Finally ready to catch up on some TV shows while you hunker down during the blizzard? I’ve got some suggestions for you to get started from dramas to comedies.

  • OZARK (Netflix)

    A show that has drawn comparisons to “Breaking Bad”, “Ozark” follows the Byrde family and stars Jason Bateman & Laura Linney. After a money laundering scheme for a Mexican drug cartel goes wrong, financial advisor Marty Byrde proposes to make amends by offering to set up a bigger laundering operation in the Lake of the Ozarks region of central Missouri. The acting is incredible and the cinematography is excellent. Currently, the first half of the fourth (and final) season is streaming on Netflix.

  • YELLOWSTONE (Seasons 1-3: Peacock, Season 4: Paramount Network)

    Kevin Costner returns to television in one of his best roles, but the show is stolen by Kelly Reilly who plays his daughter Beth. The series follows the Dutton family, owners of the largest ranch in Montana, the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch, commonly called “The Yellowstone”. The plot revolves around family drama at the ranch and the bordering Broken Rock Indian Reservation, national park, and developers. As a rough comparison, picture “Sons of Anarchy” meets “Ozark” with a touch of “The Sopranos.”

  • YELLOWJACKETS (Showtime)

    An incredible soundtrack accompanies “Yellowjackets”, the story that follows a team of New Jersey high school soccer players traveling to Seattle for a national tournament in 1996. While flying over Canada, their plane crashes deep in the wilderness and the remaining team members are left to survive for nineteen months. The series chronicles their attempts to survive while also tracking their current lives in 2021. See this as an updated version of “Lord of the Flies.”

  • COBRA KAI (Netflix)

    If you loved the “Karate Kid” franchise, you should have already binged this. But, maybe now’s the time! “Cobra Kai” is set 34 years after the original “Karate Kid” film. After being defeated by Daniel LaRusso in the 1984 All-Valley Karate Tournament, Johnny Lawrence, now in his 50s, works as a part-time handyman and lives in an apartment in Reseda, Los Angeles, having fallen far from the wealthy lifestyle in Encino that he had been accustomed to growing up due to suffering from depression and alcoholism after being traumatized by Kreese’s assault against him (from The Karate Kid Part II). Some great one-liners and a “guilty pleasure” watch.

    Season 1 trailer:

  • LETTERKENNY (Hulu)

    Ok, this is by far one of the funniest shows I’ve seen in a LONG time. “Letterkenny” revolves around a small rural Canadian community of the same name. The series focuses on siblings Wayne and Katy, who run a small farm and produce stand with help from Wayne’s friends Daryl and Squirrely Dan. Episodes deal with small-town life amongst different types of people: the farmers (the “hicks”), the out-of-towners who make up the local ice hockey team, the town’s closeted minister, the drug addicts (the “skids”), members of the nearby First Nation reserve (the “natives”), the local Mennonites, and the Québécois. One of the show’s running jokes is that almost every character possesses the ability to think quickly and come up with a continual barrage of wordplay and puns, as well as have sophisticated views on worldly topics.
