THE EVERETT COLLECTION

Better Call Saul

AMC’s Breaking Bad prequel goes from intriguing origin story to nail-biting thrill ride as crafty lawyer Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) morphs into Bad’s law-bending legal eagle Saul Goodman. Rhea Seehorn (Franklin & Bash) stands out as Jimmy’s do-good girlfriend Kim, who struggles against getting swept up in Jimmy’s growing wave of deceit. Seasons 1–4 available

Bridgerton

For a breezy eight-hour binge, you can’t beat the 19th-century-set series about the romance between British aristocrat Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and the haughty Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). Add in myriad love affairs and a mysterious gossip columnist (voiced by Julie Andrews), and this show is hotter than an August afternoon. Season 1 available

NETFLIX

Kim's Convenience

Fill the Schitt’s Creek–size hole in your heart with another endearing Canadian comedy that tickles the funny bone. Stubborn Toronto convenience store owner Appa Kim (Paul Sun-Hyung Lee) pinches pennies (“Taxi driver wants a tip. Pizza delivery wants a tip. What’s next? Astronaut wants a tip?” he snipes) and struggles to understand his Westernized kids (Andrea Bang and Simu Liu). Seasons 1–5 available

L.A.'s Finest

Your favorite police procedurals may be on summer break, but LAPD partners Nancy McKenna and Syd Burnett (Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union) are still on the case! A spinoff of the Bad Boys movies, this arresting drama from Spectrum Originals, which also aired on Fox, has a cinematic quality to the action and the kind of pitch-perfect banter we love from buddy cops. Season 1 available; Season 2 available Wednesday, June 9

The Witcher

Henry Cavill stars as a white-haired beast hunter whose magic abilities make him essential in the battle to save an imperiled kingdom. Based on the fantasy novels that inspired a series of video games, this lavish, cheeky adaptation isn’t playing: The alliances, timelines, terrors, and twists in Season 1’s eight episodes are more fun to figure out when consumed in a single bite. Season 1 available
