The series takes characters and inspiration from the Archie comics universe.

This is easily one of our favourite Netflix originals. Sex Education primarily deals with the complex emotions that accompany physical desire. The show follows Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield) a socially awkward high school student and his mother Jean Milburn (Gillian Anderson) who is licensed sex and relationships therapist. Otis and his friend Maeve, set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their classmates problems making the show relatable and hilarious. It’s no surprise why this show archived a rotten tomatoes score of 94%, we highly recommend this show.

This Spanish series has arguably one of the hottest casts on the streaming giant. With three seasons available to stream and watch it continues to occupy the clicks and eyes of many.

Not only is it one of the most viewed and discussed shows, but it also boasts an excellent grade of 97%. 

1. Big mouth

Rotten Tomatoes score: 100%.  

The best Netflix series is, hands down, comedian Nick Kroll show Big Mouth.  Nick Kroll and friends (including John Mulaney, Jessi Klein, and Jenny Slate, among others) essentially hop into an animated time machine to play young, more insecure, and hornier versions of themselves as adolescent tweens beginning to date and watch porn, coming to grips with their emotions and sexuality. With a no-holds-barred approach to the horrors of puberty and the freeing format of animation it is easy to see why the show archived a rotten tomatoes score of 100%. We can’t recommend this show enough.
