The Television Tag

Thank you so much Tanvi @ A Reader to Whatever End for tagging me for this. She clearly knows me very well because this tag is totally perfect for me – I’m a huge TV buff, I have grown up watching lots of soaps and dramas on television and binge watching is my favorite activity other than reading books. Just go ahead and checkout Tanvi’s blog for more amazing book reviews and other wonderful posts.

I have tried but there is going to be a lot of repetition in my answers below, because I’m very picky and have very few favorite shows and I love binge watching them. So, let’s get started.


Favorite shows?

The West Wing is my most favorite of this lifetime and I don’t think that will ever change. It has some of the best characters on television I have ever seen.

Police procedurals are a particular favorite of mine and I enjoy a lot of such shows but NCIS will always be a favorite because I adore Mark Harmon and it’s just a lot of fun.

I think everyone has a favorite Shonda Rhimes show and I just happen to have two – Scandal and Private Practice. And it’s all thanks to the a great cast of characters but also the amazing portrayal of strong women by Kerry Washington and Kate Walsh.

As you have guessed by my most favorite show, I love political stuff and the one current show that is thoughtful about politics and has amazing characters is Madam Secretary.

Won’t you all agree that vampires, werewolves and witches are a lot of fun..??? It’s just so much entertainment and drama. And The Vampire Diaries was full of love and drama and fun and also lots of good looking people 😍😍😍

Favorite genre?

Political Dramas and Police Procedurals…. definitely. I also love Fantasy as a genre but I’m very picky about what I will watch.

Least favorite show?

I don’t think I have any because if I don’t like something, I probably stopped watching it pretty early and completely forgot about it.

Most rewatched show/favorite show to binge-watch?

I think I’ll be mentioning these two shows a lot because I love them and I have lost count how many times I’ve binge watched them. I can probably recite a lot of dialogue verbatim too… especially from The West Wing.

Do you prefer watching week-by-week or binge-watching?

I used to love watching week-by-week but I don’t have that much patience anymore. Binge watching is just very convenient and I love it.

Favorite TV characters?

There’s probably just too many to list but let me think of a few:

The West Wing: President Bartlet, CJ Cregg, Sam Seaborn

Scandal: Olivia Pope

The Vampire Diaries/The Originals: Damon Salvatore, Elijah Mikaelson

Private Practice: Dr. Addison Montgomery

NCIS: Leroy Jethro Gibbs, Ziva David

Shadowhunters: Magnus Bane

Game of Thrones: The Stark Family, Danaerys Targaryen

Favorite TV ships?

There are probably many more I have liked over the years but these three came to mind first.

Damon and Elena will always be a favorite. I just love them too much.

Jon and Dany are new and obviously it’s a weird (maybe taboo) relationship, but they make for a great power couple and look gorgeous together.

Malec are the best πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• Their chemistry on screen is really explosive while also being sweet and adorable.

Show you could never get into?

I know these are all very very popular shows…. so please don’t come for me guys !!!!!! I probably watched a couple of episodes of each of these and never felt like continuing. They just weren’t for me.

Show you fell out of love with?

img_0218

I actually watched Pretty Little Liars for four seasons with a lot of patience but just couldn’t go on anymore.

I think only watched one season of Arrow and it wasn’t that interesting to continue.

I probably lost interest in Grey’s Anatomy a long time ago but kept watching it till almost 2016 because of the comfort of watching familiar characters. Now, I just don’t care what happens to them.

I only watched a few episodes of Timeless and found it a lot of fun but I don’t know why I stopped watching.

The Blacklist was a favorite since the first episode and James Spader is just such an awesome actor. But after four seasons, I just couldn’t figure out where it was going and everything felt pointless.

The first season of The Blindspot was wonderful and so unique, but it lost it’s charm for me after that and I stopped watching.

Canceled too soon?

White Collar could have gone on for years and I would have kept watching because Matt Bomer is such a looker and I can just keep staring at the tv 😍😍😍 I was pretty upset when it ended but it really was such fun to watch.

There’s just 9 more episodes to go and Shadowhunters will be over 😭😭😭😭😭 I wish it could go on for so many more seasons.

Guilty pleasure show?

The West Wing is my balm for anything. I feel good or bad or sad, I can just watch it and it’ll take my worries away. NCIS is kinda the same too.

Shadowhunters is absolute eye candy and I have been known to watch it many many times when I need some mood uplifting.

I started watching Game of Thrones only before Season 6 came out but I always kinda knew what was happening. And now it’s just fun to go back and rewatch some of my favorite episodes.

Currently watching?

So, yes… I’m still watching NCIS every week. It’s the 16th season and I will watch it till Mark Harmon is leading it.

FBI is a new CBS show this year and I think it has been interesting so far.

The 14th season of Criminal Minds just ended and I just have a couple of episodes to catch up on.

Queer Eye is on the list because the new season premiers just 3 days from now and I can’t wait πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

I haven’t been able to keep updated with season 5 of Madam Secretary, but I will catch up soon.

As I mentioned before, it’s the last 9 episodes to go for Shadowhunters and I’m really cherishing these final moments… 😒😒😒

  1. NCIS is one of my favorite shows as well. I’m pretty sure I’ve never watched past season 4 of The Vampire Diaries but I was enjoying it when I was watching it. I’ve watched every episode of both Grey’s Anatomy and Supernatural and I’ve rewatched both of those several times as well.

    1. I broke up with Vampire Diaries but always went back to it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ and NCIS will always be a favorite!!!!
      I guess Supernatural was too gruesome for me.. not my genre..

      1. I think the last season I watched was season 4. I went back and tried again and I still couldn’t get past season 4. I think it probably has to do with the fact that I wanted Elena to be with Stefan and not Damon. Yeah it does get a little gory sometimes luckily that doesn’t bother me because I love that show.

        1. Haha I know that can be a deal breaker… but I love Damon and Elena, so I guess that’s why I went back 😊😊😊
          Gory stuff bothers me sometimes but luckily not in this show…

    1. Shadowhunters is such fun !!!! And I hate shows like House of Cards too.. no good ppl… That’s one reason I like West Wing the most… I don’t think the show has any bad character… it’s just a great group of ppl working for the President… 😊😊

  2. Super yaayyy for NCIS!! When I saw NCIS in your post preview, I immediately clicked it! I love watching police procedurals and NCIS was the most fun I’ve watched! I loved the characters and how they have this vibe and humor that wouldn’t get you bored. My fave character was Kate but I’ve grown to love Ziva. I used to have this mini NCIS club with my grade school classmates and we get to pick which characters we’d love. I’ve watched it numerous times and I used to memorize every episode and season and recite my favorite lines!

    Also yaayy for Criminal Minds! My favorite character was Elle. Have you noticed that my favorites are the first to die/quit? LMAO. I think I stopped watching after the 6th season? I think that’s when things got a little busy for me but I’ll still be looking forward to watch the other seasons.

    AND GOT!! I recently just started watching Game of Thrones and I’m still on season 3. I’ll be catching up for the final season. DAENERYS IS MY GIRL. I loved her and how bad-ass she was. All hail the mother of dragons!

    And I’m so sorry you didn’t like F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and Arrow. What I enjoyed in friends was how easy and chill the show was and their humor always got me laughing. It’s my go-to show whenever I need some cheering up. And I agree that Arrow’s a little hard to like sometimes. The first season was okay for me but not that exciting. The next seasons proved to be more enjoyable and my fave installment on the Arrowverse is Legends on Tomorrow πŸ™‚

    1. Wow… it’s awesome to catch-up with fellow a NCIS fan 😊😊😊 I liked Kate too but Ziva will always be my favorite.. She’s probably one of my most favorite tv characters ever 😍😍

      Criminal Minds is so interesting right… I like everyone but maybe Prentiss the most…

      I hope you are enjoying GOT… Dany is just so amazing.. I can’t wait for the final season πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

      I think I just don’t enjoy sitcoms.. that’s probably the only reason why Friends wasn’t for me… but I’m glad it always cheers you up!!! I might decide to checkout Arrow again if I feel bored 😜😜

      Looks like you have a lot to talk about TV too…!!! Why don’t you try this tag if you are interested… I would love to know more about your favorites 😊😊😊

      1. Stopped watching NCIS in Season 9, I think? And when I’ve heard that Ziva left on the later seasons, I was devastated.

        And oh! I love Dany so much OH MY GOD. And I love Margaery’s smile.

        Will definitely do this tag too someday! πŸ™‚

        1. Ohh I still watch NCIS but it’s not the same without Ziva…
          Margaery is so beautiful 😍 Dany’s smile would be pretty too… but her character hardly has a lighter side on the show… !!! April can’t come soon enough… I’m already dying to know how it all ends… πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

    1. I guess I was watching too many shows at the time and couldn’t keep track of Arrow 😜😜😜 but White Collar is special… such a smart and delightful show !!!

      1. Understandable! I’ve been consistently watching Arrow since it premiered and I still get confused with the storylines. I love that White Collar had a good finale. Most shows kind of fumble the last episode. But I really liked it. Could have gone on longer :/

  3. Awww, thanks, Sahi! I was surprised to see you hadn’t done this one yet and I love talking TV shows with you so I knew I had to tag you. ☺️

    Okay, I see 3 of the shows you couldn’t get into are actually my absolute favorites (Friends, Supernatural and Outlander). I couldn’t get into Stranger Things either – it creeped me out bad. πŸ™ˆ I also stopped watching Blindspots about 10 episodes in..it was going so well and then just…not.

    Agree with you about Shadowhunters, Malec, TVD, Damon (and Delena), White Collar – I love these shows and ships and wish there were more seasons.

    I’m liking FBI too though I’ve only seen 2-3 episodes till now. And I will be checking out Scandal and Madam Secretary soon. ☺️
