Tuesday Top Ten – My Favorite TV Shows

10. Gossip Girl

I don’t care how insanely cheesy or ridiculous or completely unrealistic this show is. I love every single moment of it. A bunch of bratty rich kids and their drama going down in the glitz and glam of the Upper East Side of New York…I was sold so fast. And I swear it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Leighton Meester is absolutely adorable.

9. Supernatural

Two guys traveling around the country, information pills chasing down demons and all sorts of fun stuff? Sign me up. And while it did take me a bit to get into the show, sickness it didn’t take me long to get hooked on it. Especially once angels entered the scene. I loved a good angels and demons story, and Misha Collins is fabulous. I do think they’ve overstayed their welcome but I don’t totally complain when I see these three beautiful faces on my television screen ;)

8. Shadowhunters 

Okay, this is totally cheating because its not even a show yet. They’re still filming and it has a very tentative release date for 2016. But you guys know this is one of my favorite book series PERIOD so I’m really excited that it got a second chance in TV form. I really have high hopes for it, I love the cast so far and and I’m super looking forward to its release next year. I am hoping so so much that it’ll quickly become my favorite.

7. Firefly 

I LOVE THIS SHOW. Is anyone else as depressed as me that it only got one season and a movie? Wait, I know the answer to the question…if you aren’t depressed, you’re absolutely insane. This show is so good, a great mix of science fiction and romance and western and its just perfect. I love everything about this show. Sigh. I would do anything to bring this back.

6. Agent Carter

I was so excited to hear that this was going to be a TV show. Marvel isn’t totally the best when it comes to keeping up with the ladies. So to hear that there was going to be a show focusing on a badass lady, back when ladies weren’t supposed to be badass…I was so excited. And I loved every single moment of this show. I literally squealed with excitement when I heard there was going to be a season two. Everyone just rocks in this show and I can’t wait to see more, especially of Hayley Atwell!

5. The Flash

Its funny because I don’t watch Arrow, and The Flash is the spinoff of that show. But for some reason, there was something incredibly fun and exciting about this show. Plus I had heard Robbie Amell was going to be in the show and after the disappointment of The Tomorrow People being canceled after one season, I needed more of him lol. I’m glad that I decided to watch it though because its absolutely fabulous and I’m counting down the days until season 2.

4. Sherlock

I mean…Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, updated versions of the old Arthur Conan Doyle stories? WIN. Just…win. Everything about this show is just fabulous. It makes me laugh, it makes me cry, its just so good. Its written well, and they do such a great job with updating Sherlock Holmes while also keeping a good honor in the old stories. I love it. I don’t love that we only get a few episodes every three years or so…

3. Arrested Development 

I have to give credit where credit is due. My ex boyfriend made me watch this show. I remember at the time I was so head over heels that I was pretty much willing to do anything for him so I was like, whatever, fine, we can watch it. Now I’m like, well we broke up but thank you for introducing me to one of the FUNNIEST shows I’ve ever watched. This show is amazing and I can watch it over and over again, and it still is funny. In fact, I really would like to watch it again…

2. Game of Thrones

I tried to read the books. I did. I read the first two and don’t get me wrong, I definitely liked them. But they aren’t my style. They’re heavy and just not my type of thing. But I fell in love with the TV show right away. Its hard not to love. Its dramatic and bloody and addicting. And you kind of want to keep watching because you never know who is going to die next and that’s pretty exciting.

1. Doctor Who

Of course. Its the only TV show that I have a tattoo from. Well, Shadowhunters but I don’t think that counts haha. I fell in love with this show and I’ve gobbled down each and every episode I could get my hands on. I love that each Doctor and each companion brings something different and unique to the show. I love that because of that, the show gets to continue. Its the longest running science fiction show. Its science-y and dramatic and emotional and romantic and hilarious and I love every minute of it, even the minutes that aren’t as good as the others ;)
