New Shows Worth Checking Out

Recommended Posts

I don't watch regular TV, hate commercials, so I rely on torrents and places such as this to discover new shows, or finished/currently airing shows i've never heard of, worth checking out. I don't know if there'll be much interest in this topic, and I don't see a similar topic, so i'm going to give it a try and hope it helps.

 

Rules are simple - Post new shows, with links if possible, that will premiere soon, currently airing, finished first season or even about to air second season, for those of us who are not current on tv schedules. Please also note if it's something other than live-action; i.e. cartoon, anime or foreign language.

1) Colonyhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt4209256/  I think this sci-fi alien invasion show has potential, first season just ended. Those who watch The Walking Dead will know one of the actresses as the mother who died while giving birth.

 

2) Billionshttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt4270492/ - A great white collar crime drama worth watching, currently in first season airing on Showtime. There are a couple of actors of note some may know.

1) Ballers - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2891574/  A HBO sports drama starring The Rock. Season 1 already aired, it is definitely worth watching. Season 2 is in production.

 

2) Public Morals http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3597854/ A crime drama set in the 1960s in NYC. It involved police corruption and organized crime. One season aired last year, well worth watching, but morons at TNT cancelled it.

Stranger Things - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4574334/ A new Netflix sci-fi/horror series based in the 80s. After watching first episode it looks interesting, my first impression is Goonies meets X-Files. 

this is gonna sound crazy but when i saw the promo for this series i actually thought it was Radio Flyer: The Series. don't ask me why i really have no idea but i thought it was a little bit funny.... xD

The Eric Andre Show - Surrealist comedy late night talk show. Kind of needs to be seen to be understood. Fourth season started a couple days ago.

I've been enjoying Orange is the New Black lately, too. It's a drama about a women's prison, and even though it at first sounds like phoned in girl power crap, it's a great show. (really though, how immature would you have to be to pass on a show just because the cast is mainly female?). It's on Netflix, up to season 4.

Just watched stranger things as i had heard  good things about it. The 80's setting worked well as a homage to many 80's films and i liked the atmosphere as they really pulled it off well.

Bosch - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3502248/  A Amazon Prime Crime-Drama about an L.A. homicide detective. The second season has finished airing. I have not seen this show yet, but as a fan of cop shows and from the ratings and comments I plan on checking it out.

1) BrainDead -  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4877736/ A comedy based on the U.S. Congress and extraterrestrials. 1st season has just ended. I haven't seen this yet, since I rarely watch sitcoms, but I will make an exception and check this out...Congress, Aliens, Brain Dead, that's gotta be funny.

 

 

2) Quarry - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2980696/ A Cinemax Crime/Drama centered around a returning Vietnam veteran, set in 1972. I've watched the first episode and have reservations about it, I usually turn off anything that gives a negative stereotype of vets, and on top of that the producers made an almost unforgivable historical error in setting this in 1972 instead of what I consider is mid 60s, but it was a good episode and has potential.

1) Westworld - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0475784/  A HBO series reboot of the 1973 film. After watching season 1 I highly recommend this show.

 

2) Shooterhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt4181172/ A USA Network series based off the best-selling novel and 2007 film. I've watched 6 episodes so far and i'm hooked. Hopefully this won't go the way of Prison Break.
