Top Ten Best Netflix Original TV Series


The Top Ten

1 Stranger Things Stranger Things Stranger Things is an American science fiction-horror Netflix original television series created, written, directed and co-executive produced by the Duffer Brothers, Matt and Ross Duffer, as well as co-executive-produced by Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen.

Stranger things is a perfect mix of horror, mystery, and action. It is easy to become addicted and is different from other shows. Something about the characters makes it just a great thing to watch.

It's my favorite show so far. What's great about it is that it makes you feel the suspense at the end of every episode. It always leaves me wanting for more. I suggest people to watch this. - TheFourthWorld

It's one of the best shows I watched so far. It had great characters and an interesting storyline. I highly recommend watching this.

This is my favorite show and this is recent but RIP DAREDEVIL. I mean the show not the actual character.

This show deserves the #1 spot. It's addictive and just overall incredible. The building drama is just incredible. - maarilynmaanson

This show's been really successful. I don't watch it, but its seems interesting. - keycha1n

So funny, I can't stop laughing in each episode! - shinebrightlikeadiamond

I just finished the last series yesterday! It ends at a cliffhanger 😭

3 13 Reasons Why 13 Reasons Why

I love this show so much people complain about it when to be honest it teaches teens how to actually behave and people hate it because sadly it's relatable and true - Froglamb

I'm watching the first episode right now. It's good so far. However, this show is very controversial for its subject matter. - Cartoonfan202

My favorite show

Pretty good - LightningBlade

4 BoJack Horseman BoJack Horseman BoJack Horseman is an American adult animated sitcom created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg. The series stars Will Arnett as the title character, BoJack Horseman.

Never have I seen such an accurate portrayal of depression and self loathing in my life, should be #1 without a doubt

Finally an animated series that isn't afraid to be very dramatic - Kellen

A hilarious new comedy about a washed up actor who just happens to be a horse! - Songsta41

5 House of Cards House of Cards House of Cards is an American political drama web television series created by Beau Willimon. It is an adaptation of the BBC's mini-series of the same name and is based on the novel by Michael Dobbs.

This isn't just a best Netflix original show, it's one of the best shows ever!

No question about it easily number 1.

Above 13 Reasons Why NOW - 445956

6 Marvel's Jessica Jones

I'm gonna get killed for this, but I enjoyed this show more than DD.

7 Marvel's Daredevil

Best choreographed fight scenes in a T.V. show ever. Wilson Fisk is the most entertaining marvel villain ever other than Loki or tom Hiddleston. WATCH IT - cbrann10

This should be way higher in the list I love this show! - MerlinHaynes

I have to see it because I like Daredevil

8 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Tina Fey's talent as a comedic writer is once again evident in her second sit-com. Great writing, unique characters, & lots of great references/actor callbacks for fans of her previous creation, "30 Rock."

One of the only original shows that isn't MA - simpsondude

One of the best shows on Netflix. Defiantly better than 13 Reasons Why and Stranger Things.

This is hilarious should be higher - Froglamb

9 Narcos

I'm surprised this isn't top 3! This show is awesome! But I'm glad stranger things is number 1 because it's my favorite show. I would have narcos at either 2 or 3 though.

10 Master of None

Whoever hasn't been graced by this show yet is seriously missing out. Of all the dramedies that have come from Netflix, none have come so close to capturing what it truly means to be human as the endearing 20 episode series from Aziz Ansari. With laughs that range anywhere from highbrow subtlety to easy innuendos to all around fun observations on the single life in New York, to emotional gut punches I won't mention as to avoid spoilers, this show is a richly entertaining roller coaster of emotions that Ansari has graciously granted everyone a ticket to ride. Just don't hold your breath for Season 3. It won't be here for a long while.

The Contenders

Sucks and isn't a Netflix original - 445956

Can't wait for series 2 this season. good acting and a great storyline

It's not a Netflix Original (it's from the CW). Might be good but does not deserve to be on this list. - markusw0207

It may not be a Netflix original but it’s a great show

15 A Series Of Unfortunate Events

Amazing. On a scale of 1-10, I would give it an 11. (Stranger Things fans screaming in the distance, myself included)

Count Olaf is the best villain ever!

Series 2 is the best! - HufflepuffGeekGirl

I first saw the 2004 movie with Jim Carrey when I was young, and again when I was at school, and it was interesting.

I watched this with my mom, it was very entertaining, and she thought it was too, though she thought it was a bit weird.
The story was about the parents' house being burned by Count Olaf, and the 1st season was spot on.
The 3rd episode had a jumpscare and the last episode was the most intense of S1 by far, with skeletons, a man about to be sawed in half, and one of the side-villains fell into a furnace (though offscreen).

When I saw other people's experiences, they saw S1 & S2, and they said S2 was too dark and grim for children, like Harry Potter, with lots of intense sequences of murder and sexual innuendos, as well as a bit of profanity.

Yet while I knew this was comedy, I also realized it was a drama, so it was a dramedy, and it includes psychological thrills.

I realized me and my mom should've read the novels 1st, knowing that this ...more - Gregory

28 Fuller House Fuller House Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber are among the original "Full House" cast members who have returned to star in this spinoff, "Fuller House." D.J., now widow and a mother to three sons, finds herself back in her childhood home alongside her sister Stephanie, an aspiring musician, more.

Full house was better.

I love Kimmy in this, and yeah, Fuller House is great. Thanks, whoever added this to this amazing list. Ramona (Sonia Bringas) is gorgeous! It may be inappropriate for younger audiences, but besides that, it's awesome. Full House is great too! You guys need to watch it! This and Series of Unfortunate Events. I was watching Supergirl, but then Alex turned gay and all the kissing Maggie Sawyer stuff happened *spoiler alert*. So it's not good anymore. It's also the same stuff constantly. Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) is really pretty though. Anyway, go Fuller House! VOTE FOR FULLER HOUSE, OR ELSE...ok, I'm done now. :D :P

It's so good that it got renewed in less than A MONTH after debuting on Netflix. Very underrated show that is fresh and entertaining. The soundtrack is fire, too. I believe that its fanbase will continue to grow and OMB may soon become as big as 13 Reasons Why. - OnMyBlockFan

Really great and funny show. Ending to season 1 was sad so I hope the next season will resolve it

Really funny and good show with a diverse cast

Its funny, intense, cool, and has a great story plot
