I’m only giving you 3 because you really should study…eventually.
When I was in a TV show rut and wanted something new, Outlander was a sci-fi, adventure-romance that caught my eye. I finished the 16 episodes of season one approximately 16 hours later. Whoops!
The show’s three seasons, two of which are on Netflix thus far, are continuously packed with new storylines and twists, which I guarantee will prevent you from leaving your couch for days. The reason the storylines are so rich in content is that the show’s general storylines have been procured from the book series written by Diana Gabaldon. There are now eight novels in this series so, there are hopefully many seasons still to come.
2. BoJack Horseman
Saddle up (terrible pun, I know) because although this animated series may come off as a comedy at first glance, it has the surprising ability to turn into a drama. The story moves forward with the character development of BoJack. He is a half-horse half human (yes you read that right) who is slowly rediscovering his own identity after spending years in the Hollywood spotlight, overindulging with alcohol and drugs.
Throughout the four seasons, the story opens up to BoJack’s friends and family, all of whom have many of their own crises, with comedic relief strategically placed. If you’re looking for a lighter drama, this show is the perfect choice.
Pretend like you’re studying for your history exam when watching this show about the involvement of the Hudson’s Bay Company in the 1700’s fur trade in North America. To keep you on edge, it has many graphic fight scenes between multiple factions who are fighting for power over the fur trade. The leader of one of these factions is named Declan Harp, played by Jason Momoa, yes the same actor that played the very intense, attractive and ruthless Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones.
He’s not the only great thing about this show! A lot of it is actually shot here in Canada! Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Newfoundland and Labrador have hosted many of the Frontier sets. This historical-drama is sure to keep you preoccupied with two successful seasons and a third already ordered!
