@nitinkhanna We liked Catastrophe on Prime. The characters are not likeable per se but they don't pretend to want to be liked. I loved Kim's Convenience too. Tried Sex Education and Never Have I Ever on Netflix? We too are nowadays preferring shows that live in their own little quirky world untethered to the reality that's increasingly difficult to cope with aka escapist fare.

@pratik Never Have I Ever was a lot of fun! I loved that the ABCD voice was so well represented through the eyes of, of course, a teen ๐Ÿ˜„ I watched Season 2 of Homecoming on Amazon for the past two days. A very, very good season! I was expecting this to be a "setup" season, but they definitely dropped a great bombshell towards the end! Loved it!

Catastrophe was fun, but I think I can have only so much of that kind of comedy for a while! ๐Ÿ˜„

Sex Education is very Never Have I Ever-ish?

@nitinkhanna Agree about Catastrophe so was glad about its length. Sex Education is similar to Never Have I Ever in a way but obviously set in different location. Season 2 was just as good as Season 1 so that was encouraging. I think youโ€™ll enjoy it. Weโ€™re also watching The Expanse now.

@pratik I think my wife is allergic to SciFi ๐Ÿ˜„

@nitinkhanna My wife is similarly affected, poor thing! but we are watching Sense8 and love it.

@nitinkhanna Ha! I can understand. Basically, weโ€™re also craving for what we used to call the USA Network type shows - seem serious but are really not. The Psych, Royal Pains, White Collar, Monk, etc. types, you know.

@amongthestones you know... things Netflix throws at us, we still gobble up. Sense8 was fun! I think it's because it hid the "it's SciFi" very well, behind a human story. Basically, whenever the action or SciFi gets too real or too long, Sense8 shifts to party mode! ๐Ÿ˜„

I think her aversion to mass produced SciFi like Star Wars and Trek is the same as mine to pulp fiction - I've never been able to read any story of Robert Ludlum or Jeffery Archer, or the likes.

@pratik I loved Psych and White Collar. Couldn't get into Monk. His act was too similar to grumpy old Larry David and his crass Curb Your Enthusiasm. As brilliant Sienfeld was, CYE and Monk feel too much (though I think I've seen a good two seasons of it before giving up).

I also love watching Lucifer (and the missus hates it)!

@nitinkhanna I can see that about Monk although we are now rewatching the series with our son right now and oh boy, he gets so mad (in a good way) at Monk watching it. I never saw Curb Your Enthusiasm.

@pratik Curb your Enthusiasm is funny in a cringeworthy kind of way. Nothing to see with kids though.
