As 2019 approaches a close, we have yet another great series to dive into.
"The world is ending. What will you do?"
So, how has 2019 treated you? It's been a hectic year for many reasons, but there's no denying that it's been absolutely fantastic one for television.
Netflix, Amazon, Sky and more have really stepped up their game, delivering some of the best series in recent memory. Perhaps most notably, we've had Chernobyl, which has already cemented itself as one of the greatest achievements in TV history.
Along with this, we've witnessed the conclusion of such heavy-hitters as Game of Thrones and Orange Is the New Black, as well as the return of such beloved favourites as Stranger Things. There are no signs of slowing though, thanks to the likes of 8 Days...

8 Days on Sky Atlantic
The highly anticipated 8 Days premieres in the UK on Tuesday, November 26th 2019, and will air at 10 pm on Sky Atlantic.
So, what is it?
Rafael Parente's German miniseries is comprised of eight episodes and concerns a looming meteor which is on course to collide with Earth. The giant mass is expected to crash right in the middle of Europe, with no chance of survival for those in the area.
The audience is centred with a particular family, as we chronicle their desperation to escape from the destruction set to hit. It's an intriguing and exciting premise for a series, made even better by a stellar cast.
