MY FAVORITE SHOWS: THE ULTIMATE LIST

I’ve watched a lot of shows… like, a lot. I’ve had a show recommendations list on my Notes app for as long as I can remember, so I thought I’d share some of them on here along with a leetle summary.

COMEDY

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

This show focuses on a Brooklyn police precinct and its employees, so detectives, cops, officers, all that jazz. Andy Samberg has not only jokes, but BDE, and this series graciously introduced me to him. Chelsea Peretti would have me laugh-crying portraying her pop-culture obsessed character, Gina. I could go on and on about this cast.

Where you can watch: Hulu, NBC

That 70s Show

Ah yes, where Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis began their love story. This show focuses on a group of friends in Wisconsin in the 70s (duh) and their young adult lives that includes boyfriend/girlfriend drama, beer, smoking, and longing for independence.

Where you can watch: Netflix, Amazon Prime Video

Big Mouth

Please don’t be scared away by the fact this show is animated, or any show. This is the funniest animated adult series out there. Nick Kroll and John Mulaney (king!), the former who doubles as a creator and producer, voice the main characters– two middle school-aged boys navigating puberty and their changing bodies, but in the most hilarious and vulgar way.

Where you can watch: Netflix

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Created by Tina Fey, this show focuses on Kimmy Schmidt (played by Ellie Kemper) who finally escapes after an underground cult led by a crazy reverend and befriends amazing, flamboyant Titus in New York City and gets a job as a personal assistant to a rich woman. Carol Kane made me want to rip my eyeballs out the entire series, unfortunately.

Schitt’s Creek

This show definitely took me a few episodes to get into, but it’s so good. It’s CBC so most of the actors are Canadian like Daniel and Eugene Levy, who are also writers for the show. Legendary Catherine O’Hara is in it, too and she’s hilarious. It’s sweet, not emotionally traumatizing, funny, and entertaining. What more can you ask for?

COMEDY-DRAMA

Shameless

This show is *chef kiss*. It has a great cast and an interesting plot with laughs and tears. It’s about an extremely dysfunctional family in Chicago led by Fiona (Emmy Rossum), raising her five younger siblings. William H. Macy plays their not-so-present chaotic father. Debby sucks.

Where you can watch: Netflix, Amazon Prime Video

Orange is the New Black

Piper, who now lives a very normal life with her boyfriend Larry, is sent to prison for carrying drugs for her drug dealer ex-girlfriend. It focuses on the group of friends Piper makes in prison, as well as other inmates, and also discusses the cruelty of the prison system.

Where you can watch: Netflix

Atypical

I really wish this show had gotten more seasons. It’s about Sam, who’s on the autism spectrum and his friends, family, and introduction to the dating world. It’s super sweet and does a good job of discussing/teaching about the spectrum.

Where you can watch: Netflix

On My Block

This show deserves SO much more hype. It’s about four high school-aged friends– Cesar, Monse, Ruby, and Jamal, in Los Angeles. It involves gang violence, coming-of-age trials and tribulations, romance, and comedy.

Where you can watch: Netflix

Freaks and Geeks

Young Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Lisa Cardellini, Busy Philipps, and Jason Segel. That should speak for itself. The show focuses on them as high school students as well as a group of middle school boys in the 80s. This show was ROBBED, robbed I say! They only got one season.

Where you can watch: Amazon Prime Video

Umbrella Academy

This is another show that deserves way more hype. It’s about seven adopted siblings who all have superpowers and are reunited after years apart by a family death. Their father created the Umbrella Academy made up of his children to save the world. I love Klaus and his character development <3.

Where you can watch: Netflix

Disenchantment

This show has the same creator as The Simpsons, but it’s very different. Feisty princess Bean and her sidekicks, pessimistic demon Luci and naive elf Elfo encounter dangers in their medieval town and unravel huge mysteries.

Where you can watch: Netflix

DRAMA

How to Get Away with Murder

Viola Davis is such a badass in this show, and in general, too. She’s a law school professor that chooses a group of students from her class to assist with cases. They all get tied up in drama and yes, murder, so crazy. However, season six really disappointed me.

Where you can watch: Netflix, ABC

Dead to me

Christina Applegate and Lisa Cardellini’s characters meet in a support group and become friends. However, Cardellini’s character, Judy, is hiding a huuuuge secret from Applegate’s character, Jen. Then they get wrapped up in some ish and James Marsden is there, too.

Where you can watch: Netflix

Bates Motel

This is what sparked my girl crush on Nicola Peltz. This series is clearly based off the 1987 Bates Motel movie, but from what I can remember, is not the same. Norman and his mom move to a new town and own/run a motel. Here’s the catch: he’s a psychopath.

Where you can watch: Netflix, YouTube, Google Play, Amazon Prime Video

Queen of the South

Another underrated show right here. Queen of the South is focuses around a Mexican cartel that the main character, Teresa, who gets wrapped in it through her boyfriend that is murdered. She rises through the ranks of the cartel, and plenty of drama and plot twists ensue.

Where you can watch: Netflix, Amazon Prime Video

Reign

Sometimes I think about how cool it’d be to live in the 1500s and then I remember there was disease, plague, female oppression, and corruption. Regardless, Reign is a great show. It focuses on Mary Queen of Scots and her arrival in France to claim her political marriage arrangement. Learn about (dramatized) history and be entertained, all in one!

Where you can watch: Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video

Euphoria

This show is not for everyone; it delves into very serious topics and isn’t for people who can’t handle that or it may trigger them. I was able to watch this show, and loved it. The cast is amazing and it has one of the best soundtracks I know a show to have. It follows drug addict Rue, played by Zendaya, and her and her friends’ lives.

Where you can watch: Hulu, HBO Now, Amazon Prime Video

REALITY

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

This show is hilarious and full of drama, which you’d expect. It’s still going and just as good! The “housewives” change throughout seasons, but it focuses on multiple women of wealthy families in the Beverly Hills area and their friend group.

Where you can watch: Hulu, YouTube, iTunes, Amazon Prime Video

Keeping up with the Kardashians

Everyone likes, or is at least entertained by the Kardashian/Jenners and if you say you don’t you’re lying to yourself. 10/10.

Where you can watch: Hulu, YouTube TV, YouTube

Love Island UK

When I tell you Love Island UK season 6 is the best reality show I’ve ever watched, I’m saying it with my chest. Imagine The Bachelor but one thousand times better, and that’s this. Unlike The Bachelor, Love Island has the same number of women as men, include couple versus couple contests, and is open to public voting.

Where you can watch: Hulu, CBS
