As per usual, some of the best shows are available to watch online. So we’ve put together a list of those we recommend, along with a note on where to watch the best TV shows. Grab your popcorn and enjoy!
Sex Education (available on Netflix)
Here is full proof that a show can possess the ability to help us remember the very first time we fell in love. Remember those butterflies in your stomach and that unforgettable eye contact sending your hormones all over the place? Now here comes Laura Nunn’s Sex Education about a schoolboy offering sex therapy to his classmates. For a fee, of course, And helping him out is his crush, who ironically doesn’t offer any affection in return. He uses his empathy and intuition that he likely learned from his therapist mother (played by Gillian Anderson(. The show deals with mental health and sexual issues in an honest and fun way that teenagers aren’t typically exposed to. It’s also full of heart and hugely entertaining.
Devs (available on Hulu)
Sonoya Mizuno plays a programmer named Lily, who is employed by a tech billionaire who just might have had a hand in her boyfriend’s disappearance. Within this primary set-up exists talk of surveillance, the multiverse, and maybe even time travel. These are all typical elements of the show’s creator Alex Garland. If you enjoyed Annihilation or Ex Machina, you should definitely give Devs a try. Mizuno skillfully captures the viewer’s fears and questions, embodying them in a woman who possesses every bit as much intelligence as her mad genius boss. Watching the “devs” teamwork while talking about everything from music to privacy adds a degree of levity to the foreboding.
Sandition (available on PBS Masterpiece via Amazon Prime)
This adaption of the unfinished and final novel from Jane Austen is a sexed-up version for television, conveying courtship in Regency England. This show was delivered by Andrew Davies, the executive producer who also penned the BBC’s Pride and Prejudice starring Colin Firth that first aired last year in the UK. This swoony take, with its beachy escapism, should please contemporary audiences.
The New Pop (available on HBOGO)
Paolo Sorrentino took a less than easy path to victory on the way to the Vatican. The Young Pope (played by Jude Law) is relegated to a supporting role. And the New Pope was a delicate and sad old Englishman- the opposite of the man who came before him. Sorrentino, however, manages to find excitement in John Malkovich’s protagonist, such as his vain curiosity with celebrities and a keenness for bizarre fashion choices. The show is built on the foundation set by “The Young Pope”, and the combination of Law’s presence and Sorrentino’s humor helps to take the new season to new levels. The ability of the show to stand in its own merits, however, is even more impressive.
