I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve written the phrase “circuit breaker” in the past week alone. If I had a dollar for every time I typed it, I’d probably be able to afford my BTO down payment in cash. Just kidding, unless?
Anyway, I understand that everyone’s probably bored out of their minds at this stage of the Circuit Breaker (there I go again), and it’s only been a week.
Now that you’ve caught up with whatever series you’ve been following, and there’s nothing left for you but jarring silence, allow me to suggest 6 heart-pumping, adrenaline-packed Netflix shows that are premiering throughout April to make the rest of your time in partial lockdown, a little less of a bore.
You know what they say right? If you can’t go out and get your dose of action for yourself, there’s always something on Netflix that will do the trick.
I’m sure I don’t have to remind you twice to catch one of the most anticipated series as of late. In case you’ve been living under a rock devoid of wifi—or the internet in general, Money Heist is about a group of young robbers who execute a dramatic, heart-racing heist at the Royal Mint of Spain, all in the name of the grand masterplan by The Professor.
In part 4, lives are on the line as the Professor’s plan begins to unravel and the thieves must fend off enemies from both inside and outside the Bank of Spain.
Who should watch it: Anyone who has always fantasised about conducting a grand, ballsy heist. No? Just me? Okay.
