Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be talking about some of my favourite TV shows that have started fairly recently that I’d recommend! Onto the post!
Station 19- this show is a spin-off from Grey’s Anatomy- which pretty much everyone knows of- and it focuses on the fire fighters of Seattle’s Station 19. I like just about all of the ensemble cast, and at least find those I don’t like reasonably interesting. I really love some of the romances that are developing too, and there are some very interesting platonic ones too. There are some great plots involving their jobs too, and I’m getting very invested in it now it’s in season 2. Plus, if you’re a Grey’s fan there’s lots of fun cameos and some cross over episodes! Basically, think Grey’s Anatomy but with more fire and less scalpels and you have this. It’s super fun/traumatic to watch in equal measure.
Proven Innocent– I found this by chance- I saw a trailer while I was watching something else- and I’m really enjoying it’s debut season so far. It’s about a woman who was sent to prison for a crime she didn’t commit- the murder of her best friend- who now defends other wrongfully convicted people for a living. I think it’s an interesting twist on lawyer dramas, and the over-arching plot about her best friend’s murder and who really did it is pretty thrilling.
The Rookie– I have loved Nathan Fillion since he played Richard Castle and I’ve been enjoying seeing him on my screen more regularly very much indeed. In this show he plays a man who’s just decided to become a police officer even though he’s much older than your average rookie, and it sees him and his fellow rookies navigate their new roles. I really like all the rookies and their TOs, I find its exploration of challenges police officers may face interesting and I think this has a lot of potential to last for quite a few seasons; there’s so many things it could explore with the characters.
This is Us- this show is very hard to explain, but I’ll try. It’s about a family called the Pearsons and it shows them mostly in the present day but also in flashbacks and flashforwards, and it’s kind of just about their lives and relationships. It’s both comedy and drama; funny and deeply moving. It has some perfectly flawed, lovable characters and I love their complex relationships. The structure is genius.
Dynasty– this reboot of the classic 80s soap is approaching the end of its second season, and if you know me at all you were probably waiting for it to pop up on this list. It is without question my favourite show I’ve ever watched; I love basically everything about it. The characters are all kind of horrible most of the time but I adore them beyond words regardless, the plots are pacy and exciting and I can’t count the number of times twists have made me gasp while watching this. The outfits are stunning too, and I am tragically invested in some of the ships. I love it so much, and I can’t wait to continue being a fan for the 3rd season and hopefully many more.
What new shows have you been enjoying? Are you planning to give any of these a go? I’d love to hear in the comments!
