I think everyone should watch peaky blinders…

I have a lot of comedies I tell people about, so in no particular order.
Wilfred
The League
No Activity (US)
American Vandal
Brockmire
Stuff like that

There are too many to list! I’ll just mention what I’ve been watching the last few weeks, that I think are worth watching.

Pennyworth - still ongoing, great so far
The boys - season 1 is complete
Chernobyl - HBO miniseries, I just finished it. Watch. This. NOW.

I just started the expanse today. Looks promising.

The first season is slow, but the plot development is important. It really picks up in season 2.

A.P. Bio
Battlestar Galactica
Cougar Town
Fringe
Happy
Lost in Space (2018)
Six

Some Notes:
I tried to rank the above in view order, but it’s extremely hard as I like all of them. All the shows on the first list I’ve seen through probably 3-4 times each.

The Expanse - Watch in 4k if you can
Letterkenny - Probably my favorite comedy show, not for everybody
12 Monkeys - Best time travel show ever, ends amazingly well
Black Mirror - Each episode is standalone, doesn’t matter what order you watch in
Ascension - Only 3 episodes, but was done very well
Love, Death, & Robots - Do not watch with kids
