Netflix Canada has an amazing movie collection – better than American Netflix in my opinion. However, the Canadian Netflix TV show selection can be a bit lacking. Although we do not get some of the great shows our American counterparts do we still have some great shows to binge watch.

Best of Netflix Canada – TV Show Edition
The show is number one for a reason. It is quite possibly my favourite show of all time. It is a cowboy/sci fi blend which shouldn’t really work but does. Firefly got cancelled early so there is only one season. Perfect for binge watching if you are snowed in or not feeling well.
Psych is a very funny show about a guy who has daddy issues who pretends to be a psychic to help out his local law enforcement department solve crimes. He runs around with his neurotic best friend and hilarity ensues. Couple them with a straight laced cop and a love interest and you have the perfect comedy recipe.
Gilmore Girls is a wonderful story of a single mother and her daughter. They live in a small town and their community will make you want to live there. They are coffee addicted and are trying to find their own ways. A great coming of age show.
Orange is the New Black
Orange is the New Black is a Netflix Original show which means it’s only available on Netflix. Honestly is you are thinking of getting Netflix but haven’t, try it our free for a month just to watch this show. Set in a women’s prison the characters are over the top and you won’t be able to get enough. This show is NOT safe for kids.
My husband watches Futurama, Family Guy and American Dad on repeat. I honestly believe I have seen every episode (or at least parts of every episode) three times minimum. Futurama is by far my favourite. If you like The Simpsons you will love Futurama (because it’s better).
Dollhouse was created by the same person as Firefly (Joss Whedon). It has the same futuristic undertones but a completely different story line. I am not exactly sure how to describe Dollhouse in a few sentences so here is what Wikipedia has to say – “The show revolves around a corporation running numerous underground establishments (known as “Dollhouses”) around the globe which program individuals referred to as Actives (or Dolls) with temporary personalities and skills. Wealthy clients hire Actives from Dollhouses at great expense for various purposes.”
There are some other great TV shows on Netflix Canada. Also worth checking out are:
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel
- Arrested Development
- Friends – We wrote an entire post on the awesomeness of Friends – Top 10 Friends Episodes for Moms.
- House, MD
- Raising Hope
- My Name is Earl
Any that I missed? I am looking for a new show to binge watch.
