Pretty much everyone has a favourite television show that they could re-watch again and again. Then, of course, there are those shows that have earned the name “iconic” with how popular and gripping they are. Moreover, such shows have never been more accessible as there are several streaming platforms via which you can watch and re-watch your series of choice as many times as you want to.
Whether your favourite show is historical, fictional, or a mixture of the two, you might be looking for more ways to further immerse yourself into the world depicted on it. If you are on the lookout for ways to get even more out of your favourite iconic television series, here are a few things you can do.
Take a Tour
One of the coolest ways to see an iconic television series in a whole new way is to visit the locations where it was filmed. Some locations around the world have grown in popularity as tourist destinations because of their association with well-known series. If you are planning a trip, take a look to see if one of your favourite television shows was filmed near that location.
While some series might have been shot on a soundstage in Hollywood, making them a bit more challenging to visit, many are known for the picturesque locations where they were shot. You will want to do a bit of research to find the best destinations to visit. Still, chances are that if a specific location has been featured on an iconic television series, then there will be guided tours and plenty of information available.
For example, Silverscreen Tours offers tours of a few of the more distinguishable places that appear on the popular series Downton Abbey. Take a step back through time to 1920s England and walk the halls and grounds that the Crawley family fought so hard to keep.
Have the Right Snacks
Every good binge-watching session of an iconic television series requires that you have the right foods to snack on. There is nothing wrong with sticking to the classic television snacks like popcorn or crisps, but if you want to get more out of the show you are watching, then you should consider taking your snacks to the next level.
Fans from around the world have created cookbooks that contain recipes that use popular television shows for inspiration. A few of these books were sanctioned by the series they are based on, although others have the word “unofficial” in their titles. Don’t let that dissuade you, though, as you can be sure that the authors took on their respective projects with the intent of giving fellow fans the best taste of the show they were inspired by.
You can take it further by hosting a binge-watching night so that you and your friends can enjoy your favourite iconic TV series together. Throw together some themed snacks and drinks to help make the event one to remember.
