Macarena (S&D)  

Continuing my streak of talking about stuff that is not books! But then, I saw this tag and I knew I had to do it because how could I not? I LOVE watching TV. In fact, if you didn’t know from my last posts, I’ve actually sold my soul to the devil just so I can have more time to read AND watch TV. Also, this post is sponsored by Thanksgiving, a time when we remember the things we are thankful for, and TV is one of them (for me).

This is the original post, if you want to check it out. Spread good broadcasting awareness people!

Favourite shows?

Gaawwd! WHERE DO I START??? Again, I watch a LOT of TV okay, and it’s just too hard for me, right now to pick my favourites. BECAUSE IT’S THE GOLDEN AGE OF TV. But, if I had to pick, it would be

Just kidding. XD Here’s my top 10:

  1. Doctor Who: always and forever my #1. How excited are you guys for the new Doctor? Cause I am so down. But I miss Capaldi 😥 He was the best
  2. Black Mirror: love this show. It’s the reason i no longer trust technology. except wi-fi. Doctor Who is the reason I don’t trust wi-fi.
  3. The Office:That’s what she said! Gosh do I love the US version. I haven’t seen the UK one yet so you guys’ll have to tell me if it’s any good. But, like when I’m working on my laptop (graphic based course so i’m usually on CAD/photoshop), it’s the perfect show to have on in the background. And that’s how I actually watched it the first time
  4. 30 Rock: Same thing. I watched this while working. I’m 6 semesters into my course and have finished 5 more than 5 season sitcoms this way. It’s like the best of both worlds. But, with 30 rock, I just LOVE Tina Fey’s witty writing style and the whole cast, especially Jack Donaghy (but I mean who doesn’t love Jack right?)
  5. The Handmaid’s Tale: Ummm…can I just say outright that this show is perhaps the most beautiful thing I will ever see with my own two eyes? I mean, it is just perfect how they’ve portrayed what is one of my favourite books of all time. Can’t wait for season 2!
  6. Bojack Horseman: Suffice to say anyone who has watched this show lists it as one of their favourites. It’s just so real, and witty. This show is not afraid to bare it all and it has really helped me with my mental health issues. Gah! I love it!
  7. Scrubs: Hands down, one of the best sitcoms ever. Hilarious, but not afraid to expose its emotional side. Quirky, yet grounded in reality. And, added bonus, it has some of THE best music used in a TV show ever.
  8. Orphan Black: Tatiana Maslany is goals okay? She is just soooo talented it is insane! She’s the reason I stuck by this show even during its rocky phase. The characters Manson and Fawcett created are basically family to me.
  9. The Good Place: boy is that show killing it!
  10. Westworld: the last 2 episodes REALLY sealed the deal on this one)

This is why it’s so hard to pick favourite shows. There are so many I haven’t mentioned. I didn’t mention House, or Jessica Jones, or Black Butler, or NARUTO, or Attack on Titan, or A Series Of Unfortunate Events (how AMAZING is that show??). It’s just…10 shows does NOT cover it but these 10 are pretty close to the type of thing I watch. Also, I consciously did not mention Firefly (which is one of my favourite things ever) because even though I love it, I’ve been questioning if it works past its first season.Like would I still love it if there was a second season (I mean I totally would but right now it’s just a what if. The second season could easily just bomb and not do well.)

Gosh that’s a long answer. Bear with me folks.

 

Favourite genre?

Sci-fi or witty sitcoms. There is no in between. Side note: is Netflix a genre now? Cause then, I would add Netflix.

 

Least favourite show?

Pretty Little Liars. I stuck by the show for 6 seasons before finally giving it up because by that point I just couldn’t anymore. Also not so hot on Big Bang Theory, because it is JUST NOT FUNNY. Also (get your mob stakes out now I guess) I’ve fallen out of love with FRIENDS. Maybe because I watched it sooo many times, but it’s like…it’s too mainstream now.

 

Most rewatched show/favourite show to binge watch?

Scrubs. When I just can’t figure out what I want to watch or have nothing new to watch while I work, I’ll just pop in an episode or two of Scrubs. Interesting fact: my most rewatched episode of Scrubs, My Musical. I am a sucker for musicals. And it’s funny EVERY time. Doctor Who is a close second.

 

Do you prefer watching things week-by-week or binge-watching?

If I had the time, and if the episodes were available, it would be binge-watch all the way. But, there is something to be said about the once a week format. Because

(STORY TIME)

When I was in my first year of college, I was a simple child and had few pleasures in life (TV being one, of course!) and in our dorms, we weren’t allowed to illegally download anything (Piracy is bad kids) but I had my own portable wi-fi so I would download shows I wanted to watch anyway. And then, I didn’t watch much. It was 2014 and Netflix hadn’t risen to power yer. So, the few shows I did watch that were on a week to week broadcast (Th Strain, Castle and this show called Helix…not sure if you guys have heard about it). And the best part of my day would be going back to my dorm room and downloading the episode and watching it all in one go. You just can’t beat that level of joy when once every week, you have something to look forward to, even if you’ve had a shitty day.

 

Favourite television characters?

Oh boy. Must they ask such ambiguous questions! How do I name my favourites from dozens of shows?? So here’s another top 10 I guess.

  1. The Doctor (from Doctor Who)
  2. Eichorst (from The Strain)
  3. Abraham Setrakian (again from The Strain)
  4. Dr. Cox (from Scrubs)
  5. LIz Lemon (from 30 Rock)
  6. Felix Dawkins (from Orphan Black)
  7. Jessica Jones (from Jessica Jones)
  8. Rick Sanchez (from Rick and Morty)
  9. Abed Nadir (from Community)
  10. Red (from The Blacklist)

Too tired to explain why they’re my favourites. So, moving on!

 

Favourite television ships?

Not my favourite question, because really I think love is dead…Just JK. I do have a few favs. The Doctor and Rose are my favourite! I also love Chuck and Sarah (from Chuck which is a show I just started watching), Elliot and JD (Scrubs), Holly and Michael (The Office), Castle and Beckett(Castle) and Mike and El (Stranger Things) just to name a few. 😀

 

Show you could never get into?

Supernatural. I just, I just couldn’t. (And let the persecutions begin.)

 

Show you fell out of love with?

So many!

The Strain…while I loved the first 2 seasons, once they changed the kid, basically everything went downhill. I couldn’t get past even the first two episodes of the final season.

How To Get Away With Murder…I loved the show when it was episodic and I did stick by it when they started the second season’s story arc. But I just got so confused and frustrated with the whole Wes back story that I couldn’t watch it anymore.

Pretty Little Liars…too convoluted.

Castle…once they lost the quirky mystery aspect and once Caskett were like officially a thing, the show lost so much steam.

 

Cancelled too soon?

Hello…isn’t it obvious? Firefly! I just wish I could be proved wrong with a banging second season of this show. I want this to happen so badly!

Also, there was this random show, that starred Kiefer Sutherland called Touch which got cancelled after its second season. Now, I totally agree that the second season was some of the worst writing I’d ever seen but the first season of the show was so…sublime. The episodic arcs were just…amazing. So I just wish they could have a do-over.

 

Guilty pleasure show?

Project Runway! Make it work! Also Masterchef Australia. (I mean they’re both not guilty pleasure in the sense that I don’t think you should feel guilty about something you enjoy…but from the reality show perspective (which I don’t watch AT ALL)

Bonus Tim Gunn gif (y)

 

What are you currently watching?

I’m gonna mention Timeless here because I’ve come to the end of the post and I haven’t mentioned it even once. Seriously guys, check it out! That show is amazing.

But currently, I’m watching Chuck (just started, spare this girl the spoilers), The Leftovers (I know I know…it’s over and I’m a bit late but the first season just left me so done that I needed time to get back to it), The Expanse and I’m rewatching The Office, Parks and Recreation and Wizards of Waverly Place.
