In what many critics have deemed the “golden age of television,” TV viewing has never been more popular. Box-office receipts fluctuate, but the small screen attracts more and more eyeballs as the content keeps improving and expands into new territories.
With more people watching television on a multitude of devices and platforms, there’s more chatter about it, too. Fandom can be what connects people to coworkers at the water cooler or to friends, acquaintances, neighbors and more.
With so much decent TV out there and so much that's recommended by so many sources, here's a look at four shows setting social media on fire that you should be watching.
1.) "Game of Thrones." It's tough not to know at least some of the story beats of "Game of Thrones" even if you aren't a week-to-week watcher. The HBO series has become the obsession of television viewers everywhere, breaking viewership records for its network every year. (Shown above in one of the images for this story is Daenerys Targaryen, Princess of House Targaryen, on the left, played by actress Emilia Clarke.)
HBO has announced that its flagship series has only two seasons left, and fans are salivating to see who will survive in the land of dragons and bizarre and violent political maneuvering.
There's already four spin-off shows in development, so fans will have much to discuss for years ahead; but if you haven't jumped on the "Game of Thrones" train, then it's probably still time. Not only will you be up to date on the series that right now arguably influences pop culture the most, but you'll see fantasy done in a mature and dark way as never before. It's not a series for the young, but it's a thrilling adventure story that pushes forward what's possible in television storytelling week after week. (go to page 2 to continue reading)
