We at LikeAble have put together a selection of new TV shows that both audiences and critics have been enjoying this season.

Mickie Murphy, whose lifestyle is — to put it politely — not exactly what you’d call quiet or modest, moves to a small prosperous town. Her sister was forced, along with her partner, to go on the run from the FBI, and Mickie is left to look after their children. The first thing she discovers is that children can be one of life’s major challenges.

Starring: Tom Hardy, Leo Bill

The beginning of the 19th century. After 10 years spent in Africa, James Delaney returns to London. He has 14 stolen diamonds, a small piece of land by the sea, and a desire to establish a trade monopoly with China. The semi-mystical atmosphere of the British capital as it was 200 years ago and the “negative charm” of the main character make this serial one of the best of the past few years.

Starring: KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart

The plot of Riverdale is based on the Archie comics, and it bears a certain resemblance to Twin Peaks. At the center of events is a group of teenagers who live in the small town of Riverdale. At first glance, the show seems like yet another teenage drama. But it soon becomes clear that this is something far more interesting: the teenagers in this story decided to find out what secrets their sleepy, quiet town is hiding from them.

Queen Victoria is perhaps the most famous monarch Britain ever had, ruling her country for a total of 63 years.

But when she first ascended the throne, the country was suffering from economic decline, and the monarchy, in reality, had very limited power.
