Orange is the New Black has been getting tons of buzz since Nexflix released it; and if you haven’t gotten into it yet, you need to. The action follows Piper Chapman, in a woman’s jail for being involved with drug trafficking, and her encounters with colourful characters; including prostitutes and murderers. The show is officially classed as a comedy, but it also features plotlines full of drama, and tackles serious issues such as substance abuse and addiction.

Seasons: 1
Episode Run Time: ~ 22 mins

The CW really killed it this year between The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Arrow, but one show that is less-often mentioned is Emmy-winning Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. The show follows a young woman who recently relocated to be closer to her ex-boyfriend, Josh, with whom she is insanely obsessed. The show is a musical, which at first seems strange, but actually lends to the uniqueness and enjoyment of the series. Prepare yourself for flamboyant, ironic musical numbers and a thick layer of fantastic satire.

Over the years, many shows have toyed with the idea of androids integrating into our society, but Humans is among the most creative. The series focuses on “Synths”, which replace traditional maids in doing housework, and so much more. The characters, while reasonably well-rounded, are secondary to the creators’ attempt to question what “humans” really are, and striving to define where technology ends and humanity begins.

Sandman graphic novel and short story master, Neil Gaiman, has allowed four of his stories to grace the small screen in this mini-series. Although the first episode takes a while to pick up, the series is fantastic. Full of Gaiman’s trademark cleverness and tonal darkness, Gaiman explores the transformation of people. Saying any more may result in spoilers, just go watch it, it will be the deepest. most mildly disturbing 2 hours of your life.
