Rotten Tomatoes: 95%
If you have not heard about this show then where have you been?! This has been taking the world by storm and is one of the best Netflix-original tv shows i have seen. It is an easy show to get into, as there is currently only one season with 8 episodes. The show is about a young boy from a small town who goes missing, and his mother and his friends go on a thrilling journey to find him. In their quest to find him, they discover some scary things and people…and that is all that I will say. Set during the 80s with an amazing soundtrack too, if you have not watched this yet then you must!
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Rotten Tomatoes: 97%
This show, partly written by Tina Fey, is a masterpiece that everyone must watch. It is about a young woman called Kimmy who after 15 years in a cult gets rescued and moves to New York. You follow her journey on adjusting to normal life including having to get a job and making new friends. You fall in love with Kimmy and all the other characters as they are just pure comedy gold. My words do not do this show justice so please just watch it!

This is Netflix’ take on the life of Pablo Escobar and the infamous Medellín Cartel in Colombia. It is set from the 1970’s and shows the quest of the American and Colombian government’s attempts to bring Pablo and the Cartel down. The show is mainly in Spanish, but has subtitles. Featuring a lot of violence, illegal activities and tragedy, every episode will keep you on edge.

This is an older show on Netflix but it is such an easy one to get into. It’s about the lives of a bunch of adults who have created a study group whilst attending community college. Through this, they get up to many adventures including paintball fights, building pillow forts and creating the perfect Breakfast Club homage. Watching this show will make you wish that you were in a community college or that university life was this good!

This is a show about a group of detectives working in the 99th precinct and how they adjust to having a new boss. Jake Peralta, one of the main detectives, and Captain Holt, the new boss, clash a lot causing very funny circumstances. Again, this is an easy show to get into…and Terry Crews is one of the main characters so you should definitely check it out!
