I love TV.
I also don’t have enough time for TV.
Well, all the shows I want to watch anyway and in this age of Peak TV, that is more shows than I can possible keep track of (and pixels know, I’ve tried!) and watch in a lifetime.
Still, the impossibility of the task at hand, which grows more terrifyingly challenging with each new streaming platform (watching TV is now less a leisure activity than one with some very weird social media-driven KPIs), doesn’t stop me dreaming of watching it ALL.
So fall into your comfy couch, fire up those data-gathering algorithms and dive into some shows which are funny, smart, thoughtful and, just as importantly these days, worth your precious, streaming watching time.

Meanwhile, Otis struggles to move forward with girlfriend Ola and also has to navigate his now strained relationship with Maeve, who grows closer to Aimee. Elsewhere, Otis’ sex therapist mum Jean and Jakob’s relationship is finally discovered and they have to learn how to operate as a blended family. But will Otis be on board?
