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 Oct. 21, Streamline recommends “American Vandal” in the top spot for the second week in a row. As mentioned before, this has become an unlikely critical darling, while simply being extremely funny.
“Mindhunter” joined the list for the first time. Much like the start of “House of Cards,” David Fincher directed the episodes that start this series. Time will tell if this new project becomes the smash hit “House of Cards” has become.
And this should be pointed out more ― “Mindhunter” is an insane name. A good mystery to investigate would be how someone pitched that name with a straight face.
This week is sort of a calm before the storm for Netflix as “Stranger Things” premieres next Friday. The service did release a high profile comedy special though with Patton Oswalt’s “Annihilation.”
Note: This list only includes shows that debuted their most recent episode less than a year ago. Much like the main list, it prioritizes newness.
