Top 10 Netflix Shows of 2018

We’ve had a lot of great shows this year and some of the best have never even aired on cable television. I’m talking about streaming and while Hulu and Amazon Prime have given us some quality tv series, I think we need to take a moment to acknowledge Netflix. Whatever we may feel about Netflix at the moment, they clearly are one of the best when it comes to their shows. The streaming site is a place you can rewatch Friends a thousand times and catch up on your favorite CW series, but it’s their original content that needs praise.

‘Altered Carbon’ Renewed For a Second Season; Casts Antony Mackie as Lead

New season. New sleeve. Altered Carbon’s official twitter sent out today, announcing the renewal for a second season. The sci-fi show based on the book by Richard Morgan will return to Netflix with eight episodes, instead of the ten it had in season one. Premiering on February 2, 2018, this wildly imaginative show gauged mixed reactions, though; if you ask me, is definitely one of my favorites on the online streaming service. Primarily played by Joel Kinnaman, the show centers around Takeshi Kovacs as he awakes 250 years after originally being sentenced to a lifetime of being essentially decommissioned. We
