Must Watch TV Shows (Top 10) 2016
2016 has been a great year for quality TV Shows so far, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of this year will bring. With all the great shows this year; that proves that we truly live in a golden age of television. Here are my must watch TV Shows for the first and second quarter of 2016. This is simply a list of my must watch shows for the first half of the year and therefor are in any particular order.
Turn: Washington’s Spies: In the last few years AMC has been pumping out extremely high quality television and Turn is no exception. As you probably guessed from the name of the series that this show is all about spies during The American Revolution, but I’m sure most of you have either seen or heard of Turn before. That being said, Turn has just started their third season and airs on Monday nights at 10/9c.
Preacher: Although it has not aired yet I’m still going to include it on this list, because I’m super pumped for it. As I said earlier AMC makes great television and I’m sure that they will adapt the comic to the small screen very well. Preacher airs Sunday nights on AMC starting May 22nd 10/9c.
The Night Manager: I know AMC knows how to make great TV. Now this series is a drama, so expect it to be slow at times, but in the end it tells a interesting story about a deeply undercover agent and one of the worlds top weapons dealers. The Night Manager might be a slow burn, but I recommend that everyone give it a try, especially if you like the other shows on my list. The Night Manager airs on AMC Tuesdays 10/9c.
12 Monkeys: If you like time travel, and time paradoxes then you need to be watching 12 Monkeys. It has to be one of the best shows on SyFy in years, if not ever. If you haven’t seen the first season I highly recommend that you watch it! Not only is the series very clever but it will keep you guessing throughout time. 12 Monkeys airs on SyFy at 9/8c.
Game of Thrones: Everyone should had guessed that Game of Thrones would be on this list. It’s now in it’s sixth season, so if you haven’t seen this show before and you have HBO; what are you waiting for? You can watch the entire series for free on HBO Go (Their On-Demand App). Game of Thrones airs on Sunday Nights at 9/8c.
Silicon Valley: One of the funniest shows on TV right now, period! Silicon Valley is that dry and awkward humor that will leave you cracking up long after the joke has ended. A comedy about a geeky start up in Silicon Valley is a perfect fit for HBO on sunday nights and is a great way to wind down after an intense episode of Game of Thrones. Silicon Valley Airs on HBO Sunday nights at 10/9c. Watch my season three Best Buy Exclusive Edition unboxing here.
Lucifer: From the mind of comic book legend Neil Gaiman, Lucifer is about the devil who gets bored with his throne in hell and decides to have some fun in Los Angeles. There he teams up with an homicide detective named Chloe to help solve murders. The series just ended and had some good laughs, so go watch it. You can watch the entire first season on Hulu.

Gotham: Now on it’s second season; Gotham is finally starting to reveal some of Batman’s classic villains. I’m not going to go any deeper into this one; just go watch it. Gotham airs on Monday nights 9/8c.
The Flash: The flash is hands down one of the best super hero TV series ever. What I like best about this series is that it’s not as dark like most other shows on TV and has a fun twist to it. On top of that it reminds me a lot of Smallville, but more importantly if it wasn’t for Smallville we would have great super hero TV show. In a way Smallville paved the way for The Flash to be successful on The CW. The Flash airs on Tuesdays at 8/7c. Click here to read a earlier review of The Flash and Gotham.
The Americans: Just like AMC, FX produces excellent TV as well. The fourth season has been just as shocking and intense as it has been in previous seasons, and deserves to be on your watch list. The americans is a great show to binge watch the first three seasons if you haven’t seen this series before.
11.22.63: If you had the power to go back in time; would you try to change history? That’s what Jake Epping (James Franco) tries to do in this Stephen King mini-series. Jake has a plan to save JFK, but will time push back and will it be for the better? This mini-series was awesome, and is a must watch. You can watch it on Hulu anytime or buy the blu-ray on August 9th.
