My favourite TV shows...


As a lover of both lists and TV shows I thought I would post about some of my favourite shows...


Buffy the Vampire Slayer



If you are a regular reader of my blog you'll have probably picked up on my Buffy obsession. As a teenager it was the first show I properly got into and I grew up with it (even bunking off college early on Wednesdays so I didn't miss the first part of the episode... that's dedication!) My favourite character is probably Spike ("Angel's lame. His hair goes straight up, and he's bloody stupid!" not an Angel fan!) I love that beneath the vampires, demons, and werewolves there is a really funny, but also really heartbreaking drama about growing up. Also Buffy is a total badass, who always has a witty one liner up her sleeve.


American Horror Story



If you love horror than the chances are you will love AHS. Each season is based round a totally different story and era, the only thing staying the same being a lot of the regular actors. The first season Murder House, was set in 2011 with a family moving into a sinister house. The second (and so far my favourite) Asylum was set in an insane asylum in the 60s, the third Coven followed a coven of witches in 2013, and the incoming fourth season is called Freakshow and is set in the 50s. The show is really quite dark and twisted and keeps you on the edge of your seat right till the end.


Homeland



This isn't the kind of TV show I am usually interested in (terrorists, CIA, etc...) but there is so much more to this show than that. It follows a CIA agent called Carrie who believes that a recently found POW has been turned into a terrorist after being held hostage for eight years. What follows is a story that is full of twists, and that constantly keeps you guessing. Another thing that makes this show more interesting is complicated private lives of the characters. Carrie has bipolar (portrayed on the whole brilliantly), and POW Brody is understandably messed up, there's all sorts of other stuff going on! Personally I like to pretend there is no season three as I get far too emotionally attached to shows and what happens is too much to deal with!( ;´Д`)
 Breaking Bad


Obviously I have to mention Breaking Bad, as like everyone else I became completely addicted with this show. I won't bother explaining the premise of it, as I'm sure everyone knows but I loved the clever storyline that kept hooking you in. I felt the big ending was perfect too, and I'm sure it's a show I will rewatch again at some point.


Ashes to Ashes

My last pick is a BBC show from a few years back. It's a sequel to the show Life on Mars where a cop gets hit by a car and wakes up in 1973 having no idea why or what's happened. I much prefer the sequel because although it retains the humour it's much much darker. This time it focuses on Alex who get shot and wakes up in 1981. She's a great character who has an answer for everything and takes no shit. Also, the amazing 80s soundtrack and questionable fashion made me instantly love this show! This also has a satisfying ending that explain both series.

Other mentions... The X Files, Being Human (UK), Lie To Me, This is England, Orange is the New Black, Luther.

So those are my favourite TV shows.... next on my list of lists to do(!) is my favourite comedy shows. Now that's a whole new story! 


Which TV shows do you love?
