Hiya, loved the video and all the reccomendations. Just one little thing... you may want to look into some literature behind why some folks have begun to advocate for the use of the term sex worker versus prostitute.

I recommend Good Omens! It's a TV show based on a book with the same name that's written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Neil Gaiman also wrote the TV Script for Good Omens! It's about Armageddon(The End of the world Bible Version) but it's very funny. An Angel and a Demon who have lived on earth together since the beginning of it are the main focus.

When you like a show about teenagers and their mental health I would recommend the series The end of the fucking world. It just makes you wonder what will happen next, because oh boy, you´re going to be in on a wild ride. Also on a similar note is a british series called My mad fat diary. I think it accurately describes a life of a depressed teenager and that there is a way of getting better. And overall both of these shows have a really good character development.

i love your usual videos but to be honest your film/show videos are my favorites!!! i'd love to see what you'd think of crazy ex girlfriend, specially regarding the character development and the twist on romcom tropes. if you haven't seen it, i'd recommend giving it a chance, i think you might like it not only because it stars well developed female characters but it's funny and relevant and self aware AND a comedy musical.

Honestly, everyone needs to watch Black Sails. I sort of stumbled upon it and I absolutely fell in love with it from the first minute. The first season is a bit slow but the writing is absolutely amazing. I binged all four seasons in like two weeks and now I cry because it’s over.

I agree with so many of your choices :) I was really impressed with Fleabag, especially because I loved the second season even more than the first one which is rare. And you reminded me of how awesome Big Little Lies is.
Here are a few shows I really liked throughout the years:
A really heartwarming show that I have watched 3 times is Lovesick, which follows the lives of 3 roommates throughout their twenties by revisiting one roommate's past relationships. I also really liked You're the worst, which to me is a lot like Love, it is a pretty interesting look at relationships and mental health. The good place is a comedy about life after death, and The good wife is an incredibly good TV show (coming from someone who passionately dislikes lawyer TV shows)
about a woman who tries to go back into law after her husband who is in the public eye cheats on her and it takes a look at her struggles, successes, the way she develops into her own person again after being "the wife of..." for a long time.
I hope you like them, if you decide to watch them and I hope you stay sane :)
Life is very very very slowly going back to normal here in Germany, you guys will make it, too

I strongly recommend "Little Fires Everywhere", it's rare I actually sit down and watch shows especially ones that I have to wait every week for but I was sitting waiting every Thursday for new episodes to come out. In short, it follows two families one is portrayed as the 'perfect' family in the perfect suburb and when a mother and daughter move to the same suburb problems arise and so many secrets come out. i was sitting there audibly gasping at what was going down in the show, so anyone pleaseeeee watch!!!! :)

Maybe a bit late, but stil want to share a french tv show that I really enjoyed and recommend. I don't really know if it is translated in english but is on Netflix : It is called "le Bazar de la charité". It's based on an historical event in Paris (a fire, most of the victims where women cuz men used their muscules to push everyone and be saved...). It's lot of drama ! if you want to sip in foreign tv show ;)

I love, love, love Big Little Lies! It was so GOOD. Also the choice of Alexander Skarsgard as Perry was brilliant. He and Nicole Kidman did such a good job of seeming perfect and then being the complete opposite of that. The reveal of that shit show was riveting stuff. Also Laura Dern and that CEO-level rage breakdown. Was just *100 emoji x infinity*!

I feel like you would like the movie gattaca. It's set in the future (even though it has a film noir aesthetic) where everyone is genetically designed and the people that are born normally are the outcasts of society. The main character tries to fake being genetically made in order to achieve his career goals. It makes you think about the nature vs nurture debate and how grit & determination can override prejudice if you're passionate enough

Nice little review I agree with most of your picks. Just a note, Nicole Kidman relates so well to her character in big little lies cuz she was married to Tom Cruise and he was super controlling, and from what I heard over the years, violent, manic and at the least verbally abusive. I think the show means a LOT to her because of that. I like all the scenes with her because I think that she weaves a lot of their life together into that role. I really dislike Tom Cruise and love it that she can do this show to stick it to him. I heard an interview with her where she as much as said that it was like her own story. Cruise took their adopted kids from her when they divorced.

Glitch on Netflix is super good and alternative and Its got some very genuine acting with messy relatable characters and a great plotline. Also its the first Australian series I've ever watched so that's cool. Also I am obsessed with both the movie and series 'what we do in the shadows' about vampire roomates and their strange relationships with each other directed by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi two comedy legends. So if you want some strange humour that's a good show.
