It was a year when there were few movies and many web-series, thanks to the lockdown in 2020. It was difficult to pick the winners as I binged more than one would in a normal year (who didn’t!). Nevertheless, here is my lists of the best i saw this year. This comes with a standard disclaimer that I have not seen many of the shows and movies across platforms, hence the universe of selecting them is limited. The list is arranged in no particular order of preference.

5 best English web-series

  1. I may destroy you (Hotstar)
  2. The Queen’s Gambit (Netflix)
