There are plenty of shows available on Netflix and it gets really hard for people to figure out which one they should watch as all of them claim to be the best of the lot. But there are some shows which must be watched not because they are popular or famous, but because of the qualities they possess. Qualities such as the storyline, the plot, the characterization and the screenplay makes those shows watchable. Let’s take a look at some highly underrated shows on Netflix which are worth a watch.
- The Last Kingdom – The Last Kingdom season 5 is scheduled to release by next year and it has found its place on our list because of the fact that despite being a cult show, it never truly got the recognition that it deserved. The show is about the politics and events that took place in Britain in the late 800s. The show has truly captured the essence of the era and still craves recognition from the masses.
- Black lightning – Black Lightning season 4 concluded the show and brought the adventures of a retired superhero to an end. The show about an African-American superhero named Jefferson Pierce was not really talked about by the masses. Despite the fact that there are so many superhero fanatics around the globe, the show hardly made it to the top 10 Netflix series for the month when its last season aired.
- Marco Polo – The show was made on a big budget but went unnoticed upon its release, however, some people did observe the show’s presence and found it to be really interesting. What made the show worth a watch was the characterization of Marco Polo when he was hanging around with the Mongols. The best part about the show is that it got all the tiny details right of the historical era and presented a great package of acting, visualization and music to the viewers.
- The Umbrella Academy – The show did gain some recognition upon its release but the fame lasted for a short while as the competition in the superhero market has become really high. The show about an almost dysfunctional superhero team was talk of the town for a while and after a few memes, it lost its glory.
- Wentworth – Fans of realistic crime dramas would find this underrated Australian show truly delightful as it follows the lives of women prisoners who have done terrible things for real and keep doing those things in the prison as well.
Sadly, not a lot of people are aware of such shows and that is why they are categorized as underrated. But we hope that their status gets changed from underrated to popular when you go and watch them. Also, recommend these shows to your friends so that these shows can get the audience they deserve. Another benefit of doing so would be that your friends will be watching some really interesting shows whose name they had probably never heard before.
