What to watch on Netflix Australia


If you've ever watched a Netflix show and found yourself thinking, "man, this would be perfect if it was even more Australian," then you've come to the right place. Here's a list of our favorite Netflix shows for Australians:


You might not be familiar with the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW), but this Netflix original comedy-drama series brings back a time when its stars were household names. Get ready to fall down the rabbit hole and experience what it was like in the 1980s as a struggling actress who gets cast in a new wrestling show.

Black Mirror

Black Mirror is an anthology series that examines modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies. Each episode explores a different story; some are funny and some are downright scary. The show has been renewed for season 5, so now’s your chance to get in on the ground floor!

Stranger Things

Stranger Things is a science fiction horror web television series created, written, and directed by The Duffer Brothers, as well as co-written by Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen. The Duffer Brothers developed the series as homage to pop culture of the 1980s. It stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard (who plays Mike Wheeler), Millie Bobby Brown (who plays Eleven) and Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson).

It's set in the fictional town of Hawkins Indiana in 1983 where a young boy vanishes into thin air. His mother Joyce is determined to find her son using any means possible to find him; but she doesn't know that he's been taken by something otherworldly.

In October 2016 Netflix released all eight episodes simultaneously worldwide for online viewing on their service Netflix Australia.

Bojack Horseman

The show is about a washed-up actor who happens to be a horse. It's funny, but it's also deeply sad — and sometimes the humor can come from the fact that you're watching a cartoon horse cry over his career and personal life.

The show has been praised for its realistic portrayal of depression, as well as its exploration of what it means to be an actor in Hollywood.

Master of None

Master of None is a comedy-drama series created by Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang. The show follows Dev Shah, a 30-year-old actor from New York who has trouble finding love but can't stop trying.

In the show, Aziz plays Dev Shah, while Alan plays Brian Cheng. Both of them are co-writers on the series and they also directed several episodes. In real life, these characters are played by Aziz's parents in the show because they were born in Bangladesh but moved to America when he was young. His brother also plays himself in one episode!
