4 TV series you probably haven’t watched, but should
Michael Straczynski creates a addicting story of 8 people from around the world that suddenly link minds. They can feel what each other is feeling, speak to each other and can even start to use each other’s talents, but will it be enough to hide from a enemy that wants to destroy them.
The beginning of the show is quite hectic as the screen jumps between characters, emotions and feelings producing a sense of confusion for both the viewer and the characters as they start to come to grips with what is happening.
However as the confusion of what is happening swirls around the viewer, plot hooks and hints leave in insatiable thirst for more. It’s not until the second or third episode that the story-line coalesces and the confusion starts to fade, by that time however you will be have swallowed the plot hooks, line and sinker. The first season concludes with a semi-satisfying 12 episodes (wished there were more!). However as a Netflix series, all season episode are released at the same time! When season two rolls out, all episode will be released at the same time. Pop the popcorn and settle in front of the TV, cause it’s gonna be a long week!.

One of the longest running shows in the world, Dr Who dates itself back to 1963 . Dr Who, a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who adventures through time and space in his TARDIS, that, due to a malfunction, is stuck in an appearance of a Blue British Police box.
The Doctor, who is currently portrayed by Peter Capaldi, can regenerate his mind and body when hurt, (or old) enough to die. a novel method of allowing new actors to step into the title role and develop the character all over again, and it’s the main reason the show has been able to span over 50 years of television.
If you have not yet started to follow the good Doctor, I would recommend starting with Rose , the first episode of the 2005 season and follow Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor though the current season starting September 19, 2015.
Be sure to buy a lot of microwave popcorn, even Power Watching this series is going to take time, but it’s worth every moment.
Note: The series also has a spin off called Torchwood that is well worth watching.
