Each episode opens with a different death story in the series, which begins with Ned Fisher, who leads a life of his own away from his family, after his father’s death and has to run the funeral home owned by his family. Based on the dynamics of Ned Fisher’s distant relationship with his mother Ruth, sister Claire and brother Devid, the biggest hallmark of the series is its plain and realistic narrative language. On the other hand, it is this plain and realistic language that makes the show dangerous in a way.

Fargo (IMDb: 8,9)
One of the factors that make Fargo so attractive is the seasonality of its stories. The production, which brings real murders to the screen with fictional characters, is also quite striking in terms of the relationship of its music with the script. The series, which presents a perfect example of dark humor, has managed to capture that epic atmosphere in a dizzying way, despite the 18 years between the film and the locations with the same name.
House MD (IMDb: 8,7)
House MD, which won Hugh Laurie a Golden Globe twice for his masterful acting along with his flawless American accent, is one of the best examples of medical drama. The similarity of this doctor, who plays an instrument and is addicted to drugs, who investigates the impossibilities of the diagnoses with the method of logical elimination, with the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes is followed as an unwritten subtext. The fact that both of them have 221B door numbers is a funny detail.

In an attempt to adapt the classics to the 21st century, Sherlock is a series that started as a mini-series but met with its audience for 4 seasons with the interest it received, with the BBC’s incomprehensible, intelligent scenario and its pace that advises you to follow it.

OZ (IMDb: 8,7)
OZ, which was the most striking TV series between the years 1997-2003, is also the abbreviation of the American prison named Oswald State Correctional Facility, where it was staged. The philosophical dose in the narrative of the story, which revolves around neo-Nazis, African Americans, motor gangs, Sicilian mafia, Muslims, Irish, Latinos and other prisoners in prison, makes you somehow tolerate the extreme violence it contains. However, we recommend that you be prepared for everything while watching.

Defined as “Stranger Things for Adults”, Dark lives up to its name; It is a dark series that gives the story, the shots, the lights, the colors and even the music choices.

The strange events that begin with the disappearance of two teenagers in this town where ordinary lives are lived, lead us to a story full of radioactive leakage, extraordinary experiments, supernatural powers and a time machine. We say dragging because Dark is one of those shows that you can’t let go of even if you wanted to. Dark, which has a very complex plot, is not for those who are looking for a series to distract themselves!

The science fiction classic Westworld, reinterpreted by HBO, is a dark adventure about the birth of artificial intelligence and the future of sin. The production, which is very nutritious in terms of cinematography, manages to keep the audience on their toes with a scenario that will require a lot of thought. Knowing that the movie he inspired was shot in 1973 requires a homage to a production beyond its time; because we are talking about a movie that masterfully fictionalized the idea of including robots in people’s daily lives. And it’s a good excuse to once again admire Anthony Hopkins’ sober acting.
Lost (IMDb: 8,3)
Passwords, mysteries, symbols… Lost; It is a production that makes a name for itself even between seasons, by encouraging its viewers to constantly produce theories, and changing the TV series industry from top to bottom. It all starts with the crash of Flight 815, which was on the Sydney-Los Angeles flight.

Band of Brothers (IMDb: 9,4)

It promises a thought-provoking viewing experience for those who are interested in the psychology and sociology of the war rather than the war itself.
Manhunt: Unabomber (IMDb: 8,1)
