The last decade has rewarded us with a great deal of excellent TV shows, with numerous hits having graced our screens. From Game of Thrones to Breaking Bad and everything in between, there are now plenty of different boxsets which you can choose from to give you countless hours of viewing pleasure. Some truly magnificent US TV boxsets are now available, which offer a number of different genres and shows, so they are well worth exploring, no matter what your tastes. Here are some which you may be interested in.
This critically acclaimed, futuristic fantasy has been incredibly well received globally. It takes place in a fictitious theme park called Westworld, where wealthy customers can enjoy a Wild West adventure experience, and robots play a central role in facilitating their adventures. Exploring the very current themes of artificial intelligence and sentience, this is unmissable, not to mention incredibly well-acted, with Anthony Hopkins giving an excellent performance. If you like sci-fi mixed with mystery, drama and a bit of action, then this is undoubtedly for you.
Another critically acclaimed series, Vikings takes place in multiple locations throughout the seasons, initially documenting the journey of main character Ragnar as he travels to different locations in pursuit of adventure, blood and riches.
This is definitely not for the faint of heart, as it contains extremely visceral action packed battles, but it also contains much deeper themes like ritual, family connections and politics. If you’re known to be a history buff, then you might find this one fascinating, although the intriguing storyline is enough to keep everyone happy.
If you’re looking for something a little more light hearted and less gory than Vikings, Charmed is a great option. It follows three modern day witches living in America, all of whom must cope with integrating into modern day American society whilst using their powers to fight demons.
With 8 full seasons there are many different storylines and characters which you can get your teeth into, so if you like fantasy adventure and supernatural themes, this is worth a watch.
