Netflix has become that friend who just won’t stop proposing outlandish new ideas. You definitely love a thing or two they come up with, but at a certain point, it’s simply way too much to process.
The company is spending $6 billion on original content in 2017. So the over 100 million people across the world who subscribe to the service have an inevitable paralysis of choice ― and not every show is going to be a hit. Honestly, most are kind of mediocre. But the service has a record of putting out at least a few gems every year, all of which will hopefully end up in the ever-changing list below.
For the weekend of Aug. 25, Streamline is recommending “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later” in the top spot for Netflix. The show is a sequel to the original 2011 movie and subsequent mini series, but the charmingly ridiculous humor of the comedy needs little context. The newest series on the list are “Narcos” and “Marvel’s The Defenders.” Although the latter is apparently very popular on the service, it comes in a few spots down on the list due to overwhelmingly middling critical reviews.
Note: This list only includes shows that are in-season or aired their final episodes less than a year ago. Much like the main list, it prioritizes newness.
Season 2 Finale: Aug. 4, 2017
Season 3 Finale: Sept. 1, 2017
Season 1 Finale: July 21, 2017
Season 1 Finale: Aug. 18, 2017
Season 2 Finale: May 12, 2017
Season 1 Finale: April 28, 2017
Season 3 Finale: May 19, 2017
Season 1 Finale: June 23, 2017
And here are a dozen other recommended shows currently on the service:
“Arrested Development,” “Black Mirror,” “BoJack Horseman,” “Documentary Now!,” “Halt and Catch Fire,” “Lady Dynamite,” “Mad Men,” “Orange is the New Black,” “Parks and Recreation,” “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” “Stranger Things” and “Twin Peaks.”
