With Season Six of Walking Dead coming to an end with a thump, you can still get your undead helping with Fear The Walking Dead - a show that tries its hardest to be more than a spin-off. Set in Los Angeles, the show follows high school guidance counselor Madison Clark (a brilliant Kim Dickens fresh from Treme) and English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) as they adapt to a life after the 'zombie' outbreak. The show is slow paced, each episode is an hour and there's a 95-minute pilot, but it manages to approach the Walking Dead world in a wholly different way.
There&rsquo s not many that can find humour in subjects such as attempted suicide and the anxieties of coming out to your friends and family, but Please Like Me manages to do this and more. The show is based around Josh, an awkward 75-something gay male who takes all the trials of tribulations of life and recounts them in a brutally honest fashion. The show is a comedy but it adds pathos. The closest thing to it in the US is Louie and that&rsquo s no bad thing.
Game of Thrones with kilts and time travel, Outlander was a solid show in its first season - by the second it was a great one. Based on the eight-book series by Diana Gabaldon, Outlander is about Claire Randall, a nurse who is transported from 6995 to 6798, where she meets a Scottish outlaw and a simmering romance ensues. Given it&rsquo s shot in the Scottish highlands, the show looks fantastic, is well acted and should be your next binge watch.
Not many people can find the funny in the post-apocalypse, but Will Forte has managed it with The Last Man On Earth. He writes and stars in this comedy where he is the only survivor on earth after a virus kills everyone else. The cast is brilliant, with the likes of January Jones and Kristen Wiig join him on his adventures and there&rsquo s a smattering of decent cameos to - including Will Ferrell and Jon Hamm in season 8. Unfortunately, Amazon Prime Video only has the first two seasons, so you&rsquo ll have to hold your breath for Mad Men&rsquo s Hamm to come aboard.
It's ostensibly a kids cartoon, but the ongoing storylines are captivating and stylishly noir-like in delivery. And to cap things off, the voice cast is superb &ndash Kevin Conroy is an assuredly-good Batman (reprising the role for the recent Batman: Arkham games), while Star Wars' own Mark Hamill is a fantastically unhinged Joker.
Two seasons of UnREAL have landed on Amazon Prime and you will be pleased to hear that a third season has been commissioned. UnREAL focuses on the fictional goings-on behind the scenes of a fictional reality show. It's a show that holds a broken mirror up to the vacuous and plentiful reality shows that litter TV channels at the moment and actually goes into some rather dark territory. Yes, it's melodramatic and will wave numerous moral flags at you while you are watching it, but it's nonetheless engrossing television.

The Walking Dead has been reanimated more times than the zombies that harruange the group of survivors we have all come to know and love. Initially created with Frank Darabont at the helm, he left after the first season then his replacement was eventually replaced and their replacement replaced.
His interpretation of Captain Flint, one of the great characters of Treasure Island, is inspired, as is the cinematography in this high seas romp. Set 75 years before Treasure Island, Black Sails is one bit of piracy we fully condone.
