Streaming Recommendations


Downton Abbey (Amazon Prime)

A stiff upper lip or lots of tissue is required when watching Downton Abbey, a historical drama following the escapades of the Crawleys, an aristocratic Edwardian family, and of course the servants, the below-stairs purveyors of service and intrigues. The series takes its name after the estate where the Crowleys live, die, cry, laugh, hate, and love. Watch all six seasons — you won’t be disappointed.


Mad Men (Netflix)

An American period drama, based in the 1960s, the show focuses on the cut-throat age of television advertising following the professional and personal life of Don Draper, an up-and-coming star in the business. Set at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency on Madison Avenue in New York City, special attention to historical context and content make this a standout creation. The highly acclaimed series received numerous awards including 16 Emmys and five Golden Globes. Take a step back in time and experience marketing at its button-down height.


The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu)

Creepy and fascinating all at once, The Handmaid’s Tale, based on the novel by Margaret Atwood, is set in Gilead, a dystopian society rising from the ashes of what used to be a part of the United States. In this new country, ruled by a set of fundamental extremists, women are considered property to be used as the new society leaders dictate — including being pawns to repopulate a devastated world. Fertile women are highly prized possessions whether they like or not. Follow Offred, a handmaid in this series, now in its second season. (Mature Audience Advisory).
