There are so many shows that we casually watch and so little ones that we actually bond with. It takes an outstanding cast and an equally brilliant storyline to make the watchers fall in love with the show. Here are some TV series that started off on a regular basis, but all it took was the plot twists to get us all hooked till the very end of the show.
HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER: The breathtaking cliff-hanger in its pilot really got us all. Some students were visible burning somebody; however, when we realized its Annalise’s husband, we really had nothing left to say.
HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER: The pilot seemed like a sweet comedy. Although towards the end when Robin mentioned that the story was actually about him and Robin, it got us all curious.
MODERN FAMILY: The show was based on the stories of three separate families that did not have any significant connection. Or at least that is what the watchers thought. However, towards the end, it was revealed that the families were interrelated.
THIS IS US: The show is about the lives of three siblings, depicted in the present and the past, through flashbacks. We were all shocked when it was revealed that Kevin, Kate, and Randall were all Rebecca and Jack’s children and that the ongoing scene was actually from the 1980s.
THE GOOD PLACE: The concept of this show revolves around ‘The good place,’ and ‘The bad place.’ Eleanor mentions that she doesn’t belong in the good place because her life data is incorrect. This hooked us up to see what had happened.
ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK: After all their ups and downs, it was extremely funny when the two ended up in the same prison.
LOST: The watchers were so caught up in the plane crash, nobody saw the smoke monster coming.
ORPHAN BLACK: Remember the suicide scene of the mystery woman? Sara noticed that she and the lady had identical faces.
MAD MEN: The pilot made Don look like a bachelor who doesn’t believe in love. Although, towards the end when he went home to a wife and a kid, nobody could believe it.
DEAD TO ME: The death of Jen’s husband was absolutely sad and emotional. However, when they revealed that the killer was Judy, we didn’t know what to feel about it.
CRUEL SUMMER: Every part of Kate’s kidnap was brutal. However, no one anticipated that it was the vice principal Martin was behind it. And to top it off, Kate revealed that Jeanette knew about the kidnapping all this while.
ONCE UPON A TIME: We all thought that the prince charming was dead. But we were wrong. Watching him on the hospital bed was the happiest plot twist.
ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING: All this time, Mabel knew the murder victim!
THE BOYS: The sad separation of Hughie and his girlfriend. As much as we adored the couple, no one could see her death coming.
BLACK MIRROR: When the princess was kidnapped, the captor demanded the prime minister to have on-television sex with a pig in exchange for her release. However, it was later revealed that the princess was released half an hour before it all happened.
THE WILDS: Watchers were shaken when they realized someone knew about the girls being stranded in the wild and could have helped. But it was all intentional.
