Shows like Westworld: Most Addictive Fantasy and Sci Fi

These series cut across genres--superheroes, post-apocalyptic action, supernatural thrillers, and classic science fiction--but they should all come with a warning from the Surgeon General. Don't blame us when you mutter "one more episode" to yourself at 3 am.

Shows like Orange is the New Black: Netflix Dramas

Long gone are the days of the studios' monopoly on quality content. In 2020, Netflix will spend $17 billion on original content compared to $4 billion for HBO. And Netflix lavish spending is producing some quality shows--Netflix won 27 Primetime Emmys in 2019 versus 34 for HBO.

Shows like the OA: The Mystery Box

In his 2007 TED Talk, JJ Abrams discussed the "mystery box": a box of magic tricks he bought as a kid that he has yet to open, because the mystery is more exciting than the knowledge of what is inside. These shows follow people trying to open the mystery box, usually in a world of missing persons, time travel, and alternate realities.

Shows like Black Mirror: Best Mind Bending TV

If your favorite movies were Fight Club or Inception, you'll love this round-up of high quality TV series that mess with your head.

Scandinavian Drama TV Series

Not all Scandinavian dramas are Nordic noir crime thrillers, and here's a round-up of some of the best.

TV Series Based on Podcasts

In 2021, there were an estimated two million podcasts, so its not surprising that some of the most popular have inspired TV series--if you like investigative journalism, psychological thrillers, true crime, and creepy horror-adjacent stories--this is the list for you.

TV Series Inspired by Twin Peaks

These shows build on elements of Twin Peaks--evil bubbling underneath an apparently wholesome small town, detective work, surrealism, some horror, and undertones of the supernatural--all with a nod to David Lynch's distinctive style.

Shows like The OA: Missing Persons, Supernatural Causes

Not all is as it seems, when behind disappearances lay a whole world of dark and supernatural forces; if you don't know what we mean by 'the upside down', you haven't seen the best show on the list.

Shows like The Haunting of Hill House: Slow Burn Horror TV

These series are more creepy than scary, avoid jump scares and gore and instead focus on escalating tension, a sense of foreboding, and brooding atmosphere.
