Top Ten Best Netflix Original TV Series

The Top Ten
1 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.

Life-changing. Season 1 was perfect in its (apparent) linearity, featuring some great drama as well as very tense moments and atmosphere. The 2nd season was its natural prosecution with just a slight drop on average quality, but an amazing character development for Steve. Season 3 was, in my opinion, the most underwhelming to date, despite trying to explore new plotlines, however the final episode was one of the series' peaks. As for Season 4 there isn't much to say, it was simply phenomenal. Intriguing new and old villains, very few filler moments, incredible soundtrack, and a countless number of intense scenes. Out of 9 episodes, at least 4 ("Dear Billy" and the last 3) are masterpieces.
The actors offered very good to great performances too, expecially Millie Bobby Brown. Hats off to the Duffer Brothers.

2 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.

My favorite show of all time. A perfect mix of depression and comedy and many memorable characters.

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

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

3 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.

4 Marvel's Jessica Jones

Season one of Jessica Jones was fantastic. Wish we had more of Kilgrave!

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

5 Orange is the New Black Orange Is the New Black is an American comedy-drama web television series created by Jenji Kohan for Netflix.

This show MADE Netflix.
You cannot describe the feeling of first seeing characters that actually look and feel like you. It's just too much.

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

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

6 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

I told myself if this wasn't at least top 3 I'd kill myself. Guess these are my last words.

Why is Jessica Jones above this have you people even seen that show.

7 13 Reasons Why 13 Reasons Why is an American teen drama streaming television series developed for Netflix by Brian Yorkey, based on the 2007 novel Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. The series revolves around high school student Clay Jensen and the aftermath of high school student Hannah Baker's suicide. Before her... read more

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

No other show can hit directly to the core of your heart than this show. Period

So touching.
If you're listening to this tape, your one of the reasons why

8 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.

9 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is an American web television sitcom created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, starring Ellie Kemper in the title role, that has streamed on Netflix since March 6, 2015. Originally set for a 13-episode first season on NBC for early 2015, the show was sold to Netflix and given... read more

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 best shows on Netflix. Definitely better than 13 Reasons Why and Stranger Things.

10 A Series Of Unfortunate Events

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 was a series that would get darker with each season (just like movie-series' like Harry Potter or Star Wars).
Yet they said the 3rd season is MUCH darker than either S1 or S2 and that the last episode will be the darkest ever.

I can't believe Netflix rated it only PG and that they let even young people watch it.
Think about all the young ones traumatized by the dark scenes of S2 and S3.
My mom would never watch anything with me that gets darker with time (and I told her that includes Star Wars).

Any of you guys should read the novels, or look away before watching this.

12 The Crown

Alongside Hilda, this is one of the very few Netflix shows I love. As a fan of the modern British family, I just had to watch it. This show deserves more love. by the way it's a drama, not a documentary, so don't be surprised if some things or events are changed or fictional. To anyone who wanna complain about historical inaccruacy, I suggest watching a documentary instead.

13 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.

14 Big Mouth Big Mouth is an American adult animated sitcom created by Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett featuring teens based on Kroll and Goldberg's upbringing in Westchester County, New York, with Kroll voicing his fictional self.

Unpopular opinion: Big Mouth is better than Stranger Things.

15 Hilda

Best cartoon on Netflix. Hilda may seem like a typical Gravity Falls-style fantasy, but it is so original. The art style and visual is stunning, and main characters are so likable. Even the protagonist, Hilda's mom is likable, while most shows make a mother in a fantasy show look overly-stubborn like "This isn't real".

I love this show. It is super underrated. If you are into mystery, then please watch one episode. You won't regret it.

This show got me to enjoy mystery. Also season 2 is coming out. Yay.

16 Cobra Kai

The show is so good and should be top 5 with Peaky Blinders and Stranger Things.

Cobra Kai one of the best shows on Netflix. Can't wait for season 4!

17 Skylanders Academy

I used to love this show a lot. I enjoyed this show because it turned an underrated game into an amazing show. Check it out! If this looks interesting to you then watch it.

I loved this show and the theme song too.

18 Squid Game

Let's get this bad boy where it belongs!

I'm surprised that it's only 44, I thought that it was in the top 10.
I liked this series, the characters are wonderful and even the meaning and the history

19 Castlevania
20 Lucifer
21 The Punisher Marvel's The Punisher, or simply The Punisher, is an American web television series created for Netflix by Steve Lightfoot, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name.

When I'm having a stressful day, watching specific episodes of The Punisher truly helps. Russo was such a great villain. And the Punisher… a true bad a**.

22 The Queen's Gambit
23 Money Heist

Gives me huge prison break vibes... a phenomenal show!

24 Travelers
25 She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

This is easily an addicting show. I love this show so much. People think it is really girly, but it isn't. I loved every episode of it. Please watch this before you hate on it.

One of my favorite shows of all time.
