TV-recommendations

Any very addictive tv shows  to recommend to me?

I’m looking for a new tv show to start. I’m not looking for anything specific(drama, suspense, action, etc) but I’d like to know what are some of the tv shows u could not help but binge watch? Or if you could not binge watch it(because it was still airing or because unlike me well…you actually have a life…), just some tv shows that you find/found very addictive to watch?


Thanks!

Sense8 is my life

I thought this show would be another one of those shows that sound good, and start off good, but make me stop watching halfway through.  I was so wrong.  Yesterday I started watching this show, and there’s no words to describe how amazing it is.  You absolutely HAVE to watch it.  And here’s some reasons why:

Why you should watch Sweet and Vicious

What is this show about ?: Campus rape and two girls who decide to punish the rapists

Who are these girls?:

We have Jules. She alternates between being a stone cold badass that can beat up men twice her size and an awkward lovable dork that’s a bit lost

Then we have Ophelia. A computer nerd and the campus weed dealer

Ophelia lives her own rather comfortable chill life until one night she stumbles upon Jules beating the crap out of a rapist. Their first meeting is intense

Ophelia is immediately intrigued and starts snooping around trying to uncover who is the campus vigilante. She quickly discovers her identity and tries to annoy her. Jules is not amused

This naturally makes Ophelia even more intrigued. She finally breaks down Jules defense and after some really messed up stuff they decide to partner up

Are there any other interesting characters?:

Yes. We have

Kennedy: Jules’s best friend and one of those rare people who really have their life together. She is really worried about Jules who’s been acting suspiciously and is trying her best to take care of her

and Harris: Opehlia’s best friend who just wants to become a lawyer and spends most of his time eye rolling at Ophelia’s insane computer and weed stunts and having her back

I just saw that it’s an MTV show. Please tell me it’s not some dumb humor: Nope. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not some dark drama. There are fun and light moments but they also show how heavy this topis is and how girls are dealing with it

Why isn’t it more popular on tumblr?: Probably due to bad marketing. Not enough people are giving it a chance. Here is the trailer


Seriously watch it. It’s awesome

Little Witch Academia characters, a summary:
  • Looks like a cinnamon roll but could actually kill you: Akko
  • Looks like they could kill you but is actually a cinnamon roll: Diana
  • Looks like a cinnamon roll and is actually a cinnamon roll: Lotte
  • Looks like they could kill you and would actually kill you: Sucy
  • The sinnamon roll: Shiny Chariot
A RECOMMENDATION

I have come here to recommend a TV show that recently got me to fall in another fan-base… lmao, I’m so digging this thing that I’m planning to get myself involved in anything they throw at us! So let me introduce you to the thing.

THUNDERBOLT FANTASY

Starting with the bad-ass name, it’s a piece of art… I tell you… battles are amazing, the movements are incredible, maybe the lack of facial emotion is something that bothered me at first, but heck… it became so natural after 2 or 3 episodes… I started to imagine their expressions just by seeing the characters movements and voice acting.

Oh… you might be confused right now if you haven’t seen it yet? Lemme explain why I put it that way.

IT’S A PUPPETS SHOW

Just look at the smooth movements, the precision, the timing… 

I can’t even begin to explain how exquisite the show is.

It has everything I look in anime…

Just keep reading~ it contains a few spoilers and what not… I’ll try to keep it down so not much is said… but you were warned!

Cool battle moves with good camera angles

Good looking character’s that can kick your ass anytime. The woman here is a Demon that specializes in Necromancy. Plus Sayaka Ohara is the voice actress <3

Well developed Protagonist, with character development well done and fit for the story plot and the historic ambient. Meet Tanhi (My new waifu lol) She ain’t any princess in distress, she can kick yo ass and be gorgeous at it.

Just look at her go, she swings that sword just as perfect as any of the male characters.

The show has lots of ANGST and PLOT TWISTS… it’s just the kind of deal I love in my shows… leaves me uncertain to everything until the very end. It’s the first time I had such a hard time predicting what would happen the next episode.

For being a tv show to attempts to do everything modern action movies and anime do with just puppets it has a lot more action, story development and production effects than any of the modern media.

^^^^^thi is how they handle the puppets^^^^^Pretty cool ain’t it?

Anyways… this show was written by the dude that was behind of the visual novel Saya no Uta and the anime’s Psycho-Pass and Fate/Zero (Gen Urobuchi). Music scores were in charge of Hiroyuki Sawano (Shingeki no Kyojin, Ao no Exorcist, Kill la Kill, Owari no Seraph, Nanatsu no Taizai, etc) OST IS GOLD!!!

OTHER INTERESTING NOTES

It’s a collaboration between Japanese companies Nitroplus and Good Smile Company along with Taiwanese puppet production company Pili International Multimedia.

The show is currently available in 3 languages: Taiwanese, Mandarin Chinese and Japanese.

It’s also being adapted into a manga written by Gen Urobuchi and illustrated by Yui Sakuma.

All main seiyuus are pretty well known: 
· Sayaka Ohara (Yuuko Ichihara / Layla Hamilton)
· Kousuke Toriumi (Kiba Inuzuka / Szayel Aporro / Junpei Iori)
· Junichi Suwabe (Fuma Monou / Archer / Grimmjow Jeagerjaques / Undertaker)
· Mai Nakahara (May Wong / Kurenai Maria / Juvia Lockser)

Anyways… if you’d like, please give it a chance! I assure you the time is worth it! Just be sure to give it a shot until the end =) as the story progresses it’s get more interesting and entertaining!

I thought to compile a list of some TV dramas that are similar to/might be enjoyed by those who like Home Fires. I’ve broken it down into periods but some do overlap so I have put them under the category they first start off in. 

c.World War I

c.Interwar Period

c. World War II

c.Post-World War II

These are just a few & feel free to suggest any if you want.

Here is a list of great anime I recommend highly, please feel free to add on for people looking for a new series to get into!

I honestly don’t even care if this gets 1 note this was really fun to make

(Shoutout to @zsphoenix and @the-impossible-sasstronaut for edits)

Last minute correction: Toby isn’t stated as an alcoholic in canon, that’s just how I perceived his character, whoops

We know you guys love the Book Concierge – so do we! – but if you’ve still got Christmas shopping to do, and you want to branch out beyond just books, take a look at our Read, Watch, Binge! series from this summer – hundreds of cross-platform recommendations for books, comics, movies, TV, podcasts and more (working on that project is how I discovered the My Dad Wrote a Porno podcast, which is sheer bat-bananas genius.

We did three separate lists, based on movies, books, and TV – so have a look, and maybe you’ll find something as utterly magical as my new favorite podcast!

WATCH EYEWITNESS TOMORROW NIGHT 10 PM USA NETWORK!!!! It really really needs more views to get a second season, don’t even do this for me, do it for the story, the representation, the importance of real shows that show genuinely good characters that involve common issues that we deal with daily… look my descriptions above that I sent to my friend is true, there is also bullying, homophobia, and drug issues. It’s a really great show. Please watch if you can, binge watch the old episodes. ENJOY THIS ART!

tv shows that I 11/10 recommend (that aren’t as big as they should be);

By aren’t as big as they should be I mean no one I know watches them

- SKAM (Norwegian show about high school - season 3 is bae af)

- Lucifer (show about the devil on vacay in LA- about my smol devil child who’s an all-deserving bean - bonus- mentions how Trump is going to hell and other quirks like so)

- How To Get Away With Murder (a show that rips your fucking hearts out don’t even bother with it)

- Brooklyn Nine-Nine (show about just some babies getting together acting like police no joke they’re precious)

- Yuuri!!! On Ice (a show about my precious child meeting his idol coughandhasasupercreepyobsessionnahjustkiddingseriouslythohegotthesamedogcough and being super in love together while ice-skating)

- The Magicians (super underrated but about dramatic people who all have sex with each other at some point and there’s some other-worldy magical world blah blah blah)

*edit*

-The Get Down (PLeasee just watch this awe-inspiring show based in the Bronx 1977 about diversity and so full of goodness and pureness and music and drama and love where you learn the only way to impress the love of your life your crush is by showing them your pigeons) no seriously please just fucking watch this magnificent thing

-Eyewitness (I mean if you don’t want to be killed on a weekly basis don’t watch this but otherwise yh great show definitely recommend)


new/upcoming british tv recs

see posts 1-9 of general british tv recs here (link to post nine that includes links to all the others): http://jacnaylor.tumblr.com/post/156053744834/british-tv-recs-9

1. Cormoran Strike

Now most of these don’t have definite release dates yet, so for this one you still have time to read the books. Because for those of you who don’t know, this is Jk Rowling’s private detective books. A stellar cast lead by Tom Burke - who played the miserable yet enigmatic Athos on The musketeers, and who will probably be as equally miserable and enigmatic in this. He’s joined by Holliday Grainger who’s always a+. Cormoran and Robin solve cases and generally get into scrapes. I always love a good crime drama, and this one looks to have a really cool dynamic!

2. The good karma hospital

So this one actually is airing atm, and we’re about 4 eps in. Following young doctor Ruby Walker as she travels to work in india after her real life in england falls apart. Great locations, funny side characters and a lot of silly adventures, this one is a fun treat for a sunday night when you just want something with sunshine!

3. The replacement

This is airing the 28th of feb on bbc1. It follows Ellen (aka the wonderful Morven Christie), who discovers she is pregnant after securing a big contract with her architect firm. She hires Paula (the also wonderful Vicky Mclure) to shadow her so that she can be her maternity cover. Only Ellen becomes increadingly convinced that Paula is trying to push her out completley. Looks like a really gripping thriller where no one is what they seem, and it’s focused on the lives of two different women, which is always a bonus.

4. SS-GB

This just aired it’s first ep, and it’s a brooding, gritty period drama imagining what a 1940′s britain would be like if Germany had won the battle of britain and thus invaded. Following a very raspy voiced cop as he toes the line between peacekeeping and resistance, it looks like the action is gonna keep building!

5. Prime suspect 1973

So if you haven’t seen prime suspect, it’s one of those shows everyone used to watch when it was on. This might have been mostly to do with Helen Mirren being an amazing lead, so there’s a rec for you. But this one is the same concept as Endeavour (the inspector morse prequels) where they take a look at her earlier life. Because before Jane Tennison was a DCI solving crimes and putting up with sexism she was a WPC solving crimes and putting up with even more sexism. Looks like it’s going to be a cool little period piece with crime and a strong leading lady. Airing on itv on the 2nd of march.

6. Britannia

No definite release date yet, this looks like its going to be a big one. Following in the footsteps of game of thrones and the last kingdom, this is an epic following an ensemble during the roman/celtic battles and divides. A great cast, I’m always on the lookout for more historical drama.

7. The moorside

This two parter just aired about a week or two ago, and man this is a tough one. I don’t know how it is in other places, but ask anyone here over about twenty and they will know the story of Shannon Matthews. In 2008, a little girl went missing for a month only to be found alive - it’s what came out about her abduction after that shocked everyone. This is all true and it’s still a close subject to a lot of people (they didn’t film it on the real moorside estate because they thought it would still be too distressing). This miniseries follows a woman in the community who lead the community marches and search parties. This might get to me more because I remember this happening, but knowing the ending makes things a little harder to watch. This is emotional and its the nearest we’ll get to what went on. It’s sad but there’s also a sort of hopeful message, because this is a story about how a lower class community defied expectations and banded together, only to find out they had all been lied to. An important watch even if you know the story or not.
