Stranger Things (Netflix)

Fall 2018 TV Survey: Favorite Netflix Shows

It was no surprise at all really that Stranger Things swept the top spot across all demographic age groups when we asked Rotten Tomatoes fans, “Which Netflix original series is your favorite?” Examining the vote disparity between males and females for the series that followed was vastly more entertaining.

Marvel’s Daredevil, for instance, ultimately took second place overall, but didn’t appear in the top five for women in any age group and got only 1.6 percent vote from women across all age groups. The Crown, meanwhile, was No. 2 among men and women in the 55+ age group (11.8 percent), which also pulled up Grace and Frankie, which scored 1.9 percent among Millennials and 2.5 percent among Gen X respondents compared to nearly 8.4 percent among those 55+. Black Mirror was No. 2 overall for Millennials, but No. 3 for Gen Xers.

We gave survey participants one vote — read on to see how they used them.
