Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created and hosted at The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they have a list for people to post about on their blogs and such. You can read more about that here. They’re usually book-related because “bookish”, NOT THIS WEEK THOUGH.
This week is TV related.
In honor of Fall Tv, do a tv-themed topic! Top ten favorite tv shows of all time, ten new shows coming out this Fall that are on my radar, tv shows I wish never got cancelled, tv shows I would recommend to book characters, books I wish would be tv shows, ten favorite shows from the late 90’s or early 2000’s, ten tv shows for every fantasy lover, etc.
This is totally my kind of TTT list. Despite the fact that there are SEVERAL shows I haven’t watched, I had all kinds of lists to pick from. So, I’m going to share a couple of them!
Note: I’ll add picture of shows later today.
My first list is:
Top Ten Teen Shows To Watch:
I love teen shows, I really do. I think it’s because I still think of myself as a teen, even though I am anything, but. I constantly rewatch Degrassi and Boy Meets World trying to soak up the “magic” (Envy).
Freaks and Geeks
My So-Called Life
I have heard Freaks and Geeks and My So-Called Life are basically cult classics that were tragically cancelled after only one season. I like that it’s a short show, though from unfortunate circumstances.
Ah, yes, Kevin Williamson. I discovered who he was when watching The Vampire Diaries. I loved the first couple seasons of The Vampire Diaries, especially the writing. I need to watch more of Kevin’s work so here we are.
Plus Dawson’s Creek is another one of those classics.
So, I’m awful with spoilers and discovered who the, er, secret person was. Oops. I still am really interested in this whole premise though.
The fact that
Veronica Mars Kristen Bell does the narrating doesn’t hurt things.
i am a little into “spin-offs” of shows, especially when they’re (Degrassi:) the next generation ones. Shenae Grimes (Degrassi alumni, just saying) is one of the main characters for an unknown (to me) period of time which means I must watch it.
I need to figure out what happened to Darcy.
One Tree Hill
Okay, now I’m cheating a little. I did watch the first two seasons and roughly half of the third.
Much like Gossip Girl, I accidentally did that thing where I put myself in situations (on webpages) where spoils abound! It’s no one’s fault but my own.
For the record, I’m Team Brucas. Lucases are the worst with love triangles.
This was one of U.K.’s finest teen dramas. It’s written by teens which means the dialogue and such is supposed to be really, you know, realistic.
I bought the first season of this when it was on sale for $4.99 on Itunes!
Ahem, again, I love that it’s a short show, though, as far as I know, it wasn’t cancelled, it just finished.
I’ve seen some of this show. I used to always mock it as a Degrassi rip-off “Oh, this is this show’s Ashley/Paige/etc.) and I’d laugh and laugh.
And now I want to watch because I believe (after only watching one) foreign teen shows are better than U.S. ones.
MTV’s newest teen show is a must watch for me. I like that it’s like Pretty Little Liars (which was recently cancelled). I hear this show is actually pretty good though and much better than PLL’s newer seasons.
Now for my next list!
Top Ten Shows I Need To Finish:
I remember I left off on one really good episode of this show, then my Netflix account ended. This was around a year and a half ago. I haven’t gone back to it yet because Why isn’t MY life like that?
It makes me want to be a single parent to a teen girl I’m only a 16 year old age difference from.
Well THAT’S not going to happen, clearly.
One Tree Hill
Did I mention I totally ruined this show for me?
I know what happens to every character, who they end up with, who’s in what season, just, everything.
Did I mention I saw the finale before ever watching a single episode?
Yes. I was home for the summer a couple years ago, it was on TV, it seemed like a monumental event, so I watched it.
I had no idea who the characters were, but it all comes back now that I’ve watched a few seasons of it.
How To Get Away With Murder
I was really into this show up until I started looking it up on IMDB and saw how quite a few things didn’t make sense. I still think it’s pretty good, plus Paris is in it.
Here is my live-tweet thread up to season 2 and a half, I think? The winter finale.
I’ve had such a love/hate relationship with this show, this is all I’ll say.
My thread for season 1-4:
My thread for season 5+:
My thread for season 7:
My live-tweeting thread
The episode, Demons ruined this show for me. I can’t get past the episode. Oh my goshhhh.
I also read a spoiler or two about the finale.
Darn it! This always happens!
I don’t know what got me watching this show again. It was late at night, I believe I read someone talking about it
online somewhere. I decided to watch it and fell a little in love. I’m around five episodes in.
I was at home and this song came on that a character sings in the show and it made me really sad.
This is the newest recent show I started randomly on Netflix one night. Except it wasn’t so randomly because people on a Pop forum were talking about how sad and realistic it was and I’m like “Sad and realistic, that’s me.”
So far so good.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
I’m back to watching this which I started a little over a year ago. I knocked episodes out left and right.
Then episode 7 of season 2 happened and I couldn’t anymore.
I pushed through it though! Now I’m still on the second season, sigh.
I love it. I found spoilers for this show too. Rather, TWITTER informed me of a same spoiler multiple times. This person didn’t say it to me, but like, it’s just ‘there’. Without a warning!
My twitter thread.
It’s not over, stop lying!
I am in denial, guys. I’ve seen the first two seasons, roughly 16 episodes of the third season and the movie. I just can’t manage to push through the whole third season because it’s so CRUELLY ENDED.
I despise it even more after hearing the plan Rob Thomas had for the fourth season and now my head is full of “What ifs?” It’s tragic.
I started rewatching this during BEA Adventures, but haven’t finished yet. I’ll finish the series off as soon as I, you know, start watching it again.
