I'm a tv show addict. There I've said it. I love watching tv shows and I watch at least an episode of every show out there to see if I'll like it or not. I've compiled several shows that I've stuck through and I've been watching for at least a season or two.
One of my top three favorite shows, The Good Wife is everything I want in a show. It has an independent, kick butt female character, a wide array of memorable and interesting secondary characters, and law themed but with an actual continuing plot that carries on throughout the whole season. Alicia Florrik is a woman I personally look up to. Season 6 just started and that episode killed me. I have such high expectations for this show but I have never been disappointed.
I initially started watching it for the law theme and Matt, since I loved him as Logan in Gilmore Girls. However right now those are carrying the show beautifully (no, there is no romance between them)
Season 11 just premiered a couple of days ago and I teared up four different times watching the 40 minute episode. How the hell do the writers of Grey's Anatomy do that? I am always tearing up or full on crying while watching this show. I am happy to see all my favorite characters back: Derek, Meredith, April, and Jackson. This episode lays down the issues that most of the characters will face for the rest of the season. I'm somewhat afraid but I'm very excited!
Aren't they adorable? Derek and Meredith are one of my all time favorite screen couples
The Mentalist completes my current favorite three shows (with The Good Wife and Grey's Anatomy). Season seven unfortunately has gotten a mid season slot.. don't ask me why because I'm fuming over here. Why CBS would do this, I've no idea.. at least it's better than it getting cancelled, which is something my heart can't take. Patrick Jane has been a part of my tv life for the past six years and I am not ready to let go! especially after that last episode!
I love Modern Family, it never fails to crack me up. It is one of the few american comedy shows that I enjoy. The first episode of the new season, season 6, was hilarious and a ton of fun. I can always count on this show to put a smile on my face!
I miss having my extended family live close by me
This show is totally random I know. I personally don't care much for country music so how did I stumble upon this? I was bored. However, I'm glad I was because this show is unbelievably addicting! I love all the drama and while I sometimes skip the performances (I always always watch Clare Bowen's performances), I still love the show. The first episode had my heart pumping like crazy and I'm excited for more!
The third season's finale was a long series of gasps. Also, turns out season 4 will now be narrated by Victoria.. and we'll be following her revenge… wait what? yes, yes that isn't a mistake. It will be very interesting to see how the writers will set this up because a) while I love Victoria, I love her as a villain and b) she did something unforgivable that makes me now hate her, and not love her. However, Revenge gets better by each new season so I'm excited to see how this goes.
The Mindy Project is another comedy added to my to watch list. Mindy Kaling is an amazing writer, producer, and actor. I think her character is hilarious on the show and I find myself cracking up all the time. So far, based on the first two episodes of season 3, I'm quite happy with the new season!
Awkward is finally back on after taking the mid season break. It is currently on season 3 and I'm liking this whole season a lot more than last. It is probably due to the change in writers as well as some secondary characters (though I dearly miss Ming). The first episode (episode 12) was interesting but a bit rushed to resolve the problem that we've been facing for the past 11 episodes. I'm very excited to see what's coming up for this show
I've experienced a roller coaster ride with The Big Bang Theory. Initially I wasn't the biggest fan.. however over time I started to love it and the characters. I recently watched the season 6 premiere episode(s) and I was left slightly disappointed. I'm hoping the show picks up its hilarity and shows me why I've loved these characters for the past 5 seasons.
NEW FALL SHOWS
I was told Madam Secretary is the sister to The Good Wife, and as you all know.. that is some serious labeling. I decided to give it a try though and I really enjoyed the first episode! Another very strong and independent female lead with a really good plot. I'm already itching to watch the next episode.
I watched the series premiere of How To Get Away With Murder around six hours before creating this post. I only went into it knowing it revolves around law students who get implicated in a murder. I then found out it is one of Shonda Rhimes' creations.. you guys know how much I love Grey's Anatomy right? However, I also tried her other show Scandal but didn't like it so it was a 50/50 chance in terms of whether I'll like it or not. However Rhimes delivered! the episode kept me, literally, at the edge of my seat. I was so engrossed in the episode, i loved the pacing and the way the timeline was created. I'm seriously excited for the next episode of this!
What shows are you guys excited about starting? Recommend me any new shows too! I've tried A to Z as well as The Mysteries of Laura and they weren't that great. I am going to check out the series premiers of Gotham and Scorpion. Also, any old shows recommendations? Not knowing and checking out Nashville until a couple of months ago indicates that I might be missing on some prime tv.
