20 Best Web Series Of 2019 That Should Be On Your Must-Watch List

This year, I’ve failed miserably to keep up with my New Year Resolutions (but most successfully kept up with all the Kardashians) as I’ve indulged myself with multiple web series across different platforms. I. Just. Can’t. Stop! With Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar and YouTube at my disposal, I can say that I have become a serial watcher and here are a few web series that I absolutely loved this year.

    Netflix Web Series I Cannot Get Enough Of

    Whenever I have any free time on my hands or when I’m Shuttl-ing to work, I’m either watching a new series on Netflix or rewatching an old one. These are the ones I’ll definitely watch again and again...

    Insatiable

    Patty is a bullied, overweight teenager with anger management issues who gets fit and it changes her life. Bob is a civil lawyer-turned-beauty pageant coach whose career is under fire after getting wrongly accused of molesting an underage client. What happens when this vengeful teenager and the pageant coach decide to work together? A lot of drama, suspense, and a few casual murders; definitely not your average teen rom-com!

    Derry Girls

    This is one of the best shows I’ve watched this year! Derry Girls follows the lives of Erin, Orla, Clare, Michelle, and James, a bunch of clueless teenagers who are growing up in Northern Ireland during the last years of the Troubles. Their crazy incidents (imagine accidentally killing a 98-year-old nun, not able to attend a concert as there’s a polar bear on the loose, accidentally setting fire to someone’s house with flaming shots and flooding a house where a wake is being held) make this a fun show to watch. You’ll fall in love with every character’s innocence and how they’re just trying their best to stay out of trouble. Oh, and that Irish accent is as awesome as the show.

It’s one of the most talked-about web series of 2019 and it’s a must-watch!

    Santa Clarita Diet

    Joel and Sheila are your average couple who work in the real estate business. While on the job, Sheila gets sick (like really sick as she throws up a LOT) and dies...and she comes back to life. Sheila is feeling great and energetic now; she is different. But Sheila is really hungry all the time. Sheila is now a zombie and she wants human flesh!

    This dark-comedy is unlike anything I’ve ever seen and it’s hilarious how Sheila’s husband is ‘arranging’ kills for his wife! The show has been cancelled, but the three seasons still make me go LOL!

    Web Series To Bingewatch On YouTube

    I usually turn to YouTube to watch makeup tutorials and really old TV series I grew up with (remember 90210 and The Simple Life?). Believe it or not, YouTube does have a stock of your favourite TV shows, all it needs is some researching… But it also has some new ones that will stay with you forever.

    Minus One

    Powered by POPxo, Minus One is a sweet web series about a couple, no wait, an ex-couple. It’s one thing to stay friends with your ex and another thing to STAY, in the same house, with your ex! Riya and Varun are former flames who are living together as flatmates. Lots of fights, drama and super sweet moments - this show is a fresh take on the modern-day relationship.

    The Beautiful World Of Jeffree Star

    If you’re a beauty enthusiast, you’ll probably either LOVE Jeffree Star or won’t be able to stand him at all. The self-made beauty mogul is known for his brutally honest makeup reviews and of course, his eponymous brand, Jeffree Star Cosmetics. Shane Dawson, another controversial YouTuber, did a dedicated series on Jeffree that gathered millions of views across the globe, giving our inquisitive souls a much-needed sneak peek into his world of makeup.

    His second series premiered this October and showed us the entire process of how products are being produced, from the idea to its execution to marketing. The much-hyped about series is a must-watch if you wish to watch something hatke today.

    TV Series On Amazon Prime That Cannot Be Missed

    Amazon Prime has had a great year! They have produced so many memorable web series in 2019 and I just can’t wait for what they have in store for 2020. Here’s my fave list in case you want to catch up.

    Elementary

    This new-age Sherlock is a perfect treat for those who love a dose of mystery. The story revolves around the dynamic detective duo who solve the most grueling cases. Acting as consultants to the NYPD, Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson will keep you glued to your screens as they solve the most unbelievable cases of murder, kidnappings and terrorist activities. It’s also interesting to follow the story of Sherlock’s dead lover who is, in fact, a mastermind in the criminal world and had been alive this whole time.

    Just Add Magic

    If you need to clear up your mind, Just Add Magic to your life. Kelly Quinn, Darbie, and Hannah are childhood BFFs with a common passion for cooking. While looking for a recipe book, they stumble upon a vintage cookbook with the most outlandish ingredients. Kids being kids, they go to their favourite coffee shop and ask the owner to provide them with those ingredients and she actually has them (there’s a reason why she is the ONLY person in town to have so). On cooking these recipes, they realise that it’s actually a magical cookbook and those ingredients? Yes, those are magical too. Surprise, surprise. Although this is a show for kids, I really do enjoy watching it for the days I need a little bit of magic in my life.

    Skulls And Roses

    If Splitsvilla and Roadies had a love-child, this atrocious show would be the result! Skulls and Roses is not your average reality series and you definitely cannot watch this with your parents!

Raghu Ram and Rajiv!
