Say what you may about its final season, Game of Thrones still isn’t anyone’s mate. Since 2011, thanks to the show, fans worldwide have been privy to high-quality entertainment, the best in decades, so I’ll be damned if I let one polarizing season mess things up so much I don’t give honor to whom its due:
Game of Thrones is RR’s show of the decade! 👑
Now that we’re done with that, here are the top 20 TV shows that made 2019 awesome for us.
PS: This list includes miniseries, traditional TV series and web-series, and are arranged in no particular order.
1. Four Weddings and a Funeral – Hulu
This miniseries presented a heartfelt, self-contained story about love and loss. It’s n exceptional watch.
2. Euphoria s1 – HBO
Teen angst has never been well captured as HBO did it with this one. Expect lots of sex, drugs and all other crazy teen stuff.
3. Watchmen – HBO
A lot of people are calling this the show of the decade; for a show that premiered just two months ago, that’s pretty commendable. If you haven’t yet, you should watch Regina King kick-ass the HBO way.
4. When they see us – Netflix
There was a time in America when racial injustice didn’t receive as much backlash as it does today; this show takes us back to those perilous times and how four men eventually got compensated for losing their youthful days to an unjust system.
5. Sex Education – Netflix
Gillian Anderson is sexy and we now know it very much, thank you.
6. Chernobyl – HBO
Although one of the biggest disasters to have occured, not much was known about it; this show’s changed that.
7. The Mandalorian – Disney +
Pedro Paschal is having the time of his life playing really fun characters. Though Mando might not seem like it, he’s been having twice his normal fun since Baby Yoda came into his life.
8. Undone – Amazon Prime
The shooting technic used to create this live-action-animation easily makes it one of the best shows of this year. Then, factor in its strong story and cast performance, you’ve got a big winner.
9. See – Apple TV
If you thought Jason Momoa’s awesomeness had peaked out playing Khal Drogo and Aquaman, wait to you meet Baba Voss, his fiercest yet.
10. The Morning Show – Apple TV
Jennifer Aniston is back on TV as Alex Levy. I can tell you one thing though, she’s no Rachel.
11. Barry s2 – HBO
Bill Hader continues to impress as Barry. He’s on fire and so is his character.
12. The Hot Zone – Nat Geo
Ebola is a disease that’s always wiped out large number of people whenever it reappears. This is a trip to one of its earlier occurrence in history.
13. Evil s1 – CBS
Our current world is inherently evil and CBS has found a way to phone-in to make a truly drama from these happenings. If you didn’t like Mike Colter during his time as Luke Cage, then you should like him here as a priest-in-training.
14. Swamp Thing s1 – DC Universe
Although this show got cancelled, it still remains one of the best things to come out of 2019. It’s a pity its strong story and cast performance couldn’t save it from issues behind the scenes.
15. The Boys – Amazon Prime
What will be said of 2019 if we don’t mention the show that gave us the best instance of what it’d be like if Superman and the rest of the Justice League were evil? Nothin good.
16. How to Get Away with Murder – ABC
The current season 6 might be its weakest, but the love I’ve got for the show just wouldn’t let me not include it on this list. I’m sorry.
17. Fleabag s2 – BBC One
Fleabag is hilarious, entertaining, and mostly educative. It’s obvious a lot of work went into the crafting of this piece of art; great writing, awesome acting, and a very believable world; definitely worth all the hype.
18. Doom Patrol s1 – DC Universe
Another DC offering that really surprised me. Just like Legends of Tomorrow, this show knows it’s stupid and embraces it well.
19. Stranger Things s3 – Netflix
Allow your mind to be blow again by Eleven and her crew of merry men and women.
20. Carnival Row s1 – Amazon Prime
No doubt, 2019 was a good year for Amazon. This Orlando Bloom/ Cara Delevingne lead fairytale fantasy also helped make it so.
Honorable mentions: The Crown; Love, Death & Robots; The Terror; Good Omens; Mindhunter s2; Emergence; AHS: 84; Godfather of Harlem; Succession; A discovery of Witches; Stranger Things; Killing Eve s2; The Politician s1; Agents of SHIELD s6; All Rise s1.
