Glow

Glow – best Netflix original series

3 seasons, 30 episodes

GLOW is original, funny, and entertaining. Although originally renewed for a fourth and final season, the streaming network reversed its decision given COVID-19-related production problems. Still, you should take the time to binge the first three seasons about the 1980s’ syndicated women’s professional wrestling circuit — the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW). Alison Brie shines as Ruth ‘Zoya the Destroya’ Wilder but it’s Betty Gilpin’s Debbie ‘Liberty Belle’ Eagan that has captured the hearts of critics and the public alike. 

Master of None

Master of None

3 seasons, 25 episodes

Aziz Ansari’s Master of None is a post-racial dating and relationship sitcom about millennials. Like the better dating sitcoms of the past, the series still manages to capture the anxieties of dating, of new relationships, and of settling down, only it successfully brings in texting and social media into the mix naturally and without calling attention to itself. It also explores intimacy without resorting to gender stereotypes or relationship clichés. It’s new, and unique, and most of all, it is kind. It’s a good series about genuinely good people, and the chemistry between Ansari’s character and his love interest (Noel Wells) in the first season is electric. It’s not laugh-out-loud funny, but Master of None is funny in its observations, clever in its writing and honest in the depiction of its characters. It’s a truly great sitcom and something of a roadmap to dating for a new generation.

American Vandal

2 seasons, 16 episodes 

American Vandal deserves a spot on this list for many reasons. Chiefly, its sheer originality. The mockumentary is basically a parody of the true crime documentaries that still seem to capture the world’s attention — we’re talking SerialAbducted in Plain Sight and especially Netflix’s Making a Murderer more. Keep national trends in mind while watching, and remember: Anyone and everyone can be the Turd Burglar

The Punisher

The Punisher

2 seasons, 26 episodes 

Netflix’s sixth Marvel series falls victim to the same problems that have beset the previous Marvel series, namely it takes a strong character and stretches the story entirely too thin. Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) is, save for Jessica Jones, arguably the most compelling character in Netflix’s Marvel universe. He’s a villain in the second season of Daredevil, but a dark anti-hero here, a man who has zero regards for the lives of bad people, who he pummels and tortures to death. Castle is a grim character, but — thanks to the buddy partner dynamic with David Lieberman (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) — there are moments of levity and occasional doses of humor in the first season. The show’s follow-up run lags a bit, but it introduces fans to new characters who test Castle’s carefully constructed persona and force him to reckon with his past in interesting new ways.

Dead to me

2 seasons, 20 episodes

Christina Applegate returns to TV with this grief-com about a woman trying to pick up the pieces after her husband is murdered in a horrible hit-and-run accident. Applegate plays the angry, grieving widow with equal parts humor and empathy while Linda Cardellini plays her sunny, optimistic best friend. The two meet in a grief group and navigate the challenges of moving on after loss while also solving a murder mystery. There’s no way you’ll know what to expect here, which is half the fun of watching and the show dispelled any worries that it couldn’t keep up its cliffhanger-heavy intrigue with a second season that saw Applegate and Cardellini involved in a new, just-as-illegal cover-up.

Sex education

3 seasons, 24 episodes

S.E.X education is now the top trending show on Netflix. This British dramedy is gearing up for its third season, and has likely been Netflix’s most surprising win. Focusing on a socially awkward teenager and his sex therapist mother (a stellar Gillian Anderson), the series has been praised for its subtle sense of humor and extreme sex positivity both commercially and critically. Not often does British humor so effortlessly translate to American laughs, but Sex Education has managed to cross-over thanks to its warm heart, John Hughes-inspired high-school antics and anything-goes approach to the awkwardness of teen sexuality.

BoJack Horseman

BoJack Horseman

6 seasons, 77 episodes

A showbiz comedy about a self-destructive ’90s sitcom star who happens to be a horse isn’t exactly an easy sell. BoJack is, after all, a show about humanoid animals that’s also a stark meditation on the nature of depression, greed, addiction, fame, obsession, abuse and generational trauma. Against all odds, it’s one of the funniest shows on television, rife with visual gags and acidic turns of phrase and unafraid to go to dark places and rebound with moments of tenderness.

Miraculously, the show stuck the landing, going out on a high note with the reflective, heartbreaking season 6. BoJack will make you cry. Whether it’s due to laughter or its gut-punch narrative – again, about a talking horse – depends on what episode you’re watching. 

Peaky Blinders

Peaky Blinders

5 seasons, 30 episodes

Peaky Blinders got 8.8/10 in IMDb, so this is why it is listed in the best Netflix original series you can’t miss.

Being a British import licensed in America exclusively by Netflix, Peaky Blinders is roughly the UK equivalent of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, taking place in the same time period and covering similar terrain. It’s got British gangsters, and while bootlegging and gambling are involved, so is the IRA, Peaky has one thing that Boardwalk does not, however, and that’s the piercing, intense Cillian Murphy, who plays something akin to Prohibition-era Boyd Crowder. The show also features Tom Hardy as a phenomenal recurring character in seasons two and three (along with Noah Taylor). It’s addictive, violent, intense as hell, and it manages to seamlessly blend roughly-accented melodrama with historical events so everything feels timely and modern.

Narcos

5 seasons, 50 episodes

There’s no business like the blow business for the infamous Medellin drug cartel kingpin Pablo Escobar, and the DEA agent tasked with his takedown. Narcos looks into the gritty world of the drug trade and how one man stacked his pieces just to have it all torn down. The show is juicy and oddly historically relevant in equal measure.
