    With Emmy season officially kicking into gear, I’ve been compiling a list of my favorite shows of the past Emmy season. There are plenty of usual suspects you’d expect to be on such a list, ie “Stranger Things, “Westworld,” “This is Us.” There’s one show high up on my list, though, that seemingly nobody has even heard of: “Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street.” The series has likely eluded you because A) it’s on Amazon, B) it’s a quote unquote “kids show,” and C) it only lasted two seasons. As somebody that recently discovered this hidden gem, though, I can safely say that it’s one of the most creative, charming, and meaningful coming of age stories of recent years. The show peaked in quality with its final 13 episodes and nothing would make me happier than to see the series finale, “Gortimer vs. the End,” get nominated somewhere at the Emmys. Since it can’t even seem to break into Outstanding Children’s Program, though, it’s highly unlikely we’ll see it in Writing or Directing for a Comedy Series. So all I can say is that if you have an Amazon Prime account, do yourself a favor and check it out!
