15 - Fleabag (Season 2)
In my opinion, the Second season of Fleabag was not as good as the first one. But it was still Super fresh, interesting and well written. The whole season was so awkward and uncomfortable. But also brilliant, hilarious, heartbreaking and unexpectedly moving. I like how the show finds humor in very dark places. It is so smart and well crafted.
Everything that Phoebe Waller-Bridge does is outstanding.
14 - Los Espookys (Season 1)
Los Espookys is a cross between a Spanish-language soap opera, an absurdist comedy sketch show, and an Adult-Swim cartoon. But somehow, it all comes together pretty perfectly. So Incredibly original! The show is surreal and good-hearted. Its intentional camp and most of the time, it feels like a love letter to old horror movies. I’m a big Fred Armisen fan and I think he created another awesome show. Los spooky is overflowed with talent as well. Really great cast. But Ana Fabrega steals every scene she's in.
Some people will complain about the subtitles. But I have no problem with that. I think the show is actually helping me work on my Spanish.
13 - The Other Two (Season 1)
This is a very funny and contemporary Show. The premise is so well thought out and the idea of being siblings of a teenage superstar is hilarious. The show's lead characters are unlikable, self-sabotaging and self-centered but I totally love them. The Other Two gets better with each episode and continues to surprise. I also really enjoyed all the running jokes and gags on the show.
Really great play on internet media fame!
12 - Russian Doll (Season 1)
This show really delivered, and I was not expecting anything special at all. This is definitely one of the best shows I’ve seen on Netflix. Writing, plot, and acting are all solid. I also loved the casting. Natasha Lyon basically plays herself and she is awesome in it. The storyline will bend your mind. They took a relatively simple premise and just made it beautiful. I thought it'd be funny like Groundhog Day. But I was pleasantly surprised by the sci-fi elements of the whole thing.
Amazingly creative and funny. I want more and can’t wait for the second season.
11 - Barry (Season 2)
What an impressive sophomore season for this show. Season 2 was such an unstoppable roller coaster. It masterfully mixes intense drama and incredible comedy. Barry is twisted and hilarious. The show is very well-paced, has great writing and amazing character development. Bill Hader and Henry Winkler are so good. I am so happy to finally see Winkler getting the attention he deserves.
Bring on season 3.
10 - Euphoria (Season 1)
Euphoria tackles adolescence and high school experience in the 21st century. It captures the spirit of this generation in a raw, and unapologetic way. Some heavy subject matter and one of the most accurate portrayals of drug abuse and depression I've seen in a show recently. Technically, this show is fantastic. Cinematography, direction, editing, acting are all superb. Zendaya does an incredible job. Her performance is simply incredible.
Euphoria is amazing and worth the hype.
9 - What We Do In The Shadows (Season 1)
I love the original What We Do in Shadows the movie, from 2014. And to be honest, I was skeptical about this show. I was convinced this would be garbage. But I was so wrong. WWDITS is so clever and fresh. It explores and expands upon the universe the movie created and it is absolutely hilarious from start to finish.
I also loved all the amazing cameos. I just can't get enough.
8 - Watchmen (Season 1)
As someone who is a massive fan of the graphic novel. I absolutely loved this show. What a great continuation of the Watchmen universe. It has strong storytelling and shares DNA with the Alan Moore source material. I liked the creative chances Damon Lindelof took with this universe. It is far better than I was expecting, and it was handled perfectly.
The writing, production values, and acting are excellent. Beautiful cinematography, killer score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross and some sharp commentary on recent events.
Ignore the haters and trolls, Watchman is a must-see!
7 - Mindhunter (Season 2)
This is a very intriguing show. Season 2 builds on the first and managed to get even better. The subject matter is disturbing and scary; A dark but interesting look into criminal profiling. But I love the authenticity and the attention to historical characters and details. The pace is great. The cinematography is awesome and the writing superb. The way the writers intertwine the various storylines made me want to keep watching the show. Also, the show did a great job with the production design. They nailed the early 80s look and feel!
Give me season 3 soon.
6 - Chernobyl (Miniseries)
This miniseries is a dramatized story based on the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. And documents the horrors and dangers of a nuclear meltdown. Chernobyl is probably one of the best miniseries I have ever seen. Such a good take on the tragedy that happened in the 1980s right in the heart of the Cold War. The story is heartbreaking. And showcased how the USSR lied to its own people and demonstrated the problems of living and operating under Soviet rule; Chaos, unprepared state, cover ups and corruption. Just like in Mindhunter, the production design was on point. The recreation of the communist era is amazing.
5 - Dark (Season 2)
What a show. I've seriously never seen anything like this. Dark is an intense, suspenseful and engaging show. I signed on to watch a small-town's creepy sci-fi mystery. But the show grew out to involve time travel and the mind-bending, cyclical time-line. In terms of the concept and plot, Dark is by far one of the best series I’ve ever seen. It keeps you hooked searching for answers, yet the questions keep piling up,
Season 2 of Dark was definitely one of the best TV show seasons I've seen this year.
4 - BoJack Horseman (Season 6, Part 1)
BoJack Horseman is ending, and it Breaks my heart that this will be the final season. But I always prefer to see a show ending while it's still awesome than see it dragging for years losing all its qualities. Anyway, this is an extremely solid first half of this final season. BoJack continues to be an amazing, funny, poignant, show. Gut-wrenching comedy. It is so masterfully written. I cannot wait to see what happens in part 2.
BoJack Horseman is the very definition of Must-See TV.
3 - The Deuce (Season 3)
Season three of The Deuce wraps up everything about as perfectly as possible. This last season really brought the show to a new level. I never thought this show would be this good. But It was really really great. I was not expecting that much emotion from a show about the early days of the porn industry. But hey, they totally pulled this off. That final sequence with Vincent walking around Times Square was so heartbreaking. His fate was worse than death. Probably one of the greatest endings to a TV show I’ve ever seen. Such a shame this show didn’t get the recognition it deserved. The Deuce is like Candy’s movie, it will get the recognition it deserves in time. Kudos to HBO for letting David Simon complete the story despite low ratings.
The Deuce is an underrated classic.
2 - Succession (Season 2)
I love Succession so much! The show has so much family drama but at the same time, it is so funny, witty and smart. A really interesting look into the world of wealth, power and Machiavellian corporatism. It’s writing and acting is simply incredible. And I really enjoy the amazingly depicted power struggles. It is a weird thing to say but, I love how most of the characters are totally immoral and despicable. What a stunning ensemble cast. Also, Jeremy Strong is absolutely killing it as Kendall. Is it a comedy? A drama? I don’t know. All I know is, If the show keeps up with this level of quality, it will go into the greatest of all-time category.
Cannot wait for season 3.
1 - Mr. Robot (Season 4)
The fourth and final season of Mr. Robot was Absolutely amazing. The show was always intriguing and visually stunning, but season 4 was even more exciting to watch. It had award-worthy performances from every actor involved and the chemistry between Malek and Slater was unbelievably good. The moody atmosphere and eccentricity that made the show so great were present in every episode. And each one of them left me anxiously looking for clues that could help me to understand what was going on. Sam Esmail deserves a lot of props for the incredible writing, direction and leadership he provided to the series.
This was an epic final season. Mr. Robot will go down as one of the best shows on TV history.
