Lately, we have been binge-watching shows not just on weekends but also on weekdays.
It’s the after effects of staying at home for more than 6+ months right?
I will not blame you if you are in search of new shows that have good content, interesting storyline, different culture, and regional references too.
After all, how much of the same drama can we keep watching? After a point, they all seem to feel alike. Then there is our Indian TV Drama that seems to move at a pace that’s even slower than a turtle.
Even in my house, there is a need to find and shortlist the best TV series across all genres and regions. While I was performing this search, I landed into the soup of the famous Turkish TV Series. Mind you, they have some of the best Drama, Romance, Thrill, and mystery series.
