Below, I’ve rounded up the Top Netflix series to watch, so you can binge-watch without chewing your brain.
Top Netflix Series to Watch in India
1. The Standups
Finest jokes and non-stop laughs for 28 minutes – this is the only thing the second season of ‘The Standups’ brings to your living room. The thing I loved most about it is the smart choice of having 6 different comic pieces in short span. To be frank, some actually resonates with my preferences and some others aren’t (no hard feeling ‘The Standup’ peeps!) but if you ask personal preference, I would say Aparna Nancherla and Brent Morin.
Stars: Aparna Nancherla, Joe List, Rachel Feinstein, Gina Yashere, Brent Morin, and Kyle Kinane
Director: Troy Miller
2. ‘The Crown’
If you love history and if you always were inquisitive to know about the life of British royals, The Crown is what you should start watching right away. The Crown is the beautiful recreation of historical events showcasing Queen Elizabeth II and her reign. You will fall in love with her more after watching The Crown as they not only focus on the political rivalries but also the romance of Queen Elizabeth. Yes, Claire’s (the female protagonist) chemistry with Matt Smith (Male protagonist) is a treat to watch.
Genre: Drama, British history
Star Cast: Claire Foy, John Lithgow, Matt Smith
Created by: Peter Morgan
Three simple things that made this series a worth watching – entertaining lead actors, a sharp script, and an ultimate question – Will Gus and Mickey get together?. The reason more fans including myself like this series is because each episode literally hovers into the next – making it feel like ‘Man, I don’t want to miss even a single second of it’. Simply put ‘Love’ is sweet, addictive, and sometimes it’s hilarious too.
Genre: Romantic comedy, Comedy-drama
Star Cast: Gillian Jacobs, Paul Rust, Claudia O’Doherty, Chris Witaske
Composer(s): Lyle Workman
This one is Netflix’s first original German series focussing on children who have gone missing. With many twists and turns, each storyline is sure to push you into doing exactly what the creators want you to do – binge. For those looking for a new binge-watch and don’t go stalled over perusing English subtitles, Dark could end up being addicting. Yes, Dark is going to stay with you long after you’ve finished watching.
Genres: Science fiction, Thriller, Drama
Stars: Louis Hofmann, Maja Schone, Oliver Masucci, Stephen Kampwirth, Angela Winkler
Created by: Baran bo Odar, Jantje Friese
5. ‘On My Block’
I would like to call it a bittersweet delight that had an immediate hit with fans and critics alike. The group of four friends from a rough Los Angeles neighborhood kind of takes me through a complex range of emotions which I can’t pin down. And, I accept ‘On My Block’ has a charm that is hard to resist and the kids had me hooked in the first episode itself.
Genres: Coming-of-Age Fiction, Comedy-drama
Stars: Ronni Hawk, Brett Gray, Jessica Garcia, Diego Tinoco, Sierra Capri, Jason Genao
Director: Jason Reitman
6. ‘Marvel’s Jessica Jones’
Jessica Jones – She’s dark, she’s anti-heroine, and she’s the badass. Plus, it is a Marvel piece. What else you want to make yourself convince in watching one of the best Netflix series? Though Marvel Entertainment has packaged this as a neo-noir superhero thriller, but let me tell you it’s much more than that. If you’re looking for some nail-biting Netflix series, ‘Marvel’s Jessica Jones’ is probably the best bet.
Genres: Action fiction, Detective fiction, Neo-noir, Psychological thriller, Superhero fiction
Stars: Denzel Washington, Marton Csokas, and Chloe Grace Moretz
Program Creator: Melissa Rosenberg
7. ‘Stranger Things’
A balancing act between horror and humor, that’s how I would like to describe ‘Stranger Things’. It’s kind of a rare combination of thrill, fun, and weirdness at its peak. I mean how many other web series are based on alternate dimensions? It is one hell of a horror series, lovingly done. So, haters, please step back.
Genre: Science fiction, Horror, Supernatural, Period Drama
Star Cast: Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown
Composers: Kyle Dixon, Michael Stein
8. ‘Queer Eye’
Here’s another feel-good Netflix series. The composers of the show made the thread a balancing one with entertainment, politics, and social aspects but without looking away from the cultural clashes. I’m pretty sure that it will melt your heart and make you cry, but will leave you wanting more and more.
Genre: Reality Television
Star Cast: Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley, Jai Rodriguez
Created by: David Collins
