Pulse Movies have put together four 2016 shows every TV lover should consider/binge-watch.

Here we go:

1. "Westworld"

The next "Game of Thrones?" - "Westworld" is everything but "GOT." The HBO sci-fi western series from Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy is a more intellectual piece that offers deeper mystery with each episode.

Westworld caters to high-paying visitors dubbed, who can do whatever they wish within the park, without fear of retaliation from the hosts.
