Bonus: Watch with both!

Need a show that both friends and family can watch? We’ve got you covered there too! Check out these three perfect options below.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (NBC)

The former FOX sitcom makes its NBC debut in 2019, which makes it the perfect show to catch up on before the premiere. Brooklyn Nine-Nine comes from Michael Schur, who’s impressive achievements are mentioned in the section for The Good Place. While season one is a bit of a mixed bag, the shows really improves throughout the second season. With one of the most talented casts in the business, viewers will be able to relate to at least one squad member. Also, the comedy is definitely PG enough for families with kids but will still amuse any adults.

Season 6 premieres on January 10, 2019.

THE GIFTED: L-R: Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Blair Redford, Jamie Chung, Natalie Alyn Lind and Sean Teale in the “eMergence” Season Two premiere episode of THE GIFTED airing Tuesday, Sept. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. ©2018 Fox Broadcasting Co. Cr: Eliza Morse/FOX.

The Gifted (FOX)

FOX’s X-Men series is one of the most underrated shows on network television. The Gifted has been telling complex stories since the first season and has only continued to do so throughout the second. With genre veterans like Amy Acker (Person of Interest and Angel) and Stephen Moyer (True Blood) leading the charge, you know you’re in the right hands. However, the real accomplishment for The Gifted is shining a light on discrimination in any form.

Season 2 midseason premiere airs on January 1, 2019.

Haunting of Hill House (Netflix)

Is a horror TV show one of the best options to watch over the holidays? In regards to Netflix’s Haunting of Hill House, absolutely. The new series was one of the breakouts this fall, telling a compelling story about a damaged family. It’s not bloody or gory at all, instead, it focuses on the psychological ramifications of potentially growing up in a haunted house. For young kids who are easily scared, it might not be the best option although once we learn the secrets behind Hill House the show becomes less scary and more thought-provoking. However, it does deal with mature themes like addiction and mental illness, so it’s probably safest to discuss those topics with children beforehand.
