With a rash of smart, captivating television shows on our radar, we thought we'd share a few favorites, new and old. We'd love to know: What's on your must-watch list this season?
Peaky Blinders, Season 5: October 4th on Netflix
It debuted in 2013, but this 1920s period drama follows one family's shady business dealings and the chaos that ensues.
Schitt's Creek, Season 5: October 10th on Netflix
If you've yet to watch Schitt's Creek , there's no time like the present to fall in love with the Roses. You can easily get caught up on this bingeable series just in time for the premiere of season 5. Consider this your comic (+ much more) relief from the current state of affairs.
Modern Love, Season 1: October 18th on Amazon
The highly anticipated series release based on the beloved romance essays from The New York Times has a star-studded cast, led by Tina Fey and Anne Hathaway. Let's be honest: we'd watch this one based on our affection for the column alone. No pun intended.
Mixed Emotions: Kay Brown on Finding Her Place as a Multi-Racial Millennial
“I think I would be considered somewhat of a white passing standard, but it diminishes the fact that I am still half black”
Single Women & Their Spaces: Freelance Creative Vanessa Labi's Northern California Home
"There’s such a joy and peace to having your own space. It’s really special when fostering creative pursuits, and I think that’s why I’ve hung onto it."
Raising Kids Who Are Actively Anti-Racist: Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs and Adam St. Bernard Jacobs Are Teaching Us How
"We’re both intentional about centering our parenting around justice and creativity and are also big believers in always being a work in progress."
Castle Rock, Season 2: October 23rd on Hulu
We were sucked into the original season based in the town of Castle Rock, a portal of sorts to the various characters and storylines featured throughout Stephen King novels. An anthology, season 2 will brings an entirely new tale and cast just in time for Halloween.
Honorable Mention: Sharon Van Etten's Departure is worth every second and left us wanting a full documentary (versus the "mini" version that was created) from an artist we have loved and followed for years.
And while we're at it, is FFFest (Female Filmmaker Fest) on your radar? It's a screening and talk series celebrating the achievements of women in cinema. This year it's hosted by Quad Cinema in NYC on October 25-27, and the offerings look incredible.
