8. Idiotest (2014)
Are you smart but don’t know how to use it to make money? Do you belong to a fandom that is in a constant state of war with another fandom? Are you not as stupid as you look? ‘Idiotest’ is just the place for you. In every episode, contestants belonging to staunch rival teams are brought to compete with each other on the grounds of intelligence and general knowledge. The winner takes home their dignity and a cash prize! The loser is just labelled an idiot. This might be a good thing for you to test yourself and find out where you stand.
7. 7 Days Out (2018)
Whether it’s a 2-hour movie or a 3-minute song, what you see is the finished product. The amount of work that goes behind is tiring and testing. Similarly, a great number of grand events happen every year, and we might see them on our TV sets for half-an-hour or for four hours, but the behind-the-scenes part is often obscured from us. ‘7 Days Out’ takes us to some of the most important events of the year and gives us a glimpse of the hard work and dedication that goes behind making these events come to fruition. Be it the Kentucky Derby or the Haute Couture Fashion Show or NASA’s Cassini Mission, every field requires the people who work every single day for months and years in the end. If you want to learn something about achieving your goals, then this will be a great learning experience.
