Top 10 Tuesday – Link up with the Broke and the Bookish


July 15: Top Ten Favourite TV Shows!

This week’s top 10 is looking at different types of stories. I’ve chosen to focus on my top 10 TV shows:

  1. Friday Night Lights (I feel like a DUH is required after this). The greatest show ever, full of basically everything you could want in…anything really. Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
  2. Parks and Recreation. Amy Poehler. Chris Pratt. Aziz Ansari. Nick Offerman. Retta. So many reasons to watch this show! One of the best things about Parks and Rec is how sweet and optimistic it is. It makes you want to work hard, give your all and be your own Leslie Knope.
  3. Gilmore Girls. You guys, I love this show. I started watching when I was a student and fell in love. I still want to be Lorelai Gilmore and I’m still thankful that shy, book-reading Rory got to exist on my TV.
  4. 30 Rock. Tiny Fey – is there much more reason needed? I love how off-beat and damn silly 30 Rock is. It’s willingness to mock anything and everything about the world of entertainment is glorious.
  5. The US Office. As a Brit, this feels like a slight betrayal, like I should prefer the original UK series. But I find The Office (UK) just a wee bit too dark, where the US Office has just the right amount of sweetness to temper the hideousness (see: Jim and Pam).
  6. The Good Wife. I was recently introduced to this show by a friend and man, am I grateful. Smart, interesting and challenging, it’s TV for grown ups and it’s never boring or simple.
  7. Greek. The subject of this week’s #tbt, Greek is a light-hearted, fun take on University life and the perfect pick me up on a grey day.
  8. Pretty Little Liars. June’s Pop Arts Recommendation, PLL is full of twists and turns and the most bonkers TV I’ve ever seen.
  9. The Walking Dead. I never expected to love this show as much as I do, but I could literally talk about it for hours (and have, too). Unique premise that allows for really interesting character study, The Walking Dead is exciting and intelligent.
  10. Spaced. Spaced is a daft, lovely, sweet-natured UK comedy that is endearingly silly and self-referencing. It features one of my favourite comedy actresses of all time, Jessica Hynes and never ever fails to make me laugh.
