Netflix’s claim to some of the best cinema right now is well and true. Home to many riveting TV shows, browsing through what to watch on Netflix can be overwhelming. Trust us, we would know. Coming up with a list that didn’t run into the hundreds was hard enough. Nonetheless, we circled in on a variety of awesome shows for your weekend viewing pleasure.
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.
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.
4. Money Heist
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.
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.
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.
