Arrow’s third season has had us absolutely hooked so far. We thought the comic-book show couldn’t top its incredible second season but so far it has. The first episode delivered the huge shock of Sara Lance’s (Caity Lotz) murder and the mystery as to who killed her is still on-going. With a strong ensemble cast and gripping stories it’s a definite contender.
James Spader and Megan Boone are one of our favourite TV duos as Reddington and Liz. The crime drama has really found its feet in its second season so far and the first 8 episodes have more than delivered. Whilst we still don’t know why Red is so protective of Liz, we’ve been offered plenty of other answers this season including the fate of Liz’s duplicitous husband Tom (Ryan Eggold)
Peter Capaldi made his debut as the Doctor alongside returning companion Clara (Jenna Coleman). The critics and fans have loved Capaldi’s interpretation of the Doctor and the show continues to be a huge success for BBC One. It has a loyal following across the world too!
The period drama has been one of the biggest shows ITV has ever had and it’s a huge success in the US too. The upstairs/downstairs drama features superb performances by stars such a Maggie Smith and Hugh Bonneville. The fifth series continued to attract huge ratings and the countdown is already on for the Christmas special.
The superhero show was introduced through the second season of Arrow and it debuted in the US to huge ratings for The CW. The adventures of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and S.T.A.R. Labs have had us hooked and we’re excited about the upcoming two episode crossover with Arrow. This show has definite potential.
Game of Thrones
The fantasy drama has so much buzz that it’s impossible to ignore. Its fourth season was it’s biggest yet and had critics and fans falling over themselves to sing its praises. With a huge cast and loads of storylines, Game of Thrones really is an all-consuming show and with the news of season 5 and 6 already confirmed there’s plenty more drama to enjoy!
How To Get Away With Murder
The latest show to come from Shonda Rhimes’ production company Shondaland. Viola Davis stars as ball-busting lawyer Annalise Keating who is also a professor. After picking 5 students to work for her firm, Annalise has found herself in the midst of a murder mystery after he cheating, no-good husband is murdered. Powerful performances and lots of buzz makes this a serious contender.
Masters of Sex
Bill Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) set up shop on their own in the second season of Masters of Sex as they continued their study into sex. The drama is masterfully acted with plenty of twists and turns. As the duo got deeper into their study, their own participation turned into a full-on affair and we loved every single minute.
Strictly Come Dancing
It’s one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, shows on UK TV and we love it every single year. The Ballroom show had a bit of a facelift this year with Tess Daly taking over from Sir Bruce Forsyth and Claudia Winkleman stepping into the role of permanent co-host. It’s the closest competition we’ve seen in years and we love this year’s batch of celebs.
The Walking Dead
The zombie drama hit its fifth season this year and it’s continuing to break records. We think the show is better than ever and a big improvement on the hit-and-miss fourth season. The midseason finale is nearly here and we’re looking forward to Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and co doing whatever it takes to rescue Beth (Emily Kinney) and Carol (Melissa McBride).
