Here are some of the best TV shows that i watched in 2019 and absolutely enjoyed. I am not saying these are the only good shows of 2019 but these are the once i fell in love with. Some of them are continuation of the previous seasons. I will try not to contain any spoilers.
Network : Netflix
Unbelievable is based an unbelievable true story happened to a girl who got raped and the authorities end up not believing her. She forced to live with the false accusations. Gripping screenplay and incredible acting makes Unbelievable one of the best shows i watched in 2019.
My Rating: 7.8/10
9. Good Omens
Network: Amazon Prime
Based on the Christianity, Good Omens tells a story about an angel and a demon trying to save the world from the “Armageddon”. Even if the premise and the characters were raised some eyebrows from a short amount of people, i thought it was a brilliant piece of art. Michael Sheen and David Tennant combo was an absolute delight to watch. An interesting story tied with light hearted comedy.
My Rating: 7.9/10
8. Euphoria Season 1
The HBO’s Euphoria can’t be defined as yet another teen drama, it should have its own category. The show portraits depression, sexual addiction, anger issues, drug usage etc. It wont fear away from the truth. the Hollywood star Zendaya is the center character and plays a drug addict. It is raw and and filled with emotions. And by the way, Labrinth’s sound tracks were perfect.
My Rating: 8.1/10
7. Bojack Horseman Season 6
This was the show most recommended to me by my friends. After watching the trailer i thought, what could be in an animated show. And after watching the first two episodes i couldn’t stop watching it. It simply is the best animated show i have seen in my life. The discusses matters which most TV shows are even afraid to show. The main character Bojack, a retired famous sitcom actor, trying to cope with his new life after the fame. Don’t let the animation fool you, the show is strictly not for kids.
My Rating: 8.3/10
6. Killing Eve Season 2
Network: BBC America
An unlikely relationship between a ruthless serial killer and the investigating officer. Even though Phoebe Waller-Bridge is no longer a part of the show the quality of the show is still the same. Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh are acting like they are the finalists of an acting show. Especially Jodie, her serial killer character “Villanelle” must be the most terrifying character.
My Rating: 8.6
5. When They See Us
Netflix’s When the see us based on the jogger assault and murder in New York Central park 1989. Five young people were subsequently charged with the crime and be labeled as the infamous “Central Park Five”. They were spend years in fighting convictions, hoping to be released. The fact that it is a true story almost make it a hard to watch.
My Rating: 8.9/10
Aired in May 2019, Chernobyl is based on the Chernobyl Nuclear disaster in 1986. Out of all shows and movies about the same Chernobyl incident, this one is the most thrilling and horrifying at the same time. The fact that the possibility of the same disaster happening at any moment to anyone is the most terrifying. This must be a horror show in a non horror genre.
My Rating: 9/10
3. Mindhunter Season 2
Successor of an already amazing predecessor, Mindhunter reinvents the thriller genre. The FBI agents Ford and Bill trying to study serial killers through interviews for the future investigation purposes. The Mindhunter has an excellent screenplay for making this dialogue driven drama engaging. You can watch all 9 episodes of season 2 in one sitting and you will not get bored.
My Rating: 9.3/10
2. Dark Season 2
If you love science fiction, if you are fan of complicated and twisted stories, this one is for you. After only 2 seasons it had become one of my all time favorite show. It is a show about time travel, that’s all i can say. It is the only show or movie about time travel which does make any sense. And you need to give full attention to the story and the characters to understand what the hell is going on. Oh and by the way its a German show.
My Rating: 9.6/10
1. Fleabag Season 2
Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s one women show converted into a 12 episode series i the best TV show i have seen in 2019. Brilliant should be under appreciation for this work of pure art. I don’t want to talk about the story. Go watch yourself.
My Rating: 9.7/10
