Show: “Dead to Me”
Age Range: 16+
The gist: Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini star in this tale of two damaged women who meet at a grief support group and become fast friends. But it’s a relationship built on deceit. As each layer of truth is unveiled, another lie is discovered. It’s a twisted story held together by expert performances from Applegate and Cardellini. Set aside some time. You’ll want to keep watching.
Show: “Love, Death and Robots”
Age Range: Adult
Gist: This animated anthology covers the gamut, from a robot tour of post-apocalyptic America to werewolves in Afghanistan to alternate histories with Adolf Hitler. But one of the more appealing aspects to the series is that each of the episodes is 10 minutes long, or less. And, if you don’t like one of them, skip it and you’ll be presented with something completely different.
