TV has changed a lot over the past 15 years. Shows are different, how we watch TV is different. 15 years ago, bingeing wasn’t a thing; very few shows had a real storyline, and the budget of prime time TV shows in general was quite low. There was HBO of course, but series like The Wire were the exception, not the norm. And then things changed. A few shows are directly responsible for making serialized TV series a thing. I think my generation will always remember Lost and 24, 2 of the first big shows that introduced us to good storytelling on TV. I personally became addicted to TV with 2 other shows: Heroes and Prison Break. I got hooked to TV with those 2 shows. And now, after 7 years, Prison Break is back!
I watch a lot of TV shows; 113 days worth of it, according to Trakt.tv. But I’ve never told you about Band of Brothers before. Let’s fix that today!
Have you watched The Americans? Somehow this series stayed under my radar in the past 3 years. I guess there are just too many good shows on TV these days, and not just on major networks anymore.
If you haven’t started watching it yet, I’d recommend watching it soon; you’ll love it.
Did you like Marvel’s Daredevil, season 1 and 2? You probably watched Jessica Jones as well, where we got to know Luke Cage and discovered that all 3 characters lived in the same city and would maybe make a good team.
Well, that’s happening! Make note, as there are 3 more series coming up on Netflix for you:
Marvel’s Luke Cage
Marvel’s Iron Fist
A new hero joins the team! I’m so waiting for that one. It has a nice mystical feeling to it, a la Doctor Strange. And, you know, Kung Fu! :)
Marvel’s The Defenders
And finally, the whole team coming together!
To this day, Breaking Bad still is one of my favourite TV Shows. The story, the photography, the characters, the soundtrack, … That show brought TV Shows to a new level. I was thrilled when I learned that one of the characters, Saul Goodman, would get his own show, created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, who also worked on Breaking Bad.
I’m a big Stephen King fan, and although I don’t usually enjoy James Franco I’m really looking forward to this new show! It’s only 9 episodes, so they won’t be tempted to go off book and the end result shouldn’t be as bad as Under The Dome.
If you haven’t read the book, do it now! It’s a good one
And since we’re talking TV series, I must point out (again) that this is NOT how you release a new TV show / product:
- Hulu is only available in the US.
- All their communications mention that the show will be premiering “on President’s Day 2016”. Now a lot of you all are probably a lot smarter than me, but I don’t really enjoy having to google “President’s Day 2016” to find out when the show will actually be available (I’ll save you the trouble, it’s February 15, 2016).
Did you enjoy Marvel’s Daredevil? You might be interested in Marvel’s Jessica Jones!
This new show seems to be as dark as Daredevil, and since it’s on Netflix I can binge watch it and be done with it quickly. Perfect ?
I found myself enjoying Arrow a lot more than I expected. The first season wasn’t great, and the acting is still not perfect, but the show has come a long way, I think.
And let’s face it, the new Flash looks way better than the Flash I used to watch when I was a kid :)
