Best TV Show, through actors

This is a play, not a rank.
It's a list of the best tv show on air, linking all through common actors.
It's a my maniacal satisfaction, without serious informative pursuit. But, if you are a maniac too, or if you are searching a good TV Show, this can be a very useful list.
Sort by: Showing 7 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
Michelle Ashford create one of most interesting tv shows of the serial world.
The title's pun recaps the plot easily: it talks about scientific research of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, two really existed persons that searched pratical answers to the ambiguites about sex.
Masters' curiosity and obstinacy, and Johnson's tenacity, togheter with favourable storic moment, supported to break many taboo.

Backbone of the show is the couple of players composed by Michael Sheen ("Frost/Nixon", "The Queen", and no, no relationship with Martin and Charlie) and Lizzy Caplan.
The show had good start and it's already reached to the second season. And in the second season I've seen another mean character of this TV years, BETSY BRANDT: Skyler White's violet sister. Do you understand what I'm talking about, don't you?

PS: Masters of Sex has one of the least original - but one of the most fine - title sequence of the last years.

Betsy Brandt drives us to Breaking Bad.
This TV Show is already conclused, but we can define it the cult of the last years, winner of the most important TV Awards of 2013. Have I really to talk about his plot?
It has an awesome cast. First of all: the idol Walther White (Bryan Cranston).
Not all! Vince Gilligan, the mind behind Breaking Bad, continues to keep alive his imaginary launching a spin-off about one the great characters of this serial drama: lawyer Soul Goodman.

"Better call Saul" - is the name of the spin off - is already the most expected show of the next year. Meanwhile, if you miss to see BOB ODENKIRK's face on the screen, you must whatch Fargo.

PS: Breaking Bad has a lot of merits. One of all: it make me discover the song "Crapa Pelada" of the italian Quartetto Cetra.

A Coen masterpie, without Coen. 'Cause there the two brilliant directors are not behind the camera, and they're just executive productors.
The show is inspired by a great movie of them (guess what!), but the creator is Noah Howley.
The story is complitely different from movie, but you can find all the tragical and ironic Coen's atmospheres.
Just think that one of the players of this coral story is Bill Bob Thornton, the same actor that play in the wonderful "The Man Who Wasn't There" and in other movies of the two brothers.

Personally, with this show I've find out another remarkable actor: MARTIN FREEMAN (no relationship with Morgan).
My ignorance: actually he made a lot of role, and it's sufficient that you're a fan of Tolkien to have watched him in The Hobbit as mean character.
He's famous in the serial world, too: he's part of "The Office" cast (the original version).
Not all: before Fargo, he's started to impersonate Doctor Watson in another serial cult: Sherlock.

PS: The second season of Fargo is coming, with new cast and a new story.

Guy Ritchie, master of black hyperactive comedy movies, brought on the great screen a young Sherlock Holmes, rejuvenating the myte of the famous detective.
In the same years, BBC wanted more: it launched a straordinary tv show in witch there is not just a rejuvenating of the two mean characters (roled by Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman), but there is a transposition in the London of our days.
The Show has a strange structure, at english way: just three episodes for every season. At the moment, there are three seasons, but it's coming the fourth.
Creators, executive productors and mean screenplayers are Steven Moffat and MARK GATISS.
Gatiss is one of the mean characters too.
And Gatiss, since 2014, is part of Game of Thrones cast playng the role of Tyco Nestoris of the Iron Bank.

PS: There is a funny Christmas scene in an episode of Sherlock, in witch the sociopath detective shafts the new Watson's girlfriend, swapping her for the previous Watson's flame.
That shafted girl is Oona Chaplin (now yes, surname suggests right things) and it's more and more difficult swapping for someone else: she is one of Game of Thrones' characters that you will like more.
Now: do you see that linking Sherlock and GoT was obliged?

Through a lot of coup de theatre and with a mix of genres, even who hates science fiction loved Lost.
Now, through the same tricks, even who hates fantasy loves Game of Thrones. Actually, the mixing of genres is so strong that is hard to define fantasy this tv show. In Game of Thrones you can find imaginaries world and cities, like in Smallville. Men in tunic and great battles, like in Rome. Very underhand politial plots, like in House of Cards. Frightening creatures, like in Merlin. Romantic heroes, like in Smallville (have I already say it?) and almost one-half of the Harry Potter's cast.
All of this, spiced with a powerful opening theme song to confront with another episode about blood, treasons, unjustice, hope and british humour.

PS: How many people is waiting for April?

One of the most important tv shows of our times. Black Mirror, created by Charlie Brooker, is a show that rapresents the next future in all his topic, through seven episodes (two seasons and a special episode) and seven different directors.
This Christmas Charlie Brooker has surprised us with the special episode White Christmas, a beautiful story (one of the most distressing) that have famous actors too: there were OONA CHAPLIN (i'm telling about her in "Sherlock" note) and Natalia Tena from Game of Thrones, and there was JON HAMM, the charming main character of another sofisticated tv shows (near to his conclusion): Mad Men.
Here we go. After Breaking Bad, AMC network strikes again with Mad Men: maybe the classiest tv show of our years. A great piece of history about the land of capitalism, is recounted through the deals of a bunch of advertisers. First of all, Don Draper (Jon Hamm), and his brilliant and rude mind.
At the moment we're arrived to the last season of this show, and it seems to be very expected.
Gloomy mood, able screenwriters, a lot of alchool, too much smoke and a very good cast are the perfect foundation of this show.

PS: The starting sequence is very interesting. It remind us Saul Bass.
