Our Netflix watchlist to glue yourself to your couch

All you need to do is to stay at home.
Reading time 4 minutes

Our plan for the weeks is to be content with whatever it comes. And let us be frank, staying at home to do nothing could be the luxury we've been longing for, to finally have plenty of time and space to our own.

In this 'perfect timing' to goof off (if you must, maybe do it "off working hours"?), we curated a list of our favourite shows on Netflix to binge, because when better than now to invest in a series or two?

 

From Netflix Original Series to movie and documentary, scroll down to see what's on our watchlist:

I AM NOT OKAY WITH THIS

If you are a sucker for growing-up epics with a dark twist, you wouldn't want to miss this brainchild of the producers of Stranger Things and the director of The End of the F***ing World.

From the perspective of Sydney, the 17-year-old protagonist, we slowly unfold her melancholy and the discovery of her telekinetic power. In the first season of I Am Not Okay With This, the pleasure of chaos and violence is reimagined in the vein of The End of the F***ing World, whilst a salty sense of humour goes like a beautiful glitch amidst all the disorders to allow us to take a step back, and have a different outlook on the turns in life.

KINGDOM

A zombie plague is spreading across the dynasty of Joseon (ancient Korea), and the protagonists realised the real enemies are the bloodthirsty courtiers looking to take the throne and power.

Kingdom delves into the contrasts between the identities of different characters and how they have driven the story. Expect to enjoy as much brilliant story-telling as mind-blowing cinematography brought to life by the stellar Korean production team and artists including Bae Doo-na, Ju Ji-hoon, Ryu Seung-ryong and more.

DAVID FINCHER ON NETFLIX

Netflix has always been that sanctuary to worship the filmography of David Fincher.

From cult favourite Seven to the acclaimed two-season Mindhunter, drench yourself into the darkness of David Fincher’s universe, be prepared for immense mind-twists and fall for those mesmerising criminal characters.

EXPLAINED

Ask us what's stranger and wilder than Stranger Things on Netflix, and we will tell you it is the Explained, a 20-minute program parked under the Documentaries category.

Each episode of Explained explores a certain issue or subject that worths the world's attention. Through the interviews with related individuals, historical events and other data collected across the globe, the show triggers wonders over the theme without subjective criticism instilled.

Our favourite episodes? The Female Orgasm, Political Correctness and Cults.

STUDIO GHIBLI MOVIES

You’ve probably watched these movies countless times with your cousins and even haunted by it when you were a kid. But have you ever tried revisiting these stories as a grown-up?

Just like every timeless classic from Studio Ghibli, there’s always something new for you in the movie – a detail you’ve never noticed or a message you finally pick up.

You will immerse in the magical realm with Chihiro in Spirited Away or Mei in My Neighbor Totoro as if it is your first time, and eventually, you will find your memories and present come together in your head.
