When Danny DeVito joins the cast as the hilarious Frank Reynolds, the show really kicks into high gear. Popular, beloved, and source of many memes, this show is a must for those who like a bit wacky yet an unconventional type of humor.
#5 Breaking Bad
This show really doesn’t need a special introduction. Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston) is a chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Since he can’t pay the medical bills, he decides to “break bad” and cook crystal meth along with a young hustler Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). This show is defined by its phenomenal plot, great acting, and regular twist and turns. Regarded as one of the best TV shows ever, Breaking Bad is a must for those who truly love cinematography.
#6 Stranger Things
he Duffer brothers’ Stranger Things didn’t need much time to become one of the greatest hits ever made by Netflix. Set in the 80s, Stranger Things revolves around a group of four kids in Hawkins, Indiana that befriends a girl will telekinetic powers. Soon, many unreal events start to take place in Hawkins, and the five little heroes try to save their community (and their friends) from peril. Exciting, tense, and fun, this show features many nail-biting scenes, humorous acts, and heartwarming dialogues.
Few people could predict that the classic Coen brothers film would succeed in a TV show, yet Fargo did just that. It is based on the “true” story of crime in Minnesota. Its leading stars are Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton. Set in March of 1979, this story is actually a prequel to the first series. It follows the complex story of the investigation of three murders. A moody and intelligent drama, this show is definitely something worth watching.
When Fox announced they were going to cancel the show, the fans launched an online campaign that took the hashtag #SaveLucifer to the world. Netflix seized the opportunity and brought the show back to life by streaming it on their platform. Based on the character created by Neil Gaiman, Lucifer is the lord of hell and a fallen angel who has decided to make Los Angeles his home. Tom Ellis did a great job of portraying a devil, and it is mostly because of him that the show still “goes on.”
#9 Rick And Morty
Described as the “nihilistic animated comedy.” Rick and Morty is the show that follows the adventures of drunken and not completely sane scientist Rick Sanchez and his unstable grandson Morty Smith. The show follows their misadventures as they travel through different realms, doing strange things, and meeting bizarre creatures. Although sometimes complex to understand, the show is very well-written, it features great voice acting and lots of ridiculous (although a bit weird) scenes.
#10 Doctor Who
