‘Dead to Me’ brings together unlikely friends like the Hulu series
Netflix’s Dead to Me is a dark comedy starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini. After Jen’s (Applegate) husband dies in a hit-and-run accident, she joins a grief group to work through her loss. There, she meets Judy (Cardellini). The two form an instant connection, but Jen slowly begins to realize it was all a set-up.
After Judy moves into Jen’s pool house, she discovers Judy’s complicated relationship with her ex (James Marsden). As it turns out, he might be involved in her husband’s death. Ironically, the more Jen learns about Judy’s past, the deeper their ties become. Like Mabel (Selena Gomez), Charles (Steve Martin), and Oliver (Martin Short), Judy and Jen are an odd couple who become friends in an unlikely situation. Watch Dead to Me on Netflix.
‘The Flight Attendant’ is HBO Max’s ‘Only Murders in the Building’

The Flight Attendant‘s storylines are twisted and convoluted but in a suspenseful way that will keep you on your toes. Watch The Flight Attendant on HBO Max.
‘Fargo’s crime anthologies can fill the ‘OMITB’ void
The FX series Fargo reimagines the 1996 crime drama movie of the same name. In each season, a new crime presents itself in a different time period. At publication, there are four seasons of the FX series available and a fifth is on the way.
Fargo Season 1 follows Lorne Malvo’s (Billy Bob Thornton) and the malice, violence, and deception he brings to Bemidji, Minnesota in 2006. Then in season 2, the story changes. This time, the show follows beautician Peggy Blumquist (Kirsten Dunst) and her husband Ed Blumquist (Jesse Plemons) as they cover up her vehicular homicide in 1979.
In season 3, Fargo introduces probation officer Ray Stussy (Ewan McGregor) and his parolee girlfriend, Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). They attempt to steal a valuable vintage stamp in 2010, a crime that results in two deaths.
Finally, season 4 of the FX series takes place in 1950. It follows the crime organizations Cannon Limited, led by Loy Cannon (Chris Rock), and the Fadda Family, led by Josto Fadda (Jason Schwartzman). Watch Fargo on Hulu.
