“What should I watch next?” Keridwyn’s TV show recommendations

Looking for a new-to-you show or movie to stream?

Here’s a list of shows I have enjoyed.  I update this occasionally.

Updated 9/17/2020

To find out where each show or movie is streaming and to read a synopsis, search the title on justwatch.com – a very handy website.

If you are easily offended, please read up before watching shows, as not all of these are appropriate for kids or easily-offended adults.  I use commonsensemedia.com  to see if a show is going to be too violent/gory for me and this is a good source for folks who want to keep it PG/PG13 too.
HERE WE GO – TV SHOWS AND MOVIES I RECOMMEND
I LOVED:
Hannah Gadsby – Nanette (stand up show / one person show but deals with heavy subjects also funny and incredible) and Douglas. (Watch Nanette first)
The Good Place (Give it a few episodes)
Neal Brennan – 3 mics  (stand up show/one person show but deals with depression. Excellent)
Fleabag (not for the easily offended)
Orphan Black (especially the first season)
Funny:
Marvelous Mrs Maisel
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist
Upload (a cute guy gets uploaded to the afterlife)
The Kominski Method
Mike Birbiglia – The New One (stand up – his other stand up is good too)
