When you are next looking for something to binge watch, and you are bored of watching the same old stuff, what can you do? The truth is that no matter how often you feel as though you have watched it all, there is always more out there to discover, and that means that you can always find something new to watch. Sometimes it might even be that you want to get into a completely new genre, and that can be really exciting, especially if you do then actually end up finding something completely new which you never thought you would enjoy or watch, or even something which you had never heard of. In this post, we will look at three TV genres which you might want to consider sinking your teeth into, so that you have something new to watch next time you are wondering what to do in front of the TV.
If you are looking for something to binge watch, often drama is the best way to go. And something which seems to be particularly enthralling, and especially good at drawing you in, is crime drama specifically. These work in this way because you are constantly teased along with the promise and premise of the whodunit theme, and that means that it is easy to watch a huge number of episodes in one sitting. If you don’t currently really watch that many crime drama shows, you might want to think about it. You’ll be surprised at just how addictive and fascinating the best ones can be – and often, they provide the best kind of acting to observe as well, so if you are something of an acting buff you will appreciate that too.
Sometimes genres gather a particular reputation which is not really fair or unfounded, and that might stop you from watching them too often, or even watching them at all. A good example of this is the anime genre, something which has undergone many changes since its inception and which is now enjoyed by many people all over the world. The first misconception to overcome is that idea that this is just for kids. Actually, it is just as often an adult endeavour too, and you will find that many anime shows have thrillingly complex characters and plots, and are likely to favour amongst the best dramatic television. You can also find funny anime and, yes, some silly anime. But on the whole it’s worth a go if you have never tried it before. You might be pleasantly surprised.
Often reserved for film rather than TV, when horror does come to TV it can be all the more thrilling for it. Some of the best TV series out there are horror, and you will be amazed at how effective many of the effects can be, and how truly downright creepy the stories and characters can be too. If you love a horror, but have only really watched movie horrors, consider getting into a good well-related TV horror too.
