There are so many TV shows on Netflix to choose from, and it can be hard to know which ones you should watch. Here we break down the top eight TV shows you need to binge-watch on Netflix right now.
1. When They See Us
When They See Us details the harrowing real-life story of the Central Park Five. This limited series is only four parts but tells an incredibly important story. The Central Park Five were wrongfully accused and prosecuted for the rape and attack of a woman, largely due to their race and coercion that the police officers used just so they could close the case. This poignant series is definitely a must-watch.
2. Stranger Things
If you haven’t watched Stranger Things before, now is the perfect time to start. The third season has just come out, so this sci-fi series is an exciting watch and ideal for anyone who loves a show with many twists and turns. The series follows a group of kids who investigate strange things happening in their city, and it’s easy to lose hours watching this intriguing show.
3. Tales Of The City
Tales Of The City is a kind of continuation of the original series, based on the book series by Armistead Maupin. The premise is about a group of people navigating their relationships, both romantic, familial and friend in their lives. This comforting show has a whole range of diversity within the relationships it presents, which is a refreshing change from the lack of diversity some other Netflix shows have. This is a wonderful show which keeps you wanting more.
4. The Good Place
The Good Place is a comedic series based mainly on Eleanor Shellstrop, a woman who accidentally gets put into ‘The Good Place’ when she dies, despite the fact she’s not supposed to be there. This series is funny, but it isn’t without its serious undertones. This is a great show to binge-watch and the characters become more loveable the more you watch it.
Trinkets is a heart-warming show, revolving around three girls as they deal with their stealing problems, amongst their personal lives. It’s good to see a show which premise is based on female friendship, and the characters themselves are multifaceted, making them even more loveable. With only 10 episodes, this Netflix series is perfect to binge-watch.
6. Our Planet
Our Planet is a stunning show highlighting the different eco-systems in our world, and how different animals rely on them.

Queer Eye is definitely the most fun and loveable show there is right now. The show follows the five experts, Tan, Antoni, Jonathan, Bobby, and Karamo while they makeover people who need their help. This TV show is different from all other help shows, as they never try to fundamentally change the people they’re making over. This is a feel-good show which you have to binge-watch.
8. Black Mirror
Black Mirror is a thoughtful show exploring technological situations in the near future. The fourth season has just come out on Netflix, so it’s the perfect time to catch up on this ground-breaking TV show.
