It’s tempting to follow the crowd and watch the latest and greatest TV series to launch on your favourite streaming service, but where’s your sense of adventure?
Some absolute gems have come out over the years, many of which you might not even know existed. So, we’ve rounded up ten of our favourite TV series below, all offering something a little different and all of them still available to stream on one of the many services at your disposal (which we’ve highlighted too).
Whether you’re into the supernatural, sci-fi or fancy a bit of nostalgia, there should be something here for you.
A clever crime drama produced by the one and only J. J. Abrams. It’s 1963, Alcatraz has been closed because of safety issues, and all its inmates have been transferred. Or have they?
In fact, all of Alcatraz’s 256 prisoners and 46 guards are missing and have just popped up in present-day San Francisco. It’s the job of government agent Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) to track them down, stop a new crime wave and get to the bottom of this rather strange turn of events.
Blood Drive (2017)
So good it was cancelled after one series. We jest, though. Blood Drive is set in a dystopian, alternate 1999 where the US has been split by a series of fracking earthquakes – there’s even a giant ravine called “The Scar” running along the path of the Mississippi River.
