Our top pick for December

Halt and Catch Fire (2014)

Halt and Catch Fire

Genre Drama
Created by Christopher Cantwell, Christopher C. Rogers
Cast Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Mackenzie Davis
Seasons: 4
tv-14
Here’s a challenge for you in December: How many episodes of Halt and Catch Fire can you watch before it departs Netflix? This AMC original series was overshadowed by other cable hits during its four-season run. Regardless, this 1980s period piece is one of the best shows of the Peak TV era. Lee Pace stars as Joe MacMillan, an enigmatic tech visionary who recruits Gordon Clark (Scoot McNairy) to help him reverse-engineer the PC and take on IBM at its own game. Regardless, the heart of this series belongs to Gordon’s wife, Donna Clark (Kerry Bishé), and her partnership with Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis) in a startup video game company and other ventures. This is a series that mines high drama out of the rise of tech, and it still deserves to find a wider audience.

Broadchurch (2013) new

Genre Crime, Drama, Mystery
Created by Chris Chibnall

Cast David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Julie Hesmondhalgh
Seasons: 3
tv-ma
David Tennent has had a storied career before and after this dark British police procedural, not only playing The Doctor in Dr. Who but also the demon Crowley in Good Omens and the evil Kilgrave in Jessica Jones. In Broadchurch, Tennant is delightfully broody as Detective Inspector Alec Hardy, who is sent to the titular seaside town to help solve the murder of an 11-year-old boy. But Tennant doesn’t steal scenes from the force that is Olivia Coleman (The Crown), whose local Detective Sgt. Ellie Miller butts heads with Hardy as they work together to solve the case.
