Remember how awkward "the talk" was with your parents? Otis sure does. Netflix

If you can believe it, 2019 is already half over and what a year it’s been — for Netflix originals, that is. In just a few short months, the streaming service rolled out so many different shows that instantly shot to the top of our “must watch list” while earning a coveted place in our queue for repeat viewing. Whether you like dark superhero shows, supernatural thrillers, real-life marvels, or Natasha Lyonne’s magnificent head of hair, Netflix has already introduced something for everyone this year.
