Top Ten Tuesday | 7 TV Shows I Love
In addition to being a self-diagnosed book nerd, I’m also a TV addict. This can be something of a problem when deciding how to spend the weekend. Do I read or binge-watch a favorite TV show? This is a constant “dilemma” for this fangirl. Most of the time the latter wins out, only it comes about after I’ve put in a block of writing. This is why I’ve chosen television as my story medium for today’s Top Ten Tuesday meme.
Broke and Bookish June 7th Topic
Ten Reasons I Love _____
(could be a certain book, character, author, your indie bookstore, a fandom, a tv show, reading, a hobby, a genre. Honestly anything you want to gush about.)
I love everything good there is to love about TV shows. Its ups and downs, the drama (as long as it’s not Shondaland extreme), the comedy and emotion, the ships and romance; and of course, the intensity with which the writer’s challenge not just their characters, but us. Sure, TV shows exasperate me to no end (especially where the ships are concerned), but I still love it just the same. Best of all, there are a lot of FEELS and fangirl flails which are only really appropriate in TV land. Why is this? Because the rest of the time, we are busy adulting, so we take every chance we get to be passionate about said fandoms.
With all that said, I’ve chosen to list 7 of the shows I’m currently binge-watching. Don’t mistake, this is by no way a comprehensive list as I watch far too many television shows, however what this is a collection of are the shows I’m watching (primarily judging by my iTunes account) now while others like NCIS or Castle I buy on DVD. Let’s get started.
1. Agent Carter (ABC)
Sadly, this one was recently cancelled, but I’m still back a bit since I’ve yet to finish season two (its swan song). So far, it’s the usual blend of charm, sophistication and adventure. Peggy Carter rules. What more can one say?
2. Blindspot (NBC)
Still working my way through the puzzling complexities of this 2015 debut. Still loving every minute.
3. Bunheads (ABC Family)
Back when Freeform was still ABC Family, the creators of Gilmore Girls pitched the little series called Bunheads. Though widely thought to be too similar to GG (which I totally understand), it’s delightful. I’m two episodes away from finishing this charming small-town series.
4. Chuck (NBC)
This show is long since cancelled, but earlier this year, I finally took the plunge and bought an episode on iTunes. That one episode turned into 3 and then 6, and well, you understand the rest. I’m now in the early episodes of season two, and after weeks of not watching any episodes (my laptop had attitude problems, and decided to quit) I’m back in super nerd spy Chuck Bartowski’s world. I love it.
5. Houdini & Doyle (Fox)
Loving this hilarious period drama series (miniseries?) Fox recently premiered. It’s as classy as it is comedic, plus I like the characters quite a lot even if the casting isn’t traditional.
6. Intelligence (CBS)
This show has been cancelled, but I’m really enjoying working through the first season.
The chemistry between the leads is quite good, too.
7. Stitchers (Freeform)
This sci-fi mind-bending story has been fun because of the leading heroine, Kristen, is a unique complex young woman who’s opinions never cease to make us laugh. She’s blunt and isn’t afraid to say what she thinks. It makes for great scripting, and we love her in spite of the insults.
That’s a wrap on June’s first Top Ten Tuesday meme. What are some of the TV shows currently pulling you away from reading? I love to know about them. What topic did you pick today? Leave your Top Ten Tuesday links if you like. I’d be glad to visit.
Happy Tuesday, and thank you for visiting Finding Wonderland.
