tv shows
Meet my lovers. Originally the challenge was just to pick out five TV-shows, but I changed it to ten, because five was far to few. I figured ten would be more than enough. I was wrong. I had to kill some of my darlings for this, like Rizzoli and Isles, 30 Rock and Wire in the Blood. But this is a neat mix of my all time favourites, current obsessions and just some sheer epicness that would have been a crime to leave out. Hope you enjoy. All of these are shows you NEED to watch. In alphabetical order:
The Addams Family (1964-1966)
If you haven't seen this, then you're not a true Addams Family fan. This is the real shit. It's actually very different from the films from 1991 and 1993, it's more fun and comedy, and morbid in a less gory way. Very quality for being almost 50 years old.
Ashes to Ashes (2008-2010)
Ashes is a sequel to Life on Mars, from 2006. You should probably watch that before Ashes, or you will be seriously confused. As I'm sure I've told you before, I watched it the other way around, but it only worked because I already knew what happened in LoM, because my dear BFF Sanna told me. When Ashes was still on air in 2010, it was much like it is with Once now, it was the ONLY thing I talked about. I have a very obsessive personality when it comes to things like this, in case you haven't noticed. Anyway, if you're gonna watch this and LoM, make sure it's the British version, and not the American, because that would be the wrong version. Very wrong.
Castle (2009- )
I've been a sucker for crime shows since always. I got stuck on Castle because it has this mystery touch to most of the crimes, which makes it a bit more exciting. It's also a fangirl's dream, since not shipping Castle and Beckett is close to impossible. And just look at Stana Katic's face. How is she even real? And if you search hair porn on Urban Dictionary, Stana Katic's hair is the first suggestion. Just sayin'.
Doctor Who (2005- )
I don't even know what to say. This show has everything I could dream of. Aliens, costume drama, crime, magic (sort of) and people in suits. What more can a girl ask for?
I only watched Firefly for the first time late last spring, and it took a while before I got caught in it, but since then I've rewatched it three times. Just, you know, space, and grungy outfits, crime and... space. I'm just gonna go ahead and state the obvious: It shouldn't have been cancelled after just once season. It was a really bad move, Fox!
Oh, my darling darling Fringe. You will always have a special place in my heart. You set the bar so high for new TV-shows, and I think there is yet to come one as great as you. Anna Torv is a godess in so many ways. I still refuse to accept that it has in fact ended now. I am watching the final episodes later tonight, and are therefore avoiding tumblr and twitter right now. I don't know how to handle this in any other way than denial.
Once Upon a Time (2011- )
The show I LOVE to HATE. I know I said in the beginning of this post that these are all TV-show that you need to watch. I meant, except for this one. It's the best tv-show idea executed in the worst possible way. If you have yet not sold your soul to Once, then DON'T DO IT. It's really pretty awful. And just when you think that it can't get any worse, it does. The only thing that makes it worthwhile is Lana Parrilla as Regina aka Snow White's Evil Queen. She is absolutely amazing and must have been born for this role. If she is ever killed off or leaves the show for whatever reason, I will stop watching. I don't even care about what happens afterwards. Actually I don't even care about what happens in the show now, I just want to watch Lana.
Sherlock (2010- )
So few episodes, so much quality. And we're probably not even half through the wait for the next series. I will never forget when s02e03 ended, and the god-awful cliff hanger. We just want to know what happened!
Twin Peaks (1990-1991)
This show ended with the worst cliff hanger ever, and we will never know what happened. It's the worst. I'm actually planning on rewatching this now, because I haven't seen it in ages. I was SO in love with Agent Cooper the last time around. He's just... ah. And Audrey Horne is pretty badass. I also used to know the whole Fire Walk with Me poem/whatever-it-was by heart. Need to relearn it.
I love this show so much I have actually permanently marked my body with one of it's catch phrases. Most of you probably know that on the inside of my left forearm it says "I WANT TO BELIEVE". If that's not commitment then I don't know what is. Scully is my ever ongoing girl crush, but I'm actually a lot more like Mulder. Because I really do want to believe. I take much pride in having seen every single episode, except for one, but it was from season 9, so it's okay.
There you go. See you soon for 5 female characters. I don't even know how I'm supposed to pick out only five?
