With streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar and Voot competing for your attention, it can be quite overwhelming to browse all of them to pick the perfect show for your weekend bingeing.

So we got Yami Gautam, a self-confessed TV addict, to list the shows she's watching on Netflix.


It's one of the best comedies I have seen in recent times. It's a French comedy. It's quite funny to watch a show based on agents and managers when you are an actor. It's quite deeply ironical and the show is funny as hell.


What better than to watch a book come to life about one of the most complex female characters?

NARCOS (Netflix)

A mafia-thriller with a heavy dose of reality can never go wrong. Pablo Escobar is one of the strongest characters ever. What kept me hooked was—how could he have been like this in reality?


Each and every character is so peculiar and has a story to share. It's hard not to fall in love with all of them. Also, the show manages to touch quite a few human rights topics in a subtle manner. It's a show that makes me laugh and cry and that's time well-spent.

SHERLOCK (Netflix)

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are simply the best, especially when together. To me, they make this series worth my time.
