Looking for off the beaten path quarantine tv recommendations

I’ll offer a few, hoping to get some good suggestions.

1.) Afterlife (Netflix) is best thing Ricky Gervais has done in years. It has his typical pace, so slow, awkward. But it has a huge heart, and very human. And some great views of Hemel Hempstead, London’s best town. It’s a show about grieving that somehow ends up uplifting.

2.) The Plot Against America (HBO). Wow. This is intense, and perhaps a bit too real. David Simon is the best tv writer of a generation. John Turturro is an amazing actor. Like everything from Simon not an easy, light watch. But very well done.

3.) The Leftovers (HBO). Uneven, up and down during its run. But the last season is really really really great tv. Just like The Wire is what Homicide should have been, this is what Lost should have been. If you even sorta liked Lost you’ll want to watch this until the end. And both Justin Theroux and Carrie Coon are really good.

(None of these are for the family)

So what should I watch next?
