Criminal Minds

Giphy

Based in Memphis, Greenleaf follows a pastor and his family as they sort through a family member's suicide, someone's father coming out as homosexual, a rival church plotting to take their church members, and more.

Black Mirror

Giphy

Black Mirror is unique because every episode features different characters, plot, and subtopic. The general topic of the show is technology and how we interact with it. Life imitates art as the characters find some cool new tech based game or product, yet that same great technology can be used for evil or simply just turn out to not have a positive imapact.

Scandal

Giphy

She has a strong team that helps many politicians get caught and accounted for, as well as her personal navigation of the many political twists and turns concerning her parent's identity, her relationship with the president, and more.

Black Lightning

Giphy

You've heard of Black Panther, but this is Black Lightning. Black lightning is a local superhero that gained his power from a secret government experiment. He uses that power to save kidnapped children, locate rogue cops, and overall help people within the community. He later puts his power aside to start a family. However, the government still has their eye on this community for human experimentation, much like the real-life human experimentation called the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment. Therefore, he has to re-awaken his ability and dusk off his skills to save not only the community, but his family.

The Umbrella Academy

Giphy

On the same exact day, 43 children were born to mothers that were not pregnant on the morning they gave birth. These 43 products of immaculate conception were sought after by one man. He only obtained seven of the children.

These seven went on to form "The Umbrella Academy". They were each given a number of importance by their caretaker depending on what special talent or gift they had, down to the gift-less number seven. Numbers 1- 6 went on to fight crimes like any other superhero group until they one by one grew up and left the Academy.

The death of their caretaker brings them back together one last time and the learn the truth thing their caretaker was preparing them to fight all of those years.

On My Block

Giphy

High school. It can go so many different ways for you and your friends. On My Block follows four friends as they transverse through a neighborhood gang and their rivals, death, relationships, and the fluidity of high school friendships.

Big Mouth

We are all going through changes. Big Mouth just addresses them in humor, albeit, sometimes crude humor. The show follows a group of middle schoolers and their inner dialogue as they face puberty.

Good Girls

Giphy

Three friends that are also mothers are falling upon financial hardship. One's house is in foreclosure, one is a single mother, and one has a child with an illness. With nowhere left to turn, they decide to rob a local grocery store. They get a lot more money than they bargained for and are finally seeings a light at the end of the tunnel. A few days later, however, they learn the truth of why a small grocery store was loaded with hundreds of thousands of dollars in its safe and the three friends soon find themselves neck deep in illegal activities.
