The TV series is the biggest diversion. And if they’re actually decent – I ‘d go as far as to say they ‘re a window into another fascinating universe that will make you forget about your daily challenges for a while, and provide top-quality entertainment that will inspire you and keep you going for days to come. The only problem these days is that so many shows are on, but very few are really worth it. That’s why we’re going to share with you today a list of mystery shows that are really good and worth the time you spend watching them.
1. Sherlock (BBC)
The letters of appreciation I would write for this series will fill the BBC offices, and the upsetting scenarios I’ve made in my mind to make them film more of the series will make the producers Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat consider changing their home addresses. It’s based on Conan Doyle ‘s novels, but it’s modernized in a clever way that still preserves the feel of the classic detective, but makes him more relatable (just as a high-functioning sociopath can be) and at home in the present century. The scripts are smart, fast-paced, and will pull you from the first line. The camera work and the set are impeccable. And, of course, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman make acting look simple, and their special chemistry sends sparks out of the frame. Once you watch this series, you immediately become an addict asking for more.
2. True Detective
If you like the mystery show, this one should get your approval stamp. Seasons are not related to each other, so you don’t have to watch any of them if you don’t want or don’t have time for a long TV show. Yet the first season with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson is a must-see. It’s dark, it’s very real, and it gives you a history of two investigators who have been investigating a murder for many years. I don’t want to give up the storyline, but it’s a good show and a long list of awards, including Emmys, Golden Globes and Baftas, speak for themselves.
The plot of this series is based around a group of people who, while traveling from Jamaica to New York on a simple journey, have acquired a collection of super-powers. When they land, they find out that somehow, while on the plane, they’ve skipped 5 years ahead and their life circumstances have changed. They now need to find a way to deal with this and learn how to survive in this new world, though their talents don’t make things any easier, and the cult that follows is growing around them.
4. Big Little Lies
Sudden murder happens at a charitable fundraiser in the idyllic town of Monterey. A group of rich mothers are unlikely to be detectives attempting to solve the mystery of this murder in order to keep their children safe. It’s beautifully filmed, the cast is full of stars, and California ‘s views are about to die. Think about it, will Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Zoe Kravitz, and Shailene Woodley agree to be in the same series if it wasn’t good? Hey, our argument is exactly.
5. Altered Carbon
This futuristic Netflix cyberpunk mystery series that is indeed mind-blowing. The events are set in the future when death no longer poses a permanent threat. By being placed in a new body, you will get a second chance to live. The main hero ‘s mind has been imprisoned for years and now he’s offered a chance to live again, but he has to solve a murder in exchange for that. It is odd, it is rare, it certainly worth your time.
A South Korean drama series about a detective, who due to a surgery in his childhood has lost all ability to feel emotions. He’s ruled by logic and hard evidence, which is a great thing for his job, he’s a true professional, the best of the best when it comes to being a detective. But his recent case is very unusual because it happens in between him being hired by someone and arriving at the scene. A female police officer is working the case with him, helping him to solve the mystery and in the process make him a better man. Sounds like a very interesting take on the classic Sherlock story, but it’s South Korean so you know it’ll have great twists.
