No one can deny the fact that a good television show is more than just a good means for entertainment. A good TV show takes you on a journey in a new world where you are surrounded by your favorite characters. There comes a point that you become so engrossed that you start living with the characters.
In this era the concept of TV shows is changing; cable TV services such as Optimum TV are more accessible and the advent of streaming services has changed the entertainment dynamics.

In this series called Walker, Padalecki will be creating a whole new vision for the show and how it unfolds.

The show is expected to air sometime in 2021 with notable actors joining in, such as Lauren Lindsey Donzis, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Johnathan McClain.
Battlestar Galactica was one of the most advanced and iconic shows of its time. The show displayed previously unimaginable space travels and interstellar combat in all their glories. A TV show of the same name may be debuting in the coming year with a storyline that may pique fans’ interests.
