In the last ten years, the streaming service industry has boomed. Going from being dominated by Netflix alone, the industry is now rife with content production giants with their own streaming services such as Disney+, Amazon Prime, Apple TV, HBOmax, and Paramount+. While Netflix is still an unconquered beast in the realm of streaming it has been appropriately challenged by Amazon Prime and Disney+. However, Netflix has managed to maintain its dominance over the industry. Netflix has been popping our content every month of the year without fail. As a result of this, the streaming service’s media content library has expanded steadily. Navigating this labyrinth cannot be easy. As the year is wrapping up, here is a look at the highest rated Netflix content.
- Dota’s Dragon (7.9)
Because of the sheer volume of content accessible on Netflix, they might sometimes go unnoticed, but the streaming service offers an astounding number of high-quality anime shows. Dota: Dragon’s Blood, based on the Dota 2 video game from 2013, was released in 2021. The fantasy drama is set in a magical realm and follows a knight who protects those around him by slaying dragons. The animation style and voice acting garnered great reviews, and while knowledge of the original material isn’t essential, a little more world-building would’ve been nice.
- The Babysitters’ Club, Season 2 (8.0)
The Baby-Sitters Club has a strong 7.4 rating on IMDb as a whole, but when averaging out the episodes from season 2, one can see that the quality has increased slightly. The episode got immediate accolades for being an accurate adaptation of the same-named children’s book series.
- Never Have I Ever, Season 2 (8.0)
One can bet that if Mindy Kaling is behind a show, it will be witty, hilarious, and include some nuanced female characters. She’s doing it on HBO Max right now with The Sex Lives of College Girls, and she’s done it before on Netflix with Never Have I Ever.
- Squid Game (8.0)
Nothing this year could beat Squid Game on Netflix in terms of popularity, except Spider-Man- No Way Home. The Korean series became an international sensation, with practically everyone talking about it and a slew of online reaction videos, particularly for the sad episode “Gganbu” (9.3).
- The Witcher, Season 2 (8.4)
Many people talked about The Witcher when it first came out on Netflix. The big-budget fantasy series starring Henry Cavill felt like it had the potential to be the next Game of Thrones-style worldwide blockbuster. It didn’t quite achieve it, but it was still a huge hit.
- Sex Education, Season 3 (8.5)
Season 3 of Sex Education was released after an almost two-year wait, and it did not disappoint. While the fans were hoping to see Otis and Maeve finally get together, it was Otis’ romance with Ruby that took centre stage. Seeing her character develop was a highlight of the first half of the season.
- Arcane (9.2)
Almost no one could have imagined that an animated series based on the League of Legends video game would be Netflix’s finest programme of the year. Thankfully, viewers don’t need to be familiar with the games’ backstory to fully immerse themselves in Arcane, as the emotional basis of the show was the bond between two sisters. The series boasts excellent action, creative animation techniques, and a fantastic voice cast that includes Hailee Steinfeld, Ella Purnell, Katie Leng, Kevin Alejandro, and more.
