1. 'The Dragon Prince'
The show is about a fantasy world where humans and elves are fighting one another. The humans pretty much stole magic from the elves and started a war. So now in the present, two human princes and a young elf find a dragon egg and take it back to its mother to try and stop their war. It’s more lighthearted than it sounds, I promise.
I am a big sucker from anything animated and anything with dragons. So, when I stumbled onto the trailer for the first season of The Dragon Prince, I pretty much knew that I would love the show. I got extra excited when I saw that it was created by the same people who were in charge of Avatar: The Last Airbender, and it did not disappoint! I really enjoyed season one, to the point that I rewatched it several times. It has an awesome storyline, great humour, REALLY likable characters, and it’s just really fun to watch! I am so glad that season two is coming so early because I cannot wait!
Historical setting, zombies, and Sense8’s Bae Doo Na. Need I say more? I will anyway. The series is about a Joseon-era Prince who is essentially sent on a suicide mission to find out about the plague that is going around the kingdom—which is essentially these zombie/vampire creatures that are controlled by a vampire king.
I have been waiting for this show to air FOR A GOOD MINUTE. I am so excited to watch it, it’s actually ridiculous. I have super high hopes for this show, and everyone I know who has seen it has loved it. I mean it’s already been confirmed for a second season so that speaks volumes.
The premise of the show is that a bunch of people in the future go out to space to make contact with aliens, but then creepy shit starts to happen and they find out something inside the ship is probably causing problems.
From what I have read so far, Nightflyers sounds like a fantasy space-drama. I am totally on board (pun intended). Although the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes have not been so great, I am still willing to give it a go and see what it’s like, and that’s mostly because of the fact that this is based on works by George R. R. Martin, who for those who don’t know is the genius behind Game of Thrones.
4. 'The Umbrella Academy'
The basic plot sounds as if six 30-something-year-olds with superpowers reunite after not seeing each other for over 10 years at the event of their adoptive father’s death.
I LITERALLY cannot stay away from superhero-themed stuff, I have a genuine problem. When I heard that it’s adapted from a comic book—EVEN BETTER! I am really intrigued about this one because I reckon it’s going to be a bit more ‘adult’ than Marvel or DC movies. I mean, I haven’t watched it yet, but that’s the vibe I got from the trailer. Plus Ellen Paige is bae.
5. 'Russian Doll'
The show follows a woman who repeatedly dies and relives the same night in an ongoing loop. The main character Nadia, played by Orange Is the New Black’s Natasha Lyonne, keeps dying at an event where she’s the guest of honour, while she’s just trying to figure what is going on.
Truth be told, I only JUST heard about this show. I had no prior knowledge of it, but I have to say, I find the premise pretty intriguing. I think this story is going to be a good mix of mystery and humour—similar to The Good Place.
I hope you enjoyed reading this, and I hope you check out these shows along with me.
