    If you like a ted talk/comedy combo make sure to watch Nanette by Hannah Gadsby! I can't recommend it enough, it's so good but also really hard-hitting.

    The Dragon Prince on netflix is soooo good! Its by the creators of avatar the last airbender i.e. the best cartoon show (and maybe just show in general) ever. And the guy who voices Sokka in ATLA voices one of the main guys in dragon prince!!!!

    A recommendation for a tv show I never hear anyone talk about: Z: The Beginning of Everything (2015) It's about Zelda Fitzgerald and her relationship with F. Scott Fitzgerald. I thoroughly enjoyed the first season. Sadly they've never renewed for further seasons.. :(

    I think you'd love Please Like Me, it's an australian sitcom following the life of a newly out gay guy and his friends, it feels a lot like New Girl at times, just darker in humor and a little more rural lol I'm guessing a lot of people have rec'd it, but Normal People is such a beautiful show!!! And in terms of stand up, you might like Hannah Gadsby... I'm not sure, like her comedy is almost not comedy but I love all the specials you mentioned, so you might like her stuff too? Dunno

    Hey Ashley, I love your channel! But lately, there have been several critical youtube videos about you, and I think that a response to them is something you should think about. Overall, I think you are a very unproblematic youtuber, but there are always things to improve on for everyone! No hate, I of course am still supportive of your content, but I'm also in favor of constructive criticism!! :))

    Amazing list, thank you for the recs!! Something I think you might like based on these is Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. An absolutely unique way of film-making and musical-making, created by and starring Rachel Bloom, one of the greatest talents of our times IMO. It centers around an extremely important issue which is not often depicted, let alone so well and so... realistically (kinda), on television: mental health (no more info to avoid spoilers). There is a lot of second-hand embarrassement, especially towards the beginning, but it has SUCH a well-written plot, ingenious music, and possibly the most amazing character developments through four seasons I have ever seen.

    Fleabag is so good! Its got that dry Brit comedic sense with a bit of US black comedy sensibility thrown into the storytelling. I was trying to describe it to a friend and ended up saying ‘like Peep Show with a Bojack Horseman streak’. I didn’t think of Fargo but it totally sits in that vein too. Also sorry to be nitpicky but didn’t Boo get hit by a bicycle, then a car and then another bike?
