“On My Block”

“I’m James. I’m 17. And I’m pretty sure I’m a psychopath.”

This is how the oddball dark comedy “The End of the F***ing World” begins; A bleak pronouncement (and series of disturbing anecdotes one would associate with serial killers).

But the show takes a surprising set of turns, and by the end of its short eight-episode run, you’ll find yourself rooting for both protagonists, James and Alyssa, as they search for purpose in this weird world.

“Jane the Virgin”

Jane the virginThe CWGina Rodriguez is the star of ‘Jane the Virgin.’

Seasons: 4

Episodes: 81

No other show captures the magic of romantic comedies, satire, and telenovelas like “Jane the Virgin.” The series begins with Jane (a virgin, in case you hadn’t put that together yet) getting accidentally artificially inseminated – and things only get more twisty and dramatic from there.

With unimaginable plot turns and captivating performances, “Jane the Virgin” is precisely the kind of show made for binge-watching when you want your heart to feel a little warmer.
