Watch these six shows while waiting for 'Money Heist' S05
Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) is a favorite of millions. The Professor is charming, while the other characters in this Alex Pina-creation provide apt support. Reportedly 65mn households streamed its fourth season on the first month of release, thereby making it the most-watched Netflix's non-English show. With this heightened fame, many have started looking for an equally captivating show to watch.
Narcos is based on a true crime story of a drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar. The show provides equal thrill and taste of power, much like Pina's show. It spins around how Escobar became dangerously powerful through the distribution of cocaine, while focusing on his face-off with the Drug Enforcement Administration. Narcos has three seasons, and a continuation show, Narcos: Mexico.
Another Spanish crime drama, co-created by Pina makes it to the list. Locked Up (Vis a Vis) shows the day-to-day life of prisoners and how they survive. Centering around Macarena Ferreiro's (Maggie Civantos) love life, the show tells how she gets tangled into a series of crimes. The four-season-long show narrates stories of alliances, betrayals, and revenge, both between inmates and them against prison-officers.
Starring Dominic Purcell as Lincoln Burrows and Wentworth Miller as Michael Scofield, Prison Break started with the simple concept of bringing two brothers out of the prison. The show kept on exploring the crime world and its consequences until five seasons. Prison Break's song also gathered a lot of stardom. Ramin Djawadi-composed theme song was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Awards in 2006.
If you haven't yet watched Vince Gilligan's neo-noir drama, Breaking Bad, you're missing a lot! The show narrates the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), famously known as Heisenberg, who struggles with lung cancer and eventually becomes a dreaded drug lord. Breaking Bad debuted in 2015, and has been renewed for the final sixth season. It also has a prequel, Better Call Saul.
Killing Eve is a spy-thriller series, based on Villanelle novel series by Luke Jennings. The series revolves around the chase game of Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), a British intelligence investigator and Villanelle (Jodie Comer), a psychopathic assassin. Both develop a mutual obsession with each other in the show. Killing Eve, debuted in April 2018, has currently been renewed for its fourth and final season.
Orange is The New Black is a comedy-drama, which explores corruption, privatization of the prison, guards brutality, discrimination, and several safety issues of the prisoners. Jenji Kohan's creation takes you inside the women's jail. Based on Piper Chapman's (Taylor Schilling) story, the show revolves around her criminal past and struggling present. The aforementioned shows are worth giving a try for all Money Heist fanatics.
