15 Best TV Series to Watch Right Now – March 2019 Edition

It’s the first of March so I’m letting you know all the best tv series to watch right now!  I have personally watched all of these series (I have no life except for Stay at Home Mum and television) – I not everyone will have the same taste – but these are just epic so I had to share.

Oh and yes I’m obsessed with true crime… it’s a problem!  Here they go:

Sex Education (2019)

  • Starring: Gillian Anderson, Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey
  • Channel: Netflix
  • Genre: British Comedy, Drama

Premise: A British series about a Sex Therapist (Gillian Anderson) and her high-school aged son who has issues with self-pleasure.  He starts giving out sex advice to other students after listening to his Mothers therapy sessions and to fund cash on the side.  His side kick in his therapy sessions is from the opposite side of the tracks, and he is desperately in love with her.

My 2c Worth:  It is honestly a must-watch show.  Extremely well acted, well put together, hilariously funny and has crinch-worthy moments!

“Nothing says, ‘Happy Abortion’ like a bouquet.”

Mary Kills People

  • Starring: Caroline Dhavernas, Jay Ryan and Richard Short
  • Channel: SBS
  • Genre: Crime, Mystery

Premise: A doctor is putting people out of their misery by giving them a lethal dose of drugs – in exchange for payment.  When she kills the terminally ill son of a prominent Politician, the police get involved. Mary insists she is only giving these terminally ill patients counselling on their options to die. But Mary likes killing too much to stop.

My 2c worth:  I found this series quite by accident when looking through SBS and it is a real winner.  The story-line is believable and the main character uses her smarts to realistically avoid the police.

“Not a bad way to go, huh?  Clean sheets, nice view, free hair products.  I always pictured drowning in my own mucus in the ICU. This is better.” Morgan

The Umbrella Academy (2019)

  • Starring: Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castaneda
  • Genre: Fantasy
  • Channel: Netflix

Premise: Forty-three babies are unexpectedly born all on the same day to women who were not pregnant the day before.  A millionaire business man tries to adopt as many of the babies as possible and he ends up with seven.  He starts ‘The Umbrella Academy’.  You see, six of the seven children have very unusual powers or characteristics.

My 2c worth: I’m only two episodes in so far and I’m really enjoying it.  Like a polished version of Misfits.

Dirty John (2018)

  • Stars: Connie Britton, Eric Bana, Juno Temple, Julia Garner
  • Genre: True Crime
  • Channel: Netflix

Premise: Based on the famous podcast and true story of the same name, Dirty John is about a handsome Doctor who sweeps the four-times-married Debra Newell off her feet.  They get married rather quickly and settle in to domestic life.  But Debra’s daughters start noticing things are off about John, and he has been lying about who he is. Could Dirty John be the biggest con-artist there is?  It also has a totally shocking end to the story.

My 2c Worth: I was an avid follower of the podcast so I knew the story well.  It is a great series but I think Connie Britton plays a bit of a dummy considering Debra Newell had her own business and was quite clever.  Eric Bana (go you little Aussie) is totally creepy as Dirty John!

You (2018- )

  • Starring: Penn Badgley, Ambyr Childers, Elizabeth Lail
  • Genre: Crime, Drama, Romance
  • Channel: Netflix

Premise: Joe Goldberg seems a bit too good to be true.  He owns a bookstore, is handsome and seems to know what Guinevere wants before she even knows it. The thing is, Joe is a stalker of the highest order.  He also has a rape dungeon in the bottom of his bookstore masquerading as a secret vault for expensive books.

My 2c worth:  Look it is worth watching, and the first few episodes are epic.  But it gets a bit silly and unrealistic after that.  A girly show.

“Pro tip of the day: screen your calls when you’re trying to burn a body, because it turns out things slip out that you didn’t actually wanna say.”
