The Umbrella Academy (2019-present)

Name of the popular Netflix show The Umbrella Academy

Creator: Steve Blackman

Which number & character do you resonate with? The Umbrella Academy is an online show based on supernatural powers. It’s a fictional story set in a world where 43 women simultaneously gave birth on October 1, 1989. Even though none of the women showed signs of pregnancy before that moment. Seven of those 43 children were adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves. They were then trained to become superheroes under his guidance.

The series starts with the estranged siblings reunited as adults in the present day after Hargreeves’ unexpected death. Now comes the unpacking of the trauma Hargreeves caused with his extremely strict parenting. But in the midst of this they also need to stop the apocalypse from happening in eight days. Amongst all these crises they are also catching up in avoiding the wrath of a top-secret time travel agency whose goal is to protect their version of the timeline. You know like the usual family issues! The Umbrella Academy’s story maintains its intrigue and uniqueness in a world filled with on-screen heroes. The series is back with a new season and episodes. Check out to find out what happens next! 

Stranger Things (2016-present)

A still from the online show Stranger Things of lights and letters

Creator: The Duffer Brothers

This has been a favourite of most people around the world. Stranger things came with season 4 this year distributed into 2 volumes. This online show never fails to amaze me personally. Every season and episode is so well constructed that whether you binge watch the show or watch standalone episodes, it has so much to offer in each episode. Telling the plot of the show can give out a lot of spoilers.

So to safeguard you from that I’ll just do the basic one liner. The story is about a few kids (now teenagers), that are living in a city called Hawkins in the US. They start to experience “Strange Things” from another dimension. They also meet a girl their age in the first season itself, who happens to have supernatural powers. Having said that, she is also completely oblivious to the life and world we know of. The show deals with the town’s struggle and how these intelligent and so called ‘nerdy’ kids along with some grown ups fight to protect their town. It’s a highly addictive binge worthy show. Every season ends with more & more questions and open theories for the viewers to comprehend.

Bridgerton (2020-present)

Popcorn with the online show Bridgerton playing on TV

Creator: Chris Van Dusen

If you are one for the ancient British era aesthetics and tales then this  online show is perfect for you. The series has been inspired from the books of Julia Quinn. It’s a series of eight Regency romance novels released from 2000 to 2006. It follows the journey of the eight siblings of the noble Bridgerton family as they navigate London high society. These siblings are shown in search of love, adventure and happiness. The series is addictive with the second season increasing the intrigue factor as the female lead is an Indian girl. So check out the show’s extravagant costumes and dive into the era of 19th century England. Get involved in Lady Whistledown’s secret identity and fall in love with both season’s beautiful love stories! And hurry, watch it now before season 3 kicks in! 

Euphoria (2019-present)

Creator: Sam Levinson

Euphoria is an online show that explores characters layer by layer. It shows you the good, the bad and the ugly of each character. Euphoria displays the courage, strength along with the dark side of everyone. The show is definitely addictive and leaves you wanting to see more just to understand how these characters would move forward in their lives. For the fashion enthusiasts it gives the perfect edge and makes even the least fashion interested people wonder what visually represents them. Or how can they express themselves with their clothes & more.

The show follows a group of teens as they struggle through high school. Of course, along with the per usual of tests & crushes & teenage hassles – drugs, identity crisis, sex and even murder comes into play as Ruby “Rue” Bennett played by Zendaya, sloshes through the high school slog, recently out of rehab and desperate to find her place in the world. Along with the tremendous mindset layed out & character play, the cinematography, soundtrack, and story, as well as amazing performances on the part of the actors, keep the viewers stuck to their spots.

Invincible (2021-present)

Name of the online show Invincible streaming on Prime

Creator: Robert Kirkman

For all the anime lovers out there, here is your personalised recommendation! Check out this superhero series on the likes of DC & Marvel, drafted to perfection by Robert Kirkman. With a huge chunk of mystery imbibed in the show it confronts some of the most popular superhero tropes and asks the viewer to really think about the price of such powers. I would also like to warn the viewers that the visuals are of an adult superhero show as the bloodshed and fights are detailed graphics. The show has gathered a huge fan following and has kept the audience hooked to this online show. 

We are here to make your monsoons better with our recommendations. So wrap yourself in your cosy blankets, order your munchies from your favourite online delivery app, that is Milkbasket and dive into binge watch entertainment this weekend!
