Chosen from a wide selection, there are shows that will leave your sides in stitches you chuckle (Rick and Morty), some that will make you scratch your head (Dark) and show that, so salacious that they have a huge fanbase (Sex Education).

Below you’ll find 10 Netflix TV shows you should all check out, even if it’s just for a one-episode taster.


1. Sherlock

Some suspense. Some mystery. Sherlock launched in 2010 and immediately had the feeling of a show that would be beloved for years. Even once you know how all the crimes were committed it still bears repeat viewing for the beautiful friendship between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.


2. Peaky Blinders

An absolute British bit of TV starring Cillian Murphy as crime boss Tommy Shelby. The show follows as he runs rackets post World War I with his flat-capped gang, The Peaky Blinders is that gangster with philosophical ideas that may have you questioning social morality.

3. Sex Education

The latest season of Sex Education has landed. This series follows a group of youths trying their best to meander sex, friendships, relationships and their own identities. Look to laugh and be educated on a subject that is no longer taboo.

4. Money Heist

An absolute hit, Money Heist continues to be one of the most intriguing shows on Netflix. This Spanish-language bank heist show is one of the most frenetic you will watch, and all the better for it.

5. Girlfriends

Eight seasons of this classic will have you reflecting on some of the most vital and trivial matters that make some friendships worth  lifetime.

6. Dark

Dark transcends the crime genre and morphs into a freaky, brain-expanding exploration of time and space. But it keeps at its core a gripping mystery of kids that keep disappearing from a small town. We suggest you watch in German but with English subtitles – the story is more gripping that way.

7. The Crown

Season 4 of The Crown is the latest and, the series has undergone a time shift with Claire Foy’s queen being replaced by the brilliant Olivia Coleman who is now joined by a young Princess Di (Emma Corrin) and Prince of wales. If you’re new to the show, you have two superb seasons to catch up on, which recount the romance between Prince Philip and Elizabeth, and so much more.



8. How to Get Away with Murder


Viola Davies is exemplary as Annalise Keating, a law lecturer who mentors a ragtag of students. Their world is thrown into a whirlwind of suspense and thriller as questions regarding the death of a young girl seemingly implicate each one of them. If you are looking to not step out of your room this weekend, then this show is just want you need.



9. The Umbrella Academy

Based on the comic book series by Gabriel Bá and Gerard Way (who once fronted emo band My Chemical Romance, fact fans), The Umbrella Academy is a delightfully take on the superhero genre. At its heart is a dysfunctional family of super-powered misfits. Plus, it features ’90s R&B star Mary J. Blige. No, she doesn’t sing but she dresses up as a dog mask-wearing assassin and that’s something to check out.


10. Rick and Morty

End your weekend binge with the zany Grandfather and grandson duo who skirt through the galaxy on crazy adventures which usually end in cataclysmic events. The dark humour in this is so brazen that you might gag on whatever popcorn you are chewing.
