10 Coolest Series for Business

When I was finishing the third season of House of Cards, it came to my mind to create a selection of TV series that can be watched by all business representatives – marketing specialists, CEOs, managers and other employers that are responsible for certain domains. Their characters struggle for power, spout quotes, show an unbelievable strength of character and act as a source of inspiration for a spectator.

If about 10 years ago it was a bit disrespectful to watch series for a businessman, then nowadays they can take advantage of cinematography. And it's time to give Oscars to those who are working on suchlike pieces of art.

So, here is the selection of the coolest sitcoms that is worth seeing by every business man and woman.

1 House of Cards

Politics is a dirty thing but it doesn't mean that its lessons are to be neglected or ignored. Francis Underwood and his wife, Claire, show us an image of predators, people who step over others and have an aversion to nothing. And there certainly is what to learn from them even if you want to stay pristine :-)

Moments like this require someone who will act. The one who isn't afraid of doing the thing others don't dare to. To do the unpleasant thing. The necessary thing.


2 Mad men

If you are looking for an image of an ideal seller, here he is Donald Draper from Mad Men. He lives in the 60s, smokes cigarettes and drinks whiskey right in the office and wins the hearts of both women and clients who like to smoke.

it was not only Draper that made this film. You will find lots of powerful characters. w Peggy Olson is Drapers' secretary, who has grown to be the coolest copywriter. Joan Holloway knows all the weak sides of every person and even Betty Draper – a desperate housewife, whose character has become more and more stronger with every season.

You're born alone and you die alone and this world just drops a bunch of rules on top of you to make you forget those facts. But I never forget. I'm living like there's no tomorrow, because there isn't one.


3 Suits

The fact that there is something to learn from lawyers is a natural thing. The longer I watch Suits the more I admire Jessica Pearson, the head of the law firm, where the genius and a born lawyer, Harvey Specter works, although majority of the spectators are fond of the latter one.

That's the difference between you and me; you wanna lose small, I wanna win big.


4 Peaky blinders

Stylish, atmospheric and cool British series about the gang “Peaky Blinders”, whose prototype is the real gang with the same name that was active in England but in a later time period than is shown in the series.

You shouldn't be confused of criminal character of such creation. There is more light in Thomas Shelby (the head of blinders) than in Frank Underwood, I mean it! Even if he is the head of the criminal gang, there is something to learn from him.

Lies travel faster than the truth.


5 Breaking Bad

The story about a chemistry teacher, Walter White who transformed into a methamphetamine baron makes people watch nonstop all the seasons. White's success formula is pretty easy – he created what is called “Purple cow” by marketing specialists. But in his case, it is a blue methamphetamine.

Everyone sounds like Meryl Streep with a gun to their head.


6 Fargo

As for me, it is the best series of 2014. Created by my lovely Cohen brothers, it literally tempts this world. I advise you to watch it in summer heat because snowdrifts and frost that lie in the base of film decorations bring more satisfaction exactly in scorching fever. There are several protagonists of Fargo, but I want to point out Billy Bob Thornton who played the role of charismatic killer who was constantly pronouncing congenial quotes.

— — -..Or you could go get in your car and drive away. …
— — Now, why would I do that? …
— — Because some roads you shouldn't go down. Because maps used to say, "There be dragons here." Now they don't. But that doesn't mean the dragons aren't there.”


7 The Knick

One more TV series filmed by the cool director, Steven Soderbergh (who is likely known by his Ocean friends). The film revolves around the hospital of the first decade of the 20th century. You can imagine what conditions were there, can't you?

Observing the way surgeons try to save lives in terms of absolutely inappropriate conditions, having to make do with what they have, and constantly trying new methods, you want nothing but take a deep breath and rejoice that we were born in other times.

It has to do with business as its characters have to demonstrate entrepreneurial qualities, like inventiveness, insistence, power and ability to show results in the face of crisis.


8 Black Mirror

It hardly can be called a series because there were only three episodes per season, and besides they are not related to each other. So if you don't like one, you can switch to another. I'm sure that at least one of the 7 episodes will appeal to you.


9 Sherlock

British series are marvelous, and Sherlock is no exception. In all, misanthropic and melancholic characters are quite up-to-date nowadays. That's why this series was in for success.

After watching “Sherlock”, you hardly take possession of a synthetic method but you are likely to notice more details. And it will be really useful to think over some mysteries along with Holmes and Watson.

The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.


10 Game of the Thrones

I left this series for the last for a tidbit, not surprisingly. Besides a merciless destruction of Starks and immense dragons, there is a series of characters you can learn from.

Only by admitting what we are can we get what we want
