Everyone knows the usual go-to recs for things to watch on Netflix. I'll try to find some stuff you may not have heard of.
  1. Anthony Jeselnik - Thoughts and Prayers
    Simply one of the funniest active stand-up comedians. He is dark, he is mean, and he knows that he is funny. Not for the faint of heart.
  2. Peaky Blinders
    A depression era drama from the BBC, Cilian Murphy shines as the kingpin of a British organized crime family. Tom Hardy joins season 2, and each season is only 6 episodes.
  3. Happy Valley
    If you enjoy the Coen Brothers classic film Fargo, you'll like this. It's British, a little more violent and intense, but very well acted and fast paced.
  4. Demitri Martin - Live (At the time)
    A series of one liners from a different type of comedian. He is original, witty and thinks outside the box.
  5. They Came Together
    A spoof of the typical romantic comedy, this movie stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler, as well as a ton of other funny stars. From the makers of Wet Hot American Summer, this is the funniest movie I've seen in a long time.
  6. Scrotal Recall
    This was my favorite show of 2014 besides maybe Nathan For You. If I say what it's about you won't watch it, so just trust me.
