This list is continually updated to reflect recent Netflix availability as TV shows are frequently added and removed.

If you just finished a good series and you need a new one to fill the void, Netflix is the place to go. Nothing beats a weekend-long marathon with no commercials, so without further ado, we give you our tightly-curated list of the best Netflix Instant TV shows.
Note: For a complete list of everything coming to Netflix, as well as what’s going away, take a look at our comprehensive monthly breakdown.
New for November 2015
Created by and starring comedian Aziz Ansari, Netflix’s Master of None concerns the everyday life of Dev, a 30-year-old actor who attempts to navigate the twists and turns of adulthood while making a living for himself in New York City. Reportedly based somewhat loosely on Ansari’s own life, the show even features the former Parks and Recreation actor’s real life mother and father as Dev’s parents in the show. Even if you haven’t dabbled in Ansari’s prior work (you should; he’s absolutely hilarious) Master of None is sure to please with its witty dialogue, multidimensional cast of characters, and relatable storylines. It appears Netflix has struck gold, once again.
With the massive success of Daredevil’s first season already in the books for Netflix, Big Red decided to tap into yet another Marvel character with Marvel’s Jessica Jones. Breaking Bad alum Krysten Ritter hops into the virtual shoes of the titular Jessica Jones, a semi-troubled young woman who possesses a particularly enhanced set of powers which make her a menace to criminals. Alongside Ritter are David Tennant as the mysterious and evil Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and Carrie Ann Moss as a hard-nosed lawyer named Jeri Hogarth. Not just for comic book fans, Marvel’s Jessica Jones is a wild good time.
Bob Odenkirk and David Cross team up yet again for the Netflix-exclusive sketch comedy show, With Bob and David. Much like their HBO series Mr. Show with Bob and David, the show plans to feature the over-the-top, yet wildly hilarious, comedy stylings of the show’s billed duo who also serve as the show’s creators and writers. Though Odenkirk has made it clear this pseudo-reboot won’t feature a similar structure as Mr. Show, Netflix’s latest comedy should be heavy on the kind of outrageous spoofs and hilarious writing fans of David Cross and Bob Odenkirk have come to expect.
