The most mind-bending shows in television history

Although there are more television shows in existence than we could count, it’s fair to say that sometimes they can get a little, well, boring. Many sitcoms all seem to have the same storylines and the same gags, crime dramas all have the same criminals and crimes, and soap operas soon become predictable. However, that isn’t always the case. There are many TV shows out there that have kept us on the edge of our seats, and allowed us the chance to scratch our heads and wonder what is going on before our eyes. Yes, these are the most mind-bending shoes in television history.


If you’re a fan of sci-fi television shows, then you’ll love this mind-bending television show. Sense8 follows eight separate people from all corners of the globe, who soon realize that they have more in common with each other than they first thought. They are both mentally and emotionally linked and are able to communicate with each other no matter where they are in the world. Although wary of their connection to begin with, the eight soon discover that they can help each other throughout their daily lives. That is until things start to go awry…


The Booth At The End

The Booth At The End first came into our lives in 2010, and it’s fair to say that this fantasy-drama caused a stir. Yes, this show gave us the chance to ask ourselves and the people around us a very important question: How far would you go to get what you want? After a group of complete strangers enter into a pact with “The Man,” they soon realize that all of their wishes can come true if they complete a task that He asks of them. The strangers soon come to question whether their wishes are really worth all of their troubles.

Orphan Black

Orphan Black was on our screens for four years before it eventually came to an end, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go back and watch it. This sci-fi thriller follows the life of Sarah Manning, a con artist who soon discovers that she is the doppelganger of a woman who had just taken her own life. Sarah assumes this new identity and starts a new life, but what she doesn’t realize is that she isn’t the only doppelganger in the world. In fact, she is just one of the many “clones” that can be found around the globe, and each and every one of them is in grave danger.


This British television show has been bending minds for many years now and follows a world where humans and “synths” exist together. The synths are designed to aid the human race, but a glitch in the system soon allows some of the robots to assume their own identities, thoughts, and feelings. These synths are deemed a danger to society, which means the hunt is on to find them before the world struggles under the weight of these new beings.

If you’re looking for a new show to binge, these are no doubt right up your street.
