Money Heist



“It’s more than your usual game of cat and mouse between a bunch of criminal masterminds and cops. Centred on two massive robberies, each episode shows pressure of an actual heist, especially when greed, power struggle and emotions get in the way, from the perspective of a robber as well as a hostage. Plus, if you’re low on cash during this pandemic, knowing how to plan a heist might come in handy!” – Sandeep

Man Like Mobeen



“I liked it because it touched on a lot of tough issues such as immigration and racism in the UK while delivered in a very comical manner. It was also the first time I saw a Muslim family portrayed in a Western comedy.” – Mazin

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Amazon Prime


“The best way to start a series is to go into it without knowing anything about it, and that’s how I got hooked on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. It’s hilarious in every way possible and the fact that it’s set in the late 1950s makes it even more quirky. It isn’t a typical sitcom or regular comedies as it runs close to an hour rather than the usual 30 minutes. Rachel Brosnahan, who plays the lead role delivers all her lines with the perfect wit, and now I know why she keeps getting nominated for her portrayal of Mrs. Maisel.” – Marlina

Call My Agent! (Dix Pour Cent)



“This France 2 production tells the story of the lives of talent agents working at a top Parisian talent firm. The acting is brilliant and the storyline reveals a different (sometimes ridiculous) side to show business that is often hidden from the public. There are also a cameo of appearances by big name talents in every episode from Juliette Binoche, Jean Dujardin and Monica Bellucci.” – Amylia
