Great Netflix Shows To Watch Alone

Netflix has all the shows that you will want to watch alone. Today, in this topic, let’s take a look at top 7 great Netflix shows to watch alone!

Television viewing may be a great experience, especially when you are watching your favorite shows with your relatives. But, there are someday, all you want is to have a home viewing solo night with your fit series. So, in that case, we are here to present you with a list of great Netflix shows to watch alone.

Sex Education

In this list of great Netflix shows to watch aloneSex Education is a decidedly raunchy and thoroughly adorable coming-of-age dramedy.

Sex Education is so much more than its title suggests, there are raunchy scenes throughout but this show focuses more on how sex affects teenagers socially psychologically. It’s never judgemental about anyone’s sexuality or desires and instead insists upon teaching people that it’s okay to feel the way you do and it’s okay to be confused and teaches us how to deal with those feelings.

The End of the F***ing World

Based on the award-winning comic book series by Charles Forsman, “The End of the F…ing World” is an option you can’t overlook for a perfect solo night. The story sees two messed-up teenagers — James is one, Alyssa (Jessica Barden of Penny Dreadful) is the other — whose frustrating home lives bond them together. They start to maybe fall in love, but first, they decide to take a road trip to escape their awful parental situations.

The title tells us pretty clearly that this show won’t have a happy ending. But even in its tragic moments, there are still glimmers of loveliness in The End of the F***ing World. You just have to be patient and watch closely… alone, to fully see them.

The Crown

Do you want to watch a captivating drama about British royalty with your half-in-the-bag brother asking questions like “Which ones are the Windsors” and “Does the queen outrank the prime minister?” Of course not. “The Crown” is to be savored in solitude.

The Crown charts the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the start of her reign up until the present day. Well, it will. This Netflix Original kicks off shortly before her Coronation, and up to its current season’s end, which finds her at an interesting precipice in her role as sovereign and as wife and mother. The series weds top-notch drama with an array of great performances, led by Claire Foy – and later Olivia Colman – as the young monarch. It sheds light on unseen parts of the Queen’s duties, and the troubled dynamic of juggling a public and private life, starting with her marriage to Philip, and dealing with her father, George.

Black Mirror

An anthology series for Netflix shows to watch alone; each episode serves as a standalone story that investigates a particular piece of tech and how they could lead to mankind’s downfall. For the most part, Charlie Brooker’s dystopian sci-fi show is set just a few years into the future, a place where our every technological whim is accounted for. The decision to set it so close to our own time has made it one of the most-talked-about shows in years.

While it’s often described as sci-fi, Black Mirror packs in elements from every genre imaginable. Depending on the story, a particular episode may be romantic, action-packed, or creepy. One thing they all have in common, though, is that they’re all downright terrifying.

Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad remains one of the best TV shows on Netflix to watch if you’re home alone in my favorite list. The killer premise of a chemistry teacher-turned-meth dealer spins out of control across five seasons, as the teacher in question, Walter White, slowly transforms from nice guy to antihero. All the while he hides his illegal shenanigans from his family, making for a slow bubbling tension throughout the entire series.

Just when you think the stakes can’t get raised any higher, Mr. White steps up his game, taking his quest to ever-crazy heights of excess. His quietly simmering rage is spectacular to watch thanks to a nuanced turn from Bryan Cranston, who manages to make White an incredibly compelling character.

Stranger Things

The binge-watch series of the last few years. The Duffer brothers cobbled together a patchwork of ’80s references then siphoned all of that into a killer plot about government experiments on members of a small town in Indiana. Things come to a head when a young lad, Will Byers, goes missing, causing his mother Joyce (Winona Ryder), the sheriff (David Harbour), and Will’s friends to consider the strangest possibility – that there’s a parallel world to ours replete with horrific monsters and demons simply itching to get at you.

The whole cast is terrific (this writer personally was very pleased to see Winona Ryder back in the thick of it). However, it’s the young leads who steal the show. Scurrying around Hawkins on their bikes in the dead of night and hunkering down in basements trying to find their missing pal, they will melt your hearts, especially Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven.

Dark

Let’s move up to the end flick of the list of Netflix shows to watch alone. Seeing as you’ve binged the hell out of Stranger Things multiple times, you’re gonna need something similar to tide you over until more episodes arrive. Enter Dark. From the outset, this German-language Netflix original makes no bones about its intentions: to be creepy, eerie, and as Lynchian as possible. And that’s not just because it’s odd, but, because like a certain David Lynch created TV show, this delves into the rotten underbelly of seemingly perfect small-town life. In this case, it’s the tale of two missing children that stirs up trouble for a mysterious community.

You’re unlikely to see anything else quite like it. Sure, it may share ideas with some popular shows (there’s missing children, time travel, and other supernatural oddities) but Dark packs a lot of unique pieces into its puzzle.
