The Oscar-winning producer John Ridley of “12 Years a Slave,” and Carlton Cuse, the co-creator of “Lost,” joined forces to create “Five Days at Memorial,” which chronicles the appalling truths that bled out after the ravaging Hurricane Katrina had its way in New Orleans. One gets to take a peek into a hospital for five days that followed after the natural phenomena wreaked havoc and left the city without any power.
Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals are attempting to clean up the natural disaster’s mess in the intensive care unit. This biographical drama sheds light on the horrific scenes that came out during this period. This show is certainly not for the faint-hearted, so perhaps it’s better to only watch it if you can handle the despair that comes out of a no-win situation.
If you're looking for a bit of grim humor with some commonalities with "Dead to Me" and "Big Little Lies," look no further. Set in Ireland, "Bad Sisters" is a dark comedy that chronicles the lives of five sisters as they navigate life after the death of one of the siblings' husbands.
The show starts at the funeral and showcases the sisters as they all have incredibly different reactions to the loss. The story unfolds over two timelines, and besides all the dark wit, there is a lot of mystery, too. This is a captivatingly sharp series from the always-excellent Sharon Horgan, and it's bound to entertain anyone who gives it a go.
If you haven't watched this show, then you have most definitely heard about it. The ad campaigns for this production went through the roof, and that isn't always a recipe for success, but in this case, it was. With "Ted Lasso," Apple managed to claim ownership of plausibly the biggest streaming comedy yet.
The show managed to earn itself a mighty 11 Emmy Awards, including an Emmy for Best Comedy, Best Directing for a Comedy, and a few Best Actor in a Comedy Series awards. The main character, Ted Lasso, is portrayed by Jason Sudeikis, and he turns out to be the hero we never knew we needed. With its third and final season having aired in 2023, this is a binge-worthy show that no one should miss out on.
The Super Models
The biggest selling point for this show may be the fact that you'll get to spend four hours with some of the most beautiful ladies to ever exist on the planet. But this docuseries has a lot more to offer than that. "The Super Models" spotlights the extraordinary careers and lives of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington.
Viewers will get some never-before-seen footage that parades their walks to fame via the most candid interviews. They give a lot of insight into what happens behind the scenes in the cruel world of fashion as it blew up and entered the mainstream in the 90s. It's a great docuseries, but don't expect anything too deep.
Monarch: Legacy of Monsters
"Monarch: Legacy of Monsters" is an adventurous Sci-Fi series set after the battle between the Titans and Godzilla. This series started in 2023 and leads the cinematic monsterverse to the small screen by tracking the hidden cabal Monarch that studies and hunts massive unidentified terrestrial organisms (MUTOs).
Kurt Russel from "The Hateful Eight" plays the man tied to the Monarch in the existing timeline. Meanwhile, his actual real-life son Wyatt Russell plays the younger version of him during a flashback timeline. This series has a lot of monster potential thanks to the obliterating visuals, astounding set pieces, and an intriguing cast.
