RANKED: All 23 of Netflix's original shows from best to worst

Orange is the new black ruby rose netflix 2NetflixNetflix’s ‘Orange Is the New Black’

Netflix has poured millions into producing its own original shows, but the company is notoriously secretive about telling us how many people are actually watching them.

We know which shows are being talked about, like “House of Cards” or “Orange Is the New Black” (new season June 17), but that doesn’t necessarily represent the quality of the show itself.

To get a sense of how Netflix’s shows stack up against one another, we turned to the reviews aggregator Metacritic, which pulls in critic (and audience) reviews from all over the world. We looked only at dramas and comedies Netflix had originated, and they had to have been reviewed by at least a few top critics. That left 23.

There were a few surprises in the data, one of which was that after a stellar end to 2015, Netflix has been in a bit of slump.

Here are Netflix’s 23 original shows, ordered from worst to best critical reception:
