Fargo S1 & S2

for fans of The Coen Broth­ers Rather than a re­hash of the Coen Broth­ers’ film, this se­ries con­jures up its own cast of bizarre char­ac­ters. The first sea­son finds an un­likely duo in Martin Free­man as the weasly ev­ery­day man who’s killed his wife, and Billy Bob Thornton’s ruth­less as­sas­sin.

Top of the Lake S1

for fans of The Miss­ing, Jane Cam­pion Jane Cam­pion is best known for her Os­car-win­ning film The Pi­ano, but this minis­eries is her opus. When a young de­tec­tive re­turns home to visit her mother, she’s dragged into the case of a miss­ing teenage girl. Haunt­ing and at­mo­spheric.


for fans of Twin Peaks, It Fol­lows This year the Archie comic gets a sly, sexy makeover. This isn’t the twee, color­ful story you may re­mem­ber from your child­hood, but a grungy por­trait of teen angst and sex­u­al­ity in small-town Amer­ica. Think Daw­son’s Creek reimag­ined as Twin Peaks.


for fans of X-men, su­per­hero sto­ries We know— yawn, another X-Men story. But lis­ten: This is slicker and edgier than any of the X-Men films. Fo­cus­ing on a young mu­tant who suf­fers from schizophre­nia, Haller is the volatile, un­re­li­able nar­ra­tor who meets other mu­tants in a psy­chi­atric hospi­tal.

Santa Clarita Diet

for fans of Drew Barrymore, Se­rial Mom Drew Barrymore’s sub­ur­ban house­wife is sweet and fun-lov­ing, ex­cept she’s also a zom­bie. Af­ter a fa­tal ac­ci­dent ends in her death and res­ur­rec­tion, how will her fam­ily sate her hunger for hu­man flesh and hide it from the neigh­bors? Fan­tas­tic and mad.

Bates Mo­tel S5

for fans of Psy­cho, The pre­quel to Hitch­cock’s pulpy clas­sic gets even creepier in its fi­nal sea­son. It’s been two years since the death of Norma Bates, and Nor­man’s strange black­outs are be­com­ing even more vi­o­lent and se­vere. Fre­quently trashy, but al­ways en­joy­able.
