For many out there, watching a big show that has 4-5 seasons may be a tough job. Committing to a single show while moving on with life is not an easy thing, as it includes the risk of getting addicted to it or the fact of losing interest midway and not wanting to travel any more with the characters. And this is where the highly advantageous concept of mini-series comes in, giving us a complete story within the space of 8-10 episodes. Down here, are a list of ten solid mini-series on Netflix, which you can finish watching in a day’s time.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge brings her terrific writing skills to the fore with this sharp, hilarious and witty mini-series that left the audience asking for more.

Sacha Baron Cohen puts his comics in the back seat and drives forward this period espionage thriller that has lots of good moments. The acting is particularly phenomenal, and we get to see the dynamics of the infiltration through a magnifying glass. The fact that it is a true story makes this all the more enticing.

When people talk about mini-series, one that immediately comes to mind is Bodyguard, the highly intense and fast-paced series that had loads of suspense and spine-chilling twists all through.

An absorbing police procedural pictured on a missing teenage girl, and how a cop and a teacher come together to solve the problem. The suspense is maintained right till the end, keeping us pinned to the proceedings and the eerie backdrop of the show.
 

Unorthodox – 4 episodes

A sensitive and delicately handled mini-series that throws the perspective on a woman who flees from her Jewish community to join a musical troupe, only to have her past come back for her. It is a little biased and will not qualify as everybody’s cup of tea, but definitely a different path to tread on.

Based on the true story of ‘The Central Park Five’, this amazing mini-series concentrates on the discrimination and corruption that people go through and is extremely relevant to the current scenario; keeping in mind the events that are taking place in America.
