#Pirated: Best TV Shows of 2022

Written By Odanta HQ

The magnificent Star Wars series Andor, wraps up the 2022 TV season, and even though the Last of Us is right around the corner, we believe we might be saying goodbye to a rocky, yet gorgeous, year for television. 

 

So what does #Pirated mean? Well, we at Odanta believe two of the biggest dangers to content are year-end wraps and piracy. So why not combine the two? Presenting our very own guide to the best TV that came out this year.

 

White Lotus: 

 

 

How many people have the theme song in their workout playlist? All? Yeah, thought so. 

 

This show isn’t about rich people on vacation. It isn’t even about how sex is used as a tool for manipulation and greed. It’s mostly a feeling, a vibe. Jennifer Coolidge crying braying on a Sicilian rooftop has a special place in our heart just because.

 

Maybe we Indians should finally realise what rich people on vacation truly are. Miserable. An anti Dil Dhadakne Do is exactly what India needs right about now.

 

Andor:

 

 

“I’m condemned to use the tools of my enemy to defeat them. I burn my decency for someone else’s future. I burn my life to make a sunrise that I know I’ll never see. And the ego that started this fight will never have a mirror or an audience or the light of gratitude. So what do I sacrifice?

 

EVERYTHING!”

 

Episode 10 of Andor has not one, but two, memorable soliloquies that solidify the two sides of rebellion. Freedom and the fight against evil. Andy Serkis raises his men-at-arms to freedom while Stellan Skarsgard chews the bitter truth of it. 

 

That’s what surprised us the most. The real star of this story isn’t a Jedi, or a tiny Yoda. It’s not even the titular character, Cassian Andor. It is the rebellion itself. It celebrates the idea of men and women standing up against the darkness, no matter the cost. And its cost is high. 

 

Rocket Boys:

 

 

Every year an Indian web series drops that puts your faith back in TV. It was Sacred Games in 2018, Paatal Lok in 2020 and now Rocket Boys in 2022. It is one of the finest, patriotic, and cheeky stories to ever come out of the India. The focus on the friendship of Vikram Sarabhai and Homi Bhabha was powerful enough to change the annals of space science and nuclear energy, as well as the Hindi web medium.

 

A lot can be said about the acting (no better chemistry between its leads than in RRR), the subject, but we believe it is the splendid production design that elevates it beyond the crap we see. How impressive it is to transported into an era when a bullock cart-driven nation was struggling to take a leap.
