Best TV Shows to Watch on Netflix Philippines

We've all encountered that annoying incident wherein you've watch all the episodes of your favourite TV series and you just find yourself staring at the credits of that last episode thinking "what now?". Let's admit it, Netflix is amazing, but realising how late new episodes are released, and how limited the shows are is really annoying.

Compared to Netflix in the USA, the latest episodes are added about a day after they're released, whereas the series needs to complete first and about a few more months of waiting before they are released here in the Philippines. According to Finder, Netflix USA has over 14,000 titles compared to Netflix Philippines with only 681 as of January 2016 (Netflix Philippines vs Netflix US, 2017), and only 7% of Netflix US titles are available here in the Philippines. With that, it can be quite hard to look for TV shows to watch, especially if you search online on suggestions and find out that the shows you're interested in watching aren't available on our Netflix. And so, I've gathered a few of my favorite shows (and movies) that are available in Netflix Philippines for you to check out.

  1. I've been watching random Korean shows on netflix lately. I'll also try to some those that are on your list :D

    1. Yes! I highly recommend them! I don't actually watch K-Drama but would love to try watching sometime.

  2. I'm obsessed with Netflix, literally. One of my faves are The 100, and Santa Clarita Diet and I cannot wait until the next episode. I just started watching A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Rain. Oh, I also like watching docu-series like Evil Genius which you can binge-watch at 1 sitting for 4 hours straight. Evil Women and Forensic Files.

  3. I'm a huge Netflix fan. I can't believe the stark difference in numbers though when it comes to the availability of titles. I wish they'd add more titles consistently. The Flash is actually better on iFlix because you get same day viewing. Wild Child looks interesting. I think I'll give that a try. I'm mostly into crime, suspense and thrillers but I think I'm maxed out on that already!

  4. This particular papers fabulous, and My spouse and i enjoy each of the perform that you have placed into this. I’m sure that you will be making a really useful place. I has been additionally pleased. Good perform! Binged
