Missing Game of Thrones? Here Are 23 ‘Angrezi' TV Series To Watch, Instead

By Syed Saad | 18 Sep, 2017

As a Game of Thrones fan, life must be hard for you. No more GOT spoiler induced memes on your social media feed, no more weekly wait for the next episode; at least till the next season. If you’re in search for quality, binge-worthy, intellectual and really good TV series.

 

Note: The list is in no specific order, it’s my list of tv shows which I think you might find different and also don’t be an a-hole by commenting “oh you didn’t add breaking bad or some other popular/main-stream show”, just don’t!

Black Jesus

Adult Swim is never afraid to go beyond the boundaries of what most people consider good taste, so the not-necessarily-PC premise of this show shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone. “Black Jesus” spotlights Jesus living in modern-day Compton, Calif., trying to spread love and kindness throughout his neighborhood on a daily basis. Mostly assisting in his mission is a small-but-loyal group of downtrodden followers. The live-action series was created by Aaron McGruder, who previously brought the animated favorite “The Boondocks” to Adult Swim.

“Eastbound & Down” creators Danny McBride and Jody Hill team again for a dark comedy series — no surprise there! — that may place high school administrators in a wholly different light.
