Alright friends, let me tell you about the best TV Shows I watched in the month of April. This is my first month doing this and I hope to share my favs each month. So, I sit in front of my screen and write about my favorite TV shows that I binged in April.
And let me tell you, folks, this month has been an absolute ride! From thrilling action comedies to imaginative other worlds, I’ve devoured them all. And if you’re looking for some new TV shows to binge on, I definitely have a list for you!
Firstly, if you’re someone who loves to get hooked on TV shows with more than three seasons, I have a couple of gems for you. I even have a great TV show for kids on this list. So grab your snack of choice, get comfy on your couch, and get ready to indulge in some binge-worthy shows!
I have put off watching Peaky Blinders because I honestly try not to watch shows without any Black people in it and I didn’t think they would have any. To my surprise, there are some Black characters and a REALLY good story line filled with drama, violence, and even love.
Peaky Blinders is a Netflix original series set in post-World War I Birmingham, England. The series follows the Shelby family, led by the charismatic and ruthless Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy), as they rise through the ranks of the criminal underworld.
The show has everything you could want in a period crime drama: intricate plotlines, gripping action scenes, and a cast of unforgettable characters. But what really sets Peaky Blinders apart is its attention to detail. The show’s costumes and set design are meticulously crafted to transport you to the 1920s, and the cinematography is breathtaking.
And of course, there’s the show’s iconic theme song, “Red Right Hand” by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, which sets the tone for each episode. So, if you’re a fan of gangster dramas, period pieces, or just great television in general, Peaky Blinders is definitely worth a watch.
Killing Eve is going in my top 10 all-time favorite shows. Killing Eve is a thrilling cat-and-mouse game between MI6 agent Eve Polastri (played by Sandra Oh) and the psychopathic assassin Villanelle (played by Jodie Comer). What sets this show apart from other spy thrillers is its humor and wit.
The writing is sharp and clever, with plenty of darkly comedic moments to balance out the tension. And the performances by Oh and Comer are simply outstanding. Oh brings vulnerability and humanity to her character, while Comer is chillingly charming as the ruthless Villanelle.
But what really makes Killing Eve so addictive is the chemistry between these two women. Their cat-and-mouse game is both exhilarating and twisted, and you’ll find yourself rooting for both of them at different points in the series. I love the romantic story that exists without making the show solely about the character’s sexuality as a headliner.
So, if you’re in the mood for a smart and stylish thriller, Killing Eve is a must-watch.
My Dad The Bounty Hunter
Representation matters and really shows up in My Dad The Bounty Hunter. My Dad the Bounty Hunter is a new animated series on Netflix that’s perfect for kids and adults alike. The show follows the adventures of a young girl named Mika and her father, a bounty hunter who travels through space capturing intergalactic villains.
The animation is stunning, with a unique and colorful style that’s sure to catch your eye. And the voice acting is top-notch, with Laz Alonso and Yvonne Orji. But what really sets My Dad the Bounty Hunter apart is its heart.
The show is full of positive messages about family, friendship, and doing the right thing. And while it’s definitely geared towards a younger audience, there’s enough humor and action to keep adults entertained as well.
So, if you’re looking for a fun and heartwarming show to watch with your kids (or just by yourself), My Dad the Bounty Hunter is definitely worth checking out.
His Dark Materials
Platform: HBO Max (now called MAX)
His Dark Materials started slow and had me wondering if should I keep watching but I am absolutely glad I continued to watch this TV Show. Not only does it beautifully depict the fantasy world connected to this story, it also can challenge your ideas on religion and faith.
His Dark Materials is a fantasy adventure series based on the beloved book series by Philip Pullman. The show takes place in a parallel universe where humans have animal companions called daemons, and follows the story of a young girl named Lyra (played by Dafne Keen) as she uncovers a vast conspiracy that threatens her world.
The world-building in His Dark Materials is simply breathtaking. From the sprawling cities to the icy wastelands, every aspect of this universe feels fully realized and lived in. And the special effects are top-notch, with some of the most realistic-looking daemons ever seen on screen.
But what really sets His Dark Materials apart is its storytelling. The show is full of complex themes and characters, and it’s not afraid to tackle big ideas like religion, power, and morality. So, if you’re a fan of epic fantasy adventures, His Dark Materials is definitely worth a watch.
Hey cousins! Star Wars nerd here, I love it all but I really enjoy The Mandalorian and especially its current season. Because this season I really wanted Din Djarin, the Mandalorian, and Bo Katan Kryze to have real romance!
The Mandalorian is a space western set in the Star Wars universe, following the adventures of a bounty hunter known only as The Mandalorian (played by Pedro Pascal). The show has been a massive hit since it premiered on Disney+ in 2019 and for good reason.
The Mandalorian has everything you could want in a Star Wars story: epic action scenes, lovable characters, and nods to the franchise’s rich history. But what really sets this show apart is its heart. The relationship between The Mandalorian and the Child (aka “Baby Yoda”) is one of the most heartwarming things you’ll see on television.
And while the show is set in a galaxy far, far away, it manages to feel grounded and relatable thanks to its emphasis on character development. So, whether you’re a die-hard Star Wars fan or just looking for a great action-adventure series, The Mandalorian is definitely worth a watch.
You is a psychological thriller series that follows Joe Goldberg (played by Penn Badgley), a charming but troubled bookstore manager who becomes obsessed with a young woman named Beck (played by Elizabeth Lail). The show is dark and twisted, with plenty of shocking twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat.
But what really sets You apart is its exploration of toxic relationships and the dangers of social media. The show is a commentary on our obsession with self-presentation and the ways in which we curate our online personas.
And while Joe is undeniably a villain, the show’s nuanced approach to his character makes him a fascinating and complex protagonist. So, if you’re in the mood for a dark and thought-provoking thriller, You is definitely worth a watch.
Into The Badlands
Into the Badlands is a post-apocalyptic martial arts series that follows a skilled warrior named Sunny (played by Daniel Wu) as he navigates a dangerous world ruled by feudal barons. It is loosely based on the Chinese folktale Journey to the West.
The show has been praised for its stunning fight choreography and impressive world-building. And while the show’s action scenes are undoubtedly its biggest draw, there’s also plenty of character development to keep you invested. The ensemble cast is full of memorable characters, from the enigmatic Widow (played by Emily Beecham) to the loyal M.K. (played by Aramis Knight).
And the show’s themes of power, loyalty, and redemption make it more than just a mindless action series. So, if you’re a fan of martial arts films or just looking for an exciting and well-crafted series, Into the Badlands is definitely worth a binge-watch.
