In the ever-expanding landscape of television series, there are certain shows that leave an indelible mark on our hearts and minds. These series captivate audiences with their exceptional storytelling, compelling characters, and thought-provoking themes. In this blogpost, I delve into the realms of five exceptional television shows that have enthralled viewers around the world. Each of these very bingeable TV series offers a unique viewing experience, pushing the boundaries of storytelling and delivering unforgettable narratives. A record 599 original TV shows have been aired last year, up seven percent from the previous year.

1. Black Mirror

Black Mirror, created by Charlie Brooker, offers a dystopian anthology series that explores the dark side of technology and its impact on society. Each standalone episode presents a thought-provoking narrative, examining the moral and ethical implications of future advancements. Black Mirror's ability to reflect the anxieties and uncertainties of our technological age is truly remarkable. It holds a mirror up to our society, forcing us to question our dependence on technology and the potential consequences it may bring. From exploring the dark side of social media to envisioning alternative realities shaped by advanced technology, this series sparks conversations about the intersection of humanity and technology like no other. Black Mirror compels us to consider the implications of our technological choices and serves as a cautionary tale about the potential pitfalls that await us in the future. There are six seasons and while seasons 1 to 5 are brilliant, season 6 isn't.

5. House MD

House MD is an extraordinary television series that captivates viewers with its exceptional storytelling, outstanding acting performances, and a remarkable soundtrack that enhances the overall experience. Each episode presents a complex medical case that challenges the renowned diagnostician, Dr. Greg House, and his team. The success of House MD is undoubtedly indebted to the exceptional acting talent involved. Hugh Laurie's portrayal of the enigmatic Dr. House is nothing short of phenomenal. His nuanced performance captures the character's brilliance, acerbic wit, and underlying vulnerability with such authenticity that it's impossible to imagine anyone else in the role. What elevates House MD to another level is its magnificent soundtrack. The series features a carefully curated selection of music that enhances the storytelling and amplifies the emotions.
