In 2020, 13 shows attracted a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes. Here are the 5 you need to watch.

While 2020 has presented us with constant cancellations and disappointments, the one plus side has been entertainment. In a year where we've needed it most, there has been a steady stream of brilliant new television shows to distract us from the chaotic world around us.

As we reach the end of the year, the review website Rotten Tomatoes has rated all of our new, favourite TV shows. And a small handful (well, 13 to be precise) have received a perfect score of 100 per cent. Now, a fair few aren't available here (just yet) so we've rounded up five, fantastic shows that you can watch immediately.

Happy bingeing!
