Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

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 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.

Shows like Stranger Things: Popular Sci-Fi

A list of some of the highest-ranked, non-animated science fiction shows--perfect if you're looking for something to watch after Firefly or Stranger Things.

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 Mr Robot: Confronting Tech's Dark Side

Sure technology brought you the very screen you're reading this on, but it also brought cyber surveillance and drones programmed to kill. These shows explore the ethical dilemmas technology presents.

Shows Like Man in the High Castle: Dystopian Futures

Whether the ruling class are Nazis or aliens (no Nazi aliens, fortunately), the societies they enforce are pretty damn unappealing.

Shows like Legion: Trippy TV

The characters in these series experience reality differently than most people--they talk to the dead, see psychedelic visions, or are trapped in time, they may be suffering from mental illness or recovering from trauma, but also see things that others miss and probe deep existential issues.
