1 Season
Genre Comedy
Cast Debra Jo Rupp, Kurtwood Smith, Callie Haverda

Kaleidoscope (2023)
Kaleidoscope
tv-ma 1 Season
Genre Crime, Drama
Cast Giancarlo Esposito, Paz Vega, Rufus Sewell
Created by Eric Garcia
Giancarlo Esposito leads this ensemble-driven heist series, which follows a group of criminals as they plan and execute a multibillion-dollar robbery of a heavily secured underground vault. While that might seem like a straightforward premise, the show uses an experimental style of delivery for the tale, with Netflix randomizing the order of the first seven episodes, which are set both before and after the heist. This results in a saga that differs in some intriguing ways based on when you’re introduced to each of the characters and their backstories, with the heist itself serving as the show’s set-in-stone final chapter. Which episode will you watch first?

HBO Max

The Last of Us (2023) new
The Last of Us
tv-ma 1 Season
Genre Drama, Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Action & Adventure
Cast Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey
Created by Craig Mazin, Neil Druckmann
The hit video game franchise heads to the screen in this adaptation that casts Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) as Joel, a weathered survivor tasked with smuggling a teenage girl across a dangerous landscape filled with threats both human and otherwise. Game of Thrones actress Bella Ramsey portrays Ellie, the teenage girl who holds an important secret. One of the greatest game franchises of all time sets a high bar for the TV series, but early reviews suggest the show is off to a great (and appropriately heart-wrenching) start.
Doom Patrol (2019)
Doom Patrol
tv-ma 4 Seasons
Genre Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Drama
Cast Diane Guerrero, April Bowlby, Joivan Wade
Created by Jeremy Carver
The most unlikely superheroes of all time are back for a fourth season of bizarre adventures. If you’ve been following along, you know the premise: The series follows a group of reluctant heroes whose powerful abilities are the result of tragic accidents that have left them psychologically scarred — and physically scarred, in some cases — and now they spend their time bickering with each other and trying to avoid doing anything heroic whatsoever. Trouble always seems to find them, though, and it’s usually a very, very weird kind of trouble. Come for the flurry of F-bombs and clever dialogue, but stay for the terrifying “butt-monsters” and other, even weirder threats to reality as we know it.

Beautifully realized on the screen, the series stars Logan actress Dafne Keen, whose character’s journey takes her from one end of the world to another, and through the barriers between her world and others, finding friends and allies among talking polar bears, sky-hopping nomads, and powerful wielders of the mysterious substance known as Dust.
