The Best Shows on Netflix Right Now
If there's one thing I'm really good at, it's binge-watching shows on Netflix.
I'm always finding new shows to watch on Netflix. Some shows I can binge-watch in a weekend, and others I hardly make it through a season before giving up. With that being said, I have a list of what, I think, are the best shows on Netflix right now. And I'll also tell you why.
Side note: these are in no particular order...besides #1, because Breaking Bad is #1. Always.
1. Breaking Bad
I really don't need an explanation as to why this show is the best. It just is. I've never met anyone who has watched it and not liked it. It's just that good. If you haven't watched it yet, get with it.
I really liked this show. It's a close second with Breaking Bad. There's a different "hunt" every season, so it keeps things interesting. The main character, Dexter, is always pursuing someone different in every season, so you don't have to worry about the same boring story line.
3. Stranger Things
I gave this show a shot early on and eventually moved onto something else. However, when Season 2 was about to come out, I tried again. I'm so glad I did. At first, the idea of the cast being made up mostly of younger kids didn't appeal to me. The second time around, I fell in love with the show and now I can't wait until Season 3.
I came across this show by mistake, but I'm glad I did. It only has one season out right now, which is a bummer, but it's a great suspenseful show. There's a lot of twists and turns, so it keeps you entertained.
5. How to Get Away with Murder
I LOVE this show. It follows a group of law students and their professor as they try to cover up their various wrong-doings. There's sex, murder, back-stabbing, and secrets. Give it a shot.
6. Making a Murder
Is Steven Avery guilty or innocent? Decide for yourself. This single-season show had EVERYONE talking when it first came out, and rightfully so. This story will captivate you and have you passionately arguing either for or against the defense. You'll be a lawyer by seasons end.
7. The People vs. OJ
Maybe I'm really into crime shows? This is a reenactment of the famous OJ Simpson case/trial and it does a phenomenal job of telling the story. He's guilty. I'll just leave it at that.
8. The Good Place
Again, I came across this show on accident, but it's actually pretty good. It's a fun "filler show", as I call them, to watch between binge-worthy shows. I watched it within a week and I'll watch Season 2 when it's released.
9. Orange is the New Black
GURL POWER. I left this show at first as well, but I eventually went back to give it more of a shot after it got a lot of hype. I really like it. There's WAY too much time between seasons and I always forget what happened the previous season by the time the next one comes out, but it's still a great show.
10. The Office
My boyfriend watched this show over and over and it drove me CRAZY. I thought that if I heard the intro music one more time, I'd lose my mind. Every time we sat down to watch TV or hang out, he'd try turning it on and I'd put up the biggest fight. However, one day I was tired of arguing and I just sat through it. Turns out, it's actually pretty funny and I was shockingly surprised. Girls, give it a shot.
11. Santa Clarita Diet
I love Drew Barrymore...always have. So, I had to check this out when I got the chance. It's another good "filler show", and the second season was just recently released. Sure, it's about brain-eating zombies, but in a fun and quirky way.
12. 13 Reasons Why
I feel like everyone should watch this show because it has such a great meaning. It took Netflix by storm when it was released. I remember reading the book years ago, but the show is so much better...and I usually never say that. Be prepared to be in your feels every single episode.
While I'll admit that it fell off a little bit after the first season, it's still a good show. This corrupt family makes my family seem pretty normal. The second season was a tad dull compared to the first, but it's still worth watching.
I'm sure there's plenty more that I could name, but these are the ones that stick out to me at the moment. What's your favorite show on Netflix?
