Netflix TV Shows List
I use my son as an excuse to stay home at night, just so I can do as I please. You know how it is. Grab the cozy blankets and a bottomless snack. Grab the remote and a drink that I get can reach without moving.
Starting a Netflix Tv Show takes some serious dedication. I don’t want to be bothered. When you find a good one, its best to treat it like the special occasion it is. I’m convinced that this is a new age hobby. The problem is finding a good one.
Out of hundreds of movies you’ve seen on Netflix , you can easily count how many good ones you’ve seen. Bad ones? The limit does not exist. Same goes for tv shows, except those are hours of your life you will not get back.
I just made a list of my all-time Netflix favs, so you don’t have to spend your free time sorting through crappy recommendations.
1. How To Get Away With MurderShonda Rhimes continues to bless us with hit after hit. HTGAWM is my all-time favorite. HTGAWM is about college kids and their professor/mentor Annalise Keating doing and covering up some majorly questionable and sketchy shit. It all starts with one episode and suddenly you can’t look away. True to Shonda style, it keeps you on your toes and your heart will break. All 3 seasons are currently on Netflix, which means you need to rid yourself of plans, like yesterday.
2. The OfficeDoes this one really need an explanation? If you haven’t watched it by now, it’s because you’re in denial of its greatness. I just wanna talk and show you what you’ve been missing out on. FireSafety. The Dundies. Pretzel Day. Dinner Party. Honestly I can’t count how many times I’ve watched these episodes over and over.
3. Master of NoneThis show is critically-acclaimed for a reason. NGL, I thought it was gonna be about babies because of the first episode. Aziz Ansari is Nev, a not-really starving actor comedically navigating his way through life in his 30s. Each episode takes on a different topic/theme, with the episode about his Parents being my favorite.
4. ArcherOK-So I probably would’ve never even watched this show if it weren’t for Doug. Archer follows the life of a spoiled spy at his mother’s agency, with a few slips along the way. It’s sarcastic, funny, and crude. The characters are enjoyable. It’s one of those TV shows, that no matter what mood you’re in, you’re gonna enjoy it.
5. Stranger ThingsAre you living under a rock? Serious question.
Stranger Things is a mysterious hit show that has a 70s vibe. Missing kids. Supernatural Occurrences. The Man. Christmas Lights. It draws you in and keeps you hooked, reminding you of one of those really good vintage sci-fi horrors. No wonder the world is anxiously awaiting the second season.
6. Parks and RecreationJust get past the 1st season. Honestly, maybe skip it. The characters don’t truly develop until the second, where they grow into their own. I’m convinced it’s the characters who make the show what it is. All the seasons are on Netflix, meaning you need to cook up some waffles and Treat Yo’ Self. The gag reels are all on YouTube, so you can still relive the fun after you’ve finished it!
7. Fixer UpperChip and Joanna make binge-watching HGTV worth it. I can only stand so much of the fake drama with Property Brothers and Flip or Flop. Their kids are totes adorbs and they make the houses actually look like home. Even if you’re over the farmhouse look, especially shiplap, she has done some pretty incredible french country and industrial transformations, too. Lastly, their family is a joy to watch and the transformations are incredible.

8. SlasherThe title pretty much sums it up. Slasher takes place in a small Canadian town, where a newly wed couple move back home. Saying someone is happy about their return would be an understatement. Very enjoyable to watch, but it did leave more to be desired. The story is compelling and the plot takes unimaginable turns. Unfortunately, it only has 1 season.
9. MTV ScreamI’m not super into high-school set shows, but this one keeps you coming back. Not quite sure what it is, but even writing this makes me want to watch it again. Very compelling thriller inspired by the movie. MTV’s Scream doesn’t rely on the over-played tactics of horror movies these days, thankfully. It still manages keeps you on your toes, for sure. You think you may know the killer, but can you really be sure?
10. Girlfriend’s Guide to DivorceI can’t remember how I started watching this or what I was doing, but I’m so glad I did! Not-so-perfect mom Abby’s career shatters when America discovers the NYT Best-Seller’s life isn’t as perfect as she made it seem. She slowly tries to pick up the pieces, while keeping herself, kids, and friends sane. Super easy task, right?
The Mindy ProjectOhhhkay. Technically it isn’t on Netflix-it’s on Hulu. Who even goes to Hulu? But I just had to sign up for their subscription, purely so I could watch this. Hey-still cheaper than cable.
This show is sooooo my lady-jam. I don’t even know how to describe this flick about Mindy, a borderline crazy OB who somehow relatably still doesn’t have her life together in her 30s.
