I May Destroy You
"I'm currently watching I May Destroy You on Binge. I'd heard so much about it and it completely lives up to the hype. I've watched seven episodes in two days—that's how hooked I am! The characters are so three dimensional and the lead actress, Michaela Coel (who also wrote and directed the series), is captivating. It does explore some pretty heavy themes, so only watch it when you're in the mood to be moved."

"Right now I'm watching Twin Peaks for the first time and I'm obsessed! Already into season two and it's so weird and wonderful!"

"I am watching After Life on Netflix, currently on season two. It's a really good British comedy-drama and Ricky Gervais is so good in it."
—Jarita, Customer Service
"I'm watching 9-1-1, which is show about emergency responders, made by the creators of American Horror Story. Loving the drama. Makes me want to be a firefighter, then I remember I'm afraid of heights."

After it won the Emmy for Best Drama I started rewatching Succession, one of the smartest and most original series I've seen in a long time, which is about a fictional media empire and the family behind it. It's the funniest drama on TV, and Nicholas Braun's performance as cousin Greg is something very special. It's also the only series I don't skip the intro on—the theme song gets me every time."
"Right now I'm watching Giri/Haji, which is a British series set in both London and Tokyo, so the dialogue is English and Japanese. It's about a Japanese detective who goes to London looking for his brother, who was assumed dead but might still be alive."
"I'm watching Gossip Girl again. The first two seasons are iconic. I also loved the books. I'm definitely a Blair!"
