Netflix is a streaming King for a reason, and it has just about everything! There are a few big shows missing, including Game of Thrones, Modern Family and more.

If you think back at the early days of Netflix, the streaming service has come a long way! I hate to get all old on you, but “back in my day,” Netflix was only for streaming shows from other Networks and movies from other studios. Subscribers also had the option to have a DVD and Blu-ray delivery service.

That’s right, back then, we had to wait up to a week to watch a movie. Oh, how far we have come! While you are still able to rent movies via DVD/Blu-ray delivery, subscribers are also able to stream movies immediately from Netflix. The same goes for binge-watching seasons on seasons at a time without waiting on a physical copy.

That is not all! Now, Netflix has its own movies and television show it produces, known by all as Netflix Originals. The streaming giant has also stepped in to save several shows or give them a big boost in popularity. You is the latest one to be adopted by Netflix, and fans are campaigning for The Imposters to be rescued, as well.

However, there are still many shows not available to stream on Netflix that we wish would be. With how much The Office continues to be rumored to leave the service in a few years, the comedy may be joining our list soon, but there are still several other programs that need to join the Netflix party.

From the beloved comedy Modern Family to the spooky tales of Scooby-Doo and many nostalgia favorites, here are 25 good shows we wish were streaming on Netflix.
