So…. Anyone else spend most of their time catching up on episodes or discovering new shows and binge watching them for days non-stop?
If the answer is no, then save yourself before you get sucked into a never ending black hole of tv shows.
And if your answer is yes, then hello my fellow tv show fanatics!
In this post I will be sharing the current shows that I’m watching (feel free to comment below/mention me on twitter what you’re currently watching and what you recommend watching)
In no particular order, let’s start:
1- How To Get Away With Murder: (5 seasons)
This tv show consists of 4 finished seasons and currently on the 5th. It’s hard to explain the show without spoiling some of the story but I can tell you that it’s all about a particular lawyer (who happens to also be a professor) and certain law students who all get into very dark shit and it just gets worse from there.
It’s hard to get bored of this show because the story is written so well and the implementation of that writing from the cast especially, Viola Davis is fascinating. If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend you give it a chance. It is dark but it’s the kind of tv show that keeps you thinking and guessing and it definitely, keeps you on edge.
2- Star: (3 seasons)
So, this tv show is not everyone’s cup of tea and there’s not a lot hype around it BUT I like it. It’s about three young woman who are trying to make it as a girl group in the music industry, however, its not that simple because of what they dealt with in the past with family and also moving forward with their manager and the labels, etc…
What I love about the show is the mixture of drama and music but really its the cast is what made the show come alive. Those three ladies are enjoyable to watch but the main woman I love watching is Queen Latifa and she’s one of the main characters and the real star of the show in my personal opinion. I just hope the story gets better and more interesting but I think this season is going to be the best. Other than that, the show does touch a lot of important issues and generates conversations and I think it’s awesome that they do that.
3- Empire: (4 seasons)
Empire is the same universe of Star, however, this one started before Star and personally, I think it’s a bit better.
So, Empire is a company that started from scratch by a man and a woman who were in love, married with three kids and their love for music. But because of something that happened the wife/mother was forced to live 17 years without her husband or kids in prison for her husband to achieve his dreams and create his empire. The first episode takes place when that woman, Cookie Lyon finally gets released after 17 years and it all starts happening.
Cookie Lyon and Lucious Lyon are so well written characters and they are probably one of my favorite characters of all time. They are so enjoyable to watch because of how they are being portrayed by Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard. The development of those two characters and their relationship throughout the episodes is beautiful. Cookie obviously has such an amazing dynamic on screen thanks to Taraji and her one-liners are the best! It’s also a show that I don’t know if you’ll love but it’s worth checking out.
4- This is Us (3 seasons)
So, if you haven’t heard of this show, then you’re living under a rock.
This tv show has made most of its viewers around the world burst into tears after the end of each episode. Not in a bad way though. It’s just that the show is so good and well-written that it really hits you in the heart. Jack and Rebecca’s love story is so beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. The way that the story goes back and forth in time gives the show the ability to do whatever it really wants. There’s no limits to what they want to get into when it comes to their characters and I think this idea is innovative and when it collides with good writing, talented cast, and an amazing production you are guaranteed to have a hit show. This is a pure drama series that I didn’t think I’d get into and love it as much as I did so if you haven’t already given it a chance, then you should.
5- Supernatural (14 seasons)
So…. I LOVE SUPERNATURAL SO MUCH AND I CANT BELIEVE ITS BEEN SO LONG SINCE I FIRST WATCHED IT BUT OMG I’LL NEVER BE ABLE TO STOP WATCHING IT.
Since that’s out of the way. As you already know by now, I’m a supernatural fan. The reason why I love this tv show is mainly because of the writing and the development of the storyline. I mean, it’s been on for 14 seasons, they are doing something right. Every season we get even deeper with the developments of those characters and the supernatural they keep fighting. It’s always unexpected, interesting and enjoyable to watch. I have to give props to the cast especially Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki because they deserve an Oscar for their incredible acting. I think when it comes to tv shows, actors are not given the same amount of appreciation for what they portray on television but I believe they should because what Jensen and Jared have been doing for the past 14 seasons is beyond amazing to me. So, you’ll definitely will love the chemistry between the cast members on and off the screen.
However, I know 14 seasons is a lot but if you have ever enjoyed any supernaturals shows before and love a little bit of scare from now and then, you’d enjoy this show especially the early seasons.
6- The good Doctor (2 seasons)
This show is about a young surgeon resident who is autistic. The beauty of this show comes from the main character, Shaun. He’s heartwarming to watch. It’s amazing and interesting to see how this character has to deal with everything and learn how to develop some skills to survive in this environment. Not only him though, but every character has a beautiful story and it keeps getting better. It’s one of those shows that will always leave you feeling happy after watching it. Also, if you love ‘the doctors lives in the hospital’ kind of tv shows you’ll appreciate this one.
7- Chilling adventures of Sabrina (1 season)
Okay, so I had to add this tv show into this list because even though I already finished it, maybe you haven’t seen it yet.
It’s a Netflix series that is kind of a remake of Sabrina the teenage witch with a horror twist on it. It’s based on the comics with the same name and it’s set in the same universe as Riverdale. So… you can see where this is going.
The show itself, is about Sabrina who’s a half witch and half mortal, orphaned and being taken care of two of her aunties and her cousin. The young witch/mortal struggles with her secret that she is hiding from her boyfriend Harvey and her two best friends and also struggling with her decision to join the coven.
It’s a dark version of Sabrina the teenage witch but it’s unexpectedly really good. I had low exceptions when I heard of this and I didn’t know if I’d like it but I really did. The cast, the writing, the production are all very good. It’s not the show for everyone but give it a try if you like dark side of witches, teenagers, and a little bit of jump scares here and there.
8- Charmed (1 season)
No I’m not talking about charmed the three witches that was back in 1997-2006. I’m talking about the new remake by the CW.
I was going in to be such a hard critic on it but left the first episode wanting more. It’s good so far. I cannot judge on only three episodes but I like the characters and I like magic and I like where the story is going and I’m interested to see how the show develops through out the season.
9- Legacies (1 seasons)
If you have watched the vampire diaries and the originals then you’d know what this tv show is about. This is another spin off from those universes and I’m not mad at it.
I don’t want to get into explaining the characters because a lot of them have a rich history but you can google it because I think there are websites dedicated to explain those characters. However, to explain this show is to simply say that, there’s this school that was created to help young supernatural creatures (witches, vampires, werewolves, etc) to help them control their powers and learn more about this supernatural world to prep them to be more in control of everything they will have to deal with. Humans don’t know about this school or the whole supernatural creatures thing and of course thats the way they want it to be.
Theres 2 episodes out so far, and I liked it. I think the whole launch of the vampire diaries, then the originals and now this one is just proof that if you do good writing in creating a show that creates this loyal fanbase, it could be expanded and becomes this universe on its own.
10- The X-factor UK
This is not a series tv show kind of thing, it’s more as a reality singing competition kind of thing. I watch X factor from time to time but this season is quite a season. So many talented people who are different and bring a fresh air to the show and so I started to watch it again and I have four main favorites so far. Misunderstood, Brendon, Giovanni and of course Scarlet.
I like watching competitions and so this is currently one of my favorites.
So that’s it. there some tv shows that I didn’t mention but those were the 10 that I have on my mind. Let me know what kind of shows you like watching or your top fav shows either in the comments below or mention me on Twitter @inthemoment_96
