This year has been full of surprises when it comes to TV shows in general. There were surprising twists and turns that made us cry and weep, feel the joy of happy endings and fall in love with new stories. What they all have in common is that they were the talk of this summer and the year has not still ended.
There are some TV shows coming out right now, like the side story for “The Walking Dead” titled quite provocatively “Fear the Walking Dead”. And that’s not all, the long-awaited TV adaptation of “Evil Dead” called “Ash vs. Evil Dead” will premiere at the end of October, as well as others, are bound to have you sitting on the couch all day.
The series finale brought a lot of excitement for the fans as much as the producers. It was a glorious ending to the show that lasted since 2007.For many people it was hard seeing their most beloved characters for the last time and many were left wanting for more. But most people agree it was a really good show that affected many people for many years and will sure be popular as a rewatch in the years to come.
Two and a Half Men
Undoubtedly one of the best comedy TV shows has come to an end. Throughout its airing period many things have changed, starting from Charlie Sheen’s being fired and Angus T. Jones leaving the show, but one thing has remained the same – the show’s humor. Some people liked it, some didn’t, but many are sorry to see it gone. The show’s popularity will definitely continue to captivate the people’s attention in the years to come with its satiric elements combined with extraordinary lives of main characters.
The Big Bang Theory
The Big Bang Theory is yet another comedy show that is at the top of the watch lists around the world. This year showed that its success does not seem to reduce even after 8 seasons. This group of friends has made yet another successful season full of twists and turns and more importantly, unexpected events. The season’s finale leaves us barely waiting for the next season as Leonard and Penny are to set a wedding date, and Sheldon encounters major changes in his relationship with Amy. What will happen in the next season is the thing many wonder about.
Under the Dome
Under the Dome has captivated the attention of the audience from the first episode. As a TV adaptation of Stephen King’s book people expected much and received even more. The struggles of people trapped under the dome are reminiscent to those in other TV shows like The Walking Dead (except for the walkers), where people are trapped in a place they cannot escape from. 3rd season began airing during the summer and the show, in some people’s opinions, keeps getting better and better. The mystery of the dome is finally getting revealed but not without asking even more questions about its existence.
Following the success of the latest Batman trilogy, this TV show focuses on the time before “the caped crusader” came. The show follows Commissioner James Gordon’s rise in Gotham City and the villains that will later become Batman’s archenemies have their first appearances here. Also, season 1 finale left many people interested in seeing what will happen in the next one as all hell breaks loose on the streets of Gotham as the crime families collide. It is definitely one of the shows that will make a big impact in the years to come.
Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones is a must see for all true fans of epic fantasy shows. It has been around since 2011, but this year’s 5th season finale made the headlines as one of the most popular characters seemingly died. Intrigues, political schemes, murders and deceits all make Game of Thrones what it actually is, and, of course, the final appearance of many unknown forces that are bound to unleash hell upon Westeros make people itching for the next season of noble families’ adventures. And of course, who could forget the dragons in their full-grown form.
The Walking Dead
From a comic book that is still very popular to a record-breaking TV show, The Walking Dead has left very few people uninterested. In the 5th season, we had some revelations that completely changed the path the show was taking. Still, the desire of Rick’s group to settle down and lead an ordinary life remains the focus of the show. Season 6 is coming in October and the focus of it will be Rick’s relation with his old friend Morgan as the two experienced gunners collide in the struggle for dominance.
Fear the Walking Dead
After the enormous success of The Walking Dead, the spin-off story Fear the Walking Dead seemed like a logical step. And it is finally airing. In just a few days after its initial release it has become one of the most popular TV shows of the year. Fear the Walking Dead will appear more like a prequel, as people struggle to understand the truth about the apocalypse that is going on around them. The show brings some anticipated details about the creation of The Walking Dead world and offers another way of looking at things, as main characters in this show are not experienced fighters, but teachers and social workers.
At first look, Wayward Pines seems to take us to a journey resembling “Memento.” But this TV show is much more than that, as the main character slowly discovers the truth behind the place he found himself in. He soon learns that he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive. But the tone and the way in which the plot twists and turns definitely make this story one of the most original ones of this year.
This summer has been one of the hottest in record, not only from the heat, but also because the old and the new TV shows offered us a way into the worlds we just thought could never see.
