Based in 1996, Everything Sucks! really mirrors Freaks and Geeks. It shows what life was like as an outcast without any social media or really any technology.

If you love shows about high school, then this is the show for you. Unfortunately, there won't be a season 2, as it was canceled by Netflix.
Have you ever thought about what it would be like to work with your mom? Well, if you're curious at all, just watch Great News!

Dynasty is a very dramatic show, so if you're into that, then you'll love this one. It follows two of America's wealthiest families and their feud against each other. They fight over things like their children, their assets, and of course, money. This show will make you want to be rich AF, but also shows you the darker side of living an extravagant lifestyle.
This is one of my favourite shows on Netflix Canada. It follows a family who has a son named Sam who is a teenager the autism spectrum. Throughout the series, it shows Sam wanting to find love, his sister questioning her sexuality, and the mom doing pretty backstabbing things to the family. It's the most heartwarming show as it shows that family will be there for you through everything. There are currently 2 seasons and it was renewed for a 3rd.
