Maybe you’re going back to University, College, Work or maybe for some reason you’re cough-bound throughout the 2022, well luckily, the saviour Netflix is here! Netflix TV Shows have been growing in quality and popularity since its birth and the service now hosts hundreds of different shows for everyone’s interests. Therefore, we’ve decided to create a list of the best Netflix TV Shows for you to watch in 2022 to get you in the mood.
Mad Men is an absolute classic is this modern day and age. Set in the 1965’s, Mad men follows one of the cities best ad agencies on Madison Avenue. The agency tries to survive in a time when everything is going through a radical change. With some great scandals, great acting and fun characters, this is a great choice for 2022.
House of Cards
If you’ve not heard of House of Cards then you’ve likely been living under a rock for the past couple of years. House of Cards is a series starring Kevin Spacey who finds himself robbed of the job he so sorely desired. Therefore, him and his wife plan a way to ensure that he still manages to get that job, in whatever way he can!
Breaking Bad is a name that really needn’t be on this list of finding new tv shows to watch. Breaking Bad is one of the highest rated and critically acclaimed series in the existence of TV. With incredible storylines every episode, two brilliant protagonists and some horrible antagonists, we see a man’s journey from average family man to evil drug lord.
Based on the original film, Psycho about the man who owns the hotel, Norman Bates. This series shows the rise from his boyhood, why he has such an obsession with his mother and why he ‘s so mentally disturbed to go ahead and kill all those people in the films.
Heroes is another one of those series that most people will have heard of. Based around a group of people who start realising they’ve got special abilities that allow them to do things other can’t, the government and others begin to fear them and dislike them. Watch as these people go from scared average people to masters of their power.
Archer isn’t your average animated series. It’s sort of a cross- between Arrested Development and then every spy flick ever. Archer is the main cocky, arrogant protagonist and his mother and ex-girlfriend own the I.S.I.S company he works for. That just spells disaster!
Parks and Recreation
Parks and Recreation is a show based on the idea of what would happen if one woman was very passionate about ensuring parks were placed around the city of New York. It feels a lot like a spoof of the sort of jobs that require important political changes to cities and as a result, plays on that. Plus, this is the series that introduced the world to Chris Pratt!
Orange is the New Black
If you’ve not heard of this Netflix original you must be undr the same rock as the House of Cards people. Orange Is The New Black has taken Netflix by storm and created a huge gathering. It’s critically acclaimed for approaching topics such as minorities, sexism and more with an intelligent nature, introducing many people to characters they may not have interacted with in real life.
The Inbetweeners is surely one of the funniest and best comedies to come out of the UK? The original Inbetweeners series’ were sought after so much by audiences and always truly delivered. With Simon, Neil, Jay and Will getting into all sorts of funny situations, you can’t help but love them all!
The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead is a critically acclaimed series about surviving a zombie apocalypse. It’s a series that sounds like it’s been done many times before however this show manages to capture the feelings and stories of the characters better than any others. It is always one of the worst series for killing off your favourite characters.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Marvel have slowly been taking over the big screen and have made huge dents on the small screen too with the likes of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It’s a series that focuses more on the lives of the smaller agents who work Marvel. The series concentrates on capturing different people with different abilities. It’s a fairly simple formula but the storylines evolve and character relationships build.
With each episode telling a different story, this isn’t a series about following character progression. However, that doesn’t stop there from being a world to build and an overwhelming story to tell. Often compared to The Twilight Zone in it’s nature, this is certainly a series that will leave your jaw dropped.
When you’ve got such minds as J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman working on a Sci-Fi show, you know it’s going to be quite something. Fringe is a paranormal, science fiction thriller similar to X-Files. It ran for over 100 episodes and consistently managed to push the boundaries for shocking storylines, alternate dimensions and eerie mysteries.
Sherlock is one of those shows you can’t help but love. Benedict Cumberbatch is simply perfect as the arrogant, sociopathic Sherlock Holmes. This Sherlock Holmes is undeniably intelligent and it’s so incredibly fun to watch him work out all the mysteries around him. With one of the best twists in television history happening as well, this is definitely a series for really anybody.
Daredevil was a risk for Marvel and for Netflix. It’s the first Netflix-exclusive foray into the market for Marvel and it seems to be a payoff. The first season came across with mostly positive reviews as it showed a far grittier side to Marvel than any of their previous work has ever shown. If you’re into superheroes or even action in general, we’d definitely recommend Daredevil. Oh and did we mention it has one of the best Marvel villains ever in it?
Luther is one of those cop shows where everything isn’t quite as normal as it should be. The overall idea of the show is that of the average ‘the cops find a murder has happened and solve it’. However, when you add in a personal backline and Luther’s past mental problems it really makes you fall in love with his character and fear anyone who comes in his path.
Lost was a show that started off with great potential and began asking a lot of questions really early on. Some would argue that a lot of those questions were never fully answered or the writer didn’t really know where he was going with them. But for TV Shows that engage you and keep you wanting to watch another episode, there are few better on the planet than Lost.
Dexter is a really odd show that has you falling in love with a serial killer… who actually works for the police at the same time. Dexter wants to rid the world of horrible people and does so by killing them and very particularly ridding of their bodies. It’s a show that shows off a man who can’t love but a man who you desperately want to find happiness.
