(Photo by Netflix)FALL 2021 TV SURVEY: 30 FAVORITE NETFLIX SHOWSFor Rotten Tomatoes’ annual Fall TV Survey, we asked our users what they’re most looking forward to in the coming TV season and to reflect on the best shows from seasons past. Over 1,000 of them got back to us with their picks for fall.We first asked the question What is your favorite Netflix show? in our 2018 Fall TV Survey, and Stranger Things has dominated the category ever since. The hit horror series is followed by newcomer The Queen s Gambit then Marvel s Daredevil, Marvel s Jessica Jones, and Umbrella Academy. Though the series are now Netflix favorites, you won t find Arrested Development, Cobra Kai, or Lucifer on this list since they started their runs elsewhere. (And while Black Mirror began on Channel 4 in the U.K., it gets a pass because U.S. audiences were introduced to it on Netflix.)Read on to find out all of Rotten Tomatoes users’ favorite Netflix series.Disagree with the survey results?

Sophie-Marie Prime for Rotten Tomatoes: How did you become a part of The Dirt? You were originally interested in playing Tommy Lee, and you were steered towards the role of Nikki Sixx…Yeah, I read the script, and Tommy just seemed such a fun part to play because he s just so lovable. And so, I auditioned, and it looked like I was gonna play Tommy Lee. And then eventually they said, Look, we can t find anyone to play Nikki Sixx… Would you mind doing a tape? I remember feeling intimidated by the idea, because he s a very different character, and it s hard to put your finger on who he is… But then I did it, and they said they thought it was great, and they asked if I would play Nikki. I said yes, and it was the best decision I made. I absolutely loved playing him, and I can t imagine anyone else but Colson [Baker] playing Tommy.Were you a fan of Mötley Crüe s music?Not really. I mean, I was aware of their music, because obviously they re such a big part of that time period and culture in that time. I d heard them on the radio, and they have some great tunes. But it wasn t until I started this movie and actually spent time with it and spent time being them playing it that I fell in love with it — and now, I love it.(Photo by Jake Giles Netter/Courtesy of Netflix)How involved were Nikki and the band in the making of the movie? Were they ever on set?I met Nikki before, and then Tommy and Nikki came to New Orleans a couple days before we started shooting and joined our band practice we had. We d been doing it for a month in New Orleans, all the boys together, and they taught us They gave us tips and gave us some advice on the way they played, how they played, and the way they d hold their instrument, and the way they do things, so that was very useful.They were involved a perfect amount. They were a band who were very generous and gave thoughts, they gave advice, but then also trusted us to play our roles and took a step back while we filmed.Do you remember any specific props that came from the band directly?Well, to do with the guitars and the amps, when Iwan [Rheon] sat down and spoke to Mick Mars, all they talked about for two hours was different types of amps and stuff like that. Mick s all about the music I didn t know how Nikki would react to all of the drug paraphernalia. He s so sober now, and he had such a hard time battling his addiction problems, but once we got to set, was like, Show me all the drug paraphernalia. He was kind curious about it, and wanted to see what it was like, and make sure they got it right.Did he want to make sure it was realistic?Make sure it was real, but he s done so much to help other people with opioid problems, and it s something that was important to him, just to be done right and tastefully, and not shy away from the realities.
Join us weekly as Rotten Tomatoes reports on what s indie features are streaming. From promising releases by new voices to experimental efforts from storied filmmakers – or perhaps the next indie darling to go the distance for end-of-year accolades – we will break it all down for you here each week.For the foreseeable future, the specialty box office and all theatrical releases will be on hold as we all make efforts to socially distance ourselves and reduce the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. With that in mind, we have reshaped our Indie Fresh List to reflect the specialty box office releases that are newly available on streaming services and VOD. This week in our Fresh picks we have a gritty London crime thriller, a quarter-life crisis comedy, and a thought-provoking documentary about an artist and the man who stole her work. In our Spotlight section, we have the final installment of Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan s comedy travel series.Streaming This Weekend
