A comprehensive list of shows/movies produced by Netflix so anyone looking for a new show to watch can know what's worth a shot.

News of upcoming shows welcome. Stand-up specials and documentaries were left out because there are soooooooo many of them. Feel free to make suggestions for anything not listed.

Adventures of Puss in Boots

Bloodline - tried watching this and didn't get into it. may try again.
BoJack Horseman - awesome show. I watched the whole series in a day or so and then realized my cousin is a producer.
Chef's Table - very well done.
Daredevil
Grace and Frankie
Hemlock Grove
House of Cards - obviously and awesome show.
Knights of Sidonia
Lilyhammer

Orange is the New Black - very good show. it's like Scrubs but in prison. kinda corny but entertaining.

Chef's Table - I loved Jiro Dreams of Sushi (same director I think) so I will watch this. I started it the other night and promptly fell asleep as I was exhausted (not to say the show is bad, but it's not going to keep you awake). Will try again soon

House of Cards - This has obviously been talked about to death, but I stopped watching after the first episode of the second season. To explain why would involve spoilers, so I'll just say I guess the story twists are not for me, no matter how well produced and acted the show is

Lilyhammer - Watched the first 2 episodes a while ago and enjoyed it a lot. It's campy, but not overly so. It's on my list once I get around to it again

Marco Polo - By far the best visuals on screen today. Really well done, good acting...story and dialogue leave a little to be desired but I'm definitely hooked on this show

Orange is the New Black - Another show that really doesn't need extra commentary, but I will just say this is probably my favorite all around Netflix original

Adventures of Puss in Boots
All Hail King Julien
Arrested Development* - Season 4 is weird, I didn't enjoy the character-centric episodes, but if you liked the first three seasons it's definitely worth the watch. I read somewhere that Hurwitz is re-editing Season 4 to be chronological instead of character centric, so I'd be interested to rewatch and see if that makes a difference.
Bloodline
BoJack Horseman - Hilarious. Will Arnett is great in this, and it's oddly serial for a cartoon.
Chef's Table
Daredevil - Plain Badass. Watch this immediately. The 'Street Level Heroes' initiative is off to a great start. Tonal feels a lot more like the recent Batman movies than anything else Marvel has done.
Grace and Frankie
Hemlock Grove - Interesting. A more melodramatic version of True Blood, and the first season at least feels a bit like a murder mystery.
House of Cards - Interesting concept, but political dramas are not my thing. Enjoyed watching Kevin Spacey enough to watch season 1, but never picked it back up.
Knights of Sidonia
Lilyhammer - Watched the first season, definitely entertaining. No real reason why I haven't watched further other than I straight up forgot about it.
Marco Polo
Orange is the New Black - If you watched and liked Weeds you'll enjoy this series too.
Problem Solverz*
Richie Rich
Star Wars: Clone Wars*
The Killing*
Trailer Park Boys*
Turbo FAST
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt - If you liked 30 Rock (or Tina Fey productions in general) you'll also enjoy this. Blew through this in a weekend with the girlfriend, the theme song is catchy as hell.

You guys are forgetting all of the great british shows (some of which are better than the US shows offered)

Peaky Blinders
The Fall

Both worth watching

Peaky Blinders is one of my top two favorite things on TV right now BUT...isn't this originally BBC created?

Netflix may called it a "Netflix Original", but I wouldn't if they didn't have anything to do with creating it

I started Grace and Frankie, I'm a few episodes into it. I love all of the main cast members (which is why I wanted to see it int he first place) but it has kind of been hit and miss so far. The two men are great on screen as friends but there is no chemistry in their relationship.

The #1 reason to watch the show is Lily Tomlin. Anytime she is alone on screen it is pure comedic gold and makes all of the awkward moments worth getting through. I also thoroughly enjoy the scenes involving their kids, it really is a fantastic ensemble cast.

These aren't every going to leave Netflix, correct? I can't imagine they would, since they are originals. I just didn't know if there was every a potential for them having a shelf-life.

I plan on getting around to:

Peaky Blinders
Chef's Table
Daredevil
Bloodline

And that's pretty much it for now. What about Luther? Was that a Netflix Original? Or did it just seem like they advertised it as one. I definitely want to see that one as well.

^^ Luther is like Peaky Blinders, a BBC production, but one that Netflix might have exclusive rights to.

Bloodline is interesting.

I'm on episode 5 but it has taken me about 2 weeks to get that far because I can only watch 20-30 minutes at a time. It is pretty slow in the first 4 episodes but seems to be picking up a bit.

Scrotal Recall - Kinda funny. Episodic series about a dude that discovers he has an STD and has to notify his previous partners. Each episode is dedicated to one of the women, with an ongoing storyline to tie them together. Entertaining time killer, basically.

Finished Grace and Frankie. It was worth sitting through but probably won't watch it again anytime soon. Doubt there will be a second season.

Confirmed Upcoming Productions
Between (2015)
Sense8 (2015)
Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp (2015)
Narcos (2015)
F Is for Family (2015)
Longmire (season 4; 2015)
A.K.A. Jessica Jones (2015)
Love (2016)
Flaked (2016)
The Get Down (2016)
The OA (2016)
With Bob and David (2016)
Montauk (2016)

I am a huge fan of Wet Hot American Summer and I am intrigued by the concept of a prequel miniseries, but there's a lot of room for letdown.

Netflix will be producing a mini-series adaptation of "A Series of Unfortunate Events." Rumor is Neil Patrick Harris will be playing Count Olaf. I am very happy about this, and hoping it will redeem the mediocre film from 12 years ago with Jim Carrey.

So lets take Daredevil.

This season you have 13 episodes to get into the minutia between him and all the secondary characters. Some of the interaction between him and Punisher is the most interesting dialogue I've ever seen. It was literally 20 solid minutes of awesome.

I don't think you can take the same situations, story, or conflict and make it as compelling in movie format.

Therefor, if you have a really good set of characters and stories, why would you want to take them to the big screen when you can get so much more done creatively on Netflix or similar entertainment vehicles.

Series of Unfortunate Events was VERY well done. I watched through Fuller House for nostalgia's sake but didn't love it. Stranger Things is on my to-do list.

Just finished The OA. It was alright not quite as great as expectations based on reviews and a little on the strange side.

So Will Smith has a direct-to-Netflix movie coming out. This seems like a pretty big fall for Smith, but his career has been trending down in recent years.

I wont argue that Smith has been going down hill, but I would attribute this just as much to how far Netflix is rising. The movie also stars Joel Edgerton Noomi Rapace, and is directed by David Ayer, it's a legitimate movie, not like it's not like it's a SyFy original or anything. A Netflix movie just won best documentary short Oscar.
