If the mouthful of a title alone won’t pique your curiosity to watch this, then maybe knowing Kristen Bell gives a stunning performance (as usual) will. The Woman in the House Across the Street follows Anna who spends her days drowning her sorrows in wine. One night while she’s in the middle of her only activity — staring out the window — she witnesses a murder next door. Was it real or did her wine-and-pills-addled brain make it up? You might have guessed this miniseries is a parody/satire of all the other mysteries out there where women witness bizarre things no one believes happened. It makes fun of The Woman in the Window and The Girl on the Train while being so enjoyable, it could stand on its own. Watch it on Netflix.
Starring: Will Arnett, Conan O’Brien, Ken Jeong, and more
