According to Netflix’s description of the show, it is a “sci-fi anthology series explores a twisted, high-tech near-future where humanity’s greatest innovations and darkest instincts collide.”

Whenever boredom or heartbreak strikes, we find solace in this series and its six characters, whom we love! In the journey of 10 seasons of the epitome of addiction, these friends were nothing less than a family to the audience! It was a special moment when the last episode, the finale of the series was screened at The Times Square, New York on May 6, 2004!
3. House Of Cards
We had to mention a political drama in this piece of content. Such shows always move around the power that is ugly, thrilling, cathartic, satiating, and yet still very much ugly. The six seasons revolve around this thought and by the end of the show, they establish that politics is all about the above-mentioned adjectives.
It is about a Democrat who is on a journey of taking revenge from the people who deceived him while successfully rising to supremacy. Frank Underwood, secretary of state, along with his wife is making the politics dirtier. In short, “House of Cards” ends with two people fighting over a dead guy’s legacy.
We know you know that we know you know about this series. How can we miss on the most loved series of all times? For the people who haven’t watched the show should definitely binge-watch this show. And for the people who have already watched it over five times, Netflix has the option for you to binge-watch it all over again this weekend.
Six friends, leading a normal life with real-life struggles is all we need for relatability.
5. Breaking Bad
We couldn’t miss on the greatest show of all time. By the time the show came to end, people were obsessed with it and it was the most viewed show in history.
Disease, drugs, family, friendship, profit, power; these are just the starters this show offers. The main course is much bigger and larger. Throughout the seasons, Walter White is hiding his illegal business from his family and that is what simmers the suspense in the whole show. The reason behind the illicit practices, you ask? The secure future of his family is the answer.
It is exactly what the name suggests. Sherlock, the classic detective is here for the 21st century. The brilliant but antisocial creature, Sherlock Holmes, met Dr. John Watson and the two then head on a journey of solving bizarre, complicated murder mysteries, they even protected state secrets and removed every cell of a criminal empire.
The duo is trying to solve the 21st-century crimes in London. This modern-day adaptation is full of whip-smart dialogue, epic plot twists, and impeccable acting skills.
Do we need to list any more reasons to watch this particular series?
7. The Crown
With an IMDb rating of 8.7, this show is a must-watch on our list. This UK based Drama is rooted back in the time when it was all about Queen Elizabeth II. It is related to the rivalries of that time and how that time has shaped the second half of the 20th century.
It is ridiculously popular among the audience on Netflix, worldwide. According to stats, 9% of the subscribers have watched the show, we know it might not sound like a huge number. However, this number has left behind the audience of Breaking Bad, Orange Is the New Black and Gilmore Girls.
If Queen herself has seen the first season and has enjoyed every bit of it, then how could you miss this on?
Going through a weekend without a solid binge-watching plan is boring. So, opt for any of these Netflix shows and start streaming.
