During this stressful period of time, it’s become a priority to stay indoors to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. As a consequence, this has basically cut off all forms of socialising, limited outside activities and left us inside to pass the time.

The good news is, though, that while you’re at home bored and out of ideas, you can dive straight into a new Netflix show – and you can binge on your favourite TV show without being judged. Whether you like action, mystery or sci-fi, Women Love Tech has got you covered with five Netflix shows that will keep you sane during home isolation.

1# Tiger King

Tiger King, Netflix

One of the most talked-about shows at the moment, the Netflix Original, Tiger King, is a true-crime documentary television series about the life of Joseph Maldonado-Passage, otherwise known as “Joe Exotic”. A show about murder, mayhem, madness and a vicious rivalry that possibly went too far. What did this big-cat-lover do to end up in jail?

2# Altered Carbon

Based on Cyberpunk, this Netflix Original immerses viewers in a dark and mysterious dystopian, Blade Runner-like world where people don’t die. Instead, they get transferred to different bodies (sleeves) via stacks. In Altered Carbon, follow the action-packed, twisted and dangerous life of Takeshi Kovacs, the only surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors, as he attempts to solve the murder of one of the richest meths in the universe – Laurens Bancroft.

3# Freud


With a little twist on history, “Freud” explores the journey of a re-imagined young Sigmund Freud, an Austrian neurologist, who gets entangled alongside a psychic and an inspector in a series of disappearances and murders in Vienna, Italy.

All of this on top of the fact that she has newly-found superpowers. If I were in her position, I too would not be okay with this…

5# Dracula


When Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania in the hope of sealing the sale of a stately house in London, he finds himself trapped in the company of a blood-thirsty vampire Count who’s ambition is to take over the world.
