The Haunting of Hill House - Netflix
It’s been described as a deliciously spooky This Is Us. Both scary and well-done, The Haunting of Hill House was one of our favorite shows of the year. If you like your dramas on the scary side, you'll need to spend a night binge-watching this show.
Star Trek: Discovery - CBS All Access
The newest installment in the Star Trek franchise takes place about ten years before Captain Kirk's mission on the original series. Lead by mutineer/heroine Michael Burnham (played by Sonequa Martin-Green), this new crew has both brains and heart. Although it may leave fans arguing over specific plot points, it will never leave you bored or unengaged. Whether you are a long time fan of Trek or never watched an episode, you should check out this newest Star Trek series.
Orange is the New Black - Netflix
We had a love-hate thing going on with OITNB for a few years, but the sixth season was a successful attempt at breathing some creativity back into it. With decreased reliance on the relationship between Alex and Piper, what we got was the show's most coherent arc yet.
Homecoming - Amazon
Homecoming has a terrific showrunner and creator, and it's based on a unique podcast. Best of all, it has a fantastic cast that never fails to leave you in doubt as to their character's motives or understanding of the issues. Watching it once isn't enough. The second time around you're enlightened even further!
GLOW - Netflix
The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling has a great cast, fantastic writing, and unique characters all wrapped up in the spandex-laden, glittery world of women's wrestling. If you haven't checked it out yet, you won't want to miss it.
Titans - DC Universe
The first season was exciting and action-packed with solid performances. Even if you aren't familiar with the comics, you'll still find yourself engaged and eager for what's to come.
