It’s a heartwarming story about young love and pride, with excellent performances from the young cast. You’ll walk away with a huge grin and your soul feeling rather healed- there is still good in this world!

Moon Knight: 

Marvel has been delivering incredible shows of late but the recently released Moon Knight takes things to another level! The story follows a man with dissociative identity disorder who gets pulled into a dangerous mystery…oh, he’s also sharing a body with a mercenary!! It sounds wild, mind-bending and enthralling right?? Yes, it’s exactly that and much more! 

The Dropout:

It’s intriguing, well-acted and very compelling. Witness what it’s like when fame and ambition create a deadly mix that spirals out of control! 

The Best Shows on Amazon Prime Video

A Very British Scandal:

Love British dramas about intriguing scandals? Then you’ll love this one! It follows the highly publicised and notorious divorce of the Duke and Duchess of Argyll in 1963. With captivating performances from Claire Foy (The Crown) and Paul Bettany (WandaVision) plus a story that is filled with backstabbing, adultery and lies, this one makes for a very entertaining watch! 

The Wilds:

With its second season having just premiered, now is a great time to dive into this show that critics and fans are raving about! It follows a group of teenage girls who get trapped on a remote island but not all is as it seems… With a great ensemble cast, plenty of drama and shocking twists, this is one you need to check out!   

Outer Range:
Obsessed with Yellowstone?! Then you need to watch Outer Range! The show recently dropped and stars Josh Brolin as a rancher trying to protect his family and land. Things start to get strange though when a black void appears in the middle of the ranch. This is a science-fiction western that’ll leave your jaw dropped by the time the credits roll. What more could you ask for!

The Best Shows on Neon


The critically-acclaimed HBO show finally returns for its third season following Bill Hader’s Barry Berkman, a hitman who wants to be an actor. This show is at one moment hilarious and ridiculous and in the next deeply emotional and action-packed. The unique comedy-drama-action blend has ushered in a new way of storytelling that’s keeping audiences on the edge of their seat. You don’t want to miss it! 

The Staircase:

The show is based on the shocking true story of Kathleen Peterson’s suspicious death and the ensuing trial and documentary that was made about her husband and key suspect Michael Peterson. Colin Firth and Toni Collette lead the star-studded cast in this HBO telling of a story about family conflict, deceit and murder?? We’ll let you be the judge of that!  


Donald Glover’s hit show has just come back for its third season that follows the unique lives of three men trying to make it in life and the music business.
