My Top Must Watch Shows for Summer

lifestyle, trends, Uncategorized

Hey loves! I’m not a super tv watcher but I do have a few shows that I’ve been indulging in seasonally and yearly that I thought I’d share with you all. . Truth be told, I gravitate towards the hardcore, deep, suspense thriller type of stuff, so if that’s you, you’ll love these picks.

Power

If you want a show that mixes crime and law enforcement with sex and family entanglement, I strongly suggest you check out Power.  The show enters its final season this August, but if you want to start from scratch, that’s not a problem either. You’ll have tons of episodes to binge on.”Power” tells the story of James “Ghost” St. Patrick, a wealthy New York City nightclub owner who caters to the city’s elite. He wants to build an empire, turn the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there’s just one problem: Ghost is living a double life. When he is not in the club, he is the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York for a very high-level clientele. His marriage, family and business all become unknowingly threatened as he is tempted to leave his criminal life behind and become the rags-to-riches businessman he wants to be most of all.

 

Big Little Lies

Based on the same-titled best-seller by Liane Moriarty, “Big Little Lies” weaves a darkly comedic tale of murder and mischief in the tranquil beachfront town of Monterey, Calif. Amidst doting moms, successful husbands, beautiful children, and stunning homes exists a community fueled by rumors and divided into haves and have-nots, exposing fractured relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, and friends and neighbors. Told through the eyes of three mothers — Madeline, Celeste and Jane — the series’ narrative explores society’s myths regarding perfection and its romanticization of marriage, sex, parenting and friendship. Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley star as the three prominent “mothers of Monterey.” I got hooked on this show from Season 1 last year and it’s been a love affair ever since. That being said, you’re welcome 🙂

 

The Handmaid’s Tale

The Handmaid’s Tale is an American dystopian drama web television series created by Bruce Miller, based on the 1985 novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood. The plot features a dystopian future following a Second American Civil War wherein a totalitarian society  subjects fertile women, called “Handmaids”, into child-bearing servitude. The show focuses on the journey of the Handmaid “Offred”.  This series is definitely not your average one. Currently in its third season , it’s a must watch this summer.

 

The Chi

I discovered this show by sheer accident when I was just looking for a good show to watch online and I can say, it was worth it. The show is set in the South Side of Chicago which carries daily danger, and the smallest and simplest of decisions can have life or death consequences for the residents. Life continues as the kids prep for school and their parents shuffle off to work. The young adults of the area are trying to scrape a living for themselves, while the elders sit on their front porches and observe the goings on. The South Side has the potential to crush dreams, and this coming-of-age series focuses on Kevin, a preteen who embraces the normal rites of childhood, Brandon, who makes a leap of faith to succeed in love and life with Jerrika, Emmett, who seeks guidance from his mother, and Ronnie, who is a drifter struggling to be loved. All of them are linked together by sheer coincidence as they seek redemption. Even though its second season just ended, I highly recommend this as a must watch.

Comment below your must watch shows I can check out and tell me your thoughts on my picks as well. Until next time. Xoxo.
