Finding a TV show you enjoy can be harder than finding a friend. There are so many on right now, that it would take a lot of time to sift through all of them. Worry not, that’s why we are here! We’ve got ten of the current most popular TV shows, but if you’re interested in the most popular TV series of all time, then head over to that article and find one that you think you would like. Here we go, from the funny to the scary, these are the best TV shown that are on right now.
Californication is about a hedonistic author is search for nothing in particular. All Hank wants to do is live his life and enjoy it. I must say that we’ve all got something to learn from Hank Moody and that Californication is a great show that is down to its last season. It’s going to be on soon, so keep an eye on it!
9. Modern Family
Modern Family is one of the funniest things ever to be on TV! The characters are great and their lines are extremely funny. It’s also one of the few shows to present the life of a homosexual couple, which makes us love it even more than we already do. And Ed O’Neil has come a long way from Married: With Children! Well done!
8. The Big Bang Theory
Who thought that a show about nerds could be so funny and loved by some many people? The Big Bang Theory has been delighting us with its jokes for seven seasons and if you’re not familiar with it, then we urge you to buy it right now! Sheldon Cooper is insanely hilarious.
7. Orange is the New Black
Out of all these popular TV shows, Orange is the New Black is the only original Netflix series. It’s about a young, preppy woman who is sent to jail and her life on the inside. It’s sad, funny, outrageous and lovely. It’s something we highly recommend and now that season two is still filming, we reckon you’ve got plenty of time to watch season 1.
6. American Horror Story
If you like horror movies, then American Horror Story is the best horror TV show we’ve seen in a while. The first season was great, the second, not so much and the third makes us jump from our seats! And that’s exactly what we want from a horror movie. Go on, give it a try if you dare!
5. The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead has many fans and for good reason – it’s simply brilliant. If you like zombies and you’ve not seen it, then there is something wrong with this picture. How did you manage to get on with your life?! We have one minor qualm with it: the zombies could have been a little bit fiercer.
HBO’s Girls has been compared to Sex and the City, but take it from us, there’s nothing similar between the two. Lena Dunham managed to create quirky and lovable characters that are smart and fun. This show is much more intelligent than Sex and the City and if you like that sort of thing, then give it a try and we promise you won’t regret it.
3. Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones has a little bit of something for everyone: some fantasy for the nerd within, some dragons, sex and enough murder and swords to keep you glued to your TV for a whole hour. Series four is about to begin, so hurry up and see the other three so you’ll be up to speed with what’s going on!
BBC’s Sherlock is the most popular Sherlock Holmes adaptation ever. The story is set in modern day London and the one hour and a half episodes are riveting. Benedict Cumberbatch is amazing as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman created a modern Dr. Watson that we’d all love for a friend. There are only three series with three episodes each, but we’ve recently learned that BBC has commissioned series 4. Filming will most likely begin next year, but there’s no news about that just yet.
1. True Detective
True Detective is something the world hasn’t seen in a while. Not since Twin Peaks did we get to see such complexity in a television show. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are a pair of Louisiana detectives on the trail of a serial killer. Sounds simple, but you’ll find out if you decide to watch it, that things are never simple when it comes to HBO.
Are you watching any of these popular TV shows? What’s your favorite? We strongly recommend you give them a try, they’re all pretty brilliant!
