Netflix viewers obsessed with 'riveting' and 'best' documentary they've ever watched

The documentary series delves into the mysterious world of intelligence operatives

Netflix viewers are obsessed with a brand new documentary which has been hailed ‘riveting’ and the ‘best’ doc they’ve ever seen.

When it comes to factual TV shows, ‘riveting’ is exactly what you want and it seems that Spy Ops is no exception.

The streaming service is obviously home to a whole bunch of mind-blowing and exciting true stories, like Making a Murderer and The Tinder Swindler which explored true crime and a con artist respectively.

Now, viewers are taking a deep dive into geopolitics as Spy Ops is all about the first-hand accounts from intelligence operatives from the likes of MI6 and CIA, who share jaw-dropping moments from the moments like the Cold War to coups carried out by covert agents.

Other moments in history addressed in Spy Ops include Operation Jawbreaker, for which U.S. troops entered Afghanistan with a mission to take down the Taliban following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Meanwhile, other episodes look into MI6’s attempt to retrieve a double agent from Moscow while another showcases a testimony from a man who planned to assassinate Pope John Paul II.

So essentially, this is prime Saturday night binge viewing.

The show has been on Netflix for a week, after it dropped on September 8, and it has already racked up a lot of fans and is in the top 10 on Netflix’s trending TV list in the U.S.

One viewer took to X and gushed: "Oh my God. Spy Ops on Netflix is riveting. One of the best docs ever."

While another Netflix subscriber posted: “Highly recommend you watch Spy Ops on Netflix. Compelling stuff!"

A third wrote: “I need more episodes of Spy Ops on Netflix.”

And a fourth commented: “Spy Ops on Netflix is a pretty good documentary series if you’re into those kinds of things.”

One episode includes testimony from a man who planned to assassinate Pope John Paul II.

In related news, Monday marked 22 years since the horrific attack on New York that left almost 3,000 people dead.

The horrendous terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001 claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people and in the immediate aftermath, focus turned to the victims and the perpetrators.

New York City was forever changed and life shifted drastically for those who'd survived the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Footage showing the moment an entire class of students found out about the attacks received worldwide attention last year.

In the clip, which was shared on TikTok, we first see the students as they're laughing around and studying, before a follow-up clip of them watching on in silence as the terrifying news unfolds.

A newsreader can be heard discussing how a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon, causing one student to cover his mouth in shock and another to say: "Oh my gosh."
