The Best Shows to Stream in 2021, By Service

If anything, there hasn’t been any shortage of digital content to stream during the novel coronavirus pandemic, and it’s been beneficial for the lot of us, who are stuck inside our apartment homes in Houston, Texas. No matter what you’re in the mood to watch or how much time you have to devote to each episode, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in their copious amounts of extra free time. From thrillers and sci-fi to action and adventure, finding your favorite genre is no issue with any one of these major streaming networks below. The good news is that these networks have plenty of quality programming for you to binge, as well! Take a look at our top 3 picks:

Servant (Apple TV)

Typical of M. Night Shyamalan’s body of work, this psychological horror series by the name of Servant left viewers puzzled, shocked, and terrified throughout its first season. The plot centers around a mother who hires a nanny to help care for her baby as she heads back to work. Quickly, it is revealed that there’s something off about the child – it’s just a lifelike doll. Following the arrival of the shy, young nanny, strange occurrences begin to happen, even though the nanny cares for the child as if it were real. Season two of the series began in mid-January of this year, after the first season left viewers aghast, to say the least! If you hop on-board this series, you’ll be happy to learn that it’s already been renewed for a third season.

WandaVision (Disney+)

In the latest project set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprise their roles as Wanda Maximoff – aka Scarlet Witch – and Vision. This miniseries, WandaVision, is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, and now that Thanos is no longer a threat, the pair are just your average couple living a boring, suburban life in Westview, while trying to conceal their powers. They enter different decades, deal with typical television tropes, and bring a new level of humor to the characters. If you think that’s all there is to the plotline, though, you are incredibly mistaken, as this story simply sets up a variety of films and TV series that will be released in the MCU between 2021 and 2023. Are you ready?

The One (Netflix)

Based on bestselling John Marrs’ novel, The One is sure to fill your need for dystopian sci-fi, while Black Mirror’s future hangs in the balance. Speaking of Black Mirror, this romantic, sci-fi series has been compared to a pivotal episode of the favorite British series, “Hang the DJ” that also looks at how computer-based algorithms impact human relationships. The One focuses on a DNA researcher at a tech company called MatchDNA, who discovers a way to locate the perfect romantic partner for just about anyone, but the implications are both promising and potentially damaging. All it takes is a single hair strand to find out who you are genetically predisposed to fall in love with, and needless to say, it leads to a host of complications and intrigue.
