Netflix’s geo-location-based content compartmentalisation is just awful. Ideally, all the content on Netflix should be available to its users no matter where they are; unfortunately, that’s not how things work in reality. There are a lot of shows you can only watch on Netflix if you are in the USA and this can be extremely annoying.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Sabrina: The Teenage Witch was a semi-popular sitcom in the USA over a decade ago. While the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is based around the same titular character, both these shows couldn’t be more different from each other.
Following of the life of a teen Sabrina, who is half-human and half-witch, the first part of the first season explores her struggles as she tries to keep juggling her normal high-school life with her more fantastical adventures.
That might sound a standard fantasy comedy but Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is so much more than that. Filled with uniquely interesting characters, set in a fascinating world and with some of the best writing in a fantasy series, this show is a must watch — especially if you are a fan of fantasy and Harry Potter.
Technically set in the same continuity as the rest of the MCU, Daredevil follows the story of a blind lawyer, Matt Murdock who fights in for justice in courts during the day and at night he puts on a mask and fights crime with his bare hands—for the majority of the first season that is.
The idea of a blind man fighting crime might seem absurd and silly on the surface but those are two words that you absolutely cannot use to describe this show. This is a dark, gritty, street-level version of the MCU that the fans had never seen before this series premiered.
While the titular hero is definitely entertaining to watch, the primary villain of the first and third season Wilson Fisk, aka The Kingpin, is what pushes this series to a level of greatness that most TV shows can only aspire to reach.
Moreover, it has some of the best action scenes that you can find in a TV or Web-series that are masterfully shot and directed.
The first season of Jessica Jones is the best thing to ever come out of the deal between Marvel and Netflix. While the second season was such a massive let down for a majority of its audience, the first season is just so damn good that it just needs to watch.
Jessica Jones, a private detective with superhuman strength, but she is not a superhero. She is a very broken and flawed character with a very dark back-story, one that this explored deeply across the first season.
The titular Miss Jones is one of the most well-written and realistic characters to exist in the MCU and goes through one of the greatest character development arcs Marvel has ever produced.
The villain of the first season of Jessica Jones, was hands-down the best villain in the MCU before Thanos finally came to the forefront in Infinity War. Equal parts of creepy and charismatic, with an overpowered ability that leads to some horrific things happening to our beloved heroine, Kilgrave, completely dominated every single scene he is in.
Anime is becoming more and more popular all over the world with every passing year and even multinational companies have started to consider it as a major form of entertainment media. Netflix shook the very foundation of the anime world when it premiered its first ever anime series Devilman Crybaby.
Devilmen are formed when a human’s body get merged with a demon in a way that the human remains in control, mostly. The lead character becomes a devilman in the very first episode and what follows are ten episodes of absolute madness and crazy visuals which make Devilman Crybaby and experience that needs to be lived through.
Yes, the ending is quite polarizing but that is not a deal breaker when everything else is so amazing.
