Everyone has their own ideas for what shows ought to comprise a list of the best Netflix series. Mine, for example, would definitely have Narcos as well as the Narcos: Mexico spin-off somewhere in the ranking. While other people would no doubt include global Netflix fan favorites, like The Crown. My list, by the way, would also have some near-perfect international series you should check out if you haven’t yet, including the Korean drama Crash Landing on You as well as the Swedish crime thriller Snabba Cash.

Admittedly, of course, my list and probably yours too would no doubt end up being pretty subjective. Somebody asks you what you think are some of the best Netflix series, and you’ll probably answer with whatever you liked the best, right? Below, however, you’ll find a Netflix ranking of a different sort. It’s a slightly more objective rundown of some of the highest-rated series currently available on the streamer. Specifically, based on Rotten Tomatoes scores.

One of the interesting things about the list below is that it spans really all genres. There’s international fare, animated series, romantic comedies, and more. First on the list below, Call My Agent!, is in fact so good that it’s getting a British remake. One that will reportedly be packed with star cameos, including from Helena Bonham Carter, Dominic West, and more.
