4 Original Netflix Shows You Need To Watch | TV & Movies


So it’s no secret that we all have a slight Netflix addiction, right? Okay, now that we got that covered, we can move on and talk about the best Netflix shows!

Netflix has only been available in Saudi Arabia for about a year now, but I’ve already devoured a lot of the shows and movies on there already.

I featured a guest post a while ago, where Caroline from Culture Coverage talked about some great movies on Netflix, so if you want something with less commitment, then you can go and read that post!


1. Scream

This is one of my all-time favorite shows, and it just happens to be a Netflix original!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I adore slasher and anything horror, so when I found out that there was a modern show based on one of the best slasher movie franchise, Scream™, I just had to watch it!

The first season came out spring(ish) 2015, and the second season came out this spring (2016).

If you’ve watched and loved, the Scream movies, then I think you’ll really like this show! Just imagine the characters of the movies living in 2016, add a little more mystery and romance, and you’ve got a blurb about the show!


2. Stranger Things

I’m not gonna lie, I started watching this because Michael Clifford (one of the hottest Australian punk rocker band guy out there! Check out this post if you don’t know which band he’s in) tweeted about it one day.

I heard some reviews where people compared it to American Horror story, but in my opinion, it’s like comparing oranges to apples; nothing in common. But that doesn’t mean that this show isn’t amazing!

It’s a weird Sci-Fi set in the 80’s, and there’s this flip side, and just so… different. So if you’re into that, then watch the first couple episodes and see how you like it, it’s only 8 episodes up till now!

I almost didn’t put it on this list because it was so not what I’m used to, but it does deserve the hype that it’s getting, plus I finished the whole season in a day, so I mean, it has to take this spot.


3. Jessica Jones

I’m not the biggest fan of Marvel, but I’m trying to get into it more, and I think this show is going to be my gateway.

I started watching it last year, and I remember binge watching it, but I don’t really remember what happened in the show exactly… Yeah, I need to re-watch it, like now.

I actually didn’t know that it was a comic series until I mentioned it to Jana (My best friend, I know older readers are kind of sick of me repeating that.). I’ll probably check those out soon.

If you’re into weird, mystery-esque shows with a bit of supernatural/superpowers, then I think this is the show for you!


4. Between

I distinctly remember watching this after I finished Scream and thinking ‘wow, that was… uh… different…’

As you can already tell, I like shows to be unique, even though most of the time, they’re really confusing.

This kind of reminded me of The Darkest Minds (but I never read that trilogy soo…). There’s this virus or whatever that just kills off people that are over 22 or something, the concept is really cool!

I think if  you’re a fan of dystopian survival stories, with weird viruses and government issues, then you’ll adore this!


If you guys have any Netflix shows that you love, or just shows in general, then leave them in the comments because I’ve been looking for something to start watching after I finish Pokemon!

Much love, Rawan ❤ …
