5 Netflix Miniseries For Your Weekend Binge


We all like the best of 2 worlds. It’s a fact – at least Hannah Montana verified. After a jam packed week, it’s time to binge the best of Netflix. But neither do we want our shows to end up too quick or go on for too long. For the just the perfect watch, here are 5 Netflix Miniseries for your weekend binge. 

Unorthodox

This one’s all heart. A personal favourite, this 2020 German-American production attempts to elaborate on life in a Hasidic community. While the portrayal has been subject to a barrage of differentiating opinions, the attempt is stellar. 19 year old Esty (stunningly portrayed by Shira Haas) runs away to Berlin, breaking away from her Hasidic roots in New York – or at least she thinks so. With the past lurking around, the series follows Esty as she rediscovers herself amongst newfound freedom and opportunities. With a stellar supporting cast and a taught narrative, Unorthodox – which has garnered eight Emmy nominations – is a must watch. 

1994

It’s 1994. The political and social milieu in Mexico is anything but calm. Rocked by protests, assassinations and corruption scandals, some of it too reminiscent of modern day upheavals. The far- left militant Zapatistas have staged an uprising against the North American Free Trade Agreement. Presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio has been assassinated. An economic crisis breaks out soon after the new President takes office. And whatnot.

Through eye witness accounts and original footage, 1994 is a great Netflix Miniseries for understanding murky Mexican politics of the days gone by.

The Last Dance

Michael Jordan – a name that reeks legacy. That reeks brand value. For reasons all too obvious, the story behind the name deserves a show of its own. The 10-part series documents all we ever wanted to know about the basketball player. From his Early NBA days to Jordan’s ‘Last Dance’ with the Chicago Bulls – it’s all covered. Acclaimed for the execution and grandiose of the production, it’s all inspiration and emotion. 

When They See Us

The year’s 1989. A white female jogger was found in a critical condition in New York City’s Central Park. Raped and assaulted. The blame for the brutal assault quickly lands on five youth of colour. All juveniles. What follows is a relevant retelling of racial injustice, discrimination and faulty media and legal frameworks. 

Wild Wild Country

Sights outside the OSHO Meditation Resort at Pune in India are quite intriguing. People – foreigners and natives alike – walking about in deep red gowns in a pristine lane, most of them pokerfaced can look quite mystical. The 2018 Netflix show however takes you behind the mystique and enigma that was Rajneesh – or Osho, popularly. The Netflix Miniseries starts with Osho shifting base to a small town in Oregon back in 1981. Soon enough, he builds himself a utopian city – Rajneeshpuram-  the influence of which soon goes beyond the deserts of Oregon and forms into a national-level scandal. Provocating, intriguing, all in all entertaining without doubt.

There you go.

No, you prefer to kick start a new web series instead? We got you covered!
