5 Netflix Original TV Hidden Gems
Netflix has pumped out a lot of hits over the years, but there are a lot of great shows that seem to have went under the radar for a lot of streamers. So, take a look at the following five shows and make sure these are in your list.
Slasher is an anthology horror series that Netflix picked up back in 2017. Two seasons in, with the third set to debut next month, Slasher provides a fun binge-watch that feels like a love letter to the genre.
This one was sadly cancelled after one season. If you liked shows like Freaks and Geeks and the Wonder Years, Everything Sucks! is certainly your cup of tea.
-F is for Family
The best adult animation comedy shows have a solid mix of vulgar humor and heart, and F is for Family provides both in heaps. I can't say this is the best of the genre that Netflix has to offer. That's an honor that easily goes to BoJack. I can say that it is very underrated and worth checking out at least once. The 4th season is set to debut next year.
-The Last Kingdom
Co-produced alongside BBC Two, with a 4th season coming soon, The Last Kingdom carries enough drama and action to get you hooked. While Game of Thrones might not be on Netflix, you'd be missing out if you didn't give this historic style epic a chance.
-Santa Clarita Diet
How the hell is it that no one seems to know about this one? Starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant, this dark comedy is a breathe of fresh air to the zombie genre, and has made me sincerely laugh more than just about anything else lately. This needs to be in your list NOW! UPDATE: It looks like, shortly after I posted this, the show was cancelled. I am admittedly very disappointed but still think you should check this one out.
