When you’re the biggest streaming company in the world and make as many new Netflix movies and shows as it does, there’s bound to be a few misfires – and this year has seen its fair share already, including J-Lo-in-space AI thriller Atlas, which has been inexplicably popular despite terrible reviews, and Zach Snyder’s Rebel Moon Part 2, which was not the epic sci-fi sequel we were hoping for.

Suffice to say, there haven’t been that many new entries in our best Netflix movies guide, but when it comes to TV shows, Netflix has been delivering winner after winner this year in pretty much every genre: we’ve had swooning rom-coms, terrifying tales of obsession, quirky fantasy and some brain-melting sci-fi too – all of which have earned a place on our best Netflix shows list.
