A good plot twist is a special kind of thrill, no? Many TV shows like Games Of Thrones, Sherlock immediately come to mind when I think of shows with a good twist. I mean, sudden character deaths or revelations, the big twists that change the entire narrative are just so exciting, no? But it should also be noted that plot twists are tricky and if they don’t stick well, they can completely ruin the film. It’s more like a make it or break it situation, honestly.
