Netflix: Your Alternative to Ramadan Shows


A lot of people are able to enjoy Ramadan shows or at least endure them with their families. Others, on the other hand, cannot seem to find it in themselves to even give any of these shows a chance. If you’re part of the latter group, don’t feel left out when people gather around to watch Adel Imam’s new series, check out these five cool shows on Netflix instead!

1. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The police comedy has just wrapped up its fifth season and stars Andy Samberg, along with a hilarious cast, including Terry Crews and Chelsea Peretti. It might seem a little odd in the beginning (especially if you’re used to comedies with an audience) but the show very quickly becomes addictive.

2. Stranger Things

This show has become a classic and most people have either seen it or heard of it. If you are one of the people who hasn’t seen it yet, then this Ramadan you should check it out. It’s only two seasons and it will satisfy both the adult and child in you.

3. Limitless

This is a 22-episode show with just one season, based on the 2011 film of the same name which in turn was based on a novel. The show follows a drug called NZT which allows people to access parts of their brains they usually can’t access. it’s got some humor in it and it’s also pretty interesting in terms of the cultural view on enhancement drugs.

4. Lost in Space

Set in 2048 and inspired by the 1812 novel The Swiss Family Robinson, the show is (obviously) set in space as a family’s ship veers off course in their attempt to find a habitable planet. They land on a planet which offers them trials and tribulations as they try and figure out how to navigate their way back on course.

5. Everything Sucks!

Sort of in tune with the ambiance created by Stranger things, this show is set in the 90s but does not contain any superpowers or weird abnormalities; unless you count the abnormalities of everyday life. It is a must-see tackling everything from friendship and love to loss and the search for identity.
