Netflix has always been a blessing. This is true especially for bachelors and hostellers or people living individually away from home. Netflix plays multiple roles- your comfort after a long or bad day, your company on Saturday nights alone, and your rescuer when you have to babysit a kid, etc. An all-rounder, it is. What happens usually though is that we end up watching all the popular shows and miss some of the TV gems which get shadowed.
This show is a combination of Harry Potter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Chronicles of Narnia. It is a show based on the book series, The Magicians.

A romantic and emotional sitcom, Lovesick was first Channel 4’s Scrotal recall. A nice guy is diagnosed with an STI and gets about contacting everyone he has met.
