Archer is the perfect example of giving its viewers more and more reasons to stick to it and watch for more. On its first season, its absurdity happened inside the spy agency, and the twists get reinvented in every season.

The characters are all versatile, wherever place or situation they may be, they will always be the “motley crew” who knows they got each other’s back. Just like what we have loved among the characters in Rick and Morty, one of the joys of watching this show is how the characters interact with each other. You will get to appreciate it more as another episode or season unfolds.

Since we love Sci-Fi related series, Stranger Things should never be a stranger in this list. This series tells a story about the occurrence of supernatural events in the town of Indiana.

Final Space is certainly a grower. At first, I found that you are somewhat irritated by the main character. He takes some getting used to (and I'm not sure you really ever do).

That said, I completely recommend Final Space. It has a fantastic overall story line that is fast moving and is supported by great secondary characters. It is a TV show that when it comes to the end of season one certainly leaves you wanting more. An overall fantastic anime show - easily one of the best on Netflix - with great overall anime finishes too.
