The Gulf Today - Panorama - - Contents - SARAH TARYAM

There are so many good tele­vi­sion shows to watch just now. From Scan­dal to Grey’s Anatomy to the weird but cap­ti­vat­ing Stranger Things, TV has never been so ex­cit­ing. If you are look­ing for some­thing ex­tra to watch, do not miss the chance to catch up on the seven shows we have fea­tured this week, some of which have ended but are still avail­able to watch.

Switched at Birth was a favourite of ours at Panorama and if you haven’t watched it yet you re­ally should. The fam­ily drama, which ended this year after five sea­sons, won many awards and a le­gion of loyal fans. The story cen­tres around two girls who were, yes you guessed it, switched at birth. Since one of the girls was deaf, the show raised a lot of aware­ness about deaf cul­ture and also fea­tured many deaf ac­tors.

Start­ing in the 80s and tak­ing place over a decade, Halt and

Catch Fire has just wrapped up its fourth sea­son. The pe­riod drama cen­tres around the early days of per­sonal com­put­ing and the growth of the World Wide Web. Fea­tur­ing Lee Pace and Scoot Mcnairy, the show re­ceived pos­i­tive re­views from crit­ics and has been nom­i­nated for a num­ber of awards in­clud­ing Best Drama Se­ries at the Satel­lite Awards in 2015.

In other news, Lewis Hamil­ton has won the world cham­pi­onship for the fourth time after the Mex­i­can Grand Prix. De­spite end­ing up in ninth place and col­lid­ing with Se­bas­tian Vet­tel on the open­ing lap, the Bri­tish driver gained enough points to clinch the ti­tle. Next will be the Brazil­ian Grand Prix and then the fi­nal, which will take place in Abu Dhabi on Nov.26.
