In this Netflix Original series, Maria Bamford portrays a version of herself. Before having a mental health breakdown, Bamford was one of the up-and-coming female comics and actors. Bamford puts the parts back together in Lady Dynamite with a positive attitude that will endear her to viewers. Fans of that other Hurwitz series, Detained Development, will recognize some similarities in that regard, as it is a surreal comedy that repeatedly breaks the fourth wall in the first season.

- Starring: Maria Bamford, Fred Melamed, Mary Kay Place, Lennon Parham, Bridget Everett

Schitt’s Creek is one of the underappreciated Netflix series, and the first two seasons of the show were added in early 2017. Eugene and Dan Levy, a father-and-son team who also stars in the show, are responsible for its creation. Simply put, not many homes have this network. On the streaming network, however, Schitt’s Creek and Netflix have a second audience. The series centers on the Rose family, who suddenly find themselves living new lives in Schitt’s Creek, a town/community known for its trailer parks after losing their wealth and luxurious fortune.

Based on the book #Girlboss, the television show 23-year-old Sophia (Britt Robertson) lacks direction in her life and receives little help from her family. Sophia, who resides in San Francisco, is passionate about fashion and has an eye for finding great deals at neighborhood vintage stores. Since she is unemployed, she decides to sell a brand-new motorcycle jacket on eBay in an effort to raise money for her bills. She has a lightbulb moment and believes she has figured out what she wants to do with her life when the jacket sells for a tidy sum.
On eBay, she plans to sell vintage clothing. However, there are obstacles along the way, and her personal life interferes as well. Her romantic interest, health, friendships, and family present some difficulties, challenges, and chances for her to lose focus on her objective. I adored Robertson’s portrayal of the Sophia character as well as the overall storyline.

Comedy legend The Netflix original series Derek, which transports us inside a nursing home and reveals a completely different side of Ricky Gervais than we’ve seen in his previous work, was created, directed, written, and stars Ricky Gervais. The main character, Gervais (Derek Noakes), is a kind, selfless, and good-natured caretaker at Broad Hill who enjoys talking about animals, reality television, and game shows.
Although Gervais hasn’t made any public comments about it, viewers have questioned whether he is portraying an autistic character or someone with a limited mental capacity because of his childlike innocence and lack of inhibitions. What is certain is that Derek is a kind man who cheers up everyone he meets, and you can do the same if you start watching the show, which has just 14 episodes in all.
- Creator: Ricky Gervais
- Starring: Ricky Gervais, Karl Pilkington, Kerry Godliman, David Earl, Tim Barlow, Arthur Nightingale

Jessica Day (Deschanel), a bubbly teacher, moves in with three single guys she has never even met after breaking up with her boyfriend after discovering his infidelity. Schmidt (Greenfield) believes he is God’s gift to women, Winston (Morris) is a former football player with an unquenchable competitive streak, and Nick (Johnson) is indeed a law school dropout who prefers to be by himself. Each character in this Fox hit has been so expertly created that they each have their own sense of humor, personalities, and the ability to stand alone.
However, when they all come together, they make the perfect quartet whose uncomfortable moments provide the majority of the comedy. As the new girl, Deschanel is simply endearing, adorable, funny, charming, and entertaining.

- Starring: Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Hannah Simone, Lamorne Morris

Will Arnett explores more of his dark and dramatic side in a new Netflix comedy that builds on the themes first seen in Bojack Horseman. There are similarities between the two shows that make us examine who we are, the choices we make, and the effects of those choices. Arnett portrays Chip, an alcoholic in recovery who has been sober for ten years following a fatal drunk driving accident. Chip seeks refuge in Venice, where he reinvents himself as a self-help mentor who facilitates AA meetings and serves as the unauthorized chancellor of the community where he seems to be well-known.
Nobody, not even Chip’s best friend Dennis (Sullivan), who gradually realizes the bull Chip is feeding him and the other people in his life, truly knows who Chip is. He is constantly eluding his past and is afraid of change. Since Chip and Dennis have feelings for the same girl, London (Kearney), their friendship is in jeopardy, and as one of them gets closer to London, long-buried secrets start to bubble to the surface. You might end up without a future if you try to escape your past.

Jane the Virgin
The show’s star, Gina Rodriguez, who plays the title role, won Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical at the Golden Globes. The series was nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical. When Jane (Gina Rodriguez), a young woman of faith employed by a Miami hotel, visits the doctor, she unintentionally undergoes artificial insemination. Whoops! Although it doesn’t sound funny, the viewer enjoys watching the tongue-in-cheek humor. Dramatic elements are present because, of course, they are.
When Jane was young, her mother became pregnant, and she worries that Jane will ruin her life if she keeps the pregnancy going, but her grandmother Alba (Coll) supports her choices. The baby’s father, who also happens to be Jane’s hotel boss, causes drama and humor, but when his wife learns what happens, all kinds of crazy things happen. If I told you about it, I wouldn’t want to give anything away.

Alexa & Katie
A brand-new Netflix Original series about family and friends for teenagers. As Alexa receives cancer treatment in the first season, the 30-minute comedy doesn’t skimp on adding some dramatic elements. Katie, her best friend, and next-door neighbor is by her side throughout the entire journey, even heading so far as to cut her hair the day before their first day of high school so she wouldn’t feel singled out or like there was a target on her. A truly endearing and moving series, it makes you laugh heartily while dealing with some very serious situations.

The Tanner family was brought back by Netflix for one of the most eagerly awaited series on the streaming service, 20 years after Full House was canceled. On February 26, Fuller House made its debut. The pilot episode featured every member of the original cast—aside from the Olsen twins—and worked as a seamless transition between the old and new shows. The nostalgia was in full force and it was awesome to see what the characters were up to after the previous show was canceled.
The show centers on D.J., who relocates into the family’s San Francisco home with her three young sons after the death of their father, and the rest of the family makes cameo appearances throughout the series aside from the pilot. . The story is reversed from the original script, and Kimmy moves in with her teenage daughter while Stephanie puts her career on hold to help raise the children. Despite being rated as a comedy, there are plenty of heart-wrenching dramatic scenes as well. The live studio audience supports this by providing a lot of laughs, so don’t be fooled.

- Starring: Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, Michael Campion, Elias Harger, Soni Nicole Bringas, John Brotherton

F for Family
Among the lesser-known Netflix original series. Bill Burr, a seasoned stand-up comedian, created and starred in the film F is for Family. On Netflix, the animated program made its debut. Given that it is animated, comparisons to The Simpsons, Family Guy, and other animated series centered around families are inevitable. As it happens, the first season’s six episodes serve as hopefully a taster for the second season’s 10 episodes. I’m hoping the show will be on Netflix for a very long time because the second season was such a significant improvement over the first, which was good in its own right.
