Shows like Fleabag: Best Dramedies

The ancient Greeks divided their plays into comedies and tragedies, but the smiling and frowning masks are more extremes of a spectrum than binary variables, and some of the best TV shows of the past two decades, like Fleabag, Atlanta, Succession, and Shameless, find humor in deep pain and poignancy in funny situations.

Best Comedy TV

A round-up of the best live action comedies, ranked by ratings, popularity, awards, and influence on other comedies--including the full range of RomComs, dark comedies, sitcoms, and more.

Amazon Original Comedy

While 'Betas' can't exactly be called original, it is certainly true that all the comedies on this list were produced by Amazon. Make sure to check out hidden gem 'Patriot', for a dark, wholly unique political caper.

Shows Like Fleabag: Anti-Sitcoms for the Cynical

Let's face it, traditional sitcoms can get cloying quick; that's why you need these shows, to bring some dark, sarcastic, alcoholic balance to your life. You can't have the Yin of Friends without the Yang of Fleabag.

Shows like Succession: Workplace Shows for the 1%

Forget Dunder Mifflin and Cloud 9, these dramas and dramadies center on the workplaces of financiers, media magnates, high priced lawyers, and other professionals who are highly-educated, overpaid, and often ethically challenged.

Shows Like Dead to Me: Women with Problems Dramedy

The female leads in these shows face all sorts of problems: illness, divorce, incarceration, etc. -- but manage to plug ahead, aided by gallows humor.

Shows Like Scandal: Fixers for the 1%

The protagonists in these shows help the ultra-wealthy solve their problems, be they legal, medical, or personal. Wouldn't it be nice if they did some pro bono work for the 99% once in a while?

Best British Comedy TV

Fleabag is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to great, recent British comedy.

Series featuring Unlikable Characters

On first glance, not clear why you would want to watch a show starring self-absorbed, unlikable a**holes, but they can be pretty funny.
