I was thinking on naming this post "My Favorite Things" then I got this weird vision of Oprah dancing around in curtains. I do like The Sound of Music, but Oprah- well lets just say she ain't my cup o' tea. I can't believe I commited to a "bloggin 5k" what was I thinking? Zoinks! I spent most of this day thinking of things I could write about and mostly fitness, and cleaning things came to mind. However, I am no expert on either of those subjects. Maybe on how to avoid working out 'til the last possible moment, or how to let your house waste away while you pretend everything's alright. So, I decided, after talking to my friend Eliza, that I want to write about my top 5 t.v. shows. I know how lame right?, but seriously I think I could introduce some of you to some great ones. If you have seen all of these before then press on and hope for a better blog tomorrow (yeah, right!).
NOT IN ANY SPECIFIC ORDER
#1. Chuck- yeah this show isn't on the air anymore but its awesome. It seriously makes me laugh so hard. I love all the characters (which is hard to find) and I love the plot lines. It's also a good one to watch before bed. You can get away with watching 1 or 2 and feeling satisfied enough to pick it up the next day. Zachary Levi is oh so adorable, especially that smile and nerdiness. Yvonne Strahovski is so beautiful and sexy (in a non slutty way) and kicks butt that you want to be her. Joshua Gomez is the best friend you probably already have and its hard not to love his enthusiasm and loyalty. Lastly, Adam Baldwin growls and its hilarious. This show has it all; comedy, romance, action, drama (okay, just a little). This shows best seasons are 1, 2, 3, and 5. 4 is sort of annoying but they totally make up for it in the final season (5).
Gilmore Girls- who doesn't love Gilmore girls. The witty banter, the pop culture inserted in almost every scene (if not conversation) is awesome. I love the characters. I always wanted to have the confidence and sass of Lorelai Gilmore and the brains and grace of Rory. Who didn't love Luke? Seriously, I wanna know because they are probably crazy. This show has the best wardrobe (ok, it was the early 2000's) for its time, intro song ( I love Carole King), and the most awesome mother-daughter dynamic on t.v. When I was a teen I so wanted my mom to be Lorelai (good thing she wasn't though). I also just loved Jess, Rory's boyfriend, played by Milo Ventimiglia who was and is a babe. He was only on the show in season 2 and 3 and shows up in a few random episodes after then. I love LOVE seasons 1, 2, 3, and 5. 4 is boring, and 6 and 7 got different writers and its obvious. This show literally makes me happy after I watch it. Sadly, this show is off the air.
Psych- so awesome, so funny. I love the main characters, Shawn and Gus. There is so much 80's and 90's pop culture thrown into this that sometimes I look things up just to know what they are talking about. They are like watching two real best friends (that are slightly "special"). They have their inside jokes, mannerisms, and have a "mind connection". Its really a comedy but there have been a few (I can only think of 4) episodes that have been sort of dramatic. Their is a love interest in this show but it really doesn't over power it which is such a nice change. I have literally loved every single episode of this show that I have watched. I have only seen the first 5 seasons so there is some catching up I need to do, so please Netflix, if you are reading this- update this baby fast!
WARNING: The next two will show how completely nerdy, and weird I am. Please still be my friend.
#4. Doctor Who- This is complete nerdsville. It took me about six episodes to get into it but I was told that I had to stick with it and I am glad I did. It's basically cheesy on purpose sci fi. It does have a lot of good moral, plots, stories. It's also British and well, isn't the ideal show for some of us 'mericans. It's basically about an alien time traveller who goes by "The Doctor" and his human companions (women). He basically saves the world whilst teaching humans how valuable they are and what their are capable of doing. It's good. I must admit this though: I have only seen the first 4 or 5 seasons (2005 series). Something happens and I can't bear to keep watching. It's good though.
Merlin- its pretty easy to guess what this BBC (yeah it's British) show is about. I love the main character, Merlin, and I think young prince Arthur is pretty hot too. It has a really interesting way at looking at the whole Camelot story. I think its entertaining and captivating. I still have yet to see its most recent season (5). I really can't wait to see what they've come up with next. This show is also one of those shows where they make you hate the bad guy and make you love the heroes. It's also super clean which is really nice.
I hope you still want to be my friend after seeing what I put up here. There are so many other shows I like as well but these are probably my top 5... Until I go to bed at night and think of others :D. What do you like in a t.v. show? What are your favorites? Leave a comment and let me know. I am always up to learn about new ones I might enjoy.
