I feel like everyone on this app is very TV savvy so you guys probably already watch these but in case you're asleep, here are some great shows I feel are largely ignored:
  1. "The Leftovers"
    Ef4940a2 ee63 4d0d b25e a3888f94093f
    The best show on television, wrongfully labeled as "grief porn." It's about so much more than grief. Every week I am on the edge of my seat and my notions of faith, truth, and morality are challenged. It's incredible, Carrie Coon should win every acting award.
  2. "The Knick"
    C8e118b0 93a4 4084 b375 6464fb853e12
    The directing alone would make this show a masterpiece, but it's just one layer of what makes this show so great. You wouldn't expect a show set in an early 1900's hospital deal with issues of race and feminism, yet it does so effortlessly. "Get the Rope" is one of the best hours of television I've ever seen.
  3. "Sense8"
    Ddb6a83c c837 4c0e 82e9 d48a9f91b502
    The best way to enjoy this show is to stop trying to understand the SciFi elements and focus on the characters. I've read that they are "underdeveloped" and a few are but others, particularly Nomi, a trans woman, and Lito, a closeted Mexican movie star, are some of the most faceted characters I've seen on screen. I loved this show from start to finish.
  4. "Being Mary Jane"
    9abd25de 649d 4f85 b3a1 6f5075a9f75a
    This show seems to unfortunately be written off by the Wonder Bread white Hollywood critics because it's on BET, but Gabrielle Union is doing some of her best work, it's well-written and highly entertaining. Just juicy enough while still tackling the real issues professional women face today. It's on Netflix, you should watch.
  5. "Togetherness"
    5abf3b8c aed3 4710 9a2f 90c1b930efc5
    The Duplass brothers, Melanie Lynsky, Amanda Peet, Peter Gallagher... What more could you want?! A delightful, down to earth dramedy. Every character will win your heart.
  6. "Playing House"
    9ed00040 9593 41e6 b8cc cb0f42dbc193
    Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham are the comedy voices with "Property Brothers" sex fantasies we all needed. Plus Keegan Michael Key is there being THE CUTEST. I've loved this team since the brilliant but cancelled "Best Friends Forever." Love this show.
  7. "Black Mirror"
    Aa364a26 8790 4385 a1f3 546a36d6a8c0
    So wonderful and creepy, this British show is almost impossible to describe. Each episode is a different imagined future that's feels one step away from today in the most disturbing and interesting ways. On Netflix.
  8. "Manhattan"
    D64c8825 2de7 46eb 8c88 36a379f81a85
    This show is on WGN which I don't really know what it is, but it has an incredible cast and tells the story of the Manhattan project, when the US was developing the atomic bomb. It's great.
  9. "UnReal"
    833fe189 100b 44a5 bde2 fd166aab2e53
    An captivating inside look into "The Bachelor" with great performances by Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer. Don't write it off just because it's on Lifetime.
  10. "Halt and Catch Fire"
    51d0f64b 7c25 4222 a0e8 c3aafe2f3b7c
    I love this show, especially the women of this show. It's the best thing AMC has right now, sorry "Walking Dead." It fills the hole in my life left by "Mad Men."
  11. "Grace and Frankie"
    1ccaa07d 9476 4ed2 81ab 27f150101a27
    The best! Why isn't everyone talking about Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin?! And everyone else in the cast! The sets look like a Nancy Meyers movie and I love seeing women over 60's stories. So good and on Netflix!
  12. "Difficult People"
    244bfc4a d9aa 49c9 ab0d 63158d426f32
    If you like any of my lists you will love this show, as I am just a wannabe version of Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner. Plus it has Andrea Martin! On Hulu.
  13. "Crazy Ex Girlfriend"
    95a54f30 c270 48d0 b68b 2be4a392d89f
    This show just started and is already getting a lot of praise but I just need to reiterate that it is SO GREAT. It's hilarious, it's a musical, and the star is a star. I'm obsessed and I wish I wrote it.
  14. "Nathan For You"
    2eaf6a8f fce9 4c03 90e9 f2f0c1352c5f
    Makes me cringe and fall over with laughter. I love Nathan Fielder's deadpan humor, it's probably the show that makes me laugh the hardest out there right now.
