Finding a really good show to watch can be a hassle, which is why we put together a list of shows we’re watching and enjoying. You should check these shows out.
1. Is this SEAT taken? (ISIT)
Is this SEAT taken? Is a funny dating show on YouTube in which the host Chinasa Anukam goes on a date with a new person every episode. Chinasa is really funny and the way she makes her guest feels very comfortable during the show makes it easy to watch.
2. The Real Housewives of Lagos
Who doesn’t love chaos? Only one episode of RHOL has come out so far, and it’s already got our attention. The show promises us even more drama and the selected cast are enough proof that we’re going to get more than enough.
Maybe we have a thing for dating shows. This YouTube show is a peculiar kind of speed dating. Different people go on dates in which they can’t see the person on the other side. There are a few options to identify who you’re on a date with and one of these options includes calling a friend to tell you what the person looks like. Is this interesting or not???
4. Young, Famous & African
If you haven’t watched Young, Famous & African by now, you’re either very busy or living under a rock. Whatever the case is, you have time this Easter break to catch up. Get into it.
5. Bel Air
Remakes are usually hit-or-miss and Bel Air is a hit. The actor who plays young Will Smith (Jabari Banks) is a fresh face who understands the weight of his character. The Bel Air reboot doesn’t follow the exact same storyline as the original Fresh Prince of Bel Air and we love that. It’s a testament to a well-done reboot.
6. Top Boy
You’re definitely not on your “big man ting” (read this in IJGB British please) if you aren’t watching this show. Top Boy is about drug dealing and gang culture in the UK. The show depicts some violence, and we won’t recommend this if you don’t enjoy shows about crime with a sprinkle of gun violence.
TVSins is a YouTube channel dedicated to pointing out the “sins” in TV shows. Your favourite shows aren’t spared from them. If your thing is shitting on other people’s things, this is for you.
8. Abbott Elementary
Abbott Elementary is set in a public elementary school (or what we Nigerians call Primary school). The principal Ava doesn’t really know what she’s supposed to do as the principal and her character is one of the funniest on the show. Abbott Elementary is an effortlessly funny, well-done comedy.
Since that opening scene where Paper Boy randomly shoots somebody in public in Atlanta’s season 1, we’ve been hooked, seduced and sometimes confused. Atlanta is great because it’s not just about a young black rapper trying to get rich, it also covers important issues like sexuality and toxic masculinity. Donald Glover is a genius for this show.
10. The Ultimatum
The Ultimatum is a spin-off series of the Netflix show Love Is Blind. On this show, someone tells their partner to either marry them or leave — and that’s not even the craziest part. Each partner gets to date other people on the show and eventually decide if they want to stay with their original partner or not. Get ready to roll your eyes a lot while watching this.
