Since I know that many people have been dropping Game of Thrones recently, and events in various TV shows have made me pretty tired of everything I'm watching right now, I thought it would be good to have a genre TV recommendations post. Basically, what recent fantasy/sci-fi/horror/action/non-real-life TV shows have you been enjoying that:
- Have interesting, well-written female characters, and
- Don't use rape as a plot device.
Normally I would just ask for that first one, but after the past couple of weeks of TV, I would really like a break from the second, and I'm sure other people would too.
I wish I could add my long list of recommendations here, but I have little to offer, as most of the shows I would have recommended last year have gone somewhat off the rails.
However, I will suggest The 100, as a deceptively-soapy-seeming, morally complex drama with a great cast of female characters (and leaders) with endless plot twists to keep you on your toes.
What shows would you recommend?
