- Stranger Things
You already know this show earned a spot on the list thanks to its incredibly 80’s vibe and sci-fi genre. If you’ve watched E.T and truly enjoy watching fictional content, you’re going to love Stranger Things. This show is packed with all the right elements: a perfect storyline, an incredible cast, and a lot of sci-fi action.

- BoJack Horseman
Who doesn’t love watching cartoons as an adult? Netflix’s BoJack Horseman is an underrated production. This series is based in a world where humans and animals live together side-by-side and BoJack is an alcoholic horse who was the star of the 90’s sitcom called Horsin’ Around. After experiencing the peak of his star-studded career 10 years ago, BoJack wishes to put himself out there again.
His girlfriend and agent are a cat, his enemy is golden Labrador, his roommate is a lazy potato couch, and the love of his life is a human ghostwriter. The way this show exposes celebrity culture and survival in Hollywood is satirically brilliant. The best part of the show is how relatable the main character, BoJack is. He’s the perfect depiction of depression on the show. It’s a show that’s surely going to keep you hooked.
- Peaky Blinders
If you’re a fan of history, melodrama, and romance, Peaky Blinders is the perfect fit for your taste. This show seamlessly fuses all 3 genres timelessly, making it a modern marvel. Cillian Murphy, in his intense form, leads a gang called Peaky Blinders. From gambling and bootlegging to romance and affairs, it has everything.
It’s violent yet addictive. With an 8.8/10 on IMDb, you must give this a go. While the roughly accented script might take a bit to get used to but we promise you will not be disappointed.
- The Crown
Do we have any British history enthusiasts here? The Crown is a series dedicated to depicting the life of Queen Elizabeth II and the early years of her reign. It highlights all the important events that wrote the history of the British parliament in the most captivating and dramatic manner.
With Peter Morgan telling the story, there’s no doubt about the conviction this show has. It gives us the perfect insight into a world we barely understand as normal citizens. From Churchill’s downfall to the queen’s relationship with her husband, Prince Phillip, the show beautifully dramatizes the story and facts.
- The Witcher
If you’ve watched Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel and prayed for him to be in a show, well your wish just came true! The Witcher hasn’t been on Netflix too long but already has a loyal fan following. The Witcher is based on the best-selling epic fantasy series, followed by a video game franchise! The show has already landed an 8.5/10 on IMDb, proving it successfully reached up to everyone’s expectations.
Henry’s role in the show is to play a hunter called Geralt. But instead of animals, he hunts for mutated monsters. If you’re a fan of the Lord of the Rings and truly enjoy the dark, and epic fantasy genre, The Witcher is a must-watch!
- Orange Is The New Black
Drama plus comedy plus powerful diverse women give you Orange is the new black. The show starts with Piper Chapman who ends up in prison for transporting a hefty amount of drug money 10 years ago. Behind bars, Piper has to navigate through prison life without being stalked, starved, or targeted and also maintain a long-distance relationship with Larry, her fiancé.
The series not only breaks stereotypes but also highlights the stories of those who are silenced in our society for being ‘different’: queer and trans women, Latino women, rape survivors, mentally ill, and drug addicts. The stories are so well-scripted and executed, making the viewers laugh one minute, and cry the next.
If you’re looking to binge-watch a show on the weekend that offers a good storyline, brilliant writing, and flawless acting, then Orange is the new black is the perfect pick for you!

It surely deserves more attention than it gets. With a good playlist, incredible life lessons, hilarious storytelling, and a great cast, Big Mouth definitively deserves a spot on your weekend binge-watch list!
