8 Netflix shows with a perfect Rotten Tomatoes score you need to watch-Luke Matthews and Rebecca Sayce-Entertainment – Metro

These picks are Rotten Tomatoes-approved (Picture: Ed Miller/Netflix)

The days of gambling on a Netflix series from reading a two-line synopsis are fast fading.

As the streaming giant’s library of content grows ever bigger, we rely on the recommendations of others more than ever as a guiding light.

And who better to listen to than the expert critics at Rotten Tomatoes? The review site assigns a percentage score to every show, and a surprising number have achieved a perfect 100%.

Baby Reindeer became the latest show to snatch the coveted title after taking the streaming giant by storm, telling the harrowing true story of lead star Richard Gadd’s experience with stalking.

But suppose that’s not enough to convince you. In that case, the handful we’ve picked out have also scored very highly with the audience, placing them in the exclusive category of being universally acclaimed by professionals and professional binge-watchers. Let’s get into it.


Explore the dark underground of London with this crime drama (Picture: BBC)

The intense crime drama originally aired on the BBC before its release on Netflix in 2020 took it to a global audience.

It follows Tokyo detective Kenzo Mori as he attempts to track down his brother, who is assumed dead after murdering the nephew of a member of the yakuza. The search leads Kenzo deeper and deeper into London’s dark underworld.

Incredibly, despite scoring 100% with Rotten Tomatoes critics and 88% with the audience, it was cancelled after just one extremely popular series

Baby Reindeer

The latest addition to the list, Baby Reindeer sees a struggling comedian become the victim of a vulnerable woman’s stalking obsession, forcing him to face both the trauma that it brings and the traumas he had tried to leave behind.

It’s written and performed by Richard Gadd, who reenacts and lays bare the dark events that really happened to him.

In its first four days on the platform, more than 10million hours were consumed.

The true crime documentary series explores the experiences of pupils at the Academy at Ivy Ridge – a US disciplinary school marketed as a boarding school.

They reflect on the allegedly abusive conditions they were forced to endure, and the lasting trauma that came with it.

The series was released last month and is highly rated by the audience, who scored it at 90%.

Jean Bastière has an idyllic life with his with Julie, their two children, and a thriving business cleaning crime scenes.

But it all comes crashing down when his criminal brother, Martin, suddenly re-enters his life and asks for help to cover up a murder.

Jean is plunged into a life of crime and puts his own future at risk in a bid to protect his family.

House of Ninjas

A bizarre controversy surrounded this hit Netflix series (Picture: Netflix)

A family of ninjas, known as shinobi, had left their life behind. But a looming threat forces them to take action once again.

It was released in February to rave reviews, despite one major criticism. Fans hit out at the music that accompanies the show, stating it doesn’t fit with the narrative and ‘almost ruined the whole series’.

The good news is, it wasn’t enough to stop anyone bingeing it all (they still scored it 89%) – and now we’re intrigued as to just how bad the soundtrack can really be…

Cunk on Earth

A real change of pace now, more suited for those looking for a laugh.

Fictional documentary maker Philomena Cunk attempts to tell some of the most important stories of our planet’s history, interviewing some experts along the way who try to deal with some truly bizarre questions while keeping a straight face for the cameras.

The Confession Killer

Among Netflix’s many true crime documentaries, this one is beyond shocking (Picture: Netflix)

The Confession Killer offers a true crime series with a real twist.

While we’re usually left hooked by the hunt for a notorious murderer, this one highlights the case of Henry Lee Lucas, who was more than willing to confess to more than 200 murders in the US – only for it to turn out to be lies. But why did he do it?

The Letdown

And finally, some comic relief (Picture: DANIEL.ASHER.SMITH)

And finally, another lighter entry to get us away from all the crime and murder.

The Letdown depicts the ups and downs of being a new parent with hilarious accuracy, following Audrey as she joins a support group to navigate motherhood.

It’s one of the highest-rated shows on the platform, not only being awarded 100% by critics but also 94% by the audience at home across the two series.
