Top Ten Favorite TV Shows

It's been a really long time since I've participated in TTT hosted by The Broke and The Bookish but this is a topic I can easily participate in. 

Top Ten Favorite TV Shows

Before we begin, I should share that I love my DVR. If I have free time, I'm either reading a book or watching my DVR. I don't believe in live TV and I think commercials are a waste of time. If I'm going to watch TV, I'm going to do it efficiently. That being said, I have a lot of favorite shows I record so here we go (in no particular order)!

1. Scandal
Oh, I love me some Olivia Pope. I binge watched this show the week before my wedding during any down time I could grab (while doing a lovely puzzle) and I was hooked. The plots are scandalous and the characters are flawless (you know, other than all the rules they break and people they kill.) I'm hoping the next season lives up to it's predecessors. Can I get a shout out from fellow gladiators?

2. Nashville
I love the lead female characters in this show not to mention the fabulous country music. Even if you don't understand  like country music, I can guarentee you'll find one on here you can relate to. Some of my favorites are Fade Into You and Black Roses.

3. All of the Real Housewives and all of their spin off shows
I'm a trashy, reality TV junkie!!! And the housewives have my heart. The only one I never got into was Atlanta because I discovered it after a couple of seasons and didn't have all the history which annoyed me. But other than that, give me all things housewives!

4. Southern Charm
Really, Bravo can do no wrong in my eyes but this show was absolutely phenomenal!!! It's set in good ole Charleston, SC and let me tell you, it's a huuuuuge controversy down her and I absolutely love it! Everyone knows somebody on the show or knows somebody who knows somebody on the show. The South has been buzzing since this gem aired and I can't get enough! 

5. The Real World
I may be the only human alive who admits to watches this and I can't get enough. I also love the spin-off The Challenge but I'll just link these two together. This is one of those reality shows that still rings a little realistic because the situations are so ridiculous sometimes. It may be Hills-fake but I still love it. 

6. Orange is the New Black
I haven't read this book yet but it's on my TBR and I'm a little worried it won't compare to this hilarious/touching show. I didn't see this one coming, Netflix but thank you!

7. Keeping up with the Kardashians (how about that throw back pic?)
I told you I love trashy reality TV. Now, I'm not dumb enough to think any part of this is reality but I can't get enough of this crazy fam. That being said, I utterly despise Kim and Kayne and get easily annoyed with Kris. But I'm obsessed with Khloe, Kourtney, Lord Disick, and Rob. They should have a show of just them because they are freaking hilarious together. Love it. Not ashamed. 

Now for some of my favorites that are no longer on TV and break my heart

8.Veronica Mars
Obsessed!!! I'm so sad this show fell off at the end and is no longer on but my life was complete with the movie. I'm in love with Logan Echols (can't explain it, can't even try) and I'm so glad they came back to wrap up him and Veronica's story line. Thanks, Kickstarter!

9. The O.C. 
This was probably the first show that I ever watched religiously. If I missed an episode because my siblings wouldn't change the channel I had a major meltdown. Luckily, in college, watching this show was a weekly event prior to going out so I didn't have to worry about siblings with sub par taste. Love Ryan and Seth!

10. Laguna Beach (The Real O.C.)
This is where my love of reality TV started. What teenage girl didn't want to be friends with LC (and secretly frenemies with Kristen)? And the meta-episode where they were watching The O.C.!??!?! Oh, I couldn't get enough!

There are all my guilty pleasures for all of my readers to see. Are you judging really hard right now? Any you would like to share with me or reminisce on?

    1. Haha, I knew someone else would appreciate it! For the rest of my life I will remember how Kristen pronounced Stephen: Ste-PHENNNNN! (in a high pitched whiny voice that only she can nail.) Quality TV right there!
