For all the movie fanatics, or cinephiles, this could be the most visited, and engaging site to be at. There are a bunch of video streaming sites that are paid and free. To name a few –

Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Mubi, Youtube, Hulu, and Fmovies.

One of my favorite sites to surf for binge-watching movies, shows, etc. is Youtube and then Fmovies because the best part of the sites is that you can watch almost anything here, and all the movies and shows are readily available here that too free.

The second best to recommend is Netflix because that is also one of the most interesting places to be at. They have their original series which can be enjoyed without any disturbance, Ad-free, and you can even watch them with friends, and family by streaming your favorite shows or movies with your favorite people through Netflix watch party. This is the best feature and extension that can be used to enjoy your time.

Anatomy of a Scandal

If you are a fan of limited or miniseries like me then you should go for this one. Although the reviews aren’t that good about the show of how misleading it is or how poor the script is. But I personally enjoyed my time with this one. This show is for the ones who enjoy drama. I found it obvious and predictable at times but there is no harm to give it a try. This is a one-time watch series and falls into the category of psychological thriller, and legal drama. As it is a limited series so the number of episodes is 6 only, each of duration around 40 to 45 minutes. The cast is Michelle Dockery who is known for Burnt by the Sun, Downtown Abbey, and many such; Rupert Friend, Sienna Miller, and Naomi Scott. The show is written by David E. Kelley, Sarah Vaughan, Melissa James Gibson. It is directed by S. J. Clarkson and is based on Sarah Vaughan’s book.

Lucifer

The whole story revolves around the angel – Lucifer, who is handsome and powerful and was cast out of heaven for his rebellious nature. Bored out of hell, the devil decides to come back to earth, and starts a new life where he runs a nightclub and inadvertently becomes a consultant for the LAPD. The Lucifer TV show is based on the comic written by Mike Carey, which spun off from Neil Gainman’s, The Sandman. It’s a loose adaptation. You definitely crack up at the punchlines. The delivery of the dialogues and comic timing is equally good. The show is mystery, comedy drama and urban fantasy genre. It is suitable for the audiences 14 and above.

The Boys

Eric Kripke has developed an American superhero television series for the streaming service Amazon Prime Video. The series is definitely worth watching. The Boys is full of action, drama, dark comedy, satire, action, and superhero fiction. It’s based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. This was originally published by DC Comics. The rest should be discovered by you, so I leave it here with the IMDb rating of 8.7 but just remember one thing the audience for The Boys is 18+, so make sure of that you are one of the suitable audience before watching the series.

Locke & Key

The series revolves around a family moving to a home with some supernatural mysteries to unravel involving a set of mysterious keys. The series varies in the tone and quality. It has still a lot of potential and a lot to discover and is yet to open which you can find out in the second season as well. This show is here to captivate its viewers more and stick till the end. The top cast includes –  Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Jackson Robert Scott, Emilla Jones, and Petrice Jones. Wouldn’t like to go into detail with the plot then nothing much will be left for you to explore. So go ahead, and watch it this summer.
