10. The ChallengeOkay, so perhaps you're not a fan of reality TV. I don't watch that many reality TV shows, but this show is just super entertaining! I love watching the drama unroll on this show, love the challenges these guys have to put themselves through, the alliances, power plays, the backstabbing, the pranks, the relationships (Still not over CT and Diem breaking up. Probably never will be. Le sigh.) and nothing is better than discussing with a good friend *waves to Becca*
I'm late to this party considering that I started watching this only.. well, 2 months ago. I've known about it for years of course, but didn't think it was for me. After seeing an episode on TV, I found myself in front of the TV every night 7pm that week and devoured season 5 in 2 weeks and voilà! Hooked I was. Watched season 6 in 3 days and am thoroughly excited about season 7. Won't watch the older seasons right now, but maybe someday. I adore the humor and quirky twists. Some of the crime arcs are predictable, but I still adore them. They're so awesome! The ninja storyline is one of my favorites ever since Castle and his obsessions with everything other than rational explanations lol. Kate and Castle are just totes adorable. Also, Ryan and Esposito's bromance is just the best!
Arrow has a great flawed superhero, kick-a female characters, Olicity (Hello, my Arrow OTP!), plot twists, painful character deaths, subtle humor and a tiny bit of mystery? Well, if that doesn't convince you then perhaps this will (because there's a LOT *of that* going on in this show)
Allllllright, I hate Fitz. I hate Olivia. I hate Jake. I hate Mellie. I hate Cyrus. I hate Olivia's parents. I hate Fitz's dad so freakin' bad. I hate Huck. I hate Quinn. I love Charlie. Actually, I love everyone else as well. Except Fitz's dad and well.. Fitz. Most of the days I hate Fitz. Though there are moments. Idk. I hate all of these characters, but at the same time I love [almost] allof them to no lengths. Discussing it with Jasprit, Aman and Rashika is simply awesome. This show takes plot twisty to a whole anotehr level and you never know what's coming (OH GAWD THAT SEASON 3 FINALE! LE GASP x infinity). Even though Liv annoys me to no end lately and I ship a ship that's been doomed from the start, I DO NOT CARE. Me loves this show. Me loves my gladiators.
Um, yes. Season 1 was all kinds of epic. Season 2 sucked bad and season 3 was once again back on track. One of the best season finales I've ever seen and totally gasp-worthy. My ship is forever dead and I don't know how to go on from here *starts sobbig* Ugh. It's so frustrating, but I love the feels. I just love them. I want to bitch-slap Daniel Grayson so hard, laugh at Victoria's face when she gets what's coming for her, have Nolan get his HEA and Emily to finally get some peace. The ride to that place will be all kinds of painful, but point me to the direction of the nearest train station because I'm ready to get on the train to Crazyville. Shit is about to go down and I'm ready. Also, it has one of my favorite friendships ever: Nolan and Emily always bring me feels. Always. Theirs is the kind of friendships you want to have yourself.
5. Gilmore Girls
A small-town tale? An amazing mother-daughter friendship? Lots and lots of rumors? Epic love stories? Hilarious awkward moments? Super fun episodes? Character growth? Great actors? What more could one ask for? Seriously one of the best, sweetest and most humble tv shows I've ever seen. Yet to watch the final two seasons since I got into a slump, but whatevs. Doesn't change the fact that everyone should watch this because sarcasm and humor.
4. Grey's Anatomy
Since season 1 this has been epic and more epic upon the usual epic. It's a show where I love every single character, the humor, the quirky friendships, the drama, the tears, the twists--just everything. Christina and Meredith's friendship is so freakin' inspiring and add Alex to the mix.. I can't even. I love these people. They're my people (pun intended). And I miss Lexi and Mark terribly. Oh gawd. I'm getting teary eyed. Just thinking about that scene in the forest *blinks 'em tears away* My OTP just.. yeah. I'm very excited about next season even though Sandra Oh left. She was by far my favorite character, but I'm certain that Shonda has a thousand twists for us to make us and the character go through hell and back before we get our cheesy epilogue with a fluffy, gorgeous and well-deserved finale of finales.
3. One Tree Hill
You guys. You. Guys!!! I devoured all 9 seasons in 2 months. It was just everything and more. The complexity and depth in every character, the relationships and redemption? The fact that a character I despised so much at first became one of my favorite characters in TV history? (Brooke Davis, I'm looking at you.) The bromance between Lucas and Nathan? I just love everything about this show. My OTP is Naley and forever will be on this show because they are the true meaning of opposites attract and I love it. I love the passion that drives every single character on this show and it's most definitely one you should have watched by now. Here's some epic Naley kissing for you:
2. Once Upon a Time
Um, okay. So I used to think that this show wasn't for me. Boyyyy was I ever wrong. It's amazing! The characters, the fairy tales, the retellings, the twists, the ships. MY GAWD THE SHIPS!! #CaptainSwan is basically my life when it comes to this show. I love that the villains are so complex and not one-dimensional. Excpet for Cora whom I thoroughly disliked and was bored with. The number 2 in front of the title should be a clear indication for you all to start watching it. ASAP! You wouldn't want to miss this epic pirate also known as I-need-to-fan-myself-constantly-during-his-scenes on your tv screen:
1. Teen Wolf
Was there seriously someone who knows me and didn't guess that this would be the number one choice? *grins* I cannot seem to shut up about it. Stiles and Scott's bromance is EVERYTHING. STILES IS EVERYTHING. Dylan O'Brien is just. Sigh. No words needed. Absolutely brilliant and has no limits whatsoever. There are kick-a girls, *ahem* *waves to Kira, Lydia, Malia and Allison* mythology (Hello there, season three and Japanese mythology), plot twists upon more plot twists and humor and sarcasm and Stiles and amazing friendships and exciting romances and awesome villains you just love to hate and and and the parents are so present and involved in everything and.. This show is basically my life. Oops. SORRY, NOT SORRY, 'KAY. I just love it so. There are no words to express how much I'm obsessed with Teen Wolf and seriously, you guys! If you watch the pilot and you think it's complete BS like I thought when I first tried it three summers ago? Well.. just read the recap on wikipedia (or push through the 13 episodes since Stiles' one-liners) and jump into season 2 which is where the real awesomeness starts. Everyone needs to start watching this show RIGHT. NOW.
My Kitchen Rules, So You Think You Can Dance, Hit the Floor, Witches of East End, Reign, The 100, Charmed, Beauty and the Beast, Friends, Nikita, The Originals. At one point I've watched all of these or am still watching some of these. Told you I watch a lot of shows :)
And that's it. Was my fangirling too bad? I hope I didn't scare you away. In all honesty though, the top three are must-watch for everyone! Do you have any great shows to recommend me? I'm thinking about starting Orphan Black and Orange is the New Black. I started Under the Dome a few weeks ago, but watch it irregularly whenever it's on TV. Anyhow, let me know about your favorite shows and ships and everything slightly fangirl-worthy :)
