14. While it’s not one of the TV shows for lockdown a lot of people also said they’re binging on Ludo Star

No doubt that it’s another national source of entertainment these days. After first appearing on the scene back in 2017, the app quickly became an obsession. After it was removed from Google Play for allegedly spying on its users, there came a new version pretty quickly and all’s been well since then.

This is the show that gave us another princess to obsess over, Meghan Markle. This show has been an obsession for Pakistanis for a while now and it’s not just because of the suave Harvey Spector or the smart Mike Ross, the whole sexy lawyer life is definitely going to keep you engrossed.
