A few years ago, even talking about watching a documentary could turn anyone off. You see, documentaries were considered boring and not ideal for viewing when you were in the mood to binge. Then, Netflix came into the picture and there were a number of new documentary series which managed to bring us the best of both worlds – information and entertainment. Fact is stranger than fiction and add to that some of the best content producers in the world and we’ve got ourselves a whole lot of binge-worthy shows. Here are our top 3 –
1. Wild, Wild Country
If you are new to the genre, we recommend starting with this one. Super controversial and as unfiltered as it gets, Wild, Wild Country is about Osho, one of the most popular spiritual leaders and his right hand woman, Ma Anand Sheela who is even more formidable than him. We guarantee a few heated conversations with friends when you are done watching this. This one is shocking and full of revelations – what a great binge!
2. The Keepers
In a lot of ways, The Keepers is one of the most fearless pieces of content you will ever watch. It starts off by being a murder mystery – a nun is killed. And soon enough, it becomes a critique and expose of the entire Catholic Church and religion as a whole. The Keepers is sometimes disturbing but always compelling. We must warn you though, there are graphic descriptions of sexual assault and violence which could be triggering for some viewers.
3. The Ted Bundy Tapes: Conversations with a Killer
If you are a true-crime fan, this one’s for you. Ted Bundy is one of the most notorious serial killers of our time and this docu series is his story in his own words. Through different recorded conversations over time, this is a spine-chilling and wonderfully edited compilation of the man’s killings. We understand the psyche behind a disturbed brain and if you’re the kind who likes to give yourself sleepless nights, there will be many coming your way after this.
