Our screen times may have drastically increased in the last couple of weeks, and there’s absolutely no shame in that. We’ve admittedly binge-watched 2 full shows and too many movies to count by now. Naturally, we can’t wait to start our next show—want to give us a hand? Share your top three underrated TV shows and tell us a bit about each one and why you recommend it as a must (NO SPOILERS!)
We want overlooked shows here, so avoid highlighting the go-to binge recommendations. (Of course we’ve all seen Tiger King! We know Ozark is amazing! We finished Love Is Blind weeks ago!) Instead, think outside the box and give us some of those great but easily-overlooked gems that more people should give a chance—maybe they’re older shows people have forgotten about, or maybe they just don’t get enough credit. Enter the ICYMI Challenge and share your top three unexpected binge-watch recs.
