Thursday 23rd May: The Lonely Island Presents – The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience

Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Andy Samberg and his musical collaborators Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer are back with a brilliant “visual poem”, which is both a parody of the self-serious feature length music videos like Beyoncé’s Lemonade, and notoriously ‘roided-up baseball players Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire. The music is surprisingly good, and it’s equal parts silly and fun. Watch out for guest appearances from Sterling K Brown, Sia, Maya Rudolph, HAIM, Jenny Slate and more. Watch on Netflix

Tuesday 7th May: Dead To Me

This dark comedy, revolving around two middle-aged women who meet at a grief-counselling seminar, features a big twist in the first episode, which makes it pretty difficult to go into depth about the story.

Watch on Netflix


Friday 3rd May: Tuca & Bertie

Odd couple-style animated comedy from BoJack Horseman animator Lisa Hanawalt, centred around a toucan (Tiffany Haddish) and a songbird (Ali Wong). Watch on Netflix


Thursday 2nd May: I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson

A hilarious and sometimes unsettling sketch comedy show from former Saturday Night Live writer Tim Robinson. The series features top notch guest appearances from SNL alumni like Vanessa Bayer (in the social media behaviour-skewering piece above) and Will Forte, and is produced and directed by The Lonely Island member Akiva Schaffer. If you like your comedy to waver into the absurd from time to time, this six-episode series will have something for you. Watch on Netflix
