As Netflix’s library of original content continues to expand and expand, it’s worthwhile to take stock of all that the service currently offers.
While the second season of “Stranger Things” is the company’s most recent cultural phenomenon, Netflix has a slew of other great original shows — like the serial killer drama “Mindhunter” and the women’s wrestling comedy “Glow” — that might have flown under your radar.
Of course, the service has also had its share of flops, including the historical epic “Marco Polo,” and the Kathy Bates-led sitcom “Disjointed.”
To figure out which Netflix original series are worth your time, we turned to the reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes to rank the shows by their composite critical reception.
We excluded any show that did not have enough reviews to receive a designation of “Fresh” or “Rotten.” We also did not include children’s shows, talk shows, or series that were continued from other networks, and we used audience scores to break any ties.
Here are 54 of Netflix’s original shows, ranked from worst to best, according to critics:
