8 June 2020

As the cold weather hits we thought we’d share our top 10 TV shows to stream this winter. You thought you’d watched everything while you #stayhome, but you might’ve missed these gems.

Recommended from members of the Make It Mine team!

 

The Good Place

1. The Good Place

Self-absorbed Eleanor Shellstrop lived a morally corrupt life and due to an error arrives at the Good Place after her death. Determined to stay, she tries to become a better person. She meets three others and together with their otherworldly frienemy, they all struggle to define what it means to be good.

Starring Kristen Bell, Ted Danson and Jameela Jamil, The Good Place is available on Netflix… it’s an oldie but a goodie! With some oddball moments!

 

Dead To Me

2. Dead to Me

Jen, a sardonic widow searching for the hit-and-run driver who mowed down her husband, befriends an eccentric optimist who isn’t quite what she seems.

Dead to Me stars Christina Applegate, Linda Cardellini and James Marsden. The dark comedy explores the oddly funny sides of grief, loss and forgiveness.

Season 2 dropped on Netflix last month, so if you haven’t seen season 1 yet, there’s plenty to binge on here!

 

After Life

3. After Life

Struggling to come to terms with his wife’s death, Tony, adopts a gruff new persona in an effort to push away those trying to help.

He thinks not caring about himself or anybody else is his new superpower, but it ends up being trickier than he thought when his friends and family try to save the nice guy that they used to know.

Ricky Gervais wrote, directed and stars in After Life, with Tom Basden and Tony Way and it’s available on Netflix.  Guaranteed there will be laughs as well as tears.
