Big Little Lies (2017-2019); 2 seasons; 14 episodes

 

 

Based on Liane Moriarty’s bestselling book, and starring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Zoё Kravitz, this subversive, darkly comedic drama weaves a tale of murder and mischief as it explores society’s myth of perfection and the contradictions that exist beneath our idealized façade of marriage, sex, parenting, and friendship. Set in the tranquil, seaside town of Monterey, California, nothing is as it seems. Doting moms, successful husbands, adorable children, beautiful homes. This allusion of perfection begins to erode the night of a school fundraiser which leaves the community reeling as the “Monterey Five” bond together to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. Iconic actress Meryl Streep joins this stellar cast for season two, which further explores the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage, and the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode…the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom. Alexander Skarsgård, Adam Scott, James Tupper, and Jeffrey Nordling co-star.

His Dark Materials (2019-); 1 season; 8 episodes

His Dark Materials takes place in a world parallel to our own, where a human’s soul exists outside one’s body in the form of a talking animal called a “daemon.” The all-powerful Magisterium rule over this world where they suppress any knowledge that attempts to challenge its ideas, particularly around the theory that multiple worlds exist.
Season One of this compelling HBO series follows Lyra (Dafne Keen), a young orphan who was left as a baby at Oxford’s Jordan College by her uncle Lord Asriel (James McAvoy) and desires a life of adventure beyond the confines of her bookish, scholarly surroundings. But when Lyra’s best friend goes missing, her search for her kidnapped friend uncovers a plot involving stolen children and transforms into a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon known as Dust. Over the course of the season, as she journeys through the different worlds – including our own – Lyra encounters extraordinary beings and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living and the dead at stake.

But when Rory’s attention turns from dreams of private school and Harvard to thoughts of boys and adolescent self-reliance, single mom Lorelai begins noticing more of her own rebellious youth–only 16 years ago–in Rory.

In the wealthy, seaside community of Neptune, the rich and powerful make the rules. They own the town and the high school, and they desperately try to keep their dirty little secrets just that…secret. Unfortunately for them, there’s Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell), a smart, fearless 17-year-old apprentice private investigator dedicated to solving the town’s toughest mysteries. During the day, high school senior Veronica negotiates the halls of Neptune High like any average teenage girl. By night, she helps with her father Keith’s (Enrico Conantoni) private investigator business, sneaking through back alleys and scoping out no-tell motels with a telescopic-lens camera–while studying her math book–in an attempt to uncover the California beach town’s darkest secrets.

Veronica Mars Trailer Season 1

Bonus: Veronica Mars (2019); 1 season; 8 episodes
Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working-class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.

Trailer for Veronica Mars 2019 Bonus Season

 

Other series I would recommend include:
—  Black List (which has very strong female characters),
— Scandal  (lots of strong female roles),
CSI-Los Angeles has added more female characters as the seasons roll by,
— How to Get Away with Murder  which is about to wrap up for the series finale.
— Grey’s Anatomy has  16 seasons (which will be the LONGEST binge-watch of any of these shows. )
