And, as anticipated, the entire show takes the situation into a musical extravaganza. If you’re looking for a really entertaining musical show, then this is one of the top TV shows on Netflix that you should consider.
The Glow (2017 to Present)
Historically, most of us often ridicule and consider women’s wrestling a side-show. However, Netflix original Glow requires to flip the script on how this set show is perceived. It achieves this by portraying how a group of offbeat actors and prospective celebrities characterized by Betty Gilpin, Alison Brie, Britney Young and others, progress from nobodies to profound fame.
The Defenders (2017 to present)
This is a superhero team-up series based on your favorite Netflix heroes like Danny Rand, the Immortal Iron Fist. And, like most crossover specials, the story’s gist here revolves around how your favorite irritable heroes including Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Luke Cage fight to get on and not beat one another into the city’s pavement. Although you need to watch Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Luke Cage before watching Defenders, you needn’t watch Iron Fist first. This is because the series acts as an introduction to that character better than his show did. We expect Netflix’s The Publisher soon and, there’s a likelihood that it will tie into the end of this series. Therefore, ensure to finish Defenders before October comes around.
