Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish, and is a book blogging feature where every week there is a different ‘top ten’ list of books to make.
This week’s list is another non-book one and is instead top ten favorite TV Shows! I didn’t quite make ten here, but I only wanted to include my very favorite shows. And, as usual, I am listing these in no particular order. Plus, all of the shows included in this list are can be streamed on Netflix or are available online totally legally.
#1 – Eureka Now, I already said that this list is in no particular order, but this show is in the #1 spot for a reason. And that reason is that this is a show that more people should watch. It’s essentially a comedy/drama where almost all the main characters are brilliant scientist and it’s, well, brilliant.
#2 – Warehouse 13 This show had it’s fifth and final season this year, and I am very, very sad about that. But it does have five amazing seasons of great adventures and great characters and surprising overlying plots. So you should really go watch and appreciate what there is of this show. (Even though it got very rudely cancelled)
#3 – Supernatural To be entirely honest, there are times where I wonder why I like this show and chose to watch it. But when it has a good episode they are usually very fast paced and exciting, so there’s that. I also thought I’d mention that this is a show that has kind of gotten less horror-movie-ish and scary as it has gone on. There’s a lot more plot in season 6 than there is in season 1. But it’s also a show with a lot of episodes- and it’s still being made. Just so you know what you might be getting yourself into.
#4 – Doctor Who I have a feeling that this is a show that is going to be on a lot a of people’s lists, so I recommend hearing about it from someone better.
#5 – Generator Rex I will admit that while this is a finished (*ahem* cancelled) series, I have yet to actually finish watching it. I started it a while ago, but, things happen. Anyways, this is a show that I never thought I’d love as much as I do. It’s a sci-fi with great (very endearing) characters, well choreographed (awesome) fight scenes, a very engaging plot-line and very interesting world-building. Plus, it’s comic relief is very well done.
#6 – Puella Magi Madoka Magica This is by far my favorite of all anime I’ve watched. It starts off rather slowly, but everything ends up coming together in the main plot and it is amazing. It’s also technically a magical girl type anime, but it’s very dark. I recommend not watching it with younger children, no matter how happy Netflix’s cover art for it looks.
#7 – RWBY RWBY is slightly different from the rest of these in that it is a webseries, and each episode is around 5 to 15 minutes long. The whole of season Volume 1 is just a bit over an hour. Plus, Volume 2 comes out in 9 days and the entirety of the show can be watched on it’s company’s website here. It’s sort of a comedy set in a fantasy universe, but there are plot threads that promise to be pretty amazing. It also has awesome music.
#8 – Sword Art Online The fact that I love the books Insignia and Epic kind of shows that I love full immersion type video games in fiction. I probably would never use one in real life because of all the mishap they’ve caused in stories, but, sacrifices must be made. And this anime is a great kind of story like the ones I’ve mentioned. (The second half of the first season has some kind of strange parts though…)
