    ...“They’re like palatable nuggets of wisdom coated with a strong layer of entertainment. The continuing storyline and fewer advertisements help sustain your attention,” says HR executive Sunethra Mahidhar, a fan of sci-fi comedy Star Boyz. The web series wave in the country began in 2014 with the show `Permanent Roommates’. It was a 12-episodeslong comedy that told the story of a couple who after being in a long distance relationship of three years face the prospect of marriage. Rated as the second most-watched long-form web series internationally, the show produced by The Viral Fever (TVF) became immensely popular within a few days of its release. Not to be outdone, shows targeting the urban, educated Tamils have also hit the cyber waves. ‘Black Sheep’ and ‘Ctrl Alt Delete’ are two noteworthy ones. ...

    ...While fantasy series have unlocked a world of unbelievable imagination, others with storylines deeply rooted in law, medicine, politics and journalism have unconsciously created impressions of these systems in the minds of viewers. “’Orange is the New Black’ (a show about a woman who goes to prison for a crime committed in her youthful past), deconstructs many hot-button topics like race relations, incarceration, governmental corruption, mental health awareness and police brutality,“ says Jyotsna Hariharan, graduate student in New York city. In ‘The Newsroom’, you’re exposed to life in a television newsroom where journalistic integrity takes centrestage and you’re in a dilemma if you give up on ratings for a good story. The dark game of politics comes to life in the compelling story of House of Cards, where you learn that the race to the top is ruthless. For many, these shows have kindled an interest in fields they were previously averse to. ...

    ...Well, almost everyone. There’s a faint light from a laptop in one of the bedrooms which subtly highlights the contours of the girl behind it. Beneath those furrowed brows are tired eyes that are determined to stay open to watch the screen. On the laptop screen, Dr Derek Shepherd is operating the third ventricle of a patient’s brain. His hands cautiously move the levers of the machine that clasps the first cyst and sucks it out successfully. Derek’s prowess sees him successfully extract seven cysts and it’s finally down to the last one. Just as he reaches out for it, the pressure is a bit more and the membrane gives way. The worm wriggles out and swiftly moves into the nooks of the brain. There’s panic, alarm and chaos… Afraid she’ll miss the climax, the girl ceases to blink. It isn’t until after this episode on Neurocysticercosis-which is the 15th one in season 5 of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’-is over and the finale is reached, that the girl notices the early morning rays slowly fill her room and the clock strikes five. ...

    ...I just put an incense but nothing great popped up.” “Someone put a lure too. Let’s head there.” This is a conversation between three strangers who happened to be at the Elliot’s beach at the same time on a warm, balmy Monday evening. While their exchange may seem like mumbo-jumbo to some, it is now the secret code that gives you entry into an exclusive group of Chennaiites—those who play the Pokémon Go game. Skip the introductions, bond over the game, delve into its magic, and revel in its absolute technological brilliance. Developed by Niantic and published by The Pokémon Company, the location-based application uses augmented reality which requires users to physically travel to various places in their locality to catch hidden Pokémon. Blending the virtual and real worlds, the game has struck a chord with the children of the 90s, being reminiscent of their childhood. ...
