Angie Tribeca

Freeze!…and check out this goofy parody of cop shows that’s drawn comparisons to the Naked Gun movies. The 2016–18 comedy skewers every trope in the genre, including the will-they-won’t-they sexual tension between partners Angie (Rashida Jones) and Jay Geils (Hayes MacArthur), who work in the LAPD’s Really Heinous Crimes Unit. Seasons 1–4 available

Party Down

Care for some quirky humor with your canapé? A group of jaded cater waiters populate Starz’s 2009–10 comedy starring Adam Scott as droll Henry and scene-stealer Jane Lynch as former actress Constance, who rehashes her glory days, like the time she played a hooker on Baretta and had one line to deliver: “Lookin’s free. Touchin’ will cost ya.” Seasons 1–2 available

The Mick

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Kaitlin Olson showed her leading-lady chops on this demented tale of an abrasive opportunist stuck raising her wealthy sister’s kids. The 2017–18 series’ antihero is like a day-drinking version of The Nanny with no moral compass. Seasons 1–2 available

What We Do in the Shadows

For those of you just learning of FX’s riotous vampires-in–Staten Island favorite, now’s the time to binge the first two years. If Season 1’s silly, star-studded “The Trial” episode doesn’t convert you, it’s possible you may be undead as well. Seasons 1–2 available; Season 3 episodes stream Fridays after airing on FX

Josh Thomas, the creator, and star of this semi-autobiographical 2013–16 Australian series, turns tragedy into comedy, finding humor in tough subjects (like his mother’s suicide attempt) with the help of his weird loved ones. Seasons 1–4 available
