The young adult fantasy drama The Girl in the Woods is one of the best new shows of 2021. The show follows a teenage girl who runs away to a desolate mining town. Carrie (Stefanie Scott) escapes from a cult & finds new friends to battle real-life monsters. The Girl in the Woods has gotten generally positive ratings & seems to have a similar vibe to Stranger Things.
Set in the Pacific Northwest, The Girl in the Woods shares similarities to the bizarro Americana of Twin Peaks. The Girl in the Woods is available to watch on NBC’s Peacock streaming service. While you need a subscription to watch the whole series, you can watch the first three episodes for free. Peacock offers many more shows that you can view free of charge.
Law & Order: Criminal Intent
If you’re a fan of the police procedural Law & Order, then you may want to check out the spinoff series Law & Order: Criminal Intent. This series follows the NYPD Major Case Squad as they try to solve significant crimes. We also get to see the crimes happen from the criminal’s point of view. Law & Order: Criminal Intent aired from 2001 to 2011.
The series stars Kathryn Erbe & Vincent D’Onofrio. You may know D’Onofrio from his role as Private Pyle in Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket. Law & Order: Criminal Intent also features frequent guest appearances from famous actors, including Jeff Goldblum. You can watch the crime drama series for free on Peacock.
Before this series got adapted for an American version starring Elijah Wood, it was an Australian cult hit. The original Wilfred ran for two seasons between 2007 & 2010 on SBS One in Australia. The show received acclaim from critics & won several television awards in Australia. The original Wilfred stars Jason Gann, Adam Zwar, and Cindy Waddingham.
The series follows Sarah (Waddingham) & her boyfriend Adam (Zwar). Adam sees Sarah’s dog Wilfred (Gann) as a man in a dog suit. Most of the comedy in the series comes from Adam & Wilfred’s dynamic, and the fact that Sarah sees Wilfred as just a regular dog. You can watch this dark Australian comedy for free on Peacock.
This crime thriller is one of NBC’s most successful original programs. The Blacklist follows high-profile criminal Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader). Red is a former U.S. Navy officer who spent years evading capture. He eventually turns himself in to the FBI, yet has a proposition to make. In exchange for immunity, Red offers to inform on top criminals.
Much like The Silence of the Lambs, Red requests to work with FBI rookie Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone). The Blacklist is created & written by Jon Bokenkamp, and has amassed 178 episodes. The Blacklist just had a new season premiere on October 21st. You can watch the critically-acclaimed series for free on Peacock, yet it’s also available on Netflix.
