This post for Dead To Me Season 1 is spoiler-free.

Let me tell you that Dead to Me Season 1 (2019, created by Liz Feldman) is no fun to watch if you are already spoiled. The series follows Jennifer “Jen” Harding (Christina Applegate) who is grieving over her husband’s death after he was killed in a hit and run; she befriends a weird and eccentric lady named Judy Hale (Linda Cardellini) at a grief group, and they soon become besties.

Chambers is a chilling and suspenseful series that becomes too predictable and a tad bit puzzling.

No Good Nick’s (2019, created by Keetgi Kogan and David H. Steinberg) trailer got me intrigued by the premise of the show. It follows Nicole “Nick” Patterson (Siena Agudong) who one day poses as a distant relative and appears at the Thompson family’s doorstep, but what the Thompsons don’t know is that Nick is up to no good and is trying to scam them of their money.

TV Review: Delhi Crime Season 1 🇮🇳👮🏽‍♀️

Delhi Crime proves that crimes from a very different part of the world can be made into an anthological series by a global streaming giant.

This post for Delhi Crime Season 1 contains spoilers.

When Delhi Crime Season 1 (2019, created, written, and directed by Richie Mehta) premiered on March 22 I had completely missed it. Coincidentally Hulu’s The Act also premiered the same week; both shows, though set in different countries, are based on real events that actually took place a few years apart from one another (2015 for the murder of Dee Dee Blanchard and 2012 for the Delhi gang rape case).

With Season 2 (2019, developed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa), Sabrina now goes to the Academy of Unseen Arts full-time, leaving her mortal friends behind at Baxter High.

TV Review: The Order Season 1 🔮🐺

The Order isn’t a particularly impressive television series, but it serves well as a guilty pleasure show.

The latest supernatural TV series The Order (2019, created by Dennis Heaton and Shelley Eriksen) feels like an attempt by Netflix to be more like The CW, if you get what I mean. With only 10 episodes in its first season, The Order follows the story of Jack Morton (Jake Manley) who attends Belgrave University and pledges to be part of a secret magic society called the Hermetic Order of the Blue Rose “The Order”. Unbeknownst to members of The Order, Jack has a secret agenda that he is trying to fulfil.

This post for Workin’ Moms Season 1 contains spoilers.

It’s all thanks to Netflix and its effect that I recently discovered and binge-watched the Canadian TV series Workin’ Moms (2017—, created by Catherine Reitman) (note: as of this writing Netflix is streaming Season 1 globally, Season 2 will premiere April 12 globally; both Season 1 and Season 2 are on Netflix Canada, but this series currently has three seasons on CBC). The series follows the lives of four moms—Kate (Catherine Reitman), Anne (Dani Kind), Frankie (Juno Rinaldi), and Jenny (Jessalyn Wanlim)—who meet up once a week at a mommy and me group. The series starts off with the moms ending their maternal leave and going back to their normal working lives.
