Top Ten Tuesday: TV Shows on my Radar

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Another Freebie-week! I give you a list of TV shows that I am thinking about trying out soon & shows coming up later this year that I NEED to see.

American Gods –> It finally has a release date and it’s the end of April. I hope it will debut here in Australia at the same time. Can’t wait, as everything I’ve seen so far looks amazing. I think they did a great job with the cast!

Frontier –> Don’t know a lot about it – I saw it on Netflix and looks like Deadwood with Jason Momoa. Might be a hit.

Black Sails –> I heard it’s supposed to be ‘Game of Thrones with Pirates’. Sounds like a good combination.

The Magicians –> I am always interested in Fantasy book adaptations. Especially since I wanted to read this.

The Crown –> I miss my Downton Abbey and this looks similar. Gimme Drama!

Parks and Recreation –> My boyfriend watches it sometimes and I think this guy with the mustache is pretty funny, I will probably start watching it from the beginning soon.

Fortitude –> Reminds me of Fargo. I also love the setting. ‘Perched on the edge of the Arctic Circle, Fortitude is one of the safest towns on earth. There has never been a violent crime here. Until now. ‘

The Deuce –> I will try out all HBO dramas and this one seems interesting. It deals with the rise of the porn industry in the 1970’s and stars James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal. The creator is the same guy who did ‘The Wire’, one of my all-time favourite shows.

Emerald City –> I fear I will hate it, but it’s a retelling of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and I will have to check it out.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency –> Found it on Netflix as well and sounds different.

Have you watched any of those?

  1. A friend recommended The Magicians quite enthusiastically, so I will keep this show in mind when it airs in my part of the world.

    As for The Crown, I saw season 1 and was literally bowled over by it: your mention about missing Downton Abbey made me smile, because that’s exactly what the friends who recommended we watch The Crown said to me šŸ™‚

  2. I heard Black Sails is awesome so I’d like to get on that too.
    The Magicians has been pretty hit or miss for me. I like every other episode.
    Btw, love your blog name.
    Also, have you watched the Strain? It comes on FX and is a zombie TV show based on a horror novel of the same name.

      1. Aww man.
        I love it. It’s pretty great. Probably good that I didn’t start with the first episode then, which wasn’t very exciting. The show sorta has a slow buildup. I think I started with the first episode of season 3.
