My favorite series from 2022


Here are several streaming series that I really enjoyed this year. (no spoilers)

Crash Landing on You

Yoon Se-ri is looking up and smiling. Her face is lit up by the sun & she's wearing a classic & stylish wool trench coat. Ri Jeong-hyeok is in the background, just out of focus, wearing his officer's uniform.

The premise: an heiress is paragliding when a windstorm blows her into North Korea, and an army officer tries to get her home without triggering an international incident. I became so emotionally invested in this beautiful love story and also in some of the side characters. 💖

Bee and Puppycat

Follows the adventures of Bee and Puppycat, who work for an intergalactic temp agency. It's very chill and fun, and the art is so cute. The creator Natasha Allegri also worked on the greatest animated series of all time, Adventure Time, and was a writer on the incredible Cannon Busters.

Extraordinary Attorney Woo

Woo Young-woo is on the train going to work. She's wearing noise canceling headphones and her eyes are closed. Her expression is serene and calm, even though the train seems crowded.

Woo Young-woo is an extremely capable and knowledgeable lawyer who also autistic. She starts her first job at a large law firm, and this show follows her as she takes on her first cases & makes new friends.

Los Espookys

Renaldo is wearing a light pink furry outfit that looks kinda like a bunny but also has a unicorn horn for some reason. He's sitting at a desk in an elementary school classroom full of students who look bored and also confused as to why he's there in the first place.
Los Espookys, streaming on HBO

Los Espookys is like an inverted Scooby Doo—instead of unmasking fake monsters, a group of gay goth friends are hired to dress up as the monsters and scare people themselves. It's an absurd and wildly creative horror-comedy.


A computer monitor with the barely visible reflection of 2 people. It's unclear exactly what they are looking at: there are numbers floating around on the screen and the Lumon corporate logo. The lights in the room are tinted red, which gives the picture a creepy vibe.
Severence, streaming on Apple TV

Lumon's office workers can sever their consciousness to create another version of themselves that goes to work on their behalf. It's a Kafkaesque corporate sci-fi thriller, where the corporate world is ubiquitious, disorienting, and, at times, nightmarish. *cue the Defiant Jazz* 🎷

A footnote: technically the last season of Crash Landing on You came out in 2020. But I watched both seasons this year.
