Top 10 Netflix Series
Netflix, the once-undisputed Goliath of television streaming, has had an eventful year.
Netflix’s premium television offering appeared to be shrinking as competitors such as HBO Max and Apple TV+ bolstered their lineups with fascinating originals and oldies alike.
That is until the platform dropped Squid Game and Maid in a one-two blow in the second half of the year.
It reclaimed its proper position as a top dog.
But don’t worry if those two programs aren’t your cup of tea.
There was more to come. Netflix has poured out something for everyone in the last twelve months, from the return of Moordale High’s adolescents to the launch of a new Chair in the English Department at Pembroke University.
We have no clue where the time has gone, but as we go into the new year, it’s time to rank Netflix’s top ten original television series from the year 2021.
Top 10 Netflix Series
Margaret Qualley stars in Netflix’s limited series based on Stephanie Land’s memoir, which is a heartbreaking trip.
It follows a young woman who flees an abusive relationship, seeks refuge in a shelter, and finds work cleaning houses to support her daughter.
Maid is without a doubt one of Netflix’s most moving shows of the year.
The sensation that is Squid Game is without a doubt one of the greatest originals on the platform this year.
It depicts a group of residents who are heavily in debt who play children’s games in the hopes of earning $38 million dollars, according to creator Hwang Dong-hyuk.
Losing, on the other hand, quickly becomes evident as a fate far more terrible than any playground pastime should encourage.
Yes, when Season 3 debuted earlier this autumn, we were adamant in our opposition to Otis. We’re aware.
That isn’t to say we aren’t great fans of Sex Education. The show about high school students is both heartfelt and entertaining.
Sandra Oh is the recently appointed head of the English department at a fake Ivy League in Netflix’s college campus drama The Chair.
Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim is dealing with her personal romantic and family troubles while trying to modernize the English department in the face of budget constraints and academic culture conflicts.
The Chair is a crisp, humorous portrayal of modern academia that is one of Netflix’s greatest dramas in years.
Tim Robinson returns for Season 2 of his instant classic sketch comedy series I Think You Should Leave after his hot dog skit-turned-meme went viral.
You’ll watch all six 15-minute episodes in one sitting because they’re hilarious and ridiculous. The hot dog, of course, is a recurring theme.
Lupin is a thriller that follows elegant gentleman thief Assane Diop (Omar Sy) as he strives to uncover the wrongdoing of a rich Parisian benefactor and clear his late father’s good name in the process.
The classic heist series is action-packed and exciting, but also intelligent and emotional.
You’ve done it again, Joe Goldberg, you scary monster.
Season 3 of You premiered in October to the pleasure and dread of fans everywhere, and Penn Badgley even gave us some insight into what it’s like to be that horrible.
Netflix’s four-part docuseries is some of the greatest culinary, nay, general television fare in years.
Stephen Satterfield, a food writer, and broadcaster, keeps the series moving along nicely as he recounts the history of American gastronomy from West Africa to the United States.
The most wonderful element is that he lets others who know more share their own stories, opening up an entire world of history via the lens of food.
The Serpent, a BBC/Netflix series about drugging, robbery, and gruesome murder, is not for the faint of heart.
It’s an eight-part theatrical recounting of Charles Sobhraj’s horrifying real-life atrocities in Asia during the 1970s, as well as the narrative of the Dutch ambassador who tried to bring him down.
What’s more disturbing is that Sobhraj is still alive today, serving a life sentence in Nepal for one of the killings shown in the series—but he’s never been apprehended or punished in Thailand, where he committed most of his atrocities.
With the help of famed writer and comic Fran Lebowitz, the spectator journeys and finds New York City in Pretend It’s A City.
The documentary serves as both a roast and a celebration of New York’s idiosyncrasies, nooks, and bad odors through a series of discussions with filmmaker Martin Scorsese.
