4. True Blood
True Blood, it was a fantasy before its release for all fans of the series Six Feet Under, waiting to see on the screen the new project of its creator Alan Ball. Both the report immediately, go to Six Feet Under to True Blood without excessively violent transition as the universe, the tone, the characters and the seriousness of the story are different.
Quick Pitch: since the invention of “True Blood”, a blood substitute, vampires attempt to integrate among humans more or less following their laws while remaining faithful to their own “hierarchy”, while ‘others scoff.
5. The lost room

6. Death note

Raito soon learns what terrible powers include this book: anyone whose name is written in the Death Note are expected to die within 40 seconds after.
Enjoyable time for a few episodes, Death Note soon to become entangled in its own scrolls. Very quickly, the pitch confesses his weaknesses, including the lack of players searched – Light, is ultimately a nasty high greenhouse , and “L” autistic savant-like ape. So, obviously, the plot gets bogged down. There quite a few attempts to give the story more complex changes, but they only lead to a huge (and inexplicable) hollow throughout several episodes. The rut last task is to renew without casting back the original recipe. Description: the characters are less charismatic and less time-consuming frame as already seen. Remains the final foregone outcry and the prince of evil. Too bad the mix runs short.
7. Game of Thrones

This is a saga of a fantasy world reminiscent of medieval Europe in which magic and fantasy have a small proportion (almost absent in the first season), indeed the emphasis is on the political and relationships between the characters. Several households (the Baratheon, the Lannisters, the Starks, the Greyjoy, Tully’s) face in a struggle for power and for the honor after a suspicious death of a high dignitary of the court. Parallel to this the last descendants of the House Targaryen (fallen dynasty throne after a revolution led by other families) tries to rally to their cause the barbaric Khal Drogo army to regain power.
8. Dead Set
Currently in my phase “I watch / read anything related to zombies,” I discussed this series after all the rave reviews I had read everywhere.
Well, I am obliged to say that I left on my hunger and I keep a bitter taste in the mouth. So yes, the subject is (somewhat) original but there really too many negatives which, in bulk: sometimes illogical reactions of the characters. The action scenes with a cameraman who filmed Parkinson (and other detractors of Cloverfield Blair Witch, this is not a series that will change your mind!) The end is surprising (even if it is the most logical) . In short, all I’m looking forward to season 2 of “The Walking Dead”, as I am expecting that this mini-series ends.
