A New List Of TV Shows You May Have Missed
Check out our brand new list of excellent TV shows that may have missed and slipped under the radar for some.
No Man’s Land
As tense as they come, No Man’s Land is a terrific production between France & Turkey. It deals with a group of female Kurdish resistance fighters who dedicate their lives on the frontline fighting ISIS.
After seeing a video of a suicide bombing online, Antoine drops everything and goes in search of his presumably dead sister, Anna.
Season one has just wrapped after 8-episodes. A very powerful series with excellent character development, making you understand the choices of each individual character and how they arrived at where they are.
Little Drummer Girl
Another one I am late to the game with. Little Drummer Girl is directed by none other than Park Chan Wook (Oldboy). Starring Florence Pugh, Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Shannon
An actress is recruited by a secret spy agency to infiltrate a terrorist organisation. Her role: to become the ex-girlfriend of a wanted terrorist and gather intel.
Full of top-notch performances but yet again Florence Pugh steals the show. After her intense performance as Danni in Midsommar, she continues to show growing-strength in every role she is choosing. Without a doubt, my favourite actress at the minute.
Based on a novel by Stephen King and starring Jason Bateman. The Outsider was a hugely popular HBO series that got released last year.
Multiple eyewitnesses claim to have seen a blood-soaked killer in the same area a brutal killing of a young boy has taken place. The cops soon realise that something otherworldly and more sinister is at work.
A solid series that does sort of drag out a bit but still well worth your time and commitment.
Sharp Objects follows reporter, Camille. After fleeing her small town, its horrible memories and her controlling mother, she is forced back home to cover the story of a murdered kid. It doesn’t take long to notice why she left as her memories start to flood back which is deeply affecting her mental state.
In a way, Sharp Objects reminded me a little of Martha Marcy May Marlene in the way the flashbacks are told.
I just fucking knew that it was going to be bleak (I mean, look at that poster…deranged!). No monsters, no zombies, ghosts or vampires, this award-winning series deals with something way scarier than any fictional monster – humans…and based on a shocking true story as well.
Patricia Arquette plays the mother of Gypsy Rose, a young kid who has every sort of illness imaginable. She is wheelchair-bound, fed through a tube in her stomach and has to sleep with oxygen masks covering her whole face. As well as all of the above-mentioned, she has serious life-threatening allergies. But, maybe her daughter ain’t as sick as she seems
As well as Patricia Arquette giving us a terrifying performance as Dee Dee Blanchard, Joey King, who plays the daughter, Gypsy Rose is every bit as good. Both of them together is one of the strongest TV duos in recent memory.
That’s it for this list of TV Shows You May Have Missed. Hope we have hooked you up with some nice binge-worthy material. As always, thanks for reading.
