If you have been following my blog since the beginning or if you really know me, you know that I love watching (and binge-watching) TV series. If you don’t know, now you do! If I have a free time, the thing I would is watch a series.
I watch a lot of TV shows (and I mean a LOT! I’m not exaggerating) and I want to share you my top 5. It’s so hard to narrow it to only 5 because all of the series are really good but here we are Here are my top 5 TV shows!
Game of Thrones is obviously my first choice. This show is the adaptation of George R.R Martin’s book series “Song of Ice and Fire” where families of monarchs and elites fight a deadly game (hence Game of Thrones) for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros and sit on the Iron Throne.
This show is one of the best out there. It has a very compelling story! Come on, royalties fighting to control the Seven Kingdoms while having dragons and ice zombies threaten the whole kingdom, don’t tell me it’s very awesome. Not only that, this show has a powerful cast – Lena Heady (Cersei), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) and Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) to name a few.
Legion, based on the Marvel comics, tells the story of David who thought he has schizophrenia all along, until he mets Syd. He gets involved with Melanie Bird who shows him that he has powers.
Another great TV show! The story isn’t some typical superhero story where there’s a big bad and it depends on the hero to stop the villain. It provides a fresh take on the hero story. This show also portrays the psychological aspect (as David is a telepath and he has “another personality”, you’ll see what I mean if you watch the show!) in an amazing way using lighting and technical aspects to display the mood. The cast is amazing too -Dan Stevens as David, Aubrey Plaza as Lenny and Rachel Keller as Syd.
Netflix’s Jessica Jones tells a darker and mysterious story of Jessica Jones, an ex-superhero turned private investigator, who suffers PTSD after a tragedy. She wants to do good but her priority is her apartment and getting through each rather than the safety of the world.
Just like Legion, this provides a fresh take on the hero story with a dark and mysterious story which I LOVE. This is something new for Marvel and it’s a risk but it pays. It’s also dark (I love stories that are dark) because it adds more flare to the story. Just like Legion, Jessica Jones also has a psychological aspect which they portray well.
Another Netflix show, Daredevil shows the story of Matt Murdock, lawyer at day and vigilante by night. Blinded by a mysterious chemical in a childhood accident, the chemical gave him heightened senses which he use to fight crime in Hell’s Kitchen.
Even though this superhero TV show isn’t something like Legion, it’s still an amazing TV show. What I appreciate is that the story is immersive and the characters are very well developed which makes you feel connected to the character.
97 years ago, a nuclear Armageddon destroyed civilization and the only survivors are on the Ark, 12 international spaceships unified together with 4000 people after three generations. As the Ark’s supplies dwindles, the leaders dropped 100 juvenile criminals on Earth. The 100 later finds out that people, called Grounders, have survived the nuclear Armageddon over the centuries.
I recently just finished its season 4 and it’s amazing. One thing I really like about The 100 is that every season has a very interesting story arc, from Mount Weather (season 2) to Praimfaya or a radiation wave (season 4), which keeps you engaged and immersed in the show. They also has very well developed characters with different amazing internal conflicts.
So, that’s my Top 5 TV series. I hope you enjoyed this post and tell me, what’s your favorite TV shows and do you have any recommendations? See you soon, bye!
