The world is fighting the pandemic 'coronavirus' which began from China's Wuhan city. It has taken the lives of thousands of people and has affected over lakhs. Where some people are calling it a disaster some are referring it as a way in which mother nature is rebooting itself. There are countries that are at complete lockdown and people are being advised to stay indoor which is giving them ample time to do what they don't do generally. Watching movies, tv shows, reading books, comics, etc is one of them.

Well, that's not enough--there are plenty of other shows be it cartoon, tv shows or web series that have previously talked about the same and you should definitely have a look at them.
