Giving a brief synopsis for this show is quite difficult, still I’ll give it a try. Black Mirror is a collection of science fiction stories that explores in vivid detail the consequences modern technology has on our society. Unlike normal web series, where each episode is a continuation of the earlier episode to progress the story, the episodes of Black Mirror are independent and each episode is a new story.

I have to say, that Black Mirror is one of the best Netflix original series present on the platform right now. Its twisted take on how technology influences human behavior is fascinating to watch. Watching this show will certainly be a rollercoaster ride for you.

The shows’ gripping storyline will compel you to binge watch the episodes of this bilingual show (Spanish and English).

Ozark is engaging and Jason Bateman is superb in the role of a man who is willing to protect his family at any cost.

The End of the F***ing World

Based on the a comic series by Charles S. Forsman, The End of the F***ing World is a black-comedy about James and Alyssa. One of the best things about this web series is its runtime, with each episode running for more or less 20 mins. James, played by Alex Lawther, is a 17-year old, who thinks himself as a psychopath couples up with Alyssa, played by Jessice Barden, his psychologically damaged classmate coming from a dysfunctional family on a murky misadventure.

The storyline beautifully highlights the miseries and deeply troubled psychological state of these two teenagers, who find comfort in one another.
