[/blockquote]The month of brokenness is upon us, opening up a new year and as well forcing us to open up our pockets to buy more data to enjoy the TV shows on the newly launched Netflix in Uganda. January is a lot more than just looking for dimes to survive the brokenness. It’s also (and I think truly) about planting yourself on the couch, stomach full to bursting, while you watch some of the best Netflix TV online to fight off that tryptophan coma and thoughts of where to get your next meal. As always, there’s entirely too much good television out there to really watch in one long month. But you might as well try, since, let’s face it, you’ll probably need to relive some stress once in a while. Since Netflix has decided to censor some TV shows in certain countries, here are some recommendations for great Netflix TV you can binge watch this month.

Penny DreadfulPenny Dreadful

The Classic Tales of Dracula , Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Grey and more are woven together in this horror series set in the dark streets of London. The title refers to the penny dreadfuls, a type of 19th-century cheap British fiction publication with lurid and sensational subject matter.

Master of NoneMaster of None

It’s pretty easy to compare Master of None to other New York-centric shows like Louie, but Aziz Ansari’s new sitcom breaks from the pack by being smart, heartfelt, and, most importantly, hopeful. When the city is stereotyped as a breeding ground for cynics, that’s a pretty special thing to be.

W/ Bob and DavidW Bob and David

Bob Odenkirk already has a ton going on these days, what with Better Call Saul (which you should definitely watch) and his upcoming Netflix movie Girlfriend’s Day. But if you’re an old-school Mr. Show fan or just love subversive sketch comedy that’s way more thinky than outright LOLworthy, then we don’t need to tell you to get this in your queue.
