I haven’t watched every good series yet, so my list is most certainly not complete. The following series are just the ones I have watched so far and which I really liked. I hope you like them too ;)

1. Sense8

Eight strangers from different parts of the world suddenly become mentally and emotionally connected. The show also explores subjects such as politics, sexuality, identity, gender and religion.
For me personally, “Sense8” is one of the best series of all time!

2. Sherlock

Modern reprise of the famous “Sherlock Holmes” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In every episode, Sherlock and his assistant Watson face a new case. Funny, absorbing and absolutely genius!

3. Orange is the New Black

The series revolves around Piper Chapman who is sentenced to 15 months in a minimum-security prison for women. The show focuses on subjects often kept quiet about, such as corruption and guard brutality, but also general topics like racism and sexuality.

4. Friends

“Friends” is a television sitcom from the 90’s which revolves around six friends living in Manhattan. An absolute classic and perfect if you want a good laugh.

5. 13 Reasons Why

Clay Jensen receives a box with 13 cassette tapes, recorded by his friend Hannah Baker before her suicide. Every cassette is dedicated to one of the thirteen people responsible for her death. Very touching and thought-provoking.

6. The 100

The series is set 97 years after a nuclear apocalypse which wiped out almost all life on earth. Only a group of 2400 people survived. After their station in the Earth’s orbit is found to be failing, a hundred juvenile prisoners are sent back home in order to determine whether the Earth is habitable or not. What they find is not what they initially expected...

7. Pretty Little Liars

“Pretty Little Liars” follows the life of five girls, whose clique falls apart after the leader, Alison, goes missing. One year later, they receive messages sent by “A”, who threatens the four friends and reveals their deepest secrets.

8. Reign

Set in 1557, “Reign” follows the life of Mary, Queen of Scots, at the French court, where she is awaiting her marriage to the future King of France. Mary is confronted with power plays and changing politics, as well as her own emotions. The appeal of this series lies in the historic background of Mary Stuart, but also in breathtaking sceneries and beautiful costumes (and people…)

9. Orphan Black

“Orphan Black” is a science-fiction thriller series which focuses on Sarah Manning: one day, she discovers that she is one of many clones which look exactly like herself. The show deals with the implications of human cloning and its effect on personal identity. Especially fascinating is the fact that every clone character is played by the same actress.

10. The OA

A mystery drama in which a young woman named Prairie resurfaces after having been missed for seven years. She now calls herself “The OA” and can suddenly see, despite having been blind before her disappearance. Somehow disturbing, but you have to keep watching anyway.

Series I haven’t watched yet but was told they were really good: Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, House of Cards, Marco Polo, Mad Men, Outlander, How to Get Away with Murder
