We’ve all been there, scrolling through Netflix or HBO Max in search of an interesting series to watch and coming up short. It’s not that there is a lack of quality tv shows out there, that’s far from the truth actually, however, it can be overwhelming to choose from such a large selection of shows.
We may be itching for an invigorating series with lovable characters but may not want to put in the work of going through the various categories of genres. If that’s the case for you, look no further as the Alux team has compiled a list of their own favorite shows everyone should be watching in 2021.
These are our top 5 must watch shows of the year, so, grab a bowl of popcorn, sit back and get lost in these amazing plotlines and dialogues.
● Snowfall on FX and Hulu. This show is definitely an underrated gem. While the first
season starts off a bit slow, things start to pick up in the second season and viewers
quickly fall in love with Damson Idris’ character, Franklin. This FX show takes on Los
Angeles and the crack epidemic in the 80’s, with unprecedented twists it’s definitely one
you don’t want to miss out on watching.
● Behind Her Eyes on Netflix. Recently released on Netflix and based on a novel of the
same name, this British show is the true definition of a thriller. While it starts off
somewhat “innocently” with the main character Louise beginning a new relationship and
friendship, that cannot be further from the truth. We don’t want to give too much away,
so, just make sure to check out this incredible series.
● P-Valley on Starz. The cast is part of the show’s popularity as well as its depiction of
LGBTQ+ relationships and the discrimination they face. It follows the lives of employees
in the popular strip club, The Pynk, in the south. Just by watching the first episode you’ll
fall in love with one of the main characters, Uncle Clifford and the other characters will
follow suit. For laughter, suspense and more tune into P-Valley.
● Insecure on HBOMax. This show is older than the others on this list but it is without a
doubt one you cannot miss. Created by the talented Issa Rae, the comedy on this show is next level. It shows the realities living life in your 20’s and trying to balance what comes with it. There’s not one character or one situation at least on the show that you won’t be able to relate to.
Watch these shows on a rainy day, lazy day or anytime you need to relax and you won’t regret it. Bask in these talented actors, writers, directors and producers for some of the best television.
