There are so many awesome TV shows available to watch online that it’s difficult to pick a new one to watch. There’s no worse feeling spending time aimlessly searching for new series so I have put together a list of five shows to binge watch in 2018.
Fargo is a dark comedy and crime series inspired by the 1996 Coen Brothers film of the same name. Each season is set in a different time period with a completely new storyline and cast. The only similarities between each season are the stories mainly take place in either Minnesota and North Dakota. If you like watching TV shows with unpredictable storylines and bizarre characters then Fargo is a great watch. So far, a total of three seasons have been aired with the fourth season not expected to be released until 2020.
Legion is another bizarre TV show that you’ll either love or hate. It is arguably one of the best Marvel series as it’s not afraid to push the boundaries to entertain fans. Legion is about an x-men character named David Haller who is diagnosed with schizophrenia. Having spent time in various psychiatric hospitals, he is confronted with the possibility that there might be more to him than his mental illness. He eventually discovers that his mind is infected by a parasitic mutant. Legion just may be the strangest show on TV. Two seasons have already aired on the FX network and it has been renewed for a third season.
Better Call Saul
The Breaking Bad spin off made my list of hidden gems to watch on Netflix and also airs on AMC. Better Call Saul is about Jimmy McGill, a con artist turned small-time lawyer for criminals. The series starts six years prior to the Breaking Bad storyline and reveals his transformation into his persona as Saul Goodman. I don’t want to give away any spoilers but there are some post Breaking Bad moments included in the series as well. The first season is disappointing but seasons two and three are significantly better and some episodes even match the quality levels of Breaking Bad. The fourth season will air on AMC in August 2018.
Appearing on HBO, the Sci-fi western drama takes place in a technologically advanced amusement park populated by Android hosts which allow their visitors to live out their fantasies. In addition to their stunning visuals, the writing and acting are excellent. A lot of people complained that they weren’t able to get into the show and stopped therefore stopped watching it. The problem is Westworld requires your full attention. This isn’t the kind of show you watch while scrolling through Facebook. Westworld has multiple timelines which can be confusing especially during season one. The first two seasons are currently streaming on HBO.
Peaky Blinders is a British crime series that airs episodes on BBC and is also on Netflix so viewers outside of the UK can enjoy the series. The show follows the notorious Peaky Blinders gang in England in the aftermath of World War One. Their leader Thomas Selby is an ambitious gangster set on moving up in the world no matter the consequences. This is one of few series that gets better as each season progresses. All four seasons are on Netflix with the fifth season currently in production.
