1. Netflix should be embarrassed about canceling Santa Clarita Diet

Seasons: 3

Created By: Victor Fresco

Starring: Drew Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant, Liv Hewson, Skyler Gisondo

Can you believe we got a dark comedy where Drew Barrymore played a flesh-eating zombie and it wasn’t the biggest hit on Netflix? Sure, Santa Clarita Diet earned its fair share of buzz and conversation, but the series never managed to crossover from a cult hit to a full-fledged mainstream sensation. In another life, undead Drew Barrymore lives on.

Santa Clarita Diet centers on Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and Joel Hammond (Timothy Olyphant), average suburban parents

and real estate agents raising their daughter amid the mundanities of everyday life. However, when Sheila suddenly transforms into a member of the undead and craves human flesh, the boring lives of the Hammond family takes an unexpected, thrilling turn.

In spite of early critical reviews for its graphic bloody imagery, Santa Clarita Diet was one of the many critically acclaimed hidden gems on Netflix. Barrymore and Olyphant were one of the most solid on-screen comedy duos we never saw coming and deserved far more accolades than they received. Ending on an ambiguous semi-cliffhanger, the best was still yet to come with Santa Clarita Diet, and Netflix should still be kicking itself for canceling a true cult classic.
