Ten Best Series that I Binge-Watched during Quarantine
In this article, I would like to share the top 10 series that I loved on each streaming platform. I happen to be a member of Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus, and Apple TV. Since the COVID has surged, I started watching a tremendous amount of series, starting with watching the whole season of The Walking Dead just in 2 months. 🙈 If you want to read the comic I drew during quarantine, you can find it here.
My criteria for good series are; first, the story has a new perspective and interesting point of view. Second, the production should be excellent. I also like a series when it’s intercultural and diverse. I don’t mind if there is some blood or violence in the series. If you are like me, you would love the series I recommend as well!
I usually get the information from IMDB. I type the series title in IMDB to check if it is a well-made series or not. Normally if the score is over 7/10, it means it’s really good and worth your time. Sometimes, a series pops up on my recommendation, and I start to watch it if the thumbnail is interesting.
So Let’s get started!
Number 10, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney Plus.
I just started watching it a week ago. The story is about what happens after Captain America is gone. So if you are interested in the Marvel series and wondering what happened after the movie, this will be interesting for you as well!
Number 9. SEE on Apple TV+
The story deals with the world in the future that everyone lost their eyesight and about the only man who still has eyesight. I really enjoyed seeing the and well-designed cultural rituals and costumes. It has an interesting concept and great production. There is a lot of action, fights, and blood. By far, this is the only series I watched from Apple TV +.
Number 8. Kingdom on Netflix.
The kingdom is a Korean historical drama with zombies. One unique point that differs this series from other zombie series is that these zombies can run really fast. You can also see the traditional living of the old Korean dynasty from this well-made series.
Number 7. Vikings on Netflix.
Vikings is a historical drama that shows the brutal and fascinating world of the warriors and the life of the legendary warrior Ragnar Lothbrok. I got really into this series even though I couldn’t watch bloody series that time.
Number 6. The Walking Dead on Netflix.
Yes. As I mentioned, I watched the whole 10 seasons in just 2 months. This series is unpredictable, and you will also feel sad as your favorite character bites the dust or bites other humans… Still, it is worthy because that’s what makes this series so realistic. If you are starting this famous series, I recommend you not google it and don’t read the comment sections to avoid reading spoilers.
Number 5. Invincible on Amazon Prime.
Do you like superhero movies? Don’t you feel like everything is going a little too smooth? Do superheroes have a dark side too? If you are looking for something from a new perspective from Marvel or DC Superhero movies, this is it. It contains antihero, black humor, violence, and nice 2D animation.
Number 4. American Gods on Amazon Prime.
American Gods has a unique concept about gods and faith. If there are believers, there is the god! Gods live in America looking like a person. It is really interesting to see the brilliant ideas for each god. It is definitely worthy of your time.
Number 3. The Boys on Amazon Prime.
The boys is the original anti-superhero series. It is a world with plenty of superheroes not only saving the world but also busy doing commercials. The main character is a normal boy that wants to revenge on the strongest superhero and collaborate with other normal criminals against superheroes. Sounds interesting? Then you should go for it.
Number 2. Mandalorian on Disney Plus.
Mandalorian is the series is a series based on Star Wars. The timeline is in the future. Even if you haven’t watched the Star Wars series, it is just really fun and easy to follow. You can see diverse creatures and people in the Star Wars universe. It is interesting to see different cultures and hear different alien languages.
For me, the best part of the series is to watch the adorable baby Yoda. The animation of baby Yoda is done not with the computer graphic but with delicate control of real puppets! I think it’s real craftsmanship. You might fall in love with the way of the Mandalorians after watching this series.
Number 1. Sense8 on Amazon Prime.
Sense8 is a series that deals with the situation that one day, 8 people from different parts of the world and background get connected. They can feel what others are feeling. I really liked the concept of totally different people connecting and really understanding each other so deeply. It has a lot of actions and lots of co-missions! It is a very memorable series for me.
And it’s done! I hope you like my list of the best ten series I watched during quarantine times. Click play and enjoy!
