From The Sopranos to Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad to Friends – TV series’ can sometimes become famed for their significant contributions and influences on popular culture.
And with so much new content being made available to stream these days, it’s more difficult than ever to stand out in such a way.

Several fans have taken to social media to share their opinions on why the show is significant, with one Facebook user saying that Maid might well be the most important series in history.
She writes: “Maid on Netflix is possibly one of the most important series in history.
“Yep. I said it.
“Why is talking about domestic violence so important? It’s important because even though women are the victims, domestic violence carries this terrible stigma even in 2021.
“It’s important because abusers are often publicly great guys.
“The victim’s family loves them and they will often defend the abuser, leaving the victim without a support system.
“The victim becomes the bad guy who wants to break up the family.
“This series is important because abusers themselves and many other people do not understand how terrorising verbal and mental abuse is – the constant promise of change, the apologies.”
On Twitter, fans have echoed similar thoughts, with one user stating that Maid is one of the most powerful shows they have seen.

One writes: “Maid is one of the most powerful shows I’ve seen in a really long time.”
While another adds: “My favourite thing about Maid on Netflix is Alex wasn’t even physically abused.
“It was emotional abuse.
“But it’s proof that physical abuse isn’t the only abuse in relationships and emotional abuse is just as serious and leaving is always okay.”
The series is available to watch on Netflix.
