  1. The Get Down

It shows black and brown people that have dreams and aspirations and intelligence. The soundtrack is amazing, the production is amazing. (via Buzzfeed)

  1. Grace and Frankie

Starring legends Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, Grace and Frankie tells the story of two women whose husbands (Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) recently came out of the closet together, leaving their ex-wives single and alone for the first time in decades. The series is buoyed by strong performances from its incredible cast, balancing a sharp sense of humor with a decidedly profound commentary on aging. (via Cheatsheet)

  1. Samurai Gourmet

This is a fantastic original adaptation of a Japanese manga. The story follows Takeshi Kasumi, a retired businessman who is going through a sort-of second teenage crisis worrying about what he is going to do with his life. In truly anime-style, he stumbles upon a bunch of restaurants. Thus begins his life as a “wandering samurai” whose purpose in life is to explore Japanese food. It’s a must-watch show for food lovers, anime fans, and Japanophiles alike. This “Rurouni Kenshin” but with food instead of swordfights. (via Smartdnsproxy)

  1. The Good Place

Eleanor (Kristen Bell) finds herself in the “Good Place” (read: Heaven) after an accident ends her life, but the problem is she’s a terrible person and doesn’t belong there. She enlists the help of her mistakenly assigned soulmate Chidi (William Jackson Harper) to teach her how to be a better person and — hopefully — keep her secret safe. (via Buzzfeed)

  1. Easy

While Master of None is largely viewed as the quintessential representation of modern relationships, we’d be remiss if we didn’t include Easy in the same tier. Joe Swanberg’s (Drinking Buddies) insightful commentary on romance in the age of technology is as apt as it is honest, playing to the strengths of Easy‘s talented cast. Rotten Tomatoes’ own critical consensus points toward a slew of “moments that feel raw, intimate and un-meditated,” alongside a strong 94% positive rating to boot. (via Cheatsheet)

  1. Ozark

A financial adviser goes into hiding in the Ozarks with his family as he takes on the task of laundering hundreds of millions of dollars for a crime boss. Why you should just give up and watch it: First off, yes, that is Jason Bateman and Laura Linney in a show together. If that’s not enough to get you to watch, then consider the fact that it’s being compared to Breaking Bad by pretty much everyone who watches it. (via Buzzfeed)

  1. Last Chance U

This is the documentary version of “Friday Night Lights.” It follows the lives of high schoolers with lofty NBA ambitions. The show’s got everything sports fans love. If you thought fictional shows about competitive sports were intense, wait till you see the real thing. (via Smartdnsproxy)

Have any of these Netflix shows been on your radar, but you just haven’t been ready to give them a try?
