2024 Best TV Show Recommendations


Rachel recommended a German show on Netflix called Kleo. This unique show follows a female German assassin before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall. It offers a mix of humor, murder mystery, and a glimpse into the contrast between East and West Berlin. INTERNATIONAL PICK! 

Fargo Season Five

Fargo Season Five was another standout recommendation. The hosts praised the acting, particularly highlighting Juno Temple and Jennifer Jason Lee. The show tackles deep topics creatively while maintaining a touch of humor. MUST WATCH PICK!

Bob’s Burgers

For a lighthearted option, Janette suggested Bob’s Burgers. She highlighted a stellar episode titled “The Plight Before Christmas” that unexpectedly tugged at their heartstrings.  PICK!

UnXplained Season 4 on Netflix Specifically

William Shatner is 92 years old and is so good as the announcer and the espisodes are creepy good! OFF BEAT NUTTY PICK!

The New Look (New Entry) 

Just watched The New Look on Apple TV. About Coco Chanel and Christian Dior. The name of the show and description avoid saying it’s about Germany’s occupation of France and how Coco and Dior navigated that time. It’s a decent short watch. SHORT SERIES PICK 

True Detective: Night Country   (New Entry)

So watch it to see the great acting but skip through it to get the the end and be sure to google “what the hell is going on in true dective” because it is like um, well it’s crazy. WATCH SOME PICK

Constellation on Apple (New Entry)

Worth the watch but with some fast-forwarding involved. WATCH WITH FAST FORWARD and refreshing Apple TV pause glitch. At first I thought it was a creative choice but realized later it was a streaming problem.


 FEUD: Capote Vs. The Swans (New Entry)

Watch a couple of episodes to get the basic idea but it’s hard to stick with it. SKIP but also watch to see why!

Recommending any Kat Bowler and this 100 Blessings for Impert Days READ!
