Top 5 TV shows to binge–watch this Easter break
Hello there! Easter is just around the corner and we’re all dreaming about the much-needed break from uni. Although you might not be completely free, what with deadlines and exams fast catching up on you, I’d thought you’d still have time for a little breather. So, I did as little digging and found which new TV shows you should spend your precious, well-deserved break on. Read on to see my top picks among the new TV shows to binge-watch this Easter break.
1. Riverdale (The CW)
My favourite out of all the new ones, Riverdale is set in the Archie Comics universe, and revolves around the murder mystery of who killed Jason Blossom. It features all the much-loved characters from the comics, including Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, all grown up now!). With a premise that makes it seem like ‘Twin Peaks’ meets ‘Gossip Girl’, this one is sure shot winner.
2. Big Little Lies (HBO)
I’m extremely excited for this HBO mini-series because I’ve read the book this series is based on, and trust me, the book is brilliant. The series isn’t going to be any less than the book judging by the stellar cast that it has: Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley! The series showcases the stories of three women (mothers of first-graders) who live in the same town, and how an unexpected death unravels every secret they have.
3. Legion (FX)
Legion follows the story of David Haller (played by Dan Stevens of ‘Downton Abbey’ fame), a fictional character in the Marvel Comics universe. Haller is a schizophrenic (or so he’s been told) and is constantly in and out of psychiatric hospitals. Until, he meets fellow patient Syd, and begins to question what he’s been led to believe about himself. His discovery of his mutant powers and the consequences of his discovery form the rest of the plot.
4. This is Us (NBC)
This show premiered in Fall 2016, so its technically not new, but it’s on my list because it’s a must watch. It catches your attention from the very beginning as it follows a unique ensemble of people who share their birthdays. Starring Milo Ventimiglia (‘Gilmore Girls’) and Mandy Moore (‘A Walk to Remember’) among others, every episode is a tear-jerker. The show has the unique ability to make you empathize with the protagonists, and warms the cockles of your heart. This one is not be missed.
5. Powerless (NBC)
The first-ever comedy set in the DC Comics universe, Powerless promises to be hilarious and endearing at the same time. The show follows the daily lives of the employees of Wayne Security (Yes, they work for Batman!), who are in charge of cleaning up the collateral damage left behind by superheroes while they’re busy saving the world from villains. Headlined by Vanessa Hudgens, co-starring Danny Pudi (‘Community’), and Alan Tudyk (‘Suburgatory’), the show has a different premise that makes it worth giving it a shot.
Hope you find these shows just as entertaining as I do. If you do watch them, let me know which one you liked the best. Cheers!
