A series of Science Fiction and Drama, Sense 8 deals with eight foreigners who, for some reason unknown to them, are connected and have the ability to communicate telepathically. The series through its multiple seasons further teaches the difficulties of having this connection, as at the end of the end it brings them together and discover the reason why they have telepathy in the first place. Besides being a great idea, Sense 8 has good actors and never fails to continually interest its audience.

Although it is not made for the typical spectator who expects “infantile” things from cartoons, this netflix original series is a portrait of the most extravagant, but also appropriate, with respect to the life of an old-fashioned actor, unpretentious but yes a lot of sarcasm. If we add the multiple references to pop culture that intermingles in its plot, the show is a treasure that many can not enjoy due to their own prejudices.

Neither very dark nor very kitsch, this Netflix original series made us quickly forget the terrible film of 2003, and created a mythology that takes advantage of the binge-watching format in a big way.
Marvel’s Daredevil was the risky bet of Marvel and Netflix to produce original content based on superheroes. Daredevil was the first series of the heroes of Netflix, narrating the adventures of a blind lawyer, who puts on a mask at night to fight crime. In this way, a story of vigilantes and, at the same time, a judicial drama develops in two bands. Highly recommended if you like superheroes, you will not be disappointed even a bit.

A series about drug dealers that existed in real life and still have their mark in the world, Narcos is about the life of the most famous drug trafficker in all history: Pablo Emilio Escobar. Following the life of the drug trafficker from childhood, the day in which he made his first business with cocaine, until his death when they ended up killing him on his own roof.
Narcos is special not only because it is the only series on Netflix that deals with real drug dealers, but also because, although one knows that the criminals in question were bad and did many terrible things, you still find yourself wanting them to win due to the tremendous performance of the actors in the series.

Although we had a lot of faith to this series in its beginnings, it can not be denied that in these last seasons, particularly the third, the show has been denying the qualities that made it so popular at the beginning.
House of Cards is still one of the Best Netflix original series to watch right now, although it has been splattered by the Kevin Spacey scandal. This satire in key of political drama exposes the entrails of the legislative system and of the American executive power, demonstrating its greater weaknesses. A pearlite friends. In addition to the defenestrado Spacey, the series also has a cast of great woman, who will leave you without hiccups. The scripts, dialogues and performances make it the greatest Netflix drama series ever.

The second season of Netflix original series, Stranger Things, was just added. This supernatural series is based on the great cultural myths of the eighties to narrate a complex plot of science fiction, set in the small mountain town of Hawkins (Indiana). We recommend it for it is worth seeing, you will not be disappointed even one iota. Proof of that is the 8.9 Rating it has on IMDB and more than half million people voted for it can’t all be wrong.

Over the past 10 years, technology has firmly entered our lives. It is easier for us to tell about our problem on Facebook than to entrust the secret to a loved one. So in the world of the “Black Mirror“, people cannot live without technologies that bring them harm and suffering.
It is a series that was acquired by Netflix and thanks to it the third season was launched, one of the best science fiction series in history. Basically they are a series of chapters in which each one of the episodes is different from the other, different actors act and the plot is unique, although all the chapters have a common theme, the relationship of humans with technology and how it affects our lives.
It is, if not the the best, one of the best Netflix original series to watch right now. An interesting series that poses different scenarios and situations, ideal if you like the series that make you think and blow your mind. I am a fan of science fiction and this series has marked me.
