Youtube is a rabbit hole of content that you can binge. If you want to watch some series that you can’t find on Amazon Prime or Netflix. Youtube could be a great alternative. I am not talking about Youtube Red content and Youtube rentals. I am talking about free kinds of stuff that got uploaded on Youtube for free. They are all Legal, so you won’t be breaking laws watching.
There are full movies and series that got uploaded on Youtube that are considered piracy. So I will not recommend them at all because I don’t want you to break laws.
Cobra Kai Season 1
This series is the canon continuation of the 80’s classic The Karate Kid. (Yes! not the Jaden Smith remake) This critically-praised web series started as a Youtube Premium show, but the 1st season is now free.
Public Domain movies
Many films from the 1930s and 1940s are now in the public domain. Just search for the Keyword Public domain, and you will see a library of classic movies from Hollywood’s golden age. I highly recommend movies of the actress Hedy Lamarr because she is the reason why we watch movies on our phones now. She invented Frequency Hopping. Her creation is the reason why we enjoy Wifi and wireless gadgets now. One of the first things you will discover about movies from this era is the Unique accent of actors. Hollywood invented an accent called the Transatlantic accent. Most media from the 1930s to 1960s use this accent.
This Animated Web series may Look like Anime, but it is American made. The show started a Kickstarter project, but its success manages to spawn eight seasons. All seasons are available on Youtube. You can now Binge the first season as an hour and a Half movie.
If you wanted some break from Hollywood contents, Asian content can be a great alternative. Especially if you are a bit sick of the “Woke media” we have now these days. Some tv Networks from Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand, Philippines, and India are now uploading Asian dramas on Youtube with English subtitles. These shows are legally uploaded by their actual owners. There is also a Youtube channel called Muse Asia that legally uploads full Anime episodes but sadly is not available for all countries.
