The holidays are approaching, and we’re going to have a bit more free time on our hands, so what better way to spend our time than to watch some really cool Netflix originals?
We couldn’t decide if we wanted to binge on some shows or maybe just go for movies, so we thought we’d look into both the best Netflix movies and series.
Since we didn’t want to be completely subjective and slam our favorite shows at the top of the list, we went to several famous platforms and put together their scores – IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, and Metacritic. We took into consideration all scores, both from critics and regular viewers alike, and averaged them out. This is as objective as we could go, so let’s go dive into things and see how well they all fare.
Best Netflix Original Shows
1. Lenox Hill – 9.44
Premiered earlier this year, in June, Lenox Hill is actually a documentary TV series that follows the lives of four medical professionals in several fields – neurosurgery, emergency medicine, and obstetrics and gynecology at the Lenox Hill Hospital, one of the best research and academic medical centers in Manhattan, New York City. The show features nine episodes directed by Adi Barash and Ruthie Shatz, and they all portray the medical professionals well, exploring both their highs and lows. Not only do we get to take a look at how things really go for these doctors, but we also get a more realistic understanding of what goes into their jobs than we get from, let’s say, Grey’s Anatomy.
2. Peaky Blinders – 9.07
When it comes to Peaky Blinders, things are a bit more complicated as this is a British show from the BBC. However, since Netflix acquired the show’s rights, it is considered to be a “Netflix Original.” With that out of the way, we can honestly say this is easily one of the best shows around. With 5 seasons already out, starting with 2013, and a couple of more planned out, Peaky Blinders features Cillian Murphy as Thomas Shelby, Helen McCrory, Tom Hardy, and plenty more. The show follows the Shelbys, a gangster family of Irish and Roma origin and their life in Birmingham, their feuds with rival gangs, their encounters with law enforcement, and Thomas’ path into politics after the first World War. It is a riveting story that will have you rooting for the bad guys.
3. Middleditch and Schwartz – 9.06
Earlier this year, as we all started feeling cabin fever due to the COVID-19 restrictions, Netflix thought it best to have us laughing a bit with Middleditch and Schwartz. This is an improv comedy TV series featuring Thomas Middleditch and Ben Schwartz. The series has three hour-long episodes, with each episode based on a random audience suggestion and improvised by the two comedians. The critics believe this is a brilliant series and a masterclass in improv comedy, and viewers agree.
4. The Queen’s Gambit – 9.02
With The Queen’s Gambit, Netflix has really hit the jackpot, as this show is absolutely amazing. This period drama is based on the same-named novel of Walter Tevis. The story starts in the 1950s and proceeds throughout the decades, following the life of an orphaned chess prodigy on her rise to become the best chess player in the world. She may have a problem with alcohol and sometimes drug consumption, but she manages to build an impressive name for herself, defeating grandmaster after grandmaster. The show features Anya Taylor-Joy, Harry Melling, Thomas Sangster, and more.
5. BoJack Horsemen – 8.96
Although this show is animated, it really isn’t meant for kids. This sitcom features voices from Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Aaron Paul, Alison Brie, Paul Tompkins, and plenty more. The show follows an anthropomorphic horse named BoJack Horseman, a former star of a 1990s sitcom who keeps trying to return to the limelight. The story takes on depression, addiction, racism, sexism, the human condition, and more, all in a realistic way. The best thing about BoJack is that the final season, the sixth one, has already been released at the beginning of 2020, so you can binge on it fully, enjoying the full story.
6. Dirty Money – 8.92
Coming from Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney, Dirty Money is an impressive TV series that tells stories of corruption within corporations, securities fraud, and companies taking creative freedoms to fix the accounting to suit their needs.

You can learn more about Wells Fargo, HSBC, and even Jared Kushner and Donald Trump.

With two seasons out already, the first one in 2017 and the second in 2019, Mindhunter tells a thrilling story of two FBI agents who operate the very first Behavioral Science Unit. They interview serial killers to try to understand what makes them tick while also solving some gory cases. For now, the show is on hold due to the pandemic, but we’re all hoping for at least a third season.
8. Master on None – 8.9
Aziz Asari is certainly one of the funniest actors and comedians nowadays. Master of None is a creation of his, alongside Alan Yang. Ansari himself stars in the lead role of a young actor, exposing his professional and personal experience while also diving into the romantic side of his life. There are two seasons of this show, one released in 2015 and another in 2017, so you can definitely enjoy it all in just a few hours. Besides Ansari, you get to watch Noël Wells, Eric Wareheim, Kelvin Yu, and others. Furthermore, the show has a ton of guest appearances by the likes of Claire Danes, John Legend, and Angela Bassett.
9. When They See Us – 8.86
Shows that take inspiration from real life have a high impact on the viewers, that much is clear, and that’s exactly what happens with When They See Us. This 2019 crime drama miniseries follows the events of 1989 when a jogger was sexually assaulted in Central Park. This lead to five juvenile black males to be wrongly accused and convicted to prison. After spending a good chunk of their lives in prison and getting released, it came to light that they were innocent, and their charges were vacated. Later on, they received millions of dollars in settlements. The problematics of the case and how the young men were wrongfully accused due to police bias are perfectly exposed in this series.
10. Five Came Back – 8.8
Based on the same-named book by Mark Harris, Five Came Back is a great Netflix documentary released in 2017.

Narrated by Meryl Streep, the documentary makes use of footage from the vast collection of these directors, as they discuss their experience with fellow directors Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Guillermo del Toro, Paul Greengrass, and Lawrence Kasdan.
11. Dark – 8.78
Up next, we have a show that’s in German, so you’re going to have to watch with subtitles. But, trust us, it’s going to be worth it! The show ran for three seasons, between 2017 and 2020, and it follows characters from a fictional town in Germany as they try to find out the truth. They follow the connections between four families as they discover a strange time travel conspiracy spanning multiple generations. It is twisted, strange, and you cannot stop watching. Mind you; you’ll need to pay very close attention to the show if you want to understand any of it.
12. Making a Murderer – 8.78
Another cool show on Netflix is Making a Murderer, which is actually a true-crime documentary. It tells the story of Steven Avery, a man who served 18 years in prison for sexual assault and attempted murder, but he did his time as an innocent man. However, after his release, he was charged and convicted of murder. It also follows the story of Brendan Dassey, Avery’s nephew, accused and convicted as an accessory in the murder. The two seasons follow their entire story, including the aftermath of their convictions, trying to figure out whether Avery was framed or not. The first season was released in 2015, and it was filmed over ten years, while the second one was released in 2018.
13. Unbelievable – 8.76
Unbelievable is another miniseries that stars Toni Collete, Merritt Wever, and Kaitlyn Dever. This one also handles a sensitive topic – a series of rapes in Washington State and Colorado. The story follows Marie, a teenager who was charged with lying about her rape, as well as two detectives who actually unveiled the truth, exonerating Marie. The show puts the spotlight on the frustration that comes with victims not being believed by the police, and even worse, charged with lying. Nonetheless, it’s a story that needs telling, and Netflix is doing just that in 8 episodes.
14. Feel Good – 8.76
Similar to Peaky Blinders, Feel Good is a British show, this time from Channel 4, but Netflix got the rights for international distribution.

Released in 2017, the documentary features 7 episodes.
16. Narcos – 8.74
Narcos is easily one of the best shows Netflix has ever made.

Featuring Claire Foy and Olivia Colman, Matt Smith and Tobias Menzies, Vanessa Kirby and Helena Bonham Carter, John Lithgow, Emma Corrin, Emerald Fennell, Josh O’Connor, Gillian Anderson, and many others.
