Another week, another Top Ten Tuesday, a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. The topic was TV related and I decided to go for my favorite TV shows. I have many more that the ones listed, but those that made it here are the ones I tend to rewatch from time to time. I’m so sure I’m forgetting some, but I can’t figure out which ones!
My sisters and I were so faithful to this show when it came out, we never missed an episode. This year I decided to rewatch every single season and I was a little scared because I wasn’t sure if I was going to love it. I TOTALLY DID. It was exactly what I remembered. Then came the news of the new episodes on Netflix and I can’t tell you how excited I am. I looked up to Rory for her love of books and academic work and Lorelai for how witty and funny she was, but I also like that they make terrible decisions and aren’t perfect.
2. BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
This show is extremely funny, witty and also very tragic (it got so dark!). My favorite thing about it is how well-rounded and badass all the female characters are. I loved them so much and I can relate to all of them somehow. Although the last seasons were disappointing, it still holds a place in my heart because the rest of the show was incredible.
3. STEVEN UNIVERSE
I cannot ignore cartoons here. Steven Universe is the cutest show on TV. It’s got a lovely animation, catchy songs, incredible characters, diversity, it’s perfect for children and adults alike, and I can go on and on about it. It’s adorable and also touches on very serious topics in the best ways possible.
4. ADVENTURE TIME
My favorite thing about this show is the wacky humor and the relationships. Jake and Finn as brothers, Marcie and PB’s complicated relationship, etc. It’s a very complex show and I’m sure I always miss a lot of the references and topics it deals with, so rewatching is a must!
5. DOCTOR WHO
Here I’m referring to seasons 1 to 4. I loved the main characters as well as the side characters, the plot lines, themes, etc. Seasons 5 and 6 lost the magic, but they have some good episodes too (the van Gogh episode is one of my favorites). I haven’t watched all of Peter Capaldi episodes, so maybe it got better.
6. PARKS AND RECREATION
This show is hilarious and really cute. Leslie is very unique character in my eyes because of her optimism, hard work and good nature. She really just wants the best for everyone, how can you not love her? The rest of the characters are also amazing and really funny. I enjoy how different they all are and their interactions.
7. PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
What can I say? This is the perfect adaptation to Jane Austen’s novel. Literally, it’s almost word for word! If you are a fan of the novel, you’ll love it. The performances are delightful.
Some of these shows I love but not quite as the other ones listed. Others, I used to like but never finished/rewatched them so I’m not sure what I feel about them now.
- Orphan Black
- Brooklyn Nine-Nine
- Sailor Moon
- My Mad Fat Diary
