It’s been 2 years since I first created the Best of TV series. Guess I forgot to list one last year since I’m so busy and stuff. So without further ado here it is, the top TV shows that I think are really awesome in the past year beginning with the 5 new series:
Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones is the TV adaption of A Song of Ice and Fire novel series by George R. R. Martin. The series is set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos where a bunch of medieval royal houses butcher each other in the quest for the Iron Throne. I don’t want to bore you with the story line but this multi-award winning show offers a fresh new perspective within the epic fantasy genre much like Lord of the rings but with more violence and nudity. Of course we all watch it for the captivating story line (wink-wink). Tyrion Lannister is probably everybody's favorite dwarf actor right now.
House of cards
White House fiction like The West Wing are a bore to watch for me but not House cards. Kevin Spacey’s played his character Frank Underwood really well. Viewers will be glued to their seat while watching how senator Underwood brings himself into power in the White House. It’s an American political drama series that’s actually interesting to watch.
Homeland an adaption of a novel about a former prisoner of war who was liberated and returns home as a national hero. Little that they know that Nicholas Brody has been turned by Al-Qaeda as their operative in the United States (hence Homeland). This show features a praying Brody drinks and fucks with women like a typical modern western Muslim.
Orange is the new black
This series tells of the memoir of a real live women convict of her experience in the prison. This show is funny, witty, eye-opening and especially rife with lesbian sex (not that we get to see anything much but boobs).
The series depicts the dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher, a single father of six children. While he spends his days drunk, his kids learn to take care of themselves. You can’t find a more loser and irresponsible father than Frank Gallagher. Be warned though this show features ample boobs and gay sex (although not really explicit).
I see a trend showing where Netflix starting to produce really cool dramas from their online streaming service. They know what the viewers want to watch. It's amazing how I can watch most of these TV series which are not even (or ever will) aired in the country straight from the Internet.
