Underrated TV Shows You Should Binge Right Now

Photographed by Rockie Nolan.
In a world where so much good television exists, it's a little disappointing that we tend to watch, well, a lot of the same stuff. Anyone with a Netflix subscription will wax poetic about the merits of Stranger Things, or the sickly addictive quality of Law & Order: SVU, but these series are hardly the only ones worth spending hours of your life on. In an effort to watch the show du jour, are we ignoring the hidden gems that don't make the cover of Entertainment Weekly? It's quite possible — and it doesn't have to be that way! There are so many series out there that don't get the level of love that they deserve. From quirky comedies to bizarre horror anthologies, there's a lot to explore, both via streaming platform and traditional TV. If you're looking for a show to watch during a rainy day, don't settle for whatever's hot on Hulu. Instead, check out some of these underrated series that will keep you hooked. Who knows? Maybe you'll become a TV tastemaker.
