Some Web Series/Shows to Watch #MyFriendAlexa

Hello Friends,
I am back again to share a dope on the web series that has been kept me glued.
In the past few months, it has been an overload of law, murder, and mystery for me.
I started with Suits having a Corporate Law backdrop followed by How to Get Away with Murder. This one is a masala filled with suspense, mystery and lots of surprises. Scandal another law theme-based show reflects the politics behind the world of American Politics.
There were some thrillers which I am a huge fan of like Bodyguard, Rook, and Dark. Also, some Indian web series like Made in Heaven and Mind the Malhotras.

 

🎓 SuitsAmerican drama series

Starring Gabriel Macht (Harvey) who recruits Patrick J. Adams (Mike Ross) a talented college dropout as his associate, as he manages to impress him with his knowledge not knowing the truth that he isn’t a lawyer. Set in New York they are part of a law firm handling the top Corporates in the city. It’s about the evolution of the characters and the firm itself, their equation with each other and the challenges they face. The main characters Harvey, Mike, Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle), Louis (Rick Hoffman), Donna (Sarah Rafferty), Jessica (Gina Torres) each have their plus and minuses and despite everything how they overcome to keep their firm going on is what the series is about.

🤓What to watch for: All character stand out in their own way but my personal favorite is Harvey Spectar what a character, a performance I feel of a lifetime. With the final season running currently I will surely miss Harvey and Donna.
💻Where to watch: Amazon Prime or Netflix

🎓 How to Get Away with MurderAmerican drama series

Thinking how this is a law based series? Well hmm, in this series most of the laws are broken for the good or bad you have to check it for yourself. It has completed 5 seasons with the 6th about to start. The premise of the show is how Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) who teaches law at Philadelphia university picks up 5 students and how they get involved in a murder plot. The story runs with lots of cliffhangers which you need to pay attention to. You need to focus on the timeline to get the story correct. From one to another murder how the lives of the students and the associates working with Annalise intertwine, is what the series is about. I have totally binged watched this one.

🤓What to watch for: For the mystery, suspense, different characters – a complete package.
💻 Where to watch: Netflix

🎓 Scandal American thriller series

The show revolves around how Olivia and her team want to get justice for people however the center point is always the Oval Office.

The story is based out of London about Myfanwy Thomas who wakes up near the London Millennium Bridge only to realize that her memory is wiped out. Through various events which follow she discovers that she works for a Britain’s secret service agency called Checguy. The series is about how she reconnects with who she is. The initial pace of the story is slow and might seem confusing but it builds up as you go on. Its a decent attempt to keep you engaged, nothing extraordinary.

🤓What to watch for: The storyline.

Dark German TV series

As the name suggests this one has a lot of mysterious elements which keeps you puzzled. Initially, you may get a feel what is going on but as the story unfolds you are able to connect the dots. If you don’t like cliffhangers then wait for the finale next year and watch the complete series otherwise just go ahead. The character evolution and the storyline keeps you gripped. The story is based out of a small German town where a kid goes missing and how they are unable to trace them, the story connects the relations of 4 key families across 3 timespans. Trust me it could question your intelligence! It’s about the dark side of time travel.

🛑 Made in Heaven & Mind the Malhotras Indian Web Series


So, with an increase in population watching web series, Indian web series is on a roll too. We have some good content coming up on various platforms. Different story concepts have been touched upon through these web series, unlike the usual saas-bahu dramas which are accustomed to watching on the idiot box.
Made in Heaven is directed by one of my favorites Zoya Aktar so it has to be on my watchlist. Unlike the positive reviews shared across I have mixed feelings for the show maybe because my expectations from Zoya are very high. The basic backdrop is about Tara and Karan who manage some elite weddings in the country. Tara herself is married to a top shot but how? Karan is a homosexual and is his life simple? Hidden secrets behind weddings is it dark or bright? Watch the series to get answers to these questions.
Mind the Malhotras echos the monotony which sets in a marriage once you have been living together for quite some time. It’s a light comedy. Cyrus Sahukar and Mini Mathur are refined actors and totally worth a watch.

🤓What to watch for: Made in Heaven reflects some complex issues of Indian life while Mind the Malhotras is a light comedy reflecting the dullness which comes in a marriage after a few years.
💻 Where to watch: Amazon Prime

From the previous posts, I am awaiting the finale for Blindspot this year and next season of Manifest excitedly. I am keen to know what are thoughts if you have watched any of these series or which series have you been watching. Waiting to hear from you 🙂

  1. I love Suits too. I have not watched any others on your list, but I’m adding them to my watch-list! But right now, I’m watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine, This is Us, Grey’s Anatomy, Young Sheldon and Blue Bloods. Do check these out when you get the time. 🙂

  2. Suits! Bodyguard! How to get away with murder! Made in Heaven!
    Yes, yes and YES! Scandal and The Rook have been on my To Watch list forever now. I mean to watch them one of these days.
    Oh, this post has made me so happy! 🙂 So many of my favourite shows!!

  3. Great web series recommendations! Im a binge watcher and have watched these; all superb ; mind the Malhotras is fresh on the block ; currently binging in Outlander

  4. These are some awesome suggestions. I enjoy binge watch web series, Suits , Made in Heaven, Dark are my all time fav web series. I am yet to watch Scandal.

  5. These are some really interesting series. Just finished the Sacred Games-2 series and now looking out for something interesting. Guess will zero in on Scandals.

  6. I always thought to watch web series but never get time coz of kids off course. After reading this list I am curious to see them .

  7. Wow! These shows look really good… Thank you for sharing this list… I am going to binge watch next weekend! 🙂

  8. Wow! What a list…Now a days, web series are more popular and convenient compared to TV and You have compiled the nice ones. Will watch!

  9. I am on the lookout for some good series too all the time.
    I have mixed feelings reading your review, only because i have a different opinion on some of the shows and for some i an in agreement with you! And i think that is so wonderful about blogs like yours – it gives a window into a different opinion and allows one to think about our own experience of it.
    2 examples. –
    The Rook -I liked it.

    second, the malhotras series, i took the membership to watch this show actually, and lost interest by episode 2! i was quite crestfallen!

    The Dark is a new one and i havent heard or seen it yet… definitely adding it to my TBW watch – thanks for the reco 🙂

    1. I am glad to read your perspective about the common series.
      My initial reaction with Rook was what is going on can we like move a bit fast but as it progresses the story keeps you involved.
      Mind the Malhotras you need to watch it for 2-3 episodes to get the hang of it because the pace and storyline kind of remains the same thought the series.
      If you are watching Dark watch it till the end don’t give up it will keep you interest you.

      1. Haha….now here we both agree! I too wanted to tell them to get on with the secrets already! 🙂 i will go back and try malhotras again. Dark i checked out after reading your post, it is dubbed but interesting premise! Scary too

      2. Yes Dark is dubbed coz it’s a German series. It’s not scary it’s too mysterious and it takes time to get a hang of the story.

  10. I as a principal keep at a hands distance from web series. For the simple reason that I feel I will get so engrossed that I will get sucked in. But yes, the names that you have mentioned are some popular ways

  11. The list is great infact I have watched a couple of them like suits and the rook. Right now I am waiting for God friended me season 2 and Mirzapur season 2. Hope is doesn’t disappoint like sacred games 2

  12. I’ve seen a few of the series you’ve mentioned here. The German series, Bodyguard and How to Get away with Murder are now on my “To Watch” series! Seriously addicting, isn’t it?

  13. Suits is my personal favourite. It’s addictive. I couldn’t stop at one episode and Harvey Spector is the MAN. I just fell for him. The murder is also nice. Looks like u r into suspense and thriller kinda stuff. U will love Dr. House too. Keep watching n keep sharing.

  14. Thanks for sharing these reviews. I am a totally Romcom viewer and I have watched only Scandal and Made in Heaven in ur list. Started the Malhotras but gave up soon.
    #wordsmithkaurreads #MyFriendAlexa #BlogChatter

  15. You have come up with an interesting list of web series to watch. I have already seen some of them and will surely add the rest based on your reviews. Thanks!

  16. Surprisingly I havent watched a complete season of any of the mentioned shows. A great list to add on to my watch list. Nice compilation.
    #ContemplationOfaJoker #Jokerophilia #MyFriendAlexa

  17. I want to wat h Dark season 2 but before that I need a proper recap of season 1…been so long. And that storyline was so mind bending

  18. Thank you mahek for helping me with webseries. I was looking for the reviews of made in heaven…. See I got it. 🙂 I guess Netflix has more good series than amazon prime.

    By the way you can try watching Barot House (Zee app). It is also good. Thriller.
