Top 12 Web Series of 2019!


Hi Folks! As part of the Mindscape Reviews, you have already seen the Top 12 Books I Read in 2019. That leaves us with the other part of reviews – web series! I binge watched a lot this year. Some series were exceptional (Dark S02 & Fleabag S02) , some much awaited ones were a disappointment (Game of Thrones S08, Sacred Games S02 & Little Things S03) , some were just plain boring (Trinkets & Typewriter) while some were standalone great first seasons (Russian Doll & Modern Love.) And, I also rewatched my favourite shows (FRIENDS, The Big Bang Theory, The Office, Seinfeld & HIMYM.) I watched a lot of shows released in 2019 & also some amazing shows released earlier (The Golden Girls, Broadchurch & Bates Motel.)
Over the year, I made a note for all the web series I watched (because obviously I did.) Turns out, I watched 45 Web Series this year! Below are the 12 best web series of 2019! Have a look!



~~THE BIG BANG THEORY S12~~
After a long run of fun-filled, sarcastic & amazing 12 seasons, The Big Bang Theory has finally ended. I thought that the beginning of the last season was quite average, but as it progressed, the episodes were really good. And, as it has to be, the last episode was perfection, with all the feels!
Where to Watch: Netflix
IMBD Rating: 8.1/10
~~DARK S02~~
This was the best recommendation I received in 2019. This show is indeed dark & full of things that are so advanced, it is impossible to understand it entirely, let alone point out loopholes. It is about time travel & mystery. The kind of infinite & unpredictable stories that happen in this show are beyond anyone’s contemplation. This is quite underrated, but definitely a must-watch!!
Where to Watch: Netflix
IMBD Rating: 8.7/10
~~FLEABAG S02~~
I don’t think I need to say anything about Fleabag. When it won 4 Emmys this year, it was obvious that I had to watch it. And, after watching this show, I became a life time fan of Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Not only is she an amazing actress, but also a brilliant writer & producer. And, absolutely a perfectionist in all the three! Go watch it now & if you have, rewatch!!
Where to Watch: Amazon Prime
IMBD Rating: 8.7/10
~~DELHI CRIME~~
This show is in Hindi talking about the brutal & inhuman rape case of Nirbhaya which happened in Delhi in 2012. It is nail-biting, but it will also make you want to pause now & then because of the horrification of it all. The actors have done a great job in showcasing the story in the best way possible.
Where to Watch: Netflix
IMBD Rating: 8.5/10
~~UNBELIEVABLE~~
This is another show about rape cases & harassment to women. Two brilliant female detectives work together to solve the multiple rape cases that take place over a period of time. While solving the rape cases & throughout the show, it hints on sexual harassment that women face; outside, at the workplace & just about in any random situation. The story line & direction is really good. While the end is predictable, it still makes you obsessed about the whole situation & its intensity. You got to watch this in your leisure time!
Where to Watch: Netflix
IMBD Rating: 8.5/10
~~MODERN LOVE~~
I recently watch Modern Love, which is an 8-episode miniseries with 8 different stories of real people. These stories are inspired by a real-life personal essay from the New York Times column ‘Modern Love.’! It has amazing actors such as Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, Dev Patel, Andrew Scott, Cristin Milioti & more! This show is entirely WHOLESOME & make the most narcissistic & pessimistic person feel hopeful.
Where to Watch: Amazon Prime
IMBD Rating: 8/10
~~STRANGER THINGS S03~~
Stranger Things needs no introduction! We all are hooked to it. Young kids, monsters, evil corporations, girl with super powers! It’s all A-AMAZING. The third season is as good as the earlier two. Watch it, right away!
Where to Watch: Netflix
IMBD Rating: 8.8/10
~~KILLING EVE S02~~
The most wonderful things I like about Killing Eve is the women trio of actress Sandra Oh, actress Jodie Comer & writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge! (Did I already mention that I absolutely ADORE Phoebe?) This is such an adventurous & nail-biting show. You never know what will happen next. This is a must watch because of its unpredictable story line, brilliant direction & amazing actors!
Where to Watch: Hotstar
IMBD Rating: 8.3/10
~~THE GOOD PLACE S03~~
Kristen Bell starrer The Good Place is your stress-free & fun show to watch when you are not sure what to watch. I had loved the first season. Second season was average, but the third one is really good & picks up. Fourth season is on-going, but yet to be broadcasted on Netflix.
Where to Watch: Netflix
IMBD Rating: 8.1/10
~~CITY OF DREAMS~~
This was a show I did not expect to like. I only watched it because the actors are Priya Bapat & Siddharth Chandekar. I ended up liking it for its unpredictable story line. While some part of it can be anticipated, most of it is a suspense as the story revolves around politics.
Where to Watch: Hotstar
IMBD Rating: 7.7/10
~~RUSSIAN DOLL~~
Natasha Lyonne starrer Russian Doll is unlike anything you might have seen. You need to watch it to know what I am talking about. I loved Natasha’s performance in Orange is the New Black, which is the sole reason I watched Russian Doll & I was not disappointed. Not in the least!
Where to Watch: Netflix
IMBD Rating: 7.9/10
~~EUPHORIA~~
When the bogus season 3 of Thirteen Reasons Why came out, people started comparing it with Euphoria. While the former is just a teen with attention issues, the latter actually focuses on different types of addiction; drugs, sex, fame etc. It also promotes body positivity & getting out of toxic friendships & relationships. I loved all the actors, especially Zendaya, even when she is passed out most of the times.
Where to Watch: Hotstar
IMBD Rating: 8.4/10
