In 2016, Dan Fogelman introduced the world to the Big Three in This Is Us. The ensemble series opens with Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) celebrating his 36th birthday. His wife, Rebecca (Mandy Moore), goes into labor with triplets. Meanwhile, Kate (Chrissy Metz) is celebrating her birthday at a support group for people trying to lose weight. Kevin (Justin Hartley), Kate’s brother, is a successful actor searching for meaning in his life.

Then there’s Randall (Sterling K. Brown), a successful businessman working to raise his two daughters with his wife, Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson). These people are connected, but you’ll need to watch the pilot for more answers. After the pilot, you’ll understand why so many people fell in love with This Is Us, a heartwarming family-friendly show with characters you’ll care about.

Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) is an MI5 analyst who craves action. Unfortunately, Eve’s thrill-seeking attitude leads to a witness dying under her watch, leading to her firing from MI5. However, Carolyn Martens (Fiona Shaw), head of the Russia Section of MI6, appreciates Eve’s tenacity and invites her to work in their undercover division. Carolyn needs Eve’s help tracking Villanelle (Jodie Comer), a ruthless assassin who works for a secret organization called The Twelve.

Villanelle has executed many high-profile murders across Europe, and Carolyn has been tasked with bringing her down. Eve becomes obsessed with finding Villanelle, so much so that it becomes an attraction. Surprisingly, Villanelle admires Eve for her resilience. Based on the Villanelle novel series by Luke Jennings, Killing Eve is a sexy, addictive cat-and-mouse thriller with two standout performances by Oh and Comer.

Tires (2024-)

Is there a hotter comedian in Hollywood than Shane Gillis? After being fired from Saturday Night Live, Gillis hit the stand-up scene, touring all over America and building a following. Gillis then bet on himself and created Tires, a comedy series he co-created with Steve Gerben and John McKeever. The gamble paid off, as Netflix bought the series for distribution.

Tires follows the employees at the auto-repair chain, “Valley Forge Automotive Center.” Will (Gerben), the manager of Valley Forge, is always on edge as he fights to turn the business around. What doesn’t help Will’s anxiety is his vile cousin, Shane (Gillis). Tires emphasizes laughs over plot, so fans looking for multiple hilarious moments will enjoy Gillis’ sitcom.
