7. Three Percent (3%)
A Brazilian dystopian thriller series, is set in a future where people are given a chance to go to the “better side” of a world. Towards the end of the eight-episode season one, in a world sharply divided between progress and devastation, only 3% of the candidates succeed. What happens next? Hmm, hmm, you know what I mean.
Yes, this is a show. Nope, this is not how you feel about your self-proclaimed title of being a “binge watcher” four points into the list. Issa, an Afro-American model along with her friend Molly beautifully depict the “complexities that exist with blackness.” Follow the tribulations of a black woman, it is not an exemplary story but it is an everyday story of a regular woman from a perspective – I bet- you wouldn’t have imagined.
5. Queen Sugar
Three siblings with one of the sister’s teenage son move to Louisiana to claim the property of their freshly departed father – an 800-acre sugar farm- and not, uhm, the sugar you probably expected. The siblings, otherwise entangled in their own complicated lives, put everything else aside and one together to run the clan.
The show that will make you laugh like a free spirit, weep like a baby and cringe like a woman on her periods, tells tales of pure, true romance and deep, dark desires. The show follows a couple through their intimacy, humiliations, and commitment they try their best to avoid. Smooth, excellent and perfectly directed – however, have you cared about anything other than Sheldon Cooper’s repetitive jokes?
3. Lady Dynamite
As promising as the name, this show really demands to be one of the hits but sadly got lost in the shadows of other popular series’. A stand-up comedian, Maria Bamford moves to Los Angeles after spending six months attempting to recover from Bipolar Disorder and chooses to recreate her life from scratch with the help of her agent Bruce. Does she succeed or not? Find it up for yourself, yo!
2. Life in Pieces
One of my favorites from the list, this series narrates the lives of three generations of a family as they approach their day by day lives in Los Angeles. Every episode is told in four stories – in pieces – finding life’s everyday absurdities; watch it and relate, you guys!
1. Drop Dead Diva
The arrangement spins around a dull trying model, “Deb” who loses to death in a car crash while in transit to an audition. As her spirit enters the doors of Heaven, she ends up being judged by a guard named Fred. Because of her shallowness, Fred pronounces her a “zero-zero,” since she has performed zero great deeds and zero awful deeds amid her time on Earth. The show has made rounds and concluded in 2014 with a total of six seasons!
