    "It came out like four years ago, but it's about this English teacher who goes back in time to prevent the assassination of JFK in the hopes of creating a better future for America. I've never heard anyone talk about it, but it’s worth checking out. It’s based off of a book by Stephen King."

    "It only got three seasons and that's an absolute tragedy. Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner created such original and relatable characters that hated the world around them. There wasn't a single episode that didn't make me laugh out loud."

    "'70s Broadway was just as problematic and dramatic as you’d imagine, but I loved watching Chicago (my favorite musical) get made. Absolutely worth watching."

    "THIS IS THE MOMENT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR! Y’ALL NEED TO STOP SLEEPING ON ELEMENTARY! It is an iconic adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, but with a completely different setting. You will be crying, laughing, and so immersed in the entire plot. It is such a wonderful series and it saddens me that so few people know about it!

    "It just became available to stream on Hulu. I never thought I'd be so invested in a show about baseball, but it's about a woman being the first to make it to the MLB. It's really good."

    "It's an awesome show that nobody seems to be talking about. Aidy Bryant from SNL is the star and it is a great show, it has similar vibes to Girls or Sex and the City, but is far more realistic."

    "John Green and his fans waited SO LONG for that adaptation and it was well worth the wait. It’s such a good look at the way grief affects us and it's an excellent coming-of-age story. I highly recommend."

    "If you’ve ever liked a soap opera of any kind, be prepared to be up all night trying to stop watching. Every episode ends in an awesome cliffhanger. My dad, who’s never watched a show with a teenager in it in his life, binged all of it in a few days. Excellent bilingual show that I’ve literally never seen written about anywhere. Just took a chance on it and couldn’t stop watching."

    "I can't believe that Buzzfeed is sleeping on this show. It's one of the best things I have seen. It's set in an alternative world where witches have become part of society and protect it. The details are amazing. The cinematography is gorgeous, the writing is excellent, and the cast is beyond talented. And it has a lesbian lead character, which is still a rare thing to see nowadays."

    "It's really sweet. I love the story. It’ll make you laugh and cry but appreciate the family you have. I loved it and watched it weekly when it was being released. Plus, there’s a lot of great representation in it that isn’t forced into the show — it's just a part of it."
