Breaking Bad,” shared one. “The greatest tv series of all time. Though it wasn't a Netflix original, I'd say this was one of the first shows that helped usher us into the streaming era. Truly iconic, and Bryan Cranston is one of the greatest actors of all time..” 

2. The Good Place

Many people agreed with, The Good Place. “It is one of those shows that gets more interesting (in new ways) each time you watch it, and I don't think that can be said for many other shows! Plus, it's an absolute masterclass in casting, makes intellectual topics fun, and has unique characters — no wonder it's my favorite.”

3. Futurama

Futurama came in at number three on the list. However, one person noted, “We skip the dog episode, though.” “I completely agree,” said another. “As this is probably my most rewatchable show, there were many memorable first-time moments. The Bee episode is up there for me.”

4. M*A*S*H


“I'm dating myself here, but M*A*S*H,” shared another. “Very, very funny. It's about the Korean war, but the good thing is that you don't have to know or even understand anything about history to laugh your bum off. It has its touching moments too.

5. Community

Community. I'd give anything to see ‘Remedial Chaos Theory' or ‘Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking' for the first time again,” one confessed. While others agreed, one added, “You discover new things on the 30th rewatch.”

6. Fleabag

Several people voted for the show, Fleabag. “Oh man, I'm feeling wistful just imagining seeing it again for the first time.” Another added, “I can't stress how much I would recommend this show even if you don't see why on the first episode, everyone should watch it. I promise by the end. You'll be glad you did. It's only two very short seasons. I came here looking specifically for this show.”

7. The X-Files

“I started watching The X-Files when I was eight and rewatched the entire series when I was 28,” answered another. “It was such an enriching experience. All of the episodes I didn't get when I was a kid hit deep 20 years later. The truth is out there, my friends.”

8. Fringe

One user confessed, “I didn't expect this answer so high up. Fringe is so underrated! Hate the last season, but I wish I could experience the second season for the first time again.” A second added, “Watched it several times over. Never disappoints.”

9. Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks. Every watch-through is a wild ride. But nothing compares to that first watch,” one suggested. Another said, “It's an intense fever dream of a show and probably a bit quirky for some, but for my money, it's the most absorbing series of all time. 

I'm still obsessed with it years later. For those new to the show, start with seasons one and two. Then watch the movie Fire Walk With Me and then season three, which takes place 25 years later.”

Someone volunteered, “Firefly. The best show I never want to see a remake of” shared one. “I honestly don't want to go through the heartbreak of learning that it was canceled all over again. It's taken me a lot of time to heal from that,” confessed another. 

12. True Detective Season 1

14. Lost

One person shouted, “Definitely LOST. I'm wondering how it would be to binge the series, but there was something about the year wait to find out what was in the hatch.” A second added, “I love Lost! You can only recreate the magic of watching it for the first time by introducing it to someone who's never seen it and watching it with them!”
