Schitt’s Creek takes a premise which could have easily been mean-spirited – a wealthy family struggling to survive in a small community – and transforms it into one of the most hilarious, heartfelt TV shows. This Emmy-awarded comedy invites you to be infatuated with the Rose family, and their residents throughout six highly addictive seasons. These characters may be a bit sexist, but their mutual respect and caring for one another will make you laugh out loud. Schitt’s Creek is worth a look for Catherine O’Hara’s accents and her outfits, but there’s more. — Belen Edwards, Entertainment Fellow

Sweet Tooth is a fantastic addition to Netflix’s 2021 line-up. Its big gamble on children’s wonder was well worth it. Although the story takes place in the aftermath of a devastating virus that decimates the human population, and causes the collapse of civilisation (yikes), Sweet Tooth tells the tale from Gus’s perspective. Gus is a hybrid of a human-deer who was sheltered by his father until the end when shelter was no longer possible. Gus’s journey through the world he barely knew existed is a beautiful coming-of-age story with a talented supporting cast and a flawless cute-to-concerning ratio. A.N. __S.69__

You can cry to Coach Taylor’s pre-game speech, cheer for Tim Riggins’ weaponized himbo Tim Riggins or simply marvel at Mrs. Coach’s perfect hair. All reactions will be valid up to Friday night lights. A.N.

There are many coming-of-age comedy movies, but none quite like Never Have I Ever. It’s the only high-school show to feature Devi, an Indian-American girl, as its main character (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan plays Devi). John McEnroe is the narrator, which makes it one of tennis’s most famous shows. It’s yet another and underneath the riotous teenage hijinks it is a delicate exploration of guilt, grief, and shame. We laughed and we cried. Ben was poor, so we looked around at Devi. We loved her for that and more. — Angie Han, Deputy Entertainment Editor (*)

The series’ final triumphant episode is made all the better by this subtlety. The story is captivating, but it’s also very pretty. The heroine is seen competing in stunning locations around the globe while sporting beautiful period costume and perfect eyeliner. Brilliant female lead and swoon-worthy aesthetics?
