10. Into The Badlands: The amazing choreographed fight scenes will catch your attention. Sunny and M.K. must travel across the Badlands controlled by seven barons in a post-apocalyptic America in this martial arts drama. The series is set in a post-apocalyptic world around 500 years after a war that left civilisation in ruins. It is not like the other movies here with mind bending stories. It is a simple predictable straight action film. Into The Badlands is more like watching a good Tony Jaa film.

8. Sense8: Created by The Wachowskis, Sense8 is about 8 strangers who can jump into each others mind. Indian film fans has a surprise in this one. It is entertaining and engrossing, and addictive that you will ignore some of the flaws in its logic. Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter says ‘Sense8 is probably better described as a series you experience more than understand’.
7. The 100: Ninety seven years after nuclear war has destroyed civilization, one hundred survived juvenile delinquents are sent down from space to see if a post-apocalyptic Earth is survivable. The show really interesting. Will get you hooked! It keeps you on the edge of your seat.
6. Altered Carbon: The story happens in the year 2384 when your memories can be digitised, and can be downloaded. It is also a murder mystery. The awesome visuals and mind bending script is worth your attention. There are holes, but it’s an easy show to get addicted to, if you give it a chance.
5. Daredevil: It is popular for its brilliantly stylishly choreographed action sequences. Mark Hughes of Forbes rated it as ‘Daredevil’ Season 3 Is Mighty Marvel-Netflix Excellence’. The blind Murdock uses his other senses to fight crime on the streets of New York. Well that is enough plot for a super hero subject. You will not be disappointed if you are a fan of Marvel Super Hero films.
4. Stranger Things: One of the most popular web series ever. Nominated at Best Golden Globe for Best Television Series Drama. You don’t have to be a web-series fan to dig into this series. It tops the ‘best’ list of tv series in majority of the surveys, and lists including Forbes. Gets better and better with each episodes. You will not regret watching this.

Tasha Robinson of The Verge wrote ‘Netflix’s Dark is hard to watch, and impossible to stop watching’. Yes that is exactly our view also. It is so gripping with the strange story line.
2. Black Mirror: Started in British Channel 4. Soon Netflix purchased. Veronica Lee of The Arts Desk says ‘a wonderfully accomplished piece of drama, beautifully acted and directed, and pitch-perfect in its writing. Catch the next two instalments in the season if you can’. Black Mirror is a British sci fi anthology series created by Charlie Brooker.
1. Jessica Jones: Directed by Melissa Rosenberg. Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones is fantastic. It is more like a detective movie. Jessica Jones first season was premiered on November 20, 2015.
