A new Netflix show has fans proclaiming on social media that more people need to tune in as it continues to get rave reviews.

Friends can often recommend a Netflix show and it simply doesn’t hit the mark, but some social media users are insisting the streaming giant's WW2 drama lives up to the hype.

All the Light We Cannot See has been lapping up fans since it hit streaming earlier this month and has continued to get positive reviews from viewers.

On IMDb it currently commands a 7.6/10 score, which is nothing to turn your nose up at.

It also boasts a 71 percent audience score on aggregate movie website Rotten Tomatoes. Admittedly, critics haven’t been as kind though, giving it a 26 percent on the Tomatometer. Ouch.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, many fans have insisted the four-episode mini-series is worth taking a chance on, however.

The show’s synopsis reads: "The story of Marie-Laure, a blind French teenager, and Werner, a German soldier, whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II."

The mini-series is also based on Anthony Doerr's Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller.

“Bloody brilliant. Stars Hugh Laurie and Mark Ruffalo. Set during WW2 and involves the Nazis and a blind French girl,” an enthusiastic X user wrote.

“I’m watching this beautiful series on a Netflix called All the Light We Cannot See. Visually beautiful so far. And the music 🎶 is what really sucked me in. Fantastic Cast - I like Hugh Laurie. He’s hot,” another said as they praised the show.

All the Light We Cannot See was an amazing watch been a while a series made me so emotional. Brought back memories of my childhood radio obsession days. Aria Mai (Marie-Laure) and Louis Hofmann(Werner) were both brilliant. Highly recommend," another X user raved.

“Hugh Laurie turns in an absolute masterpiece of a performance. Lars Eidinger is believably obsessed and equally wicked. Even Mark Ruffalo turns in a stirring performance. Aria Mia Loberti though, is completely captivating,” another added.

All the Light We Cannot See is streaming on Netflix now.
