Top 10 Best TV Series (September)

This month’s top picks: a gap-year travel, karate 80’s style, and a U.S. election gone awry.

#10 Ragnarok (down from last month’s #9) -Norway

down-arrowWe’re not sure how much real action Ragnarok is going to have, and we hope subsequent episodes are better-paced. But it’s still a novel approach to the usual Norse legend story, and should be fun to watch. -Decider

#9 Good Girls (down from last month’s #8) -USA

down-arrowThis is kind of a different series with an interesting plot: three normal mothers who became involved in crimes but still trying to be normal for their family and be good persons. The plot is not believable but the actors in it are really great and really funny. 

#8 East Siders (down from last month’s #6) -USA

down-arrowA 2012 dark comedy web series about boyfriends Carl and Thom who were living in Los Angeles, “EastSiders” earned many praises that we had high expectations on it. Like “You’re the Worst,” this show has the depth that is lacking from most shows today. The screenshots like those of the ’60s (like blurry and has somehow sad feeling about the place). -Geekgod Review

#7 New Pope (unchanged) -Italy

retain“The New Pope” has a lot to say about the church’s role in the modern world, its significance to socio-political events, and what’s expected of its leaders — and it says it with a sharpened edge. -Indie Wire

#6 Angelo’s House (up from last month’s #10) -Germany

up-arrowFeaturing German model Angelo Carlucci, Angelos House is funny and light, the banters are reminiscent of Two and a Half Men‘s comedy albeit no sons here.  Angelos House is in German but with subtitles. –Geekgod Review

#5 Spartacus (down from last month’s #4) -USA

down-arrowThis series is for history buffs and the audience in South America familiar with his story. In other words, this is not a series that would get international attention. But those who seek to learn more about this polarizing figure will definitely enjoy watching this series. –Geekgod Review

#4 Bolivar (up from last month’s #5) -Colombia

up-arrowThis series is for history buffs and the audience in South America familiar with his story. In other words, this is not a series that would get international attention. But those who seek to learn more about this polarizing figure will definitely enjoy watching this series. –Geekgod Review

#3 House of Cards (down from last month’s #2) -USA

down-arrowThe election period is season 4 is not your conventional election with lots of Scandal-like plots and with less emphasis to the electoral map which is a bummer. But the limitations of that very system was explored which was pretty cool. Problem is, after that, the story seemed to fizzle.

#2 Cobra Kai (new) -USA

new-logoCobra Kai’s tone gets serious as the series progresses. At first, it relies heavily on the popularity of “Karate Kid” to boost the series, but we’re seeing that it is slowly trying to make a story of its own, without breaking away from the Cobra Kai-Miyagi-Do rivalry. 

#1 Travels with My Father (new) -Germany

new-logoThe Netflix show made its debut in 2017 and fans loved their awkward and quirky encounters along the way. While some parts of the show may seem scripted, the series has received plenty of praise as it is now in the top 10 on Netflix in the UK following the season four release. -Express UK
