You can never get bored of watching 'Breaking Bad'
Breaking Bad, a Vince Gilligan creation, is a masterpiece that manages to keep you on edge every single time you watch it.
The neo-Western crime drama shows how a cancer-stricken Chemistry professor, out of a need of money initially, starts making meth, and emerges as a druglord.
Inundated with twists and turns, a film based on this show is set to release next month.
Watch how a TV news channel works in 'The Newsroom'
Not all might like The Newsroom, but this political drama displays the nitty-gritty of how a TV news channel works.
Headlined by Jeff Daniels as Will McAvoy, the show was principally written by Aaron Sorkin, known for Emmy Award-winning drama, The West Wing.
It opened to average critical reviews, but ignore that, and give it a try, because it's worth one watch at least.
'StartUp': A crime-driven cryptocurrency group and a crooked FBI agent
When the 54-minute pilot of StartUp was aired in 2016, the four sex scenes (already?) turned viewers off, but beyond that, this TV drama is a compelling watch.
It shows a Miami-based group developing a digital currency but gets embroiled in the crime world, and a crooked FBI agent, Phil Rask has vowed to take them down.
Martin Freeman plays Rask, with subdued anger.
