It’s hard to pick just 5 as I could probably list a lot more great shows to watch, so from madness to murder, here we go!
1. Jessica Jones
I must admit, despite not watching this myself yet, I’ve only seen good reviews about this. It’s about time Marvel started putting their women forward and giving them some decent air time. I’m glad it didn’t stop at Agent Carter because now we have two women who fully kick ass in two different eras. Jones is incredibly special as she suffers from real life problems which connect her to the audience on a more personal level. Filled with action, drama and suspense, you wouldn’t want to miss out.
Another Marvel gem, Daredevil gets you hooked instantly. From witty banter to epic fight scenes; it’s a show that deserves all the credit. It’s already in motion for Season 2 so you better hurry up and watch it, and what’s good is that you can binge it in no time and be ready for the next season! The characters are not just super, but they’re real, much like Jones.
3. Orange is the New Black
This has got to be one of my favourite TV shows ever. I saw it floating around a website a couple of years ago and decided to give it a try and I don’t regret it one bit. It’s absolutely hilarious, heart-breaking and at times, downright nasty. Following the lives of women in a state prison, all have their own stories, lives and opinions. It’s a great show to just splurge on, and I’d definitely recommend grabbing a few snacks beforehand, because you’re not going to leave your seat for anything.
I started watching this last year and it’s a great show to watch in terms of becoming a part of these character’s lives who derive from different cultures all around the world. These 8 strangers all seem to come together after witnessing a tragic accident which leaves them mentally and emotionally connected. It taps into the psychological side of life but also deals with personal problems, sexuality and friendship. The writing is excellent, and the filming itself is spectacular. Definitely give it a go!
5. Better Call Saul
Having not previously watched Breaking Bad, it seems to be a show that crops up everywhere I go, which might be a sign telling me to finally sit down and watch it. Better Call Saul is a prequel to this and portrays the life of a lawyer 6 years previous to his presence in Breaking Bad.It’s a show that essentially deals with the underdog as he slowly makes his way up in the world, and sooner rather than later, you start to find yourself rooting for the little man.
