The Good Place, TV-14
If you’re a lover of sitcoms, add this to your watch list immediately. It follows Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristin Bell) as she navigates the afterlife. It stars an A+ cast, the unexpected twists keep you on the edge of your seat, and you won’t be able to stop laughing.
Stranger Things, TV-14
Sci-fi fans, this is for you. If you have somehow missed the Stranger Things boat, jump on! When Will Byers goes missing, his friends find more than they bargained for as they search for him. The series takes place in the 80’s (we love the nostalgia) in an Indiana small town. The intensity and mystery make that “watch next” button incredibly tempting. Season three came out last summer, so it’s time to get caught up!

The Good Doctor, TV-14

As he is unable to connect with those around him, he uses his medical gifts to save lives and defy the skepticism of his colleagues.
The Rookie, TV-14
This show is a crime drama starring everyone’s favorite “Castle” actor, Nathan Fillion. As the oldest rookie on the LAPD force, John Nolan is met with skepticism as he aims to fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer.

The Mandelorian, TV-14

The World According to Jeff Goldblum, TV-PG
Look at the world a little differently! This series looks at the most commonplace items (think shoes, ice cream, makeup, etc.) and takes a deep dive on their back story. With fascinating science and history connections, Jeff Goldblum turns the simplest things into interesting learning experiences.
Friday Night Lights, TV-14
If you’re not getting your sports fix, this series might help just a little.
