Netflix has something for everyone, but there’s a lot of waste in its catalog from the classic TV shows that everyone has heard of. Our guide to Netflix UK’s best TV series is updated weekly to help you avoid modest programs and find the best things to watch. We are trying to choose the less clear gemstones as well, so we are sure you will find a show you really don’t know.
However, if nothing captures your imagination, try a bunch of the best Netflix documentaries and the best movies on Netflix UK for more options.
The assassination of Gianni Versace
From the same team behind The People v O.J. Simpsonnings is the life story of Andrew Conanan – albeit a bit embellished – who killed world-famous fashion designer Gianni Versace in 1997 outside his home in Miami Break, Florida. This dark elegant series, which first appeared on BBC in the UK but is now captured by Netflix. The story begins on the character of Conanan, revealing an eccentric, mysterious, and ultimately dark twist played by Darren Kreis – known as Blaine Anderson in Jelly. From start to finish, this show is an attractive show worth it.
The first original version of Netflix is absolutely a great crime and a black comedy crime to watch if you didn’t see it the first time. Stevie Van Zandt, known for his role as mob leader in The Sopranos, plays a very familiar monster who chooses to move to Norway when he turns into a state witness. He ends up in Lillehammer, which he remembers from the 1994 Winter Olympics, and is expected to start building a criminal mafia-style empire, complete with an unnatural strip, in partnership with some of the less subtle locals. Watch it here.
Koir Al Ain
After two impressive first series, “Quire Eye” unexpectedly returns to a third. Based on the popular original show Queer Eye for Straight Guy, this Netflix reincarnation is just as fun because it’s rewarding. Five gay men – Jonathan Van Ness, Tan France, Bobby Burke, Caramo Brown, Anthony Borowski – descend from the lives of the people running for the show and help give them some TLC, both in their personal and professional lives. Although the idea looks somewhat shallow, the offer is quite satisfying as the hosts help rebuild the confidence of their guests. Instead of focusing on major cities in the United States, Fab Five descends to more rural areas of the United States and in Season Three they reside in Kansas City, Missouri.
Formula 1: Survival campaign
Netflix’s expected Formula 1 document series provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse into a sport of high drama, high stakes and incredible speed. Through insights not only from drivers but also from owners and managers of teams, the series provides a true and comprehensive sense of what it takes for a global racing phenomenon, from boardroom policy to stops of today’s race. Some characters come better than others, and the rivalry between the teams and individuals is what makes the series worth it, whether you’re a fan or a F1 novice.
