I grew up in front of TV. I would wake up early, go to sleep late, develop phobias and learn through this magical box in the living room. I am glad to have grown up where families would sit together and watch TV together, that it was something which helped showed varied images from News, Drama, Comedies and more. Nowadays I use my humble Macbook as my gateway to the land of television, but nevertheless, I still make the effort to watch television shows which I find are compelling, diverse, LGBTQIA and some to just make me laugh. Here are some shows I've been watching.

  • DISCLOSURE is a film about trans representation in the media, it is a thoughtful deep-dive into representation, its development and the repercussions.
  • I don't laugh out loud too much, but 8 OUT OF 10 CATS is a fun and challenging comedy game show which never ceases to get a smile. 
  • I can proudly say that I have watched every season of GREY's ANATOMY. 
  • The spin-off from Black'ish, GROWN'ISH is a modern take on college life and how life works. 
  • Think Project Runway but for Make-Up Artists, GLOW UP is a British reality competition to find the next best make up artist. 
  • I MAY DESTROY YOU is compelling and provoking written and co-directed by Chewing Gum's Michaela Coel. 
  • Issa Rae's INSECURE takes you on a journey of life and friendships in LA with more laughs than crazy drama. 
  • Who doesn't like a female assassin and Sandra Oh? KILLING EVE
  • One of the best competition shows, LEGENDARY showcases the Ball scene as they battle for $100,000. 
  • Based on the novel LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE is a miniseries exploring race, social equality and trying to find who you are. 
  • A sequel/spin-off of sorts LOVE, VICTOR takes the movie Love, Simon and turns it into 10 episodes of good tv. 
  • Want to learn about the ERA and the Women's Liberation Movement? Not to mention watch powerhouse performances by Cate Blanchett and Sarah Paulson? MRS. AMERICA. 
  • NORMAL PEOPLE is a new look at a relationship over time, it reminds me of the movie One Day, without the sad ending. 
  • The over the top indulgent show THE POLITICIAN is just that, not to mention Gwyneth Paltrow, Bette Midler and Judith Light.
  • RUPAUL's DRAG RACE ALL STARS 5, need I say more? 
  • VISIBLE: OUT ON TELEVISION is a miniseries based off key elements of LGBTQIA representation, history and future. 
  • A Must. I never read the comic nor watched the movie, but WATCHMEN series was a favourite. 
  • It's heavy and at times confusing but WESTWORLD is my inner sci-fi nerd's obsession.
