I don't have
much of a social life, and prefer to come home to a good TV series. Now, I'm only talking about those (mostly) American, binge watch entire series at once, shows in this post. We'd be here all day else! The shows I watch on a weekly basis, ones like GBBO, The Big Bang Theory, New Girl, 8 Out Of Ten Cats Does Countdown etc, are for another post. I've picked some questions from various tags to answer, and would be intrigued to know yours, too.
What was the first TV show you loved and watched religiously?
Technically, that would have been something like Art Attack, but in terms of a fictional series with a continuous story line, it'd have to be Buffy The Vampire Slayer or Charmed. I loved them so much. An episode of Buffy was on the TV the other day, and I noticed how unrealistic (not that vampires are real anyway) and non scary the vampire makeup was, but back in the day, it definitely was!
What are your favourite shows?
Chuck, Dexter, The Killing, The Originals, Prison Break, Desperate Housewives, The Vampire Diaries, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Orange is The New Black, 90210, CSI, Criminal Minds, Bones... the list goes on.
Chuck is probably in my top three because it was full of action, sometimes funny, and I just loved Chuck.
The Originals is a spin off of The Vampire Diaries, and I like it more because Klaus is in it. I'd definitely recommend watching it if you're a fan of TVD!
Some episodes of CSI and Criminal Minds can be a bit pants, but the good ones are really good. I prefer Criminal Minds over CSI because it has more psychos in. I don't know what that says about me.
What shows weren't you so keen on?
Okay, everyone seems to rave about True Blood, and it has high ratings, so I thought I'd give it a go. I couldn't get through the first episode, it was so comical. I then skipped about 4 seasons, and it was better, but still not great. I didn't find the acting good, and I couldn't stand the accent.
Homeland was okay, but I found it too slow paced and boring, so haven't continued watching the new series. It didn't help that I started watching it after Prison Break, which is full of action.
Supernatural was another I loved, but started to become bored of. I didn't care if someone died because, chances were, they'd come back anyway.
Pretty Little Liars. I'm bored of it now. I still watch it, but I'm not gripped, and end up laughing at the things A does.
American Horror Story. I really liked the Asylum series, and the others were okay, but I just didn't love them like everyone else.
Dexter. I LOVED Dexter, but the ending annoyed me. Apart from that, though, the series was fantastic.
What are you currently watching?
I've just finished The Killing, which I loved. I'm now 5 episodes into True Detective, which is okay. I'm finding it a little boring at the moment, but hoping it gets better.
What do you want to watch next?
Revenge has high ratings, and despite it looking cheesy, I think I'm going to watch that next. Please leave your suggestions below, though!
