Yes, we are all definitely thankful that House of Cards happened and revolutionized the world of us, binge-watchers.
So what we are saying is, if you’ve ever wondered “what should I watch on Netflix?” You’ve come to the right place. Here are some Netflix Originals you should start with:
1. Stranger Things
If you are not a fan of science fiction, this two season series can definitely make you fall in love with it. A missing boy, a terrifying investigation and a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, unnerving supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl, Stranger Things is sure to give you all the right kinds of goosebumps. Starring Golden Globe winner Winona Ryder, Stranger Things is set in 1983, a time when tales of science fiction captivated audiences.
Based in Columbia, Narcos chronicles the story of Pablo Escobar, a drug kingpin/billionaire and other crime lords who plague the country. Fast-paced, gritty with some solid acting, Narcos is packed with punches. And even though the series is a mix of Spanish and English, the subtitles make it worth watching.
