The Best Netflix TV Shows List

Share this:

The Best Netflix TV Shows List - MommyBearMedia.com #netflixNetflix has a lot of programming but it can be frustrating to find something you like, let alone the best series on Netflix. Avoid spending all your free time looking for a great show and read our post of the best tv series on Netflix.

In my opinion, Netflix is weak on movies. There are a lot of “B” and “C” movies with a few “A” quality ones thrown in. But they have a lot more selection of TV Shows – especially for children. My children have been using Netflix for about 1 1/2 years now and they never run out of TV shows to watch. They may drive me crazy and I may not like all of them but there are lots to choose from. As for adults, it depends on your taste as to whether or not you will like their selection of TV Shows. Unfortunately, they don’t have any of my favorite TV Shows, like The Amazing Race, HGTV, Travel Channel or the Food Network, but there are a few good tv shows on Netflix. They do have a few TLC programs, like Say Yes to the Dress though. My husband’s favorite series are Merlin, Mythbusters, Star Trek and The X Files. My favorites are the older TV Shows, like Family Ties & Andy Griffith.

We will keep this post updated with the best Netflix TV Shows. We also have a separate post with the best Netflix movies and it includes a more in-depth review.

    why are the 4 people in the photo above(top) sitting sideways and looking over each others heads…with a giant screen, sitting too close…what a bunch of nuts.

  2. Joann Russ Alvarado says

    Thank you for compiling this list. I have many of theses titles in my cart already, but will add some of these from your list. I agree with what you said about Netflix's update. I hate it too. LOL I'll try the "netflix + movie search instead from now on.

  3. Tammy says

    Thank you the list of family friendly show. We were frustrated trying to think of shows to watch; your list made it easy to find show our whole family could enjoy together

  4. Carrie says

    I seriously question the “family friendliness” of this list…as someone who has seen shows like Buffy, Angel and Heroes, I would not allow any child less than 10 or 12 to watch them…

    • says

      This list was not made to be strictly followed. They are simply suggestions and for the parens to decide themselves what they consider appropriate for their children.
