We all know you’re watching “Game of Thrones” or “House of Cards”, but here is a list of 5 English shows that you aren’t watching, but you really should be watching because they are that good.
The Missing (BBC)
This criminally under-watched British crime thriller has so many twists and turns that you would think they would become annoying or predictable, but they don’t and they are never predictable. It’s not the most realistic show, but it keeps you on your toes. The cast is terrific and the writing will keep you guessing and wanting to find out more.
A new show by the creator of the Wire (which placed 2nd place on our “Greatest shows of all time” list), David Simon, the Deuce follows the lives of prostitutes, pimps and other characters who live in or near Times’ Square in New York in the 1970s. The characters navigate am environment of porn and prostitution, both of which were illegal, as porn starts to face fewer restrictions. Great performances by almost every character, including the two top stars – Maggie Gylenhal and James Franco. HBO has renewed it for a 2nd season. It’s must-watch TV
The only show on this list to make our “Greatest shows of all time” list, Atlanta is simply a wonderful program. It deals with the issues of the Black community in America. It is shown through the lens of a young aspiring rapper and his friends. It never takes a heavy hand, but it is always funny and though provoking.
