I usually don't love British comedies personally, but this one was so funny and entertaining! The show was originally called 'Scrotal Recall' and follows the main character Dylan after he finds out he has an STI and has to call all his previous lovers to tell them to get tested too. It's super easy to watch and there's 2 whole season to binge watch.
2. Comedy Bang! Bang!
I've only watched a few episodes of this show but it's probably the most original comedy series on Netflix right now. It's a talkshow parody that features celebrity guests that we all know and love, comedy sketches and animations. This show will keep you entertained for 3 seasons worth of great TV!
3. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

5. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
This show was created by the amazing Tina Fey after her amazing performances in both SNL and 30 Rock. She took a backseat in this one and instead of being the main character she stayed behind the scenes and created all the amazing jokes that are consistently hilarious in this show!
I'm sure most of you reading this article have hopefully already watched all the seasons of friends (I say hopefully because it's one of my favourite shows so I'll judge you if you haven't). But if not I highly recommend it! It's one of the easiest comedy shows to watch since the episodes are only 30 minutes long and it's just super relatable to all 20-30 somethings trying to figure out their lives.
7. BoJack Horseman
BoJack is a half-horse, half man and a washed up TV star from the 90s living in Hollywood and complaining about everything and everyone. He drinks too much and wears a lot of colourful sweaters. What more could you ask for in an animated TV comedy?
8. Jane The Virgin
Jane The Virgin is meant to be over-the-top dramatic, making light fun of the classic Spanish telenovelas that are always super dramatic. It follows the main character Jane, a virgin waiting for marriage, after she is accidentally artificially inseminated. Lots of drama ensues after that.
9. Freaks And Geeks
The classic coming-of-age show that we all loved and somehow got cancelled after giving us only one season. Luckily, they still offer this show on Netflix so we can go back and rewatch it as many times as we want!
10. The Office
The most classic and beloved comedy series on Netflix is of course, The Office. This mockumentary made an entertaining show with the best cast of characters with their own special quirks about them. Even if you've already watched this series it's one that doesn't get old if you decide to watch it again.

After the previously blind Prairie returns home after being kidnapped seven years ago, many believe it's a miracle. But there could be more dangerous things going on. It's a mysterious, sci-fi drama that will keep you guessing the entire time.
6. 13 Reasons Why
This show created a lot of controversy, which is expected since it dealt with teen suicide. It's a very tough topic since most people prefer to look the other way when it comes to this subject matter instead of discussing it. There were successful parts to the show but there were also unsuccessful parts that should have been addressed.
7. Stranger Things
The second season of Stranger Things just dropped and if you didn't spend all weekend binge-watching it, you have some catching up to do. If you haven't watched this series at all I recommend it because it's both interesting and has a hint of horror to it.

I'm only slightly embarrassed to admit that I've watched this show an lot.. like a lot a lot. It's just so easy to watch and it's pretty entertaining to watch the lives of these super rich upper east side teens.
5. How I Met Your Mother
How I Met Your Mother is a cute and ridiculous story following a father as he recounts to his two children how he ended up meeting their mother. It's a similar show to Friends, where five friends meet up and tons of entertaining plots ensue.
