Maniac on Netflix is quirky, cool, and retrofuturistic.
The Tudors on Netflix is brilliant and beautiful. 4 seasons.
Shameless on Netflix is based on the UK comedy series of the same name but takes the idea to Chicago with such drama and accuracy. Wonderful show. 8 seasons.
The Borgias is a brilliant, beautiful, and violent take on the story. It’s on Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and more. Watch it, if you dare.
The thoroughly delightful Netflix show, Flowers, is sad, funny, and offbeat. It gets a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes megareview site.
Hulu’s The Bridge is a great crime drama from the Mexican-American border
Spartacus on Netflix is well done. The production is impeccable. Even the English that is spoken, is appropriate for the era (although, clearly Spartacus did not speak English). The other aspect that is worth mentioning is that the lead character changed for the second season because extremely virile actor that played Spartacus in Season 1 had to fight lymphoma, and he ultimately died from it as is recorded in a heartbreaking Netflix documentary “Be Here Now” which is itself worth watching.
Crazy funny and so valid, Big Mouth takes adolescent hormonal rage to the limit. Wow. 2 seasons so far.
Superlatives is all I can say about the sweet, funny, sad High Maintenance on HBO. Season 3 is underway right now and I hope there are 10 seasons.
The Ovation network has a wonderful historical drama, Versailles, that should not be missed. 3 seasons.
AMC’s The Walking Dead is not about zombies; it’s about the essential ingredients of humans. 9 seasons so far.
