Favorite TV-shows.

Naamloos_thumb[4]Today is the official day *bounces* I want to thank all of you for the awesome comments so far. This will be my last celebration post, but I hope to keep up with the more personal topics. Today I want to share you one of my other hobbies. I watch a LOT of movies and TV shows. I want to show you 7 of my favorite shows. Sharing this information is also inspired by ‘Life of a blogger’



once-upon-a-time
I don’t think this is a surprise by now. I’m absolutely in love with this show. It might not have the best special effects, but the storylines are interesting and I love most of the characters *glares mad at Neal* It’s fun how they include all these different fairy tales and how they combine. If you don't know this show, keywords: mix of fairy tales, swoonworthy males and villains.

new-girlADORABLE. Jess isn’t hard to connect with. There are some situations where I recognized myself in. She is just so quirky, nerdy and sweet! I wish I had a girl like her in real life, I’d totally be best friends with her. I’m not happy that Coach is back (and why is Winston not in the picture?) but Nick & Schmidt are great. Nick sometimes reminds me of my boyfriend (although he doesn’t agree, haha) If you don't know this show, keywords: friendship and hilarious situations.

If there is one show I need to watch if I want to laugh, it’s this one. Max is hilarious. She is sarcastic and blunt, but she has a generous and big heart underneath all of that. There are also other characters on this show you absolutely have to meet! If you don't know this show, keywords: penniless waitresses with a dream.

I’m so happy with this show. I watched The Vampire Diaries, but I’m a bit burned out on it. Klaus and the other Originals were my favorites (and the only reason with Ian Somerhalder I kept watching). Now I can just watch them in their own spin-off. If you don't know this show, keywords: vampires, werewolves and witches.

431311I did a binge-watch with my boyfriend where we saw all 7 seasons in one month. I love this type of humour and it’s great that Bernadette is a Microbiologist like me. If you don't know this show, keywords: nerds, science and friendship.

I’m not sure why I waited so long, but I recently watched season 1 and 2 in three days and I’m hooked. Smart guys are so attractive. I'll be watching the last episode from season 3 tonight. If you don't know this show, keywords: brilliant, friendship, surprising twists and mystery.

game-of-thrones-season-4
GREAT show! I think it’s power is in the fact that you never know if your favorite characters are going to survive.. I watched the show before I read the books (am currently busy in part 2), so let me tell you that some things are very shocking. If you don't know this show, keywords: politics, deaths and dragons.

Some shows to mention: I recently started to watch Veronica Mars (was a bit forced to this) and Supernatural: I like them a lot so far! Awkward is okay. Jenna is sometimes a bit too stupid for my taste. I binge watched Breaking Bad and it’s good. I’m following Sleepy Hollow and Dracula. I need to finish Camelot. I saw some episodes from Hart of Dixie and I like it. Do I need to go on? I think we’ve settled by now that I’m bit of a TV show addict!

What are some of your favorite shows? Do we have some in common?

  1. Wow you're like a tv superstar. How do you watch so many tv shows?! From your list, I love The Originals, Game of Thrones, and Supernatural. I still watch TVD as well. I haven't given up on it! I started Once Upon a Time but gave up after a while when I lost track of what episode I was on. I know some people that are diehard fans of Sherlock, so I'm curious about that too.

  2. YES. OUAT. OMG. CAN'T BELIEVE THERE'S STILL ONE MORE MONTH UNTIL IT PREMIERES AGAIN. And haha, the sfx are terrible but it doesn't matter bc I really enjoy the characters and the actors and omfg, I ship Hook and Emma so hard. Like the ending of that last episode??? I think I let out a little yelp of joy. But of course, it was short lived bc well, you know...

    And New Girl! I actually really enjoy the show and the characters even though I think it's getting worse. I don't want it to end though bc I really love all the characters! I'll just beg and cross my fingers that the writers get more smart and creative when writing.

  4. SO many good shows! First of all, Game of Thrones season 4 cannot come soon enough!!! And I've only watched the pilot of The Originals - I keep up with the Vampire Diaires, but I reeeeally need to watch the Originals. I've just got to find more time! I also need to catch up on my Once Upon a time! I dropped out sometime in the middle of the second season *embarrassed* That show is SUPER awesome, I love any kind of fairy tale remake! :3 And every once in a while I'll catch an episode of 2 Broke Girls! Kat Dennings <3

    1. I think the Originals is much better. I really liked the VD in the beginning, but the quality is meh.

  5. I love TV soooo much~! I too am watching Supernatural. I just started so I am on season 4 now. Netflix is great. I tried a few new shows this season including Almost Human which is good so far I think. You should try it out.

    1. Almost human.. I believe I have it somewhere on my list with series I definitely want to watch :D

  7. HAPPY OFFICIAL BLOGVERSE! I love Big Bang Theory and I've wathed Two Broke Girls a few times and it's pretty hilarious.

    Lovely post! <33

  8. YAY! We watch the same TV shows! I love 2 Broke Girls. I always end up laughing my head off during every episode. Max is so sarcastic and hilarious. I love her.
    *Glares madly at Neal as well* Neal just has to go away and let Hook and Emma get together.
    I only started watching Sherlock at the end of last year and I can't believe I waited so long to watch it! I love getting to see the thought processes Sherlock goes through and he can be pretty hilarious most of the time.
    Yay for Supernatural! Are you enjoying it? What season are you on?

    1. Max is awesome :D I heard some interesting rumors around Neal/Hook/Emma. I'm only in season 1, episode 6 (I can't watch it at night or alone, too scared, haha. So I have to wait for my boyfriend to watch it :p) but it's good!

      Delete
  9. Yes, New Girl is great! I loved it, I have watched a lot of this show already :3 I haven't watched all the other shows though. I did watch TVD at some point, but not anymore. My sister watches both the Originals and TVD now. I still have to watch Sherlock, really!

  10. Happy 2nd Blogoversary, that is amazing that you've reached such a big milestone! LOVE Big Bang Theory, I marathoned all 6 seasons of it too and now I'm up to date. Game of Thrones, The Originals and Supernaturals are also up there with my favourite shows!

  11. How do you keep up with so many TV series? I can only really follow one at a time! And then it's usually three years after everyone else has found it, haha. Right now I'm working through The Big Bang Theory with my boyfriend. I used to hate it, when it caught episodes halfway through, but since I stopped and started from the beginning, I actually really like it. Although Sheldon Cooper really makes the whole thing for me! Jim Parsons is a brilliant actor!

    Before that was Breaking Bad, which is hands down my favourite series ever and I doubt that's going to change! Jesse was such a messed up little puppy, I wanted to stroke him and care for him; and Walt, wow, his transformation was so gradual but chilling, and seeing S1 Walt in season five was such a strong juxtaposition! I just love that show so much. ;~;

    Happy official 2nd blogoversary! :D

    1. Trakt.tv is one of the answers :D I was very behind on most series too. I mean, Veronica Mars, Sherlock, Supernaturals, Game of Thrones, I'm recently starting to catch up haha. Breaking ad was indeed very good!

  12. I used to watch NG, but I've become bored of it. xD I also watch Sleeply Hollow. It's not mind blowing or amazing, but it is definitely enjoyable. :) I'm kind of shipping the two mc's, hehe! Two Broke Girls and TBBT are both pretty fun, too. Love GoT, my fave character has to be Arya! Other shows I watch and luuurve: The Mentalist, Grimm, Mellisa & Joey, Elementary, and Nashville. <3

    1. Arya is awesome! I also really like Tyrion :)

  13. Oh my gosh, The Originals, love love it (huge Klaus fan)! I also watch Big Bang Theory and New Girl. But my favorite CW show is The Tomorrow People, I'm more on the action side, haha. I tried watching 2 Broke Girls before and didn't like it. I don't get the show's humor but glad it works for you. ;)

  14. First of Mel I love your new design! So pretty!!! :)) And congrats on 2nd blogoversary. For the shows I mean I don't have to talk about Sherlock. It's one of the best shows I have ever seen. I need to catch up it Game of Thrones as well as with Once Upon a Time. First season was great. My fave comedy is The Big Bang Theory for sure! Sheldon is such an amazing character and others are too. But that guy is so funny. Great post!! :)

  15. Oooh I love OUAT! The plot is just amazing and those dresses are to die for. I'm so pissed we have to wait so long before it premieres again. Game of Thrones is also one of my favorite shows and currently I've been obsessing over Teen Wolf. Ahh those cliffhangers...

    1. I hear a lot of people talk about Teen wolf, I need to check it out :)

  16. I'm ashamed to say I have not started the Once Upon a Time TV show :( I need to make it a goal of February to start this series! I think my favorite show right now is Parks and Recreation =)

    1. Yeees, you should. It's awesome :D I've never seen Parks and recreation before *writes down*

  17. I love Jess! She's so hilarious and she reminds me of my friend who is a lot like her in real life. Zany, cute and completely adorable. Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Once Upon A Time & The New Girl are my favourites too. But I also love How I Met Your Mother & Downtown Abbey.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm a big fan of GoT and Sherlock (I haven't watched the new stuff yet). I'm also slowly working my way through Once Upon a Time. I'd like to try New Girl and Two Broke Girls as well.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I recently started watching Sherlock and have been really liking it! This latest season was awesome. :) My blogger friends have also gotten me to start watching Doctor Who and Downton Abbey. New Girl sounds adorable, and I love how you described Max in 2 Broke Girls, so I'll have to check those out too!

  20. Ha ha I watch too many TV shows myself and I think it's perfectly fine to do just that.

    When Once Upon a Time first aired, I had every intention of watching it but then it never happened and now, I feel like I should watch the show and I plan to binge-watch it later this year. I like fairytales and I think it's about time I got to know Captain Hook. ;)

    New Girl is great. I love everyone except Coach, he's a little meh for my taste. Wilson has the best jokes ever and I laugh every time he's on the screen. Schmidt lines are the best. Ceecee is great. I love how Nick is and Jess is too lively and I love her.

    I never had someone recommend 2 Broke Girls to me but I've always wanted to watch it. It seems like the better version of The Simple Life.

    The Originals is so good! The Originals is darker and more violent with music just as good as The Vampire Diaries. Still, I'll never tire of The Vampire Diaries because I've been watching it since it first aired and so I'm attached to it. Also, I love Stefan and Katherine so there's that.

    I binge-watched all the seasons of The Big Bang Theory last year and I'm hooked. Sheldon is so awesome, the humor is ridiculously funny and I love the science-y feel of the show.

    As you know I've only watched the pilot episode as of yet and I'll probably catch up slowly because the episodes are too long. I love it, though.

    I've always wanted to read Game of Thrones before watching it and so I don't know much about the show. And I get my historical fix with Reign so I'm okay for now. Ha ha.

    I do plan on watching all of Veronica Mars this month. Let's see how that goes!

    1. We have so many shows in common! :) I can't wait to see what you think about OUAT (and gorgeous Hook, haha) Coach isn't my favorite either.. I've never heard of The simple life, but I think 2 broke girls is hilarious. Sheldon is the best, haha.

  21. So I've only watched season 1 of Big Bang, and I love it so much! I envy you for being able to binge watch all those seven seasons, because I just love the guys so much. It's the perfect blend of comedy and nerdom, and I just love it. Being a total nerd myself, my fandom mode has been activated to overdrive.

    I'm a little sad because the episodes I got my hands on for Veronica had some episodes broken, and I don't know how I can get the rest. I also want to watch Supernatural, but I don't know how I'll ever have the time! I just have so many shows I want to binge on.

    And Once Upon a Time! I love how they mix all those fairytales together, and the characters are so flawed and complex. I love Regina as a villain. And like oh my gawd, the guys. THE GUYS. *melts*

    1. Regina is an awesome villain. I really like how complex her character is :)

  22. I watch Game of Thrones and New Girl! I didn't really like the first season of New Girl, but the second season was awesome and now I love it! My boyfriend is totally confused by the show, though, haha. But we watch Game of Thrones together! We've both read all the books, so it's really something that we bond with together.

    1. I like having things together. My boyfriend & me watch a lot of shows together and it's always fun to talk about it with someone :D

  23. I guess I really need to watch Once Upon a Time then! The only other I watch is The Big Bang Theory.

  24. I love OUAT! Captain Swan FOREVER. I didn't love this season, which is a shame because the actor for Pan was actually really fantastic as a big bad, especially for someone so young! But I got really, really, REALLY tired of that story line. And besides, I missed Ruby! And I feel very much the same way about New Girl - I love the show, but man what have they DONE to Winston?!? He went from being the one sane one to being...really...weird. Like not even charmingly kooky the way Nick and Jess are...straight up creep factor weird. I want my Winston back! And I super <3 Sherlock! Although...I don't know how I feel about everything that happened...I won't say anything because spoilers, but you'll know what I mean!

    1. YES!! I wasn't a huge fan of the Neverland setting either, but there were some great situations and I loved the ending. I now know what you mean about Sherlock and damn, wasn't expecting that :o

      Delete
  25. Yes at New Girl! It's so wonderful! I love Nick (before this current season). Whenever he writes, he's like me. Spirit animal. ;D Ahem, I think you mean Winston. ;D He is the best! I wish the show will give him a good storyline because he is frickin' hilarious. He's the semi-sane one out of the four of them.

    You don't have these three shows on your list — Elementary, Psych, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Sherlock + Joan Watson's relationship is everything to me! The cases are weak, but the character growth, yes pleasseeee. Psych makes me incredibly happy. Gus and Shawn's friendship is the best. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is sooo fun. I love that they don't rely on stereotypical jokes on race and whatnot. Every character is super wonderful. You should watch it!

    1. HAHA, shoot, I always make the mistake with Winston/Wilson :p *edit* I've seen a couple of episodes from Elementary, so I definitely want to see it from the beginning. The other 2 are new to me, thanks, I'll look them up.

      Delete
  26. SO I pretty much LOVE all the same shows! My fiance and I just binged watched all of Sherlock.... holy moly I just love that show. I am in the same boat, I have no idea why I waited so long to start it but I love it. It's nice though to be able to just watch them all in a row!

    New Girl is great too. I am not sure though I am still liking the Jess and Nick relationship.

    1. Watching them all in one time is definitely a positive thing, but at the same time I always wonder why I am so behind on everyone :p

  27. My husband watches The Originals. Sherlock is a great choice. I don't watch as much tv as I used to since my time has become busier, but I'll still read on the couch while my husband watches and catch things here and there. :)

  28. Ok so I used to watch A LOT of TV. Like 22+ shows or something crazy like that. I could barely keep up and have a life. But then I started reading A LOT and definitely couldn't keep up so that number has come down. I still try to watch a good number of shows but I am so behind on all of them still. Thank goodness for DVR. I love New Girl but am behind. I love GoT but am behind (thankfully I read the books). I love the Originals but am behind. Haha do you see the trend? I don't watch the others you've mentioned but some of my other favorites are Revenge, Arrow, Dallas, TVD, Nashville...

    And I think I said this but just in case HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!

    ReplyDelete
  29. YESSSS keep up with the more personal topics!

    Heheh. I can see you really liking Once Upon a Time. I see updates for it when I'm making the bookish rounds posts and consider posting info about it... but too much time :P. Is this the show with Sayyid from Lost? Who's your favorite character? And it's a mix of all fairy tales? I don't know why, but I always thought it was just about Alice & the wonderland.

    Ahhhhhh New Girl. I've heard such good things about this show. Maybe you do have many girls like her in real life :P, all of us bloggers like her. Hahaha, yeah, I can imagine your bf distancing himself from comparisons to the character in the show. It's like my mom telling one of my brothers that he's like Sheldon - she never would because he would immediately deny it. Definitely.

    Ahh. I still watch both the Originals and the Vampire Diaries. I feel like I ought to drop one. I just realized that I watch 4 CW shows. Reign, TVD, Originals, and the 100. I should drop one and get in on something else or use that hour for some other activity :O. It's easy to get burned out with TVD. I think they're going through another doppelganger phase. It's frustrating. Elijah is my favorite from the Originals - how about for you?

    BIG BANG THEORY!!! AAAAAAAArghhhhh. This is the one show I really regret not keeping up with. I loved it. I watched all three seasons when I was in Lebanon about four years ago. And then I didn't keep up with the other seasons because of college and now it feels like I need to binge watch them before I watch them regularly on t.v. Bernadette is awesome - I still don't get how she does that voice! (She didn't sound so high pitched in the beginning :O).

    Sherlock. Another to watch. *sigh* Beneditch Cumberbatch.

    "GREAT show! I think it’s power is in the fact that you never know if your favorite characters are going to survive.." -- Hahahahah I think the thing is that NONE of my favorite characters survive. All my favorite characters are the ones who have good morals and naturally Martin is like, screw that! Let's make it so that the good people never win! I haven't read the books yet either - though I admire your persistence in reading them & watching the show...

    Ah, I remember you replied to my comment about being 3 episodes in on Veronica Mars - are you further along now? I still haven't started :OOO. AAARGH SO i need to drop one show and get on the rest of these....

    1. I will, I enjoy personal things, although I haven't done it in a while.. Might try to find a fun topic to talk about!

      No, I had to google that guy, but he is in the spin-off you are talking about. OUAT in Wonderland! I'm talking about the original series, which is a blend of all kinds of fairy tales. My favorite character.. Hmm. If I go for hot: Captain Hook, if I go for cool: Rumplestiltskin :)

      Hahaha, but sometimes he is just so spot on Nick-like (and he even knows it :p)

      TVD is getting a bit annoying, so I'm mostly watching The originals. I like Rebekah and how they portray her, but I think I like Elijah the best too!

      Haha, I always identify with Bernadette because we're doing the same thing, but yeah, the voice! o.O
