Orange Is the New Black

Binge-watching was made popular through this series, as viewers devoured a season in one sitting over a weekend. Furthermore, this show established streaming-native television, inspiring other programmes to take an eclectic narrative approach and explore topics mainstream networks were reluctant to cover.

Kohan’s series uses Piper Chapman, a wealthy Brooklynite sent to prison for transporting drug money, as a springboard to explore Latina women, black women, and those from diverse socioeconomic classes. While these communities existed before Orange, this show has brought them into public awareness in ways no other show ever could.

The Flash

The Flash is an extraordinary superhero who uses his superhuman speed to fight crime and save lives in Central City. After accidentally inhaling heavy water vapors, college science student Barry Allen gains the ability to run faster than any bullet. Donning a red suit with lightning bolt details, he soon transforms into the Flash and fights crime as part of his crime-fighting duties.

Barry faces many foes throughout his adventures—his adopted father Detective West, Iris, and speedster Max Mercury are his main allies—from Gorilla Grodd, Captain Cold, Heat Wave, and Reverse-Flash to an energy source that allows him to access certain moments from history.

Supergirl

Supergirl blends the heart, humor, spectacle, and sophistication of superhero television with sophisticated workplace drama. At its centre is Kara Zor-El, an alien girl from Krypton with the power to fly, shoot laser beams from her eyes and outrun bullets.

The show follows her efforts to balance her secret crime-fighting life with fulfilling the needs of Fred and Edna Danvers as foster parents, as she battles both extraterrestrial villains as well as high-tech terrestrial threats possessing cloaking/shapeshifting powers.

The series follows Kara as she grapples with her Bizarro self, an alternate Earth-Prime version with mind control powers who was born from Earth-Prime’s alternate reality and also faces new waves of anti-extraterrestrial prejudice fueled by Lex Luthor’s imprisonment.
