    "I like this show because it is fresh and sometimes unpredictable; being a drama, you don't have to contend with the same old tired sitcom tropes. Also, you don't often see TV shows about 'the trouble with triplets' -- even though one of them is not like the others, being black (he's adopted when one of the three triplets is still-born). This, however, opens up unusual territory for television, and Sterling K. Brown, as the adopted Randall, is an excellent actor, winning an Emmy for his role."

    "I love a good show about a family. I find them interesting and very often times invigorating. One Day at a Time showcased all of that. This was a perfect TV Drama about a single mother raising 2 kids."

    "If you are looking for a fantastic historical drama about what it means to be a British royal, look no further than The Crown. Whilst being a royal looks glamorous on the outside, it is quite a different story behind the glitz. Like any family, the British royals have weathered trials and tribulations, which is exactly what is at the heart of The Crown. This Netflix Original has everything you want in a show. "

    "If you are into watching tv shows about murder with some twisted comedy, then this show is definitely for you! Having some intense run-through's with murders and intense fight scenes is good, but having a bit of comedy whilst having a mini heart attack is even better!"

    "The Simpsons is one of the greatest cornerstones of American culture. It is difficult to overstate its effect on humor and television through the multiple decades it has been on the air. Its jokes, especially in the earlier seasons, are still just as funny today and its satirical style with a large cast of characters has doubtlessly inspired many other TV shows."

    "I don't know if I can completely agree that this is one of the best TV shows about families, but Friday Night Lights has heart and enough feel good moments to go along with the bad. You really root for the coach and players in this show. The best "coach inspiring team" show for sure!"
