Real life drama? No, thanks. TV drama? Yes, please! Grab some snacks and pass the remote. These four dramas that are now available to stream will make for riveting television viewing. And we think they pair perfectly with lemon pepper wings and an Orange Cinnamon Whisky Smash cocktail – you have to keep your strength up because dramatic tension will make you hungry.

Alias Grace

This adaptation from Margaret Atwood’s novel of the same name (she wrote The Handmaid’s Tale), takes place in 19th century Canada where a psychiatrist tries to determine if an Irish immigrant maid should be pardoned for murder due to insanity.


This seven episode Netflix original stars Michelle Dockery (of Downtown Abbey fame), and it’s a western with a twist. All the men in a small mining town have been killed, so it’s left to the women to uphold law and order when a bunch of baddies show up.


Two FBI agents (Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany) use criminal science to get into the minds of killers in this drama set in the late 1970s.

The Punisher

In the latest Marvel series, Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher (Jon Bernthal), sets out to find the criminals responsible for the death of his wife and children.
