You’ve been to the Upside Down with the Stranger Things gang, faced all the prison cliques of Orange Is The New Black, and questioned your relationship with technology thanks to Black Mirror.
What next? Your Netflix queue has tons more room. There’s so much content coming out on the streaming giant every year, it’s hard to know what’s worth watching, and we often miss out on some really excellent ones. Here are 10 hidden gems on Netflix we love that you should totally add to your list.
What it’s about: In a poverty-stricken future, everyone at the age of 20 can apply for “The Process,” seeking to be the top 3% who would get the chance to live in the affluent paradise known as the “Offshore,” while the unsuccessful remain in the under-developed “Inland.” We follow a group of young promising candidates in “The Process,” who have to work together to survive the brutal challenges even though some have very different motivations.
Why you should watch: More than another Hunger Games, this Brazilian sci-fi dystopia is a thrilling and very human story that keeps you at the edge of your seat. As the series in filmed entirely in Brazilian Portuguese, you need to rely on subtitles, but the minor inconvenience is totally worth the refreshing non-Western perspective to dystopian storytelling.
Seasons One and Two are currently available on Netflix, while the show will return for Season Three in 2019.
