GREAT TV BOX SETS NOT TO BE MISSED

One of the many great things about Prometheus is that it gives you the opportunity to watch what you want when you want to watch it. Over the years there have been countless amazing television shows which have graced our screens but in the past we simply did not have the time to watch them, or we missed an episode and never came back. Well by using the Genesis on your Prometheus you can pretty much find any television show past or present, sit back and enjoy the show in your time. Prometheus give users whether your 18 or 68 years of age, we all have our favourite TV shows some may not be shown on regular television any more but they are more than likely on Prometheus via the Genesis add-on. All you need to do is search, set up a shortcut and enjoy.

I have hand selected some amazing tv box sets which I feel are some of the best ones out there, every episode of every season is readily available right now on Genesis.

BREAKING BAD

One that if you’ve not yet seen it is certainly one that you’ve heard of. Up there in my personal opinion as one of the greatest tv shows of its time and worthy of it’s spot on the list of great tv box sets. This show is a must watch, the first episode is a little on the slower side but give it a little time and you’re bound to fall in love with the show, the cast and the plot. Fantastic entertainment.

PLOT – “A chemistry teacher diagnosed with a terminal lung cancer, teams up with his former student, Jesse Pinkman, to cook and sell crystal meth” IMDB

# OF SEASONS – 5 (2008 – 2013)

THE WIRE

This is a clever show which shows the drug trade in Baltamore from the eyes of both the dealers and the police. Each season focuses on a single case rather than each episode being a different story. You get to see the case unfold throughout the season which in my opinion is a good idea. Certainly one to watch and was voted as one of the best tv shows of all time.

PLOT – Baltimore drug scene, seen through the eyes of drug dealers, and law enforcement. IMDB

# OF SEASONS – 5 (2002 – 2008)

THE INBETWEENERS – (UK VERSION, ORIGINAL)

An awkwardly hilariously television show over here in the UK, based around four college mates who basically only have two things on their mind, beer and girls. Great TV show packed with fun adult humour. If you’re considering giving this a watch make sure you watch the UK version and not the USA take on the show.

PLOT – “The exploits of four friends, who are socially only marginally above what one of them calls “the freaks”, are presented as they grow from their late teen years into adults and as they go on their quest, usually unsuccessfully, for such grown up things as beer and sex. ” IMDB
# OF SEASONS – 3 (2008 – 2010)

PRISON BREAK

Addictive jailbreak television show based around two brothers. One of which is framed for murder and is facing the death penalty and the other who has a photographic memory and imprisons himself to break his brother free and prove his innocence.

PLOT – “Due to a political conspiracy an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out from the inside out.” IMDB
# OF SEASONS – 4 (2004 – 2009)

DEXTER

Dexter is one of those great, highly addictive shows which you get hooked on right from the start. Dexter is a blood splatter analysts for the Miami Police Department who has a dark side, he’s a serial killer. Playing on his analysts skills he literally gets away with murder. But who are his targets and why is he targeting them? A must watch in my opinion.

PLOT – A Miami police forensics expert moonlights as a serial killer of criminals whom he believes have escaped justice. IMDB

# OF SEASONS – 8 (2006 – 2013)

GAME OF THRONES

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years and have not even heard of Game of Thrones then you don’t know what you’re missing. GOT is up there with one of the most expensive television shows ever produced which will keep you entertained throughout. GOT in my opinions is another fantastically thought out shows which focuses on a group of families who essentially are looking to take control of a kingdom. With fire breathing dragons and some epic fight scenes this is certainly one to bookmark. Season 5 is due to air in April 2015 and I believe that a further season is scheduled for 2016.

PLOT – Several noble families fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros.
IMDB
# OF SEASONS – 4, Season 5 to air in April 2015 and season 6 to air in 2016. (2011 – 2016)

SONS OF ANARCHY

Another highly addicitive show, circling around a group of bikers who are in the arms dealing industy. At first I was a little skeptical about this show but after hearing great things about it I decided to give it a go, so glad I did. A fantastic show, well written with a on the edge of your seat plot each season.

PLOT – A man in his early 30s struggles to find a balance in his life between being a new dad and his involvement in a motorcycle club. IMDB
# OF SEASONS – 7 (2008 – 2014)

WEEDS

It’s a show that not many have heard over here in the UK, as a Showtime original it should have potential to be good. Focused around a single mother who is raising 3 kids and takes on the role of the neighbourhood weed dealer in order to pay the bills, quickly realising that she is really quite good at it.

PLOT – When a suburban mother turns to dealing marijuana in order to maintain her privileged lifestyle after her husband dies, she finds out just how addicted her entire neighbourhood already is. IMDB
# OF SEASONS – 8 (2005 – 2012)

PEAKY BLINDERS

A fantastic show based around the true story of the Peaky Blinders, a notorious gang in post war Britain. Renown for sowing razor blades in the peaks of their hats. This show is still on going and season 3 is sure to be one to watch. So if you’ve not yet watched Peaky Blinders, search for it now on Genesis and get caught up, you wont regret it!

PLOT – A gangster family epic set in 1919 Birmingham, England and centred on a gang who sew razor blades in the peaks of their caps, and their fierce boss Tommy Shelby, who means to move up in the world. IMDB

# OF SEASONS – 2, Season 3 coming in 2015. (2014-Present)

BAND OF BROTHERS

A 10 part mini series, may not be considered a box set to some but still worthy of being on this list of amazing shows. The show focuses the true events of an Air Bourn division from training to playing a massive part in World War II. This really is a must watch.

PLOT – The story of Easy Company of the US Army 101st Airborne division and their mission in WWII Europe from Operation Overlord through V-J Day. IMDB

# OF SEASONS – 1 (2001)

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

Entertaining comedy show surrounding a woman from a good background who is sentenced to jail time for transporting drug money for her lesbian lover 10 years prior. Greatly entertaining show, a Netflix Original series on Prometheus. Yes, it can be done. Enjoy.

PLOT – The story of Piper Chapman, a woman in her thirties who is sentenced to fifteen months in prison after being convicted of a decade-old crime of transporting money for her drug-dealing girlfriend. IMDB

# OF SEASONS – 3 (2013 – 2015)

THE WALKING DEAD

Where do you start with this one, it’s another that has been around for a few years now but there are still some tv buffs who claim that they have not seen it. Seriously, why!? It’s one of those zombie bashing, gut spilling tv shows with some highly graphic scenes it’s certainly worthy of being on this list. Similar to those famous zombie movies of old, however in those you never really see how people survive and move forward as the movie is over in 2 hours. Not with Walking Dead, you’ve got a good 6 seasons of this story line which is brilliant.

PLOT – Sheriff’s Deputy Rick Grimes leads a group of survivors in a world overrun by zombies. IMDB
# OF SEASONS – 6 (2010 – Present)

THE SOPRANOS

A gangster series at its very best. Voted as one the most popular tv shows of all time, this is a must watch if you’re into your mob films and shows. Tony Soprano,
one of the most iconic characters in tv struggles to balance his personal and family life with business and being a mob boss. Very entertaining show, a must watch!

PLOT – New Jersey mob boss, Tony Soprano, deals with personal and professional issues in his home and business life. IMDB
# OF SEASONS – 6 (1999 – 2007)

RAY DONOVAN

Ray Donavan has been said to be the modern day Sopranos, I can see where people are coming from with this. Ray Donavan is not what you call a traditional gangster but what they call a problem solver who is employed by the rich to solve their issues. Like the Sopranos he struggles to balance his day job with his family life. Highly entertaining show, a must watch.

PLOT – Ray Donovan, a professional “fixer” for the rich and famous in LA, can make anyone’s problems disappear except those created by his own family. IMDB

# OF SEASONS – 3 (2013 – 2015)

SUITS

A smart comedy which is certainly worth watching with your partner. Focuses on a college dropout who has a photographic memory and uses it to become an attorney at law in one of the largest and most successful firms in New York. Watch the story unfold and enjoy. Certainly one for a weekend in.

PLOT – On the run from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross, a brilliant college-dropout, finds himself a job working with Harvey Spector, one of New York City’s best lawyers. IMDB

# OF SEASONS – 5 (2011 – 2015)
