Who doesn’t love to binge watch shows these days? It’s pretty much the best after work activity to date. And you can find a little of everything for everyone. And the weirdest stuff, oh the weirdest stuff. There’s plenty of that.
Here are some of the weirdest shows to stream.
Attack on Titan
Japanese anime is more common and popular than ever before. It’s full of imagination and mysteries. And this series is no exception. It’s weirder and deeper than most and dives into its own universe. It’s got dark fantasy and steampunk seasons, along with plot points and characters that all add up to one thing, a lot of weird.
This show is the weirdest of them all. It’s based on modern society with regard to technology. Each episode is its own standalone show and is usually set in an alternate present or near the future. Most of the shows have a dark and satirical tone but some are lighter. They are all the weirdest and this is easily the weirdest show I’ve ever watched.
This throwback 80s show is definitely strange and weird and the people love it. The show focuses on this group of middle school friends and their lives. Will finds Eleven and she has powers. There is also the upside-down which is a shadowy dark version of the world. Stranger Things is a mashup of all that was good in the 80s like “E.T.” and “The Goonies.” The best part of this show is the way it almost enables you to feel the wonder of a child again. And because you never know what is going to happen, so there’s that appeal , too.
The Man in The High Castle
So this show is not weird necessarily but the premise of it is something new. The Man in The High Castle depicts what life would be like in the United States if Germany had won World War II. America is dominated by the Nazi Germans, with an area controlled by Imperial Japan and an area referred to as the neutral zone. A woman discovers mysterious tapes that seemingly hold all the secrets needed to knock down the totalitarian regime.
This show deals with life, death, hope, and the afterlife. The OA leaves viewers having to take that leap of faith as it reveals its complex story in surprising and weird ways. The actors add to the show with performances that intrigue to audience and leave them wanting more.
Under The Dome
The residents of the fictional small town of Chester’s Mill are suddenly trapped under a massive, transparent, and indestructible dome that cuts them off from the rest of the world in this series. There are lots of mysteries that come from under the dome. And at one point, there are several people who “make it out of the dome,” but then go back to save and lead the others to the outside world. Of course it doesn’t work and everyone is once again under the dome, and its control.
