Moreover, it was also the time when young girls of the upper class or debutantes make their first appearance in society. And that is what you are going to watch in this Netflix series.
Bridgerton is the story about these eight siblings of the powerful Bridgerton family – Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory, and Hyacinth – navigating London high society in search of love, surrounded by friends and rivals alike.

Anyhow, the cast includes some renowned names such as Regé-Jean Page as Simon Basset, Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne, Ruby Baker, Bailey, and much more. Apart from the story, the best thing about this series is that you get to see so many great outfits like bridgerton simon’s basset red tailcoat, and top-notch cinematography along with the great effort each member of the cast has put into its making. Even the first season of Bridgerton is currently the most-watched thing on Netflix. At the time of its premiere, it had a viewership of around 82 million households. The second season of the series is currently number one in approximately 92 countries. Now you may have an idea why is it on the top of this recommendation list?
The next one on the list would have to be Inventing Anna not because of the viewership but because this American drama series is truth-based. Directed and produced by none other than Shonda Rhimes. The following drama is inspired by the article about Anna Sorokin titled – How Anna Tricked New York’s Party People. The series was premiered on the 11th of February – 2022 and since then it has been the talk of the town. Julia Garner can be seen playing the role of Anna in this series.
The story begins when Anna Sorokin, a Russian-born, under the name of Anna Delvey managed to trick upper-crust New York members into believing that she is a German heiress and she has access to a substantial fortune. She uses this image to defraud them and receive lots of money to complete her goal of opening an exclusive art-themed restaurant.
Julia Garner did her best to deliver an effortlessly beautiful performance although she is seen wearing the black jacket so much that people start referring to the outerwear as inventing anna julia garner’s black jacket. What happened next and did the authorities find her or not. You can know everything about her by watching this one of the most outstanding series on Netflix.
All of us are dead
If you are a fan of series that include zombies then this one might interest you. It is basically a South Korean drama series starring a talented cast that includes Park Ji-hu, Yoon Chan-young, Cho Yi-hyun, Lomon, Yoo In-soo, Lee Yoo-mi, Kim Byung-Chul, Lee Kyu-Hyung, and Jeon Bae-soo.

In this zombie virus outbreak, students must survive but they are trapped in a school with no food, water, and any source of communication, which btw, is cut off by the government. In order to survive, they must strategize something, or else they will end up infecting themselves.
The Adams Project
We understand that not everybody is a fan of the series, some people prefer movies. Therefore, we are more than glad to recommend The Adam Project. This American sci-fi adventure movie is Shawn Levy and the story is taken from a screenplay written by Jonathan Tropper, T.S. Nowlin, Jennifer Flackett, and Mark Levin.
The cast of the movie is consist of some great and finest artists such as Ryan Reynolds, Walker Scobell, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Garner, Catherine Keener, and Zoe Saldaña. The story starts when Ryan as a pilot from the future goes back in time and meets his younger self.
Since we have a very least idea about science fiction, we might not be able to elaborate on it the way it should be, hence, we’d suggest you watch it yourself but don’t forget to get some extra popcorn because this is going to be interesting. The movie has had no negative reviews since the day it was released which is the 11th of March, 2022.
Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story
Last but certainly not the least is Jimmy Savile. You might have assumed that this is like those typical horror shows that do not even have an element of being horror, but you aren’t correct this time.
This is a two-part documentary that states nothing but the facts about some of the unsolved mysteries. The series received huge criticism just because it is about a British TV personality. Tension began when after his death various people raised questions and complaints about his behavior and he was highly criticized and scandalized for being a child abuser.
Guess, the mystery would have been solved if people tries to speak up a little earlier. Since it is a complete documentary, you will be seeing several public figures talking about him on screen. But if you have a weak heart, you should better not watch it.
