James Gunn gave DC a second crack at The Suicide Squad, making it a raunchy, gory, hardcore R affair. That energy carried over to the TV spin-off Peacemaker. With John Cena as the Peacemaker, the show delved into his psychology a bit and made him likable. There was plenty of gore and vulgar jokes, of course.
Improving comedies on TV often don't do well, but Netflix's Murderville did. The partially scripted show stars Will Arnett. The premise is that celebrities like Conan O'Brien will be brought into the homicide squad as new partners for Arnett's character.
Apple TV+ is still working on furthering the original programming. The comedy world has Ted Russo, and the dramatic side has Severance. This dystopian sci-fi show, starring Adam Scott, has been nominated for multiple Emmys.

Taika Waititi may mislead some people, but the success of What We Do in the Shadows and Thor: Ragnarok shows what he can do when he fires on all cylinders. Our Flag Means Death is a step back from the best Waititi projects, but it stars Rhys Darby in this comedy about an aristocrat who decides to become a gentleman pirate.

Was this show about Jerry Buss buying the Los Angeles Lakers and portraying Magic Johnson completely accurate? No, but who cares? It's a dramatization, and if you accept it on that level, especially the first few Adam McKay left the show to showrunners capable of handling history.

There have been attempts in the past to make Craig Robinson a starker, but so far, they have been unsuccessful. The Peacock original, Killing It, is the best showcase ever. And don't forget the lovely Australian actress and co-star Claudia O'Doherty.

Did you enjoy the Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, and Spy movies starring Gary Oldman? Then Slow Horses is for you. That's right, Oldman is a British spy. It's a real showcase for him and a reminder of how many acclaimed actors are working on television these days.

Strange New Worlds is a Discovery spin-off and relies heavily on the original Star Trek itself. Anson Mount plays Captain Pike, who flew the USS Enterprise before Captain Kirk, and Ethan Peck is Spock. Love space adventures? A strange new world is yours.

It's been a while since AMC launched a strong new series. A dark wind that itches. Set in the Navajo Reservation, this crime thriller is highlighted by Zahn McClarnon's excellent performance as Police Officer Joe Leaphorn.
Like the reboot of Iron Chef America, there are enough changes to make this a new show. First, it's on Netflix. Second, Alton Brown has co-hosted Kristen Kish. It's a great addition to the mix. It's also designed for bingeing, so it's formatted differently but works just as well.
