‘Tuca and Bertie’

Seasons: 1

Episodes: 10

This new Netflix original animated series is fun, and absurd. Starring comedians Tiffany Haddish as Tuca, “a cocky, care-free toucan,” and Ali Wong as Bertie, “an anxious, daydreaming songbird,” the show is all about friendship and weirdness. With great animation styling, brilliant side gags, and short 30-minute episodes, “Tuca and Bertie” is the most light-hearted binge you could pick this week.

‘Pose’

Seasons: 1

Episodes: 8

This FX drama premiered last year to critical acclaim, and now the first season is streaming on Netflix US starting on May 10. Inspired by the documentary feature “Paris is Burning” (which is also currently on Netflix), “Pose” tells the story of 1980s ball culture with a piercing look at the discrimination faced by the LGBTQ and drag community.

The phenomenal ensemble cast, detailed set design and and gorgeous costuming make “Pose” well worth your time this weekend.

Seasons: 1

Episodes: 10

As its name implies, “The Haunting of Hill House” is a scary drama series which is not for the faint of heart. But if you’re OK with the occasional jump scare and spooky sights, this show provides a deep, introspective look into family trauma and grief. Any fan of horror and just plain-good storytelling needs to watch this Netflix original series.
