The lockdown has taken away almost every good thing we could do outside our home. But, that means we get to stay more inside the house. The extra sleeping hours, comfort of wearing comfy clothes, and flexibility of working from home give you more time for yourself.
Entertainment is a fun way to fill that time with happiness and inspiration while working from home. So, here are the top 10 shows we think would boost your vibe during the lockdown.
Here's what you will learn
1. Schitt’s Creek
A rich family that has everything suddenly loses it all. Sound familiar to our condition right now? Well, the show revolves around how every person takes on the journey ahead both individually and as a team.
The hilarious comedy backed with some great punchlines will surely inspire you with a smile.
2. Ye Meri Family
Now that we all are spending much more time with our family, here is a show that you will find both relatable and binge worthy. A subtle drama series produced by TVF will take you back to the time when Shaktiman on DD National was the best show on TV, the 1990s.
Sit back and enjoy a cup of tea while watching this beautiful show with your family, if you want to.
3. Kota Factory
Any engineer reading this would know right away what this show is about. But, what the show has in it is not just for the engineers. It is for anyone who has seen struggle in life, or is currently going through it too.
Not a comedy series, but you won’t be able to stop watching the next episodes as soon as you watch the first. It’s really hooking.
4. Permanent Roommates
With lockdown putting our relationships outside the house at a halt, one way to feel it is by watching this show. Unlike the love stories that you watch in movies, this one has much more realism and connectivity.
If you do end up watching this cute and quite funny series, there will surely be more than one instance you would say, “Ye To Mere Sath Bhi Hua Hai”.
5. Little Things
Just as the name goes this show not just showcases the little things in life that we often forget to embrace, but also inspires us from within. Divided into three seasons, you will get on a roller coaster ride of emotions, nostalgia, and tears watching this one.
It is a great watch for those who are working on building their careers while maintaining the balance of their relationships.
6. Pataal Lok
Not all shows are meant to bring out your happy emotions. Some are meant to give you a reality check too. Pataal Lok is a short series that revolves around a crime prevented in Delhi.
But, the prevention of that crime itself takes a police officer on a journey full of surprises, dramatic turns, and an amazing climax.
7. Delhi Crime
Interested in watching horror series? This one is not just horror, but a crime horror. Delhi Crime is a not so subtle show that exposes the reality of our society in a terrifying way.
Be sure to witness jump scares, unending dilemmas, and amazing dialog writing in this web series available exclusively on Netflix.
8. The Office
For anyone missing the physical presence of being in an office with you colleagues, this show is for you. Even though laid in a much earlier time, it still feels relevant in these times. The types of people you witness in your time at office, the relations you build as you go, and the lessons you learn are all packed in there.
All you gotta do is know how to laugh when a joke comes, and you are good to go.
9. TVF Tripling
We all love our brothers and sisters, almost all. This show is not just about that. It is about much more than just a relationship between siblings. It is about how they influence your life, what makes you bond with them, and how they are always in the first line of your priority.
Add to this the amazing scenery of a road trip as the show moves ahead. It surely is a good view for both the eye and the soul.
If social isolation is what you don’t like due to the lockdown, this show will become your best friend in no time at all. Starring some of the greatest actors in the modern television and web entertainment industry, Panchayat is a show that throws a young urban guy in a secluded village for the sake of building his career. Anything said more may entertain spoilers, so you better go watch it yourself.
Entertainment Is An Escape
And escaping from reality is not always bad. In testing times like these, entertaining yourself with some good shows can make your heart happier, mind calmer, and feeling refreshed.
