This UK surprise ranked as one of Barack Obama’s favourite shows of 2019, and we’re inclined to agree. Written and starring the irreverent Phoebe Waller-Bridge (who’s also behind Killing Eve and Crashing) this is a witty and often heartbreaking view of life through the eyes of a single London resident in her 30s.
Not for the faint hearted or those prone to blushing, the beauty of Fleabag is in its deft writing. It’s feminine in its view of the world and very different to anything else doing the rounds.
While series one is a standout, series two proves even better, so settle on in for a total of 12 artfully written episodes that prove hard to part with once you’re done.
Set in New York and Berlin and presented primarily in Yiddish, Unorthodox offers a glimpse into the often veiled world of the ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jewish community.

Unorthodox is based on a true story. It’s beautifully written and performed impeccably.
Offering up three seasons of bingeworthy drama, the Ozarks is set in the US and stars Jason Bateman as a mob accountant caught in an ever-changing web.
It’s dark, compelling, occasionally confronting, and evocatively filmed to explore family, relationships and just how far people will go.
This Australian comedy inspires a laugh due to its outright honesty. It’s centred around new mum Audrey who’s grappling with all those oh so familiar new mum issues, so joins a support group.
There she encounters a quirky group of friends, all dealing with their own challenges and dramas. It’s refreshing because it explores new motherhood, without descending too far into stereotypes.
Bad Banks is an intellectual thriller infused with sophisticated European flavour. Set in Germany and Luxembourg, it features a stellar cast who effortlessly slip from one language to the next, all while navigating the financial collapse of a…big bank.
If you love a fly on the wall view of the high-flying corporate lifestyle complete with a hearty dose of espionage, deception and betrayal, this one’s a must.
