John Boel - WAVE 3 News Anchor

Ozark (TV-MA)

Stream on Netflix

“Not as great as many swear by, but something keeps us coming back. Maybe the fact that they should have been dead about 21 times already.”

Bosch (TV-MA)

Stream on Amazon Prime Video

“We were on this long ago when no one mentioned it. Way underrated. The second they added Season 6, we were back into it.”

Shannon Cogan - WAVE 3 News Anchor

Ozark (TV-MA)

Stream on Netflix

“Wow. This show has so many twists and turns and surprises. And the characters are so interesting. Terrific acting too. It’s pretty dark but totally takes your mind off the current situation.”

The Morning Show (TV-MA)

Stream on Apple TV+

“I am late to the game on this one as just got Apple TV. But two great actresses in this – Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. It’s a look into the behind the scenes of a network morning show as they deal with a crisis (think Matt Lauer).  If nothing else, the scenes in Jennifer Aniston’s New York City home and closet are pretty magnificent.”

The Great British Baking Show (TV-14)

Stream on Netflix

“I like it because I can watch people making complicated dishes I cannot make and that I shouldn’t be eating anyway!”

Criminal Minds (TV-14)

Stream on Netflix

“It is a type of escape.  It’s so fascinating and at times horrifying that it puts our current situation in perspective.”

Dawne Gee - WAVE 3 News Anchor

“I’ve not been binge watching but for the first time in my life I have time on the weekends to garden as much as I want and play with my dogs.  It’s unbelievable to be home.  I do sleep with the TV on though and I have to have a horror movie to fall asleep to.”

Better Call Saul (TV-MA)

Stream on Netflix

Fargo (TV-MA)

Stream on Hulu

“I just blew through all of Better Call Saul and then all of Fargo, two quirky crime shows with dark humor and suspense. If you like Breaking Bad, you will like Better Call Saul — eventually, if not at first. And if you like the Fargo movie, you will like the series. It seems like it shouldn’t live up to the movie, but it does.”

Something Shorter:

Red Oaks (TV-MA) Stream on Amazon Prime Video

“Less than 30 minutes per episode. A coming of age story from the 80’s.”

Ozark (TV-MA) Stream on Netflix

Bosch (TV-MA) Stream on Amazon Prime Video

“The series that I watch as soon as the new season comes out. Both create suspense and carry multiple story lines.”
