The 8 Netflix Originals With 100% Score On Rotten Tomatoes

Netflix offers an infinite array of original shows and movies. This is exciting, but it also makes choosing something to watch difficult. The hunt for something widely regarded as perfect brings another challenge into the mix. Balancing these desires usually ends with prospective viewers eating all their prepared snacks before the opening credits even begin. How's a person supposed to figure out what Netflix originals are truly worth their time?

Here's one way of cutting through all the choice paralysis: You can pay attention to the select few Netflix originals that have managed to achieve a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes. People rarely agree on anything nowadays, so entertainment that's earned a unanimous thumbs-up is certainly worth a weekend binge session. Even more exciting is the fact that these productions are enormously varied, ensuring everyone gets the eyeball food they need: Mythical animated quests and adolescent tales of entrepreneurship alike have earned 100% scores. No need to venture into the sunlight this weekend — everything you need to feed your soul is already at your fingertips. These eight Netflix originals have each earned an impressive 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes.


"Crazyhead" pairs demon-hunting with mental health journeys to fantastic effect. Throughout her life, Amy (Cara Theobold) has seen flashes of the demonic in random strangers. She's been led to believe this is the result of mental illness, but everything changes when she meets Raquel (Susan Wokoma), who saves her from a demon attack. Turns out, Amy's "hallucinations" are entirely real. The evil spirit that Raquel defeats jumps into a new body, which winds up being Amy's roommate and best friend, Suzanne (Riann Steele). When Amy and Raquel try to exorcise the demon, absolutely nothing goes according to plan, and the two wind up with a revenant on their hands. 

Humor keeps "Crazyhead" moving smoothly from one wild twist to the next. A large dose of the comic relief comes from Amy's friend Jake (Lewis Reeves), whose infatuation with her somehow manages to become endearing instead of sleazy. Though this series will make you laugh, it goes to some significantly emotional places as well. As the New Stateman put it, "Like the US sitcoms 'Broad City' or 'Parks and Rec,' the jokes in 'Crazyhead' flirt with edginess while ultimately remaining sweet-natured, rooted as they are in the dynamics between characters who care deeply for one another." We 100% agree.

Blood of Zeus

"Blood of Zeus" brings Greek mythology to life with slick animation and fantastic voice acting. We follow Heron (Derek Phillips), a miner who lives on the outskirts of town with his mother. The two have been ostracized from society, due to his illegitimate birth, an event that is shrouded in secrecy — for good reason, as we find out. Heron is a demigod, the result of a tryst between Zeus and the wife of a sadistic king.

"Just like a soap opera, or even 'Game of Thrones,'" Thrillist declared in their review, "these gods are constantly scheming and using each other as chess pieces, which only means trouble for the poor mortals on the ground that suffer the consequences." Therein lies the dramatic appeal of "Blood of Zeus": Most of the series' gods possess more personality flaws than the humans who scurry beneath them. They plot constantly, motivated by jealousy and ignorance. Don't worry about the show devolving into a celestial drama, however — action sequences regularly slam the viewer with a barrage of arterial spray and dismembered limbs. "Blood of Zeus" tugs at the heartstrings as often as it tears them out of characters' chests.

Call My Agent!

"Call My Agent!" manages to make the lives of those working in the entertainment industry grounded and relatable, not to mention hilarious. Even better, this satirical series already has multiple seasons ready for you to enjoy.

"Call My Agent!" primarily focuses on a gaggle of agents as they attempt to placate the thespians under their wing. Right off the bat, viewers experience the emotional turmoil involved in telling an actress she's lost the part in a Quentin Tarantino project because she's "too old." More complications arise with the death of the agency's founder, forcing the agents to hurriedly save face. "It helps that the storylines are engrossing, that the scripts are witty and that the four central characters are so sharply defined and well played that you're eager to spend time in their company as they try to keep their pampered celebs, if not content, at least on their books," the Independent wrote in their glowing review. That just about sums up this stupendous series' appeal.


A few minutes into "Giri/Haji," we see one man get stabbed in the back and another gunned down in a restaurant. This jarring beginning immediately gets the viewer to lean in for a closer look. As it turns out, these murders are related to the Yakuza. Tokyo detective Kenzo Mori (Takehiro Hira) is charged with unraveling the series' mystery, which he believes involves his brother, who was previously thought to be dead. Mori must travel to London to discover if his sibling actually did manage to defy death, and if he's now taking action to start a Tokyo gang war.

"Despite being filled with tangents and B-plot loop-the-loops," Rolling Stone wrote in their review, "['Giri/Haji'] has an incredible facility for keeping it all together. Any feeling of being momentarily lost is eventually rewarded with patience." This smooth integration of storytelling elements is the series' greatest success, though the cinematography, which oozes style, is nearly as impressive. If the crime thriller genre has been failing to deliver for you lately, make a point of sitting down with this series. Get ready to lose sleep, however — it's hard not to binge it all in one sitting.

Dash & Lily

Some people love Christmas, while others dread it. "Dash & Lily" balances both viewpoints. Dash (Austin Abrams) finds Christmas to be a terrible time of year reserved for those who don't know how miserable they actually are. Lily (Midori Francis), in contrast, sings carols and spreads joy. While perusing his favorite bookstore, self-identified loner Dash discovers a red notebook containing a scavenger hunt, offering excitement to anyone willing to attend a live poetry reading. The notebook is penned by Lily, of course. The two proceed to spend the week leading up to Christmas exchanging the notebook and daring each other to experience new things — all while never actually meeting face to face.

Teen romance and Christmas combined might sound like a recipe for sappy excess. But somehow, "Dash & Lily" manages to suck even the most jaded adults into the joy of newfound love. As The Hollywood Reporter put it, "'Dash & Lily' is neither clumsy nor cheap-looking. Thanks to energetic cinematography from Eric Treml and candid direction from the likes of Fred Savage and Pamela Romanowsky, the show's saccharine candy shell soon melts to reveal a richer emotional core." This series might be sweet, but it definitely won't leave you with a stomachache.

Feel Good

In the first few minutes of "Feel Good," we're introduced to Mae (Mae Martin), an aspiring stand-up comic with a sordid past. Just when you start thinking you have the show figured out, however, it takes off in a completely different direction. Mae's aspirations are still present, but the show's focus moves to the relationship between her and love interest George (Charlotte Ritchie). The glowing connection between the two grows rocky as they learn more about each other, but love conquers all ... right?

The uncertainty is part of the charm of "Feel Good." Watching Mae and George open up to each other is both hilarious and touching. Phil (Phil Burgers), George's roommate, brings further laughs to the table, and quickly evolves into a comforting presence. "It doesn't always feel good to watch it," wrote The AV Club, "but that's part of [the show's] magic. It tells a story full of discomfort and insecurity with self-assuredness, empathy, and charm." Mae and George's frenetic mannerisms are occasionally tough to watch, but they're deeply human. Therein lies the show's magic.

The Baby-Sitters Club

"The Baby-Sitters Club" begins with Kristy Thomas (Sophie Grace), a teenage girl looking to make money. The would-be entrepreneur soon realizes how desperate parents are for reliable childcare, and promptly establishes a baby-sitting agency. The club quickly gains Claudia (Momona Tamada), Stacey (Shay Rudolph), and Mary Anne (Malia Baker) as members. Together, they set out to garner a clientele — a process that comes complete with a landline phone yanked straight out of the early '90s (they find it in a thrift store). 

We might be skeptical about anyone still using a landline, but we're willing to let it slide. Just as that relic of the past embraces what made "The Baby-Sitter's Club" a best-selling book series in the first place, this show captures the franchise's timeless charm with its strong, character-centric writing. Each girl's individual journey is as compelling as it is unique, which creates, as Collider put it, "a richly detailed, nuanced portrait of what it's like to be a young woman."

Master of None

"Master of None" is a low-key series enlivened by the delightful observational humor of Aziz Ansari. His skill does most of the heavy lifting in this series, though it never feels lopsided — in fact, "Master of None" feels effortless. Early on, the show offers a quick synopsis of the life stories of two characters' fathers. A quick montage captures these patriarchs as they struggle through immigration and build a life from scratch. We then flash-forward to reveal their sons griping about the mundane as they mosey around the city. That skillful weaving of tone, time, and subject distinguishes "Master of None" as a uniquely impressive work. 

NPR summed things up well by hailing the series as "a potent comedy that often camouflages its depth with Ansari's quick wit and snappy patter." Given the awards the series has racked up, not to mention its 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it's clear they're not alone in this assessment. After you finish every episode, you'll be singing the show's praises as well.
