You’ve kept up to date with all the new and returning shows coming this month and beyond, likely thanks to our handy guides! But there are always hidden gems that you might have glossed over. Is it really something you’ll want to watch? You haven’t heard or read much about the show, so maybe it’s best to wait. We have you covered.

Here, we highlight three hidden February streaming TV shows that might have flown under your radar but are worth checking out. Chances are you probably haven’t even heard of these shows. One new FX series, in particular, promises to breathe new life into a fascinating story that was last adapted way back in the ‘80s.

A Bloody Lucky Day (2024)

A Korean series based on the webtoon of the same name, A Bloody Lucky Day was released in two parts in November and December 2023, but it didn’t make its way to North America until this month. Oh Taek (Lee Sung-min) is a taxi driver working to make a living. When he’s offered a high fee to transport a passenger to Mokpo, he agrees, albeit reluctantly. But as they travel, Oh Taek soon realizes the man he is stuck in a vehicle with is a dangerous serial killer. It’s a scenario that screams unimaginable tension and panic.

But Oh Taek quickly adapts into cool, calm, and collected survival mode, using his astute sense and resourcefulness to hopefully make it out alive and not become a victim. Intense and gripping, A Bloody Lucky Day has a thrilling premise to keep you invested through all 10 episodes.

Tracker (2024)

Justin Hartley captured hearts as Kevin Pearson on This is Us, and he’s back on the small screen in Tracker. The drama is already set up for success, premiering immediately following Super Bowl 2024 and all those great commercials. Hartley plays a very different character in this series, a man named Colter Shaw, a survivalist traveling across the U.S. looking for “rewards.” He’s an expert tracker and uses his skills to help law enforcement solve some of their most difficult cases.

With all the makings of a cookie-cutter police procedural, Tracker sounds like several of them mashed into one, from Will Trent to Poker Face. Whether the series lives up to the hype and can last beyond a single season remains to be seen; shows of this genre tend to become long-running or peter out quickly. But if you’re looking for a solid new police procedural to fill a hole while you wait for a favorite to return or mourn the end of another, Tracker is a worthy contender.

Shōgun (2024)

You might be familiar with the 1980 TV series of the same name, based on the James Clavell novel. So, too, is this iteration of Shōgun, the story of a female samurai, an English sailor, and a power daimyo who are all shipwrecked in Japan. They each have their own challenges: Lado Mariko (Anna Sawai, who currently also appears in Apple TV+ series’ Pachinko and Monarch: Legacy of Monsters) has friction with her family, John Blackthorne (Cosmo Jarvis) is unfamiliar with the Japanese culture, and Lord Toranaga (Mortal Kombat’s Hiroyuki Sanada) is fighting off political rivals.

The story in Shōgun is fictional, but it’s loosely based on real historical facts, with Blackthorne based on William Adams, an English navigator who trained with daimyo Tokugawa Ieyasu (on whom Lord Toranaga is based) to become a powerful samurai. Mariko, meanwhile, is based on Hosokawa Gracia, a member of the aristocratic Akechi family in the 1500s and 1600s. Called a must-watch by early reviewers, with Time Magazine referring to Shōgun not as a remake but as a “radical reimagining,” the historical drama is poised to be one of the best new shows of 2024, and one you might not even have heard of yet. There are 10 episodes in the first season.

Stream Shōgun on Hulu.

3 great Amazon Prime Video TV shows to watch instead of the 2024 Oscars
A ma stands in silhouette in Monsieur Spade.

The 2024 Oscars aren't for everyone. You can be a movie fan and not really care for the red carpet interviews, the long victory speeches, the cheesy musical numbers, or the tribute to those who passed away in the past year that's always a downer.

If that's the case, and you're looking for some good TV shows to watch, just head over to Amazon Prime Video. It has a lot of shows, but there are three in particular that are worth your time. One is a 2024 show that just debuted, another is one of 2023's most underrated series, and the final one is a sci-fi series that should appeal to fans of Denis Villeneuve's Dune movies.

If you like Monk on Netflix, watch these three great TV shows right now
Tony Shalhoub in Mr. Monk's Last Case: A Monk Movie.

After more than a decade away from screens, Adrian Monk returned for one last adventure in Mr. Monk's Last Case. The movie was a perfect opportunity to remember why so many of us fell in love with Tony Shalhoub's obsessive-compulsive detective in the first place, and also a great excuse to watch Monk (currently streaming on Netflix) if you haven't already.

If you've already seen that USA comedy, though, you might be looking for other shows that will give you roughly the same feeling. Here are three great TV shows you can check out if you love Monk and want something that feels a lot like it.
