If you are active on our MoviesDrop Facebook group then you should probably know that I’m a big fan of Person of Interest (POI). I’m badly waiting for their next season. So I decided to try some other TV series (TV Shows) during that ‘wait’ and I came across plenty of interesting ones. I love any movie or show which has computer technology or hacking screenplays.
Even if it has a single scene, I download the entire movie and watch it. I’m not a coder or programmer myself, but I’m a passionate learner when it comes to technology. In this article, I shared some of the best TV Series based on Hacking and Technology. Apart from entertaining you, they also teach you something about the technology scenario and hacking methods.
