Sorting out through series and movies can feel a bit like shopping at a supermarket with only a few broad sets of overhead signs to guide you. It becomes irritating and increasingly frustrating and perhaps causes more trouble and sometimes you end up watching nothing.
But amid coronavirus and social distancing, folks need to stay home and self-isolate themselves in droves, leaving plenty of time to peer through streaming services’ myriad offerings in search of the perfect mid-pandemic entertainment. Therefore, news mobile presents you a list of amazing binge-watching series and movies from Netflix.
Breaking Bad :
What better time than a quarantine to go back to the beginning of one of TV’s greatest all-time triumphs? If you’ve already witnessed the rise and fall of Walter White, everyone’s favorite high school teacher turned meth kingpin, few series were as elegantly, ingeniously crafted—from beginning to end—in such a way as to reward repeat viewings.
And if you’re new to Breaking Bad, fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
Toy Boy :

You’ve likely seen a few installments of this anthology series, a chilling and very occasionally hopeful collection of techno-paranoiac parables. But what better time to fill in the blanks by catching early episodes (like “The Entire History of You,” starring Toby Kebbell and Jodie Whittaker as a couple replaying their memories thanks to a brain implant that records everything) and making time for the less universally acclaimed outings (like “Metalhead,” a robo-pocalypse romp with a timely through line about how far we’ll go for small joys in super-dark times).
