There are plenty of great TV series on Netflix Instant (and you can find more with these secret codes). If you’re attempting to figure out what to see next, here’s a fantastic place to begin with a take a look at 50 of the best shows on Netflix today, ranked.50.
Weeds(8 of 8 seasons)Prior to Walter White, there was Nancy Botwin,
a suburban housewife turned pot dealer to take care of her kids after her partner dies. Weeds is a light comedy that grows gradually darker throughout the series as the stakes are raised, but the show works best in its early seasons when it’s just a grieving mother (Mary Louise Parker) out of her depth trying to offer cent bags in a conservative suburban neighborhood. It’s amusing, offbeat, and irreverent, and occupied with an amazingly amusing supporting cast (Justin Kirk, Kevin Nealon, Elizabeth Perkins, Romany Malco). Weeds, however, loses its attraction in later seasons as Nancy Botwin works herself up the chain from small-time pot dealer to distribute to international drug kingpin and ignores why she got into the drug business in the first location: To offer her kids.

Ozark, from part of the team behind Ben Affleck’s The Accountant, is the current example of what I call stress-watching tv. A combination of Breaking Bad and Family, Ozark sees a money launderer (Jason Bateman) and his wife (Laura Linney) move from Chicago to backwoods Missouri in an effort to clean up $8 million in three months, lest their entire family be killed by a Mexican drug cartel. It’s not an enjoyable program, and it’s hardly amusing, however like Bloodline, it’s the type of series where the audience is distressed to binge through it just to see if the villains will make it through and how. It’s a seedy, well-written, well-acted series, and Bateman is great, but the whole point of Ozark is to put the viewer through the wringer: It’s tense, and difficult, and we do not expect resolution; we expect relief.
