Often the best way to discover great TV shows is to get reliable recommendations from your besties and like-minded friends.

So today I’ve teamed up with SKY so we can all share some of our top small screen picks and discover something new and exciting to watch.
To kick things off I’m sharing a few of my faves below and then I’d love you to scroll down to the bottom of the page and share yours. Everyone who shares their top TV shows goes in the draw to win a premium SKY snack pack and a luxurious faux fur throw. Easy right?
LEONIE’S SKY FAVES
#1 Game of Thrones
It’s hardly surprising Game of Thrones cleaned up at the recent Emmy Awards -it’s hands-down one of my all-time TV faves. Yep I appreciate that’s a big call but it’s true. The series has everything you’d expect from a medieval drama, fiery dragons, blood-letting, power struggles and passion. The only downside is we all have to wait until next year (2019) for the last and final series (season 8) to air. But in the meantime, there are seven incredible seasons to watch (if you haven’t already) or if you want re-watch (like me) a series that keeps you on the edge of your seat then this is it.
Take a sneak peek at some of the action below.
If you’re looking for a series that challenges your own reality and even gets you questioning humanity then this is it.
The show is based around a Wild West themed amusement park where the residents are humanlike robots created for the gratification of people who pay to visit. The robots (known as hosts) cannot harm the guests but guests can do whatever they like to the hosts – making for riveting, cant-look-away viewing. It’s the only show I’ve watched where I often have absolutely no idea what is going on but I actually think that is part of the plan. There are so many fantastical twists and turns in this show that it’s a definite must-see in my mind.
Take a look at the Season 2 trailer below to get a taste of the action.
#3 Mayans M.C.
This is a brand new series and I’ve only watched the first few eps but I’m already hooked. It’s basically a Sons of Anarchy spinoff series (I didn’t watch it but you don’t need to have seen it) that takes place in the same fictional universe and deals with the Sons’ rivals-turned-allies, the Mayans Motorcycle Club. So if you’re not adverse to seeing badass boys with rock hard abs racing around on Harleys while dodging the law with their dirty drug deals you’re going to love it.
Take a look at the Season 1 trailer below and get ready to ride.

#4 The Deuce
I was drawn to this series because I love Maggie Gyllenhaal and she and the show haven’t disappointed. In a nutshell, The Deuce is a drama about the rise of the porn industry in New York back in the early 1970s. It’s a sexy series that has a little bit of everything you’d expect including, drug busts, police corruption and a sneak peak at the seedy underworld of the porn industry.

#5 Strange Angel
This series is based on the weird and wacky life of rocket scientist Jack Parsons who died back in the 1950s when one of his experiments exploded. He built rockets for the government by day and dabbled in all kinds of mysterious occult type sex magic at night. I’m a newbie to this one too but it’s safe to say I’m already riveted.
