Archer revolves around the secret agent sterling archer, who works for an intelligence agency by the name of ISIS(Pun intended) run by his mom(Malory Archer). Despite his competence as a skilled agent, Archer is considered by his mom to be a man child, sleeping around and often evading his responsibilities.

Directed by Jason Bateman, Ozark is one of the most underrated shows on Netflix. Ozark is a series about Marty(Jason Bateman), a financial advisor forced to launder money for a Mexican drug cartel. Not obeying the cartel’s orders would put his family in jeopardy, so he sets up a clever scheme to continue laundering money for the cartel while keeping the FBI off his back.
Much like Criminal, Mindhunter is a series based on FBI agent Holden Ford’s (Jonathan Groff) efforts to interview serial killers to understand what makes them tick. Kameron Britton as real-life serial killer Ed Kemper and Damion Harriman as the famous serial killer Charles Manson brilliantly portray the nefarious nature of a sociopathic murderer.
