Orange Is The New Black

NME

Based on Piper Kerman’s best-selling memoir, this Netflix original series follows the ups and downs of a motley crew of inmates living at Litchfield Penitentiary, a fictional women’s prison in upstate New York.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

NME

What happens when a woman who’s been living in a doomsday cult for 15 years is finally freed – and decides to build a new life in the Big Apple? This hilarious Netflix original series co-created by Tina Fey follows Ellie Kemper’s Kimmy Schmidt as she re-integrates into a world where technology has moved on a lot and “dancing is all about butts now”.

Portlandia

NME

Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein and Saturday Night Live alumnus Fred Armisen team up for this brilliantly offbeat sketch show, which sends up the self-consciously alternative lifestyles favoured by certain residents of Portland, Oregon. The first three seasons, including the classic “Put a bird on it!” sketch, are all available on Netflix now.

House Of Cards

NME

Kevin Spacey is menacingly brilliant as devious Washington, D.C. politician Frank Underwood in this Emmy-nominated Netflix original series. And as Frank’s equally scheming wife, Claire, Robin Wright provides terrifyingly unflappable support. Pray there’s no one like these two campaigning for votes on your campus…

Community

NME

However crazy your uni classes become, they’ll never match the pop culture-referencing banter and outlandish storylines of Community, the hit US sitcom set at a fictional community college in Greendale, Arizona. The first five seasons of this consistently clever series are streaming on Netflix for your binge-watching pleasure.

BoJack Horseman

NME

Back in the ’90s, BoJack Horseman (voiced by Will Arnett) was a very famous TV star. But now he’s a rude, boozy, overweight layabout trying to resurrect his career with a tell-all memoir that, erm, he hasn’t quite started writing yet. Witty, visually inventive and often scarily relatable, this Netflix original series is today’s most addictive animated sitcom.
