It’s been a long quarantine and it doesn’t seem to be getting over. But there’s a lot to watch on your favourite OTT that’ll also make you smarter.
1. Patriot Act
The satirical show featuring Hasan Minhaj takes up everyone from Modi to Trump, China to Saudi Arabia and explains it in bite-size nuggets. And tongue firmly in cheek
2. Last Week Tonight
Just think of this as Patriot Act but with a white guy hosting it. Funny and informative, Last Week Tonight doesn’t pull punches and takes no captives.
The brilliant show produced by Netflix and Vox takes macro concepts and explains them in a manner that even a 10-year-old would understand.
4. The Crown
The award-winning drama around the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II is the history lesson you’ve always wanted in school.
5. Our Planet
In this ambitious Netflix documentary of spectacular scope, David Attenborough narrates how climate change impacts all living creatures.
