As the need to stay indoors is rising with the rising number of cases every day, so does the number of movies and series you need to add to your streaming list. If you’ve got TV fatigue and feel like your brain is slowly broken down into a ball of mush from all the drama and reality shows you’ve been watching, it might be the best time to twirl your viewing choices and opt for interesting documentaries instead. I have concocted a list of 5 documentaries you can indulge.
