Sample Answer:
I often watch television series and Outlander appears as the best one to me. This Tv serial is about time travel. Outlander is a drama series and the theme is developed based on some historical events and time travelling through the events. A nurse from the Second World War period is taken back to the 1743 and she encounters a good number of events. This is really an interesting television series I have seen so far. This is a great cue card topic for me and I will describe the events now.

Two seasons of the series has been aired so far. In those episodes and some of the characters have been recurred in the second series. Caitriona Balfe plays the role of Claire Beauchamp Randall/Fraser in the first series while it was also starred by Sam Heughan on the role of James with Tobias Menzies on the role of Frank Randall, Laura Donnelly as Jenny Fraser, Duncan Lacroix as Murtagh Fraser, Steven Cree as Ian Murray among others.

The first season had 16 episodes together, and the first eight episodes were aired in August in 2014 and September of the same year. And the remaining eight episodes of the series of the first season was aired in April of 2015 and ended by May of the same year. The second season of the series was aired in April of 2016 and ended by July of the same year. Interestingly, the date of the third season will be announced soon.  

This is highly an interesting series to enjoy. Traveling through time and getting involved in different activities really make me thrilled. When a woman of this century gets back in a former century and tries to survive amid troubles. Moreover, the writing style, casting, and other dramatic elements make it worth to watch.

1. The walking dead is my favourite television show. It is aired based on series. And this is all about zombies and apocalyptic events. A notable number of people have starred in the series.
