1. Tuca & Bertie
From the production designer of BoJack Horseman comes a new animated comedy called Tuca & Bertie, a raunchy whirlwind journey into the minds and hearts of two best friends facing down their 30s. Tuca, a boisterous wild child voiced by Tiffany Haddish, and Bertie, a nervous overachiever voiced by Ali Wong, battle daily injustices that range from finding clean underwear to sexual harassers in the workplace. The weird and wild visual gags inherent in a world populated by anthropomorphic birds, cats, plants, and snakes are sure to delight — whether you're blitzed or not.
2. Dead to Me
Linda Cardelleni and Christina Applegate star in Netflix's new dramedy Dead to Me. The two comedy icons play widows who meet at a support group and find an unexpected connection as strangers with different, often opposing, roadmaps to grief. There's a deeper mystery linking the two, however, and as the show unfolds, the pair's growing, odd-couple friendship careens into destruction like a slow-motion car crash. It's a quick and compelling binge to finish out the weekend.
3. Knock Down the House
Knock Down the House is a unique political documentary solely for the fact that when you finish watching you'll feel real hope again. Following the congressional bids of four women across the country, Knock Down the House tells the story of the 2018 midterm elections from the perspectives of regular citizens who were moved to overthrow D.C.'s ruling class — and then use that power to actually help their local constituents. Of the four candidates, only Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez was elected, but the urgency, passion, and drive of all four women foretell a new kind of political landscape: one in which power returns to the people.
