Top 3 New Shows to Check Out
The Coronavirus has led to large sums of people staying home and practicing social distancing. It would seem that this is the safest call at the moment, but being stuck at home can definitely get boring. An easy way to keep oneself entertained when couped up in your house is by throwing on a show to watch.
Finding a new show to watch can be a bit of a hassle. It’s always a buzzkill to invest time in a new show just to realize it’s not really your style. After scrolling through Netflix for a while I usually end up throwing on a guaranteed laugh that I’ve seen before such as The Office. If you’re tired of struggling to find a new show that’s actually good, then look no further, I have compiled a list of the top 3 new shows to watch during this social hiatus.
3. The Outsiders
If you are into crime TV series than I would highly suggest watching The Outsiders. There are definitely differences, but another crime series that it reminds me of in certain aspects is True Detective. There are a few stand out names in the cast including Jason Bateman and Ben Mendelsohn (who stared in Bloodline).
It is a thrilling show that creates an eerie vibe for those watching. The show follows a detective attempting to solve a murder case in a small town. Initially, it would seem the crime was an open-and-shut case, but things soon take a twist. The series is based on a Stephen King novel, so be sure to expect great writing along with some supernatural aspects.
Dave is a comedy that is based on the life of aspiring rapper Lil Dicky, whose real name is Dave Burd. The series follows Dave as he attempts to navigate the life of creating a rap career. The show alludes to his fame from hit internet songs but points out that he wants to be taken more seriously as a rapper.
It is cool to see some possible perspective on what the rap game is like in a comedic way. Dave is able to show some of the struggles or less glamorous aspects of wanting to be a musician such as the hit show Atlanta has. Still, the show is really quite funny. It features quality writing and a well-rounded cast. Dicky’s core group of friends keeps the humor going in a great way. You can see a number of guest appearances on the show from famous rappers such as YG, Trippie Redd, and Young Thug.
1. Tiger King
I personally believe that Dave is overall a better-written series than Tiger King, but the entertainment factor when it comes to the latter is undeniable. Tiger King is a documentary series that follows the life of Joe Exotic, an eccentric man from the south, that owned hundreds of wild big cats.
This might not sound all too intriguing, but I can confidently say this show is worth checking out. Joe Exotic is an absolutely ridiculous person, but this makes for some good tv. The series follows his hectic life and the enemies he makes along the way. There is murder, madness, and mayhem that all make for an intriguing show.
Picking a new series to watch isn’t always the easiest thing. There are so many options out there nowadays, and not all of them are worth watching. I believe the above list contains shows that offer a diverse range of quality content. These shows are pretty original in a world where many just take the easy route of copying others.
