If you are an occasional couch potato like me and love binge-watching series and movies, get your popcorn tub, and bury yourself under a pile of blankets. Here is my personal list of 10 must-watch series from Netflix.

But first, a disclaimer is in order. This is my personal list, and it is a cacophony of all genres. And by no means it’s a ranked list. So, here it goes.

Midnight Asia

Season(s): 1 Episodes:  6

Come December and January, festivities never seem to end. Then come the last weeks of January – the lazy weeks. You want a small get-away, get your energy booster. But oh, reality check, the pandemic is still not over yet! What is then the way about? Uh, Duh! Watch travel shows!

Midnight Asia is different. It makes up for the nights we wished we could have traveled to discover amazing Asia. The series was released in 2022 on Netflix with one season that comprises six episodes. The show starts with a bang, and each episode transports you through different countries in Asia. It shows the nightlife, the food (yum!), the people, and a lot more.

It’s definitely a good watch which makes you want to pack a suitcase and go.

Yup, this had to make its way in my list. Honestly, it is a good watch, but the ending can be a tad bit confusing. Tons of questions will pop up in your head. Answers to those questions probably will be revealed if there is another season in the schedule coming up soon. Hailing from the most-watched horror series, give this series a go!
