The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin (2024)

A British historical comedy, The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin stars Noel Fielding (The Great British Bake-Off) as the title character. Turpin is, in fact, a real person. He was an English highwayman who was executed for horse theft in the 1700s after earning a reputation as a poacher, burglar, and killer. But this series is, as the name implies, a fictional account of his life.

As leader of the Essex Gang, petty criminal Turpin is being pursued by vigilante Jonathan Wilde and an organization known as The Syndicate. It’s a humorous take on an otherwise chilling tale that has been wel- received by critics and viewers alike. Reviewers like Barbara Ellen of the Observer UK praise the “droll and silly” nature of the show, along with its “wry, surrealist kick.”

Extraordinary (2023)

Now in its second season, Extraordinary is likely one of the superhero comedies you hadn’t heard about. The British series is about an alternate world where people gain special powers when they turn 18. But Jen (Máiréad Tyers) is 25 and frustratingly still waiting for hers to kick in. Her life is anything but rosy, as she’s working a dead-end job, dating a man who literally flies away from her after they are intimate, and living as a third wheel with her best friend, Carrie (Sofia Oxenham), and her boyfriend, Kash (Bilal Hasna). It doesn’t help that Jen’s stepsister immediately received her powers the moment she became an official adult, sparking intense jealousy.

Extraordinary might be about a woman who lacks actual powers, but it’s also commentary on the pressures young people feel to fit in, live up to expectations, and compete with their peers. With a perfect 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating for its first season, Extraordinary beautifully weaves satirical comedy with deeper, more emotional moments as Jen struggles to find her place in a powerful world when she seemingly has none.

The Gentlemen (2024)

Receiving generally positive reviews since it debuted earlier this month, The Gentlemen is one of those shows you might have heard of, and maybe even saw it pop up on your Netflix recommended list, but you never thought to start streaming. You should, because the Guy Ritchie action comedy is very entertaining. It stars Theo James (The White Lotus) as Edward “Eddie” Horniman, the newly appointed Duke of Halstead following the passing of his father. But he soon discovers that his family land is being used by a drug lord who has no plans to relocate his empire. Now, the former United Nations peacekeeper must figure out how to keep the peace on his home turf.

Serving as a spinoff to Ritchie’s 2019 movie of the same name, The Gentlemen offers a bit of everything, from plot twists to comedy, violence and compelling characters. It’s the type of show that’s perfect to watch when you aren’t sure what kind of show you want to watch.

Stream The Gentlemen on Netflix.

A woman stares at the camera in Dune: Part Two.

Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson is one of the most compelling performers working today, and the current acclaim of Dune: Part Two only elevates that status further. The last year has been especially exciting for Ferguson due to her roles as Lady Jessica in director Denis Villeneuve's excellent Dune: Part Two and disavowed MI6 agent Ilsa Faust in Christopher McQuarrie's Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One.

Ferguson has also impressed on the small screen, too, with her ongoing lead role as Juliette Nichols earning praise in showrunner Graham Yost's post-apocalyptic adaptation of author Hugh Howey's Silo trilogy for Apple TV+. If you want to see more of the actress, watch these three below-the-radar movies and TV shows.
