COVID-19 sent hundreds of millions of people all over the world to forced quarantine.
Most of us have to stay at home until at least the beginning of April. A reasonable question arises: what to do? One of the most proven and effective ways is a TV. However, far from always we know exactly what we want to see.
TVseriesPage team decided to help with the problem of choice. We are starting to publish reviews of the most popular TV shows for today. No spoilers!!! We don’t want to spoil your viewing pleasure if you follow these guidelines.
Our first review – Top 5 TV shows (sought-after television series in the world according to the world’s largest information site dedicated to film and television – IMDB.com):
The Outsider (Its premiere took place on January 12, 2020 on the HBO channel. In total, 10 episodes came out, so according to the American classification, it belongs to the category of mini-series. It was shot based on the novel of the same name by the world famous American writer Stephen King.)
Altered Carbon (This is the brainchild of Netflix. Two seasons came out, a total of 18 episodes. The premiere took place in February 2018, but interest is only growing. The series is based on the novel of the same name by Richard Morgan, published in 2002. We are dealing with science fiction, and, more precisely, with a genre called cyberpunk.)
Hunters (This series appeared on February 21, 2020 on the Amazon Prime Video streaming service. Filmed according to the original script. Executive producer was Jordan Peele, director of the acclaimed horror films “Get Out” and “Us”. However, in this time we are dealing with a different genre. This is a mix of thriller and drama.)
The Walking Dead (The release of the tenth season in February returned this series to the top of the popularity rating. Perhaps this was also aided by the COVID-19 pandemic. Indeed, the story told by the famous director Frank Darabont (“The Shawshank Redemption”, “The Green Mile”, “The Mist”) is connected with an unknown virus that turned most of humanity into zombies.)
Better Call Saul (The premiere took place in February 2015. The fifth season started on February 23, 2020. The series is a spin-off and at the same time a prequel to another iconic television project – Breaking Bad.)
In the next reviews, TVseriesPage plans to give ratings to the most popular TV series (Top 5 TV shows), dividing them by genre or Channel.
