Winter is still few months away and it is that time of the year when normally networks start premiering their established shows. If you are a GoT fan then you must know – waiting is crueler than the actual suffering. So, on this pretext I am highlighting 4 shows that have already proven their mettle in Nielsen ratings and guess what ???you don’t have to wait anymore because their new season episodes have started rolling on the respective channels.
Arrow season 4
The show is centralized around Marvel universe’s billionaire vigilante Oliver Green aka Green Arrow. Into its 4th season, the show is looking forward to assembling the perfect plot for its parent network’s aspirational show Legends of tomorrow. The show creators should be applauded for a diversifying story for a talented cast developing which was not so easy. Arrow developed its fanbase meticulously over last three and half years with its surreal plots, story and fighting sequences.
Vampire diaries season 7
Vampire Diaries was one of those shows which had it all – an ensemble cast, stellar performances, iconic characters and a sweet simple story until too many bloodlines started interfering with the show’s characters and turned the frolic in Mystic Falls to a circus of supernatural abominations. This little stumble to an extent has caused a lapse in the initial sheen of the show. But, again this show has Ian Somerhalder playing Damon Salvatore to perfection which is more than a reason to give this one a consideration this season.
Homeland season 5
“The only way to come out is to go all way in” as the tagline of this season suggests; things are not gonna be easy for Carrie Mathison…(has it ever been easy for her…like ever??). This show is purely high on content with an equally striking storyline, which has helped the show bag many awards at Emmy’s. It is patriotism that binds all the nuts and screws in this show where morality is seen as a relative term. It’s not just human lives at stake but also the way of living about which the US very promptly mentions in all its business.
Supernatural season 11
Let me put it this way – “when you combine classic rock music with Chevy Impala 64 along with the super talented duo of Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as Winchester brothers, who fight from heaven to hell for keeping the earth a darkness free zone” then an enchanting series like Supernatural is born.
Like other good shows, this show also has a soul, and that soul yearns for just one thing – Family and loved ones. The Winchesters(as they are fondly called) are fighting through purgatories, evil angels, scorned demons and wicked monsters because they feel it’s their family business / hunting business which they have inherited from their father.
