You Could Be Missing Out On 2020’s Best Shows: Watch These Six
We've been dealing with the coronavirus pandemic for more than a few months, and by now, you're probably thinking you've reached the end of your streaming services. You've probably binged every new show on Netflix (whether it looked good or not), rewatched The Office for the tenth time, and moaned and groaned after flipping through your cable channels to no avail.
But what if I told you that you could be missing out on some of the best shows of the year? Maybe, just maybe, you haven't even heard of these.
Here are my top picks. Add them to your watchlist and give 'em a try. You won't regret it.
If you need some across-the-board feels in your life, Love Life is what you're looking for. Anna Kendrick will make you laugh, cry and go "awwwwww" throughout the whole series, and before you know it, you've watched all ten episodes and downed a bottle and a half of Merlot... It's fine. You're fine. Everything's fine.
Watch Love Life on HBO Max.
For All Mankind
You don't even have to be super into space or the history of the Cold War to be absolutely fascinated by For All Mankind. This show plays off of what would have happened if the Soviet Union made it to the moon first. America's response? Be the first to put a woman on the moon. For All Mankind is an adventure and a drama, full of heartfelt, raw emotion. You've got to start this one. Immediately.
Watch For All Mankind on Apple TV.
You probably heard about or maybe even watched Cheer back when it first debuted on Netflix, but it's too great to not include in this list. Cheer follows the nationally-ranked Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas and not only are the athletes talented and hard-working beyond belief, but their stories are also just nothing short of inspirational. Turn on this series and you'll be cheering the whole time.
Watch Cheer on Netflix.
Love on the Spectrum
Forget The Bachelor, Big Brother, Survivor, and Love is Blind. Love on the Spectrum may be the best reality TV show of all time. Yep, I said it. The series follows real-life people on the autism spectrum as they search for love. Their unfiltered emotions as they navigate romantic relationships is eye-opening and admirable. We need more reality shows that show just that: reality. Major kudos to Love on the Spectrum.
Watch Love on the Spectrum on Netflix.
The Morning Show
The cast in incredible. The acting is incredible. Everything about The Morning Show is incredible. The first episode picks up just as a national morning show news host is fired amidst sexual abuse allegations. The fallout and search for truth that then ensues is truly mesmerizing and so profoundly displayed by Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell and so many others.
Watch The Morning Show on Apple TV.
Even if you're not a fan of or are unfamiliar with rapper Lil Dicky, this is a great watch. While it's kind of hard to describe, DAVE is a scripted documentary series that follows the events leading up to rapper Lil Dicky's rise to fame. It's witty, quirky, and every so often, it'll hit you right in the feels. I must say, I binged DAVE in less than 48 hours, so if you give it a try, prepare to get hooked.
*Disclaimer: While the trailer below for DAVE is safe for work, kids, etc., the show itself may not be. Proceed (watching) with caution.
Watch DAVE on Hulu.
