My favourite spare time activity is grab some snacks(popcorn,chips,chocolates... i know, healthy, right?), tuck myself under my blanket and watch some intriguing shows which make you think 'how did i spend 3 hours in 1 minute?'.
These are shows that made me think that way and i never got tired of them. So if you feel like you dont have anything left to watch, tired of seeing Riverdale,Stranger Things,GoT everywhere as 'suggestions', or already aware of the shows that i'll be writing but not sure if they are worth your time, continue reading this!

Here we go.

1. OUTLANDER:

-Info:

  • Drama
  • Year: 2014
  • Finished?: No
  • Seasons: 3
  • Episodes: 42

-My Opinion:

This show has everything for you if you wanna watch something involves old tales of Scottish culture. Its also historical, romantic and very realistic. Im sure you'll feel as much confused, scared and in love as Claire did because i know i did. It really absorbs you into its universe i think.

2. SKAM:

-Info:

  • Drama

  • Finished?: Unfortunately, yes.
  • Seasons: 4
  • Episodes: 43

My Opinion:

Someone teleport me to that highscool as a teenager, i wanna be on a Russ group too! I know this show has become really popular and sometimes this might be a reason to not to watch something- at least for me it is. I just checked it out to see why people are freaking out about it so much and now even writing this article made me wanna rewatch it. You should give it a chance if you're looking for something to satisfy your drama, fun, friendship needs. It definetely helps.

3.CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND:

Info:

  • Comedy, Musical
  • Year: 2015
  • Finished?: No and i hope it never will be.
  • Seasons: 3
  • Episodes: 44

My Opinion:

Rachel Bloom, i love you and i want to thank you thousand times for creating something so funny yet realistic, accurate, sincere and different. Every woman on planet Earth needs to see this show. I guarantee you'll find so many things to relate in just one episode. I dont even know why this show is so underrated, i dont even find any other sitcom funny after watching this. Think about your favourite character from a sitcom, well everyone is as funny and sympathetic as him/her in this show. And did i mention it also has AMAZING music clips for some events happening in the story? If you're not sure about watching this show go and check these right now! :

4. MR. ROBOT:

Follows Elliot, a young programmer working as a cyber-security engineer by day, and a vigilante hacker by night.

Info:

  • Crime
  • Year: 2015
  • Finished?: Nope
  • Seasons:3
  • Episodes: 32

My Opinion:

I think this show has an amazing story and plot twists now and then also some cinematographic depth unlike many shows out there. Yeah scenes tell us how the story goes but when you study those scenes as photographs, puzzles need to be solved you find out the secret meaning buried beneath. Like, you are seeing two people talking but who is in charge? Figure it out by camera's angle. Still two people talking, but theres also a computer so maybe its three people?

5.SENSE8:

A group of people around the world are suddenly linked mentally, and must find a way to survive being hunted by those who see them as a threat to the world's order.

Info:

  • Drama, Sci-Fi
  • Year: 2015
  • Finished?: Will make a finale with a 2 hour long episode. Not satisfying at all.
  • Seasons: 2
  • Episodes: 23

My Opinion:

This show is SO close to my heart, i cant even describe how much i love it. I started it because of Wachowskis( im a huge Matrix fan) but it managed to take its own place in my heart. The show absorbs you into its universe without you noticing and makes you feel like you really are one of the sensates either, its strange. But its also the reason why im freaking mad at Netflix, 'cause while there are tons of shitty shows that doesnt even deserve the quarter budget of Sense8 has, Netflix cut this one off due to budget issues. Theres gonna be a 2 hour finale to wrap up the story but how much will it be enough when there were so many things we could get from this show?

6.ALTERED CARBON:

Set in a future where consciousness is digitized and stored, a prisoner returns to life in a new body and must solve a mind-bending murder to win his freedom.

Info:

  • Drama, Sci-Fi
  • Year: 2018
  • Finished?: Thank god, no.
  • Seasons: 1
  • Episodes: 10

My Opinion:

Its been a week or two since i finished this show and i cant help but think i wish it had 100 seasons. To be honest at the beginning i thought i didnt find what i was expecting 'cause the universe had seemed a bit... surrealistic to me. Also i had no idea what the hell was going on, who's who and what's what but as you go forward story makes you feel used to it and you slowly start to understand and things start to make sense. Other thing i liked about its universe was that no matter how surrealistic it looked at the beginning as you see the other parts of it, it becomes realistic. It a well-thought world, a whole. And i cant help but add; if i was a Meth, i'd definetely had wanted to have some Ryker clones around me.

7.WESTWORLD:

Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, explore a world in which every human appetite can be indulged without consequence.

Info:

  • Drama, Sci-Fi
  • Year: 2016
  • Finished?: No.
  • Seasons: 1
  • Episodes: 10

My Opinion:

'Westworld Theme' wasnt really my thing and i wanted to check it out after reading about it in a show-critic-blog because i was desperate. First of all i have to say that this isnt a show that everyone might like. It proceeds really slowly and mysteriously, hell i finished it and didnt even understand a single thing and in the last episode i was like 'so what did i just watch?'. Its also another mystery how it gets to like the show when you dont have a single clue about anything. And a little caution: this isnt the kinda show you get home after a really long and exhausting day and wanna get your head off of things and blow out some steam, it'll make your head ache even more. So watch this when you have some spare time and want to watch a really qualified syfy movie dressed as a 10-episode netflix show with a strong story that'll blow your mind .

So, this is it guys! These were my favourite shows so far! Thanks for reading! Feel free to message me anytime, about anything!
