Yes. Sadly, this season of Game of Thrones is over. After waiting almost a year for the premier and re-watching the previous seasons over and over in that time, it’s hard to see the show come and go so fast. But rest assured, there are many other great shows that we can devote just as much love to in order to keep us occupied during the dreaded wait for season five.
Here are some show ideas.
#1 Orphan Black

If you are looking for a twisty show that has you camping out by your TV for the next episode Orphan Black is the show for you. This BBC original is a heart-stopping, emotional roller coaster that has you hooked from the first episode. If you’re looking for something to take the edge off of GOTW (Game of Thrones Withdrawal) take a journey these next couple months into the heart of secret cloning projects, forced genetic mutation, and sexual innuendo with Orphan Black. You won’t be disappointed. (This is great time to catch up because they just ended the second season earlier this June)
This show is about pirates if the name didn’t already give it away. NBC’s brand new swashbuckling drama that premiered at the very end of may is definitely a must during this Game of Thrones dry season. Crossbones is another suspense filled show that will have you camping out by your TV on Friday nights. Join Tom Lowe this summer season as he attempts to evade the ever watching eyes and ever brilliant mind of Edward “Blackbeard” Teach (played by two time Oscar nominated actor John Malkovich). The show is still very early into its first season and so be one of the first to hop aboard and ride out the rest of this season’s Friday nights on NBC.
For all of us masked crusader loving fans looking for a superhero fix to help deal with the Game of Thrones post season blues, The CW’s action packed show Arrow is for you. Join Oliver Queen (AKA The Green Arrow) as he does everything humanly possible to save Starling City from the corrupt. This show really has a great storyline that takes us through the origins and early struggles of the emerald archer. The show has ended its second season in the middle of May, but don’t worry about flying through the seasons like you might Game of Thrones – each season has 23 episodes. This is a great show to invest in if you’re looking for something to really take the edge off of waiting for season five of GOT.
