Warning! This article will be followed by massive amounts of YouTube re-runs of your favourite scenes and couples. Guaranteed! I have been doing that myself during past couple of sleepless nights!
I have decided to share with you my favourite TV shows. TV is a part of our everyday routine and TV shows, if they are good, become our obsessions. We talk about them with our work colleagues, friends, family members, even strangers from public or on the internet. I have made lots of friends online since starting this blog and love the fact that I can discuss my favourite shows, characters and plot lines with them. I have been doing it for ages with books, but recently I have become literally obsessed with the one TV show and that brought be the idea of writing this article. I do apologise in front, if you don't agree with my choices or your favourite TV show didn't make the spot. Please do let me know in comments what is your favourite show and why! I would love to hear your opinions.
But let's stop the rambling and let's get down to the business.
10. GOSSIP GIRL
Gossip Girl appear on our screens in September 2007 and instantly became one of the most favourite shows on TV. And why not? CW got the recipe just right. Written and based on a successful novel of the same name, we have all been thrown into the lives of the rich and poor of Upper East Side in New York. With constant stream of drama, relationships, new love interests and gorgeous amazing fashion, we have all been hooked. I must say though, there was no need to follow the group of these spoilt rich brats for six whole seasons. After a while the story got boring, it seemed to me that the writers of the show run out of ideas to make it sizzly and interesting. Instead it felt like it dragged on. And of course, my favourite couple actually never got together!
Yes, my lovely readers, I have been routing for Nate & Little J!!! I have been a fan of this couple all the way from the start. I had my hopes up all the way through first and second series, but then she turned out to be a bit of a crazy cow and he got his ever lasting fix with Serena. Oh well at least Chuck and Blair survived all the scandals and troubles and became the ultimate couple of GG.
But the ultimate pro of this show is THE FASHION. Serena and Blair were the two girls I wanted to be friends with so I can get lost in their wardrobes (and steal every single couture gown possible - even Blair's Ellie Saab blue wedding dress !). This was the one thing why this show left a missing place in the industry! Currently, there isn't a show on our TV screens which would provide such a great fashion and style! Shame! The costume department of this is greatly missed!
9. THE BIG BANG THEORY
It all started in an apartment building when two geeks met their new neighbour. A pretty blond name Penny. That was six years ago! And since then we have been following their hilarious conversations, the struggle with relationships and their own personalities. Sheldon Cooper took over our lives with his hilarious view of life and we are still glued to the TV screens every week to find out more.
This show brought a revolution to the world - to be a geek is actually ok and sexy. And I love it!
I can re-watch every single episode over and over again and every single time I find something new and funny to laugh on.
8. NEW GIRL
Who's that girl? It's Jess.
A girl gets cheated on. She gets thrown out of her apartment. A girl finds new home in a flat with three guys. You know you are in for a funny adventure! And that's what New Girl is about. Jess is my heroine. She is smart, funny, beautiful and quirky. I love her. She is awkward and very clumsy and has a talent to find herself in the most ridiculous situations possible. She is secretly ( well not so secretly now) in love with Nick. They have live together with their housemates and all is crazy in Jessville!
I love the show, it never fails to make me smile!
ABC's spin-off show which didn't do that well on US market. It follow Caleb - Hannah's boyfriend from Pretty Little Liars - who can see a death ghost because he lived in Ravenswood in one of his past lives. Ravenswood is cursed. Long time ago six families sing a contract to protect their soldiers in war by giving up five lives of teenagers.
In theory, this could be a good series. We have a group of young attractive people who are all bonded by a big secret in a scary town. But we have seen what has happened to CW's Secret Circle. I has been cancelled after one season and the same faith met Ravenswood. After 10 episodes filled with excitement and suspense, the show has been quietly cancelled without proper end! (which I always hate when a show gets cancelled. No ending. Just leave us hanging on! HATE IT!) .
Caleb is returning to his home show Pretty Little Liars in autumn and the rest of the cast is left to look for another job. Actually Caleb aka Tyler Blackburn was the best thing about the show. I love him in PLL as Hannah's boyfriend and I hope this couple will get another go at their relationship.
6. TRUE BLOOD
Two seasons ago, this would be my number one show. But in the fashion of the books, which this show is based on, the series got worse and worse after fourth season. The only good thing remaining - Alexander Skarsgard and my hope we will see him naked more and in the arms of Sookie Stackhouse.
True Blood has become a phenomenon. It has been adored by fans all over the world and the first four seasons took your breath away after the first watch. There are vampires like no others. There was a massive amount of violence and sex that the TV stations in UK had to show the show after 10PM.
But the last two seasons, the show lost the plot and it's gone from bad to worse. This year, the last season of the show is coming and I have high hopes that finally the writers will put it right and bring back the good old gang with their good old problems. But we shall see...
Countdown to the series premiere has started. 22nd June 2014....
5. GAME OF THRONES
There is something about the shows HBO creates! They always seems to get it right! And GAME OF THRONES is no exception.
What can I say about Game of Thrones which hasn't been said before. We all love it. Even the people who say they don't like it, they secretly love it. This show has such amount of back-stabbing, murders, killing, rapes, incests, love affairs, blood-shedding and intrigues like no other. And even when our stomachs cannot take it anymore, we are still watching it. It's brilliant. We all from our supporting camps. Personally I am definitely Daenerys Targaryen fan. I hope she will be the winner at the end. And she is the only half decent person in the running for THE THRONE to be honest .
Let's all hope that the new series will bring more drama and killing into our lives :)
4. PRETTY LITTLE LIARS
I cannot believe that this show has just finished the forth season and it is still incredibly good. I am in awe of the authors and writers for coming up with so many twits and turns and surprises on this show. One minute you are certain you know, who A is and boom, there is a new development which confuses you even more.
I honestly don't know what else they can prepare for us in the fifth season but I am going to be there to watch it. And this is the first ever series, where I love and root for all the couples - Aria & Ezra, Toby & Spencer, Caleb & Hannah and Emily with her new love squeeze. I cannot even pick my favourite Liar!! But it might be Spencer... I love her fashion style !
3. THE VAMPIRE DIARIES
It all started one friday night when I discovered this TV show with the two most hot guys in a while - Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder. Wow, those boys are dreamy! I have been following this show ever since. I love brooding Stefan and I really want that Elena will finally make the right choice and chooses Stefan. Their love is EPIC!
But having said that, I also see why people love her relationship with Damon as he always challenges her. It's a roller-coaster type of relationship which can keep you entertain for couple of seasons. Currently the couple on this show is Damon & Elena with Stefan watching from the sidelines while being supported by his best friend Caroline. But this season is not over yet and TVD has been renewed for another season, so I am sure that we will see more of this love triangle again. Although, I am not sure what story lines the writers can produce as I already feel that the show is loosing its original charm, but I guess I have to sit tight and wait for the results.
When did history became so damn sexy? I will tell you when. It was when the creative heads in CW decided to put their spin on it and created a little show called REIGN.
Reign follows the life and destiny of Mary, The Queen of Scots and her stay at the french court when she was betrothed to Henry, the future King of France. This show burst on our TV screens and got us hooked. There is sex, violence, drama, intrigues, backstabbing, love affairs and all on the backgrounds of beautiful locations and amazing fashion.
Seriously, the fashion - dresses and headpieces in this show has even their own Twitter account. I love, love, love everything about this show - apart from Bash. I am a serious Mary & Francis shipper (although I do know the history <insert a sad face>) ! They are just adoringly cute!
I must have been living under a stone in a dark cave on a desert island, because I have discovered this absolutely fantastic show only couple of weeks ago. Yes, of course I have heard about it, but never really bothered to look it up. You see, here in the UK we really rely on Channel 4 and E4 to bring us CW shows from across the pond. And they haven't bought the rights yet! And that is a shame! BIG BIG SHAME!
Not only they deny to let us watch one of the most entertaining TV shows on current US market, but also they will not let us watch STEPHEN AMELL. Oh yeah, that man is just divine. And every single episode we can see him do his thing - working out shirtless! I can honestly say, I have never seen a more beautiful and more perfect piece of a male specimens. He has definitely found his ways to my dreams a lot recently! :)
Another and the biggest thing I love about this show is the relationship between Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak. Yes, I am an OLICITY fan! I think these two actors have such a great chemistry and sometimes I get very angry that the writers of the who's do not use it more! It would be to their advantage! It's a pleasure to watch these two - their famous looks and touches caused fan bases to form. I hoe they will get more airtime together and end up in a proper relationship at the end. I think Oliver needs to be with somebody like Felicity who can show him how beautiful life is and there doesn't need to be bad memories and killing only.
I am looking forward to see more of this show and hope that Channel 4 or E4 will buy the rights soon!
SEX AND THE CITY (The ultimate break-up TV show!)
GIRLS (A hit show trying to follow similar pattern as Sex and The city but better!)
HART OF DIXIE (Wilson Bethel can make any girl swoon!)
THE MINDY PROJECT (Hilarious sitcom from the doctor's world which will crack you up to stitches!)
