Five Shows You’ve Got to Check Out

Here are five shows you all should seriously consider giving a fair chance:

1) Brooklyn Nine-Nine: After only one season, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has already wowed fans and critics alike, earning it the Golden Globe for Best TV Series. The show follows the (mis)adventures of a band-of-misfits police squad in New York. Andy Samberg plays a goofball detective who, between various pranks, manages to amass an impressive arrest record. He is supported by a brilliantly-balanced cast, including the precinct’s deadpan captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher), larger-than-life secretary Gina (Chelsea Peretti), and Sergeant Terry Jeffords, with his bodybuilder’s physique and deathly fear of any field action (Terry Crews). This show has me actually laughing out loud each week, and it is on the rise. Make sure to look it up on Hulu!

 

2) Breaking Bad: This show is just 100 percent amazing. It is about Walter White, a chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with lung cancer and needs some extra money to leave behind for his family. And what better way to make that money than cooking crystal meth with his former student? Be warned, the show is intense and the plotlines get dark. The show is about as addictive as the blue meth Walter manufactures; once you start watching it, you will be hooked and won’t be able to peel yourself away from your TV.

 

3) It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: If you are looking for a comedy that keeps you laughing regardless of the episode, It’s Always Sunny is for you. It is about 4 young people living in Philadelphia and running a bar. It features different characters that all have distinctive personality features that makes them great. For example the star of the show, Charlie Day, is illiterate and has anger tantrums.  The other characters are Kaitilin Olson, Rob Mchelheney, Danny Devito and Glenn Howerton. The combination of them create a great comedy that has been on the air for 9 years now and is something you should start watching immediately. Essentially, each episode depicts a unique phase that they go through and eventually fail every single time. That may sound repetitive, but it’s not, check this show out, I highly recommend it.

 

4) The League: This is show about 6 adults who play fantasy football. Don’t worry though, you don’t need to watch football or play fantasy football to find this show funny. The show is about the trash talk that goes with fantasy football and the shame that comes with losing fantasy football. Basically, the show’s humor is founded in making fun of your friends. There is one character named Andre who gets slammed by the other characters every single episode. If you are someone that loves to make fun of your friends, this show is for you.

5) Parks and Recreation: This show is a fusion of many great big name actors who in combination create a great comedy. Amy Poehler is the main character, and she is absolutely hilarious with her character being portrayed as a hard working person in the  government. Stand up comedian Aziz Ansari is featured as well, and he eventually will steal the show with his on-going jokes and his desire to be better than every other character in the show. The show is about the park’s department in a small town in Indiana and the characters lives who work there. It features many awkward pauses when characters say strange things. You get to hear everyone’s perspective on certain situations as there are side interviews whenever it is convenient.

 

Hopefully these reviews will convince you.

    Breaking Bad “is about as addictive as the blue meth Walter manufactures.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.

    Parks and Rec is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen and I recommend it to everyone! It definitely needs more recognition so I’m glad it made it onto the list.
