The world owes Netflix a huge debt for saving us from hours and hours of commercials every year; however, we also owe them thanks for introducing audiences everywhere to a new type of entertainment consumption, the increasingly popular “binge-watch.” The binge-watch, wherein you enjoy many consecutive episodes of a single television series in order, has been made easier than ever with the popularization of streaming services. With that in mind, we here at Goliath have collected 10 underrated TV shows that are worthy of a binge-watch any day of the week (and twice on Sundays). Now we’re not saying they’re all available on Netflix (what with their regionally specific content, it’s difficult to assume), but we will say these series all make for fantastic binge watching if you manage to line up the episodes and pop down on your couch for some quality tube time.
10. 3% (2016-Present)
3% is a futuristic thriller and Netflix original series about a world divided into two sectors, one of progress and the other of devastation. Citizens are given the opportunity to join the side of progress on their 20th birthday, but only 3% of the candidates will pass ‘The Process’ and transition to the “Offshore” society. Although there are many dystopian series out there, 3% is an entertaining unique series with a young and talented Brazilan cast, perfect for those looking for something fresh and made outside of the US or UK.
On June 4, 2019, the English-dubbed dystopian series was renewed by Netflix for a third season, which will arrive on the streaming service on June 7, 2019.
