The ever original Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle burst onto our screen last year with their hilarious take on adolescence, and they’re back. In its second season, the show takes a slightly darker turn into some of the more difficult aspects of tweenhood and friendships.
There’s also more input from the moms of the show, as well as a deliciously complex arc about the girls’ new frenemy. If you grew up in the early 2000s, you will appreciate the show’s hyper level of accuracy.
Lovecraft Country (Best)
JJ Abrams and Jordan Peele joined forces to create this bold new HBO series. The story follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) who journeys on a cross-country road trip with his friend and uncle.
Things take a turn when they find themselves confronted by the awful racial terrors that plagued America during the 1950s, except it's a lot worse than they thought because, in this world, these racists are actual monsters.
Taste the Nation with Padma Lakshmi (Best)
Padma Lakshmi is really the only person you can trust when it comes to a culinary journey of the entire nation. The tasty adventure reveals the subtleties of your favorite foods and their diverse origins. It's an incredible lesson on the things we take for granted, even something as a simple hotdog.
The Hulu show reveals just how much a melting pot America really is and how the country is really one giant food experiment.
The Boys (Best)
The show follows a world where superheroes are commodified into action figures and take part in heroic publicity stunts so that the powerful corporation that owns them can market and monetize on them.
Let's be real, who doesn't love superheroes misbehaving? "The Boys," based on the comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, introduces an eclectic cast of super-natural humans. Ahead of the show's premiere, Amazon renewed "The Boys" for a third season.
I Know This Much is True (Best)
Mark Ruffalo outdoes himself in this one, twice! Playing identical twin brothers, Ruffalo does some serious work in this heavy HBO drama. The story follows Dominick who is tasked with the impossible job of helping his twin brother Thomas deal with his paranoid schizophrenia.
As Thomas's condition worsens, Dominick uncovers secrets about his family history, as well as the facility that seems to have a negative impact on his condition. The six-episode series directed by Derek Cianfrance ("Blue Valentine") is filled with heartfelt sorrow and is a testament to incredible storytelling.
