“Making A Murderer” -- the Netflix crime drama about the real-life case of Steven Avery -- is one of the hottest thing on TV... except it’s not really on TV. It’s on Netflix. And lucky for cord cutters everywhere, it’s not the only totally binge-worthy series you can now stream there.

31. "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"
Before there was “Making A Murderer,” there was “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” The tale of a young woman rescued from a doomsday cult in Indiana, who goes from 15 years of captivity to trying to make a life for herself in New York City, this Netflix original comedy had social media buzzing with laugher in 2015. #PinotNoir
If you didn’t live in England from 2007-2013, you might have missed the controversial teen drama, “Skins.” Now, however, the show’s full seven seasons are available on Netflix.

“Daredevil” -- the story of a young lawyer, blinded as a boy, who now uses his heightened senses to fight crime -- is yet another of 2015’s buzziest TV shows.

“Luther,” the popular U.K. crime drama starring Idris Elba, has been called one of the grittiest detective series of all time. So, if you liked “True Detective” and “The Wire,” this should probably be the next notch on your queue.

24. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"
Nothing to see here. Just a high school student hunting the undead. Totally normal.

23. "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"
Uncomfortable, immature and hilarious, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” follows four narcissistic friends as they run a bar in Philadelphia. All ten seasons are currently streaming on Netflix.
22. "Jessica Jones"
Lest you think “Daredevil” was Netflix’s only soiree into the Marvel Cinematic Universe... or their only experiment with a hero in Hell’s Kitchen... “Jessica Jones” began streaming in November 2015. And so far, critics and audiences alike seem to be loving Krysten Ritter’s former superhero turned private eye.
On TV, medical dramas are often a dime a dozen, but “Scrubs” broke the mold. A mix of slapstick comedy, voiceover narration and surreal daydreams, this series enjoyed nine seasons on primetime. Now, all of them are streaming on Netflix.

19. "New Girl"
A new generation’s answer to “Friends,” “New Girl” is as quirky as it is heartfelt. The characters -- from Jess, a dorky teacher played by Zooey Deschanel, to Schmidt, a narcissistic, formerly obese ladies man -- are at once comically unique and weirdly familiar. Check out any of the four seasons currently streaming on Netflix, and you just might end up wishing you lived in their apartment too.
When “Dexter” hit the airwaves in 2006, it was completely groundbreaking; a drama that made viewers sympathize with a serial killer. Michael C. Hall’s mild-mannered Dexter is a blood-splatter analyst for the Miami police by day, and a bloodthirsty vigilante by night. This series is a definite must see, and its full eight season run is currently streaming on Netflix.
17. "Friday Night Lights"

This isn’t your grandpa’s Sherlock Holmes.

14. "Parks and Recreation"
In “Parks and Rec,” SNL alum Amy Poehler plays a perky, ambitious mid-level employee in a rural Parks and Recreation department. She’s full of energy and ideas, but the bureaucratic system isn’t set up for those sorts of things and hilarity ensues. The show’s passionate fan base was crushed when the series was cancelled in 2015. So, it’s a good thing six of the seven seasons are currently streaming on Netflix.

Check out the first season on Netflix, before your friends discover you haven’t seen it yet.

This self-proclaimed “love letter to the supernatural classics of the ‘80s” is America’s newest binge-watching obsession. Its child stars are adorable. Its references to beloved films, like “E.T.” and “The Goonies,” are plentiful. And its plot is edge-of-your-seat good.
