IMDb : 8.7 Rotten Tomatoes : 89% Google : 94%
Type : Drama, History
Duration : Avg. Episode Length 58 min – 5 Seasons 41 episodes in total
Review and comment: Queen Elizabeth II and many of her royal family are still alive today. Despite this, The Crown is a brave series that contains a lot of criticism and tells about some scandals from time to time. Do not watch the series with the expectation of a history documentary, because it contains a lot of fictional events as well as real events. It is a really attractive period production with its costumes, decor and colors. The acting is poetic. All of the actors are proven names in the series industry. Even if you don’t like period productions, let’s underline that it is a series that you should definitely give a chance.
9. The Witcher ( IMDb: 8.2 )
The series takes place in a very fantastic universe; dwarves, elves, dragons, witches and more.

IMDb : 8.2 Rotten Tomatoes : 67% Google : 95%
Type : Fantasy, Adventure, Action
Review and comment: The Witcher is a production that Netflix made a strategic move when it lost interest and users. We were all very excited when he announced that he would make a series of a story that already has a book and a game. We were afraid of disappointment, but the series managed to satisfy the majority. Another thing we need to say about the series is the visual feast it brings to the audience. In fact, this series was Netflix’s production with the most visual effects so far. The most criticized aspect of the series is that it is a bit complicated. But those who like the series also say that this complexity is what makes the series special.
8. Westworld ( IMDb: 8.7 )

This dangerous game, in which robots under human command gain consciousness as a result of an error, brings the conflict between humans and robots from the future to the present. Who do you think will win this war?

Review and comment: The Umbrella Academy is actually a comic book adaptation. But it is not based on noble and charismatic stories and characters like Daradevil, Punisher, Batman we know.

Review and comment: It can be expected to be slow and boring from the series whose plot is shaped by chess. However, contrary to all these expectations, it was a fast-paced production that drew the audience in.

Critic Rating (Metascore) : 66/100

Duration : Avg. Episode Length 1 hour – 1 Season 38 episodes in total
Review and comment: Jason Bateman, who plays the main character of the series, is also the producer and director of all four episodes. Just like Ricky Gervais in After Life. This adds a remarkable coherence to the series, in our opinion. Ozark is a compelling money-laundering story of genius wielding for evil purposes! Its similarity to Breaking Bad is frequently discussed, but we think it is a very different productions. The color palette of the series is a bit heavy and consists of dark colors. It’s a little overwhelming, but it keeps the tension high. Ozark’s action and suspense pace does not drop for a moment. The stories come together perfectly and the plots are very successful.
3. Dark ( IMDb: 8.8 )
One of the rising stars of Netflix science fiction series in recent years! Dark, a science fiction and thriller genre, deals with the mysterious events that occurred after the disappearance of two children in a small town. The story takes place in different periods, and its mystery sets it apart from other science fiction series, making it an elusive puzzle. Baran bo Odar, who also directed films such as Who Am I, Das letzte Schweigen, Nuit Blanche, directed the series full of horror and tension.

Critic Rating (Metascore) : 67/100
Type : Sci-Fi, Drama, Mystery, Thriller
Duration : Avg. Episode Length 1 hour – 3 Seasons 26 episodes in total
Review and comment: A great confusion and an unsolved mystery. Dark is one of the most influential and impressive series of recent times, which requires focus on everything, where the mind blur is at its peak, and the concept of time is disappearing. You may need to take notes and watch the series by looking at some of the diagrams that the series gives you in order to solve and comprehend the events, people and times. This takes this series far beyond the “sit and watch” experience. Being in German also adds a different texture to Dark. In addition, a lot of clues are given at many points in the series. Capturing these details and seeing the effect on the result provides a completely different satisfaction as well as the pleasure of watching the series. The first few chapters may seem boring to you. There are so many characters, and they are all part of the story somehow. But after a few episodes, you will be watching an excellent series that wraps your mind and keeps your thoughts busy.
2. La casa de papel ( IMDb: 8.4 )
The Professor, who brings together the notorious criminals of history, has a big robbery in mind. He plots for a long time to rob the Royal Mint of Spain.

Then all Spain and the world turn their eyes to the mint. The hostages inside, the huge crowd supporting the robbery outside, the police force, the robbery team and the fast-paced minutes. A mind-blowing robbery will draw you in.

Review and comment: It is a unique adventure with striking scenes, carrying sociological and philosophical values, delving into the depths of human psychology at every opportunity, admiring intelligence and where the tension does not decrease for a minute! It’s never a standard heist and action drama. Behind this image is a story with immense depth. The Spanish series La Casa de Papel is arguably the best TV series to come out of Europe in recent times. In addition to all these, it is a phenomenon that has become a phenomenon with its music, art direction, acting, cast and editing! If you haven’t watched it, watch it now! 🙂
1. The Boys ( IMDb: 8.7 )
The Boys is a very different series from the superhero stories you’re used to. Superheroes abuse their power and reputation. The careers of superheroes led by a large corporation seem to be quite glamorous, and the public is their constant supporter. But things are not as they seem. Made up of ex-villains dedicated to upholding the law in this corrupt universe, The Boys will understand their language and are determined to take down the villains.
