Of course, what is considered to be the best films and TV shows on Netflix is a matter of personal choice, but there are some that have proved to be so popular, they have to be counted as the favorites of many. Here are just a few of them.
The Twilight Zone
There is no other show to compare to the Twilight Zone in terms of entertainment value and uniqueness. Every episode was special and with no overhype of the baddies, it was fund to watch as well as a bit scary at times. It remains as one of the best TV series ever made.
This is the story of six friends who live in New York. For ten years everyone knew who Joey and the rest of the characters were. It was a show full of nostalgia, fun, and laughter, and even today, the comedy in it has not dated at all. It is worth binge-watching from the very first episode for all 10 series, and at the end of it, you will feel like that characters are your friends too.
American Horror Story
With a title like this, you would expect it to be available as part of the US Netflix library, but it isn’t. This is a show where the same actors play different roles in each new series, and it becomes very addictive viewing. You could be watching Netflix with a VPN though so that it thinks you are in Australia, which is just one of the places this show is available.
Over the years there has been a large number of films and TV series made about Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick, Dr. Watson. None of them is as good as the series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. The tales are all as gripping as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle intended, and these two actors play the roles to perfection.
There are not many Netflix account holders that will have missed this. It is full of complicated stories, appalling violence, and some great acting that make it compelling viewing. It tells the tale of a chemistry teacher and his wife as they get involved in the world of drugs, and is without a doubt one of the best Netflix shows to watch.
Freaks And Geeks
Only one series of 18 episodes were ever made of this show, which is a shame because it was warm, honest and very funny. Many viewers watch it more than once as there are often things you do not spot first time around, and it seems that they find it just as funny even after watching it 3 or 4 times.
This is a British production based on what the problems could be if technology went wrong. Everything about the show was well executed, and it will be a long time before it appears dated. It is likely to stay the best show in its class unless someone else comes up with a similar theory now that technology has moved on so much since it was first aired in 2011.
