The simplest way to describe the term "woke" is as an intolerant and moralizing philosophy. Like its relative "canceled," the term denotes "political correctness" gone wrong. Although the term "woke" has anti-racist roots, it has been misused so much that it no longer bears any trace of its original meaning. To be clear, we strongly oppose racism, but the term "woke" is no longer connected to it.

Woke has finally come to stand for all the harmful attempts to redefine society to fit the expectations of a tiny minority due to its frequent misuse. Most people who support woke culture as a sign of virtue are unaware of the damage they cause to society. The woke culture poured over into the movies and TV shows, making a lot of controversial material. However, there are still TV shows free of it.

10. "Pieces of Her"

Family secrets will change their lives forever

The plot of "Pieces of Her" centers on Andy, a 30-year-old woman involved in a fatal shooting spree at a neighborhood diner. She then sees Laura, her mother, quickly and aggressively neutralize the threat. Andy's perspective on their family dynamic changes as she starts to piece together her mother's behavior on that particular day.

Thus, she is soon compelled to flee when characters from her mother's past emerge. That's why she searches for the information her mother long ago buried while traveling. Toni Collette's outstanding performance propels the entire production. Despite losing momentum in the second half, "Pieces of Her" is still worth watching.

9. "The Thing About Pam"

True story-based show about a monstrous killer

The police are confident that their investigation into the death of Betsy Faria in a small Missouri hamlet will lead to the arrest and conviction of her husband. Yet there are still unsolved concerns. The case not only results in a false conviction but also triggers a series of events revealing a sinister plot involving Betsy's close friend Pam Hupp.

While she was the last person to see Betsy alive, Pam, who was never considered a suspect, continually shifts her tale to avoid answering questions. That leads detectives down a terrifying sequence of unexpected turns. Rene Zelwegger's outstanding performance serves as the show's centerpiece.

8. "The Sinner"

A good police anthology series led by Bill Pullman

Derek Simonds created the police procedural anthology television program "The Sinner" for USA Network. It is titled after the 1999 book by Petra Hammesfahr that inspired the first season. Actor Bill Pullman plays a police detective investigating crimes committed by improbable suspects and tries to understand their motives.

Only Pullman makes a regular appearance; the rest of the cast essentially changes to accommodate the plot of each season. "The Sinner," a planned eight-part miniseries, debuted to positive reviews and strong viewership. Due to the program's popularity, USA Network adapted it into an anthology series.

7. "From"

As if backwater America wasn't scary enough

A nightmare village in middle America that traps everyone who enters is revealed in the TV show "From." The unwilling occupants must battle the dangers of the surrounding forest, especially the horrific animals emerging at dusk. At the same time, they are trying to maintain a feeling of normalcy and looking for a way out.

The series continued due to its excellent feedback. Leading actors and the incredibly horrifying atmosphere of rural horror deserve the most credit for that. It seems like we'll take pleasure in our terror for a time.

6. "Raven"

A troubled detective comes back to his hometown

A 40-year-old police officer named Adam Kruk visits his hometown to track down the pedophile who once molested his friend Slawek. Adam is hooked on both opiates and psychoactive narcotics. However, he is unexpectedly asked to look into a new case when he arrives. It is about the kidnapping of a wealthy man's grandson, which he decides to accept and help him overcome his past errors.

He views this situation as a second chance to defend a child because he was powerless to save Slawek. To solve the kidnapping, Adam must master the deepest recesses of his mind. As the investigation develops, he finds information showing an unforeseen connection between these two incidents.

5. "Tulsa King"

Stallone in his first leading role in a TV show

The main character of "Tulsa King" is a former New York mafia boss named Dwight "The General" Manfredi (Sylvester Stallone). Manfredi is serving a 25-year sentence, abiding by the no-rating-on-your-friends rule, and expects a sizable reward upon release. Instead, he is exiled to the Midwest's Badlands from the East Coast's flashing lights.

The mafia veteran is sent to Tulsa, Oklahoma, by the new blood running the criminal enterprise under the premise of opening an operation there. Manfredi chooses to settle in Tulsa rather than suffer in forced retirement, which is really just pushing the old man under the rug.

4. "Blue Bloods"

Family drama and police show at once

A multi-generational family of New York police officers is the subject of the drama "Blue Bloods." Frank Reagan is the head of the Reagan family and the New York Police Department. Even while dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically brazen father, Henry, throughout his tenure as Chief, manages his department with the same diplomacy that he manages his family.

The family's "golden boy" and youngest Reagan, Jamie, is a Harvard Law graduate. Jamie made the difficult decision to forgo a lucrative legal career and become a police officer to uphold the family tradition. Eddie, his partner who keeps him in check, has proven to be a worthy friend and ally for him.

3. "Reacher"

This is how the Jack Reacher show is supposed to look

Former US Army military policeman Jack Reacher visits the made-up small town of Margrave, Georgia, and is detained on suspicion of murder. After being set free, he joins forces with Oscar Finlay and Roscoe Conklin to go into a massive conspiracy involving dishonest politicians, merchants, and police officials.

Although we like Tom Cruise's "Reacher" films, Alan Ritchson's portrayal of this tough guy is more accurate than the original. On February 4, 2022, the first season, based on Lee Child's breakthrough book "Killing Floor," was made available. "Bad Luck and Trouble" is the basis for the second one.

2. "Yellowstone"

The "Dallas" for the modern age

The "Dallas" of the twenty-first century is "Yellowstone." The alternative to South Fork is the Yellowstone Ranch. In place of JR Ewing, we have John Dutton. Dutton, like JR, will stop at nothing to protect his assets. Yet, because there are so many characters, it can be challenging to follow the plot.

Although the episodes are set in the open Western United States, they are classic melodramas with plenty of carnage, twisted romance, retribution, and avarice. The audience must put aside some preconceptions to believe all of this. One is that Dodge City in 1870 and Montana in 2020 are remarkably similar.

1. "Tokyo Vice"

A good journalist makes a lot of enemies

In Tokyo in 1999, a journalist named Jake Aldenstein was employed by a publication. When he was hired as a trainee reporter for Yomiuri Shimbun, he faced off against one of the city's most formidable criminal bosses. The series is about how Sekiguchi, an experienced detective, took him under his wing while he was a cadet.

The series describes Adelstein's subsequent work for the paper, documenting 80-hour work weeks, relationship challenges, and confrontations between crime reporters and the police. The series includes details of specific events like the hunt for Lucie Blackman's murderer and threats against him after he released an exposé on Tadamasa Goto. Additionally, he discovered that Saitama Prefecture was falsifying data on dioxin pollution.

The majority of new TV shows have some principal woke elements, regardless of whether it is appropriate or not. As a reaction, some TV shows are made deliberately without any of the forced diversity, minority inclusion, or any form of modern "progressive" narrative. Be aware those TV shows are not made against anyone. Instead, they are for the people who aren't fans of the woke elements in their media.

Yellowstone is breathtakingly woke, are you kidding me. Yellowstone is basically a redneck Game of Thrones. Gotta be the most emasculating, feminist show I've seen in years. Please take of non-woke list. TY.

While Tulsa king is far from most of the woke tv shows out there, it does have a huge woke moment where the white guy with dreadlocks is accused of “cultural appropriation” and an episode later has removed them and is than aknowledged as him doing “the right thing”
