I got the idea for this post from an article on the blog, lostgenygirl.com. The author, Kayla Buell, lists 100 lifestyle blog post ideas. I’ll definitely refer back to this when I don’t know what to write about. I’m especially busy, now that finals are approaching. Most of my projects are due in the next couple of weeks. But, I’d still like to take the time and write a post – since it’s something I really enjoy doing. Here is a list of my top 10 favorite TV shows:
- Gilmore Girls: I like the relationship between Lorelai and Rory; Lorelai is basically the coolest mom ever. Rory is easy for me to relate to, as she is more introverted. I like that we get to see her life through high school and college, and into the real world in the Netflix revival show, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. We also learn about Lorelai’s past and what led her to become pregnant with Rory. It’s a unique family drama full of fun surprises and exciting love interests. If you haven’t seen it, I would definitely recommend it!
2. Once Upon a Time: This is such a fun show! I love the fantasy genre and unique fairy tale stories that intertwine with one another. It’s interesting how characters go from good to evil and back again. Nothing is ever quite black and white. Emma Swan is just your average woman, except for her being a savior and the Mom of a young boy named Henry, who randomly shows up at her apartment one day. From there, everything changes…
3. Parks and Recreation: This comedy is fantastic – Leslie Knope is the Deputy Director of the Parks and Recreation department in Pawnee, Indiana. This office is full of silly shenanigans and humorous supporting characters. It’s heartwarming, entertaining and totally relatable. The characters truly make the show – from Andy Dwyer to April Ludgate and Ron Swanson. You’ll laugh out loud and enjoy the ride.
4. Glee: This one ended awhile ago! It’s one of my all-time favorites. I was always inspired by Rachel Berry’s determination to succeed. Plus, I love all the singing and dancing that is part of the McKinley High School Glee Club. Sue Sylvester is one of my all-time favorite villains – she is ruthless, competitive and aggressive. I also appreciate the relationship between Finn and Rachel, even though, sadly, Cory Monteith who played Finn, passed away some time ago (may he rest in peace). It’s a feel-good comedy that makes you realize how important your friends are.
5. Mad Men: I love the 1960s! If you like that time period and the advertising industry, this is the perfect show for you. It’s a great historical drama full of twist and turns. Who is Don Draper really? How did he end up on Madison Avenue? The characters are lovable and some less so (Pete isn’t so great at first…). Everyone has their own unique story of how they ended up working at Sterling Cooper Ad Agency. You also get to see the cultural shift from the 60s to the 70s later on in the show. It also helps that I understand the ad/marketing jargon – since I’m a Marketing major.
6. Gossip Girl: This is show is completely delightful and totally scandalous! These teenagers living on the Upper East Side are out of control and ready to party. Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen are the ideal friend duo. They have their ups and downs but they care about each other. There’s also Dan Humphrey aka Lonely Boy. Gossip Girl narrates the lives of these teenagers at a private school in New York City. Who could forget Chuck Bass and Nate Archibald too? If you like teenage dramas, this is the show for you.
7. Friends: This show is a classic for a reason! Rachel and Ross are perfect together. There are so many quotable moments from this show. “WE WERE ON A BREAK!”, “PIVOT!” and so many references to finding your lobster. Somehow, they were all able to afford nice apartments in the city and spend a lot of time at Central Perk. It’s a fun and delightful show that I would recommend for everyone to watch.
8. Desperate Housewives: This show is like Gossip Girl in the way of drama, but with housewives in their early 30s living on Wisteria Lane. There is an added level of suspense, drama and murders most foul. It’s pretty twisted, but so much fun to watch at the same time. You’ll love Lynette, Gabby, Susan and Bree and wish they were your friends.
9. Sex and the City: I couldn’t help but wonder…who doesn’t love a good Carrie Bradshaw quote? This is a feel good comedy and romantic drama about the lives of four New York City women navigating their love lives. You’ll find yourself relating to each of the girls at one point or another. I’m like a blend of Miranda and Charlotte.
10. Grey’s Anatomy: This show will probably never end. Though I’ve been personally victimized by Shonda Rhimes, I will keep watching it. Each character is flawed and unique with their own interesting problems. Adding in the pressure of open heart surgery keeps things interesting…
