TV Show Recs?

Chemda seems to recommend TV shows a bunch and I thought we could start a running list of her recs/shows of a similar nature or style.

I just found "Shrill" on Hulu. It's Aidy Bryant's first post-SNL-fame show. I've only watched the first episode so far but it's been kinda wonderful. It's quirky and weird and deals with difficult topics right off the bat (that I won't mention as I don't want to give anything away). Point is, watch it and let me know what you think!

Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23 is Chemda's main rec. She also recs Bob's Burgers and Family Guy and Star Trek Picard and Community.

The best American recs from your old buddy Bucho of the last little while are Veep, Atlanta, Insecure and Broad City. New Girl is also delightful AF.

I also started watching SORRY. The first season is on Netflix now. I really like it.

I watched LOVE a couple times but Iím not sure everyone will love it. Not much happens. Itís very dialogue heavy. I really like it but it might be slow for some.

And of course bojack horseman and rick and morty.

I’ve watched Dont Trust the B several times, Chemda is right, it is an excellent show. I also enjoy Broad City and New Girl.

I’ve been meaning to get around to watching Veep but it seems like a heavy show. Is that true? Or am I just avoiding starting for no reason?

Never been able to get into adult cartoons, Chemda. I have some weird barrier I can’t seem to cross when it comes to watching a cartoon horse-human.

Veep's not heavy per se, but it's definitely more on the Seinfeld side of the deal than the Friends side. It's sharp as heck, the characters are mostly assholes and pretty much every line is some kind of insult. It's definitely less fun now than it was when it started, not because the quality has dropped but because real life has become even more ludicrous.

I just found "Better Things" on Hulu and I think it's great. I know that the first two seasons are co-written by Garbage Person Louie CK, but Pamela Adlon dumped him for the third season and wrote and directed it herself.
I think it's the best one yet.

if you love Star Trek: TNG, try The Orville. it’s Seth MacFarlane’s love letter to the series and it is fantastic.

I felt the same way. It looked so dumb. Why is he a bourse. Hennessy insisted I try it because he knew I would like it. That boy introduced me to a lot of cool shit.
