Amazon's take on the Netflix Original Series, this ten-episode season revolves around a Los Angeles family as they struggle to come to terms with the fact that the father, Mort (Jeffrey Tambor), is transgender. Each episode is only 30 minutes, so we won’t hold it against you for plowing through in a weekend.

Broad City


Like Girls, with a helluva lot more grit. Created by real-life friends Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson (who also star in the series) and produced by Amy Poehler, you can except some pee-your-pants scenes about life as twenty-something in NYC.

Okay, so you have to pay for this one. But it was too good to leave out. Produced by the Coen brothers and loosely based on the movie, this series is everything you would expect: dark, sweetly philosophical and really, really friggin' cold.

Key and Peele


The sketch comedy show (which airs Wednesdays on Comedy Central) is now available for the binge-worthy sect. (Huzzah!) Follow Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as they riff on everything from being Obama's translator to teaching at an all-white high school.
