Between numerous calls, meetings, paperwork – we hardly get any breathing time during the week, don’t we? So, when the weekend rolls around, it feels like an oasis, where you can just eat, relax, go out with friends, and chill. But seeing the pandemic situation, going out with friends is a tad bit risky. So, the alternative? We suggest ordering pizza, making some popcorn, and binge-watching some great shows and movies on Netflix. But, what to watch? Here is your weekend watch list.
