One of the great things about Netflix is their ability to cleverly hide numerous hidden gems within their infinite realm of film and TV classics. These precious hours of entertainment are plentiful, but sometimes hard to find. These secret titles are buried beneath a mountain of popular names and famous faces. Too many options and too little time prevent us from seeking out the unknown. Why risk it when you could watch Sherlock for the hundredth time? Luckily, you have me to do the hard work for you.

They need you, they need your affection.

Murphy Mason is stubborn, emotionally unavailable, and blind. She’s also trying to solve her friend’s murder. This isn’t your average crime series, however. In the Dark‘s main focus is on trust, the varying relationships in Murphy’s life, and how she manages to mess them all up. There’s more than enough time to catch up with this CW series before its sophomore season arrives in May. Like every CW show, it’s a bit kitschy, but also wildly entertaining.
