  • please please please watch community. it's a sitcom with meta humour that's ahead of it's time. it's about a successful lawyer who gets exposed for his fake bachelor's degree, so he has to enrol in a community college. there he forms and meets an unorthodox group of people that become a spanish study group. on the surface it doesn't sound as appealing, but once you get into it, you'll understand what a masterpiece of a show it is.

  • John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch is incredibly, because it has adult humour, with out being crude and inappropriate. It's also has a couple of awesome guest stars, like the singer from Talking Heads and Jake Gyllenhall - please correct me if I'm spelling that wrong. It just really slaps...

  • Also Russian Doll seems like something you'd really like and maybe even Sex Education; it can be kinda a typical coming of age tv show but it's unique in it's discussion of sex and the less talked about factors of being a teenager.

    Raenen HansenRaenen Hansen12 hours ago
  • Undone. It's literally perfect for you cause it's by the same creator of Bojack Horseman AND Bob Odenkirk is one of the stars in it AND the protagonist is a hispanic feminist in her early 30s tackling themes of depression and mental illness and opposition to societal standards. It's funny and dark and insanely creative, I really enjoyed the art style as well.

  • Oh my goodness! I'm SO glad you talked about Sloss! I watched his specials at the end of 2018 and they completly changed how I the world. Last summer I went to go see his show "X" in Madison, WI and it was absolutely spectacular. He discusses toxic masculinity and how he has delt with his own toxic masculinity. If you haven't seen it, it's on HBO. I 100% reccomend. He is my favorite comedian of all time :)))

  • Mr. Robot is one of my favorite shows. The cinematography is AMAZING! Rami Malek plays the leading role, which is kind of nice cause there aren’t many tv shows with a non white protagonist... it’s also directed my Sam Esmail, who in my opinion is a really underrated director. I’ve recommended this show to my friends, but I haven’t found anyone who can really appreciate this work of ART.

  • Ashleeyyy I feel like you would SO LOVE Casual! It's a Hulu TV Show about a guy who made a dating app but he himself sucks at relationships, and it follows him, his sister who's a therapist but also has relationship issues, and the latter's teenage daughter who has issues of her own. I absolutely loved it and given what you like I'm 100% sure you'd like this show! I really hope you'll see my comment but I bet it's just gonna get drowned in the sea of comments 😭

  • this isnt a "western" show but i rlly recommend the kdrama extracurricular (its on netflix n theres 10 eps) to put it simply its abt teens committing crimes out of desperation n survival,, some ppl have said that it starts slow n the ending isnt the most satisfying but the acting is amazing (esp considering that the main cast r almost all rookie actors) n i was on the edge of my seat the entire time (i actually binge watched the whole show in one night😭💀) what i loved the most is that there isnt a clear good or bad guy n it tackles a lot of social issues which arent talked abt too often in the west n even less talked abt (even taboo) in korea,, but it does depict scenes of self harm, panic attacks, abuse, n prostitution so please dont watch if these things will make u uncomfy🥺
