks that you should watch, like now. Take a look.
1. 13 Reasons Why
This show is about a high school girl, Hannah Baker, who kills herself after leaving a box of cassette tapes behind, in which she states the reasons behind her suicide. The show corners some sensitive topics like bullying, rape, depression and initially met with a lot of criticism, as it posed a threat of triggers to a particular audience. However, the show has become a huge success, due to its approach, concept and the development of characters.
2. Brooklyn Nine-Nine
A cop sitcom? Bring it on! Brooklyn Nine-nine is one of those hilarious shows that’d brighten your gloomy mood in a jiffy. The show is full of cleverly written jokes, and the strong cast nails every single scene. No wonder the show is nominated numerous times for prestigious awards like golden globes and Emmys!
3. House of cards
This one is a political drama, surrounding the white house. Frank Underwood of the show is ruthless, manipulative, ambitious and power hungry. His equally kick-ass wife Claire (played by Robin Wright) helps him to get where he wants to. Be ready for some jaw-dropping scenes and plot twists that will send shivers down your spine.
4. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Hands down, the funniest show on Netflix. The LED-shoe wearing, always smiling, naive and fiercely funny Kimmy will win your hearts. And Titus Andromedon, the gay black best friend of Kimmy’s is just as wonderful. Watch it and you’ll definitely thank us later. And oh, brownie points, Ellie Kemper plays Kimmy!
5. To The Bone
After 13 Reasons Why, Netflix did this daring project, dealing with another sensitive issue, anorexia. Lily Collins plays Ellen, a 20-year-old with severe anorexia (the actress did her part really well, losing some serious weight) who is treated by Dr.Beckham (Keanu Reeves). Ellen is charming, witty, stubborn and nihilistic. Watching her make her way from frustrating pessimism to soothing hope will sure bring a smile to your lips.
6. Stranger Things
Didn’t the Stranger Things massive fandom wave hit you yet? This sci-fi horror show is now a darling to many Netflix-and-chilling millennials. Character development is super strong in this one, you guys. Set in the theme of 1980’s Indiana, the show includes paranormality, psychokinesis and loads of supernatural elements. Perfect match for your fantasy fix.
Ah! This one will make you cry, for sure. The story centers around Mija, a Korean girl, trying to reunite with her experimentally bred super pig, Okja. This movie will not only move you to tears but will also force you to change your outlook towards animal cruelty. This is a must-watch, you peeps.
Who knew Riverdale from Archie Comics before it was cool? Ok, certainly not me. But I got hooked on this one pretty soon. Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead are the lead characters of the show, in a seemingly normal neighborhood. Not so soon, my friend, watch these four high school kids unravel the darkest secrets of Riverdale one by one, pretty much in Pretty-Little-Liar’s way. Probably with a little less focus on the wardrobe though.
9. The Crown
Curious about the ways of Royal family of England? You gotta watch this one. The show is about Queen Elizabeth II, all the politics and the power play that took place in her reign and the consequences of it all. Claire Foy does a banging job portraying the Queen, and the directorial team did a thorough research, making the show historically almost accurate.
So here is the list of the super-watchable shows right now on Netflix. Make yourself comfortable, grab a glass of red wine and maybe a pizza, and dive right into binge watching. Happy Netflixing to you!
