For the most part, it seems like American television has steered away from espionage dramas on the international horizon, which once were such a buzz. But if you need to get your international spy thrill fix, then we’ve got just the show for you. This series follows an Israeli spy or Mossad agent, played by Niv Sultan, as she navigates Iran, the country where she was born.
Her missions include shutting down the country’s plans for nuclear weapons. The show won an International Emmy for Best Drama and featured the 8-time Oscar-nominated Glenn Close from “Fatal Attraction” and “Dangerous Liaisons” for its second season.
The Super Models
The biggest selling point for this show may be the fact that you'll get to spend four hours with some of the most beautiful ladies to ever exist on the planet. But this docuseries has a lot more to offer than that. "The Super Models" spotlights the extraordinary careers and lives of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington.
Viewers will get some never-before-seen footage that parades their walks to fame via the most candid interviews. They give a lot of insight into what happens behind the scenes in the cruel world of fashion as it blew up and entered the mainstream in the 90s. It's a great docuseries, but don't expect anything too deep.
Monarch: Legacy of Monsters
"Monarch: Legacy of Monsters" is an adventurous Sci-Fi series set after the battle between the Titans and Godzilla. This series started in 2023 and leads the cinematic monsterverse to the small screen by tracking the hidden cabal Monarch that studies and hunts massive unidentified terrestrial organisms (MUTOs).
Kurt Russel from "The Hateful Eight" plays the man tied to the Monarch in the existing timeline. Meanwhile, his actual real-life son Wyatt Russell plays the younger version of him during a flashback timeline. This series has a lot of monster potential thanks to the obliterating visuals, astounding set pieces, and an intriguing cast.
With a cast consisting of the likes of Ben Schwartz, Ken Jeong, Tiffany Haddish, Sam Richardson, and many more, it is clear that something special was going on when "The Afterparty" was made for Apple TV+. Truth be told, the plot has shifted a little since its initial premise — a pop star gets whacked at the afterparty of a high school reunion.
The creator, Christopher Miller, is one of the hottest in the scene at the moment, and this creation of his just reinforces his status in the filmmaking world today. This hysterical mystery is unlike anything gracing our screens of late, so if crime and comedy are something that speaks to you, then perhaps this should be your next watch.
The Reluctant Traveler With Eugene Levy
There are a ton of celebrity travel shows out there, and they aren't all great, but we can vouch for this one. As the name hints, Levy would much rather be chilling at home on his couch, but here he goes to far-away treasures like the Maldives, Venice, and Finland, to name a few, which may be strikingly beautiful, but believe it or not, he will still find something to moan about.
What makes the show so special is thanks to Levy's whining it actually ends up being more of a one-man play than a travel show. It's candid, it's funny, and we can't recommend it more if you'd like to see "Schitt's Creek's" Levy try out the travel thing.
