Netflix has been busy creating and releasing best TV shows via Netflix Originals. We’re going to go through a few of them and talk about ones that you don’t want to miss!
The top of the best Netflix Originals (in my opinion) starts with Altered Carbon. The science fiction show takes place 350 years from now in the year 2384. The idea implies storing memory in particular devices called “slacks”. Transferring the device into different bodies which are called “sleeves” makes it possible to give an infinite life. The main character is a political operative who wakes up in a new sleeve after 250 years and is tasked with finding the murderer of an incredibly important person. The first few series are a bit painful to watch as it throws a ton of information at you, but all ten episodes leave viewers feeling fulfilled.
Black Mirror is one of the most honest, violent, brave, and stunning TV shows. Each episode tells a separate story with new characters. It’s a commentary on human dependence and modern technology. At first sight, there is nothing in common between each story, but when watching it for the second or the third time, you start to notice elements which have been used in other episodes like music, newspaper titles, and other hardly elements that would go unnoticed otherwise. If you haven’t seen the show yet, do it now.
Money Heist (or La Casa de Papel)
Money, fights, action, risk; all these words characterize La Casa de Papel which literally translates to The Paper House. It is originally released in Spanish. It is the story about people who have nothing to lose. The group is going to bring to life an ambitious plan of heisting €2, 4 billion under control and leading by El Profesor. There is a lot of action, plans, strategic thinking and other exciting elements which are incredibly enjoyable.
13 Reasons Why
This series is for those who prefer drama at the high school level. It is based on a bestseller novel by Jay Asher. Brian Yorkey has adopted it to a Netflix show which has two seasons at the moment. Like any other teen drama, it touches social issues and is highly emotional and atmospheric.
It is a biographical crime drama of the life of Pablo Escobar. It has been set and filmed in Colombia. It tells the story of the drug lord’s interruption with other drug dealers, the Drug Enforcement Agency and other governmental representatives of Colombia. The show has three seasons so far with the fourth to be released later this year.
Another biographical story but this one is about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. The story starts in 1947. The series feature high quality writing, acting, and his production values. In fact, the production cost of the first season was reported $130 million which makes The Crown the most expensive and one of the best shows that Netflix has ever created. As of right now, it has two seasons, but it will be renewed with another two seasons.
Master of None
If you are looking for something funny, positive and romantic, then you should definitely check out Master of None. It is a positive and light story about a 30-something Indian man living New York and trying to find work as an actor. The story revolves around his dating life, and him trying to enjoy life as much as possible. The TV-series has won three Emmy Awards and one Golden Globe. With all the positive sides it has, the show still has elements of drama.
Another good Netflix show tells the story of a dystopian future world where people are promised a better life, but only 3% will actually succeed. Like any other show, it is highly emotional with thriller elements thrown in. It is originally filmed in Portuguese which makes it the second biggest non-English production on Netflix. The second season just became available at the end of April.
Orange is the New Black
Many people call Orange is the New Black one of the best Netflix series to date. It has drama, comedy, violence, and psychological puzzles. The action takes place in a women prison and depicts their day to day lives, and chronicles their behavior and relationships. It is sometimes hard to watch, but it’s full of social commentary and is definitely worth watching.
Alexa & Katie
Most Netflix that we’ve discussed have elements of high tech, sci-fi, drama, thrillers, and other psychological stuff. But Alexa & Katie is an original sitcom which involves two best friends who are about to start their high school adventure. It is brand new series that was first released on March 23, 2018. It is full of funny situations, friendship, love, support, and all the two best friends can only imagine.
