1. “Dead to Me”
If you’re looking for a quick watch that gives you plenty of laughs and cries, “Dead to Me” is perfect for you. Starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, the show follows two women who meet at a grief support group. However, things begin getting weird when secrets are slowly revealed and danger becomes prominent.

Based on the comic books, “The Umbrella Academy” tells the story of seven children who were adopted by an eccentric billionaire to become a crew of superheroes. Sounds weird, right?

5. “New Girl”
If you’re a TV fanatic, you’ve probably gone through many popular comedies. However, one series that we consider to be highly underrated is “New Girl.” This sitcom follows a quirky girl named Jess who moves into an apartment with three single guys after her harsh breakup. “New Girl” definitely brings the funny to an awkward situation and includes a variety of great gags and bits that run through the show.
