There are plenty of reasons why a show wouldn't end up on Netflix, but none of them matter when you're desperate to get your fix.
Say you want to rewatch the one episode of Seinfeld that you used to love back in the day. If you pull up Netflix to try and stream it, you will have no luck. Seinfeld isn't on Netflix.
What if you wanted to relive some nostalgic days and check out a few old episodes of Doug or Hey Arnold! Oh well. You'll have to check somewhere else because the streaming giant doesn't have them.
What about something more recent? Let's say you wanted to watch an episode of FX's Emmy award-winning series The Americans. Don't bother checking Netflix because it's not there either.
Below, we've created a list of shows, new and old, that should definitely be added to Netflix.

Game of Throne is maybe the biggest show of the new millennium. I know that's a big claim considering that in last 17 years we've had shows like LOST and Breaking Bad, but Game of Thrones is a whole different monster.
Throughout its 6 seasons on HBO, it has been consistently dominating in the ratings, and it's always the most talked about topic the day after it airs.
Even its most recent seventh season premiere was so huge that the traffic to it took down HBO's website.
Sure, you can watch all the seasons on HBO Go or HBO Now, but adding it to Netflix could open it up to a whole new audience. Plus, plenty of other premium cable shows are already available to watch there, like Shameless and Dexter. It's time Game of Thrones got added to the mix.
would dominate NetflixThis might come as a surprise to you, but you cannot watch The Big Bang Theory on Netflix.
If you want to enjoy the antics of Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, Howard, and Rajesh, you'll have to look elsewhere becasue they are nowhere to be found.
Surely those lovable nerds would dominate Netflix because it's one of the highest rated sitcoms of all-time.
It's a tad surprising too because other CBS shows like How I Met Your Mother and Rules of Engagement are available on Netflix.
Preacher is one of those shows that it's hard to figure out if it's underrated or not.
It's clearly a well-written and executed series, but sometimes it can feel like people may not appreciate it for how great it really it.
Adding it to Netflix would fix that problem in a heartbeat. Within hours of hitting the streaming giant's queue, Preacher could easily become one of the most watched shows, if even just out of mass curiosity.
With other AMC series like Into The Badlands, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and Hell On Wheels having done so well on the service, it stands to reason that Preacher should also be added too.
Unsolved Mysteries was one of the greatest shows ever for scaring you to death with unfounded "fact."
From the moment host Robert Stack would walk into view wearing his tan trench coat, it was clear that some crazy, unbelieved stuff was about to go down.
The original series ran well over a decade, from 1987 until 2002, and never once failed to deliver the most insane stories about aliens or bigfoot they could find.
You can watch Forensic Files and The Twilight Zone on Netflix, so why not the one show that brilliantly blended the two?
Boy Meets World is easily one of the most classic family/teen sitcoms of all-time. It's right up there with Saved By The Bell and Full House.
The misadventures of Cory and Shawn and the whole gang doesn;t get the credit it deserves for helping to define a generation of TV watchers.
Even in its later years, it adapted to meet the experiences of its audience and that helped to seal its place in TV history.
The fact that it isn't on Netflix is a real shame, especially considering the fact that it's Disney Channel spinoff, Girl Meets World is.
Are You Afraid of the Dark? was nightmare fuel during the 1990s.
If you watched an episode of it before, say, "The Tale of Laughing in the Dark" or "The Tale of the Midnight Madness," you were definitely not going to sleep well that night.
Additionally, the series was a launching pad for Elisha Cuthbert, who would go on to star on 24, Happy Endings, and The Ranch.
The Goosebumps series, as well as many other R.L. Stine based movies and shows, are available, so it's only fair that at some point Netflix serves up Are You Afraid of the Dark? for streaming.
