The Best Shows on Netflix

One Piece

Luffy (Iñaki Godoy), on their quest to find the One Piece treasure and claim the title of King of the Pirates. With vibrant 2D visuals, the series captures the whimsical essence of the source material while delivering an engaging storyline.

Love Is Blind

Netflix's hit reality dating series is back for its fifth season, with 28 new contestants on a quest for love. Led once again by hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey, this season brings fresh faces and the age-old question: Is love truly blind? In the prior season, three couples found lasting love. Will this new group have the same success, or will they leave the experiment still single?

Everything Now

Sophie Wilde, known for "Talk to Me," shines in the unexpectedly humorous series "Everything Now." The show follows a British teenager (Wilde) as she returns to high school after recovering from an eating disorder, aiming to embrace the life she missed. With a talented ensemble cast, including Lauryn Ajufo and Vivienne Acheampong, and a delightful appearance by Stephen Fry, "Everything Now" cleverly blends serious themes with dark humour, drawing comparisons to "Heartstopper" and "Sex Education."

 

The Best Shows on Disney+

American Born Chinese

Based on Gene Luen Yang's graphic novel, is a captivating series blending mysticism and magic. It follows Ben Wang (Chang Can Dunk), a young Chinese American high schooler, thrust into an epic celestial battle with iconic figures from Chinese folklore. Creator Kelvin Yu (known for "Bob's Burgers") explores the blend of American culture and heritage, with action by Destin Daniel Cretton, writer, and director of "Shang-Chi." Featuring an amazing cast, including Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Stephanie Hsu from "Everything, Everywhere, All at Once," it's a must-watch!

Ahsoka

In the Star Wars universe, get ready for the thrilling eight-episode mini-series "Ahsoka," brought to life by creator Dave Filoni. Spun off from "The Mandalorian" and continuing the story from "Star Wars Rebels," Rosario Dawson returns as the iconic Jedi, Ahsoka, investigating new threats to the galaxy after "Return of the Jedi." Joining the fun are Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (from "Birds of Prey"), and Wes Chatham (known for "The Expanse"). It's a star-studded adventure in the world of Star Wars that you won't want to miss!

Moving

The star-studded Korean spy series has taken Disney+ by storm as the most-watched K-drama. The series follows a group of South Korean spies on a mission to protect their super-powered children from government agencies. After disappearing from the scene, these spies must now return to their former lives to defend their kids as a deadly assassin targets super-powered individuals.

 

The Best Shows on Neon

Somebody Somewhere

This show stands out with its exceptional heart, sharp wit, and genuine love for its entire cast. In its second season, it centres around Sam, a woman in her 40s who embarks on a journey to rediscover her singing voice and happiness. At its core, the show explores the growing friendship between Sam and her co-worker Joel (Jeff Hiller). Their dynamic navigates the challenges of approaching middle age while still dealing with emotional ups and downs. Despite its weighty themes, the show is uproariously funny and delightfully irreverent. It comes highly recommended.

Barry

Bill Hader's epic four-season journey in Los Angeles, reminiscent of "Reservoir Dogs," wrapped up on the same day as "Succession." Despite the competition, this season of "Barry" was its best yet, seamlessly blending elements from "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul" while maintaining its unique Hollywood charm. We can't wait to see what Hader has in store next, possibly a horror film!
