There’s so many options when it comes to TV viewing these days, and it’s easy for great shows to slip by. Here’s five you must catch-up on – put them on the top of your list!
For All Mankind (Apple TV)
What would have happened if Russia beat America to the moon in 1969? That’s the premise behind this incredibly well shot Apple TV show, which has just wrapped up airing its third season.
This isn’t just a ‘space show’ and you certainly don’t have to be a space geek to enjoy it. It develops its characters exceptionally well and the way it handles its time jumps are first class.
As We See It (Amazon Prime Video)
Some bad news for ‘As We See It’ fans this week with news that the show won’t be returning for a second season, a real shame given the quality of its first outing.
That doesn’t mean it’s not worth catching up on its first season, which follows twentysomething roommates on the autism spectrum, navigating the challenges of love and live.
This Is Us (Amazon Prime Video)
Like many in Australia, you may have caught the odd episode of ‘This Is Us’ over the years as you tried to navigate the often confusion free-to-air schedule on Channel 10. The good news is that the entire series is now available on Amazon.
This is without question one of the best network TV dramas of the last decade, and its emotional finale earlier this year will go down in TV history as one of the best. It is a beautiful show, and well worth the investment.
Better Call Saul (Stan)
Seriously, if you didn’t jump on to the ‘Better Call Saul’ bandwagon this year, you’re missing out. And while having seen ‘Breaking Bad’ offers some extra joy when watching the series, it does still work as a stand-alone show.
Many ‘Breaking Bad’ fans opted not to continue with ‘Better Call Saul’ after its first few episodes, but it emerged into a show that rivals its predecessor. It is without question one of the best shows you’ll dive into; the final season in particular is incredible.
The White Lotus (Foxtel)
Season 2 is about to land so there’s no better time than now to catch up with ‘The White Lotus’ on Foxtel or Binge. This black comedy was one of the real highlights of 2021 and recently took home a swag of Emmy Awards.
Australia’s Murray Bartlett is the true star of this sensational show, which follows stressed-out resort manager Armond as he deals with a range of difficult, and sometimes troubled, guests.
