Here’s What NetFlix Have In Stores For Creatives.
Getting into a pair of comfortable pyjamas, sipping a cup of coffee, and diving deep into a screen that is what has been the story of this year 2020 so far. And this is for most of us. I have been way too religious when it came to watching Netflix.
Not getting out of bed before finishing a season. . .
Comfortable pyjamas and coffee wasn’t my biggest concern though. My biggest concern was to find a charging cable long enough for me to take my cell-phone, or my MacBook wherever I was in the house.
Thankfully I didn’t find cable that long, and thanks to Netflix for keeping me so busy, that I forgot the thought of going out to look for it too. But I did discover something valuable, that was trying to hide from me for a while, but eventually were left exposed.
What was it ? Any Guesses ?
I found shows, serieses and documentaries that were so important for me to watch them. They didn’t just help me get pass through the tough time because of the situation that we are all in. But it did help me learn few things, and put them to use too.
Now I can say proudly that I didn’t waste my time pretending to be working from home. I used my time well and gained plenty of things.
I know I know you are already in your pyjamas and waiting for me to tell you what are those shows. But hold your horses. First you must do something about that coffee which goes pretty well with this kind of shows. They will certainly make you feel home.
Is your coffee ready? Then let’s unfold these mystery of shows, serieses and documentaries that are about to enhance your knowledge quotient. . .

Today people may perceive ‘MINIMALISM‘ as an impossible thing to attain. But the fact is when you call a person or his lifestyle minimalist, what it describe is that they lead a very simple life. Minimalism is about living with less.
The documentary presents minimalism as a simple lifestyle that can be or should be lived by everyone. Millburn and Nicodemus do a good job explaining why that is.

12) Print The Legend
If you are a tech freak or love how the technology industry has been revolutionised in past years then this documentary is for you. Get your popcorn tub ready and sit tight. You will definitely see the comparisons with Steve jobs and apple/microsoft battle but they are all done very subtly.
This documentary is more inclined towards the tech and business aspect of 3D printer, and not the science aspect of it. But if you love techs even for fun then I’d recommend this for you.
13) Have You Seen The Listers
This documentary takes the viewer on a ride with an Australian artist who started out very unassuming, to becoming well known in “art circles,” having major peaks (and perks) in his life (wife, children), to nearly losing his sh17.
If you are an art lover and want the glimpse of how an artist lives his life this one’s for you. I am not very fond of such movies but again it won’t hurt to watch it and you may learn something from his mistakes.
14) Cabins In The Wild
I know almost all of us likes to go on a vacation. It’s the destination that differs from each other. But if you can go to vacation through the help television then I am pretty sure this is it.
Fortunately logic and taste persist with this particular series, so the cabin that did win was truly the better one and the build by far the most deserving, so it was a rewarding experience to watch until the end.
