We all know just how tough keeping up with the factory line of television shows can be so there's a good chance you've missed some of the best shows released this year. It's time to rectify this during the holiday break.
We've collated a list of some of the highest rated shows (according to trusty pals, Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb) released this year. Given we live in an era of multiple streaming sites, we've also compiled where you can watch them in Australia.
With Netflix producing more original content than ever before, it's inevitable that you'll miss a few great shows from time to time. Here are five underrated, little-seen titles from 2019 that you need to add to your binge list.
What We Do In The Shadows
Based on the cult classic mockumentary directed by Taika Waititi, What We Do In The Shadows follows the story of three old vampires who've lived in New York City's Staten Island for hundreds of years.
If you're looking for a laugh and Waititi-style humour, you'll be able catch the vamps on Foxtel's streaming service, Foxtel Go.
The WWII dark comedy features George Clooney and Christopher Abbott and is based on the book written by Joseph Heller. The show's title, like the book's, refers to the fact if Yossarian continues flying dangerous missions he will be considered insane (if he doesn't die first) but refusing to fly them indicates sanity.
Stream the madness on Stan.
Tuca & Bertie
From the guy who brought us BoJack Horseman comes to Tuca & Bertie but aside from the visual style and anthropomorphic focus, they're very different beasts. Instead, Bertie (voiced by Ali Wong) is a hard-working songbird who's while her best friend, Tuca (Tiffany Haddish), is an impulsive party toucan.
Have a laugh or two with Tuca & Bertie on Netflix.
PEN15 is the Andy Samberg-produced show about two 13-year-old girls, played by women in their 30s, navigating high school. It sounds a little strange but once you get passed the fact they're clearly not teenagers (and who ever is?), it's an enjoyable look at the most formative years of life.
You can relive your awkward teens all over again by streaming it on Stan.
When They See Us
Telling the story of how police corruption ruined the lives of five boys from The Bronx in the aftermath of a horrific Central Park crime, When They See Us is tough to watch but an important series of events to know about.
You can watch the unbelievable events unfold in pure frustration on Netflix.
In a break from tradition, Netflix added most of its content on Wednesday this week instead of Friday. This means there isn't much coming to the service this weekend. Fortunately, the content that's there is definitely worth a watch.
