5 TV Shows You Need To Watch If You Are Looking For Something Different

5 TV Shows You Need To Watch If You Are Looking For Something Different

Who has not spend a weekend binge-watching a new (or old) TV show? We all did, no need to deny it! And what happens when you have gone through all the episodes? Well, you look for something else to watch! And just in case you are looking for something far away from Riverdale, Gossip Girl, Friends and the likes, here are 5 shows that I am sure you will love!

1. Altered carbon
Altered carbon is the latest original Netflix show. I binge-watched it in a weekend, hooked from the first episode. I don’t want to spoil or ruin the show for you so I won’t tell much about the plot. The show takes place in a sort of dystopian future where people have achieved immortality through what they call a stack containing their memory. They can take off that stack of their body and put into another. So they never die. Although the ethic questions about immortality are asked in the show, it does not only revolves around it but focuses on the main character’s journey to solve a murder. I was super excited when I saw the trailer and the show does not disappoint!

2. The 100
The show has been around for a few years already. I have to be honest, when it started I really wondered if it was gonna be a cliché of a show where super attractive teenager are being sent off to an unlivable earth to show off their perfectly muscled bodies. Then, the story became more complex, the characters more interesting, the stakes higher. What I love about this show is that nothing is black or white, it is always more complex. There are no bad guys but just people who want to protect their own. And most importantly, both genders are treated in the same way in the show. Gaze-wise I mean. There are naked bodies and explicit scenes BUT we see them in both men and women’s eyes, which is quite refreshing. The season 5 is starting very soon, just saying!

3. Madam Secretary
If you are looking for a show with not only one female lead but many kick-ass women at the wheel, then Madam Secretary is for you. Of course, the show taking place in Washington, the US is kinda glorified a bit there. BUT it is great to see a smart, strong and determined women who also have weaknesses doing great. And sending a strong message to girls. Because this is actually what happens quite often in the show! I love that she is not portrayed as a superwoman but as a human being who sometimes needs help and that she (or any other characters – including male characters) are never shamed for that. And it is nice to see a woman running the world for once! The season 4 is out although we have to wait March 11th for the second half!

4. The Good Place
I know I have already mentioned The Good Place in my What To Binge-Watch In November BUT The Good Place is just so good, I could not leave it out of this list! I love how diverse the cast is (although it annoys me that Jason is so stupid) and how funny situations are. Also, it is a show where things are not all black and white and where bad people can change and turn good, where forgiving mistakes and giving a second chance are a key focus of the plot. And where you realize that even the “good” ones have some darkness in them. So yeah, it is definitely a must-see if you want to have a good time. There are two seasons on Netflix already and each episode is 20 minutes long so I guess you have your weekend sorted!

5. Blue Planet
Blue Planet is the most beautiful show I have ever watched. The images are gorgeous, the colors stunning and the stories hypnotizing. Also, I have a weak spot for David Attenborough’s voice. Yes, I love it a lot: his voice is so soothing. And I binge-watches both seasons. The first one is on Netflix. If you are upset, depressed, annoyed or have any other unpleasant feeling, watch this. The beauty of nature will stun you and you will feel much better! And David’s voice! His voice! Am I the only one who thinks his voice is amazing?!

Have you watched any of these? Or heard of? Would you give them a go? What TV shows are you loving at the moment? Anything unusual? Any recommendation?

Thanks for reading. Hope you liked this post.

  2. February 8, 2018 / 12:51 pm

    I love Madam Secretary. I’m such a fan of shows that show strong women in power because I believe that WOMEN will one day RULE the WORLD. Gender-bias aside, I am going to check out Blue Planet since you recommend it. I want to hear that voice.

  3. February 8, 2018 / 1:37 pm

    I will have to check these out. I have started watching The Good Place and I am amused by it. I’ll try Altered Carbon–I love Netflix shows for the most part.

  4. February 9, 2018 / 12:24 am

    I’ve always been curious about Madame Secretary but I haven’t had the chance to watch it because it’s been a little hectic at work! I’ll be sure to check that one out.

    Altered carbon is totally on my list of things to watch at the moment, it looks like a really good show. Netflix are really pulling out the stops with the things they produce.

  11. February 9, 2018 / 7:27 pm

    I’ve watched the 100 and loved it. I haven’t watched Altered Carbon, but it’s in my Watchlist.

  12. February 9, 2018 / 8:09 pm

    I dont watch much TV as my husband hogs the TV. When I do get control of the remote, all my boys are too loud for me to enjoy any show.

  13. February 9, 2018 / 8:12 pm

    Literally a few hours ago when I was eating my tea I kept saying to my other half, I need a new show to watch. Madam secretary looks right up my street. Will be checking it out tonight for sure, thank you both!

    The 100 show is one of my favourites! I’ve always really enjoyed every season, I can’t wait to see for the new one to start! Also, Blue Planet is an amazing show – I don’t think I’ve ever watched another documentary that is anywhere near as amazing as that one. They always captures the scenes so perfectly!

    We do love the Good Place here. It was one of my favorite shows from when it first came out. And I just Binge Watched all of Altered Carbon myself. It was definitely worthy although I am curious as to what they are going to do with the second season. I hope they have as good a second go at it.
