6. Watch with friends: Outlander (Starz)

Outlander has one of the most passionate fan bases of all time, and it’s not just because of the TV show. The successful book series is definitely worth a look, but for anyone remotely interested in history, romance, time travel, or adventure then this is a series to check out. While it might be a little too risque to watch with family, your friends are bound to enjoy it. Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan play the iconic couple, Claire and Jamie, and their chemistry is off the charts. However, the story is more than just a lot of love scenes. Outlander dives into the complexities of the 18th century, including the growing tensions between different countries, how different genders are treated, and their lack of proper health care. It’s interesting to watch, and the sets are absolutely gorgeous.

Season 4 premiered on November 4, 2018. Season 5 and 6 have already been ordered.

5. Watch with family: The Good Place (NBC)

Anyone who likes comedy is probably safe with watching a TV series from Michael Schur. The prolific writer is responsible for creating two of the most beloved sitcoms of this generation: Parks & Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. On top of that, he served as an executive producer for Netflix’s Master of None as well as a writer for The Office and Black Mirror. Basically, you know you’re in good hands checking out The Good Place. The series stars Kristen Bell as Eleanor Shellstrop, a woman accidentally sent to “The Good Place” when she dies. We don’t want to give anything away other than that because the twists and turns are all fantastic and funny surprises.

Season 3 midseason premiere is January 10, 2019.
