    I think you'd love Please Like Me, it's an australian sitcom following the life of a newly out gay guy and his friends, it feels a lot like New Girl at times, just darker in humor and a little more rural lol I'm guessing a lot of people have rec'd it, but Normal People is such a beautiful show!!! And in terms of stand up, you might like Hannah Gadsby... I'm not sure, like her comedy is almost not comedy but I love all the specials you mentioned, so you might like her stuff too? Dunno

    Hey Ashley, I love your channel! But lately, there have been several critical youtube videos about you, and I think that a response to them is something you should think about. Overall, I think you are a very unproblematic youtuber, but there are always things to improve on for everyone! No hate, I of course am still supportive of your content, but I'm also in favor of constructive criticism!! :))

    You should totally watch Skam (Norway)! It focuses on topics such as relationship difficulties, identity, eating disorders, sexual assault, homosexuality, mental health issues, religion, and forbidden love! Its such an incredible show! It also managed the show to come up as remakes here in the US, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, & The Netherlands!

    I loved these recommendations! Garth Marenghi's Darkplace is a good dark British horror-comedy series. Just started Derry Girls (hella funny Irish accents). Ohhh and Midnight Diner is one of my fav (Japanese Netflix series) and Troll Hunter (Norwegian "found footage doc") is so good you'll be rewatching forever....xD (also also Grace and Frankie but I'm almost 30 and love Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin). P.s. I re-listen to good podcasts too lol

  59. violinka0517


    Amazing list, thank you for the recs!! Something I think you might like based on these is Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. An absolutely unique way of film-making and musical-making, created by and starring Rachel Bloom, one of the greatest talents of our times IMO. It centers around an extremely important issue which is not often depicted, let alone so well and so... realistically (kinda), on television: mental health (no more info to avoid spoilers). There is a lot of second-hand embarrassement, especially towards the beginning, but it has SUCH a well-written plot, ingenious music, and possibly the most amazing character developments through four seasons I have ever seen.

    You could just skip that episode. House is actually iconic and it was written almost a decade ago. Of course the values and themes were different for the time but that shouldn't hold you back from experiencing great stories

  64. Sarah Roloff

    Sarah Roloffदिवसापूर्वी

    i highly recommend watching “circle” on netflix! it’s a movie. but my sister and i stumbled upon it one day and it was like a hidden gem. it’s about all of these people who vote someone out of the circle every few minutes and it kills them until the last person. it is really interesting how prejudice comes into play. i recommend watching it with a friend and talking it through because a lot of stuff happens very fast. i also recommend looking up theories after!

    Fleabag is so good! Its got that dry Brit comedic sense with a bit of US black comedy sensibility thrown into the storytelling. I was trying to describe it to a friend and ended up saying ‘like Peep Show with a Bojack Horseman streak’. I didn’t think of Fargo but it totally sits in that vein too. Also sorry to be nitpicky but didn’t Boo get hit by a bicycle, then a car and then another bike?

    One show that everyone seems to overlook but deserves the attention would be DARK. It's a german TV show that takes the idea of time travel to a whole another level. It is crazy, it will give you goosebumps, you will not sleep, it is that good. Changing the topic, I would really like to say, I am so glad that someone finally recognized the TV show Maniac, it is such a good show, soooo unique and worth watching.
