Over four months into quarantine, we’re running out of things to do. We’ve mastered the art of making the perfect banana bread and focaccia, we’ve learnt morse code, we’ve tried yoga. And finally, we’ve reached the end of the million ideas we had to occupy our time.
It’s time to finally give in, grab some popcorn, and open up Netflix - for we have for you seven must-watch shows to see:
1. Anne With an E (IMDb rating: 8.7/10)
If you’re looking for a small town, simple show to lift your spirits, look no further. Adapted from the famous classic novel Anne of Green Gables, the series takes place in the small Canadian town of Avonlea. Here, Anne, an imaginative, flamboyant, and talkative young orphan comes into the care of brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. Over the course of three seasons, we see Anne grow from a wild, colourful adolescent into a strong minded and yes, still colourful young woman, as she navigates through friendships, love, and responsibility.
Besides the amazing sets and wonderfully gripping storylines, the show expertly touches upon issues like racism, bullying and feminism in.
However, begin this 27 episode long series at your own risk - once you start, we doubt you’ll be able to stop.
2. Money Heist (IMDb rating: 8.4/10)
For those who despise subtitles - this show makes them worth it. The Spanish series revolves around - you guessed it - a heist, led by the criminal mastermind ‘El Professor’. However, this is no ordinary heist, for they plan to rob the Royal Mint of Spain. It involves keeping several people hostage for days on end and manufacturing their own currency notes, amounting to billions.
