In 1980s Dublin, a teen whose family is falling apart transfers to a tough school, where he forms a rock band to fit in and win a girl's attention.
Forget La La Land – this tale of Dublin kids forming a band in the 80s has the best original songs in recent memory. And lines like “no woman can truly love a man who listens to Phil Collins” will have you busting a gut while tapping your toes.
A virginal young woman's routine medical exam abruptly transforms her life into a story as complicated and dramatic as the telenovelas she loves.
Jane's lovely and all, but the best character on this show is the "Latin Lover Narrator." He not only keeps us up to speed on the telenova's many twists - he puts his own saucy spin on them. He's so good, the guy behind the voice has been nominated for two Emmys.
When a young boy vanishes, a small town uncovers a mystery involving secret experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one strange little girl.
The kids make this show great. Not just freaky Eleven, but the whole pack of nerdy boys and a teenage girl who’s realistically pretty, as opposed to Gucci-gorgeous. The show takes care to consider their thoughts and moods as the crazy plot unfolds, which is what keeps you grounded and hooked.
Neurotic lawyer Rebecca bumps into her high school boyfriend on the street and pursues him across the country on a misguided quest for true love.
Rebecca is a stunning character: smart, perky and crazy as heck. And not in a cute way. She can be selfish and cruel, yet she’s impossible to hate thanks to Rachel Bloom’s charisma and those sidesplitting song & dance numbers.
A medical student-turned-zombie tries to retain her humanity by eating brains at the morgue and finds she has an uncanny new gift for solving crimes.
If you miss Veronica Mars and are turned off by the joyless Walking Dead, you'll love iZombie: a surprisingly warm show about an undead, wisecracking mortician and her clueless (but still sweet) friends. Their lively banter spackles over the sometimes lackluster plots.
This Emmy-nominated prequel to Breaking Bad follows small-time attorney Jimmy McGill as he transforms into morally challenged lawyer Saul Goodman.
Even if Saul was your least favourite character on Breaking Bad, give him a chance. His backstory here is quieter, strangely heartbreaking and infinitely easier to root for than Walter White’s. Bob Odenkirk’s a multifaceted actor, and he’s surrounded by a prism of talented equals.
New Yorker Dev takes on such pillars of maturity as the first big job, a serious relationship, and busting sex offenders on the subway.
There are sitcoms, and then there are slices of life so achingly observed that you laugh in spite of yourself. Aziz Ansari spins satisfying vignettes from parents, racism, dating – while telling a larger romantic story that begs to be continued.
Blinded as a young boy, Matt Murdock fights injustice by day as a lawyer and by night as the Super Hero Daredevil in Hell's Kitchen, New York City.
Most superhero movies and shows are overstuffed: too many crowd scenes and big action set pieces. Daredevil is surprisingly intimate by comparison. Its many quiet conversations make it feel like a play. So when our blind hero beats bad guys to a bloody pulp, it's that much more jarring – and awesome.
Re-creating the dawn of the personal computer era, this digital drama tracks the fates of an industry visionary and his brilliant colleagues.
Get past the slow, more male-centric first season and glory in the friendship and business partnership between Donna and Cameron, ladies whose originality and verve make Halt and Catch Fire a creative triumph.
