Long gone are the days when we had to go to a DVD rental store or when we had to find a reputable torrent site if we felt like watching something. Nowadays, finding a TV show couldn't be easier. All we have to do is log on to our Netflix account and choose a series from countless of options that are available to us.
As such, it makes perfect sense that most of us choose to stay in on our days off. Why venture out when we can spend the day on the sofa, flicking through various TV shows, with a bowl of ice cream in our hands?
Most of us probably haven't seen every single TV series that has been ever made. After all, how could we? There are just way too many awesome shows out there. However, the majority of us have given critically-acclaimed shows as well as cult classics a chance.
Some of them we loved and thus watched until the very end (or we might still be watching them because at times TV shows don't end for decades). Others we found boring and gave up on after just one or two episodes.
Regardless of how many shows everyone has watched to the very end, everyone with a Netflix subscription should know the names of the below 50 shows.
