Genre: Comedy

IMDb rating: 8.0/10

Rotten Tomatoes: 91%

Another stupendous comedy show that makes fun of things we usually shy away from. Knowing how the U.S. is touchy about racial comedy, Fresh Off The Boat takes things to another level altogether.

The story is about a Taiwanese family that relocates Orlando from Washington D.C. and try really hard to fit in to the U.S. “culture” in Orlando.

Considering how Indians are obsessed with migrating to the US, this show will connect with the Indian audience on more levels than one. Plus, it’s insanely hilarious!

19. Vikings (2013 – present)

Genre: Action, Drama, History, 

IMDb rating: 8.6/10

Rotten Tomatoes: 93%

The reason this unbelievably awesome show is so low on the list is because out of all the shows mentioned in the list, this one is a little known. Even though some people have heard of the show, very few are actually watching this historical action show.

For a generation obsessed with Game of Thrones, Vikings is the next best thing.

Here’s the trailer.

At a time when TV continues to explore new avenues of story-telling, Hollywood actors can’t hold back from venturing into TV shows.

22. Vinyl (2016 – present)

Genre: Drama, Music

IMDb rating: 8.1/10

Rotten Tomatoes: 77%

When Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger join hands, pop culture explodes. That’s exactly what happened when the two legends came together to work on a TV show that explores the music scene of the ’70s.

Vinyl is the story of a music record executive and his ups and downs in the music industry. How he manages to keep his label running while also being instrumental to a murder makes for the central plot of the show.

25. Show Me A Hero (2015)

Genre: Drama, History

IMDb rating: 8.2/10

Rotten Tomatoes: 97%

You would think the last entry in the list would not be as good as the first few ones, but that’s not the kind of list this is.
