Do you like James Franco? If you do then The Deuce is unmissable. Not only does James Franco star in it, but he stars in it again. Created by the David Simon (who also made The Wire), The Deuce follows the lives of the Martino twins – both of whom are played by Franco. Maggie Gyllenhaal also features in the show as an entrepreneurial and ambitious prostitute.

The Good Doctor
Nothing beats a good medical drama. The Good Doctor is everything you might hope for from this genre of TV show and more. The premise revolves around an autistic savant doctor by the name of Shaun Murphy. His incredibly abilities include a photographic memory and an exceptional eye for detail. While the doctor’s character seems a bit implausible, the acting is done well and the show is moving and thought-provoking.
The long-awaited season 3 of Narcos, one of Netflix’s finest creations, is finally here. After the death of Pablo Escobar at the end of Season 2, the show has now moved away from the Medellín cartel and focuses on the Calí cartel. Season 3 also follows the remaining members of the Escobar family as they try and get their lives back together. You can expect all the fast-paced action that came with the first two series and some more excellent character development.
Ten Days in the Valley

It’s a rollercoaster journey done to perfection by Sedgwick.
