Grab a cup of tea and a snack while I geek out about my favorite TV shows for 29 minutes :) If you’ve been looking for a way to pass the time in quarantine, and have already baked 5 loaves of banana bread, hopefully something I recommended caught your eye! I chat about everything from sit coms to crime shows to stand up comedians, so whether you’re looking for something intense and action-packed or relaxing, I got you :)

  • if you haven't, do yourself a favor and check out "crazy ex-girlfriend." it's a SUPER dark romantic cringe comedy, that's thinly veiled as a lighthearted broadway-esque fairytale. it's incredibly well written, the musical score is phenomenal, it has strong genuine women characters and it de-stigmatizes mental illness in probably the best way i've seen done in any show or movie. it's on netflix, HIGHLY recommended!

  • If you haven't already, watch Shera and the princesses of power and Gilmore Girls both of which are on Netflix. Shera is amazing with a slightly rushed ending but it will forever be a favorite.

  • You are going to love (!!!) Crazy Ex Girlfriend. It's female written (the writer of The Devil Wears Prada, and a sensation-icon-legend from youtube, Rachel Bloom) has a very diverse cast (they had four episodes in the third season i guess without a single straight white male character present), it addresses issues as serious as suicide, sexuality, mental health, achieveing your dream, etc. in the form of a musical comedy. It is so well made, and it is packed with talents like Santino Fontana or Donna Lynne Champlin. All of its four seasons are rated at least 95% on rotten tomatoes. It also got an Emmy. I could sort of describe it as a musical Fleabag. It is on Netflix. If you see this comment, just give it a chance. Search it on youtube, listen to "Don't be a lawyer" or "Trapped in a car with someone you don't wanna be trapped in a car with" I think those are pretty spoiler-free.

  • Sharp Objects is also amazing (direct by Jean-Marc Vallée who directed the 1st season of Big Little Lies) - it’s an adaptation of a novel written by the same author who gave us Gone Girl. The cinematography is amazing and the cast is stellar. Though it’s not for the faint of heart :’(

  • there’s a lot of people recommending things in the comments but I don’t see anyone talking about Barry with Bill Hader it’s about a Hitman who tries to become an actor it’s hilarious and has very complex characters and you don’t know who to root for because you kind of hate all of them but love them at the same time. It’s very dark but so ridiculously funny I recommend it to everyone I meet, it’s very well done and it reels you in.

  • Extracurricular and kingdom on Netflix are so amazing. A total change in vibes too as they are South Korean dramas. Extracurricular is more of a crime drama but with a good depiction of the struggles of teenage students in Korea. Kingdom is set in a Korean dynasty and is definitely a political drama but with zombies, sounds so weird and zombies are so over done but damn this show it does everything so well. Both are must watch if not at least a must try.

  • I recommend Kidding! I was a bit reluctant at first because Jim Carrey stars in it and I find him a bit annoying but it was SO WORTH IT! It's about a kid's TV show host who is struggling to keep his family together and it's just really witty, funny and sad at the same time, which sounds like right up your alley, Ashley :)
