Top 5 Must-Watch TV Series by the End of This Summer (Guest Post)

Seeing as most of the action has been taken off the big screen and into our TV devices, it’s only natural that there are so many great shows out there to watch. So, instead of spending your summer checking what famous people on Snapchat are doing every day, why not binge-watch one (or more) of these awesome shows?

1. Game of Thrones

Yes, we are fully aware that the latest season of Game of Thrones is nearly over, however, that doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to remind yourself of the good, old times when Sean Bean and Jason Momoa were still on the show.

The epic fantasy show has been running since 2011, with its second to last season broadcasting the final episode on August 27. HBO really outdid itself with this one, because it turned a somewhat well-known series of books into a global phenomenon full of sex, violence and freaking dragons we all know and love.

2. Rick and Morty

It may seem like a silly kid’s show, but it’s nothing of the sort – Rick and Morty follows the titular characters, a super-smart scientist and his not-so-smart grandson on their dark and hilarious adventures through many ridiculous scenarios.

This Adultswim animated show is currently airing its third season with four more episodes left. With Justin Roiland voicing both of the series’ main characters, you’re bound for one hell of a ride with this show

3. The Man in the High Castle

When it comes to alternative history, no TV show comes close to the Amazon Original The Man in the High Castle. Instead of the Allied Forces winning WWI, this show depicts an alternate North America that lost the war to the Nazis.

Season 2 of this show aired in December 2016, while its third season is yet to come to our small screens this year. That’s exactly why you should catch up to the story that features actors like Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans, Luke Kleintank, DJ Qualls, and more.

4. Ozark

If you liked Breaking Bad, you’ll simply love Ozark. Imagine not only Walter White, but his whole family being in on the criminal activity whilst trying to avoid being murdered by a drug cartel – this pretty much sums up the plot of Ozark.

It just began airing this year with the finale of season 1 hitting our TVs in late July. Jason Bateman and Laura Linney are the main stars of this Netflix masterpiece, which means you absolutely have to binge-watch it while it’s fresh.

5. Lucifer

God, devil, religion – all of these are rather controversial topics, unless you hand them over to Fox and let them make a TV show about it. Lucifer tells the story of, well, Lucifer, who decided to quit ruling Hell by moving to Los Angeles on opening a night club.

The show is packed with amazing humour mostly coming from Tom Ellis, who plays the lead role, but it also features incredible acting and some awesome action scenes. Season 2 ended in late May this year, so better get on with binge-watching this masterpiece before the next season hits in October.

Throner Problems

*Warning: Contains Spoilers*

Game Of Thrones may be the greatest show I have ever watched. When I watched the first episode (and made the mistake of liking Eddard Stark) I was a little taken aback because believe me there is no one in the world that can prepare you for Game Of Thrones. But at the same time I felt this unexplainable need to binge watch it for the rest of the day. I actually only began watching it a few months ago but I binge watched and finished all 5 seasons in about a month.

“There’s a beast in every man and it stirs when you put a sword in his hand”

But as we have learnt from Game Of Thrones, all good things come with a price. Here are some problems that all throners (I like to call Game Of Throne fans that!) know too well:

  1. You’re always afraid to get attached- From the moment you see Ned Stark beheaded you promise yourself “never again.” Never again will you let yourself get so attached to a character again- and especially not a Stark. But you can’t help it. Deep down you know you will always respect Arya and grow to admire Khaleesi and Tyrion even though they may be at any random moment killed or more likely severely tortured and then killed. And you have to admit you were rooting for Rob Stark… and then the “Red Wedding” happened (why???) It is quite saddening to know that you can never truly grow attached to a character because they will probably soon die a horrible death (probably at the hands of a Lannister). Although I am not going to complain about King Joffrey’s death (I watched that scene quite a few times with sheer joy).

2.  Simultaneously loving and hating characters- As much as the Lannister’s are snide, arrogant, sadistic and twisted (except Tyrion of course) they are still extremely entertaining and you do have to give them credit. Tywin was one of the smartest men in this show and that is why he survived as long as he did and was able to acquire that much wealth and power. Cersei and Jamie are of course a very interesting duo (*cough incest cough*) but as evil as Cersei may be she does love her children (even the sadistic psychopathic one) and was truly devastated when Joffrey died (perhaps she was the only one who actually mourned him). Lord Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish is another confusing character that just messes with your head. On one hand you will always hate him for his betrayal to the Starks but on the other hand he did save Sansa (only to marry her off to Ramsey!). He’s conniving and disloyal but he is also sharp and always one step ahead (which living in a place like Westeros you have to be). Even King Joffrey grows on you at some point and you begin to miss him after a while (there I said it!)

3.  Spoilers- Yes we get it, you’ve read the books and know more than we do but that doesn’t mean you post about it on every possible site you can find! Avoiding spoilers is like living on an island and trying not to get wet. Everywhere you go there are people commenting and talking about things we don’t know about yet and it is super annoying. At least warn us first so we don’t read it.

4.  Khaleesi- Don’t get me wrong, Khaleesi is great, but sometimes she does tend to get on my nerves. To begin with, is she ever going to get to Westeros in this century? Honestly she is taking forever and as much as I like to watch her grow and succeed her character needs to start making its way to the main storyline. Furthermore, she definitely isn’t ready for the power she desires and I don’t think she can handle the throne because she might just crack under all the pressure and become just like her father. We have definitely seen hints of her cruelty like when she nailed the slave masters to the signposts without differentiating between the guilty and the relatively innocent (like Hizdahr zo Loraq’s father). This wouldn’t be the first time a Targaryen has ordered mass punishment. In addition to this, how does she expect to rule over The Seven Kingdoms when she can’t even rule over Meereen. Plus, her dragons are out of control.

5.  Non-throners- For me there are two different types of people in the world: throners and non-throners. And it’s not that I don’t like people who aren’t fans of GoT, it’s just that sometimes it makes life a lot more difficult for us. For one, they don’t get inside jokes or phrases like “you know nothing Jon Snow” and apparently they don’t get insulted when you compare them to King Joffrey (which is annoying because that’s the worst insult I can think of). They also often say things like “is that the show with the boobs and dragons” when in reality it is a complicated woven tapestry of politics, relationships, family, mythical creatures and more. Other irking phrases they use include “is she the white haired girl?” (it’s silver!) and “cut off his what??” You cannot talk to them about the new exciting things that just happened or who died and how, you can’t exchange theories about who Jon Snow’s parents are or what happened to Arya. This can be quite disappointing.

“Once you’ve accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you”

Even though there are all these cons of GoT the important thing to remember is that it is still incomparable and the pros far outweigh the cons. I can absolutely not wait for the next season! I mean what happened to Arya and Khaleesi and Jon Snow.

Things All Introverts Want You To Know

Being an introvert can sometimes be very difficult. You never know what to say, or how to handle new situations and people. Sometimes regular things that most people don’t even need to think about can make you freak out. Here are some things that will hopefully help you understand introverts better:

  1. We’re not bitchy, unfriendly or mean- if we just met or even if we’ve been friends for a while but aren’t that close the only thing you’re going to get is a smile and some polite and probably painfully awkward conversation about cats. It’s not that we’re anti-social or even asocial, we like talking and are probably dying to talk to someone about the latest How To Get Away With Murder episode we just watched, it’s just our brain seems to freeze around unfamiliar territory (you). So please just try to be patient if we don’t smile back or look away in fear. We’ll come around soon and it’ll be worth it!
  2. New people scare us- it’s not you it’s us. No, honestly! Please don’t leave us alone with random people you claim we have “lots in common with” because even if we have everything in common the conversation is not going to flow. We aren’t going to know how to begin or what to say next, I mean the most likely thing that will happen is we’ll leave on the pretense of going to the bathroom.
  3. New situations scare us even more- everything from being picked on to answer a question in class to flying on an airplane or giving an opinion can be chilling. Even sitting near someone new can be terrifying. But that doesn’t mean we don’t like going to new places and trying new things, it just means we need to take small, less scary steps towards it.
  4. If we say we’re busy we’re probably in our pj’s binge watching Game Of Thrones introverts need to recharge so that we can get up in the morning and handle the next day. If we sometimes turn down your offer to hang out don’t take it personally. It’s not that we don’t enjoy your company, because we do and sometimes hanging out is really great but introverts need their alone time where they can just binge watch their favorite shows for a while, or stay in bed and read. This does not mean we don’t want to go out and have some fun so try not to give up on us!
  5. Trying new things is not fun for us- even though we’re never going to say no to try a new ice cream flavor, trying new things can be quite intimidating. What we would probably love to be doing instead of going to a new club or even meeting new class mates is sitting at home with a book in our hand. New experiences are always good but for us we prefer the good old. We’re very habitual and change can often be very uncomfortable.
  6. Reading rules- there are so many awesome things I can say about reading I don’t even know where to start. I think the best part is you can quietly sit somewhere, with no one else around to talk, and you can really appreciate the book. Plus, for a while all you think about are the characters and you forget about real life and you get to be a part of a fictitious world. When you see us reading do not, I repeat, do not interrupt us even if there’s a zombie apocalypse.
  7. We’re secretly rebellious- we’re secretly super rebellious and just because we don’t give our opinion doesn’t mean we don’t have an opinion. There’s just so much going on in our heads it’s difficult to put it into words. However, once you get an introvert to start talking you will learn so many weird facts it’s going to blow your mind. You’re also going to get some crazy conspiracy theories and opinions.
  8. Don’t try to change us- being an introvert is not something we want to change. We like being who we are so stop trying to push us to be more social. We like having a small group of close friends, and we like being on our own. Accept us for who we are, not what you want us to be. We are, believe it or not, comfortable in our own skin. Don’t try to fix us because we aren’t broken.

I know how tough it is to be an introvert because you can never truly be yourself around a lot of people and sometimes it’s challenging to be the quiet shy one because people are so quick to judge. But to all the introverts out there, be strong because being different is something to cherish not something to be ashamed of. If you feel like your spouse or significant other doesn’t understand you or why you are the way that you are you can always check out online marriage counselling. And to all those reading this who aren’t introverts, just because we’re shy doesn’t mean you can’t take the first steps. Try talking to that geeky chick sitting at the corner reading and if you succeed in befriending her trust me you have got one good friend. We may not be a lot of things but we are loyal and protective over people we love. So just be proud of who you are and do your best!
