Fall is officially here which means more time inside due to the chilly weather coming your way. What better past time to do than binging your favorite shows. We have the the top 5 shows you should start watching today.
- The Wonder Years
- Set in the same era as the original Wonder Years — and with the OG Kevin Arnold himself, Fred Savage, directing episodes — this remake centers on young Dean (played as a 12-year-old by Elisha “EJ” Williams, and voiced as an adult narrator by Don Cheadle) and his parents Bill (Dulé Hill) and Lillian (Saycon Sengbloh) dealing with everyday life as a Black family in middle-class in Montgomery, Alabama. The first Wonder Years is a classic; this unique take on the idea (produced by Lee Daniels and run by Dave writer Saladin Patterson) sounds teed up to be the same.
2. Insecure Issa Rae and Insecure showrunner Prentice Penny say they want to go out while the acclaimed comedy is still on top, which means this upcoming fifth season will also be its last. When we last saw Issa and Molly (Yvonne Orji), their friendship was in a very precarious place. Can the two survive their final season together? Will Issa and Lawrence ever make it work longterm? And can Rae and Orji keep working together in many more shows after this, pretty please?
3. Collin in Black & White –
Former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose kneeling protests against police brutality rendered him unemployable in the NFL, finds a very public second act as co-creator — with Ava DuVernay — narrator, and inspiration for this drama about his teenage years (where he’s played by Jaden Michael). Nick Offerman and Mary Louise-Parker co-star as his adoptive parents. DuVernay’s last big Netflix project was the staggering, Emmy-winning When They See Us; hopefully, this one follows suit.
4. Squid Games – Hundreds of cash-strapped contestants accept an invitation to compete in children’s games for a tempting prize, but the stakes are deadly.
