Must Watch Shows

Since we moved in together, we have been watching TV shows so much more!

Here are some of our favourite shows (no spoilers).


Foundation - AppleTV+ Original

Themes: Sci-Fi, Futuristic, Mystery


Short Bio:

The fate of an entire galaxy rests on the beliefs of Dr. Hari Seldon (Jared Harris). Will his conviction save humanity or doom it? Based on the award-winning novels by Isaac Asimov, Foundation chronicles a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save humanity and rebuild civilization amid the fall of the Galactic Empire.


Our take:

I'd have to say this is now one of our favourite shows of all time! Hangingggg for season 3 to come out. 😭

There are many storylines and 'main characters' in this series and they are all great for different reasons. Heaps of twists and the storyline is super interesting the entire way through.


 

SILO - AppleTV Original

Themes: Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Dystopian Future


Short Bio:

In a ruined and toxic future, thousands live in a giant silo deep underground. After its sheriff breaks a cardinal rule and residents die mysteriously, engineer Juliette (Rebecca Ferguson) starts to uncover shocking secrets and the truth about the silo.


Our take:

Loved every episode of this series, hooked us right from the start! We loved watching Rebecca Ferguson in Dune, so we were keen to see her playing the main character role in this series. I teared up a few times throughout S1 which goes to show the acting and storytelling in this series is great! Keen for S2 to come out... later this year we hope.


 

Severance - AppleTV+ Original

Themes: Thriller, Sci-Fi, Mystery, Psychological thriller, Soap opera, Drama, Utopian and Dystopian fiction


Short Bio:

From Ben Stiller and creator Dan Erickson, Severance centers around Mark Scout (Adam Scott), a leader of a team of office workers whose memories have been surgically divided between their work and personal lives.


Our take:

Painstakingly slow, but super addictive. Everything happens in the last episode of the season and honestly it's worth the wait. Such a cliffhanger end to S1 and keen to see how S2 pans out!!


 

Dark Matter - AppleTV+ Original

Themes: Mystery, Sci-Fi, Novel, Thriller, Suspense, Psychological Fiction


Short Bio:

Dark Matter is a sci-fi thriller series based on the blockbuster book by acclaimed, bestselling author Blake Crouch. The nine-episode series features an ensemble cast that includes Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Connelly, Alice Braga, Jimmi Simpson, Dayo Okeniyi and Oakes Fegley.


Our take:

Currently watching this now and it's pretty good so far. It is a little confusing as they jump to different perspectives a lot, so you need to be SAT and paying attention to each episode. Will keep you posted once we are finished S1.


 

Bridgerton - Netflix

Themes: Romantic TV Dramas, TV Dramas, TV Shows Based on Books, Period Pieces


Short Bio:

As a new crop of debutantes yearns to become the brightest of the ball, a wallflower with a double life finds her light amid secrets and surprises.


Our take:

Absolutely love all of the characters, set & costume design in this. We feel like despite the fact there’s a lot of gossip and drama in the show, it’s not the type that makes you feel anxious! It’s more of an exciting watch where you’re on the edge of your couch hoping for happy endings. A really great modern take on older times!


 

How to Get Away with Murder - Netflix

Themes: Legal thriller, Mystery


Short Bio:

Brilliant criminal defense attorney and law professor Annalise Keating, plus five of her students, become involved in a twisted murder case.


Our take:

PLOT TWISTS AT EVERY TURN. We feel like in this show you love every character, then you hate them, then you love them, then they frustrate you. We love that any questions the show brings up always gets answered in the end so it’s a satisfying watch. You really don’t know what’s coming next in this show. The last season or two does feel like it drags a little but overall is a fantastic show.


 

Avatar: Last Airbender (Cartoon Version) - Netflix

Themes: Family Time TV, Kids' TV, TV Cartoons, Fantasy TV Shows


Short Bio:

Siblings Katara and Sokka wake young Aang from a long hibernation and learn he's an Avatar, whose air-bending powers can defeat the evil Fire Nation.


Our take:

We absolutely adore this show. It’s such a wholesome and fulfilling show to watch. Despite the fact it’s a cartoon, every episode has a mini life lesson that you can take away from it. Each of the characters storyline’s are so deep, you actually love every character but for different reasons (even the bad ones)! And the ending and storyline is just everything! I love that they didn’t drag out the show just because it was performing well, it’s the perfect length and each episode feels like it has a purpose to the overall storyline.


 

Inventing Anna - Netflix

Themes: TV Dramas, US TV Shows, TV Shows Based on Real Life


Short Bio:

Audacious entrepreneur or con artist? A journalist chases down the story of Anna Delvey, who convinced New York's elite she was a German heiress.


Our take:

THE BEST. It is absolutely mind boggling the things the main character was able to get away with for so long. The story is such an interesting one especially because it’s based on a real life experience. Alessia feels like Anna is a boss, you feel both happy but also sorry for her.


 

That's So Raven - Disney+

Themes: Comedy, Family/Children


Short Bio:

Raven Baxter is a typical teenager who just happens to be psychic. The only problem is that Raven's sneak peeks into the future can make her (and her best friends Eddie and Chelsea) jump to the wrong conclusions. Somehow, they manage to create more comedic problems than they solve!


Our take:

One of our favourite childhood shows that still makes us laugh every time we watch! Whenever we need a mood booster, we chuck some Raven on!


 

Scandal - Disney+

Themes: Drama, Thriller


Short Bio:

Olivia Pope, former head of media relations to the President, opens her own firm. She and her team use their skills to become the most formidable problem solvers in Washington.


Our take:

One of our top 5 favourite TV shows, this series is KILLER! It follows the life of a publicist that needs to diffuse scandals for high ranking politicians and powerful people. Meanwhile, if you watch the entire series, the main character becomes a bit of a publicity nightmare for the white house herself. Would watch this again it was so good!


 

Gray's Anatomy - Disney+

Themes: Medical, Romantic, Melodrama, Ensemble Drama


Short Bio:

The high-intensity medical drama follows Meredith Grey and the team of doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial who are faced with life-or-death decisions on a daily basis. They seek comfort from one another, and, at times, more than just friendship.


Our take:

Despite the fact that I have only watched 5 seasons I really LOVE this show! I think there’s a character and also a storyline which everyone and anyone can relate to. It’s got a perfect mixture of drama and comedy, and I really like that although they’re working at a hospital doing surgery it’s not super gruesome!


The only reason I haven’t continued to watch the show was because there’s 20 seasons and that feels like a huge commitment I’m not ready to make yet. But overall the show is fantastic!


 

The Kardashians - Disney+

Themes: Reality-TV


Short Bio:

The family you know and love is back with a brand-new series that gives an all-access pass into their lives. Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie bring the cameras back to reveal the truth behind the headlines. From the intense pressures of running billion-dollar businesses to the hilarious joys of playtime and school drop-offs, this series brings viewers into the fold with a rivetingly-honest story of life and love in the spotlight.


Our take:

Reality TV that is so far from our reality is so interesting 😂. A lot of people don't like the Kardashians, but after watching their show for many seasons now, you can't dispute they are masters of staying relevant. Even though more recent seasons feel like an Advertisement, we still keep watching every season.
