In my blog post Best Movies, I made a list but since I won’t be talking about as many TV series I’m not going to just do a list of good TV series but I will talk and write a little review about every single one. It’s not going to be a summary but actually a review and that’s why I linked the Wikipedia page of every series, there you can read a summary.
Since watching a TV series is much more commitment than watching a movie, I think reviews are appropriate and a better way of showing you guys my favourite TV series and why I love / watch them. Enjoy!
AMERICAN CRIME STORY
American Crime Story is like American Horror Story but, as the name already gives away, it’s not a horror series but a crime series. Just like American Horror Story, each season is different. The past and first season was about the case of O.J Simpson, the next one will be about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Everything’s based on true stories and I think that’s also part of why this series has become so popular already, even though only one season is out. I enjoy watching American Crime Story, it’s really as good as everyone says it is.
Empire is a series that I’ve loved ever since the pilot came out. It’s about music, family, the streets and drama. It’s not only entertaining but the music they create is very good as well. There really is a lot of drama but it’s not repetitive or boring, it’s good drama and the writers have been doing a great job. The storyline contains plot twist after plot twist.
Scorpion is called a action drama TV series but it has much less drama than Empire. It’s more about the action part whereas by action isn’t meant the typical fighting scenes etc. but more ‘normal’ action. I can’t really describe it but this show is really something different. It’s nothing like the other TV series I watch but it’s very good and I recommend it.
HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER
Every episode of this series is very exciting and gripping. The plot is written so well. You never know what happens next and that’s what makes it great. I’m also in love with the characters, they’re all different, yet fit together so perfectly. This is another TV series I highly recommend.
White Collar is probably my favourite series I have watched so far. The main theme is not very original but White Collar is, it’s so good that I actually watched the whole series twice. I love the characters, the plot, and just everything about this series. Even though it might not be very original, the whole storyline throughout all of the six seasons is really thrilling and exciting. I’m not sure I’ve felt this many emotions because of a series before. You should definitely watch this one.
PRETTY LITTLE LIARS
This series is really all about mystery and drama. What I like most about Pretty Little Liars are the characters. They’re all very different and have their own story. Even though I must say some parts of the whole series are repetitive, it’s still a entertaining show, so before you believe anything negative about it, I suggest you watch it yourself first.
I have been watching Criminal Minds for years now and I can honestly say that there’s not a single episode that was boring or I didn’t like. Criminal Minds is a series that you don’t have to watch all previous episodes of to understand it but the characters do have a history together, therefore I recommend you start at the beginning. I know eleven seasons is a lot but if you have time, it’s really worth it. This has to be one of my favourite series ever.
Just like Criminal Minds, I had been watching Castle for years. It’s a really exceptional TV series. It’s never boring but lively. The whole storyline never seems made up, as in you don’t realise that it’s fake since it doesn’t have too much drama or it’s too funny, if you know what I mean. And you actually fall in love with the characters throughout all of the eight seasons. And it’s worth watching the whole eight seasons of Castle.
I am pretty sure you have heard of Friends before, it’s a classic. I originally started watching Friends because my friend asked me to and I’ve always wanted to watch it anyways, so I did and at first I didn’t really like it but after a couple of episodes you get really into it. Now I really enjoy watching Friends.
THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR
This one’s another classic. I actually enjoy this series a little bit more than Friends but I don’t know why. It’s a funny series and really entertaining. It’s something you can watch when you’re on your phone or doing chores, it doesn’t need that much attention, it’s easy to watch if you know what I mean. Same thing goes for Friends.
Hope you enjoyed this post! Have a great week x
