Screenwriter and journalist Starr, with additional contributors, categorizes streamable shows into 10 groupings; there are shows for when readers want to laugh, be shocked, get cozy, learn new things, and more. Information is conveyed at a glance by bold-type one-liners (viewers are advised to check out The IT Crowd for “a smart take on nerdy I.T. specialists”) and icons indicating episode length and suggested audience. Short descriptions follow, often noting awards and main actors and including snippets from reviews. Photos and “You Might Also Enjoy…” entries add interest. There’s global representation, but most selections are from the United States or Britain.
VERDICT An almost endless source of ideas, from Fawlty Towers and Hill Street Blues to Small Axe and Bridgerton. Bound to be popular at most libraries.
