AUGUST FAVES : FOUR TELEVISION SERIES YOU JUST CAN'T MISS

If you know me on a personal level then you will know that I'm the gal who has watched every single crime drama going, I also know all of the names and ages of all the cast members in every series I have ever watched. Some may call me a know it all but I like to think of myself as a walking/talking IMDB and I'm perfectly ok with that. In all seriousness though, since my last post on my favorite tv series (you can read it here) I actually think I've watched every television series Netflix has to offer, whether this is a good thing or a bad thing, that's entirely down to your judgment. 

TV series actually mean a lot more to me than a normal person and it feels quite weird saying that but I love looking forward to a new episode each week and I love the storylines they produce. I'm just a sucker for the drama of it all and I find the behind the scenes facts and trivia to be my absolute fave thing to research. Please if you're like me, then message me and tell me I'm not alone...

CHICAGO FIRE 
I'm just going to kick this post off with one of my most loved series at the moment. Chicago Fire is based in Chicago (obvs) and it follows a brigade of firemen (also obvs) fighting fires and just being total badasses. I know what you're thinking, I had you at firefighters didn't I? Of course, it's great to watch from that aspect but the storylines are just so gripping and actually interesting, I've watched some crime dramas in the past that were so simple to work out and I've actually been bored by a few of them. I dunno if you would call it a crime drama but it's structure it practically the same, it's just a different take on it and I think that's what I love the most. There was an episode about one of the female paramedics becoming a firefighter, one of the men was expressing how men are stronger than women... blah blah blah and let's just say that they totally tackled the discussion brilliantly and women firefighters are totally a thing and I'm loving it. 

ORPHAN BLACK
I know I know, I mentioned Orphan Black in my last post but I'm not gonna lie to you guys, this series has got to be the best damn thing I've ever watched and I've watched a lot, some things twice over. It's only recently released it's final ever episode and their last season honestly had me in tears. When I describe the series plot to other people they legit look at me as if I have like 8 heads or something because it does sound bizarre but if you're into the sci-fi genre and you like weird and thought provoking things then this series is perfect for you. If you've already watched it then please leave a comment down below on your favorite sestra is and why! If you want to know more about the series this please check out my last post here.


BIG LITTLE LIES
This bad boy isn't on Netflix but I was able to stream it online and oh ma dayz... There are 7 episodes of just pure brilliantness. If I had to compare it to anything else it would have to be an American version of Broadchurch but with Oscar nominated actresses and a brilliant ending that will make you wee with excitement. It stars Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard, Reece Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley and if that's not enough to convince you then you're like super weird ok... like who doesn't love the sound of that cast? I can't really explain the story line to you because one small detail could ruin it for you and I'm not that gal ok but, what I will say is that it focuses on normal people, normal families but it all focuses on a murder... you go through the series not knowing who's been murdered, why they've been murdered or who the murderer is. You're practically a detective whilst watching this series which is what I loved the most about it, it makes you think and I came up with so many theories about who the victim and the murder was and then when it came down to the ending... I was shook.

GOTHAM
Gotham is a bit of a weird one, it's definitely something I wasn't expecting to like if I'm keeping it real with you. It follows a very young Bruce Wayne in the aftermath of the murder of his parents but, the main character isn't even young Batman over here, it's James Gordon (The detective that Gary Oldman plays in the Batman films). The cast is bloody brilliant, Jada Pinkett Smith is in it and I'm living for her character in this series, It does sound like a strange concept for a television series but, it just gives you a better understanding of how Bruce Wayne became Batman. It has a very Tim Burton feel to it and it's also set in modern day which I really like. I'm a massive fan of the DC comic books so when I watched this, I was literally so gassed to see how all of my favorite characters like the Riddler, Cat Women and Penguin became who they are. Omg... they also introduce a young teenage Joker and coming from an ex-performing arts student, I was shook by his acting and his portrayal of the Joker. It's legit everything I imagine the Joker to be and is possibly my favorite portrayal of the Joker... ever.


Even though I included a series that I mentioned in my last post, this was so hard! I've watched hundreds of television series and to only pick a couple was a big challenge to me, I hope you like the sound of my fave series picks for August and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on them down in the comments below.

What's your favorite TV show? I'm always looking for new ones to watch.
