Netflix doesn’t only create it’s own shows, they have picked up some pretty amazing shows other networks wanted to bin. Why on earth those networks wanted to chuck these we just don’t know, some say the audiences are too small to justify production bills, some say other things we find equally dumb. Thankfully we have Netflix to pick up the slack and sometimes improve on things like only Netflix can. Here are the top 4 Netflix continuations.
Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (85% Average Tomatometer but loved by 95% of Audiences)
Based on the novel series of the same name by Douglas Adams (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy), comes the television adaptation co-produced and distributed by BBC America and Netflix. The show centers around Dirk, an eccentric, who claims to be a “holistic” detective investigating the obscure cases “fate” brings his way, through the inter-connectivity of all things by using unlikely sources and random clues to solve them. The show is absurd, bizarre and only for you if you can follow ridiculously complicated story lines. Unfortunately this one has been cancelled which sparked outrage from the shows fans with an online petition doing the rounds that has well over 100,000 signatures (which we have signed).
EL CHAPO (No Tomatometer available but liked by 82% of Audiences)
Brought to you by Netflix and Univision, this American crime series explores the life story of one of the world’s most notorious criminals, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, over a span of three decades — from 1985 when he was a low-level member of the Guadalajara Cartel, his rise to power as head of the Sinaloa Carte, and his ultimate downfall.
Arrested Development (75% Average Tomatometer but loved by 89% of Audiences)
A young man leads his oddball family and their real-estate-development business following a securities-fraud fiasco that put the father in jail. This is an arrestingly sophisticated and sardonic sitcom, with deliciously deadpan narration and stylish flashbacks, about mostly self-absorbed characters at odds with one another and the world at large.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (95% Average Tomatometer but loved by 89% of Audiences)
Yoda, Anakin and the Jedi Knights fight in the Clone Wars, taking them to many new planets and introducing new players. The series spans the time between ‘Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones’ and ‘Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
