These Are the 31 Best TV Shows Streaming Right Now
If you're looking for something to binge on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime, then we have you covered!
'Orphan Black' (Amazon Prime)
"Orphan Black" went a bit off the rails towards the end, but Tatiana Maslany is one of the best actors of our generation -- and watching her work is a gift.
'The Americans' (Amazon Prime)
A critically-acclaimed show that remains underrated to this day. With its final season available now to stream, it's the perfect time to binge and catch up. Just make sure you go out and get a little sunlight, because it gets pretty dark.
'Psych' (Amazon Prime)
We were filled with rage when "Psych" disappeared from Netflix. Thankfully, it made it's way to Amazon Prime. "Psych" is a smart comedy that was made for any and every pop culture enthusiast.
'Fleabag' (Amazon Prime)
The female anti-hero has risen and we can't get enough.
'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' (Amazon Prime)
If there's still a "Bunheads"-sized hole in your heart, we've got the perfect filler here for you.
'Bob's Burgers' (Hulu)
If you've ever wanted to relate to cartoon characters, "Bob's Burgers" is your jam.
Donald Glover is taking over Hollywood, so you might as well catch up.
'Great News' (Hulu)
We can't figure out why no one is watching one of the most delightful comedies on TV, but everyone is really missing out. It's got the quirkiness of "30 Rock" and the office camaraderie of "Parks and Recreation."
'The Golden Girls' (Hulu)
Thank you for being a friend, Hulu, and giving us a place to watch this classic comedy.
#JusticeForSelfie. A show we judged very harshly, then fell in love with just in time for it to be taken away from us!
'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' (Hulu)
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is the TV equivalent of a warm hug.
A show that is educational, bonkers, emotional, and hilarious all at the same time.
'Handmaid's Tale' (Hulu)
The new season premieres on April 30, so you're running out of time to finally catch up!
If you can move past the fact that no one would believe that Sutton Foster is in her 20s, this show is like the grownup WB drama you've been looking for. No offense to Sutton, she looks amazing and beautiful and young, but she does not look 20.
'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' (Netflix)
Even though the ratings aren't great, "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" is a critics darling, and for good reason. While it started as a comedy, at it's core, "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" has addressed mental illness in ways no other show has.
'Jane the Virgin' (Netflix)
Gina Rodriguez is a born star. She brings it to every scene she's in, no matter how big or small. Plus, this show has addressed important topics like immigration and PTSD.
"Lovesick" is a show originally called "Scrotal Recall," which could explain why so many people were so wary of watching it at first. But, it's a dramedy with a lot of heart and almost too much relatable-ness.
'The Good Place' (Netflix)
If you're not watching "The Good Place," what are you forking doing? Drop everything, get your shirt together, and watch it!
'American Vandal' (Netflix)
Who drew the dicks? That's the question you'll try to answer while simultaneously crying tears of laughter at this Peabody Award-winning series.
'The West Wing' (Netflix)
If you are so over 2018, go back to a better place with President Bartlet.
'Better Call Saul' (Netflix)
Even if you didn't like "Breaking Bad," there's a high chance you'll be into the dark humor of "Saul."
'The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story' (Netflix)
A show you go into thinking you will make fun of it or hate watch, but then you realize Sterling K. Brown is here -- and that means it's legit. This show is especially interesting if you were slightly too young to remember the case -- or Marcia Clark's infamous perm.
'Star Trek: The Next Generation' (Hulu & Netflix)
This syndicated TV hit is also streaming on Amazon. And if you've never watched the adventures of Captain Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-D before -- we envy you. That's one first time we wish we could get back.
'Star Trek' (Hulu/Netflix/Amazon Prime)
Over 50 years old. and this classic sci-fi series still holds up. Especially Kirk and Spock's first two seasons' worth of missions.
'Happy Endings' (Hulu)
It's like "Friends," just better and funnier. Yeah, we went there. This short-lived series was not given its due by network ABC, and its fans have only grown since its unfortunate cancellation.
'Game of Thrones' (HBO Go and HBO Now)
I mean, it's "GoT." No further justification for its inclusion here needed.
'30 Rock' (Hulu)
Liz Lemon forever gets us.
'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine' (Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime)
For fans, this gritty and occasionally-serialized Trek show is the best and most character-driven of the franchise. They're not wrong.
Because the adventures of Eleven and the gang in the Upside Down never get old.
This intense procedural is equal parts thrilling and heartbreaking. Idris Elba's star-making turn as DCI Luther presents the now-iconic character as a man struggling to keep the line between right and wrong from becoming more blurred than it already is. That struggle often results in either blood, tragedy, or both. Luther is one busted tail-light away from crossing the edge, but somehow he finds enough light on the dreary streets of London to keep fighting. Even if that fight is often with himself.
'Breaking Bad' (Netflix)
While it was obviously was born from a visionary concept, all of "Breaking Bad'"s perfectly executed elements — its look, feel, performances, and writing — make it legendary. Television may never see a more compelling anti-hero than Walter White.
