Best Starz Shows of All Time
We don’t often hear the Starz name like HBO and Netflix because it doesn’t produce content just for viewing pleasure. Owned by Lions Gate Media, Starz is a television network that offers jaw-dropping shows and dramas that can turn your otherwise boring day into a dazzling one.
We’ve curated a list of the top 5 shows on Starz to help you get started with this enchanted network.
Spartacus (3 seasons, a prequel miniseries)
This series is a fictional historical drama based on the slave rebellions led by Spartacus from 73 to 70 BCE. Spartacus was a Thracian warrior enslaved by the Romans to work as a gladiator. He forced to fight with other men inside a ring for entertainment.
The series covers the uprising of Spartacus as he embarks on the fight against the Romans and their cruel, unjust and appalling system of slavery. That’s why Spartacus is one of Starz’s best shows.
Ash vs Evil Dead (3 seasons)
With Sam Raimi, the creator of the Spider-Man trilogy, as showrunner, you can be assured this series is packed with gory humor and action. A sequel to the original films begins 30 years after these events.
Ash is now enjoying his new life without adventure, and he is bored and reckless. And in this reckless behavior, he accidentally releases Deadites. So now Ash must fight those demons again with his chainsaw style to ensure everyone’s survival.
Outlander (6 seasons)
Everyone has heard of Outlander at least once. It is probably the most famous production of the Starz network. It revolves around the quirky adventures of a World War II nurse, who mysteriously travels back in time to Scotland in 1743.
The nurse then begins to fall in love with a Highlander. She struggles with her emotions as she cannot let go of her World War II husband, nor fall in love with a Highlander. This inevitable balance between love and loss has made the series mainstream. It also has it in this list of top Starz shows.
Black Sails (4 seasons)
A prequel to the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson treasure island manifests the island of New Providence of 40 years ago. The island has it all – thieves, pirates and money. But now he is under threat from British and Spanish forces.
Flint, a pirate, must fight with them to establish the safety of their beloved home. And he does; he fights bravely, even this seemingly lost fight – perhaps that’s why he kept the audience spellbound.
Power (6 seasons)
James “Ghost” St. Patrick, the owner of Truth, a nightclub and drug dealing caterer only for high profile customers. Living a double life, Patrick tries to get completely legit, but as we all know, that’s easier said than done.
With four proportionally famous spin-offs, Power is a dark and ambiguous storyline. It is also co-produced by co-stars Curtis “50 Cents” Jackson. Power perfectly exemplifies Manhattan’s affluent lifestyle and its dark and colossal secrets.
