Maniac 

Maniac Netflix Miniseries

IMDb: 7.8/10

There’s no way a show isn’t legendary if it stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill. This one-of-a-kind comedy-drama flaunts an old school science fiction vibe and almost feels like a sci-fi straight out of the 80s. The premise of the show – two strangers connecting during a mind-bending, mysterious pharmaceutical trial – is invigorating and creepy at the same time. Funny, dark and psychologically stimulating – we highly recommend this one!
