From Marvel, to climate change to lizard people, if you’re ready for some doomsday humour – Maron is your guy.

Now available on Netflix, it might be time to test if laughter truly is the best medicine.

Since studies show pessimists also live longer, End Times Fun seems like the closest thing we have to a vaccine right now.

Has anyone called the CSIRO?

Based on a true story, this eerie Netflix Original is sure to have you double checking the deadbolt. Available on Netflix.

Black Monday (2019)

Take a trip back to New York, 1987 where the dreams were big and the hair was bigger.

This outrageous comedy series shows how a group of outsiders took on the white-collar Wall Street boys club and caused the worst stockmarket crash in history.

The binge-worthy series has just released its second season and is backed by Hollywood heavyweights Don Cheadle, Regina Hall and Seth Rogen.

Seriously, this show is a quarantine dream and you can catch it on Stan.


Brooklyn Nine-Nine (2013)

Noice! Catch your faves from the 99th police precinct as they close cases, solve crimes and deliver comedy gold.

The seventh season of this cult series is available for a limited time on SBS On Demand.

But if you prefer to kick it old school, new episodes will air on SBS every Friday at 12.30pm.

If you’re late to the party or just want to enter a B99 black hole binge, you can also catch the first six seasons on Netflix.

Cool cool cool cool cool, no doubt, no doubt.

Beastars (2019) 

This award-winning anime series is written and illustrated by Paru Itagaki and depicts life in high school for a group of anthropomorphic animals.

But don’t be fooled by the fun, colourful animation – this show is definitely not for kids.

This refreshing new series is available on Netflix now and in English for those who hate subtitles.
