If you’ve been a follower of my blog for a while, you know that I like to mix things up from time to time and talk about things that aren’t books…
Today I’m going to be talking about my favourite TV shows! A post I can’t believe I haven’t written yet. I love TV series’, it’s something I definitely watch more of rather than movies. To note, some of these sadly are not on the air anymore.
A show I was extremely late on starting and involved a whole lot of binge-watching (no regrets). I’ve now re-watched this show at least 5 times. The show follows interns at Seattle Grace Hospital as they start their medical careers and try to maintain personal lives. A fast-paced show with added humour, but don’t let the comedic lines throw you off. This show will hit you in the feels like no other, the plot takes so many interesting and dramatic twists & turns. NO ONE IS SAFE ON THIS SHOW. The writing is 10/10 and over the years the writing has including so many important topics. As well as this there are LGBT main characters (<3) This is so much more than just a medical show, I always recommend this program to everybody, I truly think its one of the best out there at the moment.
Another show that I’ve re-watched countless times. A show about bestselling fictional novelist Richard Castle, as he follows NYPD detective Katherine Beckett, to gain inspiration for his novels, he helps her and the team crack some of their toughest cases. This show is full of witty humour and has some of my favourite one-liners of all time. You can’t help but connect to these characters, the dynamic of the team and the friendships that develop are the best. I have to say that the earlier seasons are better than the latter, I still stick to the fact that I would have watched a spin-off with Ryan & Esposito.
Like Greys, this show took A LOT of binge watching. So many seasons! But completely worth it. This doesn’t happen often, but this show actually starts getting really good at around the end of season 3/season 4 in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong the first 3 seasons are not bad or anything! I also found that the cases got more gruesome/messed up as the seasons went on. This is an incredibly fast-paced program, following the fictional BAU (Behavioural Analysis Unit). Unlike other shows, I’ve watched in this genre, in terms of the investigative plot of each of the crimes, it’s about profiling an ‘unsub’ (the killer) instead of the crime itself. The BAU united features smart, well fleshed out characters, all having their special strengths to add to the team. In shows, I often have one character that I don’t like or feel I don’t connect with as much as the others, but with these, they are literally all PRECIOUS. As a book lover, I do have to mention Spencer Reid though, cause he just gets it.
