TV SHOWS TO WATCH DURING THIS SEASON

Well during this pandemic everyone of us are inside our house not knowing how to pass the time.

So here are a few shows that you could watch which is worthwhile.

  1. TERRACE HOUSE

I’m a Terrace House addict and the latest drop of Terrace House 2019-2020 episodes couldn’t have come at a better time. 

Those in the know already understand: Terrace House is self care. It’s mindfulness in TV form. A goldfish bowl for human beings. Imagine a Japanese Big Brother stripped of all the drama and nonsense, replaced with a focus on minutiae — on everyday human actions drawn large.

If you haven’t watched a single episode of this show I’m insanely jealous. You have so much quality TV to watch. Start with Terrace House: Boys and Girls in the City, then move on to Terrace House: Opening New Doors. You have so much to consume!

2.Doctor Who

The show originally ran from 1963 to 1989 so I’m optimistic it’ll outlast whatever lockdown has to throw at us. I even made a spreadsheet listing all the episodes, so I know that if I watch one a day, I’ll go from black-and-white to color by June and I’ll finish in September 2021. 

That’s if I watch an episode a day… Yeeeah, I have not been watching an episode a day. But I can tell you that even creaky 1960s sci-fi is enormously entertaining and surprisingly thought-provoking. With even more uncanny timing, I’ve reached a 1966 episode in which the human race catches a mysterious infection. Fingers crossed for a happy ending. Doctor Who is available on Britbox in the US and UK and makes a great quarantine project*.

*This also applies to Star Trek. Or the Golden Girls. You can pick any show really — but the spreadsheet is non-negotiable.

3.Schitt’s Creek, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The Witcher and Outlander

I’m a huge fan of all these shows and have leaned on them like a crutch during the lockdown. 

My 16-year-old and I have rewatched all the seasons of Schitt’s Creek and Sabrina. Schitt’s Creek is a delight, and I’m crushed that it’s ending. The main characters are snobs but in a charming, hilarious way. And they actually start to grow as human beings through their years of misadventure, which is also satisfying. 

Sabrina’s dark twists and turns keep surprising us. Somehow the show finds the most captivating twenty-somethings in Hollywood to populate the cast.

The Witcher and Outlander play out fantastical storylines based on books that I’ve read and adored. But honestly, it’s the casting of the leading men that brings me back to these two shows again and again. And I don’t watch them with my kids.

4.The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Babylon Berlin

I didn’t get a chance to watch season 3 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel when it was released in December. So I’ve used my time to rewatch the series from the beginning and marvel at the dialogue, jokes, the sets, the costumes and how well thought-out all the characters are (Susie in Season 2 was a revelation.) Fun, fun, fun.

On the recommendation of many friends, I’ve dived into the German TV noir detective series Babylon Berlin, which is set in 1929 Berlin — a few years before the rise of Hitler. Like many new series, you need to make it through to the third episode to understand what’s going on because it’s complicated (but worthwhile). The series is based on a series of best-selling detective by German author Volker Kutscher, and I recommend watching it in German with English subtitles. The dubbed English version really loses things in translation. This is another series where the sets and costumes can transport you to another time. As the New Yorker noted in its 2018 review, Babylon Berlin was “the most expensive non-English-language [TV series] to date, with a budget of $47 million.”  It shows

And now for old times sake

Timeline 1854

It has been a long time since they left, yet it is still fresh inside my head.My only best friends John and Alex. We knew each other for a long time since my first day for my 5th grade.

Both were genius’s the only people who could compete with each other on wits. Both shared the same obsession, to travel in time. And that is when every thing started to change.

We three graduated from the same collage after which they stared to follow their dreams and me I became a doctor. I was the bread earner of the house, well basically my house which they had turned into a warzone of test tubes, apparatus and many more. Well I could be proud because my was going to be know as the house were the first time mechanics was built.

But deep down I had a fear as both had different idea for their design and their use. But they still went along.

Finally after 5 years of fighting , agreeing they finally made it. The one and only time machine in this world. Unless I am wrong. We decided not to make it public. Obviously we wanted a joy ride so we took it for an adventure

We saw the past, future, well the future was a bit bizarre but never the less it was interesting. After our return we were all happy and looked forward for our new adventure. It was like nothing could possibly go wrong. Well I wish.

It must have been 12 midnight. We heard a weird noise. Me and John woke up and ran toward the source as we guessed what the sound was.

We went to our mechanisms and someone was tampering with it. We blazed the light towards him. He was wearing a mask. John jumped towards him and started to roll around the floor. John was a strong man and he over powered the intruder. When we unmasked him we couldn’t believe it.It was Alex.

“ALEX YOU !” said I

“but why ?” asked John

A smirk came in ALEX’S face.”Think John think. why would I try to steal the machine ?” said Alex

“I wanted to sell it. obviously. Think how rich I could I get, if I sell it”

Well I guess I won’t allow you to” said John

Without any notice Alex jumped into the machine and pressed the start button. John jumped after him. The next thing that happened was spectacular and bizarre. A portal opened and they were engulfed in it. That was the last time I ever heard of them.
