Two dramas that won’t fail to entertain you


So, you’ve just finished your latest series and don’t know what to do next. Luckily, there are always older movies or shows that you might not know about yet and that you won’t regret watching. Here are two dramas that won’t disappoint with their strong, powerful female characters.


#1: Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl is an American teenage drama that first aired on September 19, 2007. It stars Blake Lively (Serena Vanderwoodsen), Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf), Chase Crawford (Nate Archibald), Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass), and Penn Badgley (Dan Humprey). The show is about Gossip Girl, a well-known blogger that has managed to stay anonymous-no one knows who she is. The writer follows privileged teenagers on the upper east side of NYC and reveals all of their secrets. Gossip Girl was a complete hit not only in the US but also in other countries around the world. In my opinion, Gossip Girl was such a hit because of all its drama, the great acting, and its amazing soundtrack.

The show ran until December 17, 2012, with 6 seasons. Even though it ended a long time ago, it is still one of the best shows there is and young people continue to enjoy it to this day.



#2: La Casa de Papel

La Casa de Papel is a Spanish television show that aired on December 20, 2017. It stars Ursula Corbero (Tokio), Miguel Herran (Rio), Jaime Lorente (Denver), Alba Flores (Nairobi), and Alvaro Morte (El profesor). The plot of the show is one of the best I’ve ever seen. It is set in Madrid, where a mysterious man recruits a group of eight people to rob the Fábrica Nacional de la Moneda y Timbre and walk away with 984 million euros. At least this was the plot for the first two seasons. In the next three seasons, the action and adrenaline continued, mixed in with love and, well, drama. The show ended very recently on December 3, 2021. I cried way too many times to remember when I first watched it. If there is one show I recommend, it is this one.
