This March showcases returning seasons of prestige dramas (Ozark, My Brilliant Friend, Westworld), anticipated reboots (Amazing Stories), fan-favorite minority stories (On My BlockOne Day at a Time), and half-hour comedies (Better Things, Brockmire). All that and more in this month’s binge guide below.  


Better Things 98% (FX)

What it is: The semi-autobiographical, humanistic half-hour dramedy is not new terrain for television. But Better Things stands out from the pack thanks to Pamela Adlon, who stars as a version of herself, Sam Fox — a single mother to three daughters who is juggling life as a working actor in Hollywood.

Why you should watch it: Adlon is an Emmy Award–winning voiceover artist for King of the Hill and Golden Globe and Emmy nominee for starring on and creating FX’s Better Things. Her series is an emotional concoction of dry witticisms and familial love unlike anything else on TV. The fact that it’s one of the most realistic portrayals of single motherhood to grace the small screen is just the cherry on top. Season 4 premieres March 5 on FX.

Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, Vudu

Commitment: Approx. 14 hours (for the first three seasons)


Amazing Stories 41% (Apple TV+)

What it is: This now-classic but short-lived Emmy-winning sci-fi and fantasy series from creator Steven Spielberg not only featured a who’s-who cast of guest stars each week enlivening bold and boundary-pushing television, but it also helped further establish Spielberg’s bold and boundary-pushing filmmaking career as one of the auteurs of his age, sci-fi or otherwise.

Why you should watch it: The newly rebooted series takes inspiration from the original Amazing Stories to transport streaming audiences to never before seen worlds and creations. Spielberg serves as executive producer. The new series premieres March 6 on Apple TV+.

Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play

Commitment: Approx. 20 hours (for the original two seasons)


On My Block 93% (Netflix)

What it is: This hit dramedy with critics and audiences alike from creators Lauren Iungerich, Eddie Gonzalez, and Jeremy Haft follows a teen quartet played by relative newcomers Sierra Capri, Jason Genao, Brett Gray, and Diego Tinoco as they navigate high school hallways set in a very real inner-city world.

Why you should watch it: What’s groundbreaking about On My Block is its articulation of everyday coming-of-age hiccups (first loves, first heartbreaks, shifting friendships, growing parental pains, party culture, and more) through the lens of a world not often depicted onscreen. A rivetingly talented and diverse young cast set in the heart of inner-city Los Angeles truly takes the series’ international audience to the confined intimacies of a single American block — and all that entails. Season 3 premieres March 11 on Netflix.

Where to watch: Netflix

Commitment: Approx. 10 hours (for the first two seasons)


Elite 97% (Netflix)

What it is: This Spanish-language thriller series from creators Darío Madrona and Carlos Montero follows three teens from working class families — Samuel (Itzan Escamilla), Nadia (Mina El Hammani), and Christian (Miguel Herrán) — who, after their school collapses, are enrolled on scholarship at a prestigious private school.

Why you should watch it: With Elite, it’s all in the name. But what begins as a socially-tinged story of the haves and have-nots, as Samuel, Nadia, and Christian assimilate into their new school primed with society’s elite, eventually builds to a lurid and soapy murder mystery — with streaming-only sex appeal to spare. Season 3 premieres March 13 on Netflix.

Where to watch: Netflix

Commitment: Approx. 13 hours (for the first two seasons)


Westworld 81% (HBO)

What it is: In this hit series, the titular Westworld is a vacation destination for regular men and women to live out their most elaborate — and at times, sickening — fantasies in a Wild West–inspired society manipulated by behind-the-scenes programmers and otherwise populated by artificially intelligent “hosts.” The series’ main action begins, however, when Westworld’s hosts begin realizing they may have more control over their false reality than they think. 

Why you should watch it: Has any other new series of the last five years excited and divided critics and audiences in quite the same way as Westworld? Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s HBO debut marks one of the most thought-provoking, epic sci-fi dramas seen on the pay cable channel to date. Matched with its ambition are breathtaking performances from Hollywood heavy-hitters as varied as Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, Thandie Newton, James MarsdenEd Harris, and now Aaron Paul. Season 3 (finally) premieres March 15 on HBO.

Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, HBO Now, Microsoft, Vudu

Commitment: Approx. 20 hours (for the first two seasons)


My Brilliant Friend 97% (HBO)

What it is: Based on the beloved first installment of Italian author Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Novels series, My Brilliant Friend begins with the disappearance of Lila Cerullo. The vanishing inspires her lifelong friend, Elena Greco, to reflect on the early days that brought the two girls of different backgrounds together 50 years prior in Naples.

Why you should watch it: My Brilliant Friend’s first season became a bit of an international phenomenon upon its first season’s November 2018 premiere — and what’s not to love? Transporting period-specific sets and costumes; impeccable performances from the multi-generational actors playing the central pair of lifelong friends; an entrancing, time-hopping story told from the perspective of one of the most compelling first-person narrators to come around the small screen in some time — it all made for appointment television, and we imagine its second installment, titled My Brilliant Friend: The Story of a New Name, will have that in spades. Season 2 premieres March 16 on HBO.

Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, HBO Now, Microsoft

Commitment: Approx. 8 hours (for the first season)


Brockmire 98% (IFC)

What it is: After suffering a public meltdown in the aftermath of his wife’s string of affairs, nationally acclaimed sports announcer Jim Brockmire (Hank Azaria) turns to drugs and alcohol to cope. Then one day, 10 years later, he decides to pick himself up, move to a small town, and get back to work calling games for the minor league Morristown Frackers.

Why you should watch it: Six-time Emmy winner Azaria is perhaps best known for his voice work on The Simpsons, but it’s always a pleasure to watch him get to work in front of the camera. The laughs still land. To watch his growth through the titular Brockmire’s character arc in the first three seasons is simply great (and easily binge-able) comedic TV — and that’s not to mention the firecracker energy Amanda Peet brings as Azaria’s co-lead. Season 4 premieres March 18 on IFC.

Where to watch: Amazon, Google Play, Microsoft, Vudu

Commitment: Approx. 10 hours (for the first three seasons)


One Day at a Time 99% (Pop)

What it is: A remake of Norman Lear’s long-running 1975 sitcom of the same name, what began as Netflix’s little comedy that could is now making its grand, fan-pushed return on Pop. Stars like Justina Machado and West Side Story Oscar winner Rita Moreno all returning to continue telling the story of three generations of a Cuban-American family as they live under the same roof.

Why you should watch it: Few series today are as un-cornily heartwarming, funny, and timely as this long-in-the-making reboot. Each new season renewal, however, has come with a photo-finish, down-to-the-wire announcement, and when Netflix announced it was pulling the plug after season 3, fans corralled around it and it got saved by Pop (best known as the home of Schitt’s Creek). That fourth season premieres March 24.

Where to watch: Netflix

Commitment: Approx. 19 hours (for the first three seasons)


Ozark 82% (Netflix)

What it is: Ozark, from creators Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams, is the story of Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman, who’s also attached as director and executive producer), a financial adviser in Chicago who’s been laundering money for the cartel with his partner for years. But despite his meek, follow-the-leader personality, Marty talks his way out of a death sentence when things go awry with his crime boss and moves his family — including wife Wendy (Laura Linney) — to the Ozarks to keep the dealings afloat and the family alive.

Why you should watch it: Ozark isn’t the first series of its kind to portray good people doing bad things, but it’s about as good as those series come. The Emmy-winning series brings bleakness to the deceptive beauty of the Ozarks, and it establishes Bateman as so much more than the comedic actor most know him as today. Even more than just a vehicle for Bateman, however, it’s an ensemble drama (with an equally stellar Laura Linney and Julia Garner, no less) that tackles the power of wealth and greed, human nature, and the ties that bind within family and beyond. Season 3 premieres March 27 on Netflix.

Where to watch: Netflix

Commitment: Approx. 21 hours (for the first two seasons)

With the push of the new year behind us and the spring TV slate just around the corner, February gives viewers a little more room to luxuriate and catch up on the series they have been sleeping on. Might we suggest five? These are all slated to return for new seasons this month, and you do not want to miss them!


2 Dope Queens 94% (HBO)

What it is: 2 Dope Queens creators and stars Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams, both actresses and comedians in their own right, turned their podcast of the same name into a series of comedy specials featuring standups and celebrity guests.

Why you should watch it: Robinson and Williams — under the direction of Tig Notaro and alongside guests including Uzo Aduba, Tituss Burgess, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Jon Stewart — are grade-A entertainers. They’re brash, fearless, smart, and, most importantly, hilarious while discussing topics including sex, romance, race, hair, and living in New York. Season 2 premieres the first of its four episodes Feb. 8 on HBO.

Commitment: Approx. 5 hours (for the first season)


One Day at a Time 99% (Netflix)

What it is: A remake of Norman Lear’s long-running 1975 sitcom of the same name, Netflix’s little comedy that could stars Justina Machado and West Side Story Oscar winner Rita Moreno and follows three generations of a Cuban-American family living under the same roof.

Why you should watch it: Few series today are as un-cornily heartwarming, funny, and timely as this long-in-the-making reboot. Each new season renewal, however, has come with a photo-finish, down-to-the-wire announcement. With the promise of future seasons still in the balance, bingeing the first two seasons ahead of the third just to keep this excellent comedy going is reason enough to watch! Season 3 premieres in full Feb. 8 on Netflix.

Where to watch: Netflix

Commitment: Approx. 13 hours (for the first two seasons)


At Home With Amy Sedaris 100% (TruTV)

What it is: If At Home With Amy Sedaris is one thing, it’s a series that defies categorization — but in the best way. We’ll try anyway: Centered on Amy Sedaris and inspired by her love of hosting and making crafts (not to mention the endless supply of Barefoot Contessa–like programs on the Food Network and HGTV), the Emmy-winning series is part variety, part talk show, part scripted comedy. We recommend you just watch it to get a taste.

Why you should watch it: Sedaris has reached a point of cult comedy rockstardom in her storied career. The actress is as sharp, irreverent, whimsical, and committed as ever — all ingredients crucial to the recipe for this left-of-center laugh fest. Season 2 premieres Feb. 19 on TruTV.

Where to watch: AmazonGoogle PlayMicrosoftVudu

Commitment: Approx. 4 hours (for the first season)


Documentary Now! 94% (IFC)

What it is: If you’ve been known to unwind over the weekend by sitting down with a drink in front of an informative, entertaining, and sometimes even emotionally devastating documentary on Netflix, you’re not alone. Documentary Now! perfectly satirizes the trend with episodic installments skewering different documentaries and filmmaking styles.

Why you should watch it: Nowhere else on television can you get a creation from the minds of living comedy A-listers Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, and Rhys Thomas. Throw into the mix a writing assist from the likes of John Mulaney, and you have one of the most incisive entertainment parodies of the last decade. It’s been awhile since season 2 wrapped in 2016, so this marks a welcome return. Season 3 premieres Feb. 20 on IFC.

Where to watch: AmazonGoogle Play, MicrosoftNetflix

Commitment: Approx. 5 hours (for the first two seasons)


Better Things 98% (FX)

What it is: The semi-autobiographical, humanistic half-hour dramedy is not new terrain for television (in fact, it’s become a bit of trend). But Better Things stands out from the pack thanks to Pamela Adlon, who stars as a version of herself, Sam Fox — a single mother to three daughters who is juggling life as a working actor in Hollywood.

Why you should watch it: Adlon is an Emmy Award–winning voiceover artist for King of the Hill and Golden Globe and Emmy nominee for starring in and creating FX’s Better Things. Her series is an emotional concoction of dry witticisms and familial love unlike anything else on TV. The fact that it’s one of the most realistic portrayals of single motherhood to grace the small screen is just the cherry on top. Season 3 premieres Feb. 28 on FX.

Stranger Things, Star Trek: Discovery, The Walking Dead (Netflix; CBS All Access; AMC)

Fall TV 2017 is done, and The Good Place has triumphed — at least, by straight Tomatometer score. We’ve updated our fall TV by Tomatometer scorecard each week all season, registering every new season and TV movie (starting September 1) that got at least 10 critic reviews.

The Good Place took the top spot with a 100% Tomatometer score on 28 reviews. It’s worth noting, however, that Alias Grace, the Margaret Atwood adaptation from Netflix, has a 99% score on 69 reviews — significantly more reviews than the 13-review average of the 20 series boasting a 100% final score for the season.

So while The Good Place is perched atop the list by straight Tomatometer score, it comes in fourth after Alias Grace, Mudbound, and Stranger Things by adjusted Tomatometer score, which takes into account the number of reviews that make up the final score. Season 1 of Mindhunter rounds out the top 5, proving Netflix’s dominance over fall TV by adjusted Tomatometer.

Inhumans: Season 1 (2017)
11%

#107
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Marvel's Inhumans sets a new low standard for the MCU with an unimaginative narrative, dull design work, weak characters, and disengaging soapy melodrama.

9JKL: Season 1 (2017)
19%

#106
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Irritatingly uninspired, 9jkl leaves its talented cast out in the cold.

#105
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: An odd jumble of campiness and sincerity, homage and satire, The Orville never quite achieves liftoff.

Valor: Season 1 (2017)
21%

#104
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Valor's attempt to highlight an often overlooked segment of the armed services is undercut by a badly judged blend of military action and melodrama.

#103

Bright (2017)
27%

#103
Adjusted Score: 35163%
Critics Consensus: Bright tries to blend fantasy, hard-hitting cop drama, and social commentary -- and ends up falling painfully short of the mark on all three fronts.
Synopsis: In an alternate present day, humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time. Two police... [More]
Directed By: David Ayer

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Wisdom of the Crowd wastes a talented cast on a formulaic procedural crime drama that wavers between modest returns and unintentional laughs.

Neo Yokio: Season 1 (2017)
52%

#101
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Lacking an interesting plot or stimulating social commentary, Neo Yokio is a missed opportunity bound to bore or befuddle casual viewers and frustrate hardcore anime fans.

The Brave: Season 1 (2017)
42%

#100
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Formulaic to a fault, The Brave fails to bring anything new to the genre -- though high production values and a capable cast may be diverting enough for some.

S.W.A.T.: Season 1 (2017)
48%

#99
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite a commanding, charming performance from Shemar Moore, S.W.A.T. remains a simple procedural overrun with clichés.

Dynasty: Season 1 (2017)
49%

#98
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Dynasty's revival retains enough of its predecessor's over-the-top allure to offer a glamorous guilty pleasure in its first season, even if it never quite recaptures the magic of the original.

#97
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: South Park delivers an uncharacteristically stilted season that feels timid in its satire and unsure of who or what it's lampooning.

Damnation: Season 1 (2017)
64%

#96
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Damnation's complex character driven mystery is intriguing, though it occasionally feels like homework.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Ten Days in the Valley's instantly tense delivery of familiar material leads to an intriguing character study and engrossing mystery despite naggingly untapped potential.

#94
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Jay Pharoah proves he's leading man material even if White Famous' satirical indictments of Hollywood -- though at times irreverent -- often feel outdated.

#93
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Good Doctor's heavy-handed bedside manner undermines a solid lead performance, but under all the emotionally manipulative gimmickry, there's still plenty of room to improve.

#92
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Though perhaps a little uninspired, The Halcyon exercises well-worn period tropes with style, and its solid cast makes for watchable company.

#91
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Knightfall will appeal to fans of medieval stories who prefer historical drama and palace intrigue to soapy, melodramatic twists.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A rocky start can't keep The Punisher from pushing the boundaries of Marvel's TV universe with a fresh take on the comics-derived action thriller.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Breezily entertaining, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World relies on its likable lead to carry its still-sketchy premise, hinting at deeper potential that's yet to develop.
