I have been watching series since I was twelve and I started learning English thanks to them. At that time, it was series such as The Vampire Diaries or Pretty little liars but as the time went by, I’ve seen some really good ones which are really worth it. And in today’s post I’m going to present them to you (I also love Game of Thrones but that’s so famous that I’ve decided not to mention it).

Thirteen is a British miniseries about a 26 year old woman Ivy who was captured for 13 years of her life by a man. He held her in a cellar and abused her. Now she finally escapes and calls a police. They lead her to the police station where she meets her family and then she’s trying to adjust to the new situation. But there are many secrets about Ivy and this man. It looks like Ivy is hiding something from the police, it looks like she isn’t telling them everything. And so we get to know the story step by step. It’s very interesting to watch Ivy and her behaviour and guess what is happening in her head.

Broadchurch is a crime drama from the Great Britain. Two detectives, Alec Hardy (played by David Tennant) and Ellie Miller (played by Olivia Colman) are trying to solve a murder of a young boy who was found on a beach under a high cliff. The story is getting more and more twisted and when I finally found out who the murderer was, I couldn’t be more surprised. I’ve never watched a series in which the revealing would be more breathtaking and surprising than in Broadchurch.

Once again, a series from the Great Britain. I think the majority is familiar with this one but I’ve decided to write about it just in case there is still somebody who doesn’t know it. Plus I really love Sherlock.
The series is inspired by books about Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle. But instead of placing the story into the past, they placed it into the 21st century. Sherlock is played by Benedict Cumberbatch (*eternal love*) and Dr. Watson is played by Martin Freeman. The series follows the stories of the original books (they don’t properly stick to it but lots of episodes are inspired by the books) and It’s. Just. Awesome. The only problem with Sherlock is that we always have to wait for like two years and then we get three single episodes in one month and then it’s over. Also, now we don’t even know if this series will continue. But Sherlock is definitely worth the trouble!
THE CARRIE DIARIES
Written by: Candace Bushnell (it’s based on her book)
Developed by: Amy B. Harris
Number of seasons: 2
Number of episodes: 26
This is an american series and it’s about the life of Carrie from Sex and the City – but before Sex and the City. Carrie is only 17 in here and she’s innocent and cute, she’s trying to discover new things and find her place in the world.
I adore this series, especially for its fashion. I have watched some episodes just because I have freaking loved those outfits. Don’t get me wrong, the story is also very good – but the fashion… this series is going to wake up the fashion devil in you. Trust me.
Written by: Blake Crouch (it’s based on his novel)

Wayward Pines is an american sci-fi series based on books by Blake Crouch. I’ve read the first book and although some things are different in the series, I liked both. It’s a story about Ethan Burke, a U.S. Secret Service agent, who goes to a small town called Wayward Pines to investigate the disappearance of his colegue. But some car crashes into him and when he wakes up, he’s in a hospital in Wayward Pines. And then weird things start happening. Nobody answers his calls when he tries to call home, people are acting weird and he cannot leave the town. Step by step, he discovers the true secret of this town. (And when he does, it’s definitely worth it. It’s really interesting and it has a great meaning.)
That would be all for my favourite TV series, thank you for reading.
