Best answer: Here are some of my recommendations of shows which are exclusive to Netflix (i.e, I'll won't be recommending shows that you could just find on TV)
-Black Mirror - season 4 came out a couple of weeks ago. Each episode is like a movie, and most have dystopian themes or commentary about technology and society. Episodes are also generally futuristic but realistic (sci-fi). I recommend this because you liked Stranger Things, 13 Reasons Why, and Riverdale. It's more mature than those shows, however, and deals with graphic concepts. 4 Seasons total, each with just a few 60-100 minute episodes.
-Ozark - Beautiful cinematography, although this one is a hit or miss; some people dislike it, but others really enjoyed it. Detractors say that it's a rip on the middle-class crime POV of Breaking Bad. This show is about money laundering and stars Jason Bateman. It is 1 season so far.
-Better Call Saul - Okay, I lied. This show is on TV as well, but it's just really good. It's a spin-off of Breaking Bad, revolving around Jim McGill/Saul Goodman. I personally love this show, whereas I was somewhat indifferent toward Breaking Bad and neglected to watch the finale. The writing is very tight and Jimmy is a lot more relatable than Walter White.
-Hap & Leonard. There's only 1 of 2 seasons on Netflix, and this show is also on one of AMC's subchannels (I think). It needs more love, though, so I'm breaking my rule. This show is a mystery-adventure based on a book series and set in the 60s. Season 1, which is available on Netflix can act as a succinct story (season 2 is sort of like a different "book" anyway).
-The Get Down -This show was canceled after 1 season for its high budget, but it was created by Baz Luhrmann, so of course the production was huge. This is a musical TV show of sorts and deals with a kind of partially fictional look at the history of hip-hop and part of its roots in disco. The show is really a lot of fun, although I'll admit the beginning drags a little and there's this magical-realism comic booky schtick with Shaolin Fantastic at the beginning of the season which sort of gets dropped. This is a show you can really get sucked into, and if you do, I fully apologize for recommending it, because season 2 is never seeing the light of day.
-American Vandal - a mockumentary series about a high school kid who gets expelled for supposedly drawing ***** on all his teacher's cars. You may like this because it has a similar film style to Parks & Rec and the Office, which are sitcoms using the mockumentary style. 1 Season but another is possible. Either way, season 1 can be seen as a complete story.
-Arrested Development -a great comedy show, much like Parks and Rec and the Office (same filming style). At the same time it's quite different. I watched this show after enjoying P&R and I actually like it more. 4 seasons on Netflix. Jason Bateman is an actor on this show, too.
-It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - OKAY OKAY this one is on TV, too, but come on, it's FXX. This is a sitcom sort of like Arrested Development, with characters who are terrible people but who are hilarious. IASIP pushes the envelope socially, but it's a good show written by the cast, who is actually very socially conscious. There are 11 of 12 season on Netflix, I believe. It's the standard 22 minute episode format. Season 1 has less episodes, but after that there are full 20-ish episode seasons.
I'll stop here, since this is sort of a lot, anyway. I hope I helped and that one of these shows catches your interest :) (Hopefully I didn't just list a bunch you've already seen)
