There’s nothing quite like the joy of discovering a new show to binge. However, it can sometimes be a challenge to find a great new series to watch. Luckily for you, this list features four under-rated shows to binge on Netflix, from murder mysteries to sketch comedies. So, settle in under a cozy blanket in our South Lamar apartments and start watching! You’ll certainly find yourself at the edge of your seat for hours on end.
1. Twin Peaks
Created by legendary and eccentric director David Lynch, Twin Peaks begins with a simple question: “Who killed Laura Palmer?” From there, you’ll enter the strange and beautiful town of Twin Peaks, Washington, to find a world of giants and secret diaries.
Once you’ve finished the original series, be sure to watch the film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (featuring a cameo by the late, great David Bowie) to witness Laura Palmer’s final day. You can also return to Twin Peaks 25 years later by signing up for a 30-day free trial on Showtime to watch 2017’s Twin Peaks: The Return.
Watch if you’re interested in murder mysteries, cult classics, the supernatural, coffee, or anything by David Lynch.
Starring: Kyle MacLachlan, Peggy Lipton, Michael Ontkean, Lara Flynn Boyle, Sherilyn Fenn, Sheryl Lee, David Lynch
2. The People VS O.J. Simpson
The trial of O.J. Simpson for the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman was a transformational moment in American history. Simpson’s celebrity status, the racial tension of the time, and the media scrutiny of the case make this feature one to remember.
If you’d like more information about the life of O.J. Simpson, check out the fantastic documentary O.J.: Made in America.
Watch if you’re interested in true crime, courtroom drama, shows inspired by real events, and the origins of the Kardashian family.
Starring: Cuba Gooding Jr., Sarah Paulson, John Travolta, Courtney B. Vance, Sterling K. Brown, David Schwimmer
3. Russian Doll
Created by the dynamic trio of Leslye Headland, Natasha Lyonne, and Amy Poehler, this show follows two people who can’t seem to stop living the same day of their lives over and over again.
Watch if you are a fan of clever premises, offbeat dramedy, and the concept of recurring Thursdays.
Starring: Natasha Lyonne, Charlie Barnett, Greta Lee, Elizabeth Ashley, Rebecca Henderson
4. I Think You Should Leave With Tim Robinson
Undoubtedly one of the strangest and most hilarious shows on Netflix, I Think You Should Leave With Tim Robinson is a show that has to be seen to be believed. Weird and wacky sketch premises include an ode to a skeleton, pitches for a new car, and a “baby of the year” contest.
Watch if you’re interested in sketch comedy, absurd situations, hot dogs, and Jim Davis (the creator of the cartoon Garfield).
Starring: Tim Robinson, Sam Richardson, Andy Samberg, Will Forte, Kate Berlant
