So many shows, so little time! Fortunately, Birdie makes it easy to decide your next binge through the power of personal recommendations. If you’re wondering what we’ve been watching this past month, look no further. We’ve summed up five of our favorite movies and series to stream this April.

Inventing Anna

Innocent or not, no one can stop talking about Anna Delvey – the German heiress who charmed her way into the clique of the NYC uber-rich. Inventing Anna follows the efforts of Vanity Fair journalist Vivian Kent, who skyrockets Delvey’s story to the front page of the zeitgeist. Not gonna lie-this show is definitely ridiculous. There’s campy writing, unbelievable plot twists, and a ridiculous accent, but it’s a fun binge watch!

What the Flock is Saying: “entertaining for sure – didn’t love the casting (she’s better as Ruth in Ozark) – but still couldn’t stop watching”

After watching Inventing Anna, check out The Eyes of Tammy Faye for another story of a media darling’s collapse.

tick, tick…BOOM!

Lin Manuel Miranda’s directorial debut stars Andrew Garfield as Jonathan Larson, the composer of the hit musical RENT. tick, tick…BOOM! is an autobiographical musical Larson wrote before he died in 1996. It depicts all the anxiety and second-guessing that accompanies a creative career. All songs are written by Larson, and the stunning performances by Garfield, Vanessa Hudgens, and an all-star Broadway cast make this story timeless and universal – and extremely hummable!

What the Flock is Saying: “Very entertaining. A great watch for any musical theater nerds.”

After watching tick, tick…BOOM! try In The Heights for another Lin Manuel Miranda masterpiece.

Money Heist

Money Heist is an EMMY-winning crime drama set in Spain that has won over a global audience. A criminal mastermind known as “The Professor” plans to print billions of euros in the Royal Mint of Spain – aiming to pull off the biggest heist in history. The Professor gathers eight highly skilled (and wildly entertaining) accomplices with nothing to lose, and all bets are off. This show is dangerous, fast-paced, surprisingly funny, and insanely addictive.

What the Flock is Saying: “Loved this show. Dark comedy/suspense and cannot stop singing bella ciao to this day.”

After watching Money Heist, binge Squid Game for another intense drama with questionable morals and high stakes.


Broadchurch is set in the small cliffside town of Dorset, where the body of 11-year-old Danny Latimer is found on the beach. Detective Sgt. Ellie Miller (Olivia Coleman) is joined by out-of-town Detective Inspector Alec Hardy (David Tennant) as they try to uncover what secrets the seemingly-idyllic town is hiding. The people of Dorset are gruff, hardworking, and suspicious of people poking about their business. Broadchurch will keep you watching with its incredible build and heartbreaking twists. Not the most uplifting show, but it really is remarkably good.

What the Flock is Saying: “Just finished season three. I loved this show and could listen to David Tennant’s accent all day.”

After watching Broadchurch, check out Unbelievable for another laser-focused story on uncovering the truth.

Abbott Elementary

Well-written comedy? Okay, we’re listening! Abbott Elementary is a truly delightful, fresh sitcom about teachers in an under-funded Philadelphia public school. It’s grounded, poignant, surprising, and it’s on cable! What?! (It’s also on Hulu.) Writer/creator Quinta Brunson leads this superb cast as they navigate parent-teacher conferences, art projects horrors, and a principal who might make you lose faith in the educational system as a whole. But in a fun way!

What the Flock is Saying: “This show is amazing! I had my doubts because it’s technically a network sitcom, but I can’t stop watching (and neither can my friends)”

If you liked Abbott Elementary, binge Parks and Recreation for another workplace comedy about underfunded government employees doing their best.
