A lot of times, we tend to get bored of tv series, and well, it is understandable because many of them take a lot of commitment to sit through. So, you could rewatch your favourite episode from your favourite show, or a movie that you really like; or, you could watch a really cool documentary and sound really smart or really interesting at parties. Here are some really great documentaries you can watch (some will require hogging your friend’s Netflix or Amazon account, others, not so much)-
Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened- This film tells us the story of The Fyre Festival, an event that was made to sound like it was the greatest thing mankind would ever see, but ended up being a colossal failure caused by the obscene overconfidence and lack of planning.
