Documentary Series To Stream On Netflix

1- History Of Swear Words [2021]

Welcome to “History of Swear Words”, hosted by none other than the legendary Nicolas Cage. I’m serious. This series is real and it’s easily bingeable. So prepare yourself to learn more about your favorite swear words, from “Fuck” to “Shit”. It’s a lot of fun and it’s actually educative. 2021 is off to a weird start, and I’m here for it.

 

 

 

 

2- The Toys That Made Us [2017]

I absolutely love this series. Being a kid in the 90’s is one of the main reasons why I binged it, but anyone who is a tiny bit curious about toys will certainly enjoy what this series has to offer. It’s lively and well-made, and it features some of your favorite toys, from “Power Rangers” and “Ninja Turtles”, to “Lego” and “WWE superstars”. 3 seasons have been released so far, and they’re all equally fun and informative.

 

 

 

3- The Movies That Made Us [2019]

You knew I ‘d thrown in a series about movies, but this one is a must-see. Despite it being short (only 4 episodes have been released so far), it’s still worth your time. Much like “The toys that made us”, this series tackles the thought process that went into making some of your favorite cult classics, from “Home Alone” to Die Hard”. I expect more episodes in the future, but it’s been a fun ride so far.

 

 

 

4- High Score [2020]

Ok yes I wanted to throw in something related to video games as well, so here it goes. “High Score” is yet another excellent Netflix series about the video game industry in the 80’s and 90’s. How did it all start? How did Nintendo win the console wars? You’ll have all the answers here, and then some. As someone who is very much intro retro games, I had a blast with “High Score”. It’s definitely worth binging.

 

 

 

5- The Ripper [2020]

I wanted to end this list on a dramatic note, but I have to admit: I’m a sucker for documentaries about serial killers. Yes, they’re morbid. Yes, they might give you nightmares, but they’re also quite intriguing. “The Ripper” is no exception: it dives deep into the story of The Ripper, a Jack The Ripper copycat who murdered women in 1970’s England. If this sounds like your cup of tea, then you’ll definitely enjoy this series. Others, you’ve been warned.
