2) Mr. Nobody
The life story of Nemo Nobody, a 118 year-old man who is the last mortal on Earth after the human race has achieved quasi-immortality.

The second season begins with Mary and Francis on the throne of a nation burning. France is rocked by the aftereffects of the plague, a disease that crept inside the castle walls, taking thousands upon thousands of lives across the land, and ravaging the stability of a nation. From the ashes, powerful lords will rise, carrying out personal, religious and political vendettas, taking lives, and tearing at Mary and Francis' commitment to their people;...
Dark forces are moving outside the court and when a powerful Danish warlord Bloodhair attacks, Uhtred must lead Wessex's forces into battle. He captures Bloodhair's mysterious lover, the savage sorceress Skade, who throws a curse, and his world becomes blighted by tragedy.
A story of redemption, vengeance, and self-discovery set against the birth of England, this drama follows young warrior and outsider Uhtred on a fierce mission to reclaim his birthright. The series combines real historical figures and events with fiction, retelling the history of King Alfred the Great and his desire to unite the many separate kingdoms into what would become England.
The show begins its third season with Mary and Francis realizing that they are more powerful together than apart, believing there is hope for them to move forward, and leaving behind the anger and hurt. It also introduces us to another Court, that of Elizabeth, "Virgin" Queen of England. Still early in her reign, Elizabeth faces opposition on all sides, particularly from men who doubt a woman's ability to rule.
Ever since Mary Stuart, Queen of Scotland, was a little girl, the English have wanted her country and her crown. As a teenager, Mary is sent to France to wed its next king to save herself and her people. Waiting at the French Court is the gorgeous Prince Francis, his illegitimate half-brother Sebastian, a king on the brink of madness, a scheming queen, and the seer Nostradamus with a devastating prophecy.
The fourth and final season finds Mary rising to the challenge, taking back her country and establishing her rule in Scotland, the land of her birth but a wild nation foreign to her, and now, once again, her home. There will be impossibly high stakes, unexpected betrayals, sexual exploits, a royal wedding, a royal birth and a rising body count as three queens in three nations fight for their people, their loves, and their lives.
