1. Sharp Objects
Amy Adams stars as Camille Preaker in Sharp Objects. She is an alcoholic reporter who goes back to her small Missouri hometown to investigate the murders of two young girls. Camille has a history of self-harm, and memories of her own trauma bubble to the surface once she’s reunited with her cold but overbearing mother (Patricia Clarkson).
While Sharp Objects lacks the delirious fun of The Flight Attendant, there are shades of Camille in Cassie — they both self-medicate to cope with their pain, and they’ve both carried their troubled relationships with their mothers into adulthood. It’s an incredibly dark series, but gorgeous, fully realized, and totally worth your time! Watch the trailer down below!
The first season of YOU follows the story of Joe Goldberg, a bookstore manager in New York, who upon meeting Guinevere Beck, an aspiring writer, becomes infatuated with her.

They’re both executive-produced by Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, and share key behind-the-camera talent, like the awesomely named director Silver Tree. They’re both super-fun thrillers that refuse to take themselves too seriously, blending twisty suspense plots with hilarious dark humor. Though You is a shade darker than Flight Attendant!
