1. Search Party

The TBS show may seem like formula on paper; it’s got a core cast of New York millennials who are struggling and self-absorbed, but Alia Shawkat, John Early, Meredith Hagner, and John Paul Reynolds are an alchemical combination. What devotes the demonstrate its edge is how well it teeters on the ed of the macabre; Dory( Shawkat) becomes morbidly fascinated with a missing high school classmate to the point where the search consumes her life and thoughts. Season 2 deals with the fallout from a shocking finale and is as transfixing and perversely humorous as the first. We say from experience that you can binge a season in a day.

5. The Leftovers

Be warned: This show is heavy. But The Leftovers – about those left on the planet after two percent of the population mysteriously vanishes- deals remarkably with collective heartache and the exhausting journey to heal. You get the sense that this was the indicate Lost producer Damon Lindelof always wanted to make; haunting, calamitous, and cautiously spiritual. It pulls phenomenal performances from its cast, especially Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, and Christopher Eccleston, with no shortchanging Justin Theroux as the tortured Kevin Garvey. Does the end of life as we know it unavoidably lead to the end of the world?

7. The Americans

This might be a little too close to home what with the whole Russian collusion~ thing ~, but FX’s drama about Soviet spies in D.C. is nothing if not thought-provoking, and addictive to boot. Philip and Elizabeth Jennings are deep undercover, the very picture of wholesome, homegrown Americans- with two children born on U.S. soil. Hidden by the front of a travel agency where they both work is a legacy of devoted espionage on behalf of the Soviet Union- a reputation threatened when an FBI agent moves into the house next door.

9. Catastrophe

You might not think you’d enjoy expending seven and a half hours( that’s 18 24 -minute episodes) cooped up with a couple that alternates between bickering affectionately and bickering angrily. But that’s just because you haven’t ensure Catastrophe yet. Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney star as two people pushed together when a no-strings weekend hookup results in a pregnancy- and find that they rather like being together in spite of themselves. Crackling chemistry and cutting humor construct the central pairing a pleasure to watch, while a strong cast of recurring stars( including Carrie Fisher, Extras ‘ Ashley Jensen, and Black Mirror’ s Daniel Lapaine) livens up the rest of the universe. – Angie Han
