    1. Shannia Colon-Adorno

      I feel like you might like Workin Moms. It’s def along those lines of like almost too realistic and real but super funny

    2. Paj Tsua

      I don't think you listed Friends From College in your description - SO GOOD!

    3. Vicms221b

      SO many interesting recs ive never seen before! You would LOVE the DEAD TO ME series on Netflix! It's honestly the most flawless show I've ever seen as far as acting, script, and plot goes!

    4. Phoebe Doherty-Ozobiane

      Okay but the fact I've watched all four of those comedians and literally LOVE them all! Bo and Daniel and literally *next level funny* they're humour is honestly superior! lmao

    5. Bena F.

      your mind blows me away. thanks for all the work you put into your content. sending love!

    6. Aly Scarbrough

      Listen- I knew we would be best friends- this video solidifies it

    7. jackie ang

      while i love a lot of these shows I'm kinda bummed that most if not all of these recommendations feature a white leads and writers :(

    8. Kat Leonardis

      Hi Ashley, small recommendation for you, Dark on Netflix. I think you would really enjoy it! Would love to see you break it down :)

    9. Lisa Larionova

      would you be interested in doing a video about how to dress to a job or job interview? As a recent college grad, I'm still unfamiliar with what the right things to wear are

    10. Just another Brain fart

      Then there's me at 4 watching bojack with my dad ,my mom found out and just said wtf? Lololol

    11. Maria Mina

      you should watch great news, its a sitcom and its also produced by tina fey so that

    12. Melba Collier

      I love loads of the movies you had on your recommendation list so looking forward to watching some of these! Also Ashley your set up and also you are very aesthetically pleasing, just wanted to say

    13. Nina Uliková

      i watched pilots of most of these when i was younger and i just now realize how i legit wasn't prepared for this kind of quality also, i love how you mentioned where i could watch these shows like i'm not gonna pirate it

    14. Mariah Trinity

      What are your thoughts on Outlander? I love the show!

    15. Bryana Samuel

      can you do a video on styling monochromatic outfits? i’m obsessed with it rn and would love to see how you’d style clothes!

    16. mijuo roui

      If you like fleabag, you’ll love After Life by Ricky Gervais!!

    17. suspenders

      if you haven't, do yourself a favor and check out "crazy ex-girlfriend." it's a SUPER dark romantic cringe comedy, that's thinly veiled as a lighthearted broadway-esque fairytale. it's incredibly well written, the musical score is phenomenal, it has strong genuine women characters and it de-stigmatizes mental illness in probably the best way i've seen done in any show or movie. it's on netflix, HIGHLY recommended!

    18. fawu


      1. mijuo roui

        OMG have you watched Killing Eve? I really think you might like it!

    19. Emily Cranford

      If you haven't already, watch Shera and the princesses of power and Gilmore Girls both of which are on Netflix. Shera is amazing with a slightly rushed ending but it will forever be a favorite.

    20. Amy Nicole

      Omg thank you for shading la la land, my hero

    21. Luca Orbán

      You are going to love (!!!) Crazy Ex Girlfriend. It's female written (the writer of The Devil Wears Prada, and a sensation-icon-legend from youtube, Rachel Bloom) has a very diverse cast (they had four episodes in the third season i guess without a single straight white male character present), it addresses issues as serious as suicide, sexuality, mental health, achieveing your dream, etc. in the form of a musical comedy. It is so well made, and it is packed with talents like Santino Fontana or Donna Lynne Champlin. All of its four seasons are rated at least 95% on rotten tomatoes. It also got an Emmy. I could sort of describe it as a musical Fleabag. It is on Netflix. If you see this comment, just give it a chance. Search it on youtube, listen to "Don't be a lawyer" or "Trapped in a car with someone you don't wanna be trapped in a car with" I think those are pretty spoiler-free.

    22. Caitlin Kenyon

      OH MY GOD THAT LA LA LAND CALL OUT. I am deceased. Thank you, I needed that xD

    23. swiftie4lyf

      After watching that video on bestmess, all I can think during the intro of this video is how many times she must have had to say it😭😭😂😂😂

    24. Paulina Sok

      I recommend you sons of anarchy, it's really great show which is getting better with one another season i think you like it because while watching it you dont know what will happen next but you also have the feeling it's going to be bad

    25. Yoon Cheonsa

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="842">14:02</a> what did she mean?

    26. Alexandra Babin-Mirren

      I'm sure you've seen it already but, Broad City is so much fun to watch and a beautiful take one female friendships. One of my favs

    27. Mister Witchy

      Without giving spoilers did anyone else just despise the ending to bojack horseman? I was honestly so upset with it for days lol

    28. Angel O'Brien

      crazy ex girlfriend, has rachel bloom and is just so amazing

    29. Melissa Tran

      Ashley looks so sad. Dw Ashley you'll get this through quarantine

    30. Laura-Amélie Ohmann

      also, your eyes are really SPARKLING in this video!! love the makeup

    31. c r

      PLEASE watch THE OA and tell us what you think 🥺🥺🥺🥺 that’s literally my favorite show and i think there’s so much to admire in it, i’d honestly love to hear your opinion on it since you’re a film major. also thanks for the recommendations 💕

    32. Laura-Amélie Ohmann

      love the intro lol

    33. Morgan Marler

      OMG have you watched Killing Eve? I really think you might like it!

    34. Sabine Karlsson

      I love Parks & Recreation!

    35. Venom

      manic is like a book called "dreamology"......very very similar

    36. Abril Pampliega

      Bojack Horseman has turn into my favorite TV program of all time, period. It's just the best I've seen it all through like 5 times already

      1. Abril Pampliega

        I now want to watch it again

    37. Rosie Parry

      if you liked fleabag you should watch afterlife!

    38. Lieve op den Buijsch

      The elaborate and well thought out descriptions you give of these shows make me feel like bingewatching Netflix for days on end CAN actually make you a smarter and more intellectual person. Love ittttt

    39. Joyce Amarillas

      Omg i really really love big mouth i almost finished it

    40. Beatrice McMillan

      I love John Mulaney so much and I didn't realise why really but you just summed it up so well in this like what is it with comedians using sexism and racism as a default most of the time its not funny and it just makes me feel shit after also this is such good video!!!!!!

    41. Eden Lang

      Hey Ashely you need to watch "YOU" on Netflix. You have a similar taste in movies as me, I'm a sucker for complex characters and deep shows so please please watch "You" and make a review on it!!!!

    42. Núria Adamy

      Ashley watch ''Killing Eve''!!! It's a show about a woman assassin, one of the writers is Phoebe Walter Bridge, and it also has a lot of dark humour

    43. Miller Pyke

      Excellent List! Thanks Ashley. Also very much the same sentiment about Quarantine.

    44. Sophie Williams

      damn I've already traded five years of my life trying for the "so-called perfect body"

    45. Ana Corona

      You should make a podcast!!!!!!!

    46. Laura Navarrete

      I have a for real question, not trying to be snippy or hateful, just curious because I didn’t graduate college. If you were a film major in college but have now graduated with a degree, are you still considered a film major? Or is there a swanky new name after graduating?

    47. Taylor V

      I love Better Call Saul! Even more than Breaking Bad (only on the 3rd or 4th season of BB)

    48. Raphaëlle

      Sharp Objects is also amazing (direct by Jean-Marc Vallée who directed the 1st season of Big Little Lies) - it’s an adaptation of a novel written by the same author who gave us Gone Girl. The cinematography is amazing and the cast is stellar. Though it’s not for the faint of heart :’(

    49. Cecilia Salcedo

      KILLING EVE!!!!!!!!

    50. Holly Taylor

      Two shows I watched recently, that are amazing, are Peaky Blinders and Normal People. Would 100% recommend both of them!!

    51. ofir seinberg

      I luv you Ashley

    52. Alicia Gurl

      Anne With An E

    53. lizzie s-p

      omg maniac!! so glad someone else likes that show

    54. Paulo Fabregas

      you should definitely watch chewing gum by michaela cole!!!

    55. Afomia Tibebeselassie

      I have to correct tho. On Fleabag, Her Best Friend actually threw herself infront of a bike, not a bus. P.S I love your taste in movies/tv shows.

    56. Satya

      we really have the same taste

    57. Ariana Ault

      there’s a lot of people recommending things in the comments but I don’t see anyone talking about Barry with Bill Hader it’s about a Hitman who tries to become an actor it’s hilarious and has very complex characters and you don’t know who to root for because you kind of hate all of them but love them at the same time. It’s very dark but so ridiculously funny I recommend it to everyone I meet, it’s very well done and it reels you in.

    58. Camilla Zhang

      please watch Mad Men!!!!! It should be on the list of every females favorite tv shows

    59. ange! ange!

      When u mentioned Fleabag right at the start, I knew you could be trusted 😂😍

    60. Ariana Ault

      Maniac is fUCKING AMAZING i’ve watched that show three times it’s so good I love everything about it and no one that I know has watched it

    61. Cinnamon girl

      I love Crashing too! Just watch all British shows

    62. Cinnamon girl

      Fleabag is sooooo GOOD

    63. liaforyourtube L

      If you like time travel concepts, Dark is a great one!

    64. Vivian Lie

      This is like not really for an “adult” but i just wanna recommend an animation show here on CNsel it’s called BFDI by the channel jackandjellify, it’s not rly that serious just something fun that anyone can watch if they need a laugh

    65. Thaylin Millan

      and After Life

    66. Thaylin Millan

      also, Easy on Netflix

    67. Thaylin Millan

      Girlboss on Netflix!!

    68. madison swart

      Sex Education Dead to me Killing Eve - Phoebe Waller Bridge Crazy Ex Girlfriend All complicated women vibes

    69. Alesandra Echeandia

      normal people @ hulu 10/10

    70. Julia Piotrowska

      You should Watch Dark!

    71. Valerie Kurz

      I love Daniel Sloss just bc of those quotes I started a quote book where I write my favorites in

    72. iva

      can you do a video in which you tell us your favorite movies? that would be amazing.

    73. EmoNightDragon

      Please take care, Ashley 💕

    74. Lexi Rahne

      that hot australian in house (jesse spencer) comes to some of my family events because he’s my cousins bff! danced w him at a wedding once, thought you should know

    75. Clarice


    76. O K

      Extracurricular and kingdom on Netflix are so amazing. A total change in vibes too as they are South Korean dramas. Extracurricular is more of a crime drama but with a good depiction of the struggles of teenage students in Korea. Kingdom is set in a Korean dynasty and is definitely a political drama but with zombies, sounds so weird and zombies are so over done but damn this show it does everything so well. Both are must watch if not at least a must try.

    77. powmarti 96

      Good, I've already seen it all 😭💗

    78. Safiiritar

      I recommend Kidding! I was a bit reluctant at first because Jim Carrey stars in it and I find him a bit annoying but it was SO WORTH IT! It's about a kid's TV show host who is struggling to keep his family together and it's just really witty, funny and sad at the same time, which sounds like right up your alley, Ashley :)

    79. Moon Ha Jung

      It's only <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="5">0:05</a> from a whole 29 minutes video and my favorite girl on the internet is doing her trademark rap already 👏👏👏👏

    80. yee haw

      you should try our dark on netflix. its a german show involving time travel and stuff,, it really blew my mind. its like a far better version of stranger things
