The Horror of Dolores Roach (2023)
WATCH ON AMAZON
The Horror of Dolores Roach is a dark horror comedy that'll make you laugh till your side hurts (or maybe scream, too - don't say we didn't warn you!). Justina Machado (you know her from 'One Day at a Time') absolutely slays as Dolores Roach, a woman who just did time in prison for a bogus weed charge, only to accidentally take out an abusive beach dude while giving him a massage.
Machado brings the character to life flawlessly, juggling the weight of a world that's left her behind with a can-do attitude that'd put make Martha Stewart proud. Based (quite loosely) on The Legend of Sweeney Todd, this series flips the script on the Demon Barber's tale and gives us a reluctant, kinda-likable hero who we can't help but root for, no matter how many horrors we witness along the way. Sound exciting? You better believe it!
Primo is Spanish for "nephew," but in this hilarious coming-of-age comedy, it's like a tornado of uncles pulling Rafa (Ignacio Diaz-Silverio) in different directions. Shea Serrano, the mastermind behind this series, is famous for his witty writing and internet fame.

Nathan for You (2013)
Nathan Fielder writes, acts and directs the concept of Nathan for You, and while the show was a little out of our comfort zones (it could be for you too), it was rewarding when we decided to stick till the end. He has a unique trait – creating marketing campaigns that are far from normal but cater to the individual needs of small businesses.
While things don’t always look good on paper, he does it with the best intentions and ensures that nothing but his best is displayed for us to see. Nathan’s awkwardness is the element that keeps you laughing.
High School (2022)
By bringing the best-selling memoir written by teen musicians Tegan and Sara Quin, High School is a heartwarming show that brings home one point – you will always have your family by you at the end of the day.

Determined not to let this stop him, Dave must befriend Calvin, their next-door neighbor, as a first step to making their move easier for the community. The Neighborhood is a fun show for the family to get together and watch.
A League of Their Own (2022)
Women do get things done, and A League of Their Own is a show that pitches itself to success with a savvy plot and an all-star cast. Set in a time after World War II, the show highlights the rise of women’s professional baseball, like the embers in a dying fire.
The inspiration for the movie is taken from the 1992 film of the same name. A well-written plot, A League of Their Own portrays complex characters in a time when America didn’t believe in women playing professional baseball. With the opening season such a spectacular hit, you’ll be waiting just as eagerly as us for the next season.
Sprung is probably the most contextually relevant comedy show to come out of the global pandemic. Following life of Jack, finds himself released from his life sentence in prison due to the coronavirus outbreak and lands himself in a group of formerly incarcerated people.

Also, the line that sticks with you after you finish watching it (we won’t reveal any spoilers!). Jamie, a Michelin star chef is on a long-awaited holiday, and everything seems to be going perfectly.

Two and a Half Men (2003)
If we could create a list of iconic comedy shows of all time, Two and a Half men would easily breeze into that list. The daily lives of chiropractor and broke father Alan Harper who lives with his older alcoholic, playboy millionaire brother Charlie along with his cute but forever hungry son Jake – sarcastic wit couldn’t get much better than this.
If nothing, the simple comedic chemistry between the cast, especially with Jake makes this show an absolute hit.
Back to the Rafters (2021)
Dave and Julie Rafter – are two characters that represent man’s yearning to find a life in the countryside. In Back to the Rafters, the Rafter family tries to find their place in Buradeena, where they feel an incredible calling.

A sketch comedy show that uses the world as its subject, The Moth Effect features comedians from Australia using the people around them to make fun of hypocrisy. If you want more details, the cast should interest you – Bryan Brown, Miranda Otto, Jack Thompson, Vincent D’Onofrio and David Wenham.
The fun elements are sticky, and you’ll be pining for season 2 quite soon.
The Lake (2022)
The Lake is a fine mix of witty comic performances that blend right in with a nuanced story fit for all audiences. Justin and Billie have a history – and they cannot see eye to eye. Justin takes her to the lake where he spent his childhood summers.
This show is different from the rest of the coming-of-age genre shows because it offers communication that both kids and adults can sympathize with.
Kids in the Hall (2022)
There’s a lot of twisted comedy in Kids in the Hall, but the show’s jokes still stand the test even after nearly three decades. While the nonsensical humor is addictive, the real hook is the chemistry between Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, Bruce McCulloch and Scott Thompson.
Add to this the fact that this is a Canadian show, and you have a winner. Their portrayal of the middle class without dispensing on pop culture references or celebrity impressions makes this show one of the best collections in sketch comedy.
How would you handle the situation when you find out your newly married wife turns out to be a real-life witch with some serious magical powers? And your new mother-in-law is, in fact, doing her best to break up your marriage because she hates the fact that you’re a mortal?
That’s where Darrin Stephens finds himself after marrying Samantha, a full-powered witch. Bewitched is a story that offers a fresh premise with stellar acting from Elizabeth Montgomery, who plays Samantha. A perfect weekend binge, we recommend you tune in and, sure as nails, you will not be disappointed.
I Love That For You (2022)
If there’s one new show that stole our hearts and our laughs, it’s I Love That For You. Based on true events, Joanna Gold finally achieves her lifelong dream of working as an on-air shopping channel host and working alongside her idol Jackie Stilton.
But when things go south for her, she uses an incident from her past a small white lie to keep her job - her experience as a leukemia survivor. With a workplace sitcom that manages to poke fun at the highly competitive home shopping environment, we think this show has a lot to offer in the upcoming seasons.
Good Times (1974)
How does a poor Black family manage to make the best of what they have, even if they live in the Chicago housing projects? Watch Good Times, and you’ll see for yourself. The show finds its foundation in the charming chemistry between Esther Rolle and John Amos, who during their interactions with neighbors, superintendents and friends, deliver a joyful performance to remember for ages.
The show finds the right balance between showing a sense of humanity while maintaining comedy. Even though the show is from another time altogether, you’ll still be surprised at how much of it is relatable to this day.
The Outlaws (2021)
The Outlaws takes seven miscreants from very different backgrounds and puts them in a setting that brings out the funniest parts of them. Rani, John, Christian, Myrna, Gabby, Greg and Frank are all sentenced to community work for their respective crimes.
But their work suddenly takes a turn for the worst when they discover money with more zeroes than they can count, but there’s a dangerous group after it too. This show earns its stop on the watch lists, and the sweet spot between comedy and drama tickles our guilty muscles to keep binging.
The Legend of Vox Machina (2022)
The Legend of Vox Machina is a pure treat for fans of RPG-style video games. Vox Machine is a band of 8 delinquents who will do anything for gold. But when the kingdom of Exandria tasks them to save them from dark magical forces that threaten to starve the people, they must rise to the occasion to become the real heroes of their land.
While the premise sounds serious, the show is filled with stunning animation paired with moments of non-stop laughter. This show is epic because it manages to be utterly chaotic and ridiculous at the same time.
Young Sheldon (2017)
The Big Bang Theory will go down in history as one of the greatest sitcoms of all time. This recognition is due, in no small part, to Sheldon, a central character who thinks he is above everyone else because he is smarter than everyone else.
Was he like this since he was a child? Yes, and Young Sheldon explores this part of his life. Taken back to 1989, we see Sheldon start four grades ahead of his age, and deal with a devout Christian mother and a father who doesn’t try as hard to understand his intellectual son. Yes, the show is a tear-jerker and there are real moments of sweetness that will make you love this boy.
Rick and Morty (2013)
Rick and Morty is a name synonymous with blunt entertainment, and if you've not heard of the show, you may have been living under a rock all these years. The show follows the bizarre adventures of Rick, a deranged scientist who was missing for the last 20 years, and Morty, his grandson. Rick is a mad genius, to say the least, and has now changed his daughter's garage into his own personal laboratory, filled with experiments that aren't quite safe for the family.
The real catch of the show is the journeys across the universe Rick and Morty take almost every day, while also teaching us about the things around us, what we feel about them, and the possibilities of understanding what we know and don't know.
Four More Shots Please! (2019)
Four More Shots Please! is a new concept for Indian television, and we think it has opened the door for bolder, women-centric shows to premiere in the future. Centered around the lives of four female friends Damini, Anjana, Umang, and Siddhi, the episodes explore their relationships, fantasies, fears, and inhibitions during their daily problems.
This show is the perfect weekend binge, without requiring us to think too hard about the comedy. The chemistry between the characters easily commands our attention and finds a way to contrast modern-day relationship problems with decades-old Indian social conditioning.
In a school for boys, it might seem normal to think about having girls study with you. Or this is a common perception. Set in the 1960s, when girls are introduced in an all-boys high school, this commonly accepted perception is challenged, when things aren’t quite that simple.
Because of the tender age, the show makes it a point to highlight the “hormonal fireworks” and the adolescent relationships that cry to be true love but soon turn out to be recognized as the fooleries of youth. It’s rare to find a show that speaks to all audiences, but we think Mixte did a good job at this.
The Big Bang Theory (2007)
If another show would join the ranks of Friends and HIMYM, it would be the Big Bang Theory. Based on the daily lives of Leonard and Sheldon, two brilliant but socially awkward physicists working at the California Institute of Technology, the show finds a guiding star in Leonard's crush for Penny, their gorgeous neighbor who is also an aspiring actress but waits tables to make ends meet.
When these two scientists and their fellow researchers at Caltech Wolowitz and Koothrappali include Penny as part of their dinner group, how will the shenanigans turn out?
As We See It (2022)
One of the latest hits on the block, As We See It has seen great reception from the audience and is soon to become join the list of Amazon's best shows. Jack, Harrison, and Violet, three kids affected by varying degrees of autism, invite us on their journey to navigate the "real world, " which is far removed from their realities. As We See It shows us how serious conversations can be made entertaining yet eye-opening.
The show is well written, the cast perfect for the role and the story, one that grips your heart and makes you want it to never stop.
If one thing stood out about this show, it is the chemistry between the four lead actors. Harlem is a story of four ambitious women Camille, Quinn, Tye, and Angie, as they navigate through their lives, careers and relationships. Harlem is an easy watch- intriguing with a sense of witty humor that you can easily relate to.
With a dash of romance and ambitious dreams, their support for each other is beautiful to watch. Underneath all the comedy, the story manages to convey the undervalued ground of single black women in the Big Apple. We highly recommend you watch this show.
If not the witty sarcasm or the amazing chemistry between the entire cast, you will love House for being about this antisocial, sarcastic, arrogant, addicted-to-Vicodin doctor who saves lives that no one else can. Set in the Diagnostics department of Princeton Plainsboro Hospital, House is rash, rude, manipulative, and does anything he can to solve the puzzling cases that reach his doors.
Hugh Laurie does a masterful job of playing this role, and the supporting cast displays amazing chemistry in every episode, all while the overlaying race saves their patients. The show is hilarious, and we think you cannot find a better series to binge on this weekend.
Borat’s American Lockdown & Debunking Borat (2021)
Borat is a character that has defined light comedy, since its first installation. Borat’s American Lockdown & Debunking Borat is a result of the immense success of the Borat 2 movie. This docuseries is a compilation of leftover footage and new additions, meant to debunk the popular conspiracy theories in the 2020 release. If it seems political to you, it is meant to.
The first portion has Borat locked up with conspiracy theorists Jim Russell and Jerry Holleman, with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. The second half of the docuseries is a funny debunking of the conspiracy theorists’ ideas. While it may seem funny on the surface, the series is a cry for us to understand how conspiracy theories can divide us, even if they are debunked.

Unfortunately, things go (Slightly? Massively?) array amidst re-election drama, potential indictments, and well, 4 grown men sharing a house.

Good Omens (2019)
This comedy show stars actors Michael Sheen as Aziraphale the angel and David Tennant as Crowly, the demon. They partnered up to avoid an approaching apocalypse and according to IMDB, Good Omens is a series worth watching. In it, they live side by side as representatives of Heaven and Hell on Earth. And what could match the excitement of this cast so far?
Potentially only the news that Frances McDormand plays the voice of God and Benedict Cumberbatch plays Satan's! In this top Amazon Prime TV series, Sheen and Tennant pair up yet again to display their undeniable on-screen friendship, as well as, portray their classically opposing characters. Ultimately, the protectors of Heaven and Hell are put to the test.
This Amazon original was created by Greg Daniels, the same man who brought us The Office and Parks and Recreation. But, unlike the two mentioned, this TV series mixed science fiction and comedy-drama to create a futuristic digital afterlife where consciousness is uploaded and stored if one can swing the high price tag.
In the virtual world of this show, people can change seasons at the click of a button and reminisce on any stored memories the same way one would scroll through their Google Drive. A mere seven days after the small-screen release, Upload was renewed for a second season. Time to clear our schedules!
Red Oaks (2014)
Red Oaks came out several years back and is still widely enjoyed by many. The comedy-drama tells the story of an assistant professional tennis player as he works hard to figure out how to plan the next steps in life. In the meantime, David, the athlete played by Craig Roberts, spends his time working at a New Jersey country club.
Through juggling his adolescence, relationships, happiness, and financial state throughout the 1980s, David runs into numerous obstacles. Red Oaks ran for three seasons, and based on its IMDb score, it has been rated one of the best TV shows on Amazon Prime.
One of the highest ratings on our list is Phoebe Waller-Bridge's hilariously relatable masterpiece, Fleabag. She wrote and starred in the play-turned-comedy series as a mid 30's woman who had her moments of high highs and low lows like many of us.
Unfortunately, she had been using her busy job to cope with the tragedies that occurred in her life. Despite that, she must have done something right because the actress went on to win several awards for her roles! This honest and to-the-point comedy series has been widely regarded as one of the best TV series on Amazon Prime.
The Boys (2019)
In a world where superheroes are modern celebs, Amazon's The Boys features Karl Urban (Billy Butcher), Jack Quaid (Hughie Campbell), and Antony Starr (Homelander). When a superbeing starts to behave badly, action must be taken quickly! Before diving into what is based on Garth Ennis's comic series, it's important to note that this show is not for the easily disturbed.
Fans have also described loads of gore and horror in the super comedy. However, many of the actors in this show have been reported to pull out all of the stops to wow viewers from beginning to end.
It's typically not easy to make a TV show revolving around heavy topics that usually come with profound and emotional conversations. However, the Amazon Prime Original series, Transparent, does just that. When two siblings, the Pfefferman's, discover that their dad is transitioning to a woman named Maura, the two have to learn to navigate the changes within and outside their family.
To many, this show is an excellent representation of acceptance, family bonding, strength, and perseverance. And, with actors such as Jeffrey Tambor, Amy Landecker, and Gaby Hoffmann, it's also highly entertaining and heartwarming.
Flight of the Conchords (2007)
Flight of the Conchords follows the story of the two-person band from New Zealand of the same name. The show stars the real-life duo of Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie. Still, they play fictionalized versions of themselves, a folk-rock band seeking fame and success in New York City.

To add to the comedy, their friend employed at a pawn shop continually advises the main characters on dealing with American women and culture. There are also landlords, ex and current girlfriends, and Mel’s husband. The show was undoubtedly a success with positive critical reception and ten Emmy Awards nominations. Flight of the Conchord's first season was shown in June 2007, while the second was in 2009. However, the famous duo announced that there wouldn’t be a third one.
We might have fallen in love with her as Jerry's partner in crime, but Julia Louis-Dreyfus's come a long way since then. Of course, we're talking about the Seinfeld star's latest adventure - which calls for a swanky spot in the White House: sitcom, Veep, follows the hilarious tales of Dreyfus as she juggles her newfound role as Vice President of the United States.
And if the thought of Elaine Marie Benes as co-leader of our nation sounds unfitting? That's because it is. But that's also what makes this satirical comedy as golden as it is. Have a look for yourself below.
Modern Love (2019)
With a cast like that of Modern Love, there's no denying that this 8-episode TV series was set to be one of the best shows on Amazon Prime. Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, Andy Garcia, and several more talented personalities brought us a captivating story based on a New York Times column.

Curb Your Enthusiasm (2000)
In our next must-watch sitcom, Curb Your Enthusiasm, get ready to watch Larry David star as... Larry David. We know, it might not sound as crazy as Amy Poehler working as a bureaucrat or Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a White House official - but you can bet it's just as entertaining.

30 Rock (2006)
Tina Fey laid all her creativity cards on the table when she brought TV lovers the hilarious, joke-filled show, 30 Rock. In it, Fey played Liz Lemon, who constantly tried to wrangle the unmanageable employees of her SNL-style comedy show, "TGS with Tracy Jordan." As Lemon attempted to balance her love life, work life, and success, many viewers could relate to the daily struggles she experienced.
To help her through the troubles of the time, Liz became close with her boss Jack Donaghy, played by Alec Baldwin. Together, their banter was enough to keep fans watching episode after episode.
Sure, we've all caught Friends and Sex and the City. But this group of friends' time in the Big Apple is like nothing you've ever seen.
From Lena Dunham to Allison Williams, allow the cast's hilarious ensemble of 20-something-year-olds to be a friendly reminder that, well, none of us know what we're doing, do we? Expect lots of laughs (and tears) as we watch these girls navigate adulthood (at least try to). A+ for effort, right?
