Two best shows to watch on Netflix
The internet is changing all aspects of human life. How we work, how we learn, how we socialize have all been influenced by the World Wide Web. Even our entertainment habits have changed due to the internet.
Netflix, the world’s biggest streaming service, is increasingly becoming our preferred source for fun and entertainment these days. But considering the quality of Netflix shows, it is not surprising at all.
1- The Crown
If you want to learn about history that is engaging and entertaining, then you cannot do better than The Crown. Created and principally written by Peter Morgan, The Crown chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to the early 21st Century.
The series is a gripping historical drama that reveals the Queen’s private life behind the locked doors of Westminster and Buckingham Palace. It will keep you glued to the screen as you learn so much about the private life of the Royalty.
No wonder, the show became a big hit among the audiences. And it also greatly influenced the way the British see the Royal Family today.
It is said that The Crown even influenced fashion and trends around the world. Since it first hit the screens, the online searches for ‘Blue Suit’, ‘Bow Collar’, and Turtleneck’ have skyrocketed. And it has also been observed that every time a new season is released, the Google searches for ‘Queen Elizabeth’ and ‘United Kingdom’s Elizabeth II’ greatly increases. The same trend has been noticed with searches for ‘Princess Diana’ and ‘Prince Charles’.
2- The Queen’s Gambit
The year 2020 saw some great television series but The Queen’s Gambit was probably the best of all. The show explores the life of a bona fide genius named Beth Harmon who clears one obstacle after another to become the greatest chess player.
Richly detailed, outstanding acting, and marvelous visual language have made The Queen’s Gambit one of the best television shows of all time. To achieve her aim, not only she has to defeat some of the greatest chess players but she also has to fight with her own personal demons too.
The Scott Frank directed show was a roaring success and earned rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. In just 28 days, it was streamed in 62 million homes, becoming the most-watched TV show in Netflix’s history.
It also made a big impact on their viewers and affected trends around the world. Since the Netflix series was released, searches for ‘Chess’ increased 88%, ‘Chess Move’ spiked 150% while ‘Queen’s Gambit’ rose 250% on Google. The show also did much to revive an interest in Walter Tevis’ 1983 book of the same name, which has now become a best-seller.
