Hosted by The Broke and Bookish
There's NO WAY I could narrow this down to movies, period, and no way I could narrow this down to tv shows unless I limited myself to shows that are currently still going. I was actually surprised how many shows I am catching up on that have already finished, or how some that would have appeared even a year or two ago (Covert Affairs, Supernatural) aren't so much my thing in these recent seasons. ...but then I thought, why limit myself? So here are my Top 20 tv shows (of the English speaking, non-animated sort. Might as well add that disclaimer too, or I'd have another 15 shows to add haha)
Top Ten Ongoing Series
Ok, so I didn't love this last season, and I'm not sure I like where they're going at ALL with next season's story line in regards to Regina...but I feel like some of not loving this is just that in comparison to how freaking amazing the first two seasons are, it's hard to measure up. Fairy tale retellings get me every time, and Robert Carlyle as Rumple is one of the best things I've ever seen.
So is Hook's face.
So is Hook's face.
If you were reading my blog a couple months ago, you already know all the reasons why this show is basically perfect. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if this show isn't already secretly the #1 show of my heart...
I actually have a huge addiction to cop dramas (despite the lack of them on the rest of this list), but this one by far takes the cake. Olivia Benson is basically my hero. Some of you know a little bit of what I went through last year with one of my stalkers, and anytime I am dealing with the aftermath of that, Olivia Benson is basically gets me through. Especially with what she goes through in the last season. I may miss the Captain and Munch and Eliot, but the new cast has been doing a great job too!
Ok guys, we're all sad Matt Smith has left the show. But I'M SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR PETER CAPALDI!!! I think he might end up being my favourite. Mostly because he's just such an amazing actor, but partially because they've said they're going to tone down on the romance stuff. I know everyone loves Rose, and I did like that part of the show, but Martha just about did me in and Amy was...unnecessarily love triangleish with The Doctor. I'm sure that's a part of the reason why Donna is my favourite companion (closely followed by Amy and Rory). Anyway I'm talking too much. Go watch this show.
I feel like everyone needs to see Season 2 of this show because it is a work of art.
OH MY GOD THE SEASON FINALE TO SEASON 3 IS KILLING ME. And once again, I don't have access to Season 4 yet D-:
I credit Kirsty entirely with getting me addicted to this show! I also can't watch Season 4 on this one yet (BOOOO) but it has been really amazing so far :)
So perfectly awakward and geeky...(although I've only watched a little bit of Season 4). I just pretty much super love Felicia Day and Wil Wheaton
For some reason I often forget how freaking hilarious I think this show is. I love ALL the characters (but especially Mitch)
This show is the perfect mix of funny, crazy, geeky, and heart warming.
Top Five Completed Shows
This show shouldn't need any introduction or reasons why it's one of the best things in existence. After seeing my list above, did any of you really think this wouldn't be pretty much my favourite show?
I'm actually surprised I ended up loving this as much as I did. It took a while to draw me in beyond basic enjoyment, but god did I end up loving this show and all its kooky characters! It's also got one of my favourite ships (Zane/Joe)
Oh my GOD I love this show and I get so upset that I feel like it's the least popular Whedon show! A lot of people genuinely didn't like it, and I just don't get it.
A. Joss Whedon
B. Eliza Dushku is freaking hot. As is Priya Tsetsang
C. THE TWISTS
D. The acting is fantastic (except Paul. Fuck Paul)
E. Did I mention Joss Whedon made this?
But really, it's just such an amazing concept. And my room mate who doesn't generally watch sci-fi stuff (the one who I finally got to watch OUAT, which he loved, and Doctor Who, which he didn't) also really loved this show. So give this show a chance!
You know, I have almost no recollection of the first two seasons. I have this vague recollection of not watching the episodes consecutively, so this show is due for a rewatch as it is. But the last three seasons?! The FEELS. And science! And paranormal science! And family shennanigans and cows and <333 br="">333>
For those of you who don't know, this is a spin off of Doctor Who, involving one of the best characters ever - Captain Jack Harkness (He who will sleep with anything that moves. Probably literally). This show definitely feels more adult than DW, just as a warning, but it also is blunt and unafraid in a way that DW isn't. And again, it may have taken a while for me to warm up to this show past enjoyment into full on crazy love, by the time you get to the fifth season...*sobs*
Top Five Cancelled Shows
WHY ON EARTH WAS THIS SHOW CANCELLED?! I waited for a a whole year before discovering they had cancelled it and..and..it's just not fair!! This was one of my favourite shows ever. On the upside, at least it wasn't like when Kingdom (which would totally be on this list if I hadn't limited myself to five shows) was cancelled after dropping a huge bomb on your lap. So when you get to the end of this, you won't be like A;SDJS WTF?!...just upset you don't get more.
This show on the otherhand...the last episode was one of the craziest things I've ever seen haha
If you liked Arrested Development, you should check out this show. The humour is similar in a lot of ways, but I personally think this is way funnier. (Also Phil and Lem are THE BEST.)
It used to be that the words "Space Western" would have me completely uninterested in a show. But luckily I loved Buffy enough to give this show a go, and luckily this show has Serenity to wrap it up (...sort of). I basically tied my roommate to a chair so he would watch this show, and he ended up loving it. (...you know, as I'm making these lists, it's occurring to me just how good natured my roommate is lol)
HOLY CRAP this show!!! I mean it's a boarding school (although I think I just pretended it was a college the whole time since it felt more like that) and it's got secrets and hints of sci-fi weirdness and dear god why did they do this to me?! I actually watched this right after Kingdom, and now have sworn off all British television (other than Doctor Who and Sherlock) that has not already completed because I just can't handle their one season uncompleted shenanigans.
