Taskmaster – The most recent series wasn’t the show’s best, but it was still fun viewing.

Frayed – Sarah Kendall’s debut sitcom where she played a woman who lost it all and had to move back in with her mother in Australia was all a bit fantastic.

Daybreak – This new Netflix comedy horror series sees the world end and a bunch of high school kids trying to survive it, and is a lot better than we thought it might be.

Bojack Horseman – The first part of it’s final season is now on Netflix, with the second half due to drop in January, and as always it’s hilarious but also heartbreaking viewing.
