It’s that time of the year again.
When TV shows begin their new seasons, and new TV shows are tested out on the American populations (before being illegally downloaded all across the globe!).
While shows like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones have won a huge audience following in India, there are a number of shows that begin every year that are both a huge gamble for the studios, as well as exciting to the genre itself.
Here are six brand new TV shows that you want to keep your eyes open about:
Priyanka Chopra’s brand new show has been dubbed as ‘Grey’s Anatomy meets Homeland’. Chopra plays Alex Parrish, an FBI officer who is accused of involvement in a terrorist attack.
While Priyanka Chopra’s earlier flirtations with Hollywood were both frustrating and cringe-worthy, Quantico has been generating a lot of positive response among viewers and critics. Should you watch Priyanka Chopra’s new show? Or have Mujhse Shadi Karoge and God Tussi Great Ho traumatised you too much to venture into it? You decide for yourself!
2. MINORITY REPORT:
Every since Philip K. Dick wrote Minority Report in 1956, about a futuristic society which can predict upcoming crimes, the story has been sought after by filmmakers for adaptations. Steven Spielberg adapted the story into a film in 2002 starring Tom Cruise, and it was also the theme for a video game.
In 2015, the story witnessed yet another reboot, this time based a few years after the happenings of the original story. If you are into science fiction, this might be your poison!
Times Square, New York. An unclaimed bag lands in the middle of the street, with a tag that reads ‘Call the FBI’. From inside a bag, a beautiful, naked, tattooed woman emerges. Her memory has been erased, but each of her tattoos serve as hints for future crimes. Sounds like an interesting premise? Much of the viewers of Blindspot seem to think so. Blindspot has gotten rave reviews for their first few episodes.
Also, the show’s got Jaimie Alexander in it.
What if your IQ shot up to four digits just by taking a pill? What if you used 100% of your brain, and every memory, every vision, every smell and taste, everything gets permanently imprinted in your memory, for you to recall when you need it?
That is the premise of Limitless, based on the 2011 film of the same name, starring Bradley Cooper. The TV show takes off a few years after the film’s events, and even has special appearances by Bradley Cooper. The trailer, honestly, is quite trippy!
5. HEROES REBORN
When the original Heroes debuted on television screens in 2006, it took the world by storm. Winning Emmys, Golden Globes, and People’s Choice Awards till the end of its fourth season in 2010, Heroes acquired a cult status among viewers and nerds.
Continuing the story of ordinary people who discover superhuman abilities, Heroes Reborn is a reboot of the Heroes franchise, with some older characters making reappearances.
If you’re a nerd of a science geek, this might be your cup of tea.
5. BEST TIME EVER WITH NEIL PATRICK HARRIS:
Neil Patrick Harris, who played the role of suave, savvy badass Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother, returns after two years to the screen with his new show – Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris.
Intended as a show that is a mix of a game show, talk show, a live show, as well as a prank show, it completely rests on the shoulders of its charming lead, Harris himself. Here’s the trailer of the show, if you’ve been brooding over Barney’s absence in your life.
Those were five shows you can get yourself hooked to, till the next season of Game of Thrones is out. So get your Torrents out, and fire away.
Nope, just kidding. We don’t support piracy at all. Please ask an uncle in the US to ship you the original DVDs.
Yup, that should work!
