Ever since the pandemic hit, the film and television industry seemed to flourish when it came to some aspects.
Because people were stuck at home and had nothing else to do, a lot of them resorted to watching everything and anything they could find on their laptops, mobile phones, or televisions. The boredom reached a point where people who usually only watch shows in their native languages started to change their train of thought.
When people started watching stuff outside their comfort zone i.e., shows which were in a completely different language, they discovered a world of amazing storylines and art. The number of new and old shows that popped up during the period of lockdown is too many. New stuff like Prison Heist, Dark, Boys Over Flowers, the Break, and many more came into the limelight.
But don’t be mistaken, new shows weren’t the only ones in the spotlight. A ton of old ones that were left dormant started getting more and more attention. This was the case for anime, video games, and even movies. Everything had a sudden surge in viewers.
