If you can handle a little bit (OK, a lot) of potty humor, you should enjoy Big Mouth. The animated series follows two seventh graders, Nick and Andrew (series creator Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, respectively), as they struggle with their burgeoning sexuality, represented by a grotesque, crass hormone monster (also voiced by Kroll), whose base desires cause turmoil and frustration for both boys. Their friends Jessi (Jessi Klein) and Jay (Jason Mantzoukas) also struggle with puberty to varying degrees, as does Andrews crush, Missy (Jenny Slate). On its surface, Big Mouth is quite crude, but that humor belies the shows nuanced, relatable exploration of adolescence and physical maturation. The series deftly handles the difficulties of middle school life, including common misconceptions held by kids about their sexuality and their bodies. The second season of Big Mouth premiered October 5, and the series was renewed for a third season the following month. The series interesting format sees Netflix recasting the role of Elizabeth and other characters season-to-season; Claire Foy starred in seasons one and two alongside Matt Smith (Dr. Who) and Vanessa Kirby, while we know Olivia Colman (Peep Show) will be taking the royal reins in season three (with Helena Bonham Carter set to portray Princess Margaret as well). Netflix plans to produce a total of 60 episodes over six seasons. The first in a slew of Marvel shows to hit Netflix over the past few years, Daredevil stands largely on the strength of Charlie Coxs performance in the title role. Cast in a similar vein as Christopher Nolans Batman movies, this series shows a darker side to Marvel Studios colorful cast of superheroes. The blind vigilante spends his days protecting New York Citys Hells Kitchen as a lawyer, and his nights doing the same in a much more tangible (and violent) manner. This anthology series, created by mumblecore hotshot Joe Swanberg (Win It All), provides a template for relatable and realistic depictions of love and sex in the 21st century. Despite a star-studded list of performers including Orlando Bloom, Emily Ratajkowski, and Dave Franco, to name a few Swanberg manages to make you forget that youre watching someone famous by crafting characters that are deep, yet not too complicated to fit into a 30-minute window. Each vignette catalogs the struggles of a couple or group of people in contemporary Chicago, where gender roles and language barriers are equal obstacles for people seeking happiness. The shows brevity prevents most of the stories from reaching any sort of satisfying conclusion, but its a sincere collection of not-so-tall tales that most will find familiar and engaging. If you watch through both seasons, there are even some neat callbacks. Netflixs take on it sees the ladies of GLOW battling their own personal issues while trying to come together and produce a successful show; its a dangerous premise, but one that works incredibly well thanks to dedicated performances from Brie, Maron, and Betty Gelpin. British rocker Kate Nash, Sydelle Noel, and Britney Young are also excellent in supporting roles. Season 2 premiered in June to positive reviews, and the series was renewed for a third season in August 2018. Two-time Oscar nominee Scott Frank (Out of Sight, Logan) created this Western drama for Netflix and the miniseries went on to earn a pile of Primetime Emmy Award nominations for its epic, seven-episode story arc. The series is set in a small mining town during the 1880s, after a mine accident caused the death of nearly all of the towns male residents. The remaining women are doing just fine, though, until a gunslinger arrives in town on the run from his former mentor, the bloodthirsty leader of an outlaw gang. The film features Jeff Daniels as the cruel, aforementioned leader of the gang hunting for their runaway former member, but its Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery and Nurse Jackie actress Merritt Wever who are the shows real standouts, playing a pair of pioneer women who dont need any men to handle their business. Daniels, Dockery, and Wever all earned Emmy nominations for their performances, with Daniels and Wever both winning their respective nomination categories. The series boasts some absolutely stunning cinematography, brilliant dialogue, and compelling action scenes to go along with its strong performances all around. This terrifying series from Mike Flanagan, the writer and director of criminally under-appreciated horror films Oculus and Ouija: Origin of Evil, offers a new spin on Shirley Jacksons 1959 novel of the same name. It follows a family who moves into an old house intending to renovate it, only to experience one scary paranormal event after another before a mysterious tragedy forces them out of the haunted manor. The story unfolds through a mix of timeline-hopping explorations of each family members experiences at Hill House and years later, as the trauma of those encounters shapes their lives and eventually brings them back to where it all started. Krysten Ritter shines as antihero Jessica Jones, who rejected her superhero persona after a traumatic experience at the hands of Kilgrave (David Tennant), and now runs her own detective agency. Like Daredevil, the series is darker and more grounded than Marvels cinematic efforts, though its missing some of the goofy lighthearted qualities that Daredevil brings. Jessica Jones is thematically heavier, as the characters deal with topics like rape and PTSD. As with Daredevil, the villain is the sizzle of this first season Tennants take on the villain Kilgrave conjures perhaps the best performance of any on-screen Marvel bad guy this side of Tom Hiddlestons Loki. Jason Bateman has had as interesting a career as anyone in the limelight. He burst onto the Hollywood scene in the early 1980s as a young heartthrob, starring in stuff like Teen Wolf Too and The Hogan Family before spending the 90s in a drug-induced haze, and then experiencing a major career renaissance in the late aughts. Ozark marks a different look for Bateman than many have seen, as he plays a financial planner-turned money launderer who relocates his family to the remote Ozark mountains in Missouri to avoid attention from the law. Unsurprisingly, the law finds him anyway, and Marty (Bateman) must scramble to stay afloat while paying off debts to a Mexican cartel. Laura Linney is awesome as Martys wife, who gets caught up in the scheme, and Julia Garner is particularly good as the odd Ruth Langmore. Though Ozark will naturally draw comparisons to Breaking Bad, its scope isnt nearly as grand (yet), but Bateman seems to improve with each passing episode. This critically acclaimed series features Natasha Lyonne playing a woman who finds herself stuck in a time loop, reliving the night of her birthday and dying over and over again, only to wake up at the same earlier point in the night. Lyonne co-created the series along with Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland, and the first, eight-episode season received high praise from critics and audiences alike. The shows setting amid the nightlife of New York City, the colorful characters that drift in and out of the life of Lyonnes character, and the deep dive it takes into the psychological aspects of her experience make it so much more than just another Groundhog Day story. Created by Guillermo del Toro, Trollhunters story is fairly run-of-the-mill for a cartoon series (ostensibly for kids), but its masterful animation and voice acting set it apart from contemporaries. When 15-year-old Jim Lake (the late Anton Yelchin) finds a magical amulet, hes transformed into the Trollhunter, a magical being tasked with the protection of a world of trolls thats hidden beneath the fictional town of Arcadia. Jim must balance his real-life responsibilities with his new identity, battling evil gum-gum trolls and making friends in the process.
The shows production value keeps getting better, and the third and fourth seasons produced by Netflix include a bevy of household names, from Jesse Plemons to Gugu Mbatha-Raw (whom creator/writer Charlie Brooker uses to great effect). The first two seasons including the epic Christmas special White Christmas are also must-see programming. The series broke new ground in late 2018 with the release of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, a stand-alone movie that features an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure-style narrative that broke new ground for the medium.
The quality of each episode hinges largely upon the personality of the chosen chef, and some notably Massimo Bottura in the first season, Dominique Crenn in the second, and the brash Ivan Orkin in the third are more camera-friendly than others. Still, the series is a welcome departure from the competition-focused cooking shows that dominate cable and network TV. If you like this, Chefs Table France is also worth seeing. The shows action sequences are fun, and amiable supporting performances from Elden Henson (The Mighty Ducks) and Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) bring some comic relief and heart to the bleak setting, but as usual, the real stars of the show are the villains. Vincent DOnofrio is excellent as the deranged Kingpin, while Jon Bernthals turn as the Punisher which earned him his own Netflix series is as convincing as it is visceral. Season 3 of the series premiered October 19 and earned widespread praise, with some calling it the best season of the series so far. Sadly, the series was canceled by Netflix shortly after the debut of season 3 as part of its efforts to reduce the number of series it co-produces with other studios.
The Crown is perhaps the best show on television right now, period. Easily the most celebrated British period piece since Downton Abbey, The Crown follows Queen Elizabeth II the still-reigning Queen of England, at 91 years old across different periods of her life, beginning with her 1947 marriage to Prince Philip of Edinburgh. Reception to the series has been overwhelmingly positive, as nearly ever aspect of the show acting, production value, historical accuracy has been widely praised. After Justin Simiens 2014 film of the same name earned rave reviews, Netflix commissioned the young director for a multiseason TV series, featuring the same characters (recast) and an altered storyline. The series is about black students at a predominantly white (and fictitious) Ivy League college, Winchester University, who work to try and find both group and individual identities while carving out a place within the schools ecosystem. Logan Browning stars as Sam White, a student who runs a radio show titled Dear White People, which causes some controversy among the student body.
Dark weaves together multiple storylines amid complex relationships endemic to small-town life, even outside the good, old U.S. of A. If youre in the mood for a lighthearted romp or a satisfying romance arc, move on this is not the show for you. But if you love serious shows with a flair for the dramatic (and a heaping helping of despair), check this one out.
Beautifully shot, expertly paced, and filled with the sort of subtle call-backs that encourage multiple viewings, The Haunting of Hill House is one of the best horror tales to debut on any screen big or small in recent years. Oh, and if you dont believe us, just consider that Stephen King himself described the series as close to a work of genius.
While its the same old take on The Swiss Family Robinson at its core, the series special effects, set design, and cinematography are all top-notch, lending a sense of legitimacy to the many perils faced by the space Robinsons & co. Perhaps more importantly, the family dynamic especially with the three children and the robot Will befriends feels real, turning this from an also-ran space sitcom into a pretty great show.
Some episodes are funny, while some are sad, but the majority of them feel well-written and natural. Noël Wells and Eric Wareheim (Tim and Eric Awesome Show) provide some help off the bench, and while the acting can occasionally feel a bit strained (especially in the first season), Ansaris crisp writing and relatable performances (he won a Golden Globe for his efforts) truly carry the show. Azizs real parents also appear as Devs parents in several hilarious segments, displaying comedy chops that must be hereditary.
Why do we obsess over serial killers? Perhaps its because we dont truly understand what makes them tick. Thats the hook for Mindhunter, a crime drama with executive production credits for both David Fincher (Fight Club, Gone Girl) and Charlize Theron. Jonathan Groff (Glee, Hamilton) and Holt McCallany play FBI agents tasked with interviewing and assessing serial killers in order to build personality profiles which might help solve ongoing and future cases. Aside from Anna Torv (Fringe), a largely anonymous cast takes the stage here, as the pair of agents investigates and interviews real killers from the mid-late 20th century, including one Ed Kemper.
This dramedy is the crown jewel of Netflixs original program list judging by critical reception, at least. Orange is the New Black has received dozens of nominations and awards for its portrayal of an all-female prison, by way of Piper Chapmans (Taylor Schilling) indictment, ten years after smuggling drug money for her girlfriend. The show has been praised for its thoughtful representations of prison inmates, and for exploring issues relating to race, sexuality, and emotion within a controlled, female-dominant environment.
A sci-fi drama from some of the genres greatest storytellers might seem like an easy win, but there was nothing typical about this groundbreaking show from Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski. The series follows a group of eight individuals from around the world who suddenly find themselves connected mentally and emotionally. They are able to experience each others lives and draw upon the knowledge and talents they each possess. On the run from a mysterious government agency rounding up these Sensates, they must find a way to protect themselves and continue to live their lives, both as individuals and now collectively.
While the premise might seem straightforward, Sense8 stands out for its diverse, international cast and globe-spanning locations that allow them to experience the world through each others eyes. As beautiful as the series is visually, it reaches even greater heights with its willingness to explore the world and the human experience through its characters hearts, and show the myriad ways we can love and be loved by those around us. The series was abruptly canceled after its second season due to the high cost of its international filming, but a fan campaign prompted Netflix to greenlight a two-hour series finale that tied up the storys loose ends.
