Bojack Horseman, Season 6 – January 31st
Bojack Horseman started off as a show of just a bunch of comedic anthropomorphic animals. Albeit those with comedic timing and a flair for next level pun phrases. But the show has slowly evolved into being one of the most iconic animations that we’ve seen. Bojack Horseman is brilliantly written to mirror upon everyday life as well as the ridiculousness of Hollywood. From a celebrity getting cancelled due to mental illness, the show has found some way to weave heavy topics and fuse in comedy into it. Bojack Horseman returned early this year with the second part of the final season.
Locke & Key, Season 1 – February 7th
What better way to enjoy your quarantine than with some good old supernatural horror. Based on the comic book series by the same name the story follows three siblings discovering their ancestral home in Massachusetts. The children soon discover a number of mysterious keys throughout the house that can be used to unlock various doors in magical ways. However, they become aware of a demonic entity that is also searching for the keys. The Locke & Key series is peppered with Lovecraftian themes and a beautifully written family story.
Love Is Blind, Season 1 – February 13th
What’s a good TV list without some trashy reality TV? Throw in a social experiment, hard choices and Nick Lachey, obviously and you’ve got some binge-worthy TV. Now the concept of Love Is Blind is to see whether people can fall in love without actually seeing each other. The series puts thirty men and women through a series of dates in ‘pods’ where they talk through a wall. After the end of 10 days, a couple can decide to get engaged and then they’ll finally see each other. Drama right? Wait there’s more. The couple then needs to actually get married. So which couples actually make it through to the end? Is love really blind?. Well my advice, don’t think too much about it and enjoy the mindless TV.
Hunters, Season 1 – February 21st
The year is 1977 in New York City and we’re hunting Nazis. Based on the lives of real Nazi hunters in the mid-20th century and Operation Paperclip, the US government’s covert recruitment initiative after the war. Their plan was to import in 1,600 German scientists, engineers and technicians – including many former Nazis – to try and gain the US an edge over the Soviets in the cold war. But what if those Nazis try and create the Fourth Reich in the US? It stars the enigmatic Al Pacino, which is reason enough to watch Hunters imo.
Altered Carbon, Season 2 – February 27th
If you’re looking to watch a classic cyberpunk neo-noir show that the Blade Runner series brought to us, then maybe you might want to check out Altered Carbon. Set in the distant future where humans discover ancient alien technology, they’re able to set up a dominant galactic empire. In this society, a person can store their consciousness into a small disk that can be transmitted into another empty body on a different planet. I know, it’s a lot to process. However, if you’re interested in sci-fi action-adventure, then this show is for you. Expect a lot of violent packed episodes as it gets quite bloody in some of them.
