A good TV show is a wonderful form of escapism. And that is especially true today with as many as there are. One could tune into a network or the various streaming services from the likes of Netflix, Hulu, or HBO and find some of the best stories being told on the small screen today. For most, it's too much to keep up with.
While the stories and plots are essential for a show to succeed, it is often the characters that end up carrying shows for many viewers. How their development progresses and the tough decisions they're forced to make creates an engaging experience. But with so many services and so many characters, only those who are experts in binge-watching can name all of them.
