TOP TEN NETFLIX SERIES TO WATCH IN JULY 2020 | LIST-EM. Article Image by AStory - Netflix
We’ve arrived at the second half of 2020, and boy what a year this has been.
With ‘rona resurging on a few parts of the world, and quarantines still very much in place, we might as well keep watching Netflix on the safety of our own room.
(And, for those of you MVPs fighting at the frontlines of this pandemic, checking this list might give you some good stuff to watch and relax to for a bit after those long hours working)
This is based entirely off my tastes, but I'll do my utmost to provide a bit of everything, from dramas to action series.
So, buckle up, this is the Top Ten Best Netflix Series to Watch on July 2020 (the numbering isn’t a scale of “worst-to-best”, by the way).
10 AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER
ATLA is one of the best-animated series to ever come from this side of the globe, no discussion.
Yes, it already has been a month or so since it came to Netflix, but if you still haven't given it a chance, now should be the time.
With a simple yet engaging premise, interesting, well-written characters, and an extremely well-built world.
ATLA will catch you from episode 1.
Although its first season starts a bit on the weaker side, things heat up quickly and it will have you on the edge of your seat (figuratively) after a few episodes.
Definitely something worth watching (and re-watching!) any time.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past week, month…years, Dark has been a staple of what Netflix is capable of produce.
This German series deals with time travel, strained relationships, well-thought characters, and more, with a dark (duh) ambiance.
The final season came out a few days ago and was received extremely favorably by critics and the general audience alike.
So, if you don’t want to be left out of this cultural phenomenon, now is the time to actually binge-watch Dark (or not, perhaps you should take your time to process everything that happens in the series)
With the second season right around the corner, now it would be a good time to watch (or re-watch) this series if you haven’t done so already.
Created by the one and only Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance, anyone?), Umbrella Academy is a superhero show not quite like the rest.
Sure, it may be a tad too teenager-ish for most, but the dark comedy and interesting characters make it really worth it.
So, be sure to at least give it a try.

07 UNSOLVED MYSTERIES
A refresh to a well-known classic, Unsolved Mysteries is your standard true-crime docuseries.
You’ll find anything from murders to strange disappearances, perfect to scratch that itch of police dramas.
The mysteries are quite interesting and the characters are real people, so it's easy to bond with them, definitely something worth watching if you have burned most of your catalog.

06 AFTER LIFE
After Life is a dark comedy series made by no other than Ricky Gervais himself.
Based on the struggles of coming to terms with the loss of someone dear, a superb mix of drama and comedy is tied together by Ricky’s amazing performance.
I consider Ricky to be one of the best comedians alive right now, and After Life is the perfect proof of that.
The second season came out back in April, and the series as a whole has been favorably received by critics and audience alike, you should definitely give it a watch.
05 QUEEN SONO
A new take on the classic femme fatale character, Queen Sono is Netflix’s first South African series.
Starring the beautiful Pearl Thusi as the Queen Sono, a tier 1 spy, as we follow her adventures (and struggles).
Queen Sono is full of bombastic action scenes, plot twists, and trauma.
Sure, it's not the most complex series out there, but it's an entertaining spy thriller, nonetheless.
If you want to watch a modern, quick-paced African series, which showcases African politics mixed with action-packed scenes and a beautiful lead, this might be for you.
04 THE MIDNIGHT GOSPEL
From the mind of Pendleton Ward (Adventure Time perhaps rings a bell) comes this little gem, an adult animated series that mixes a myriad of topics with comedy.
It’s kinda hard to even classify The Midnight Gospel but the closest thing would be podcast-meets-Adult-Swim-cartoon; however you may classify it, it’s an experience like no other on Netflix.
The dialogues are deep and intelligent; the animation serves its purpose of propping the conversations, and the result is a mind-blowing experience that everyone should go through.
03 THE BABYSITTERS CLUB
Yet another adaptation of a well-beloved book series (or a remake of a 90s TV series, whatever) The Babysitters Club is a feel-good series about a group of five teenage girls that create a babysitting business, hence the name.
A more diverse cast and updated technology are the only differences this adaptation brings to the table.
So, fans of the books should be at ease, nothing important was modified.
Give it a watch if you want a cute series that heals your troubled heart.
I won’t lie to you, I didn’t expect either to get utterly engrossed at the tribulations of a cheer squad, yet here I am.
Cheer is your run-of-the-mill docuseries that follows a group of teens and the trials they face, the ups and downs of being the support of their team.
However, Director Greg Whiteley crafted a superb narrative with authentic storytelling, and you can’t help but cheer (pun very intended) for these cheerleaders.
Sure, it came out back in January, but it flew under most people’s radars thanks to its…niche premise, give it a watch, it’s worth it.
This is a rather unique zombie series set in historical Korea, following a prince trying to protect his kingdom from an otherworldly menace.
Perhaps you are already tired of anything that has to do with diseases, pandemics and such, but Kingdom is a breath of fresh air to the zombie genre.
Mainly because the zombies are the enemies and not just a backdrop or a convenient plot device when two human groups fight with each other (I’m looking at you, TWD).
It has two seasons, a nicely paced story, gore, and interesting characters, what’s not to love?
Give it a watch if you want some violent action and good swordplay.
Hope you liked my little list! I'm sure you were able to find at least something interesting to watch and remember,
Stay Safe, People
