Exploring new television shows is a good way to relax and pass the time on a weekend night. There are many varieties of genres to choose from, whether you are watching on cable television, an internet streaming service or something else. Here are three television genres to try.
1. Game Shows
If you enjoy trivia, try watching game shows with your friends or family to see who can answer the most questions. Game shows involve contestants who engage in competitions involving luck and intelligence to win prizes in the form of monetary compensation and fame. You usually see someone only one time in a game show series, but once in a while, you can follow a player who is doing particularly well throughout an entire series or season on cable or directv Cincinnati.
Documentaries are usually about the length of a typical movie but involve a narrator explaining events and situations, usually those that are fairly recent. There are a huge variety of topics that have been made into documentaries, including those about the environment, historical events and the lives of celebrities. Documentaries are an entertaining way to learn more about a topic and see a subject from varying angles. Smaller-budget documentaries often come with the added bonus of saying right off the bat what the biases and motives for making the documentary are since it is easier to look up one or two producers than an entire team within a large corporation.
3. True Crime Series
True crime shows feature reenactments or clips of live coverage following homicide, robberies and other crimes that have happened. There is a wide variety of true crime shows, with some coming from the angle of police and detectives and others coming from the perspective of the victim’s family.
If you are in need of a new show to watch, consider these three genres.
