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.
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 😍😍😍
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 💕💕💕 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?
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.
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 😀😀😀😀
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… 😢😢😢
