Top 7 Series to watch this week on Netflix, Prime, Apple TV+, and Disney+ (December 2020)


Besides being obsessed with creating double-tappingly good content, our team is obsessed with films, tv shows, and documentaries. To the point that we noticed on average, our team watches at least two films, one series, and one documentary every day (or night).

Where do we watch them? Mostly on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, and Disney+.

So we are making it a tradition to suggest Seven handpicked series to our readers every Tuesday.

However, keep in mind that these series are not chosen based on Popularity. We suggest these series because we believe they are good content and they worth the time viewers spend watching them.

So look no further, because we got your week covered:
