The struggle is real. At least that is what I believe, especially during this pandemic. Although, there is a pandemic going on, this should not stop us from enjoying some entertainment. Below are the top 5 shows to watch in 2020. Additionally, if you have any suggestions I would be glad to check them out.
Long shows are great especially ones that have a cliff hanger at the end of each episode. Lucky for you Homeland is 8 seasons and each season is 12 episodes. The show stars Carrie Mathison (Clair Danes) an undercover CIA agent who does everything in her power to protect government secrets with the help from her boss and great friend Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin). These two go through many obstacles together but at the end of the day they have each others backs. The show’s airing networks like Showtime, Hulu, Youtube TV, Sling TV, and Amazon Prime.
2. Peaky Blinders
If you’re into the old school gangster movies or shows then Peaky Blinder is a show you can check out. The show is about a group of brothers living in Birmingham, England who are led by their brilliant brother Thomas Shelby towards taking over the smuggling businesses of their other gangs. Thomas Shelby has an idea of expanding his trades to the United States where he and his brother run into a lot of trouble, but he is always several steps ahead of his competition and the people who are trying to bring his Peaky Blinders down. The is a Netflix original but you can rent it on other platforms like Amazon video.
Living with his family in Chicago Marty Bird (Jason Bateman) was not ever thinking of leaving until he was caught up in a situation with his friend that almost cost him his life. He was then forced to replace his friend and work for the Navarro cartel. However, He was unable to do launder money in Chicago because it was crawling with feds. He then moved with his family to the Ozarks based on a brochure his friend showed him as a real money opportunity. The series is a bit slow so don’t give up on it because after a the first season you are hooked. It’s a Netflix original and only plays on Netflix.
4. Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan
Jack Ryan is a character portrayed by John Krasinski also known as Jim from “The Office.” I never imagined John Krasinski in this role but after watching Jack Ryan, I have to say the role fits him. Jack Ryan is a show about a war hero who decides that war his not for him so he finds a job within the CIA as an analyst. Joining the CIA as an analyst he had no idea he would be forced back into the field. The character is not afraid of taking risks but risks are meant to be taken to mitigate terrible outcomes from corruption in other countries. There are only two seasons of this show but this one is a great on. A third season is in the works. The show is primarily on Amazon Video.
Billions is a show about a U.S. State attorney (Chuck Rhoades, Jr.) living in New York City while trying to bring down one of biggest enemies yet Bobby Axelrod. Bobby owns one of the largest stock trading companies continues to work hard so that no one take it away from him. The twist here is that Chuck Rhoades’s wife Wendy is a long time friend of Bobby Axelrod and happens to work for him as well. There is a lot of controversy between Chuck and Bobby that goes back a long time. The show is 4 seasons with the 5th one being released May-2020.
