Netflix Picks #2: 3 TV Shows to Watch on Netflix

Netflix Picks, the post series where I recommend things that you can watch right now on Netflix, is back again!

With season 4 of Sherlock set to arrive.... whenever Steven Moffat feels like it, there is no better time than the present to catch up with the modern reimagining of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary detective, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the series' relative brevity, basically nine 90 minute TV movies, BBC's Sherlock is an absolute must watch. Benedict Cumberbatch is a brilliant Holmes and Martin Freeman is, by far, my favorite John Watson put to screen. Equally balancing characterization, humor, and each mystery, Sherlock elevates the TV mystery genre to new heights, and being so short, you have absolutely no reason not to watch this brilliant and witty adventure.
Seasons: 3
Episodes: 9
Runtime: 90 mins
The IT Crowd
A British comedy about the IT (Information Technologies) department at Reynholm Industries, a fictional corporation in London, The IT Crowd is one of the pure funniest TV shows ever made. With a zany style all its own, The IT Crowd is a unique comedy to be sure. Instead of going the route of quantity over quality, like many US sitcoms, The IT Crowd only features 24 episodes over 4 seasons. Each episode is like a setup to several big jokes with the punchline at the end, with many smaller hilarious jokes intertwined.  Describing how the series' humor works is difficult, but you are up for some wacky and occasionally surreal comedy that defies conventions, watch The IT Crowd. 
Warning: The IT Crowd is intended for mature audiences. There are occasional uses of strong profanity, as well as potentially offensive humor (but what comedy doesn't have that?).
Seasons: 4
Episodes: 24
Runtime: 24 mins
Star Wars: The Clone Wars
The Force Awakens is on its way, and in the meantime, why not watch some of the best on-screen Star Wars stories since the Original Trilogy. While the first few episodes lean towards less mature themes, after the episode "Rookies," The Clone Wars turns into best thing to happen to the Star Wars franchise in years. Unfortunately, The Clone Wars is one the casualties of Disney buying the franchise, and thus it did not receive a proper conclusion. However, that should not dissuade you from experiencing the series' many exciting stories that explore new regions of the Star Wars mythos. In many ways, it is a perfect showcase of what the upcoming standalone films can and should be. Some episodes might feature zombie-esque thrills, while others might explore a more mystical side of the Force. Regardless, The Clone Wars is a must-watch for Star Wars fans of all-ages.
Seasons: 6
Episodes: 121
Runtime: 24 mins
