Vikings (Since 3-3-2013 , Season: 4 - History)
The viking Ragnar Lothbrok aims to conquer new territories in the West, but his chief wants to continue their travels to the familiar East. The tension between the two vikings rises, and culminates into a fierce battle. Very nice show for people who are into fantasy, blood en brave Scandinavian seafaring warriors.
Olivia Dunham is a FBI special agent with a complicated task: she needs to look into weird stuff, together with a scientist, his son and a junior FBI agent . Whilst doing so, they come across connections to their own lives and a paralel universe. Yes, that sounds like The X-files, but The Fringe clearly found it's own voice. Very recommendable.

A young and streetwise woman witnesses the suicide of a girl that looks just like her. She then discovers that she’s been cloned, that she has many other clones spread throughout the world and that someone wants her dead. Naturally, malicious organizations and mystic key figures come across her long and surprising journey.
