So grab your remote, and your favorite snacks, and let’s embark on a journey through the best TV has to offer this December. It’s time to make those long winter nights a little warmer and much more entertaining!

Hulu’s Black Cake is a sumptuous feast for the senses, much like its namesake dessert. Rich in cultural flavors and layered with intrigue, this adaptation of Charmaine Wilkerson’s novel centers on the enigmatic Eleanor Bennett. Despite her early exit, Eleanor, portrayed with a mature gravitas by Mia Isaac, anchors the show’s global family drama. 

Her secret-filled life unfolds through flashbacks, adding depth to each episode. The series occasionally veers into the mundane, but Eleanor’s fiery character cuts through the saccharine, revealing complex layers underneath.

Colin From Accounts on Paramount+ isn’t your typical corporate comedy. It’s an Australian rom-com, featuring Ashley and Gordon’s quirky journey from car crash to co-parenting a special-needs dog. Harriet Dyer and Patrick Brammall, both series creators, avoid clichés, delivering a rom-com with sharp wit and genuine warmth, perfect for fans of unconventional love stories.

Showtime’s The Curse is a unique blend of comedy and psychological thriller. Nathan Fielder’s character, Asher Siegel, brings an awkward charm to this satire of reality TV and real estate shows, turning it into a Hitchcockian adventure. His performance is a key element in the show’s suspenseful, offbeat appeal.

FX on Hulu presents A Murder at the End of the World, a show that cleverly juggles multiple genres. It’s a detective story set against a backdrop of climate apocalypse, echoing the thematic and narrative complexity of creators Brit Marling & Zal Batmanglij’s earlier work. This series trades speculative sci-fi for a more grounded, yet equally compelling, reality.

Hulu’s Obituary brings a fresh twist to the murder genre. Siobhán Cullen shines as Elvira Clancy, a morbid writer turned murderer, in this darkly comedic crime drama. Her character’s descent into homicidal madness adds a gripping layer of mystery to the series.

Finally, Ghosts UK on CBS and Paramount+ outshines its American counterpart with its sharper cast and more refined humor. This British version brings a richer cultural context to the ghostly comedy, making it a must-watch for those who appreciate a more nuanced approach to sitcoms.
