While online streaming is still a ways away from completely replacing traditional television viewing, it is ubiquitous enough at this point to make "Why isn't this show on Netflix yet?" a fairly common inquiry. Netflix gives its customers a chance to binge shows on their own schedules, which gives everyone more time to bitch about the programs that we can't just magically turn on at every whim. It all comes down to money and exclusivity, of course, but if the streaming service is willing to dump a ton of money into acquiring The Blacklist and all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls, then why can't it pony up the dough for everything else we want? As such, here are ten huge shows we think Netflix needs to add to its library posthaste, so that we may forget things like Hemlock Grove exist.

Seinfeld
The Show About Nothing has been a staple of syndication for over 15 years now, which might lead one to believe that its presence on demand wouldn’t be as welcomed. Well that’s a bunch of malarkey, and new generations of future Seinfeld fanatics are in dire need of a place to get their Puddy binge on. (The show is up on Crackle, but there are all those ads, not that there’s anything wrong with that.) Jerry Seinfeld himself took part in a Reddit AMA recently where he admitted discussions are being had with Netflix over the classic sitcom’s untouched VOD rights, as its TV deals (both cable and broadcast) expire this fall. This isn’t to say Netflix will definitely be getting their man hands all over it, as Amazon is no stranger in the “spending huge sums of money for exclusive rights” department, but one can hope. We’ll shine an insanely bright red light in their windows if they muck this up.
