Top Six Must-See TV Shows
Scudera is known for his work on the stage, but he also has a keen eye for the small screen. He takes care of six disabled dogs (@2legdogs), three nosy cats, and his husband, Brian. The committee of 11 has selected six of their favorite shows you can stream today.
- Mare of Easttown
I read a lot of mystery and thriller novels, and this series plays like a good book. The terrific ensemble is led by the brilliant Kate Winslet.
- Midnight Mass
I had heard nothing about this series when I started watching. It ended up being a wild roller-coaster of twists and turns with a unique blend of horror and ponderous (and lengthy) monologues.
- Only Murders in the Building
This series is delightful light fare. And it is funny!
Pose is an important show for several reasons: (1) it provides important insight into the beginnings of the AIDS crisis, and (2) it is the first show to showcase a fantastic ensemble of trans women.
- Everybody Loves Jamie
This is a musical film, derived from the stage play, telling the joyous true-life story of an unabashedly queer high school student who dreams of being a drag queen.
Jean Smart is one of the best actors working in TV today and this series gives her the spotlight she deserves. It is a funny and smart (no pun intended) examination of the entertainment industry.
Scientist sisters Andrea ’23 and Diana Cando ’24 are first-generation students with a lot in common, and even more in distinction.
