Oh Netflix rey, tere bina bhi kya jeena? I bet most of us share the same sentiment. Every year, Netflix spoils us silly with its line-up of new shows to the point where we have stopped heading out and being social. Waise, who wants to head out in this cold anyway? Every day I walk out of my apartment to go to work, I’m a walking burrito under my layers of jackets and sweatshirts. That’s enough punishment! In the evenings, all I want is to get warm in my bed and what better way than great shows to help you through the next few weeks of winter?
So, double the fun by calling your friends over to enjoy the following shows over a glass of Black Dog.

This series hits a little too close to home. Think of all the phishing scam stories you may have read or come across by now involving debit/credit card details cajoled out of unsuspecting people.

A news report brings the village into the spotlight and suddenly everyone wants a piece of the pie.
They say all good things must come to an end. Even Hollywood shows. Sigh. BoJack Horseman that came out in 2014 quickly became everyone’s favourite from the word go.

The few glimpses into Bojack’s regrettable past and what’s to come has made one thing sure – we will all be needing a hell lot of tissues to sit through this one.
