Who needs to go to the movies when we are experiencing a new Golden Age of television? Here are 10 must-see shows to watch in 2019.
True Detective Season 3 (HBO – January 13)
Probably the only real crime with this series is how bad season 2 was compared to season 1. But this time-jumping crime drama starring Mahershala Ali as a detective investigating a colder-than-zero missing persons case looks like it might have found its footing again. Although the bulk of the story relies on the unreliability of the main character’s memories for narration, we viewers are relying on creator Nic Pizzolatto to return us to the riveting drama he gave us in the beginning.
Carmen Sandiego (Netflix – January 18)
The only person in the world harder to find than Waldo, Carmen Sandiego taught a whole generation history and geography while she stole it out from under our noses. This prequel series has a younger Carmen (voiced by “Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez) learning the ropes of being a master thief while simultaneously preventing even worse crimes from being committed… and of course there’s history and geography because it’s a kid’s show. The new Carmen Sandiego may be worth tracking down.
