It’s back. It’s been over a year since we saw the debut of Disenchantment on Netflix and by all accounts, it looks like season 2 builds upon the first and is soon becoming one of the best-animated series on Netflix.

The series comes from Matt Groening who is known for his other two huge Fox series, The Simpsons and Futurama (neither of which are on Netflix anymore).

Criminal (4 Seasons) Netflix Original

Criminal is perhaps one of the most unique propositions on Netflix to date. Although reviews have been relatively mixed, most seem to agree it’s an interesting premise and a jolly good attempt at doing a series that crosses multiple borders.

Four seasons in total were added with each clocking in at three episodes apiece. They come from four different countries throughout Europe with the United Kingdom being the only one produced in English. There’s also a German, French and Spanish series.
