( Scenario: You're innocently scrolling through your For You page on TikTok when you come across a minuter clip from a series you haven't really seen nor heard of before. Then, you watch; it piques your interest, prompting you to look at the caption or the comments until you find the title—or a part two, three, and so on and forth. And, like magic (a.k.a. the TikTok algorithm), your FYP is filled with more clips of the series until you've had enough and want to watch and rewatch the whole series in full, without the by-parts, edits, or the Subway Surfer or Minecraft videos spliced next to it.

We list a few titles, both completed and ongoing; old and new, which clips you may or may not have seen too much of on TikTok, and where to actually watch them.
