July 17 is just around the corner, and with it – the start of the next season of Game of Thrones. Inspired by this, this week we’ve picked 5 fantasy TV series for you to watch. Fairy tales, mythical Gods, medieval lands, isolated islands, epic battles and more – these shows have it all.
Game of Thrones
Winter is here – and we have been preparing for it since the beginning of the show.
“Game of Thrones” is a fantasy TV drama created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of “A Song of Ice and Fire”, George R.R. Martin’s series of fantasy novels.
Set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, “Game of Thrones” has several ongoing plot lines and a wonderful cast including Emilia Clare, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Kit Harington, and three dragons. Sadly, the latter are not real.
The show centers on three primary story arcs that will keep you on your toes with many unexpected turns, fierce battles, atrocities, mysteries, political struggles, schemes and machinations and much more…
Frankly, the show is so good we’re having a hard time describing it – so if you haven’t seen it, now is the time to catch up!
Are you a fan of vampires, werewolves and mysteries? Then this is the show for you.
A spin-off of “The Vampire Diaries”, “The Originals” centers on the Mikaelson siblings, otherwise known as the world’s original vampires: Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies), and Rebekah (Claire Holt).
They decided to return to New Orleans to reclaim the city they helped build but but the circumstances have changed and they have to face many new and old enemies.
There are 4 seasons of the show so far, so prepare for some serious binge-watching.
Once Upon a Time
“Once upon a time” will immerse you in a fairy-tale world bound to the modern day.
For Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), life has been anything but a happy ending. But when she’s reunited with Henry (Jared Gilmore), the son she’d given up for adoption ten years ago, on the night of her 28th birthday, everything changes.
10-year-old Henry is in desperate need of Emma’s help: the boy is convinced from reading a book of fairytales that his mother is the daughter of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) – who sent her away from the Enchanted Forest to be protected from a curse that was enacted by the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla).
This series brilliant mixture of classic fairy tales blended with creative story lines, and there are 6 seasons of it to watch so buckle up and get that popcorn ready.
The “American Gods” TV series will be greatly appreciated by anyone who enjoys mythology.
The traditional Old Gods with mythological roots from around the world fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the New Gods.
The series focuses on Shadow Moon who meets a strange man named Mr. Wednesday after being released from prison, and soon becomes embroiled in a large-scale conflict between the Old Gods and the New Gods. Who will win?
“Lost” is a controversial TV series that leaves plenty of room for interpretation. Full of unanswered questions and mysteries, the show will lead you through a search of answers along with the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815.
A group of plane crash survivors find themselves stranded on a remote Pacific island.
The trauma of the crash soon becomes overshadowed by the island itself, where unseen creatures stalk into the jungle and astonishing coincidences reveal themselves. Will they escape from the island and what is the fate of the survivors?
