It is common knowledge that Netflix is famously miserly with their data. Even producers and those in charge of running shows have had a difficult time determining whether or not the people who were supposed to see what they put out into the world actually did. However, now that there is something called the Netflix Top 10, we are able to get at least a little bit of a glimpse behind the scenes.
1. Stranger Things
The fourth season of Stranger Things returns with a substantial amount of ambition as well as cinematic visuals, all of which continue to raise the overall scale and scope of the series. Even while there is possibly an excessive amount of nostalgia for horror films from the 1980s, this does not detract from the fact that there are genuine shocks and an appreciated push toward a more mature tone for the year.
The middle episodes of Volume I are drawn out and drawn out, which hampers the momentum coming out of the fourth episode. This is because the writers were trying to give everyone in the extremely big ensemble a good tale. The writing and directing, thankfully, get more concentrated and pick up the pace again in the last two episodes, which have some important discoveries, unexpected twists, and a cliffhanger that will make viewers impatient for the climax on July 1.
2. The Lincoln Lawyer
The Lincoln Lawyer is a densely packed thrillride that follows the trials (both emotional and literal) of L.A.’s best criminal defence attorney, Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo). The show brings, if not an actual bit of Paste’s favourite Bosch to a whole new audience, then at least the Connelly playbook. Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer is available to stream now.
Having said that, you shouldn’t anticipate something even like similar in terms of aesthetics here. The Lincoln Lawyer is a frothy show that also deals with high-level crime. The series was created by David E. Kelley, who also worked on Ally McBeal, and Ted Humphrey, who was the showrunner for The Good Wife. That is to say, although the story that Harry Bosch is a part of could be described as a sun-soaked noir, the story that Mickey Haller is a part of is mostly just sun-soaked.
This equilibrium is maintained for the most part. Unashamedly, The Lincoln Lawyer aspires to be on primetime rather than in the elite category. At the same time, though, due to the fact that it follows four major criminal arcs in addition to somewhere on the order of four thousand interpersonal ones, it often spreads itself too thin. Nevertheless, the casting is really astute, the performances are strong, and the moral as well as musical connections with Bosch are executed very well. This is going to be a delightful watch for both people who are familiar with Connelly and those who are not.
This LGBTQ+ romance has won the hearts of people all around the world. It tells the narrative of how two schoolboys, Charlie Spring (played by Joe Locke) and Nick Nelson (played by Kit Connor), went from being friends to boyfriends over the course of a traumatic school term. The show takes an all-ages approach, so it avoids the drugs, sex, and sadness of more mature high school entertainment like Euphoria.
Instead, it takes a cutesy route that makes up for what it lacks in dramatic stakes with its endearing qualities. This is the kind of show that you can easily watch in one sitting because to its short episodes of only 25 minutes, and if you’re the hopeless romantic type, you probably will.
Although the majority of the performers of Heartstopper are newcomers (with the exception of one A-list cameo), audiences may anticipate seeing much more work from these individuals in the years to come. In point of fact, trans actress Yasmin Finney, who plays the compassionate schoolgirl Elle, has just been cast in the Doctor Who 60th anniversary special, and the person responsible for the casting is none other than Russell T. Davies.
4. Is It Cake?
Is It Cake? is a game show that is perfect for those of you who are still upset that The Great British Bake Off has ended, as well as for those of you who want your game shows to have a dash of absurdity in them.
If you’ve ever looked through social media and seen someone cut open a handbag to uncover that the purse was actually a Victoria sponge cake, then you’ve probably seen an episode of “Is It Cake?” takes things to another extreme, as bakers try to trick a panel of judges determined to discover their cake (designed to seem like a common object) hidden in a lineup of non-edible items.
The judges are keen to find the cake because the bakers have made their cake look like an everyday object.The series is hosted by Mikey Day, who is best known for his work on Saturday Night Live. His comments and asides are as as eccentric and unexpected as the bakers’ creations.
5. It’s A Sin
It’s a Sin caused a stir when it was broadcast for the first time on Channel 4 at the beginning of 2021, and it looks like the show is on track to have its moment of awards glory on the eighth of May, which is this Sunday.
The series, which was written by the returning showrunner for Doctor Who, Russell T. Davies, was a real powerhouse drama that explored the lives of a group of gay men and their friends during the HIV/AIDS crisis in Britain during the 1980s and 1990s. The series told the story with sensitivity, empathy, and heart.
If you haven’t already seen It’s A Sin, now is the perfect time to catch up because the show goes from euphoria to heartbreak over the course of its five episodes. It’s led by a magnificent performance from Years and Years’ Olly Alexander, and if you haven’t already seen it, you’ll be sorry that you missed it the first time around because it’s that good.
6. Vikings: Valhalla
Fans of the first season of Vikings will be happy to learn that Netflix has added a spin-off series that will provide them with their fill of Norse action. The series will be available on the streaming service. The events of Vikings: Valhalla take place approximately one hundred years after those of the first series. The story begins with the St. Brice’s Day massacre, in which King Aethelred (Bosco Hogan) gives the command to kill every Dane living in England.
The show is centred on the infamous explorer Leif Eriksson, played by Sam Corlett, his sister Freydis Eriksdotter, played by Frida Gustavsson, and Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson, played by Leo Suter. The show boasts an impressive international cast, including actors from Australia, Scandinavia, and the United Kingdom, to bring these historical figures to life. The episode Vikings: Valhalla is a must-watch because it features a lot of blood and gore, a little amount of history, a lot of large hair, and a lot of fur-lined clothes.
7. All Of Us Are Dead
The newest great South Korean series to stream on Netflix is this terrifying coming-of-age zombie drama, which follows a group of students as they seek to engineer an escape from their high school – which has become ground zero for a zombie virus outbreak.
Across 12 episodes there are plenty of thrills and shocks, as well as no shortage of emotional moments thanks to some outstanding character work. It’s hardly a programme for the faint-hearted, with lots of blood and gore on show throughout, but if you can handle with the brutal moments then this could prove another ferociously addictive series.
8. Lost in Space
This Netflix sci-fi offering may have gone unnoticed since it didn’t receive the same kind of attention as some of the streamer’s other blockbuster originals. However, now is the ideal moment to catch up, as the third and final season has just premiered, garnering critical praise and bringing the tale to a satisfying conclusion.
That means there’s no need to be concerned about the programme being abruptly cancelled, leaving important plot strands unsolved, as has happened to many other cult favourites in the past.Toby Stephens (Black Sails) and Molly Parker (House of Cards) star as a couple who embark on a colonising mission in space with their children that quickly goes awry, leaving them stranded in space, as the title suggests.
They’ll have to work together if they wish to survive and return to civilization, despite encountering some deadly threats and gaining a new ally in the form of a weird alien robot. Lost In Space has been lauded for its emotive story arcs, great performances, and breathtaking visual effects, with the majority of fans thinking that the show improves rather than degrades in quality with time. If you remember the iconic 1965 series that this show is based on, you can rest confident that Netflix’s version is a worthy successor.
9. Arcane: League of Legends
Given the poor track record of video game adaptations, you’d be excused for being sceptical about whether Arcane is worth your time. Rest assured, though, that it most certainly is. The animated series is based on the popular online game League of Legends, but you don’t need to be familiar with the game to be enthralled by its larger-than-life characters or lose yourself in its lush fantasy universe.
Vi (Hailee Steinfeld of Hawkeye) is a fearless adolescent living in the impoverished Zaun, an underground city beneath the technologically superior sanctuary of Piltover. She plots to burgle the home of a rich scholar with the help of a few buddies on one of her travels to the surface, but she gets more than she bargained for when they cause a big explosion after mishandling one of their target’s studies, putting the enforcers on their tails.
Arcane stands out among the crowded animated environment not just for its engaging tale and outstanding character work, but also for its gorgeous art style, which merges 2D and 3D animation to produce a genuinely distinctive aesthetic. In just the first three episodes, there are some magnificent moments, with many more to come as Netflix continues to roll out the series in stages throughout November. Give it a shot; you won’t be disappointed!
10. Black Mirror
Black Mirror is a science fiction series that examines how people’s impulses conflict with technological progress. Every episode of Black Mirror is a unique experience. The show’s tone can range from humorous to terrifying. The episodes’ narratives all lampoon some facet of modern society, with subjects such as social networking, parental control, and surveillance frequently being addressed.
Technology gone awry is a recurring subject in the series, and we’re all woefully unprepared to deal with it. Netflix has all five seasons available to watch. Plus, there’s Bandersnatch, an interactive Black Mirror film that lets you test how well you’d manage to run the show in this bizarre world.
Here is the list of top 10 netflix series 2022. The fact that reality shows, prestige television, animated children’s shows, and docuseries of every stripe are all represented on the list of Netflix’s daily Top 10 Most Popular illustrates that subscribers have a voracious taste for a wide variety of programming.
