You should watch ...

... Black Summer

I'm carrying on where PiIsNot3 has left off:

The sequence of titles are cryptic clues that clue only a few letters of the answer. Sometimes a clues is made up of several titles:

Top Boy — B (the "top", i.e. first letter of BOY)
Battle: Los Angeles — LA (Los Angeles, obviously)
Roman Empire &middot The 100 — C (100 in Roman numerals)
Heartland · Quicksand — K (The "heartland, i.e. middle of (quic)K(sand).)
Space Force — _ (A space)

Odd Squad · Kicks · The End of the F***ing World
    — SU (The odd letters of S(q)U(a)D "kick", i.e. throw out D, the end of ... (worl)D)
Big Mouth — M (the big or capital letter in M(outh).)
The Hollow · Mirage — ME (M(irag)E hollow, i.e. only its outer letters)
Romeo is Bleeding — R (Romeo is R in the NATO phonetic alphabet)

PiIsNot3 has found the overall mechanic and the first word.

Wild guess, but maybe you’d be interested in

Orange is the New Black, which happens to be a Netflix Original?

Based on the tags and affirmations by the OP in the comments, I believe the show titles

are wordplays in the style of cryptic clues. For example, Romeo is Bleeding might be a clue for the letter M (middle letter of ROMEO), while Quicksand might clue an anagram of SAND.

With that being said, I haven’t found a way to combine this mechanic into a sensible show title, but I do have a partial that may or may not be right:

Top Boy = B
Battle: Los Angeles = LA
Roman Empire + The 100 = C (Roman numeral for 100)
Heartland + Quicksand = K (middle letter of QUIC[K]SAND)

so that’s what I’m basing my guess off of currently.

  • $\begingroup$ You're on the right track! The last part of your answer is right but you still have to figure out the other parts to get the answer (also, doesn't really matter if it's Netflix Original or not) $\endgroup$ – pirate Apr 12 at 23:05
  • $\begingroup$ @pirate The best I got right now is rot13(Oynpx Zveebe), based on the Mirage and Romeo titles, but I don’t know how the rest of the shows fit... Maybe a hint? $\endgroup$ – PiIsNot3 Apr 12 at 23:28

I'm basing my guess on @PiIsNot3's answer, who already found the word

Black

Whick, I think adds the title

Black Panther

With the following other clues:

Space Force + Odd squad + Kicks = Pan ( ?? Space force already contains the letters 'pa', and Odd should be a marker of extracting these letters somehow)

End of the f*ing world + Big mouth = th (Because 'th' is the end of the word)

The Hollow + Mirage + Romeo = er ('e' is the last letter and 'r' is the first letter, so they are in the 'hollow' between the two words)

How about

BLACK SUMMER

the first part from @pilsnot3

BLACK

to finish the top line

space is just a space

Then maybe

odd letters of squad = SUD

but then you

kicks (remove) end of .... world (d) = SU

And

Big mouth could get you MM

Finishing with

hollowing out mirrage romeo = ER

Making the 2nd line

SUMMER but I’m still not fully getting cryptic clues as a concept so I don’t know how much a stretch this is

You should watch:

Space Force

Because:

It hasn't been released yet, and if it's showing up as available on Netflix, you could theoretically see the show before anyone else...if it's indeed available that is. Everything else on this list will still be there when you finish (but hurry up, Space Force might not be there once Netflix realizes it and corrects the bug)!

    $\begingroup$ Can you recommend something that did come out then? Thanks. $\endgroup$ – pirate Apr 11 at 17:57

I guess :

Cuckoo

Because :

In the edit section we can see Cuckoo was replaced by Quicksand.
Or maybe it was a mistake or part of the riddle.

Ok, I'm following my puzzle-solving mind with this answer, I hope it doesn't offend anybody.

I think you should watch:

Either Top Boy or Kicks.

Because:

These both have black leads.

And the reason I think you will like this is:

Netflix is well known for racial profiling. A number of the suggestions for you such as Battle Los Angeles, Odd Squad and Romeo is Bleeding are represented in your screenshot using black actors who are not necessarily the leads. This suggests that you normally watch things on Netflix with black leads in them.

    $\begingroup$ Uhhh, not my intention. No need for knowledge of these particular titles. $\endgroup$ – pirate Apr 12 at 11:23

I'm not sure, but maybe the answer is:

Roman Empire (Season 3 premiered on Netflix on April 5, 2019)

The reason for this is:

This is the only series of options that started a new season a few days ago and it was produced by Netflix as a series of "original Netflix" (all other options except for "big mouth" are not original productions of Netflix even if their broadcast was in Netflix but their production was not its way.For example "Quicksand" also airs now in Netflix but its production company is FLX).
