Zehn aktuelle, aber eher unbekannte Serien, deren anschauen sich unbedingt lohnt

9. Dezember 2015 at 12:17

 

 

 

Wenden wir uns doch einmal kurz vom Film ab und dem Format Serie zu. Ich würde euch heute gern die eine oder andere Empfehlung aussprechen für spannende und fesselnde Serien jenseits der üblichen Verdächtigen wie Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, House of Cards, True Detective und wie sie alle heißen. Gerade angesichts der nahenden Feiertage kann sich vielleicht der eine oder andere Tipp als wertvoll erweisen. Diese Liste soll auch keineswegs wertend sein, sondern euch lediglich auf die eine oder andere Serie aufmerksam machen, deren anschauen sich wirklich lohnt, auch wenn sich ihr Bekanntheitsgrad vielleicht in Grenzen hält. Daher entfallen an dieser Stelle die sonst üblichen Platzierungen von 10 – 1.
