    Ashley I highly recommend Sharp Objects (hbo), it is very explicit and triggering but I think you would enjoy It! I cried a lot but I think it is very well done

    Honestly I used to be a Tina Fey stan too but she is a white feminist and Kimmy Schmidt is the greatest example of this. From a whitewashed Native American character which drew criticism - Fey's response was doubling down on that storyline - to Kimmy's Vietnamese boyfriend's name being the butt of the least imaginative joke. That's not even including the episode supposedly critiquing outrage culture that somehow ends up being at the expense of Asian Americans. Sorry, but Tina Fey is not someone I would sacrifice any child for.

    If you're looking for a funny show you should check out "Jane the Virgin" it is very over the top, but in a good way, because it doesn't take itself to seriously.

    i recommend you to watch ¨The bold type¨, 3 girl friends, they are feminists, powerful, smart , and fearless, ur gonna like it because it have a fashion sense and one of the characters is actually into the fashion world, and she is trying to discover what she wanna do in this major, she tried to be stylist, designing, and modeling, and this show represent women issues, and it also have an lgbtq characters, it is the best, it represent all the women.

    Ima just review your reviews. I didnt watch fleabag, so i‘m intrigued. Crashing was fine Fargo seems cool, i might watch it.. Love: i hated both characters. I still kinda liked the show because i‘m sad and lonely myself but goddamn these people are unlikable Love new girl, agreed Fuck parcs and rec. Didnt watch 30rock, but iwanna watch it Unbreakable: thought it was unfunny and predictable so i stopped watching at some point but maybe it has some merit. Didnt watch sex and the city. Dont trust the b in apt 23 is very chill and enjoyable. Jane by design, NO CLUE what it is.. House is a dick, but decent show. Stopped watching at some point tho Bojack horseman is probably the best animated show i‘ve ever seen (🎶back in the ninetees i was in a very faamous tv-shoow🎵 fucking amazing) John mulaney is cool, i like him too. Big mouth is cool too. Daniel sloss, who dis? Katherine ryan is cool af. Love her too Bo burnham is honestly the best Years and years, dont know of this show The girlfriend experience, no clue. Maniac is surprisingly good. Jonah hill is way too talented Big little lies is also unknown to me Friends from college. Like the cast, disliked the show. I stopped watching tho, so once again, it might be good. Better call saul is soooo good. Fucking love the show. (I know my comment would be better with timestamps but i‘m lazy, so i‘m sorry) You missed some shows i like: Hollywood Mindhunter Community Vikings (first 4seasons) Love death and robots Mad men Dogs of berlin The end of the fucking world (s1) Peaky blinders F is for family (bill burrs animated show) Master of none Ozark Brookyln99 Suits Castle The menatlist Lucifer Prisonbreak (s1 especially) People probably know most of em but some might be unknown. My favourite is californication btw. Loved that one.

    Hey Ashley, I've enjoyed listening to you for the past few years and feel like I can really relate with you. The way you express the intricacies of life is something I especially admire. Some of the shows you recommended that I've watched are John Mulaney and Love. Idk if you watch kdramas, tbh I don't really, but there's this one I recently watched that I think you might like called Itaewon class. It touches on social taboos in South Korea "A sociopath. An ex-convict. A transgender. A high school dropout. And a guy of half Korean, half African descent," and overcomes it in the most bad ass way with an OP girl who isn't that delicate dependent-on-a-guy-type. In fact, she is a girl that helps save and heals the main guy. Anyway ahhh I'm so grateful to be able to hear your brain during this time. I have such few friends and the few that I do I don't get ones that do deep dive conversations like you - this includes my SO that I live with -sigh-. It's quite refreshing. Cheers! P.S. I really think you should pay a visit to your family and take a break some time with everything going on :')

    I recommend Good Omens! It's a TV show based on a book with the same name that's written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Neil Gaiman also wrote the TV Script for Good Omens! It's about Armageddon(The End of the world Bible Version) but it's very funny. An Angel and a Demon who have lived on earth together since the beginning of it are the main focus.

    When you like a show about teenagers and their mental health I would recommend the series The end of the fucking world. It just makes you wonder what will happen next, because oh boy, you´re going to be in on a wild ride. Also on a similar note is a british series called My mad fat diary. I think it accurately describes a life of a depressed teenager and that there is a way of getting better. And overall both of these shows have a really good character development.

    i love your usual videos but to be honest your film/show videos are my favorites!!! i'd love to see what you'd think of crazy ex girlfriend, specially regarding the character development and the twist on romcom tropes. if you haven't seen it, i'd recommend giving it a chance, i think you might like it not only because it stars well developed female characters but it's funny and relevant and self aware AND a comedy musical.

    I agree with so many of your choices :) I was really impressed with Fleabag, especially because I loved the second season even more than the first one which is rare. And you reminded me of how awesome Big Little Lies is. Here are a few shows I really liked throughout the years: A really heartwarming show that I have watched 3 times is Lovesick, which follows the lives of 3 roommates throughout their twenties by revisiting one roommate's past relationships. I also really liked You're the worst, which to me is a lot like Love, it is a pretty interesting look at relationships and mental health. The good place is a comedy about life after death, and The good wife is an incredibly good TV show (coming from someone who passionately dislikes lawyer TV shows) about a woman who tries to go back into law after her husband who is in the public eye cheats on her and it takes a look at her struggles, successes, the way she develops into her own person again after being "the wife of..." for a long time. I hope you like them, if you decide to watch them and I hope you stay sane :) Life is very very very slowly going back to normal here in Germany, you guys will make it, too

    I strongly recommend "Little Fires Everywhere", it's rare I actually sit down and watch shows especially ones that I have to wait every week for but I was sitting waiting every Thursday for new episodes to come out. In short, it follows two families one is portrayed as the 'perfect' family in the perfect suburb and when a mother and daughter move to the same suburb problems arise and so many secrets come out. i was sitting there audibly gasping at what was going down in the show, so anyone pleaseeeee watch!!!! :)
