When Books Take A Break – Favorite TV Shows {Top Ten Tuesday}

160906 TTT Favorite TV Shows

Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Book are awesome. We all know that by now.

But sometimes… we like to get our story-fix in a different way. Sometimes… we are just not in the mood for books (hey, it happens). In that case, we can always turn to our other favorite companion: TV.

I love TV. I love watching series. They’re like books: wonderful stories filled with amazing characters that you will laugh, cry and swoon with. Except, the visual is not in your head, but on the screen.

So in honor of the new TV season almost starting I present to you: a looong list of all my favorite tv-shows, both young and old! (Warning: some fangirling may occur)

Status: Current Obsession

(I’m caught up with all the episodes and am very impatiently waiting for new episodes)

Game of Thrones

OMG, how amazing was this last season? We got so many answers, asses were kicked and we are suddenly moving along towards the end super fast. I am both excited and so not ready yet.

The 100

The 100

I love this show. I really do. Why do I still have to wait until next year to get my fix? I need more of these characters.

Agents of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD

I must say, this show was good before, but ever since the inhumans have been introduced it’s been even more awesome. Also, Fitzsimmons are my OTP.

Teen Wolf

Teen Wolf

Sigh. One more season and then I’m afraid this will move into the list of shows that are unfortunately over but will be binge-watched once every year.

The Flash

The_Flash

This show has just been solidly entertaining for two seasons now already. And I’m super curious to see what season 3 will bring.

Arrow

Arrow

Honestly, I was not a fan of season 4. But I’m still hoping that season 5 will bring this show back to it’s season 2-like glory days.

Once Upon A Time

Once Upon A Time

Bring on all the fairytales. I need them all. Also: one more OTP alert because Emma/Hook is my life.

Status: Catch-Up Needed

(I love these shows but am behind a few episodes or even seasons.)

Orphan Black

Orphan Black

I love my little clone babies, but I’m unfortunately still stuck at season 2. Need to catch up!

Orange is the New Black

Orange is the New Black

See Orphan Black and replace ‘little clone babies’ with ‘little criminal babies’.

Outlander

Outlander season 1

I have convinced myself I must first read Dragonfly in Amber before I can watch season 2. Sooo… this might take a while.

Supernatural

supernatural

Ah I adore the Winchester bros (and Cas), but I still have the last season to catch up on.

Status: All-Time Favorites

(The show is already over but I still love them and regularly binge-watch them again)

Gilmore Girls

Gilmore Girls

This show is a staple for whenever I’m having a bad day. I love it so much and I’m so excited for the revival! Currently binge-watching this and am at season 6. I’m an unapolagetic Luke/Lorelai and Rory/Jess shipper so revival, please help a girl out here.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I practically grew up with this show and I must have watched every episode about 10 times by now. Now that I think about it, I feel like it’s time again for a rewatch!

Veronica Mars

Veronica Mars

Come on, who doesn’t love the snarky, sassy PI? I’m still bummed we only got 3 seasons though, but at least it was 3 seasons of pure awesomeness. And a movie, let’s not forget the movie!

Do you watch any of these shows? Feel free to fangirl with me in the comments! Any other recommendations for me?

    I’m so behind on Once Upon a Time. They stopped showing it here and without Netflix we have to wait on the dvd boxes, haha. I love Gillmore Girls as well. <3 Luke and Lorelai all the way.

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      I totally understand – I just got Netflix a short time ago and before that it was also always waiting and waiting for the DVD boxes to finally come out 🙂 As a matter of fact, I still have all the DVD boxes of Gilmore Girls 😉 And yay for Luke and Lorelai!

  2. Jolien @ The Fictional Reader says:

    A yay for Buffy and Veronica! I really want to watch the rest of Gilmore Girls, I’ve only watched 4 seasons or so. And I’m also so sad Teen Wolf will be over soonish. I feel like that show just gets better every season. And darker too. And yes to Emma/Hook and OUAT. I haven’t watched the latest season completely yet, but I want to do that soon.

    Great list!

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      Buffy and Veronica are my all-time faves, I can imagine still binge watching their seasons when I’m 60 🙂 I honestly love the first 4 seasons of Gilmore Girls the most, but seasons 5-7 are pretty good too! I’m super excited for the revival though!

  3. Cait @ Paper Fury says:

    I will fangirl endlessly over Supernatural and Teen Wolf with you!! AHHHHHH. SPN can do no wrong basically.? And I’ll be sad when Teen Wolf is over *wails* but I actually am not all caught up on that #oops so I should do that sometime. Basically I have NO time to watch TV and read. But I want to?!? I need more hours omg.?

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      Oh yay, Supernatural and Teen Wolf fangirling!!! Well, I guess it’s a good thing that you still have some Teen Wolf to catch up on, it means there is still more of the show for you to enjoy 😉 before it stops, which I’m not completely over yet :'(
      And I understand, every free moment is always a struggle: do I read? Or catch up on a show? Read? Or catch up on a show? More hours are definitely welcome! 🙂

    The 100 is awesome. Probably my favorite show right now. And Game of Thrones- yeah. I used to dread getting the ending on the show before in the books, but now I’m okay with it. Since it’s going to happen anyway lol. Must know the end!!! Love the Flash too and Orphan Black is amazing.

    I’d like to try Veronica MArs…

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      Yes, The 100! I’m always sad that we get such short seasons and so have to wait so long between them. But every single episode is so, so very good so that makes up for it also 🙂
      Definitely recommend Veronica Mars – especially the first two seasons are amazing!

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      I love Gilmore Girls, it’s still my go-to show for whenever I need a pick-me-up 🙂 So glad you’re a Rory/Jess lover too! I’m secretly hoping super hard that they’ll end up together in the revival but I trust the showmakers to give us a satisfying ending either way. Though Luke/Lorelai is kind of a must 😉

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      I understand, I’ve only just caught up with these shows during the summer months. And I’ve had to drop a few shows which I’m already several seasons behind on… There’s just too many shows (and books of course) and not enough time! 😉

  5. Gabby says:

    I’m trying to get my husband to watch BtVS with me…I feel a rewatch coming on and I think it would be the perfect way to get him to see it for the first time!

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      Oh I hope you’ll get your husband to watch with you and he will enjoy it just as much! With all this talking about TV shows, I totally feel a rewatch coming on too 🙂 It’s been a while since I marathoned all seasons of BtVS, so I think it’s time 😉
