My Favorite TV Shows

I am so excited to join up with Sarah Emily Blogs and Girl Talk Blog today for their 52 Week Blogger Challenge. Make sure to stop by and wish Sarah congratulations on getting married this weekend!

I'm not really a huge TV watcher. I used to be, but we decided to live without cable a few years ago, and have never looked back. I still watch lots of shows, but they are all on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and YouTube. Here's a look at some of my favorites.

How I Met Your Mother – This show was introduced to me by a friend, because he thought that Dave and I act a little bit like Lilly and Marshall. I can see it a little bit. I binge watched this series from beginning to end

Downton Abbey – I am such a sucker for period dramas. I have laughed and cried with these characters. We recently had a minor hiccup with our Netflix DVD subscription, but now we are back on track so that I can finish the series!

Friends – I have to be honest… I just started watching this in sequence. I remember it being on TV when I was growing up, but never really paid attention. But it is hilarious! I’m getting excited for the re-boot.

Nurse Jackie – This was recommended to me from Netflix. At first, I thought it would be light, but it is NOT. Jackie is a flawed character, which I think makes her relatable. We may not all be ER nurses, or have a drug addiction, but the storyline and characters seem like real life.

The Flash – I am seriously a big nerd. Dave and I started watching this together, and I watched ahead a little bit. This show is a little hokey, but I love superhero shows. I really liked that this series shows the Flash’s origins.

Gotham – Another awesome superhero show. The world created in this series is very full and diverse. I also love how you watch a young Bruce Wayne figure himself out before he becomes Batman. I’ve only watched the 1st season of this, but I can’t wait to catch up.

Law and Order – How could this not be on my favorites list. When I was in high school, I used to watch Law and Order SVU every day after school. The detectives are great, and so are the plot lines. I have to admit, that sometimes the crimes seem a little too realistic. Creepy.

Sherlock – I think Benedict Cumberbatch is amazing in this role. I just started watching season 3, and was reminded of why I like it so much. The combination of drama, science and crime is perfect. This makes me want to read some of the original Sherlock Holmes books.

The Borgias – Again, an awesome period piece. This is not for the faint of heart, as there is a lot of violence and sex. I’ve read a couple things about the Borgias, and poisoning and stuff like that, so this is a show that I like to watch. It is pretty heavy, so I don’t binge it.

The Tudors – I LOVED this show. When I was in college, I was obsessed with Henry VIII and his wives. I read and watched a ton of stuff about him. When this series came out, I could not stop. I might go back and watch again, because I love Natalie Dormer, and she is great as Anne Boleyn.

Game of Thrones – Since we watch this through Netflix DVDs, and there are only 2 episodes per DVD, I haven’t been able to binge this. I loved the books, and love how the TV show brings the characters and places to life. I know I’m not alone in this, but my favorite characters are Arya and Tyrion.

What TV shows are your favorite? I'd love some recommendations!
