Inspired by one of our recent discussions on ChristCore React-O-Vision, we rounded up some of our favorite television shows airing right now. In no particular order, here are our top choices in television:
Silicon Valley flies in the face of audience expectations, often undercutting the stereotypical “underdog” story. A show about competition in the tech industry, and the difficulty of starting your own company in the modern world, nerds will love the bizarre humor in Silicon Valley. The team behind Pied Piper never gets what they want and neither does the audience. Catch Silicon Valley Sundays on HBO.
Set in the 1980s, the Jennings family appears to be an ordinary American family, However, in the confines of their home, the marriage between Elizabeth and Philip is centered on espionage and lies. Torn between the country they live in and the country they’re sworn to protect, the couple battles with the mundane life of being American and the life of a Russian spy. Catch The Americans Wednesdays on FX.
Of course, how could we forget Game of Thrones? Becoming one of the biggest shows in recent years, Game of Thrones follows the struggle of various families for the Iron Throne. Filled with betrayal, love, zombies, and dragons, Game of Thrones definitely scratches that fantasy-genre itch that some may have. Note: Game of Thrones contains explicit language and nudity. Watch it Sundays on HBO.
A surprisingly well-crafted show focused on the inner-workings of a cult movement, The Path stars Hugh Dancy (Hannibal), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), and Michelle Monaghan. This intense drama gradually explains the belief system behind the Meyerist movement and shows what lengths its believers are willing to go to spread their movement. The Path is only available on Hulu.
If you loved Breaking Bad as much as we did, you can explore more of that world in Better Call Saul. The series explores the world before Saul Goodman and Walter White, following the life of Jimmy McGill. With some Breaking Bad cameos and tie-ins, Better Call Saul has a promising future. Watch it on AMC.
The Night Manger stars Tom Hiddleston (Thor), Hugh Laurie (House), and Elizabeth Debicki (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.). The beautiful cinematography of the mini-series is one of its standout features, which is based on John le Carré’s novel of the same name. The thrilling drama finds Jonathan Pine entering a dangerous world of corruption to capture a dangerous man responsible for terrible crimes. Airing on Tuesdays 10/9c on AMC.
