DA MAN’s Top 20 List of TV Series to Binge Watch

Whether you are in COVID-19 self-quarantine or physical distancing, it makes the perfect time to binge on some of the hottest series today. So here are the countdown list of 20 binge-worthy TV series.

20. Watchmen

Featuring Jovan Adeppo & Andrew Howard, “Watchmen” takes super hero-themed series as well as the DC comic universe into a whole other dimension. If you’re a superhero or comic geek, and even if you aren’t, this is definitely a must-watch.

19. Grey’s Anatomy

We could not put “Grey’s Anatomy” out of the list when its one of the longest standing TV series (since 2005) and when we’ve had the chance to talk to some of its stars. The series goes deeper into the lives of surgical interns, residents, and attendings at the fictional Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital that’s more than just curing and healing.

18. Sex Education

The series tells about a socially awkward teenager who sets up a sex advice business with a bad girl slash social outcast, plus, the British humour really helps. The series is probably makes the best way of understanding how teenagers are nowadays when it comes to sex. Ultimately current.

17. How To Sell Drugs Online (Fast)

Based on a true story of how a teenager set up his own drug-trafficking business online, this one of those great TV series where you get to actually learn from the rise and fall of “illegitimate businessman,” so to speak. Its second season is scheduled to be release this year, so make sure you catch its first season (or you can read our interview with Maximilian Mundt)

16. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Police drama; check. Hillarious; check. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is a brilliant sitcom that’s based on what happens behind the doors of a police station. Besides, who doesn’t love a good cop show?

15. F.R.I.E.N.D.S

While waiting for the upcoming reunion, relieve the days when Ross, Rachel, Joey, Phoebe, Monica & Chandler journeys as young adults figuring out live in The Big Apple.

14. The Good Place

Ever wondered what’s life like after death? “The Good Place” makes a great interpretation of heaven and hell—and it features the talented Many Jacinto that we’ve interviewed back in 2019.

13. Kingdom

“Parasite” proves us that the Korean film industry is not to be missed. Think of it as the counter-culture “Games Of Thrones” meets “The Walking Dead” set a few years after the Japanese had invaded Korea—with less gore and sex but more epic battles, love story, politics, and of course, the zombies.

12. Rick & Morty

The series follows the misadventures of cynical mad scientist Rick Sanchez and his good-hearted but fretful grandson Morty Smith (yes, it’s an homage to Doc and Marty of “Back To The Future”), and it is the ultimate go-to TV series to binge-watch when you really just want loads of adult humour. Warning: it’s catching on.

11. Better Call Saul

Saul Goodman, the lawyer slash hitman and the crime location cleaning crew story is the prequel slash spin-off to “Breaking Bad” which fans have professed to be way better than the original series. It’s sixth and final season is set to be released in 2021, so be sure to check out its latest season—or watch it from the beginning if you haven’t.

10. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

What do you get when Sabrina, the teenage witch we all know from back in her cartoon days, gets a live-action remake and tries to defend herself from actual evil dark forces and creepy satanic cults, including lucifer himself? That’s right, it’s the “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.”

9. Explained

We’re kind of cheating here but this is technically still a TV series. A collaboration between Netflix and Vox, the show premieres new episodes weekly with comprehensive and easy to follow explanation to female orgasm, cryptocurrency, k-pop and other things interesting that you’d probably wouldn’t understand when asking to a friend or searching it on google.

8. Skins

“Skins” makes an amazing alternative and fresh take to teen TV series, as it centres upon the life of five kids in London. The show will keep wow-ing you with the eye-opening day to day experiences of London teenagers in contrast to the heavily exploited American teen culture.

7. Narcos: Mexico

Sure “Narcos” is as heavy as it gets in terms of a TV series in this list, but when you get to have a look at the nature of the Mexican drug trafficking (which involves loads of drugs, violence, treason, money, and more drugs) to how the American law system works in the most candid way possible, what more could you ask for?

6. American Horror Story

When you’re done with “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”, make sure you catch AHS; a complex universe and timeline (kind of like Marvel’s) to some the most horrific crimes and supernatural event ever recorded in American history. Plus it has a great cast, too, including Conor Donnally and John DeLuca.

5. Modern Family

If you love “F.R.I.E.N.D.S” that you’ll love “Modern Family.” The sitcom revolves around three different types of families with very different backgrounds (one of them happens to have same-sex parents) living in the Los Angeles area and their everyday endeavours which make a light, comedic, and warming comedy to follow.

4. The Grand Tour

If you’re an avid fan of “Top Gear,” then “The Grand Tour” should be on the top of your series-to-binge-watch list (and its super rewatchable, we guarantee it). Amazon brings back the trio of Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond to review cars, automotive and things in between in the most entertaining and relevant way possible.

3. Westworld

Human vs technology, or humanizing technology in this case, makes one hell of a good script when done right; and that is what “Westworld” is. Filled with the amazing cast and mind-blowing stories that could easily play your emotions, “Westworld” makes “The Terminator” sound like a cute bedtime story.

2. The Sopranos

Often dubbed the best TV series of all time, “The Sopranos” follow the leader of a New Jersey crime family as he juggles between his life of crime, his family, and seeing psychiatry (literally) while trying to not get killed. Aside from its great plot, it has super awesome characters (you just can’t get enough of Paulie). Enough said.

1. Barry

Not many know about “Barry,” but now you do. It is critically acknowledged as one of the best TV series to come out from the 2010s. It stars Bill Hader as an assassin who’s transitioning to an actor and trying to live a normal life while his former live keeps on catching to him.
