During the 1990’s, with the dire lack of entertainment channels, the only few shows you ever get to watch in DoorDashan was Junoon, Jungle Book, Oliyum Oliyum(Tamil) and of course the daily news. Junoon , only next to CID, was the longest running TV series in Indian Television and was quite the craze around that time. Everyone was quite addicted to the show for several years and watched it religiously
Back to the 21st century in 2016 and now we are faced with a plethora of TV channels offering 100’s of shows and movies back to back , some even in HD content. In addition to this, NetFlix has also launched in India offering hours of quality entertainment at nominal prices.
You are now faced with innumerable choices in TV Shows and wondering which one to watch. Given the limited time to watch TV, I have put together a list of Fantastico TV shows that you should definitely watch and leave all the rest for a later viewing. All you need to do is to stream the content or get the DVD of the following shows, sit back and experience the thrill ride
