Seven splendid summer TV series
That today’s TV series are better than movies has been a common view for a while now.
Yet personally, I had been very reluctant to be of the same mind. It may had been to my rather unsatisfactory prior experience. Usually, they use to bore me terribly – and, eventually, having started watching few productions, I could not make it to the end.
Apparently, I had a bad luck. With so many diverse TV series available to choose from, my choices were unfortunate.
Still I would like to recommend seven productions that impressed me, intrigued me and have made a TV series enthusiast out of me.
If you … are curious how illegal fortunes were raised in Latin America back in the 80s.
Do you remember Blow movie starring Johnny Deep? If you liked it, just go for Narcos. The Netflix production relates to Blow not only in terms of much the same climate, but also that (in)famous Pablo Escobar, the unprecedented king of drug industry, starred in the movie.
If you … need a coming-of-age comedy-drama.
The chances are, rather slight, that you have not yet seen Lena Dunham five-season production. It takes place in New York, it is a little far-fetched and naive, yet, New York Times claimed that Girls may be the millenial equivalent to Sex and the City. Is more recommendation needed?
If you … rather go for spine-thrilling experience.
AMERICAN HORROR STORY Hotel
Unless you are a Lady Gaga fan, you may not have known that she is an actress – beside her other extensive activity. And, as for me, she is a good one. Horror movies have never attracted me much but AHS Hotel is such a stylish and engaging production, you should give it a try.
If you … want to grasp Birmingham- based shady climate of the 20s.
This one was a tricky one for me as I was very much hesitant to start watching Peaky Blinders. However, it was the very first series I was binge-watching (and I could not stopped.) The soundtrack, the characters, style – the production may be the best TV series I have ever watched – and this is the opinion I hear quite often.
If you … look for an intriguing mix of mystery, love story and science fiction.
It is a TV series based on Stephen King’s novel. When I realized, it is going to be about time travels, I could not be less convinced. Yet, James Franco in the leading role encouraged me to make an effort – and it was worth it. If there are any history enthusiasts, the title probably rings a bell. The assassination of JFK is the heart of the story line.
If you … crave more sultry stories.
It may be a taboo topic, but being an exclusive escort is a source of income for a raising number of students in big cities nowadays. It is not about being a prostitute – but rather providing with an experience of having a girlfriend to well-off businessmen. Also, it stars Riley Keough who is an outstandingly gorgeous granddaughter of Elvis Presley.
If you … are not afraid of facing brutal reality of today’s world governed by evil corporations.
Even though it is not recognized as a horror movie, it may frighten you to death. It is not based on a true story, yet, it resembles today’s world just way too much not to have such impression. Are you familiar with the history of Enron corporation? Well, without any spoilers, there is a striking resemblance with the true events.
