WEB SERIES : ' TOP 5 NOW : 2020 '

This year marked the rise of OTT platforms, which, luckily for those in a Lockdown, churned out quality content at an unprecedented pace. Web series from around the world have had much to offer in terms of entertainment and introspection.

So as compiled from the Indian Express, here are 5 of the most successful international shows from 2020 which you must catch up on if you haven't already.

1.- 'The Crown' : Season 4.

Created by Peter Morgan for Netflix, The Crown traces the journey of Queen Elizabeth II, right from the time she is called up to ascend the throne after her father's death.

While it's mainly about the Royal Family and their interactions with each other, it also throws some light on the changing political landscape of Britain.

The Crown has given us a great show season after season but when the fourth season premiered on November 15 this year, it surpassed its predecessors. Of course, the inclusion of the Princess Diana chapter helped draw the crowd.

2.- 'Ramy' : Season 2.

This Hulu series has been lauded for its grounded and 'real' portrayal of modern American Muslims, who are usually seen essaying the more darker parts in shows and films.

It's refreshing change of pace and the way the protagonists tries to find some meaning amidst the entire cultural hotchpotch is new and exciting.

Acclaimed actor Mahershala Ali plays a pivotal role in the second season of the show as radical Sufi Sheikh.

3.- 'Mrs America'.

Created and co-written by David Waller, the FX series Mrs America first aired in April. The historical drama is based on the political crusade to pass the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1070s.

Lifted by a balanced, well written screenplay and the stupendous performance of the main cast which includes Cate Blanchett, Mrs America is equally engaging and entertaining.

4.- 'Little Fires Everywhere'.

The Hulu series starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington is a piercing tale of motherhood. It shows the audience that mothers are humans too and capable of making mistakes, telling viewers to regard them as living, breathing humans who love, lie and do their best to carry out what the world asks of them.

5.- 'Dark' : Season 3.

Dark is a science-fiction thriller that offers a one-of-a-kind immersive experience. Its narrative is complex, satisfying and takes time to sit well.

After a couple of children go missing in a German town, four set of families are forced to face some truly mystifying questions about life as they know it. The third season was received well by critics and the audience.
