Top 5 Shows To Watch On Netflix

For those who are not constantly watching Netflix (like me), it can be a little difficult to keep up with the best shows. Whether you’re into comedies, action, or dramas, new shows are being added every few days. There are tons of people wondering what shows they should be watching, and which ones they should avoid. If you’re one of these people, then you’ve come to the right place.

The great part about having a Netflix account is that there is a constant rotation of shows and movies. That way, Netflix users never get bored.  All you need to do is do a little research and you’ll easily figure out which ones are worth your time.  But if you don’t have the time to do that, here’s a list of my five favorite Netflix shows.

The Office

For people that are fans of dry, English humor, The Office will always be one of the best shows on Netflix. Those that are wondering if there are any good comedy shows on Netflix would do themselves a favor to turn on The Office. It stars Steve Carrell and John Krasinski, among others, and after 9 seasons it is still one of the most successful comedy shows.  All 9 seasons of The Office are on Netflix, for those that want to see the show, whether for the first or the 50th time.

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead definitely isn’t a comedy. But it’s still one of the best shows on Netflix. The Walking Dead is a zombie post-apocalyptic thriller/action genre show that’s based on an amazing comic book series.  One good thing about The Walking Dead (aside from how great it is) is that it’s still coming out with new seasons. So once you catch up you can always start watching the new episodes on AMC.

Orange is the New Black

This is a show about what it’s like for women in prison. The show has received remarkably positive reviews from critics, and has won multiple awards. For those that are looking for something a little different, Orange is the New Black is a great place to start.


Those that are fans of outdoor-type shows or movies like The Revenant will enjoy Frontier. It stars Jason Mamoa, who came to stardom for playing Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones.  He’s also signed on to play Aquaman in the upcoming Justice League movies. Unfortunately, the first season of the show has only received a 38% rating from Rotten Tomatoes, which tends to be pretty accurate when it comes to grading shows and movies.  Despite it’s low rating, this show is still worth a try.  

Black Mirror

What makes Black Mirror unique is that there isn’t a particular plot that the show follows.  Every episode is different from the rest, the only link between episodes is the universe in which they take place.  The show has won multiple awards, and is reminiscent of the original Twilight Zone series. This show also offers an interesting social commentary on many of the problems of today’s world.  

No matter what type of show someone prefers to watch, they’re sure to find something they like on Netflix.  If you are on Netflix and looking for a new show to watch, go ahead and give any of these a try. You might find that your new favorite show is right here on this list!  If you’d like to check out some more reviews, head on over to the top 5 power guide.
