If you're looking for a binge-watch, Netflix reigns supreme.It’s one of the first – and still one of the best – streaming services out there. There are so many hours of content that you can be sure there will always be something to watch.
But there's one particular area that Netflix is well known for.The streaming service always kills it when it comes to documentaries... it's well and truly nailed the genre in recent years.
There's now a huge selection of documentaries available at our fingertips.Whether you're into true-crime or mystery, celebs, fashion or even food, there's truly something for everyone.
The streaming giant has dropped some highly acclaimed factual spectacles.Like The Keepers for example, which explored the 1969 unsolved murder of nun and school teacher Cathy Cesnik. The documentary filled our growing appetite for true-crime content, arguably spearheaded by Making A Murderer.
Or how about this classic?The Staircase first aired in 2004, but Netflix picked up the documentary and added some updated episodes last year. It explores the mystery of the death of Kathleen Peterson and is well worth a watch.
And of course, there are options out there for those wanting an inside look into the lives of their favorite celebs.Lady Gaga's 5 foot 2 gave fans an intimate look at the pop powerhouse behind all the glitz and glamour of the Gaga image she's crafted as she gears up for her 2017 Superbowl performance. It's a candid and honest watch, and fans lapped up the chance to see a different side of the star.
Of course, we couldn't not mention Fyre.The tell-all doc chronicles the creation of the notorious Fyre Festival from its creation through to its eventual unraveling.
But the newest documentary series to take the reigns is none other than Unsolved Mysteries.
And boy, did they make an impact.
