The era of OTT platforms is bringing the best shows to the audience’s screens at home. During the coronavirus pandemic, people got used to watching amazing shows inside the walls of their homes at weekends. Going to theatres on the weekend is an old affair now.
Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+Hotsar, Sony LIV, and so on are some of the leading OTT platforms that offers variety of shows and films in different genres.
As the weekend is approaching, Newsd has curated a list of top shows that you can watch on Netflix:
Bridgerton is set during the Regency period in England and follows the powerful Bridgerton family as they navigate love, marriage, and scandal. Incredibly entertaining, the show is based on a series of novels with each one focusing on a different Bridgerton sibling – this first series follows eldest sister Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and her turbulent marriage to one of London’s most eligible bachelors, Duke Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page).
The Queen’s Gambit:
The fictional story in The Queen’s Gambit, named after a chess opening, follows her rise from an orphanage to toppling the best players in the world as long as her drug addiction and bags of wine bottles don’t get in the way.
Ginny and Georgia:
This series follows the journey of a 15-year old daughter Ginny and her 30-year-old mother Georgia, who decides to move to a New England town to give them a better life.
Masaba Masaba follows the journey of the famous mother-daughter duo, Neena and Masaba Gupta, and shows what a typical day in their life looks like! They fight, they argue, and quarrel, but in the end, all they need is each other to get through the struggles of life!
The sci-fi movie has an excellent mix of comedy and action. After the latest debris chase, the Spaceship Victory snatches a crashed space shuttle. The crew finds a seven-year-old girl is inside, but she’s no ordinary girl. She’s a humanlike robot that the UTS Space Guards want to find.
Chef’s Table is the perfect way to get inspired and passionate about food. What’s more, there are six seasons to get your teeth stuck into. The most recent of these involves Sean Brock, who is dedicated to reviving lost flavours, and Tuscan butcher Dario Cecchini who is trying to change how the world thinks about meat. If you want to get your mouth watering, the entire of season four is dedicated to pastry.
When They See Us:
Director Ava DuVernay’s limited series about the wrongfully accused men in the Central Park Five case is an emotionally heavy reimagining of a truly tragic event in our history.
The series sheds light on racial profiling and corruption in the NYPD as a group of young Black men are targeted for a heinous crime and put on trial with little evidence. It’s a gripping, heartbreaking retelling, but one that feels sadly relevant.
The Umbrella Academy:
The show follows the story of seven kids, all born on the same day to mothers who didn’t even know they were pregnant. They’re adopted by a mysterious billionaire and trained to use their supernatural abilities to fight evil in the world, but when they grow up, their dysfunctional upbringing catches up with them, and they’re left struggling to live normal lives.
Natasha Lyonne stars in this Groundhog Day-from-hell remake about a woman who’s forced to relive the last day of her life over and over again. It’s been done before, but this series stands out thanks to its mix of dark humor and a tinge of the supernatural. Lyonne is one of the often-overlooked OITNB stars, but it looks like this series is giving her a chance to show off her comedic chops as her character, Nadia, endures a constant loop of partying, dying, then waking up to do it all over again.
