What To Watch on Netflix This January, 5 Most Popular Bingeworthy TV Series
TheIndonesia.id - As one of the most popular streaming services, Netflix provides massive collections of classic and new shows. As of the new year, the platform brings more and more TV series that cross your must-watch.
To make it a little easier to decide what series to watch this January, we round up the 5 most popular Netflix series that are total gems and worth to binge-watch. Here are the lists!
1. Alice in Borderland
Alice in Borderland is a breakout hit series that is running its 2nd season. Season 2 has finally arrived after two years of its first batch of episodes.
Alice in Borderland is a Japanese drama showing people competing in sadistic survival games. If you are a big fan of the Squid Game series, you might love to watch this show. However, Alice in Borderland uses a more science-fiction approach.
A gamer named Arisu finds himself transported into an empty, parallel version of Tokyo. Then, Arisu is forced to compete in dangerous challenges to extend his visa, otherwise, he faces death. Alice in Borderland is based on the manga of the same name.
The spin-off of The Addams Family franchise shows the action of the elder Addams Sibling, Wednesday Addams. Jenna Ortega brilliantly portrayed the main character with her macabre and deliciously deadpan performance as Wednesday herself. Not to mention, the visual effect brought by director Tim Burton makes the show gothic, aesthetic, but fun to watch.
Wednesday was sent to the imposing monster boarding school of the Nevermore Academy after an incident involving a high school water polo team and unleashing a pack of piranhas.
While she didn't impress by the school for the supernatural students, she is soon tied up in tracking down the murderous monster, channeling her own physical abilities, and absolving her parents, the loved-up Morticia, and Gomez Addams, from a crime they are suspected of committing.
3. The Glory
The Glory is now the third most-watch non-English series on Netflix after Alice in Borderland Season one and two. The Korean Netflix original series features Korean legend actress, Song Hye Kyo as a revenge-driven leading lady seeking vengeance for being bullied as a child.
The Glory is the first revenge story written by Kim-Eun Sook, who wrote the scripts for the phenomenal Korean TV Drama Descendants of The Sun (2016), Mr. Sunshine (2018), and Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (2016).
4. The Recruit
The brand-new original Netflix series featuring Noah Centineo as the leading role shows an international spy action series. Noah played Owen Hendricks, a new CIA lawyer who discovered a threatening letter to expose the agency.
He must jump into action as he became entangled in the world of international espionage. With plenty of adventure, action, and satirical edge, The recruit is filled with a fun-ride scene that might satisfy spy-thriller fans.
5. Harry & Megan
Labeled as a Netflix phenomenon, the documentary records the detail of media and press intrusion towards Harry&Megan's relationship from the beginning. The documentary also records the first meeting of Megan with the members of the royal family.
Co-produced by the couple, the six-parted series really wants the viewers to absorb the behind story and the details experienced by Harry&Megan as the member of the Royal Family. The show also demonstrates the response of public reception to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
