From Westworld to Marvel’s Luke Cage, if you love watching awesome series, you should definetly check out these 8 shows you should be watching right now if you didn’t already. 🙂
This show is incredible, and it’s only four episodes in. It seamlessly combines both the Sci-Fi and Western genre by focusing the story around a futuristic theme-park inhabited by artificial beings. The show also boasts a great ensemble cast with familiar faces in Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris, whilst also reflecting the quality of other HBO programs like ‘Game of Thrones’. If there is one show you check out on this list, make it this one.
Donald Glover is a talented individual. He has shown this over a number of different mediums, including television, but never like this. Not only did he create and write this hilarious, real-world take on the Atlanta rap scene, but he also stars in the damn thing. It’s a grounded, comedic and unique show that definitely deserves your attention.
Son of Zorn
This show is simply good fun. It isn’t going to be groundbreaking, but it is still hilarious to see an animated Barbarian (Voiced by Jason Sudeikis) try and reconnect with his non-cartoon teenage son. This interesting premise creates enough laughs and humour to keep you around and is worth a watch simply for the office wars and the lava guns.
A catastrophic attack on the White House kills everyone in a presidential line of succession, leaving a low-level cabinet member (played by Kiefer Sutherland) as the President of the United States. A compelling drama that breathes new light into the political thriller genre, this one is still only a few episodes in and worth catching up on.
The Good Place
It’s hard to find an original comedy sitcom these days, but the creators of ‘Parks and Recreation’ don’t seem to be short of ideas if their latest project, ‘The Good Place’, suggests anything. Kristin Bell’s character is essentially sent to a ‘heaven-like’ place even though she has no right to be there and attempts to be a better person to fit in with everyone else. A show that delivers on it’s concept, whilst also providing plenty of laughs, ‘The Good Place’ is one of the most refreshing comedy shows in years.
An anthology series similar to ‘The Twilight Zone’, ‘Black Mirror’ is a thrilling piece of television that uses it’s self-contained episodes to comment on the excessive amounts of technology within our lives. From high concept, future dystopias to real world blackmailing, this show is both horrifying, compelling and definitely worth your attention. Although the show has been running for a number of years, Netflix just released six new episodes, which can be watched in any order due to the narrative structure of the show. If you are interested in getting into the show, I would start with ‘The Entire History of You’ from Season 1 or ‘San Janipero’ from the brand new Season 3.
American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare
I know many of you may have given up on this series and I honestly don’t blame you, AHS hasn’t been good since Asylum (Season 2). However, this latest addition to the anthology show has changed the structure of the show completely, making for more horror and a lot more compelling viewing. Even if you have never seen the show, season 6 is a great place to start, especially considering that the latest episode has now got the highest IMDB rating (9.3) in the history of the show.
Marvel’s Luke Cage
This show is an action-packed blast. Although it has been getting little bit of criticism lately when compared to other Netflix originals, I still think the show has a heap of potential and is definitely worth your time. I mean, just the concept of a man getting super strength, escaping from prison and becoming a superhero for hire had me hooked, let alone the episodes themselves.
Thaks to ThatVillianDylan for the awesome post! 🙂
