So many shows, it’s hard to choose what to watch
Are you all caught up on your shows and looking for the next binge-worthy endeavor? From comedies to dramas there are way too many shows to choose from. That is where this handy, dandy quick review comes in.
All these shows are binge-worthy and will prove to be your next addiction.
“Lucifer” is a crime drama set in Los Angeles. What sets “Lucifer” apart from other crime dramas is that the main character, played by the very charismatic Tom Ellis, is the actual devil.
After ruling hell for an eternity, he decides to take a vacation to Los Angeles and refuses to ever return to Hell. What follows is four seasons (with a fifth and final on the way) filled with hijinks and mayhem.
The show explores both typical crime drama tropes as well as more spiritual and divine elements. From angels and demons to serial killers this show has it all.
You will be charmed and will not want to stop watching this fun ride. All current seasons can be found on Netflix, as the company picked up the show to produce fourth and fifth seasons.
“Good Omens” is another show that explores the divine. This one, however, tells the tale of the end of the world in a fun quirky world.
Starring David Tennant as loose-living demon Crowley and Michael Sheen as the fussy angel Aziraphale. Together they form an unlikely alliance to try and stop the end of the world but to do that they must find the antichrist who has gone missing.
You’ll laugh and cry in this quirky six-episode long miniseries. The entire show can be found on Amazon Prime Video since it is an Amazon original.
‘The Good Place’
Who doesn’t love half-hour comedies about the afterlife? That’s right, it’s another show that explores the divine and spiritual.
The show stars Kristen Bell as Eleanor Shellstrop. She winds up in “The Good Place” only to realize there was a mistake.
She must hide in plain sight from The Good Place architect Michael, played by Ted Danson, and his all-knowing assistant Janet, played by D’Arcy Carden.
Eleanor becomes determined to stay in The Good Place and what follows is a hilarious ride. Currently three seasons with the fourth and final season coming soon you’ll love every second of it.
Every season can be found on Netflix. Go check it out you won’t regret it.
A little different show from the other three but probably one of the best. ‘Euphoria’ stars Zendaya as Rue, a teenager attempting to recover from a drug addiction and Hunter Schafer as Jules, a teenager just trying to find her place in the world
Surrounding Rue is a great cast of different and unique characters. Each actor brings an amazing performance to the show that cannot be overlooked and deserves all the awards.
The visuals are amazing as well. Scenes are drowned out in beautiful lighting and cinematography. As well as an amazing soundtrack.
The show tackles some very heavy subjects like addiction and abuse. Don’t let that scare you away, because it is an amazing and powerful show.
Currently, only the eight-episode first season is available, with season two coming soon. It can be found on HBO and is definitely worth the watch.
Another drama but instead of teenagers, this one follows pirates at the end of the golden age of piracy. Serving as a prequel to “Treasure Island” this show does not disappoint.
The show follows Captain Flint, played by Toby Stephens, and his dastardly crew as they try to survive in a changing world. Blood will be shed, and people will die in this four-season long story.
The show lets you experience the world of pirates, albeit with a little Hollywood flair added in. Not entirely based in fiction either, as many real-world pirates make it into the story.
Four seasons with a satisfying conclusion can all be found on Hulu. I highly recommended you check this one out.
Those are only a couple of binge-worthy shows. There are so many more that you should check out.
Stay tuned for the next recommendation list. For now, however, check some of these out.
You may find your next favorite.
