5 New TV Series That Made My 2018

So many TV shows aired in 2018, old ones returning and new ones premiered.

I watched less TV series this year unlike last year that I watched a lot of series, thanks to IT/SIWES.

Out of the new TV series that premiered this year, I was able to see few. So, I decided to list the 5 New Tv Series that made my 2018.

The Series are in no particular order

The Chi

The Chi is about a working-class, predominantly black South Side of Chicago neighborhood which carries different daily danger where the smallest and simplest of decisions can have life or death consequences for the residents

Life continues as the kids prep for school and their parents shuffle off to work. The young adults of the area are trying to scrape a living for themselves, while the elders sit on their front porches and observe the goings on.

The South Side has the potential to crush dreams, and this  series focuses on Kevin, a preteen who embraces the normal rites of childhood, Brandon, who makes a leap of faith to succeed in love and life with Jerrika, Emmett, who seeks guidance from his mother, and Ronnie, who is a drifter struggling to be loved. All of them are linked together by sheer coincidence as they seek redemption.

As a young man, Jefferson Pierce donned the suit of a vigilante and protected the streets of his city, but he believed he’d left those days in the past.

He learns that life doesn’t always work out as planned when his daughter, Jennifer a star student who is determined to achieve justice at any cost gets recruited by a street gang.

In order to protect his family, Jefferson sees no choice but to once again become Black Lightning.

Seven Seconds

One of the few series that made me cry 😢.

When 15-year-old black cyclist Brenton Butler dies in a hit-and-run accident — with a white police officer behind the wheel of the vehicle in Jersey City. The  city explodes with racial tension.

The series explores the aftermath of the accident, which includes an attempted cover-up by the police department and a volatile trial.

Assistant lawyer KJ ,wants to prosecute the hit-and-run as a hate crime, in addition to a negligent homicide. The longer the case drags on without a resolution, the more tense the situation becomes

Narcos Mexico

A spinoff of Narcos that talks about  the time between an up-and-coming drug lord, Felix Gallardo and dogged DEA agent Kiki Camerena.

The story turned from cocaine to marijuana and ultimately back to cocaine, but what really grounded the story (which featured a lot of drug-fueled diversions and history lessons about corrupt Mexican leaders) were the stories of these two men. Both were obsessed with their jobs, to the point where nothing else ultimately compared.

Luna, in particular, was exceptional as a smart and driven man who becomes eaten up by his drive for power and success in a way that we truly feel and see. His vulnerabilities and uncertainties made for some of the series’ best moments, particularly the one where he and Kiki come face to face, and a decision is made that altered the drug war forever.

Killing Eve

Eve’s life as a spy is not adding up to what she had hoped it would be when she started. She is a bored, very smart, MI5 security officer who is very desk-bound. Villanelle is a very talented killer, mercurial in mood, who clings to the luxuries of her job.
