4. Dave

Super Deluxe / Via YouTube

This dark comedy is created by “Marcel The Shell’s” Dean Fleischer-Camp and produced by Super Deluxe, leading purveyor of bizarre viral videos. It stars Nathan Fielder (“Nathan For You”) as a recently-fired divorcee, whose psychic tells him that he has a “black stone, like a rock, growing” in his chest. If he doesn’t get rid of it, his body will de-compose in five weeks. Fleishcher-Camp’s trademark is all over the deadpan vocal inflections — consistently neutral across the board — and the retro-looking sets, which are just weird enough to be unsettling without going over the top. With an eerie score reminiscent of “Twin Peaks” and Fielder’s vacant hangdog eyes, “David” takes cringe-comedy to another level. Watch it here.

5. Humdrum

Greenhorn Productions / Via Stream Now PRO

A comedy series set and filmed in the oppressively pleasant and mundane county of ‘Dorset’ in the south of England.

They suddenly find themselves dealing with drug dealers and attempting to negotiate life and death situations with only their knowledge of popular culture to help them. Watch it here.
