This has been defined as the era of peak television. In the last few years, there has been an introduction of new and engaging TV shows by various networks and the introduction of online streaming services like Netflix have also added some variety to the mix.
Moreover, some excellent TV packages have also been offered to the public to enable them to watch their favorite shows without any disruptions. Even though there is an endless list of options available when you wish to watch a TV show, you should pick an interesting one that keeps you glued to your TV. Here are some great options at your disposal:
One of the hidden gems of 2016 is the heartfelt and deeply warped British black comedy, which is completely different from anything else on television. Even though it is a one-woman play, Phoebe Waller-Bridge does an excellent job at playing the role of an impulsive and sardonic young woman who is navigating life in London. She narrates her exploits bluntly to the camera and also deals with profound pain.
There had been rumors about troubled production regarding HBO’s adaptation of this robots-gone-rogue franchise, but the show came out with flying colors. It is an intricate, spectacular and rewarding journey, even though it has some familiar aspects in the form of grizzled gunmen, fractured timelines and robots becoming self-aware. The show has pulled off some genuine surprises even in this age when keeping anything hidden is tough. It is a must-watch if you want to see an interesting TV show, especially when you have HD channels.
3. Better Call Sault
In its first season, the show succeeded in stepping out of Breaking Bad’s shadow and established itself as a sharply-written and rich show in its own right. The second run was just as fun as it took the characters and relationships to unpredictable and thrilling ends. The story was as gripping as ever and the production and writing was undeniably exemplary.
4. Game of Thrones
It is an unspoken rule that shows don’t get better after finishing their fifth season, but the rules don’t apply to Game of Thrones. The sixth season of the show turned out to be its best, even though it was working without the structure of George R.R. Martin’s novels this time around. The story was just as fascinating and the episodes were quite spectacular as they were more about the emotional payoffs from the previous seasons. You are going to be addicted with the way it is going and only 13 episodes left.
5. Orange is the New Black
The problem with Orange is the New Black was that it was difficult to put it in a specific category; sometimes it fell into drama and sometimes it was more a comedy. However, after a remarkable yet brutal fourth season, the show has secured its place in the comedy category. Each and every one of the inmates went through their darkest hour and the season culminated in a death that was undoubtedly heart wrenching.
2016 was the election year and the black-hearted political satire called Veep was perfectly suited for it. Season 5 bounced back easily, even though there was a change in showrunners. The dialogue was acerbic and sharp as ever and the characters remained as mesmerizing as ever. We learned more about Selina and her monstrousness and the episode in which her mother died was a masterpiece.
These are some of the great interesting TV shows that you can start watching once you have signed up for one of the many TV packages available.
