There was no shortage of stellar seasons to binge-watch last year, some arriving with a swag of Emmys in tow. Here are STACK’s ten best TV series released on home entertainment formats in 2021 – in no particular order.

THE CROWN: SEASON 4
What we said: “Series four is a scandalous smorgasbord of drama with an ensemble of incredible performances. With so many landmark moments, there’s a definite sense of urgency this time, as episodes pivot from one historical event to another.”

THE GREAT: SEASON 1
What we said: “This satirical series rewrites the rise of Russian monarch Catherine the Great as an absurd coming-of-age journey that’s just as much fun as it sounds. Elle Fanning grabs the title role with glee.”

What we said:Green Book with monsters! Balancing the fantastic with real world issues, this weird and wonderful horror series is an often grotesque thrill ride in the tradition of American Gods and Watchmen.”

MARE OF EASTTOWN
What we said: “Kate Winslet earns her Emmy as a world-weary cop in a rural US community. A gripping and downbeat procedural series with ample twists, turns and emotional punch.”

THE BOYS: SEASON 2
What we said: “The second year of the subversive superhero series dials up the craziness and intensity to a whole new level. It’s bigger, bloodier, and the stakes are a lot higher.”
