Because it’s this time of the year where the sky stays the same grey-ish color for maximum 4 hours and then it just gets dark again and not a lot can motivate you to leave the house (except for work or school of course) I got inspired by Masha Sedgwick and decided to give you a list of my favourite TV shows at the moment – and ever.
#1 The OC
Okay, this one’s an all time favorite and every time, when the first christmas lights are up and the first cookies are baked I start watching it all over again. And every time I cry, laugh and suffer with Ryan, Marisa, Seth and Summer again. It’s just too good. And I don’t know who chose the music for it, but that person’s my hero.
#2 Being Mary Jane
I don’t know if it’s the fact that I am studying journalism at the moment, but Gabrielle Union’s character as news anchor for a big american TV company just awoke my interest right away. She’s just trying to find her way in the world with troubles at home, finding someone to love and a lot of stress at work. It just makes you, as a woman, feel like you are not alone and that no bump should make you question life. And there’s definitely some eyecandy for us girls throughout the show!
Unfortunately the show is just on its third season in the US but waiting for the new episode to come out is definitely always worth it!
#3 How to get away with murder
Another quite new show, which just got me right at the first second. The show won countable awards already, especially Viola Davis in her role as Annalise Keating, the ruthless defense attorney. The show is a good mixture of Drama, Love, Sex and Crime which just makes you wish you would have discovered it later so you could just watch multiple episodes in a row. Unfortunately, the show is still on its second season in the US.
#4 Modern Family
I don’t know where to start with this one. It is just so simple and yet so funny and I sometimes wish I could just move in with the Pritchetts – and I wouldn’t even care which part of the family would take me in.
#5 Gilmore Girls
And one last one for the girls again. So many people don’t get the hype around the two Lorelai Gilmore’s (or also Lorelai and Rory Gilmore) and to be honest, I can’t really explain it either but I guess you either love it or you hate it. And I definitely do love it. I can just let myself go in their somehow boring but still entertaining life in the little town of Stars Hollow. And the best thing about it – there will be a new season on Netflix soon! BEST NEWS EVER
Okay. So I could go on and on because I am a real “Serienjunkie” (it means totally addicted to TV shows in german btw. But this wouldn’t express my deep addiction enough. So Serienjunkie is the best word, trust me.) but I think five are enough for now. You will need some time to get all of those shows before I feed you some more 🙂
