As the weekend edges closer, Lebanese movie-lovers and TV binge-watchers race to prepare their next to-watch list to drift away into the amazing world that is the show industry.

Out of the countless Netflix titles, the following are the most-watched in Lebanon right now:

The beloved series has found its way into the hearts of a new generation of Lebanese fans and to the 10th spot on Lebanon’s list of favorite titles.
#9 Johnny English Strikes Again (Movie)
Rowan Atkinson’s third iteration of the hilarious spy-genre parody is just as whimsical and amusing as the previous two and has spiked in popularity in Lebanon when it hit Netflix recently.
Johnny English Strikes Again is a great pick for a movie night of endless laughs, and its PG rating makes it more family-friendly than a lot of other comedies.
