I’m a sucker for TV shows. I find it sad that I have a long list of them that I don’t seem to have enough time to watch. But no matter now busy I get, I try to watch or at least catch-up on some of my personal favorites. They may not be the best ones by other people’s standards. They’re mostly the ones that got me hooked enough to make time to watch them when I can. This 2016, here’s the list of my must-watch shows in order of release month:
The Walking Dead – February
Watching this AMC TV show since its first season has been an emotional roller coaster ride. To say that I’m too invested on it already to stop would be an understatement. There have been several frustrating twists and turns that made me question the wisdom suffering from all the emotional upheavals I seem to go though when watching it. But I’m still hooked. And with the promise of finally seeing an evil character in the comic-books come to TV screen life this season it would be fair to say that I’d be watching every episode with bated breath.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – March
I’m a Marvel Universe fan. Despite its somewhat disappointing first run, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. still had enough of interesting points in it that got me hooked. I like the characters and their special abilities as well as the problems they need to resolve in the process.
The Night Manager – April
I’ve heard so much about The Night Manager from a UK-based friend. It’s good to know that it has finally reached our shores. It stars Tom Hiddleston as a soldier who’s tasked with a covert mission and Hugh Laurie who takes on the role of an arms dealer. I absolutely love the latter and I’m also a fan of the former so I’ll definitely be following this spy series.
Game of Thrones – April
Watching the series is like reliving all the drama I’ve lived through when reading the books. I’ve become jaded in watching this show at some point. But I kept coming back because there seems to be enough intrigues to keep me hooked. I’m also looking forward to finally watching how things I haven’t read about yet will unfold.
Person of Interest – May
I like crime dramas and Person of Interest dishes it out in equal measure with the science fiction angle. I’m somewhat concerned about the possibility of having a surveillance system similar to The Machine out there and what that would mean on people’s privacy. This TV show hasn’t been as popular as it deserves to be although I have to say that I’m admitted biased about my views on this. Needless to say, I’ll be sure to watch every episode this season.
