17 Shows You Really Just Need To Fucking Watch Already

You keep seeing them on Netflix and Hulu and being like, "Eh, maybe later." BUT YOU SHOULD WATCH THEM NOW.

Posted on

1. Broad City

Comedy Central

This show right here is so fucking good that it's a travesty if you're not watching it. Abbi and Ilana will sum up everything you've ever thought about life in your twenties in hilarious ways. The show is produced by Amy Poehler and it's also feminist as hell.

Watch this shit right here on Hulu. ALL episodes are currently available.

2. Orphan Black

BBC America

Ohhhhh man. You want some fucking intrigue in your life? Watch Orphan Black and get ready to be all like, "Oh SHIT I did not see that coming!" Tatiana Maslany is absolutely brilliant in multiple roles, as she plays a bunch of clones created in a top-secret project. Season 2 is a little slow but the rest of it is top-notch.

Watch this shit on Amazon Prime; the first two seasons are free.

3. Teachers

TV Land

You haven't seen Teachers yet? Ohhhhhh hot DAMN are you in for a fucking treat. This show follows a group of teachers at an elementary school who are hilariously inappropriate roughly 90% of the time, so you can see how it would be funny as hell. It's produced by Alison Brie and written by/starring an all-female comedy group, and it's rare in television for a show to have so many women on staff so SUPPORT THIS SHIT.

Watch this shit right here Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/9:30 CT on TV Land. You can watch the pilot for free here.

4. Jessica Jones

Marvel/Netflix

Maybe you heard the title and you were like, "I don't know who that is." Or maybe you know a little about it, but you're like, "I don't like superhero shows." Well, you need to turn that attitude around and watch this show because it's so fucking good. Krysten Ritter plays a private eye with superpowers whose life gets even more complicated when a dangerous villain from her past shows up. It's an amazing detective show, with superhero and thriller elements.

Watch this shit right here on Netflix. All episodes are available.

5. Broadchurch

ITV

You probably saw this on your Netflix homepage about a thousand times and you thought, "Looks like a boring British show, I'll pass." YOU THOUGHT WRONG, SON. Broadchurch is an AMAZING British show about detectives in a small town investigating the death of a boy. It'll keep you guessing until the very last episode, and when you find out who did it you'll be like, "Holy SHIT color me surprised."

Watch this shit right here on Netflix. All episodes are available, but Season 1 is the good one.

6. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

The CW

Need something a little lighter, with less murder? Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is one of the funniest fucking shows on TV right now and it has practically zero murder! Rachel Bloom includes hilarious musical numbers that brilliantly sum up what it's like being a woman and/or person in today's world, and she won a goddamn Golden Globe for her performance, so you KNOW she's good.

Watch this shit right here on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/7 CT on CW. The most recent five episodes are available on Hulu.

7. Peaky Blinders

Netflix/BBC Two

Think a show about London street gangs in the 1920s would be boring? WRONG. Peaky Blinders is some seriously good shit: You get the crime angle, Cillian Murphy is badass, and Season 1 has some really interesting side plots about PTSD following World War I if you like your shows all historical and stuff.

Watch this shit right here on Netflix. All episodes are available.

8. Luther

BBC One

Speaking of badasses, have you SEEN Idris Elba in Luther? This character is so good you're going to want a fucking cardboard cutout of him in your living room to talk to when you're feeling down. The mysteries on this show are almost Sherlock-level brilliant, which means it's better than 99% of the other detective shows out there. Plus, Idris Elba with his accent? Yup.

Watch this shit right here on Netflix. Episodes from the first three seasons are available.

9. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Fox

Do you like your detective shows to be funnier? Well THIS FUCKING SHOW RIGHT HERE IS HILARIOUS. It was created by the guys behind Parks & Recreation (which should also be on this list but I'm assuming you've already seen it because if you haven't you've made a terrible mistake with your life), so you know it's good. Andy Samberg won an Emmy for this role. Shit's for real.

Watch this shit right here on Hulu. All episodes up to the current season are available.

10. Full Frontal With Samantha Bee

TBS

Hey, remember when Jon Stewart was still on The Daily Show? And remember when Samantha Bee did regular correspondent segments and fucking SLAYED every single one? Well, now she has her own show on TBS and it's just as amazing as everything she's ever done. If you've been missing the old Daily Show days, this will make it all better.

Watch this shit right here Mondays at 10:30 p.m. ET/9:30 CT on TBS. Previous episodes are available on TBS.com with a cable login.

11. Catastrophe

Amazon

If you're tired of romantic comedies that are all the same damn thing over and over, then you need to watch this show RIGHT NOW. It stars Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan as a couple who get pregnant after a one-week fling and have to try to make things work. Their banter is so charming in a real sort of way. WATCH IT.

You can watch this shit right here on Amazon Prime. Season 2 is coming in April!

12. Mr. Robot

USA / Via mrrobotquotes.com

Man, if you've ever felt like the world is bullshit, then this show is for you. Rami Malek plays Elliot, a hacker who goes down a serious rabbit hole when a hacking ring tries to recruit him to take down a major corporation. It's some serious mindfuckery and you're going to love it.

Watch this shit right here...well, you can only watch it through your cable company for now. But Amazon has secured the streaming rights and should offer it soon.

13. Jane the Virgin

The CW

This show is charming as FUCK and everyone in it is pretty much brilliant. It plays off of telenovela tropes beautifully, but you don't have to be a telenovela fan to "get it." It's no surprise that Gina Rodriguez won a Golden Globe AND an Emmy for her role on the show.

Watch this shit right here on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/8 CT on The CW. Recent episodes are available on Hulu.

14. The Americans

FX

Most spy thrillers are about American spies. Not this one. This is about Russian spies living in America right in the middle of the Cold War. This shit is TENSE and also Keri Russell is there and wears a lot of wigs. It's pretty much amazing.

Watch this shit right here Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/9 CT on FX. Seasons 1–3 are available on Amazon Prime.

15. BoJack Horseman

Netflix

Animated shows? That shit's for kids, right? NO, DUMMY. BoJack Horseman has some serious messages about depression and life and adulthood and you should watch it promptly because it's also really fucking funny.

Watch this shit right here on Netflix.

16. Man Seeking Woman

FXX

Yeah, it's a show about a guy looking for love. Sounds boring. But it's not, because Man Seeking Woman is actually one of the most unique and interesting comedies on TV right now. Like, you know how if a person you like tells you they're getting married and it feels like your heart exploded? Well, on this show Jay Baruchel's heart actually fucking explodes.

Watch this shit right here on Hulu. All episodes are currently available.

17. Black Mirror

Channel 4

Hey, you know how Twilight Zone was all dark and twisty and shit? Well say hello to Black Mirror. It's darker and twistier and throws in some commentary about modern society and technology while it's at it. Get your sleep in before watching, because you'll be up nights thinking about this one.

Watch this shit right here on Netflix.
