Game Of Thrones
The talk of the hour even before the new season releases. The only TV show where theories, debates and arguments procure the satisfaction of watching it. A dark setting of the olden age rule which includes all the seven deadly sins. You have terror, love, deceit, black magic, fiction and nudity.

As a college student, watching game of thrones is like keeping oneself updated with the current affairs. It helps one strike an interesting conversation immediately.
This TV show is ideal for all the insomniacs out there. Why? Because night time is horror time. Stranger Things is the perfect choice for those who have a good taste in horror flicks. A TV show packed with all the classic goosebump material. It revolves around a small town, where everyone knows everyone and one shady event leads to another. A TV show which will keep you holding your heart with every beat.

We have all heard about the charming and disarming Harvey Spencer. His way of life and work is appreciable. This TV show is a motivation for the Law students out there.

We have the movie and the book, but for those who want it in a gist and still feel like you know it all, watch the TV series. It comes with lots of suspense and witty jokes (sometimes, the jokes are very genuine). Holmes portrayed by Cumberbatch, might make you want to read all the books and watch all their movies.
What happens when you have so much money, you cannot handle it? Spend away? Or give it away? Not Pablo Escobar. Because he just buries it. Everybody knows Pablo Escobar and if you don’t, you should. The best part about this show is that the story line moves fast enough to keep your adrenaline pumping. A small time Columbian smuggler who dealt with knock-off electronic goods, becomes an international drug lord wanted by the US government. He is not your regular bad guy. He does good for his people with the immense amount of money he has.
Finally a well-written TV show for all the comic geeks out there. The role of Flash, who possesses super fast running capabilities, bullet blocking mechanisms and well, much more. Because Barry aka Flash and his powers have no consistency. He discovers new ones through out the show. And that is why this series in gripping. It also incorporates other vigilante, making it worth the watch.
House M.D is the anti-hero of all the medical shows. The protagonist, Dr. Gregory House is not the typical I will give away my life to save you kind of doctor. He has a drug-addiction, he has a paralyzed leg, walks with a cane and is a physician with a deadly sense of sarcasm. The only medical TV show where the highlight is on the medicine and no the doctor’s love stories. It is real, it is genuine and extremely addictive to watch. Especially for all the medical student out there. The show also depicts graphic images of the human body. Exciting isn’t it?

The episodes keep you wanting for more. The most addictive TV show ever. The last episode will leave you wondering, “What will I do with my life now?” The characters of friends become part of your life. Each one relates to any of the characters at a highly personal level. The most impressive part is, you turn into one of the characters. Fortunately, each character is a good and a successful one.
