The streaming behemoth that is Netflix may offer a home to everything from black-and-white foreign-language Oscar winners to ’80s-era throwbacks about plucky preteens battling monsters, but there’s one area in which it has truly excelled: the rom-com. After a few years out of fashion, it may actually be that Netflix is the one saving the genre, or at least reminding viewers just how much fun it can be to watch two nice people fall in love against a backdrop of misadventures and hijinks.

From modern classics like “Emma” to festival breakouts like “Obvious Child” and new originals like “Always Be My Maybe,” Netflix is filled with prime examples of all the loving, funny offerings the genre still has to offer. Here’s 8 you can watch right now.
