We have all been there. You’re scrolling through Netflix and wondering: “what should I watch?” Well, we decided to do the research and gathered five shows that you should really check out.
We do understand that there are going to be a ton of shows that won’t make this list. It doesn’t mean that we don’t like them or think they don’t deserve to be on this list. We apologize beforehand if we did not include your favorite shows. But hopefully this list helps you find a new show to watch.
This show isn’t for everyone, but everyone who does watch it surely gets sucked into it. If you want a combination of drama, dark comedy, and action, this show is for you. The show was created by a former SNL veteran who had us laughing for years. Bill Hader takes on the role of Barry, a struggling hitman who finally finds his life calling of being an actor.
As HBO put it: “Barry is a dark comedy starring Bill Hader as a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life, he reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an aspiring actor. Barry follows his “mark” into an acting class and ends up finding an accepting community in a group of eager hopefuls within the LA theater scene. He wants to start a new life as an actor, but his criminal past won’t let him walk away —can he find a way to balance both worlds?”
If you have a subscription to HBO Max please don’t let this show slip by you. With a 99% on Rotten Tomatoes, Barry is a must-watch!
4. House Of The Dragon
If you loved Game of Thrones how can you miss out on the spin-off that is House of the Dragon? “The reign of House Targaryen begins: House of the Dragon, the prequel to Game of Thrones, is here. Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” the series, which is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, tells the story of House Targaryen,” HBO says.
The new spin-off series aired on Sunday, August 21, and will have a total of 10 episodes premiering throughout the year. While only one episode has aired so far, the return viewer ratings are excellent. If you are a lover of Game of Thrones or just want to see some cool dragons, this is the show for you.
Lord of the Flies meets Wrong Turn. That’s one way of describing this show. “Yellowjackets,” tells the narrative of a team of wildly talented high-school girls soccer players who survive a plane crash deep in the Ontario wilderness. The series chronicles their descent from a complicated but thriving team to warring, cannibalistic clans, while also tracking the lives they have attempted to piece back together. Sophie Nélisse, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sophie Thatcher and Sammi Hanratty star as the teenagers, while Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis portray their adult counterparts as they reveal the truth about their survival 25 years later.
The star-studded cast brings to life an excellent story of survival and teamwork while creating one of the best dramas on TV today.
Yellowjackets has received an astonishing %100 on Rotten Tomatoes.
While there is only one season out so far, a second season is set to premiere on Showtime in early 2023. The series is a Showtime exclusive that will need a subscription to be watched. But luckily, the pilot of the show can be enjoyed for free on Pluto TV.
2. Broad City
If you want a good laugh, great friendships, and an awesome storyline look no further. Broad City is a coming-of-age series that will have you feeling all sorts of ways.
The show follows two main protagonists, Abbi and Ilana, who are two pals trying to have it all in New York City while dealing with offbeat friends, curious romances and anything else the city has in store for them.
Don’t be afraid to dive right into this one. You will be laughing, crying, angry, and happy. The show runs for 5 seasons and you can catch it on Hulu. Oh, and let’s not forget to mention the %99 rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
1. For Heaven’s Sake
A mix of comedy and documentary, For Heaven’s Sake is a certified must-watch tv show. In the show, we follow the search for Harold Heaven, who mysteriously disappeared from his remote cabin in Ontario, Canada, in the winter of 1934. Local police searched the nearby woods and dredged the adjacent lake, but Harold was never found nor heard from again. 85 years later, his great-great-nephew, Mike, attempts to solve this coldest of cold cases, with the help of his extended family and true-crime-obsessed best friend, Jackson.
This show was rated by both critics and audiences %100 on rotten tomatoes, and we can see why. The show offers a unique dynamic of what a documentary should be.
