With Game Of Thrones not set to release till late 2019, this winter is turning out to be a really long one. Thankfully, there are many more shows to fill the waiting period! Here is a list of some shows that you can binge watch right now before inevitably re-watching GOT for the seventh time.
A sci-fi drama set in an Old Wild West America, the show features a theme park where the hosts are human-like androids. The guests in the park are presented with scenarios that are developed and created by the park’s creative department and are as unforgettable as they are thrilling. The show explores what it means to be a human in its own weird and deeply enthralling way.
A historical show based on the Norse mythology, Vikings is a must see for all. While the show may stray from historical facts at times, the captivating storyline is sure to keep you hooked and on the edge of your seats. The show, apart from being gripping and unpredictable, stars actors who have done commendable work in portraying their characters. If you need one more reason to watch the show, I’ll just name Travis Fimmel aka our unstoppable and extremely charismatic King, Ragnar Lothbrok.
Based on the award-winning play “The Audience”, this British historical drama tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II, portrayed by a brilliant Claire Foy. The show spans the entire life of Queen Elizabeth from the moment she ascended the Thorne at 25 years of age. Political rivalry, personal acts of vengeance and beautiful romances guide the show and spin a tale worth remembering. The gripping storyline is capped by the brilliant acting and the meticulous portrayal of events and characters. The show is often praised for its historical accuracy, revealing secrets and tales not written in textbooks.
The journey of Walter White from a protagonist to an antagonist is a gripping tale with a very satisfying ending. There’s drama, thrill, emotion and enough suspense to keep you hooked till the end. The characters are written in a way that will sometimes make you despise their actions, while at other times, you can’t help but sympathize with them. The screenplay divulges deep into every character without labelling any as “good” or “bad” and tells the tale of perfectly flawed humans.
This is one of those rare shows that truly does justice to the books from which it’s adopted. This fantasy/mythological show has great visuals and a captivating storyline, which makes for an entertaining watch. With a clever and often whimsical storyline, the show may be confusing at times, but that’s what makes it so intriguing. As this type of story is quite unconventional, the show is not quite as appreciated as it should be. But with such interesting characters and a well-crafted storyline, it’s an amazing visual escape along with being at times intelligently confounding and murky and I stress the intelligently part of that.
So what are you waiting for? Grab some popcorn, settle into a cosy corner and binge your way through these masterpieces this weekend. Happy Watching!
