We only wonder which next show to watch.We've put together a list of the top 10 Netflix shows that you can watch right now to answer your question. These shows range from multi-season comedy to series you can really get into.These are the top 10 shows you can binge-watch on Netflix.1. Russian DollCredit: NetflixRussian Doll is as close as you can get to the perfect Netflix binge-watch.It's short with only eight episodes of 30 minutes each. The first season consists of eight episodes. It's bold and covers themes of mortality, trauma and human connection, all set against the backdrop New York's East Village. It's also hilarious. Natasha Lyonne starred in the role of Nadia, a woman trapped in a time loop after she dies on her 36th Birthday. Nadia's Groundhog Dayesque adventures become more complex as the series progresses. She races against the loop in an attempt to figure out why she can't stop dying, and what the loop has to do to her connection with Alan (an alleged stranger who is experiencing the exact same loop).

Schitt's CreekSchitt's creek takes a premise which could have easily been mean-spirited, a wealthy family struggling to live in a small community, and transforms it into one of the most hilarious and heartfelt shows in recent years. This Emmy-award winning comedy invites viewers to fall in love over six seasons with the Rose family, and the residents of the town. These characters may be a bit sexist, but their mutual love and support will make you laugh and cry at the same time. Schitt's Creek is worth a look thanks to Catherine O'Hara's accents and clothes, but there's so many more things to love about where that came.

Be careful not to get soggy bottoms. Belen Edwards Entertainment Fellow (*).How to watch: The Great British Baking Show streaming now on Netflix4. 4.Have you seen Avatar: Last Airbender yet.

Sweet ToothCredit: COURTESY of NETFLIXSweet Tooth was an unexpectedly fantastic addition to Netflix's 2021 line-up. Its big bet on children's wonder paid off. Although the story takes place after a devastating virus decimates the human population, and causes the collapse of civilisation (yikes), Sweet Tooth tells the story from the perspective Gus, a human-deer hybrid whose father protected him from the worst until it became impossible to shelter. Gus's story of growing up in a world he didn't know existed is a touching tale about a young man. It features a talented supporting cast, and an excellent cute-to-concern ratio. A.N.

Friday Night LightsOne common misconception about shows that focus on sports is that you must be passionate about the sport in order to enjoy the show. Friday Night Lights is a perfect example of this misconception. FNL, a movie based on the same book, is a story about a Texas high school football team. But it's also the story of a community and all the individual successes and systemic failures that make up the crazy little thing that we call life. You can cry at Coach Taylor’s pre-game speeches or root for Tim Riggins (the weaponized himbo Tim Riggins), or simply marvel at Mrs. Coach’s hair. All reactions are valid until Friday Night Lights.

Derry Girls, which centers on four Catholic schoolgirls and one Englishman named James, is a sitcom in its truest form. It finds humor in a world rife in conflict and fear. The series is a touching portrait of friendship that transcends time and place, which makes it an outstanding representation of camaraderie, growth, and community. Alison Foreman, Entertainment Reporter (*)How to Watch: Derry Girls is available on Netflix.8. Never Have I EverCredit: ISABELLA B. VOSMIKOVA/NETFLIXThere are many coming-of-age comedy films, but none quite like Never Have I Ever. It is the only high school show to feature Devi, an Indian-American girl, as its protagonist (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan plays Devi). John McEnroe is the narrator, a tennis legend. Another reason is that underneath all the teen hijinks it is a sensitive exploration into guilt and grief. We laughed, we cried and we looked at Ben, the poor rich little boy. We wondered if Devi was a horrible person. We loved her for that. Angie Han, Deputy Entertainment Editor (*)How to watch: Never Have I Ever streaming on Netflix9. The Good PlaceMike Schur's compelling tale about life after death is a must-see. The series stars Kristen Bell and Ted Danson as well as Jamela Jamil, Manny Jacinto and Manny Carden. It is the most funny comedy show since The Office.You can't give away the story of Good Place without giving away something, as any Good Place fan will know. You'll have to believe us. We promise that you will be hooked after the first episode. A.F.
