Have you heard? Netflix has finally arrived in Malaysia! You can now binge watch countless television series and films that you might have had to, er, stream illegally before. All you have to do is subscribe to the cable provider for a monthly fee (starts at RM33 for Basic to RM51 for Premium) and you'll be able to watch your favourite shows on your web browser, smart TV, game consoles as well as on designated apps for Android, iOS and Windows. There's also a free one-month trial for those of you who aren't sure about signing your life away.

In the hope that these will be available for streaming in our country (because we won't necessarily get the same show list that the US enjoys), the following are our top picks of shows to watch on Netflix.

Jessica Jones
Why? Because which self-proclaiming feminist wouldn't love a badass woman who can hold her own? And also because Krysten Ritter is amazing.

Daredevil
The film version starring Ben Affleck might have been a flop (sorry) but we assure you that the television series is a whole lot better than you think. Don't believe us? Give it a try.

Orange is the New Black
Mostly because Ruby Rose and Taylor Schilling have great chemistry that you can't possibly ignore. Other than that, we just love how the women are such strong people who we can easily look up to (besides their tendency to partake in illegal activities of course).

Girls
We just love how adorably contradicting Adam Driver's character is. Also, the series is about to end after its sixth season, so the time to get with the Girls in-crowd is now.

Scandal
Our Ed-in-Chief who is a hardcore fan will be able to save a lot of money on DVDs now that we can stream the series on our televisions!

Doctor Who
There is a big (and still growing) fandom of the long-running British series here in Malaysia, so we expect many to be streaming it on Netflix.

Peaky Blinders
Cillian Murphy, his Burmingham accent and a terribly engaging plot are good enough to convince you to watch the series.

Sherlock
One never needs to justify watching Sherlock.
