Are you keen to connect with someone who might be classified as a ‘mature’ single? Whether you’re a young guy who has always been attracted to experienced older females, or a middle-aged male with no interest in dating younger girls, there are so many options for relationships these days – particularly if you go online. Once you’ve joined a mature women dating site, you’ll find it easy to meet your ideal partner. We’re even going to provide you with some conversational icebreakers to make bonding with a senior even easier. How about the top five mature TV shows to binge-watch?
Our first choice is a gritty series about a dysfunctional family, the Roys. This might not sound like the most appealing intro to something worthy of bingeing with your mature love interest. But you’ll quickly get drawn into this intriguing and twisting story. The family patriarch, Logan Roy, played with relish by Scottish actor Brian Cox, is facing an uncertain future where his health is concerned. This triggers the central theme of this often nail-biting drama – who is going to succeed him as the head of the Roy conglomerate? The cast all know how to command the scenes they are involved in, and you’ll soon be swept along.
This spy thriller from the UK is another recommended series that will captivate you with its extended cat and mouse game. The Eve of the title (Sandra Oh) works for British Intelligence and has been tasked with capturing a ruthless assassin, Villanelle (Jodie Comer), who works for a shadowy Russian criminal organization. Played with aplomb by Comer, the twist is that although Villanelle is a cold-blooded psychopath who conjures ever-inventive methods for dispatching her targets, she also oozes charisma. Not least with her chameleon-like ability to become different characters with unique accents. Eve is both repulsed by the behavior of her nemesis but is also drawn to her. The undeniable chemistry between the two leading protagonists is this show’s beating heart.
This may be a well-worn theme – good people who get drawn into a murky and murderous underworld by unfortunate circumstances, along the lines of the phenomenally-successful Breaking Bad. But it’s a formula that works, as this franchise is now into Series 4. Marty and Wendy Wylde (played by Jason Bateman and Laura Linney) are an average family from Chicago. But Marty’s skills at manipulating financial markets are exploited by a Mexican drugs cartel, who force him to launder millions of their ill-gotten gains in a holiday resort in the Ozarks. Along the way, the Wyldes continually face the moral dilemma as they cross the line to collaborate with bloodthirsty criminals.
Based on fantasy novels by the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, this series sets a different tone from the previous suggestions. Instead of gritty reality-based drama, we head into the realms of swordfights and mythical creatures. The titular wither is a man who has undergone extensive training to become a fighter using special powers to oppose evil forces. Henry Cavill is perfectly cast as the swashbuckling hero, Geralt of Rivia.
Our final pointer for a mature TV show is a side-splitting comedy, co-created by US comedians Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld. In many ways the forerunner of the hit series, Friends, it is also set in New York and features the daily trials and tribulations of a bunch of close buddies. The central characters are played to perfection, Jason Alexander as Jerry’s neurotic friend, George, Julia Louis-Dreyfus as his ex, Elaine, and Michael Richards as wacky next-door-neighbour, Kramer.
