I am ridiculously obsessed with T.V series.Let's just say if i am at home, 9 out of 10 times kanke is most likely watching a T.V series. Movies are amazing and in my opinion one of the best inventions of all times but i always find them too short. At the end of almost two hours (some movies even less) the drama and the brief absense from reality is over. You are back to planet earth and have to wait for a part 2 if you are lucky to get back to that fantasy world.
On the other hand, i have T.V series. I once spent an entire weekend watching all the seasons of a particular T.V series without leaving my bed (Sad i know!). The fact that i can be transported to another world and observe things from the eyes of the characters is fascinating for me and i constantly look for new and interesting TV series to watch. Sadly, my regular shows are either finished, cancelled or off till the next season (i run through them like a jamaican Bolt #Ludacris).
Here is my list of top 5 best T.V series to watch. This is my personal preference and i look forward to watching the next episode or season religiously. I wish i could do a top 10 list because there are amazing shows i truly enjoy that might have made it to my top 10 list had i decided to do one. T.V series like Parks & Recreation(NBC), Suits (USA Network), Orange Is The New Black( Netflix), The Newsroom( HBO), The Big Bang Theory(CBS) and not forgetting the absolute hilarity of Downton Abbey(ITV).If you have any good T.V series you can recommend please comment down below. I will love to hear your current fav T.V series.
Drum rolls please...
