Pose

Have you complained that TV doesn't have as much glamour and fabulously compared to the movies? Well, when you watch "Pose," you'll no longer feel this way! Originally aired on FX, the series has since been uploaded on Netflix and has become one of the most talked-about drama shows in recent years. It tells the story of the African-American and Latino LGBTQ+ community in New York City during the aids epidemic in the 1980s. At the time, ball culture was at its peak among them. It was a glamorous escape from the real-world troubles they faced in their day-to-day lives.

When They See Us

As diverse and open New York is now, it's not without its spells of racism. And before, as recently as the 1990s, the city wasn't exactly the model area on how to treat people of colour fairly. "When They See Us" is a riveting Ava Duvernay-directed mini-series that chronicles what the "Central Park 5" (now known as the "Exonerated 5") went through. Back in 1989, a white female jogger was assaulted and raped in Central Park and five young African-American and Latino boys were charged for the crime. Their trials became media sensations, propping up conversations from racial discrimination to violence against both women and minorities.

You

If "When They See Us" wasn't proof enough that the New York judicial system is biased against people of colour, "You" certainly adds to that notion. Though the series is less of a legal drama and more of a thriller. Penn Badgley stars as  Joe Goldberg, a seemingly calm bookstore manager who falls in love with Beck, an aspiring writer. Eventually, the two fall in love and start a relationship together. But little does Beck know that Joe doesn't like sharing his lovers. And that he's literally willing to kill anyone who gets in the way of his relationship with Beck.

Jessica Jones

From a male serial killer to a badass female antihero, Netflix sure has a diverse selection of New York-set series. Marvel's "Jessica Jones" is currently one of the hottest programs affiliated with the comic book companies that don't have anything to do with their very successful Cinematic Universe. The series holds its own just fine, portraying a different sort of heroism that's more relatable and modern. The titular character, portrayed by Krysten Ritter, is a troubled superhero who opens her own detective agency to continue fighting crime. However, she does it her own way, which isn't exactly similar to your more mainstream heroes.

Russian Doll

Now for a bit of comedy. Actress and writer Natasha Lyonne, together with the equally talented Amy Poehler, offers up a unique TV/streaming experience with "Russian Doll." In it that the main premise relatively remains the same throughout each episode, but with a few additional pops here and there. In the series. Lyonne stars as a woman who tries to be the guest of honour at a swanky New York party. Sounds normal? Not when you see that each episode is actually a loop of the same series of events, with her dying at the end of every night and then suddenly waking up completely unharmed the nest day. If this has intrigued you, stream the series now!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

A little slapstick comedy doesn't hurt. And out of all the series out now, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is arguably the best at it. Showing what happens in a New York precinct, the show has garnered a lot of fans with its extremely hilarious storylines and unapologetically slapstick schtick. Not to mention the fact that each character has his/her own distinct personality traits, such as Captain Holt's extreme stoicism to Amy's often misplaced enthusiasm. And the clashes between them make for comedy gold. While many would perceive such a comedy as corny and passe, its millions of viewers and devoted fans beg to disagree!

Friends

If you don't know Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Joey, and Phoebe are, where have you been the last 25+ years? "Friends" is arguably the most successful and most influential sitcom since it first premiered in 1994. The show chronicles the lives of six middle-class New Yorkers as they try to live out their lives through friendships, relationships, careers, and more. In a way, it presented an ideal lifestyle of what living in Manhattan in your late twenties and early thirties was like at the time. And while it was mostly fiction, they did often touched on real-life situations and problems, just with a lot of hilarity, of course!
