Everything's Gonna Be Okay is one of the best 2020 TV shows

Fans of Australian comedian Josh Thomas’s winning, melancholy series Please Like Me (featuring a pre- Nanette Hannah Gadsby) will be glad to find he’s got another irascible and tetchy lead character in his repertoire. In Everything’s Gonna Be Okay , Thomas plays entomologist Nicholas, who becomes guardian for his two teenage half-sisters after their father’s death. As he did with Please Like Me , Thomas excels as zigging where other family comedies would zag, creating strikingly unique characters with lived-in details and glaring flaws who dare you to love them despite it all. —R.
