7 Binge-Worthy Docu-Series on Netflix

Documentaries tend to have a false reputation of being "boring." But with the wild success of Netflix's newest docuseries "Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness," we have learned that sometimes, real-life can be much more entertaining and interesting than fiction ever could. Here are seven binge-worthy docu-series on Netflix.

  1. 1. "Wild Wild Country"

    This six-episode series revolves around the Rajneesh movement, a cult from the 1970s and1980s who developed their own utopian town called Rajneeshpuram in Oregon.

  2. 2. "How to Fix a Drug Scandal"

    For the fans of true crime, this series is perfect. This four-episode series follows the story of a couple of forensic chemists who falsified and tampered with evidence, which led to thousands of drug convictions in the state of Massachusetts.

  3. 3. "The Staircase"

    This 13-episode series follows novelist Micheal Peterson, who was accused of killing his wife Kathleen Peterson in 2001.

  4. 4. "Roman Empire"

    This one is for the history lovers out there. With three seasons, this series follows the stories of three Roman leaders; Commodus (season one), Julius Ceaser (season two) and Caligula (season three). This series also has re-enactments of historical events, which makes it perfect for those who aren't fans of a full-on documentary.

  5. 5. "Dirty Money"

    With two seasons of content, "Dirty Money" tells the story of corporate corruption and greed. These episodes take on some of the biggest people and companies in the world: Volkswagen, Wells Fargo, a Malaysian Prime minister and even Donald Trump.

  6. 6. "Dark Tourist"

    This isn't your typical travel documentary. While most tourists visit tropical beaches or architectural wonders of the world, this one has visited some of the most unusual and grim places in the world. 

     

  7. 7. "The Last Czars"

    This is another great series for lovers of history. This follows the story of the Romanov family, the last monarchs of Russia. You might be a little familiar with this story if you've seen Disney's "Anastasia." This series is not a proper documentary considering it is a very dramatized re-telling of the story, but it's incredibly interesting and still offers the historical facts along with a dramatic re-enactment of the events.
