Netflix Content -- What are Your "Must See" Recommendations?

I'm a brand new Netflix subscriber. I saw the info on the 'net about the abiliity to get Netflix for a year at a cost of just $25 through Verizon (noticed it later posted in the Netflix News/Discussion), so I decided it was time to take the plunge. I've been going through saving random series/films which seem interesting. I've already watched two episodes of The Movies That Made Us which has been fantastic.

I thought I'd check with folks here for recommendations on what shows or films should be at the top of my list to check out. If a thread specifically like this already exists, please accept my apology and point me to it. I didn't see anything going back in this forum and a search wiith Netflix in the title leads to lots of individual threads for a myriad of shows and films.

Please help a guy out--whether sharing stuff that has universal appeal or hidden gems you've discovered. I'm likely referring to things which are found exclusively on Netflix, but I'm open to any suggestions. Maybe it's a sign of getting older, but many documentaries seemed appealing as I've been searching, so I'm not limiting my options to just series and films either.

And while I've heard good things about a few shows, I believe the only Netflix show I've seen is the first season of Stranger Things a few years back.

New shows and movies come out literally every single week. It's an endless supply of entertainment.

A good place to look to see what people are watching are the top 10 movies or shows on the app.

But, it's very easy to be overwhelmed.

Three of my personal favorites are Love, Glow, and Atypical. Also a good seasonal Christmas Netflix series is Dash & Lily. Another hidden gem that I really liked is Teenage Bounty Hunters, but it was cancelled after one season.

Somebody Feed Phil. Food and travel show hosted by Phil Rosenthal, the creator of Everybody Loves Raymond. He's great and has a great personality. He's the anti-Anthony Bourdain.

Unsolved Mysteries if you like True Crime documentaries.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee (Seinfeld)

If you need a quick interview segment with two comedians. I usually watched this when I had lunch or dinner. Nothing you have to hyper focus on like a movie or tv show, just a quick watch. Hear some good stories from the comedy world.

Watch the first episode of Black Mirror, "The National Anthem," ASAP.

It's completely bonkers. Don't look anything up about it first. Go in cold, and just start watching it.

Love Death + Robots. It has its own thread in TV Talk.

I’ll mention Atypical again. The Queen’s Gambit is almost mandatory Netflix viewing.

I enjoyed All of Us Are Dead and Squid Game, and if you're into reality shows, Terrace House: Boys & Girls in the City and Singles Inferno are binge-worthy. Obviously, I tend to watch a lot of the foreign shows.

I also loved Never Have I Ever, and the Ali Wong specials, especially Baby Cobra, are comedy gold.
