With ever-increasing competition rather chaos in our lives when we are all busy playing our roles in life and striving to be the best versions of ourselves, unwinding with a good fantasy or fiction T.V. series seems like a wonderful resort. As there is nothing which can take us away from reality other than a good fantasy and or fiction.
The choices available to us these days are uncountable and the difficult part actually is to choose from amongst hundreds of the titles that one glorious one which would make us stick to our television or laptop screens for God knows six, eight or even fourteen seasons. We always need an opinion of a person who has already watched it so as to make a wise and informed decision.
Here is my personal favorite list of all the T.V. series based on fantasy which made me hooked to my laptop screen for hours and I highly recommend these.
4. The Vampire Diaries/ The Originals
To be honest, The Original was a spin-off of the series The Vampire Diaries but it is a lot better than The Vampire Diaries. Both the seasons revolve around vampires, werewolves, and witches while in The Originals the story was taken back to the first-ever vampires there were. Both the series have lots of twists and turns and interesting developments regarding the secrets of vampires, witches, and werewolves along with romanticizing their lives and showing a lighter side of their personalities.
Okay so, Merlin is a story of a sorcerer’s journey to explore his destiny which is intertwined with the destiny of the prince of that time. It has settings of ancient times when there used to be realms and kingdoms and where there used to fight with swords and on horses. The fights to claim different thrones and a difficult journey of a young magician in times when magic was prohibited are the highlight of this season.
2. Teen Wolf
Teen wolf is mainly a story of a high school boy who becomes a werewolf after being bitten. The season revolves around a bunch of high school teens who are supernatural creatures like magicians, Vampires and Benji’s, etc. and how they fight for the greater good when evil creatures start showing up in their neighborhood. Teen Wolf is a lot of things drama, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, and comedy, which make it a perfect watch.
1. The Magicians
This season is all about magic and magicians. It starts out with a school of magic i.e. Brakebill’s and moves on to the discovery of a new world which the lead guy has fantasies about. One of the main leads along with his grad school friends discover that the fantasy world which they all read about in books is actually a real place but is a danger to all the magic there ever existed. So the group embarks on a journey to save that place and in turn the magic. The story is a great mix of their student lives, love lives and their magical powers with a comic spin-off. There is a lot of other series based on supernatural beings and powers but these are by far the best yet highly underrated ones.
