50) 24

Counterterrorism agent Jack Bauer fights the bad guys of the world, a day at a time. With each week’s episode unfolding in real time, “24” covers a single day in the life of Bauer each season. Jack deals with assassination attempts, nuclear attacks, bioterrorism, torture, traitors, sleeper cells, other bad guys and the alarming tendency for his romances to end badly — very badly. A fantastic drama series which was groundbreaking at the time and still keeps audiences coming back.

49) Marvel’s What If?

“What If…?” flips the script on the MCU, reimagining famous events from the films in unexpected ways. Marvel Studios’ first animated series focuses on different heroes from the MCU, featuring a voice cast that includes a host of stars who reprise their roles. This is a great animated series from Marvel, with unique stories that Marvel fans will love.

48) Scandal

Everyone has secrets, and Olivia Pope has dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public image of the elite by keeping those secrets under wraps. Pope and her team are at the top of their game when it comes to getting the job done for their clients, but it becomes apparent that these “gladiators in suits,” who specialize in fixing the lives of other people, have trouble fixing those closest at hand — their own. Another fantastic series that’s worth checking out on Disney+.

47) Solar Opposites

A family of aliens from a much better world must take refuge in middle America after the destruction of their planet. Their mission: protect the Pupa, a living super computer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth. Easily one of the funniest new animated shows from recent years and well worth investigating if your after something fresh.

46) Daredevil

Lawyer-by-day Matt Murdock uses his heightened senses from being blinded as a young boy to fight crime at night on the streets of Hell’s Kitchen as Daredevil. It’s one of the best Marvel series from the “Defenders” saga, which are also all available to stream on Disney+, and I’d certainly suggest giving these a chance if you’ve never seen them.

45) Criminal Minds

An elite team of FBI profilers analyze the country’s most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves before they strike again. The Behavioral Analysis Unit’s most experienced agent is David Rossi, a founding member of the BAU who returns to help the team solve new cases.

For the next two years, Miep, her husband Jan, and the other helpers watched over the eight souls in hiding in the Secret Annex. And it was Miep who found Anne’s Diary and kept it safe so Otto, the only one of the eight who survived, could later share it with the world as one of the most powerful accounts of the Holocaust. This hard-hitting drama series is one of the best shows of 2023, and I’d highly recommend you watch it.

43) Extraordinary

This British comedy series is set in a world where everyone develops a power on their 18th birthday, Jen didn’t. She’s turning 25 and is still waiting to get hers. Adrift in a big, confusing world and armed with nothing but a bit of hope and a lot of desperation, Jen begins her journey to find her maybe-superpower. But in doing so, she might discover the joy of being just kind of ok. One of the funniest series I’ve seen in a while, it’s a mix-up between “Derry Girls” and “The Boys”. I ended up binging the entire season in one sitting, and it didn’t take much longer to binge in the second season.

42) The Imagineering Story

This 6 part documentary series explores the past, present and future of Walt Disney Imagineering with noted filmmaker Leslie Iwerks. Ms. Iwerks comes from a family with deep Disney history — her grandfather was an early Disney animator and her father is a former Imagineer — and her previous work includes profiles of Pixar Animation Studios and visual effects house Industrial Light & Magic. For anyone who loves Disney theme parks, this is a must-watch, as I don’t think we will ever get a show this detailed about what goes into making a Disney theme park work.

41) Bob’s Burgers

Bob Belcher is a third-generation restaurateur who runs Bob’s Burgers with his loving wife and their three children. Bob believes his burgers speak for themselves and isn’t afraid to offer a variety of off-beat creations.

The main competition to Bob’s Burgers is a busy pasta joint located across the street that is run by Bob’s nemesis, Jimmy Pesto. Despite the challenges, which include consistent harassment from Linda’s ex – a health inspector – Bob tries to keep the grill sizzling. This is another classic animated series that just keeps running because audiences love it and it is a great comfort TV to just pop on while you are chilling.

40) Secrets Of The Whales

“Secrets of the Whales,” from National Geographic, plunges viewers deep within the epicentre of whale culture to experience the extraordinary communication skills and intricate social structures of five different whale species: orcas, humpbacks, belugas, narwhals and sperm whales. Filmed over three years in 24 locations, throughout this epic journey, we learn that whales are far more complex and more like us than ever imagined.

This is one of the biggest comedy series available on Disney+, it’s legend……wait for it……ary…. If you like this one, check out the spin-off series, “How I Met Your Father”.

If you enjoyed “Rogue One” and prefer your Star Wars being a little more grown up, this is the show for you.

This classic show from the 80s is a fantastic medley of sweet and mischievous, Jim Henson’s Muppets, including Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, produce a weekly variety show with a range of famous guests. Along for the ride are Gonzo, Fozzie the bear and Scooter — who is the closest thing to a human puppet this series has. If you enjoyed this series, there are a few more Muppets series on Disney+, including the Disney+ Original “Muppets Now” and the recent documentary “Jim Henson: Idea Man”.

34) Futurama

If you love “The Simpsons”, you should love this series too! The latest seasons are also exclusive to Disney+ & Hulu.

33) The Dropout

The story of Elizabeth Holmes, the enigmatic Stanford dropout who founded medical testing start-up Theranos. Lauded as a Steve Jobs for the next tech generation and once worth billions of dollars, the myth crumbled when it was revealed that none of the tech actually worked, putting thousands of people’s health in grave danger. An excellent drama series that has a fascinating story.

32) Under The Banner Of Heaven

“Under the Banner of Heaven” is an original limited series inspired by the true crime bestseller by Jon Krakauer, which follows the events that led to the 1984 murder of Brenda Wright Lafferty and her baby daughter in a suburb of the Salt Lake Valley, Utah. As Detective Jeb Pyre investigates events that transpired within the Lafferty family, he uncovers buried truths about the origins of the LDS religion – Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – and the violent consequences of unyielding faith. What Jeb Pyre, a devout Mormon, unearths leads him to question his own faith. This show certainly showcases the issues of faith in the United States, and while it’s not the easiest series to watch, I really enjoyed it and it was one of my favourite originals from 2022.

31) The Old Man

“The Old Man” centres on Dan Chase, who absconded from the CIA decades ago and has been living off the grid since. When an assassin arrives and tries to take Chase out, the old operative learns that to ensure his future, he must reconcile his past. The FBI’s Assistant Director for Counterintelligence is called to hunt Chase down because of his complicated past with the rogue fugitive. “The Old Man” is another recent high-quality drama series from FX that more people should see.

30) The Orville

The crew of a spaceship embarks on an adventurous journey in outer space, four hundred years into the future, where they encounter various dangerous situations. This series might look like a spoof of Star Trek, but it’s actually more enjoyable than most Star Trek series, and it’s easily one of my favourite comedy series from recent years.

29) 9-11

Explore the high-pressure experiences of police officers, paramedics and firefighters who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations. These emergency responders must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in their own lives. It can be a little cheesy at times, but it’s a great show to just chill out on the couch. It has been on our regular watch list since it originally launched. 

28) Star Wars: The Clone Wars

This series fills in the story between “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge Of The Sith”, where Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Mace Windu and other Jedi Knights lead the Grand Army of the Republic against the droid army of the Separatists. The 7th season of the show is a Disney+ exclusive, plus there are over a hundred episodes available, making this one of the most binge-worthy shows on Disney+. And if you enjoy this show, I’d also recommend checking out “Rebels” and “The Bad Batch”.

27) Reservation Dogs

This comedy follows the exploits of four Indigenous teenagers in rural Oklahoma who steal, rob and save in order to get to the exotic, mysterious and faraway land of California. If you’re after a new comedy-drama with a bit of an edge, this might be worth adding to your watchlist.

26) Moving

“Moving” is one of the most popular Korean originals. It tells the story of a group of South Korean special agents working to protect their super-powered children from harm and exploitation at the hands of malicious government agencies. Initially recruited because of their extraordinary abilities to fly, instantly heal and use their enhanced senses in the field, the agents disappeared without a trace after being tasked with carrying out increasingly dubious missions. But with their children now exhibiting similar abilities and a dangerous assassin rapidly picking off super-powered individuals, the parents must leave their peaceful lives behind to become the “monsters” they once were. If you’re after a new Korean drama series to binge, or just fancy watching a superhero series with a difference, “Moving” could be it.

25) X-Men: The Animated Series

Easily my personal favourite Marvel animated show, this series from the 1990s features lots of different X-Men characters and will introduce you to the world of mutants better than any of the live-action movies. The series showcases how the X-Men fight for mutant rights against hostile Government agencies whilst at the same time protecting mankind from mutant supremacist Magneto, who seeks to destroy the human race in return for the atrocities committed against mutant-kind. For Marvel fans, this is a must-watch, and I’d also suggest following this up with “X-Men ’97”, which is a fantastic revival of this classic animated series.

24) The Kardashians

Just when you think life can’t get any faster in the Kardashian-Jenner family, they punch it into overdrive. From the big screen to baby bliss, the family continues to defy expectations in all their endeavours. Cameras roll as Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie navigate contentious sister dynamics, all under the watchful eye of everyone’s favourite matriarch, Kris. This show is very much like Marmite; you’ll either hate it or love it. But it is one of the most popular shows on Disney+ and Hulu for a reason! They are completely removed from reality, but whenever a new episode comes out, I sit with my wife and soak in the insanity of their lives!

23) The Beatles: Get Back

The Beatles: Get Back” takes audiences back in time to the band’s January 1969 recording sessions, which became a pivotal moment in music history. The docuseries showcases The Beatles’ creative process as they attempt to write 14 new songs in preparation for their first live concert in over two years. Faced with a nearly impossible deadline, the strong bonds of friendship shared by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr are put to the test.

22) Dopesick

“Dopesick” examines how one company triggered the worst drug epidemic in American history. The series takes viewers to the epicenter of America’s struggle with opioid addiction, from the boardrooms of Big Pharma, to a distressed Virginia mining community, to the hallways of the DEA. Defying all the odds, heroes will emerge in an intense and thrilling ride to take down the craven corporate forces behind this national crisis and their allies. The limited series is inspired by the New York Times bestselling book by Beth Macy and is a hard-hitting series that I was completely engrossed in. This is one of my favourite drama series from recent years and highlighted a major problem in the US that I certainly wasn’t aware of.

21) Moon Knight
