After the decade long year we just had, I want to appreciate how good the escapism TV has been for me. There has been some dynamite TV and YouTube. Some of these predated the pandemic but are wonderful for a rewatch.


Altered Carbon (scifi)

The Witcher (fantasy)

Shadow and Bone (fantasy)

Middleditch and Schwartz (humor)


Fargo Season 1 (suspense)

Watchmen Series (drama)

Chernobyl (docu-drama)

Apple TV

Ted Lasso (humor)

Nomadland (drama)


The World According to Jeff Goldblum (humor documentary)

The Mandalorian (scifi)

WandaVision (fantasy)
