10 TV Shows Everybody’s Talking About Right Now and Where to Watch Them

Goodbye sunlight, hello screen light.


(SPOT.ph) There’s nothing like having a lot of options to choose from when you finally find enough time to sit down, relax, and watch an episode or two of a TV show. But in the sea of seamless streaming, numerous channels, and seemingly endless options, there are a select few shows that all your friends (and your friends’ friends) are watching. So we round them up—plus where you can watch them (legally!)—just so you don’t feel out of place in the TV world.



Queer Eye

Where to watch: Netflix


Netflix’s reboot of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy has been appealing not just to old fans of the show, but to newcomers as well—and it’s easy to tell why. The Fab Five is exactly what they sound like (and more, tbh!). They’re five gay guys who are essentially tasked with improving different aspects of the lives of guys who are in need of a little bit of help. The fun-loving Jonathan Van Ness is in charge of grooming, the posh Tan France is the fashion expert, impressive Bobby Berk refurbishes their homes, the savvy Karamo Brown helps out culture-wise, and soft-spoken (and devilishly handsome) Antoni Porowski handles the food. While the first version of the show aimed for the tolerance of gay culture, this one aims for acceptance—and soon enough you’ll find yourself saying, “Fiercedom, honey!”





Where to watch: FX Asia, Fox+


Undoubtedly one of the best TV shows on air right now, comedy-drama Atlanta is the brainchild and masterpiece of multi-hyphenate Donald Glover (a.k.a. rapper Childish Gambino). Glover plays Earn, a Princeton University dropout who’s trying to earn money by managing his estranged cousin’s rap career so he can improve the life of his girlfriend and their daughter. Aside from starring in the show, Glover also writes and directs it. The show has earned two Golden Globe Awards and two Primetime Emmys, making Glover the first African-American to win an Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy series.



The Good Place

Where to watch: Netflix, iflix


In this fantasy comedy, Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) wakes up to find that she is in the afterlife. She’s introduced to the heavenly utopia she’s in, which is called “The Good Place,” and is told that she’s been sent there because she lived a virtuous life—but she didn’t. She realizes that she’s been sent there by mistake and tries to do good in order to stay in the Good Place. It’s a good watch if you’re looking for something lighthearted and funny!



The Oath

Where to watch: Hooq


It's the streaming service's first-ever Hollywood original series, but it looks like HOOQ's already off to a good start with this cop drama that isn't your usual. Sure, you've seen cops investigate crime scenes on TV before, but this series also explores the underground gangs and corrupt practices of those who swore to serve and protect. It follows the story of a group of cop criminals and (not-so-surprisingly) it's actually loosely based on first-hand experience of a former undercover officer. It stars True Blood's Ryan Kwanten and Game of Thrones' Sean Bean
