I don’t know about you but I love the Netflix original series. And the reason for that is all the episodes are released at once so you don’t have to wait a week for the next episode.
I love watching Netflix while I am cooking or working around the house. That’s why I have gone through quite a lot in the last few months and decided to share some good picks for you. After all sharing is caring. So here we go
1. Queer Eyes
A new Fab Five set out to Atlanta to help the city’s straight men refine their wardrobes, grooming, diet, cultural pursuits, and home décor.
I just love this show. The Fab Five do a fantastic job at helping people. The contestant are really deserving people and seeing their transformations is uplifting. The end of almost every episode leaves me in tears. Throughout the transformation process you get so invested that you feel with them. The perfect show to watch when you are feeling down. It will cheer you up instantly.
2. Patriot Act
In this weekly show, the former Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj brings his unique comedic voice and storytelling skill to explore the larger grim trends shaping our fragmented world.
Hasan Minhaj talks about serious topics and problems in a funny way and manages to raise awareness and keep the viewer entertained at the same time.
Genres: Comedy, News, Talk-Show
Set in 1977 the series follows two FBI agents who study the minds of criminals to understand what makes them do the horrible things they did. And start to develop a system to catch these kind of criminals.
It is very interesting to see how the FBI started using behavior studies to catch criminals. It will only be interesting for you if you are interested in these kind of things. If not it will be very slow and dark for you.
Genres: Crime, Drama, Thriller
4. Grace and Frankie
At lunch Grace and Frankie are told by their husbands that they want divorces. The reason for that is the both men, who also work as partners have also been romantically involved for the last twenty years and now that gay marriage is legal they want to get married.
It´s very funny to see how Grace and Frankie try to cope with this new situation with the support of their adult kids especially because they both have very different personalities and end up living together.
5. Haunting of Hill House
Explores a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past, some of which still lurk in their minds while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House.
If you are a horror, mystery and thriller fan this is the right series for you. It is jam packed with mysteries which are raveled in each episode. You get suck into the story once you start watching you cant stop.
Genres: Drama, Horror, Mystery, Thriller
6. Fuller House
I remember watching Full House as a child and enjoying it a lot. Fuller House is a spin-off series based on the hit ABC family sitcom Full House (1987-95) created and executive produced by Jeff Franklin for Netflix.
D.J. Tanner-Fuller is a recently widowed mom to a 13-year-old named Jackson, 7-year-old named Max, and a newborn son named Tommy. After realizing she is unable to cope with the demands of holding a full time job as a veterinarian in addition to raising three kids, her sister Stephanie and childhood best friend Kimmy, who is also the mother of a 13-year-old daughter, offer to move in to bring up her children.
Genres: Comedy, Family
7. Money Heist
A group of unique robbers assault the Factory of Moneda and Timbre to carry out the most perfect robbery in the history of Spain and take home 2.4 billion euros.
This is originally a Spanish series and the story is very interesting. The idea is to commit the perfect crime by robbing the national bank of Spain and to get away with it. There are so many nerve raking moments when you think okay it is over now but they somehow manage to keep going. Do they get away with it? Well you have to see it yourself.
Genres: Action, Crime, Mystery, Thriller
8. One day at a Time
Three generations of the same Cuban-American family living in the same house: a newly divorced former military mother, her teenage daughter and tween son, and her old-school mother.
It is a funny sitcom about an immigrant family and their everyday problems and experiences. On a deeper level it highlights recent problems in our society.
9. Santa Clarita Diet
Sheila and Joel are married real estate agents in Santa Clarita, California. When Sheila dies and turns into a zombie their lives take a dark turn.
It is funny to see how cool Sheila’s family is with her being a zombie and how this brings her family closer to one another. It’s not very serious but nice to watch when you need a laugh.
Genres: Comedy, Horror
10. Marvel´s The Punisher
Former Marine Frank Castle takes the law into his own hands and takes revenge on those responsible for the murder of his wife and children. And uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
I loved the first season it is highly addictive and once you start watching you cant stop.
Genres: Action, Adventure, Crime, Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller
