6.) Sherlock Holmes (2010)
Status : Ongoing
Sherlock is a crime drama television series based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle‘s Sherlock Holmes detective stories. Created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, it stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Doctor John Watson. Thirteen episodes have been produced, with three-part series airing from 2010–2017, and a special episode that aired on 1 January 2016. The series is set in the present day, while the one-off special features a Victorian period fantasy resembling the original Holmes stories. Sherlock is a co-production of the British network BBC and the American station WGBH Boston for its Masterpiece anthology series on PBS, along with Hartswood Films, with Moffat, Gatiss, Sue Vertue and Rebecca Eaton serving as executive producers. The series is primarily filmed in Cardiff, Wales, with North Gower Street in London used for exterior shots of Holmes and Watson’s 221B Baker Street residence.
If you’re into crime solving, mystery, suspense thriller, sarcasm, wit, light & dark humour Sherlock Holmes will surely be one of your favorite! Each episode has a movie/film length, which you’ll surely enjoy because there is only about 3 or 4 episodes each season with special episodes in between of the seasons.
7.) Game of Thrones (2011)
Status : Ongoing
Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin‘s series of fantasy novels, the first of which is A Game of Thrones. It is filmed in Belfast and elsewhere in the United Kingdom, Canada, Croatia, Iceland, Malta, Morocco, Spain, and the United States. The series premiered on HBO in the United States on April 17, 2011.
Set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, Game of Thrones has several plot lines and a large ensemble cast but centers on three primary story arcs. The first story arc centers on the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms and follows a web of alliances and conflicts among the dynastic noble families either vying to claim the throne or fighting for independence from the throne. The second story arc focuses on the last descendant of the realm’s deposed ruling dynasty, exiled and plotting a return to the throne. The third story arc centers on the longstanding brotherhood charged with defending the realm against the ancient threats of the fierce peoples and legendary creatures that lie far north, and an impending winter that threatens the realm.
Never knew I’d get hooked on this one because there are too many characters to remember at first and it could get so confusing, but once you have the grasp of the story, you’d really like it and will keep asking for more!
8.) Stranger Things (2016)
Status : Ongoing
Stranger Things is an American science fiction–horror web television series created, written, directed and co-executive produced by the Duffer Brothers, as well as co-executive-produced by Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen. The first season stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono, and Matthew Modine, with Noah Schnapp and Joe Keeryin recurring roles. The second season will see Schnapp and Keery promoted to series regulars, along with the addition of Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery.
Set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana in the 1980s, the first season focuses on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy amid supernatural events occurring around the town including the appearance of a psychokinetic girl who helps the missing boy’s friends in their own search. The second season is set a year after the first, and deals with attempts of the characters to return to normal and consequences from that season.
The Duffer Brothers developed the series as a mix of investigative drama alongside supernatural elements with childlike sensibilities, establishing its time frame in the 1980s and creating a homage to pop culture of that decade. Several themes and directorial aspects were inspired and aesthetically informed by the works of Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter, and Stephen King.
9.) Thirteen Reasons Why (2017)
Status : Ongoing
13 Reasons Why (stylized onscreen as Th1rteen R3asons Why) is an American drama-mystery web television series based on the 2007 novel Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher and adapted by Brian Yorkey for Netflix. The series revolves around a high school student, Clay Jensen, and his friend Hannah Baker, a girl who committed suicide after suffering a series of demoralizing circumstances brought on by select individuals at her school. A box of cassette tapes recorded by Hannah before her suicide details thirteen reasons why she ended her life.
I only knew of this series when memes started to flood facebook with Hannah’s face and lines, plus the boys on the show. I wanted to know what the hype with it was all about and so I did a marathon and for me the storytelling was good, it would make you realize that there’s really more to everything, and that every story has different sides.
10.) American Horror Story (2011)
Status : Ongoing
American Horror Story is an American anthology horror series created and produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Described as an anthology series, each season is conceived as a self-contained miniseries, following a different set of characters and settings, and a storyline with its own “beginning, middle, and end.” Some plot elements of each season are loosely inspired by true events. The only actors to appear in all iterations of the show so far are Evan Peters, Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson.
Being a horror fan, I just wanted to say that I love all of their seasons and if you’re also into horror, this is a must watch!
Before I finish this article I just wanted to say how important communication is and that everybody should be able to communicate all around the world but we can’t do that if we don’t speak the same languages. Did you learn a foreign language in school? Can you speak it fluently? Don’t let those years and money spent be a waste! You can “Speak Any Language Instantly” and it’s free. Everybody in the world speaks on of 15 languages. And I give you all 15 languages, for free! After finishing reading my article, please visit http://www.AnaEzine.webs.combecause this 3-minute program will make you fluent and scientist research has shown that speaking a second language fluently will increase the size of the brain, make it disease resistant, and slow down aging so that you live longer and have a quicker mind and more productive life! Now back to my article..
