Stranger Things (2016)

When one of their number gets trapped in another dimension, the upside-down, it is up to these junior high students to find him with the help of an escaped girl from a government facility.

Great first season, and good second season.

IMDB Score 9.0/10
Amazon Score 4.4/5

One Step Beyond (1959)

Part Twilight Zone, One Step Beyond supposedly features true stories of the unexplained.

Good show and well produced.  I wish the whole thing was available on DVD instead of a 70-show pack.

IMDB Score 7.9/10
Amazon Score 4.6/5

Young Sheldon (2017)

I’m starting to warm up to Young Sheldon.  Supposedly the back story of Sheldon Cooper of Big Bang Theory fame.

Young Sheldon is a grade schooler in High School.  He’s in the same grade as his older brother and doesn’t fit in very well.

IMDB Score 6.6/10
Amazon Score 4.1/5

Arrested Development (2003)

The story of the Bluth family after the Arrest of the family’s father.  Michael Bluth, after being passed up to head the family’s company, decides to take another job but relents when the family desperately needs him.

This is a funny, funny show.

IMDB Score 8.9/10
Amazon Score 4.7/5


Big Mouth (2017)

The horrors of puberty are the fodder for this Netflix original series.

So far, it is hysterical.

In the first episode, one friend sees another without clothes and feels awkward and intimidated by his friend’s physical maturity.  Meanwhile the other friend is hounded by the hormone monster.

IMDB Score 8.3/10


Northern Exposure (1990)

Northern Exposure is a fun comedy, ostensibly about Dr. Joel Fleishman, but it is the ensemble cast that makes the show.  (Stealing the show is the character Ed).

A Doctor, to pay off his medical school debt, gets assigned to Sicily, Alaska, a tiny town as the only doctor.

One note, it is cheaper to get the series by seasons instead of the whole series together.

IMDB Score 8.3/10
Amazon Score 4.6/5


Ancient Aliens (2009-)

Ancient Aliens is a series on The History Channel and investigates artifacts that point to early alien visitation to Earth.

So far, this is an interesting series that looks at early written records and artifacts.

IMDB Score 7.4/10
Amazon Score 4.5/6


Family Guy (1999– )

Family Guy is an adult cartoon about a family with an idiot for a dad (and son), the level-headed mom, unpopular daughter and matricidal one-year-old.

It is very funny and came back after a cancellation and is still going strong.

IMDB Score 8.2/10
Amazon Score 4.5/5
