Netflix offers us so much new content that we can’t keep up. The streaming service has brought us some amazing series, with Stranger Things and You (just to name a couple) hitting millions of views just in the first week alone. With so much time on our hands, many of us have been looking to start a new series. Rotten Tomatoes had made a list of the best series to watch on the platform…

Number one on the list is surprisingly not a well known, popular series. Master of None has been named the best series to binge-watch while in lockdown, and while we think its brilliant, we are shocked to see some of our favorites not even make the top 10! Master of None follows New Yorker Dev struggling to make day to day decisions such as where he wants to eat. If he can’t make a simple choice, you can only imagine how difficult it is to make a decision regarding his future. Aziz Ansari plays Dev, receiving two Emmy’s at the Golden Globes for the adventure/comedy. If you loved Ansari in Parks and Recreation, then this one is for you.

The Witcher is at number what on the list?!

Number two on the list is Big Mouth, an animated sitcom created by Nick Kroll. Rotten Tomatoes’ list of the best Netflix original series includes hidden treasures on the streaming service. For example, relatively new docuseries The Confession Killer made number 9 on the list, as it explores one of the most prolific serial killers in America. But the fantasy drama that has had everyone talking, The Witcher, has hit 142 on the list!

We can’t say we fully agree with Rotten Tomatoes guide to the best Netflix series, but we do appreciate their attempts to vary the list, in comparison to the same old originals we see on most lists. We just wish some of our personal favorites had done better. British drama The Stranger at number 103 on the list – this must be a mistake!

Head over to Rotten Tomatoes list to see if you agree with their recommendations. You never know, you might find a new show to get you through lockdown. There are also a few movies for those who don’t love the dedication of loads of episodes. But what else is there to do!
