10 New TV Shows You Should Start Watching Immediately
You’ve done Breaking Bad, Orange Is The New Black and House of Cards. What next?
Fortitude is a city situated in the Arctic Circle and is famously known for its high degree of safety. It suddenly changes when a horrible crime is committed, creating an atmosphere of fear and suspicion in the small community. This British thriller brilliantly plays with the Nordic Noir codes to offer a quality drama. If you enjoyed The Killing or The Bridge, then you will not be disappointed by Fortitude.
Olivia (Rose McIver) is a zombie but she is radically different from those appearing in The Walking Dead. Indeed, Olivia is pretty well-integrated amongst humans. She has a job which allows her to easily have access to her favourite food: brains, and she uses her superpowers to help the police. Directed by the creators of Veronica Mars, this TV series will surely change your opinion about zombies.
3. Agent Carter
If you like Captain America or if you are a Marvel lover, then Agent Carter is made for you. The TV series tells the story of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), who, in 1942, starts leading secret mission for Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), whilst working as a secretary for the Strategic Scientific Reserve. The bad ass female lead will make you an addict to this new televisual production.
Welcome in the family drama of the year. The Lyon family is at the head of a powerful hip hop company called Empire Enterprises. Their success in the music industry could unite members of this powerful family, however, they all spend their time fighting against each other to control the empire. If you like Terrence Howard, Naomi Campbell, Courtney Love and Raven Symoné, then you should definitely watch Empire.
This TV series is a medieval musical parody following the adventures of Galavant (Joshua Sasse), a knight who decides to save his true love, Madalena (Mallory Jansen) from the perfidious King Richard (Timothy Omundson). Mixing fairy tales with musical performances, Galavant is quite different from anything else and feels like an uncommon experience which will definitely amuse you. If you want to listen to some catchy music or see drunk knights ridiculously confronting each other, then the first season of Galavant is waiting for you.
6. The Slap
Adapted from an eponymous Australian TV series, The Slap shows how a family can fall down because of an incident involving a child getting slapped by an adult. The miniseries, with each episode centered on one character, thoroughly challenges viewers by dangerously moving the barriers of morality and offering a complex reality. Also, The Slap sees the return of Zachary Quinto to television, which gives you another reason to watch this series.
Brett (Mark Duplass) and Michelle (Melanie Lynskey) are married and go through a serious couple crisis. Michelle’s sister, Tina (Amanda Peet) has been dumped by her boyfriend and dangerously becomes close to Brett’s friend, Alex (Steve Zissis).
