CNET Top 5
The top 5 most binge-worthy shows on Netflix (as selected by you)These are the shows that magically glue you to your couch.
[MUSIC] I asked you what are the most bingeable shows on Netflix. The only problem was I didn't define bingeable for this top five. So let's define it as the shows you suggested with the highest Metacritic scores okay? If you didn't suggest it, it's not on this list. Let's do this, at number five is Stranger Things, it's one of Netflix's newest shows. And it has a [UNKNOWN] critic score of 75, this show was clearly influenced by the works of Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter, and Stephen King. It's centered around a bunch of kids searching for their friend, they're only eight episodes, so you can probably watch them all in one day. The fourth most bingeable show on Netflix is House of Cards with an average Metacritic score of 77 in it's four seasons. The show is stacked with stars like Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. If you're into politics and under Handed dealings you'll probably love House of Cars. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt average Metacritic score is 80 with the first season rated at 78. The second at 82. Compared to Stranger Things and House of Cards Kimmy Schmidt is a lot more light hearted. That makes sense since it's from 30 Rock's Tina Fey and Robert Carlach. Plus, the episodes are in the 30 minute range, so running through all of them shouldn't take too long. With a [UNKNOWN] score of 81 is Marvel's Jessica Jones. This show accomplishes a lot. It's dark, it's funny, it has strong characters and a pretty good plot. Kristin Ritter and David Tennant are excellent as adversaries. And if you're thinking this show's for kids because it's based on a comic book, it's not. It really is not. Binge this show without the kids. And the number one most bingeable show on Netflix is Hemlock Grove. Nah, that show is awful. It has a Metacritic score of 45. Number 1 is Master of None with a score of 91, that's more than double that of Hemlock Grove. Master of None is a great take on being a first generation Generation American. It's a fun look at show business and it has some drama that seems completely natural to the show. Go watch it. I personally don't agree with the rankings. I'd put Stranger Things at number one but I don't control MetaCritic, yet. For more top five check out top5.cnet.com. I'm Iyaz Akhtar and I'll see you online.
