Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Wow, this is the second time in a row that I’m a day late with my Top Ten Tuesday post. I could bore you with all kinds of (valid) excuses, but let’s just get on with the show! When I saw this week’s topic is favourite TV shows I got all giddy and excited: I love watching TV shows and talking about them. Plus, I watch way too many of them, so making this list would be a breeze.
Well… It sort of was, but I kept thinking I was forgetting a show I really love and should definitely make the list. So, it took a little while after all. And I probably forgot something because I watch way more shows than just these ten, to be honest.
Anyway, here’s my top ten, in no particular order!
Okay, I said these were in no particular order but oh my god, guys, this show! This is my absolute all time favourite TV show, no doubt about it. If any of my friends are reading this right now they’re probably grinning or nodding knowingly. This is the show I know by heart and have watched SO many times that I lost count. I’m the person we all hate who talks along with the characters’ lines. I also get quite passionate about it, in case you hadn’t noticed…
This is the second show that immediately came to mind. I’ve been watching Grey’s Anatomy for quite a few years now, and it doesn’t cease to stun me with its brilliance. Sure, the amount of misfortune that has happened to all of these characters is insane, but for some reason it’s still believable. Also, when they announced Sandra Oh was going to leave the show I didn’t think they’d be able to pull it off in a way that would do justice to her character, but they sooo did. Which left me with even more respect for the show!
I actually only really discovered Gilmore Girls this year. I’d watched bits and pieces of it on tv, but I’d never really watched the show. For some reason, unsurprisingly around the time of my midterms, I decided I wanted to watch all of Gilmore Girls, and I was so NOT disappointed. I watched all seven seasons this semester and I was so sad when there weren’t any more episodes left. A while ago I saw a post on Tumblr that said Gilmore Girls is the comfort food of TV shows, which is kind of spot on.
This Australian TV show is just so wonderful and great. When I first watched it I thought it was boring — how interesting can life on a farm be? But when I really got into it I absolutely loved it. The characters are portrayed so well, and it turns out that typical farm struggles can be quite interesting, really. McLeod’s Daughters always leaves me longing for life on an Australian farm…
The cases are often quite predictable and I often know right from the start “who did it”, but I do really love NCIS. I think what I love most is the relationships between the characters, and all the banter — especially from Tony. Plus, some of the cases, mostly the ones that are tied personally to one of the characters, are really interesting and intriguing. Oh, and then there’s the fact that Gibbs is just plain awesome.
Sex and the City
Sex and the City is just so much fun to watch. Whenever I watch one episode I immediately want to watch more. Plus, some of the situations and problems that come up in the show are so relatable, or just completely understandable.
How I Met Your Mother
Oh, HIMYM… I loved this show so much, but then season 9 and, in particular, the ending happened. I was NOT happy, I can tell you. Seriously, I was so disappointed, and considered for a moment not putting this show in my top ten. The thing is, season one through six were absolutely amazing, and seasons seven and eight were still very enjoyable as well. It’s an amazing show which dragged on a little bit too long, I think.
This show is so cool. It’s on a whole other level and the episodes are basically films. Benedict Cumberbatch is the Sherlock Holmes for me and each episode leaves me in absolute awe. If only we didn’t have to wait so long for the next season…
Another Sherlock Holmes one! I can imagine die hard Sherlock Holmes fans might not like this show because of all the differences to the original story, but I really enjoy it. I just try to see it as a completely seperate story, which works really well. Johnny Lee Miller is an amazing actor and he portrays this character so unbelievably well that I would keep watching just for that, even if I didn’t like the storylines.
I just love Nathan Fillion, you guys. He’s amazing as Richard Castle, and this show often has me laughing out loud, even though it’s a crime show. I can’t wait for the next season because I gots to know!
And that’s my top ten! I’m still not sure if I forgot any, but I figure I should just leave it at this. Do you watch any of these shows?

I love these shows; especially Elementary and Castle. I actually love the way that Elementary interprets and changes the main plotlines – the Moriarty twist was so clever. I love the romance between Castle and Beckett in Castle, although I slightly preferred their dynamic before they got together.
Yes, I loved the Moriarty twist as well! It’s a very clever show 🙂 I’m not really sure if I prefer Beckett and Castle before or after their romance. I really like them as a couple, and I’m glad they didn’t make them break up or anything. You often see that when a couple finally gets together in a show, they get much less interesting, but I don’t think that’s the case with these two 🙂
Crazy. My first 5 favourites are the same as yours! I was quite amused to see what a great taste you have in tv shows!!!
Well, they are amazing tv shows, so what’s not to love! 🙂
sorry wasn’t meant to be anon.
I’m a teacher so I’ve been catching up on a BUNCH of Sex and the City this summer. I forgot how much I was Team Aiden until I was watching huge amounts of it. I also love Friends and Gilmore Girls. Somewhere in this blogging world there’s a list of Rory’s books that people read as a challenge. I would want to do that except I’m not really a British classics kind of girl and she totally was.
Oh, I’m definitely team Aiden! He was so great…
I’ve looked at that list of books as well, but it’s quite daunting! Wow, that girl read a lot 😛
