It’s been months into this worldwide lockdown and a widely known fact is that it doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. On the verge of insanity yet?
While it sounds all positive and optimistic to make the best of this time, it has also become extremely important to make sure we don’t loose our edge while we are at it. Obviously, we find our solace in our all-time buddy- our Mobile phone. But even that has turned into a mind-numbing monotony of meaningless scrolling. What’s left? The major savior Netflix.
Here are the top 10 binge worthy series that Netflix has for us. So, sit back, bring out your popcorn and get ready to Netflix and chill.
