I’ll be honest – I watch a lot of Netflix. I am a proud binge watcher. However, I often run into the problem of spending all of my allotted time for watching something just searching through the crazy amount of (not all good) options. So next time you find yourself facing this problem, maybe you’ll feel like taking advantage of the leg work I have done, and choose something from this list that you haven’t seen.

Between Netflix and XFinity, I watch mostly TV. I like TV shows because they require less of an immediate time commitment but last longer in the long run. But there are also plenty of movies and documentaries worth watching. Here is a list of 10 TV Shows, Movies, and Documentaries that can be found on Netflix Instant Watch (in no particular order), that I think are worth a watch.
