Some of the series on this list are dramas, others are comedies, and some are more action-packed, but they are all worthy of some Netflix binging.

Loosely based on the comic book of the same name, iZombie is one of the most original shows from CW. The story offers as much adventure-comedy as it does drama, and both critics and fans alike love the show. The Washington Post describes why this is one of the most refreshing series on Netflix.
“There’s never been a series quite like this one: a self-mocking mash-up of zombie thriller, detective show and single-girl-in-the-city comedy. When Olivia eats a murder victim’s brain, she absorbs the person’s memories and has visions that lead to the killer, making her a great sidekick for dashing Detective Babineaux. And like TV’s iconic singleton Mary Richards, she’s trying to see if she can make it after all — or in this case, find “a reason for being not alive.'”
