Catastrophe is a British sitcom written and created by Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney, who star as the show’s leading couple, Rob and Sharon. They meet while Rob is visiting London on business, where their frequent vacation sex leads to pregnancy, which leads to them figuring out their lives together. The show brilliantly and comically deals with the complicated matters of marriage, parenthood, addiction, grief and much more, painting a complex picture of this crude and deeply endearing couple. Seasons 1 through 3 are now streaming on Amazon.

Good Girls Revolt
Said to be inspired by real life events, Good Girls Revolt tells the story of female researchers who band together to file an EOE complaint after being denied bylines at a weekly magazine circa 1969. The show’s strength is in the character development, particularly Patti, Cindy, Jane and editor Finn—they don’t just change, they evolve authentically with every episode. This, plus the throwback music, groovy fashion statements, and name checking (Nora Ephron, as played by Meryl Streep’s daughter Grace Gummer, is a recurring character) make for a highly entertaining—maybe even mildly captivating—show.
