Multiple times a week, our TV and movie experts will list the top ten streaming options for you to queue up. We didn’t do it strictly based on reviews or cumulative streaming hits (though yes, we’ve scoured streaming sites for charts and ratings), but on those really noteworthy picks in the churning sea of content. After all, there’s a lot out there, and your time is precious.
Tie: 10. Bear (FX Series Streaming on Hulu)
Season 1 had a long tail as a breakout hit, and if you’ve successfully resisted this intense portrayal of kitchen-based drama, it’s time to drop the fight. Not even an exploding toilet can stop Jeremy Allen White’s Cami and the other chefs from delivering at their sandwich shop, and while there’s still a huge question hopefully answered in season 2, the show is also a snowball to watch Ball alone can take on the (delightful) pressure of rediscovering the story twice. Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Ayo Edebiri still don’t get enough credit, and these cameos (no spoilers) will really blow your mind.
Tie: 10. Jurassic world domination (Universal Movies streaming on Amazon Prime and Apple TV+)
Well, not everything that’s popular is a thump, and that’s fine. It’s a little odd that this sequel is dominated by locusts, but the movie is still a blockbuster you can enjoy in your own living room. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return with OG stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum for a final reunion. For whatever reason, these characters will never learn to stop playing with dinosaurs because “life will find a way” to destroy us all. This short-sighted struggle never tires people to stop watching.
9. Reservation dog (FX Series Streaming on Hulu)
The show was a great win, roaring in the second season mode, with an Indigenous showrunner, writer, cast and crew all telling their stories the way they wanted to tell. Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi’s main gangster is still in rural Oklahoma (shooting in Muskogee and Tulsa) in this ridiculously low-risk criminal dodging ridiculous rivals and trying to somehow and someday arrive Weave in California’s story.
8. paper girl (Amazon Prime Series)
This adaptation (Brian Vaughn’s comic series) is slightly more forgiving of some characters than the source material, and Stranger Things Fans will love it and will love it yellow jacket Devotees who can’t wait to learn more about their past and future, are twisted and wrapped within themselves. Here we have more kids riding bikes in the 1980s, but they’re leaping in time to meet their future selves, and not everything is going as expected. Sci-fi is not as good as the story itself, which revolves around friendship and the importance of not losing sight of inner dialogue while saving the world.
7. Power Book III: Raising Kanan (The Starz series is also streaming on Hulu)
50 Cent’s hit saga will continue in the second season of the spinoff. This round is all about the bound family ties that have been complicated by the expansion of the drug business, the private lives of brothers and mothers, and more crackdowns on the family business from record labels. Trust issues abound, and the inner drive becomes unimaginable. 50 Cent is also currently shopping his creations for future seasons, so stay tuned for the show.
6. Harley Quinn (HBO Max series)
The show will reportedly not be potentially affected by the Warner Bros. discovery, and hopefully Harry, Shark King, Ivy and others will all appear in future seasons. In the meantime, get together for more of Hariway and enjoy how the show is packed with more raucous jokes than you’d expect from an animated series that many people slept with a few years ago. Goodbye Gritty Gotham, hello glorious profanity, bat-filled (on a few notes) mayhem.
5. Beavis and Butt-Head by Mike Judge (Paramount+ series)
These slackers are still everything you need them to be: brainless, basically harmless idiots who won’t change anyway. Thank God for keeping the brand strong. Mike Judge’s music video fans will miss them dearly, and it’s simply glorious news that they have nothing new to bring to the table. Don’t call it a reboot (thank you, LL Cool J), these guys have been in our consciousness all these years, all cheering the Cornholio spirit. Maybe invite some Daria as a cameo as well.
4. prey (Hulu Movie)
Fast, low, dirty, and a total heroine’s badass.This predator Franchising has arguably never been better. And don’t mess with a female Comanche, she’s not just battling alien creatures who want to kill everyone. She also fought against those who wanted colonialism to take over her tribe, and then the forces of nature. She’s done her job, okay, but luckily, she’s serious.
3. Only murders in the building (Gourd series)
Is it the finale again? almost. This will likely be Steve Martin’s last project before retirement, and he and Martin Short are popular here. Don’t sleep on a Selena Gomez show. The Emmys say the same thing about her as her entire career in Hollywood, but if you want more of her irresistible, sometimes deadpan magic, head over to HBO Max. Selena + Chef episodes.
2 Better call Saul (AMC series streaming on AMC+)
Holy hell, this prequel (and this universe) is coming to an end and none of us are ready for it. Jimmy/Saul/Gene’s fate is still up in the air, Kim Wexler isn’t doing well, but she’s alive, this ending will likely destroy us all, but at least we know that Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are still next in the timeline . Let’s have more Cinnabon, Cinnabon, Cinnabon, while hoping Kim is somehow happy because she’s lost that baggage, but let’s be real: there might be some incarceration for the former and mutually chaotic duo .
1. sand man (Netflix series)
Finally, Neil Gaiman’s legendary and tragic comic series – beloved by the Legion – arrives in breathtaking glory. If you’re worried that this three-year-old adaptation will disappoint, you can let go of that fear. The whole project (so far) was surprisingly worth the wait, and “The Voice of Her Wings” turned out to be the most beautiful TV episode of the year. Tom Sturridge plays Morpheus in all his angular glory, while Kirby Howell-Baptiste is known for his death. This is just the beginning of the ensemble cast that really brings it, so enjoy this gorgeous tapestry full of mythology that floats like a dream.
