2018 on Netflix: To All The Shows and Movies We've Loved Before

The year is almost at an end, can you believe? While some may think 2018 was The End of the F***ing World, let’s not forget our latest trek around the sun introduced us to the new Fab Five - yes, that was this year- (Queer Eye), the new - and wickedly dark - Sabrina (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and the Noah Centineo (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before). It reinvigorated our love for crying dogs (Dogs), sexy robots (Lost in Space) and bubbble baths (Big Mouth) and most of all, our love for love (The Kissing Booth, Set it Up). Also Noah Centineo (sh*t we said that already). To be fair 2018 did have its moments, after all there were a few of us who Craned our pants this year (The Haunting of Hill House) and someone actually made this (Nailed It!).... Without further ado here are the series, shows and stars we binged, rewatched and fell in love with in 2018.
