Assane\’s father is framed for the theft of an expensive diamond necklace by his employer, the wealthy and powerful Hubert Pellegrini, and hangs himself in his prison cell out of shame, leaving the teenage Assane an orphan. Twenty-five years later, inspired by a book about gentleman thief Arsene lupin his father had given him on his birthday, Assane sets out to get revenge on the Pellegrini family, using his charisma and mastery of thievery, subterfuge, and disguise to expose Hubert’s crimes.

3. Stranger Things
The story revolves around four friends, the upside-down world, Demogorgon(monsters/ Mind Flayer). One of the friends ‘Will’ goes missing, And this leads to a wonderful mystery. The girl Eleven who has strange powers helps bring things back to control. The whole cast is terrific (this writer personally was very pleased to see Winona Ryder back in the thick of it). However, it\’s the young leads who steal the show. Scurrying around Hawkins on their bikes in the dead of night and hunkering down in basements trying to find their missing pal, they will melt your hearts, especially Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven. It’s a good pick for all suspense lovers.
People hear predictions on when they will die. When that time comes, a dead angel appears in front of them and kills them. The series sees an alternate version of Earth overrun by monsters primed and waiting to drag humans to Hell – which leads to the creation of a religious cult, the New Truth Society. It involves crime drama and fantasy. It’s a well-scripted series with some mind-blowing plots and is a must-watch series.
5. Sex Education
Set at the fictional Moordale Secondary school. While the show is British and filmed in the UK, the setting of the school and surrounding area in the show is specifically vague, with Netflix producers intentionally using elements of both British and American school experiences. Everyone has, at some point in their lives, experienced the soul-crushing, please-swallow-me-up-Earth awkwardness of discussing the birds and the bees with their parents. It’s a rite-of-passage.
It follows the lives of the students, staff, and parents of the fictional Moordale Secondary School as they contend with various personal dilemmas, often related to sexual intimacy. Fresh and easy to binge due to its fun, young cast, you may go in expecting crass humor – and you’re going to get some along with the heartfelt life lessons learned by its core crop of kids. It really helps you to give you the basic knowledge about sex and other stuff. It\’s good and you should give it a try.
