TV Shows From 2015 Worth Checking Out

BLOT Recommends: TV Shows From 2015 Worth Checking Out

2015 has been a great year for TV shows. There have been so many brilliant new shows, returning old shows and that one we said goodbye to (We’ll miss you Leslie Knope and the rest of the Parks & Rec gang!).

Rather than doing a typical best of the year post we’ve decided to recommend our favourite new shows of 2015. So if you missed their inaugural seasons, you still have time to binge before they get their second season!


Scream Queens

IMDB Synopsis: On the twentieth anniversary of a 1995 sorority pledge which went wrong, a college campus is rattled by a series of murders.

Why you should watch it?

  • It’s a top, top dark comedy.
  • The star studded cast really bring their A game.
  • It’s to the 2010s what Scream was to the 90s.

 

Sense8

IMDB Synopsis: A group of people around the world are suddenly linked mentally, and must find a way to survive being hunted by those who see them as a threat to the world’s order.

Why you should watch it?

  • Amazing and diverse cast, all around amazing performances.
  • The Wachowskis at their best!
  • Action, romance, social awareness… this show has everything and then some.

 

Galavant

IMDB Synopsis: The adventures of Galavant, a dashing hero who is determined to reclaim his reputation and his “Happily Ever After” by going after the evil King Richard, who ruined it the moment he stole the love of Galavant’s life, Madalena.

Why you should watch it?

  • A witty and charming parody of fairy tales.
  • A one of a kind, musical journey.
  • A theme song you just can’t stop humming!

 

Ash vs Evil Dead

IMDB Synopsis: Ash has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead until a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind and Ash becomes mankind’s only hope.

Why you should watch it?

  • It’s Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams!
  • It’s Sam Raimi making Evil Dead!
  • It has all the campy goodness of the original movies!

 

Quantico

IMDB Synopsis: A look at the lives of young FBI recruits training at the Quantico base in Virginia when one of them is suspected of being a sleeper terrorist.

Why you should watch it?

  • Binge watch material.
  • Despite the unwarranted criticism, Priyanka Chopra actually does a good job.
  • Brain drain at it’s finest.

 

Other Space

IMDB Synopsis: It is the year 2105… a young, inexperienced and highly flawed crew embarks on a routine exploratory space mission. Suddenly, their ship, the UMP Cruiser, is drawn through a portal into a different, mysterious universe. With no maps, no contact, and no way back home, Captain Stewart Lipinski, First Officer/Stewart’s-Older-Sister Karen Lipinski and their crew have to learn to work together, all while dealing with mysterious space clouds, food and fuel shortages, robot rebellions, folds in time, and the occasional alien attack.

Why you should watch it?

  • Paul Feig. This is his first show since Freaks & Geeks.
  • It’s pure Sci-Fi comedic goodness.
  • The actor portraying the lead character is called Karan!

 

  • Atul

    Not to forget Narcos.

  • You should try and watch tvf pitchers too. There’s a reason why its rated 9.5 on imdb and the way it has been presented is quiet commendable. Though its an Indian show yet it has been able to achieve a great response. The shows which you have listed are the ones you watch. Aren’t they?

    • We watch a lot more than just the shows we’ve listed here, these are just some of the shows we binged on in 2015.

      I’ve seen TVF Pitchers. It’s a nice show but I definitely don’t think it’s worth 9.5, maybe about an 8 at best. It’s certainly binge-worthy though and pretty well known in India. We’ve tried to go for shows that not too many people here watch, broadening horizons and what not! 🙂

      Do you watch any of the shows we’ve listed?
