Yes, there's another Netflix show that's about to ruin your social life

Batten down the hatches and say hello to Sacred Games, your new Netflix obsession

How on earth are you supposed to keep up with all the shows on Netflix? Every day there’s a new one and it is impossible to stay on track - what is one supposed to do? INFORM US WHAT ONE IS SUPPOSED TO DO.

Well, you’ve just got to give in and choose one. Choose two. Choose eight. Just submit to Netflix, it’s pointless to protest.

And here’s your next choice: Sacred Games. Which is supposedly the new Narcos, if you like that sort of thing.

And here’s the trailer:

The show’s official synopsis is also below for ya:

A policeman, a criminal overlord, a Bollywood film star, politicians, cultists, spies, and terrorists—the lives of the privileged, the famous, the wretched, and the bloodthirsty interweave with cataclysmic consequences amid the chaos of modern-day Mumbai. The series is based on the critically-acclaimed best-selling novel Sacred Games by author Vikram Chandra.

Lovely red mood lighting there, how sexy

The story focuses on Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan), a seasoned and cynical Bombay police officer, summoned by an anonymous tip one morning, a voice which promises him an opportunity to capture the powerful Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), criminal overlord of the G-Company. As the stakes mount and Sartaj seeks knowledge of his prey, it becomes clear that the game the two players thought they were engaged in is in fact part of a much larger scenario, one that expands beyond their city.

If that kind of thing floats your boat (which it does, doesn’t it? Why wouldn’t it? That boat of yours will never sink), then you had better draw those blinds and get sessioning once it hits Netflix on July 6.

When will we be able to leave our homes again? Never. You are now a slave to Netflix forever.
