6 Riveting TV Shows That Will Shake You Out Of Your End-of-Series Slump

6 Riveting TV Shows That Will Shake You Out Of Your End-of-Series Slump

We all have that time when we end a TV show and we're in search of a new one, so here are six shows that will get you out of the blues when you finish a show.

There is always a time when our favorite television shows come to an end. I know in the past year or so, there have been so many shows that I loved have ended, and it put me into mood where I only want to rewatch my favorite episodes of those series. If there's anyone that gets obssessed over TV shows, it's me. It takes something attention-grabbing to get me into a show, but once that happens, I'm hooked. Here are six TV shows that will get you out of your end-of-series slump.

1. Backstage

"Backstage" is something I didn't really expect to like. Even though it seems like it is mostly for younger audiences (being on the Disney Channel), I really enjoy it. A performing arts high school focusing on dance, art and music can bring along drama and romance in this sweet-but-sour series. Being easily relatable with modern high school events and drama, this show will not fail to amaze you. Not to mention that the actors sing and dance really well, even in their teens!

2. The Shannara Chronicles

This show is for someone who just came from a fantasy TV show slump. "The Shannara Chronicles" came back with its second season this October after a year-long break. Based off the book series, this show follows Wil, an ordinary human in a world with elves, dwarves, druids and more, who steps up alongside an elf to save the Four Lands. Will they survive on their own, or will they have to recruit some help on the way?

3. Riverdale

Most people have probably already heard of this show since it's all the rage now. The CW just can't stop coming up with the best television shows that get an audience thinking and impatiently awaiting the next episode. In a small town where everyone knows everyone, it won't be hard to find the murder of one of the town's most cherished high school students, right? We have the athlete, the prep, the outcast and the writer who won't stop until the killer in "Riverdale" is found.

4. Shadowhunters

To be honest, this show isn't for everyone, especially the people that read "The Mortal Instruments" book series and are very critical about book-to-TV adaptions. I've got to say, though, this one is a keeper. Clary Fray, a young woman who thinks she has her entire life figured out, is ready to take on the world, but when she finds out that who she thought she was is a lie, her world gets turned upside-down. With a third season on the way, "Shadowhunters" will make you cry one minute and shiver in fear during the next.

5. Stranger Things

Take this advice from someone who loves thrillers and mystery: "Stranger Things" will take you on a journey like none other. Imagine an '80s setting as we follow a set of nerdy middle schoolers whose friend goes missing due to an unknown supernatural force. When they meet someone they think can help them, they jump at the opportunity.

6. 13 Reasons Why

Although this show may come with some controversy, it is still definitely worth your time. "13 Reasons Why" will take you an emotional rollercoaster as you follow Clay Jensen while he listens to recorded tapes by Hannah Baker, a classmate who took her own life. Throughout the show, you follow Hannah's life as she experiences high school and what led her to make the decision to end her life. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
