8. "Ginny and Georgia" (Netflix original, 2021-present)

Description: “Free-spirited Georgia and her two kids, Ginny and Austin, move north in search of a fresh start but find that the road to new beginnings can be bumpy.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 68%

What critics said: “The body of the series is a bantery young-adult soap, the head a woman-on-the-edge thriller, and the tail a race melodrama. The creator, Sarah Lampert, must have looked upon her handiwork with proud amusement.” — New Yorker (season one)

7. "The Serpent" (Netflix original, 2021)

Description: “In the 1970s, merciless killer Charles Sobhraj preys on travelers exploring the “hippie trail” of South Asia. Based on shocking true events.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 68%

What critics said: “The Serpent ends up being an infuriating blueprint for how bad storytelling choices, bad accents and an opaque central performance can thwart even the most inherently gripping of yarns.” — Hollywood Reporter

6. "Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn" (Nickelodeon, 2014-2018)

Description: “Just because they’re quadruplets, that doesn’t mean these 10-year-olds always get along. But for all the bickering, they’re loyal to the last.”

4. "The Circle" (Netflix original, 2020-present)

Description: “Status and strategy collide in this social experiment and competition show where online players flirt, befriend and catfish their way toward $100,000.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 81%

What critics said: “In a world where social media is an ever-present utility, we all make similar decisions daily, just without the promise of $100,000. The Circle may be a game show, but it’s also a microcosm of society as a whole.” — The Spool (season two)

3. "Life in Color with David Attenborough" (Netflix original, 2021-present)

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 88%

What critics said: “The Baker and the Beauty, ABC’s adaptation of the hit Israeli comedy Beauty and the Baker, is a punchy pastelito of goodness that would satisfy the sweet tooth of any rom-com fan.” — TV Guide (season one)

1. "Shadow and Bone" (Netflix original, 2021-present)

Description: “Dark forces conspire against orphan mapmaker Alina Starkov when she unleashes an extraordinary power that could change the fate of her war-torn world.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 86%

What critics said: “If Shadow and Bone doesn’t provide quite the level of characterizing nuance and challenging chronological complexity of The Witcher — and it does not — it does go down easier, and seems expressly intended to make long weekend afternoons pass more quickly.” — NPR (season one)
