The Crown (Netflix)
Diana joins the family and is promptly tossed into the royal threshing machine by Queen Elizabeth II and the system she lives to uphold. Throw in a virtuosic performance by Gillian Anderson as the Iron Lady, and this is The Crown’s most humane, poignant, and impeccably-rendered season yet.

Ted Lasso (Apple TV+)
Jason Sudeikis’ titular coach arrived just when we needed him most. Expanded from an NBC Sports promo into a lively and complete comedic universe, Ted Lasso delivered 10 hilarious episodes about team building, emotional intelligence and the unrelenting power of human decency.

Desus & Mero (Showtime)

The Plot Against America (HBO)

A Jersey family who happens to be Jewish faces a president who happens to be fascist. This show ends on a tense election night. For the US that night never ends.

Westworld (HBO)
The evil Frenchman, computer god-spheres, constant re-deaths, and Aaron Paul as a extremely bland new hero? Everything went wrong when the quirky robo-Western rebooted itself into a bland tech-noir.
