we start.

‘Afterlife’ S3

After Life Season 3 Scene

created by Ricky Gervais | Distribution: Gervais, Tom Basden, Tony Way, etc.

We kick off one of those comedies in the “downer series” subgenre with the final season of Ricky Gervais’ wonderful exploration of grieving and getting back up (if you can).

‘The Afterparty’

Haddish After Party

created by Christopher Miller | Distribution: Tiffany Haddish, Sam Richardson, Zoë Chao, etc.

We lovers of mystery comedy are having such good years and this is a great example of this with a fun murder case in a series that jumps from genre to genre according to the different stories and personalities of the main suspects.

‘Atlanta’ S3

Atl 302 0026r 2

created by Donald Glover | Distribution: Donald Glover, Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Stanfield and Zazie Beetz

It has taken a while to come out but how good it is to come out. A season 3 that takes Earn, Paper Boi and company on tour in Europe while continuing to mark fabulous self-contained episodes in its incisive message.

can be seen in Disney+ | Criticism

‘Barry’ S3

Barry Hbo Season 3

created by Bill Hader and Alec Berg | Distribution: Bill Hader, Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, etc.

Perhaps too much time has gone by with this one as well, and the truth is that the life of this murderer with an acting vocation has returned more powerful and darker than normal, delving into the inconsistencies of leaving the past behind.

can be seen in HBO Max | Criticism

‘The Bear’

created by Christopher Storer | Distribution: Jeremy Allen White, Ebon Moss-Bacharach, etc.

While it may even be somewhat daring to consider it a comedy because of the intensity it carries, this is probably one of the series that has hit critics the most this year with an oppressive “kitchen nightmare.”

can be seen in Disney+ | Criticism

‘Abbott College’ (Abbott Elementary)

Abbott Elementary

created by Fifth Brunson | Distribution: Brunson, Tyler James Williams, Janelle James, etc.

Now let’s go for something much more classic with this wonderful “office” comedy that takes us to the lives of some teachers. One of the series with the most heart (and full of love for the guild) of all the ones you will find on this list.

can be seen in Disney+ | Criticism

‘Derry Girls’ S3

Derry Girls Img2

created by Lisa McGee | Distribution: Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Louisa Harland, etc.

We’re leaving our favorite Irish teens but that hasn’t stopped us from having a big send-off. Fun, quirky and very true to herself with her 90’s look.

can be seen in Netflix | Criticism

‘They give the blow’ (A League of their Own)

League Prime Video Loto S1 Ut 103 210827 Foxann 00051rc2

created by Abbi Jacobson and Will Graham | Distribution: Abbi Jacobson, Chanté Adams, D’Arcy Carden, etc.

Every summer a big surprise falls and this one has been the new version of the 90s sports movie. On this occasion and in series format, we find a wonderful comedy that takes us to those beginnings of the women’s baseball league .

can be seen in Prime Video | Criticism

Hacks T2

Hacks Season 2 Smart Einbinder

created by Lucia Aniello, Paul W. Downs, Jen Statsky | Distribution: Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinder

It was the revelation comedy of 2021 and this year it has confirmed, with this bus tour, that excellent is insufficient to describe the give and take of this comic duo. Sharp, thoughtful and hilarious.

can be seen in HBO Max | Criticism

‘Heartstopper’

Heartstopper Netflix Scene

created by Alice Osman | Distribution: Kit Connor, Joe Locke, etc.

Another of the surprises of the year has been this magnificent adolescent romantic comedy that goes far beyond the boy meets boy and those clichés to tell us about the day-to-day life of a group of young people in a way that is as beautiful as it is casual.

‘What we do in the shadows’ (What We Do in the Shadows) S4

What We Do In The Shadows Season 4 Premiere Review Reunited 3nub

created by Jemaine Clement | Distribution: Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demtriou, Harvel Guillén and Mark Proksch

I admit that this season has come a little late in my year (it hasn’t given me life) but it was putting on the first episode and watching all of season 4 in just a couple of days. The most hilarious vampires return showing why they are still the kings of absurd comedy.

can be seen in HBO Max

‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) S4

Marvelous Mrs Maisel S4 2

created by Amy Sherman-Palladino | Distribution: Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein, Michael Zegen, etc.

We may now see this series with a touch of “who’s seen you and who sees you” but it’s still as wonderful, as happy place as ever. A superb biting period comedy and wonderfully shot.

can be seen in Prime Video | Criticism

‘Russian Doll’ (Russian Doll) T2

Russian doll

created by Natasha Lyonne, Leslye Headlan, and Amy Poehler | Distribution: Natasha Lyonne, Chloe Sevigny, Charlie Barnett

Its first season was brutal and this second installment has been even better. The loop is reinvented to put us back into a new temporary nightmare, this time via the New York subway.

can be seen in Netflix | Criticism

‘Mythic Quest’ S3

Mythic Quest Photo 030208

created by Charlie Day, Megan Ganz, Rob McElhenney | Distribution: Rob McElhenney, Charlotte Nicdao, etc.

Within the great office comedies category, Ubisoft’s continues to be a great example of how to address both the genre and the world of videogames with a season 3 that continues to deliver very, very special episodes.

can be seen in AppleTV+ | Criticism

‘I don’t like driving’

Tnt I Don't Like Cond 63a060a27b3fb

created by Borja Cobeaga | Distribution: Juan Diego Botto, Lucía Caraballo, etc.

The only Spanish entry goes to Cobeaga’s latest comedy, which takes us to the world of driving schools when you are already old. Very polished and with directly priceless characters.

It can be seen on TNT Now | Criticism

‘Rick and Morty’ S6

Rick And Morty 60b0dc9f4a6f1

created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon

Harmon and Roiland are spoiling us with the new production rates of this magnificent animated series whose last season has come to us in two batches, the first a bit “bottle” and the second more “as always”. Hilarious but also aware of his own maturation.

can be seen in HBO Max | Criticism

‘Only Murders in the Building’ (Only Murders in the Building) T2

Only Murders In The Building Season 2

created by Steve Martin and John Hoffman | Distribution: Steve Martin, Martin Short, Selena Gomez

The podcaster trio returns and they have done so with a season that, although it loses the surprise factor, retains all its ingenuity and even manages to bring a certain self-awareness to the table as it delves deeper into the lore of the building.

can be seen in Disney+ | Criticism

‘Somebody Somewhere’

Somebody Somewhere

created by Hannah Bos and Paul Thureen | Distribution: Bridget Everett, Jeff Hiller, etc.

Almost as soon as the year began, we were able to devour one of the best series of 2022 with this tender comedy about friendship and finding its place once we are over forty.

can be seen in HBO Max | Criticism

‘Starstruck’ T2

Starstruck Season 2 9032cb3

created by Rose Matafeo | Distribution: Rose Matafeo, Nikesh Patel and Emma Sidi

In the “why is this treat so short” category we have this British romantic comedy that jumps from date to date to explore this couple’s relationship. Light, intelligent and hilarious at the same time.

can be seen in HBO Max | Criticism

‘The sex lives of college girls’ (The Sex Lives of College Girls) S2

College Girls Sex Life T2 Critical

created by Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble | Distribution: Pauline Chalamet, Amrit Kaur, Reneé Rapp and Alyah Chanelle Scott

And we end this list with a double from Mindy Kaling. The first, the university partying of these girls who continue to be the most charismatic and with the most chemistry that you can find on television. A new season directly hilarious.

can be seen in HBO Max | Criticism

‘I never’ (Never Have I Ever) T3

i never3

created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher | Distribution: Maitrey Ramakrishnan, Darren Barnett, Jaren Lewison, etc.

The second series is this monumental teen comedy with a season 3 of Devi’s moves. The best thing is that you think about it and it’s really a one-of-a-kind series with that unusually sensitive exploration of adolescence.
