Sherman’s Showcase – A spoof of 1970’s variety shows, this brand new IFC series from Bashir Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle was an awful lot of fun.

This Way Up – Aisling Bea and Sharon Horgan’s comedy drama was smart and touching stuff, and definitely worth checking out.

A Black Lady Sketch Show – This brand new sketch show starring Robin Thede, Ashley Nicole Black, Gabrielle Dennis and Quinta Brunson was a fantastic watch, and pleasingly a second season has been commissioned.

GLOW – It’s third season is now on Netflix and judging by the first episode it should be a great one.

Divorce – It’s final series was reportedly it’s best.

Archer – It wasn’t the series at it’s best by any means but this space set season had a few decent episodes.
