Emily in Paris is back for season 3, and season 4 will be released next December 2023, probably. (They just don’t know, but Netflix definitely OKed season 4.)
The Bear: 2022 (Hulu) A young chef from the fine dining world comes home to Chicago to run his family sandwich shop after a heartbreaking death in his family. A world away from what he's used to, Carmy must balance the soul-crushing realities of small business ownership, his strong-willed and recalcitrant kitchen staff and his strained familial relationships, all while grappling with the impact of his brother's suicide. As Carmy fights to transform both the shop and himself, he works alongside a rough-around-the-edges kitchen crew that ultimately reveals itself as his chosen family. It’s too hectic for Gary but I like it.
Fleishman Is In Trouble: 2022 (Hulu) Recently divorced 41-year-old Toby Fleishman (Jesse Eisenberg) dives into the brave new world of app-based dating with the kind of success he never had dating in his youth, before he got married at the tail end of medical school. But just at the start of his first summer of sexual freedom, his ex-wife Rachel (Claire Danes) disappears leaving him with 11-year-old Hannah and 9-year-old Solly and no hint of where she is or whether she plans to return. As he balances parenting, the return of old friends Libby and Seth, a potential promotion at the hospital that is a long time coming, and all the eligible women that Manhattan has to offer, he realizes that he'll never be able to figure out what happened to Rachel until he can finally face what happened to their marriage in the first place. There is a lot of sex and some nudity, so beware. We like this series and thank Nancy A., AZ for alerting us.
Miss Scarlet and the Duke: 2020 (PBS-If you donate at least $50 to your local PBS channel, you can stream.) When her father dies, Eliza Scarlet finds herself facing a difficult choice. As an unmarried woman, she faces poverty without a husband to provide for her -- unless she takes on the challenge of running her late father's detective agency, which would be unthinkable for a respectable Victorian lady. Fortunately, she finds an unlikely partner in the unconventional Detective Inspector William Wellington of Scotland Yard, known as "The Duke," and the pair begins to tackle the crimes and mysteries of Victorian London together. There are three seasons, 6 episodes a season, on PBS streaming platform. (Season 3 will premiere Sunday, January 3, 2023 at 8 p.m. ET on PBS Masterpiece, if you want to see it live.) Gary doesn’t much care for this one. I will look at another couple of episodes by myself—maybe.
