My TV recommendations

Posted by Megan Britton at 10:50
In case anyone is looking for something to help replace the amazing Parks and Recreations, like I do every time I finish rewatching it, no need to fear!
I've prepared a list of very awesome shows that will help fill the void!
They're in order from AWESOME- STILL PRETTY COOL

1. The Legend Of Korra


I know many people will see this poster and think it's just a cartoon for children, but it really isn't.
It has many interesting characters.
A brilliant story line.
But most of all- Theres bending of the elements!
It's fantastically exciting and wonderfully designed!
After the first few episodes you'll become addictive
regardless or age.
If you enjoy adventure, fantasy and action this is the perfect show!
Also has an awesome female lead character.







2. Firefly
I can't even explain how much I love this show.
It's everything i've ever wanted in a series.
Action, Adventure, fantasy, Space, family bonds, travelling, crime and creative and real characters.
I had so much fun watching this series, I was horrible disappointed when it was over as there just wasn't enough to consume!
Thankfully there's a movie and plenty of awesome merchandise including a celebration book which is filled with everything, any question you could possible think of to ask about the work of firefly is hidden within the pages of that book!
Watch and fall in love!

3. Jane The Virgin


I've mentioned this show before.
Unlike so many TV shows and Movies this series is unlike anything i've ever seen before.
It's hilarious, exciting, dramatic and the design and characters work so well together to create a truly magical show filled with entertainment.
Never a boring moment!
So if you're looking for something new, this is the show that'll surprise you!





4. Community




The series went through a few rough seasons but it's definitely worth the watch regardless!
Each character is so different yet they compliment eachother perfectly.
The show is funny and inventive.
Theres always something weird and strange happening, it'll keep you hooked, if for no other reason but wanting to know what they'll do next!
Some of the characters leave the show but are always replaced with someone new and just as interesting.







5. Game of Thrones

If you haven't seen the show yet you're missing out.
The first season is especially graphic and sexual but the series has everything, there's fantasy, adventure, action, drama, scandals, sex, betrayal, brutal murder, sneak attacks, concurring and dragons!
Truly exciting and fantastically designed,  something I can vouch for from having worked on the series myself.


6. Hannibal

Every word spoken in this series has been meticulously thought out and is spoken like poetry.
Hannibal is this wonderfully elegant character that you're drawn to, yet you know theres something not quite right about him to begin with.
Everything in this show is dripping with passion.
The design and decoration of the sets, the way the food is presented, the way the characters speak. Everything.
The suspense though out the show could cause you to pass out from not realising you've been holding your breath.

Unfortunately it was just announced that the show was cancelled, something fellow fans are heart broken about.
It wasn't given the advertisement and publicity it deserved.
Such a wonderfully presented show shouldn't be cut short.
Still it's certainly worth the watch! I have no doubt that this new and final season will still end brilliantly as they've been under threat of cancellation from the start so each season wraps itself up on it's own terms.

7. The Last Man On Earth

I've never watched a more hilarious and cringey show.
It's a show you can't watch yet can't look away!
The main character is such an ass, he's always screwing up and making a fool of himself but it's so entertaining and you'll never laugh so hard!

8. Brooklyn Nine-Nine


Another funny tv series.
It's a cop show unlike any other. I guess it'd be the scrubs of cop shows.
It doesn't take things too seriously it's just out to have a good time.
The main character Jake is childish and quirky giving a lighter take on NY police force.


9. Castle

jjn
After I finished watching firefly I fell for Nathan Fillion's wonderful acting. I could tell any show he was in was sure to be worth watching. The series is all about a crime writer who tags along with a hot, kick ass female detective for inspiration for his novels. 
He ends up consulting and helps close many cases. 
It's funny, exciting and goes on for so many season that you really get to know the characters and see relationship naturally develop!


10. Dare Devil
I originally expected this show to be quite tame.
But It's brutal and graphic. 
There are incredibe fight scenes and realistic beating. 
The main character is perfect, he can easily blend from the blind yet tough lawyer to the deadly vigilante fighter. I throughly enjoyed the action and suspense this show presented!


11. The Flash

I won't lie, there are a few episodes that are a little less than awesome, but don't let that deter you! 
Any show with superpowers is interesting and cool. 
This one does a better job at presenting the new powers and skills that appear throughout Central City. 
The main character is still just a boy, he tries to act mature, even has a proper serious job in the police force, but he's implusive and clearly obsessed with the idea of being a 'superhero' but he does it well and he's got a lot of passion!
There are a few truly cool and interesting characters, and some that need some work or changing. 
Over all this show is pretty cool but not a master piece. 
Still worth the watch, especially if you're a fan of the supernatural and curious of what cool and new powers someone has thought up just for this show! 





I do have a much longer list but I feel these should keep anyone looking entertained for the time being. However if you're super cool and have already seen everything i've listed leave a comment and let me know what you're into and I'll give you a personal list of cool series that'll match your tastes! 
I have have a Japanese and Korean series list. Don't be discouraged by the subs they're worth watching and heck, something new!
