It’s summertime and the bingeing is easy. Whether you’re at home with AC or lounging by the pool, now is the perfect opportunity to find your new show or catch up on old favorites before they return in the fall.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Now Streaming on Netflix
Kimmy Schmidt returns with a third season that is equal parts charming and laugh-out-loud funny. Starring Ellie Kemper, Jane Krakowski and Tituss Burgess, Kimmy Schmidt is a fish-out-of-water (or girl-out-of-bunker) story about a woman who moves to New York after spending most of her life in a doomsday cult. Building off the last seasons, the show has expanded with additional characters and storylines, creating room for more jokes and hijinks. So pour yourself something cold, because watching Titus Lemonade-ing is reason enough to add this show to your Netflix queue.
With a colorful 80’s aesthetic, an impeccable musical score, and a stunning cast of strong women, Netflix’s newest debut show surely packs a punch. Follow the women behind one of the biggest real-life wrestling phenomena back to a time when big hair and big personalities ruled the world. Fans of Orange is the New Black are bound to adore this mix of comedy, drama, and pure-adrenaline empowerment (and, further endorsement: my roommate has already watched the whole season twice). Starring Alison Brie and Marc Maron.
Friends from College promises to bring the power of stardom with an all-star cast including comedy alums Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele) and Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother). This new 8-episode series features the dramas and complexities surrounding a group of Harvard grads now in their forty-somethings as they rediscover old friendships and romances. Whether you’re a recent grad or someone avoiding their ten-year reunion in the fall, this show is bound to bring back laughs and nostalgia.
Season 1+2 Now Available on HBO

Together with her best friend Molly (Yvonne Orji), Issa’s journey is one of the freshest stories on TV and will be causing a buzz at the watercooler come Monday morning.
