Most of the television shows that are on these days have little to to no acting. Although, I do enjoy a little reality TV here and there, I can't stand it being on every single network. For those of you who enjoy a good story line with real plots and real acting, this list is for you!
For some reason I hadn't jumped on the Don Draper train until this year. But I am so glad that I did. After watching the most recent season, I quickly started streaming online from season one. This show has absolute remarkable acting that relies purely on true acting capabilities. Plus it accurately depicts the coming of age time period of the 1960s. Hats off to you Mad Men for a show I can't wait to watch.
For those of you who miss Fox's 24, this show is a good replacement. This psychological thriller is an excellent show. Although the plot is somewhat disturbing in a "hits close to home" kind of way, it still delivers a plot of what could be happening in the minds of our American troops today. Great show. I am definitely psyching up for season 2.
After playing the "creepy guy" in several movies and TV shows, Steve Buscemi finally gets a leading roll and really delivers some great mob boss-political corruption drama. This show gives a great representation of the days of alcohol prohibition in 1930s America. Great acting and a great story. I will definitely have a drink to the second season.
Even though I desperately miss Jack Bauer and the series 24, Kiefer Sutherland has surprised me with another great show on FOX. Touch is a wonderful series about an autistic boy who sees patterns in the world that most average people do not. Through these patterns, the boy wants to right the wrongs of our universe and restore our world back to it's natural order. Kiefer Sutherland plays the boy's father and is one of the only people that can help interpret his son's wishes to make the world a more peaceful place. Touch is s beautiful show that has definitely touched my heart.
This show is probably my most favorite show of the year. It is a British series that revolves around an aristocratic family and their servants in the 1910 and 1920s in England during the reign of King George V. It follows their lives, love, and tragedy with such great detail that it leaves the audience yearning and wanting for more. It is an absolute magnificent masterpiece that captures the heart and soul of it's fans and followers. If Downton Abbey were a flower it would be the first red rose picked on warm summer day. Cheers to you Downton Abbey. May your garden grow forever.
