Being confined to our homes means looking for distractions when we’re just plain bored with the everyday routines. Some people prefer playing casino games like virtual roulette, slot machines and video poker via the internet as they can no longer visit their favourite land-based gaming houses in person. Websites like the Vulkan Vegas Casino are some of the best online platforms which offer Canadians an unlimited variety of games cutting across different categories.
For other people in Canada, watching TV shows is their ultimate form of killing time. Such individuals look for binge-worthy shows that they can watch for hours nonstop without a hint of boredom. If that is how you prefer to relax, then here’s a highlight of the most popular shows that are currently trending in Canada:
Ginny and Georgia
This new favourite is a story that mostly captures the experiences of a young white mom, Georgia, and her black teenage daughter, Ginny. Georgia moves to Wellbury from Texas with her two kids, after her husband’s sudden death in search of new beginnings.
We all know that Canadians cannot just help it when it comes to medical dramas. One of Canada’s favourite TV shows of all time is The Good Doctor. As such, New Amsterdam combines little bits of this all-time heartthrob with some Grey’s Anatomy fairy dust to bring a magical new production that is definitely binge-worthy.
Dr. Max Godwin resolves to reform the whole patient handling system at New Amsterdam, after being appointed as the medical director of the rather drab facility. But professional problems are not the only challenges he has to face.
We just mentioned this medical drama that premiered way back in 2005. Well, it seems Canadians are not yet done with it. Viewers have been bingeing and repeating the cycle in anticipation of season 18. Being a production of the celebrated Shonda Rhymes, it is no wonder that the series continues to enjoy such success.
This old-timer is not leaving Canadian streaming screens anytime soon. For those looking for a good laugh while understanding the different societal stereotypes, Modern Family is the perfect show. It has been one of those shows that create such a connection with the viewer that you start to relate with the range of stories depicted. The story revolves around the extended Pritchett family as they deal with different situations while bringing much-needed laughter to our living rooms.
Behind Her Eyes
Some of the best productions have come from books, and Behind Her Eyes is one such production. This British supernatural thriller has a new twist to its plot and has kept viewers hooked and in a continuous state of guessing. The entanglement between a couple and a single mother unearths some interesting details about the characters in this TV show that also features astral projection, with certain characters using it to manipulate fate.
Age of Samurai: Battle for Japan
Samurai movies and TV shows have always been admired for the portrayal of loyalty, honour and discipline that is always a major feature of martial art films. The docu-drama is set in 16th century Japan where warlords are at war for control of Japan, and it is based on one of the darkest, most violent periods of Japanese history.
A celebration of genuine friendship, this new Netflix sensation is a story of two girls who were drawn to each other as teenagers living on Firefly Lane. Tully Hart (played by Katherine Heigl) and Kate Mularkey (Sarah Chalke) met when they were 15 and forged a friendship that has undergone a major evolution and has since grown up to take its place in adulthood. Tully is now a super successful primetime talk show host, while Kate, her best friend, is a divorced housewife who wants to pick up her pieces and rebuild her life.
Canadians love a good laugh, and this sitcom provides just that. We are taken on an adventure with retail chain employees who have to figure out their individual lives and still deal with some interesting characters in their customer base. Unfortunately, five seasons down the line, the show has been discontinued, but not without having stolen the hearts of millions of Canadians.
This story about the dysfunctional Gallagher family has been a popular one since its debut in 2011. 11 seasons later, and it hasn’t lost its touch. Viewers continue to be fascinated by the self-sabotaging decisions always made by this family and their shared hatred for their narcissistic patriarch Frank. The occasional light at the end of the tunnel is often thwarted by someone close, creating a vicious cycle of betrayals.
It is no surprise that Bridgerton made this list as it has been topping lists since its debut on Christmas Day 2020. With only the first season out, this Shonda Rhimes series has created quite a hype on social media since the Duke of Hastings and Daphne have dominated people’s dreams across the globe, and Canada is no different.
Set in the regency-era, the storyline is based on Julia Quinn’s novel series with the same name. A young Miss Bridgerton sets out to find herself a husband in her first season out as a debutante.
