The Best Streaming Netflix TV Shows

List Criteria: Only serialized shows that are currently available to watch instantly on Netflix and were originally intended for TV. No movies.

The best streaming Netflix TV shows include some great television dramas, sci-fi/adventure shows, sitcoms, and reality TV programs. What are the best shows on Netflix? With so many choices, how can anyone decide which show to watch? Some might opt to revisit old favorites, like "Dawson's Creek" and "The Wonder Years," while other viewers are looking to check out some more recent TV shows that they missed during their original runs. What TV shows are streaming on Netflix? This list is all about deciding which Netflix streaming TV shows are the ones that are must-see television. Be sure to vote for your personal favorites, and vote down any shows you just couldn't get through. Also, feel free to add any great streaming Netflix shows that aren't listed.

Having a lot of options is not exactly a bad thing, but with the multitude of available Netflix streaming television programs, it can be a little overwhelming. Sure, Netflix "suggests" shows for you, but let's face it: Sometimes that doesn't work out so well. Just because you adore "Downton Abbey" does not mean you'll necessarily go for "The Tudors," for example. Hopefully, if you're on the fence about committing to a particular streaming TV show on Netflix, this list can help you out a bit.

Whether you're into heavier dramas like "Breaking Bad," "The Killing," and "Man Men," first-rate sitcoms like "30 Rock" and "Parks and Recreation," or the excellent science fiction TV programs like "Battlestar Galactica," you can easily get sucked in to a new favorite show watching Netflix streaming. There really is something out there for everyone!
