DISCLAIMER: I AM GOING TO WATCH GAME OF THRONES SEASON 7!
With Game Of Thrones being one of my favourite book series (A Song Of Ice and Fire) and T.V. show it is really disappointing to know that the show is no more dependent on the books by George R. R. Martin. Even though throughout the previous seasons the T.V. shows drifted from the original storyline here and there, going independent is something I absolutely do not like. If you feel the same way, here are 5 T.V. shows that are as cool and awesome as Game Of Thrones, if not more, that you should watch (if you have not already) until you finally give up and watch GoT S7 anyway!
1. BLACK MIRROR
The show looks inwards, at the darker aspects of humanity and society. This is done through the theme of technology, hence the second meaning. The black mirror is the screen that rules our lives. Taking contemporary phenomena as a starting point and speculate how such phenomena could/would evolve in the future. Each episode tells a different story with different protagonists and focuses on a different theme. Personal favourite (episode)? San Junipero!
2. THE CROWN
The Crown focuses on Queen Elizabeth II as a 25-year-old newlywed faced with the daunting prospect of leading the world’s most famous monarchy while forging a relationship with legendary Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. The British Empire is in decline, the political world is in disarray, and a young woman takes the throne….a new era is dawning.
A Brazilian dystopian thriller set in a future where the world is divided between the Offshore, full of progress and affluence, and the Inland, which is devastated by poverty. Candidates are given a chance to cross from the Inland, but only 3% will succeed.
4. CHEWING GUM
If you haven’t watched Chewing Gum, go and watch it because it is exceptionally funny. The show stars Michaela Coel as Tracey Gordon who was raised in a super religious household, but she just really wants to have sex, see the world, and have sex.
5. STRANGER THINGS
In a small town where everyone knows everyone, a peculiar incident starts a chain of events that leads to the disappearance of a child – which begins to tear at the fabric of an otherwise peaceful community. Dark government agencies and seemingly malevolent supernatural forces converge on the town while a few locals begin to understand that there’s more going on than meets the eye. Watch it because the next season rolls out later this year!
Oh and also watch Game Of Thrones Season 7!
