You mean like original shows from Streaming services?
Or just shows in general that you can stream somewhere?

Anyway, my list changes constantly but right now it's probably:
1) Fargo S1 and 2 (not sure if they are streaming everywhere, they are on Netflix in my Region)
2) Breaking Bad/Better call Saul (both on Netflix, only Saul is "Netflix original" though)
3) Black Mirror S1-4 (5 was shit)
4) Bojack Horseman (netflix)
5) Dark (Netflix)

honorable Mention: ZeroZeroZero (amazon)

EDIT:
OH and OG Top Gear is also amazing. Grand Tour isn't quite the same

Is the new X Files any good? I never got into the show but always wanted to. I tried from watching from the beginning, but it was just so outdated.
watched the new one a little but could not get into it , and you are right the original series does look very out dated now , try millennium by chris carter , that one was very good but unfortunately got cancelled after a couple of seasons

Anything in particular, I just want to talk about shows.

THE AMERICANS





So fucking good. The basic plot is this dude and his wife (Keri Russell) are KGB agents working in the US during the Cold War while raising a family. Don't want to spoil anything, just watch it already! It's on Amazon Prime Video.

Top 5 best show of all-time IMO.

Dark, for sure.

Slow burner but has incredible build up and sense of dread, with some legit amazing twists and turns.

Mindhunter is a great [albeit unfinished] show.

I loved Lost first couple seasons but clearly they were making it up as they went along. They even said they wanted to end it after the 1st 3 seasons I believe but the network wanted more. So they had to drag it out with nonsensical stuff. The went to the Star Wars school of 'no clear roadmap' for the show.

I forgot about Community, that should have gone on my list as well. Have you seen Undeclared? It was Judd Apatow's project after Freaks and Geeks and right before he became mega famous. About a quarter of the episodes are a bit lame, but the rest is super good.
