“The show has a great cast with really unique characters. You can see the character development throughout the different seasons, and the adversity that is faced keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time.”

“Host Nicole Byer is an absolute delight. The bakers’ creations are hysterically bad, but the contestants are in on the joke, so you’re laughing right along with them, not at them. It’s the kind of funny we could all use right now.”

– Stacey Panco, Director of Marketing

3. The Walking Dead

“In some ways, it echoes what’s happening in the world today.”

“It’s funny and easy to watch. Plus, there are 5 seasons on Netflix so it will take you a little while to get through.”

– Anna McMenamin, Assistant Controller

5. What We Do In the Shadows

Synopsis: Based on the movie of the same name, this mockumentary-style series follows four vampire roommates who have been living together on Staten Island for over 100 years.

Where to Stream It: Hulu

Number of Seasons: 1 (Season 2 is set to begin airing next week on FX)

“The actors are all great. I especially like Matt Berry. He was hilarious in The IT Crowd and really steals the show in this.”

Streaming shows not your thing? We’ve got a bonus action thriller for you theater lovers who are missing those cinema recliners and movie popcorn.

6. John Wick 3

HBO

Synopsis: Ex-hitman John Wick finds himself on the run from assassins after a $14 million bounty is put on his head as a result of killing a member of the international assassins’ guild.

Where to Stream It: HBO

“When you have some extra time on your hands, why not? Actually, John Wick 3 was better than expected. Was a fan of the original and John Wick II. It’s usually hard to continue a movie series, but this was very well done. Spoiler Alert…they leave the door open for John Wick 4.”

– Wayne Semisch, President & CEO
