Personally, the second thing that I enjoy to do more than breathing is watching tv shows. I can literally be watching over 5 shows at the same time and never lose the plot of each one of them. Here, I will be listing 5 shows that I enjoyed an awful lot that lack of audience. These need more fandom, so if you haven’t watched any of them, what are you waiting for?

“A chronicle of the lives of the British aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the early 20th Century.”
Honestly this is by far one of my most favorite shows ever. If you are into period drama, this will definitely catch your eye.
The things that I liked the most were the accuracy regarding historic events, such as the World War I. How the writers threw small details throughout the episodes. Problems represented, not jut suffered by the upper class but also but the lower as well. I really adored to see the stories of each and one of the characters, being from the Crawley family, or the servants. It’s simply a must.
Number of seasons: 6 seasons
Number of episodes per season: 8 episodes plus a christmas special as season finale ( 9 in total )

” A young, devout Catholic woman discovers that she was accidentally artificially inseminated. ”
This is a comedy one. And is perfect to watch it in family or just alone. Which ever you prefer. Honestly, Gina Rodriguez made such a wonderful job with Jane that she deserves a thousand awards for it. A charming, loving, full of laughs ( along some tears ) tv show. The characters are hilarious and it’s easy to relate to them. I love shows that represent the latino families.
Quick note: the episodes are introduced as chapters!!
Number of seasons: 2 so far. 3rd season confirmed
Number of episodes per season: 22 episodes

” Four years after the Rising, the government starts to rehabilitate the Undead for reentry into society, including teenager Kieren Walker, who returns to his small Lancashire village to face a hostile reception, as well as his own demons. “
Are you into zombies and LGBT? Then you are into this show. Honestly, I can not express how much I love it and how deeply pains me the fact that it was canceled. No! Why? Well, gay zombies are not a good thing for the UK.
What I like about ITF is how the writers present very real topics and the sufferings caused by the aforementioned. Things that the society is currently living with. Suicide, LGTB, rejection, religion fanatics, death. It’s all very real. The realness in all, the characters, the relationships, everything.
And let’s not even begin with the soundtrack. Keaton Henson and his out-of-this-world music. You by far the only song that can truly make me cry. Perfect to study, read, write… this show is all aesthetics. Please, please, please give it a try.
Number of seasons: 2 seasons
Number of episodes per season: season 1 ( 3 eps ) ; season 2 ( 6 eps )

“Written by David S. Goyer, the series follows the “untold” story of Leonardo Da Vinci: the genius during his early years in Renaissance Florence. As a 25-year old artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist, he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time as he begins to not only see the future, but invent it.”
If you enjoy historic shows with a little bit twist of the story, then Da Vinci’s Demons is your thing.
The plot follows the life of Leonardo. A young artist who has lost his mother and is treated like a bastard by his own father. Shortly, Leo will meet a strange man who claims he knows what happened to his mother ( one he never met, and for some reason, even though he can recall every single detail of everything, he can’t remember her face ). After this odd encounter, he will have to choose what to do. Follow the man’s instruction and save everything, or leave it.
I too great pleasure if watching this show’s special effects. How Da Vinci calculate meticulously his creations, or just simple things to get out of trouble. It feels like being in his mind, see his calculations. All of it is absolutely astounding.
Historic fiction never fails, mates.
Number of seasons: 3 seasons
Number of episodes per season: season 1 ( 8 eps ) ; season 2 ( 10 eps ) ; season 3 ( 10 ep )

“A group of ambitious law students and their brilliant criminal defense professor become involved in a twisted murder plot that promises to change the course of their lives.”
Shit, shit, shit. We are talking by my all time favorite show over here. I mean, it’s HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER!!! Man, not enough people talk about this show. Why?!?!? It has a very diversity of characters. Black people, white people, an Italian guy that is totally a hit man but deep inside is just a puppy we must protect at all cost, a gay couple, and a freaking Latina!!! And shit mate, Viola Davis is innit!!
Fun fact: one of the cast members ( Matt McGorry) is a HUGE feminist who is constantly fighting for the right thing on his twitter/instagram.
And the plot. It presents you this strong female lawyer who also happens to teach law at university. A body is found near the place and Annalise Keating with the Keatings ( heheh ) her five students will be resolving the cases while an uglier and more disturbing one is happening. Things get complicated but there is nothing Annalise can’t do. Just watch her being all badass and twisting the law for them not to get caught.
There’s a lot of corruption, badass and strong females, hot guys and more. Bring ya’ll papers and pen and take note for the next time you need to… how to get away with murder 😉 haaaaahhh
Number of seasons: 2 seasons and the 3rd confirmed and in production.
Number of episodes per season: 15 episodes per season
