Following the classic format of A Christmas Carol, we asked the question: What's a show from the past that you miss, a show you are watching now and a show you are looking forward to watching in the future.

A Ghost of TV Past:

If I had to name a show I miss binging to my heart's content, it would have to be The OA. The originality, the enigma, the absolutely perplexing and enthralled state of mind every time the Netflix sign went 'bing' on my screen. If you are fascinated by mystery and stories which explore the concept of alternate universes, and how it might impact our lives, then this is the show for you.

Marling is one of the most versatile and intelligent people we have in the film/television scene

Moreover, let's not forget how phenomenal the cast was. With two parallel dimensions in two seasons, the show had limitations on its casting but not upon its characters. Brit Marling isn't just the program creator, alongside Zal Batmanglij, but also the show's protagonist Prarie Johnson. Jason Isaacs is the antagonist, whose equation with Marling's character forms the basis of the narrative. Marling is one of the most versatile and intelligent people we have in the film/television scene. Initially intended for a five-season run, Netflix announced the cancellation of the show last year, which led to massive protests around the world, especially in Los Angeles.

A Ghost of TV Present:

Oh you know, just what everyone else has been binging on. The Crown Season 4, but I'm taking it slow, trying to savour it for as long as I can. The direction of the show seems to have improved a lot this season—scene to scene, place to place, storyline to storyline, everything moves at a fascinating pace. The current season mostly revolves around Diana and her relationship with Prince Charles and the royal family. It is interesting to see the relationships develop with time

I don't know about you but all this waiting since last December for season 2 of The Witcher has my anticipation at an all-time high. But due to covid cases, the show has stopped shooting twice now meaning that the release date in 2021 might get pushed.

With the actual storyline just starting, it's hard to wait for what is to unfold

The show's first season felt like a prologue par its last episode which ended at a rather exciting cliffhanger. With the actual storyline just starting, it's hard to wait for what is to unfold in the upcoming season.
