Today's post I thought I would let you in on some of my favourite TV-shows. I'm not a massive watcher of the television in all honesty but I do have my favourite programmes which I love to stay caught up with. Although I tend to watch a lot of them on the laptop. Does that count as TV?!
1. Pretty Little Liars -
This programme really isn't what you would expect, it definitely wasn't what I was expecting put it that way! I thought it would be a bit of a bitchy, girly series, however it's completely different. The programme features 4 girls who are all best friends and are working together to investigate the murder of their former friend Allison Dilaurentis. They experience life and death situations, avoid their stalker and possible culprit titled 'A' and are determined to get to the bottom of their best friend's murdercase. The show is dark but has you completely on the edge of your seat, I was completely hooked after the first episode.
2. The Vampire Diaries -
This TV show has been a favourite for quite a few years. Some people say it's a rip-off of Twilight but I completely disagree. The show has a lot more complexity and narrative than Twilight ever had. The programme captures the story of the female protagonist Elena Gilbert who is an average high-school girl with friends and boyfriends until two vampire brothers, Damon and Stefan come into town in search of something. The two mistake Elena for their former love-triangle contributer Catherine, who is Elena's doppelganger. The show goes deep into Elena's feelings for the two brothers and the love triangle between them and takes you on the journey as Elena, the brothers and soon after, her friends, overcome visits from original vampires and evil spirits.
3. Two and a Half Men -
First of all, to be clear, I prefer Two and a Half Men with Charlie Sheen in. I do like Ashton Kutcher in the newer series, however you can't beat Charlie Harper! The show is a comedy, as Alan is kicked out of his house after a divorce with his former wife, Judith, he has nowhere else to go other than his brother's house, home of Charlie. He and his son Jake live there, with the supposed intention of eventually buying a place of their own, however with financial issues on Alan's behalf, Charlie knows it won't just be a temporary arrangement. However, despite Charlie's ways, he likes having the two around and the banter between the three compiles an excellent comedy show.
4. The Big Bang Theory -
Now, who doesn't watch this? A very intelligent, hard-to-live-with physicist seeks a roommate early in the series, however they need to abide by his extremely OTT rulebook. He eventually finds Leonard, also a physicist, to share a room with. Despite Sheldon's irritating personality and ridiculous actions, the two become friends and Sheldon is forced to interact with others. As the series continues, a friend group is formed between Sheldon, Leonard, Raaj and Howard, with the addition of Leonard's love interest across the hall, Penny. This really is a laugh out loud show and I never miss an episode!
5. The Following -
If you are looking for a TV show with structure and an absolutely amazing plot, this is your one! Joe Caroll is both a writer and a teacher, and is fascinated by literacy but he is also slightly cookoo to say the least. He is obsessed with the notion of murder and therefore carries out several. Kevin Bacon, who plays police officer, Ryan Hardy, is out to get Joe and stop his disgraceful activities. However Joe is clever and proves difficult to deal with as due to his charismatic personality has formed himself a cult who are ultimately devoted to him and what they deem his 'wonderful doings'. The show explores the struggle to capture Joe and charge him for his murderous behaviour.
6. Waterloo Road -
This is an old favourite and I definitely prefer the original cast shown below. However, the show is still really good with the new actors nonetheless! You could class this programme as reality TV I would say as it ventures into lives of Seconardy School and Sixth Form students who attend Waterloo Road, whilst also embracing relationships between characters, bad behaviour, troublesome homes etc. I find the show to be a bit unrealistic at times as I highly doubt one school could have so many problems, but despite that, it makes a good show.
7. Whitney -
This programme portrays Whitney, as a fictionalized version of herself. She lives with her supportive boyfriend, Alex. The two characters decided early-on that they won't commit to marriage but despite this, Whitney does question how committed they are in their 3-year relationship. She believes she is starting to experience boredom with their relationship and worries what could happen next that might end their relationship. She uses unconventional methods to keep the romantic flames glowing with Alex, often seeking the help of her close friends.
8. Da Vinci's Demons -
This show explores the untold story of Da Vinci inventing the future at a time in history when thought and faith are controlled. However Da Vinci is determined to set knowledge free. Da Vinci is a man of great wisdom and intelligence and is originally undermined of his abilities. Although, leader of Florence, Lorenzo soon snaps up his capabilities, seeking war equipment. Da Vinci falls for Lorenzo's Mistress, Lucrezia, who is a spy for the opposing "team" of Rome. The series has just begun, therefore the story is left to be told...
Hopefully this was interesting to you and maybe you learned something about me.
