Today I thought I would share with you some of my favourite TV Shows that I would 100% recommend Binge watching with my 5 TV Shows to Binge Watch.
I’ve never done a post like this before but I have been wanting to for a while so I thought I would share it.
Most of these TV Shows you can watch on Netflix in the UK, but Glee you cannot.
Netflix is my saviour when watching TV shows as most of the TV shows I watch are shown on there and most of them aren’t shown on UK TV so this is the only place I can watch them.
*NO SPOILERS about any of these shows*
Glee is my all time favourite TV show!
This is the show that I will always watch if I am feeling down or sad and am in the need of something happy and fun to cheer me up – it is definitely a feel good programme.
Glee is about a group of ambitious misfits who try to escape the harsh realities of high school by joining a glee club, where they find strength, acceptance and, ultimately, their voice, while working to pursue dreams of their own. It follows their lives through high school and beyond with the struggles of relationships, sexuality, high school and the future.
One of my favourite parts of this show is the musical numbers that they perform; in Glee they are done in such a way that they aren’t too cheesy and make more sense as they take place in a choir room format rather than them just breaking out into song randomly like most musicals.
Favourite Female character: Brittney S Pierce played by Heather Morris
Favourite Male character: Blaine Anderson played by Darren Criss
I love this TV show so much!!
If I’m 100% honest it isn’t the best made TV show but I love the characters so much that I don’t mind at all.
This TV show is based on The Mortal Instruments Books by Cassandra Clare that are some of the most amazing books I have ever read – Cassie is such an amazing writer.
As I read the books before watching the TV show, I already had an emotional connection with the characters so I feel like I would like the show no matter what it was like.
Shadowhunters follows Clary Fray, who is a normal teenager living in Brooklyn with her mother. One day, she discovers that she is descended from a line of Shadowhunters; humans born with angelic blood that fight to protect our world from demons. After her mother is kidnapped, Clary must team up with three Shadowhunters: Jace, Alec and Isabelle and her best friend Simon on a quest to find her mother and recover her past.
As I said, this TV show is based on the Mortal Instruments books, however, the TV show doesn’t follow the exact storyline of the books which I actually quite like because nothing is predictable and too boring. Obviously the main plot points are the same and the important things that happen to the characters but the storyline in between that is different. I feel like this is especially good for people like me who have read the books and know what happens.
Favourite Female character: Isabelle Lightwood played by Emeraude Tobia
Favourite Male character: Alec Lightwood played by Matthew Daddario 😍
(also Magnus Bane played by Harry Shum Jr)
Once Upon A Time
As soon as I heard about this programme I knew it was something I was going to love.
The show takes place in the fictional seaside town of Storybrooke, Maine, whose residents are characters from various fairy tales transported to the “real world” town and robbed of their real memories by a powerful curse. It follows the heroine Emma Swan as she protects the town and its inhabitants from various curses and villains, both in Storybooke and other realms.
I love the idea of how they took traditional fairy tale characters that everyone loves and put them in the real world and changed some of their stories. You see lots of different sides to the characters you love and follow them on journeys you would never have seen before.
The show is now on its 6th season which is pretty impressive, but I do think that it is kind of losing it’s spark – I still love all of the characters and their relationships but I feel like they are running out of ideas, which is sad. Season 1-3 are definitely my favourites.
Favourite Female character: Emma Swan played by Jennifer Morrison
Favourite Male character: Killian Jones aka Captain Hook played by Colin O’Donoghue
This TV show isn’t anything new and I’m sure pretty much everyone has heard of it but I heard about it for years and only got round to watching it last year.
I don’t know why I hadn’t watched it sooner because it is so good and so addictive.
I think I knew who Gossip Girl was before I started watching it because I heard someone talking about it, I wasn’t 100% sure because I had forgotten but it was in the back of my mind.
Gossip Girl, a ruthless and mysterious blogger reveals secrets about teens in upper east side New York. With roller coaster romances and piles of secrets hiding away for Gossip Girl to find, this show is sure to bring the upper east side and its drama into our lives.
Gossip Girl is a really easy to watch TV show, there is nothing that is too hard to understand and it has a really good plot.
It shows you what it might be like to live and grow up on the Upper East Side of New York.
I think one of the reasons I love this TV show is because it is set in New York and New York is my favourite city in the world.
Favourite Female character: Serena Van Der Woodsen played by Blake Lively
Favourite Male character: Nate Archibald played by Chase Crawford
This is a very new TV show that started at the beginning of 2017 – there aren’t that many episodes at the moment but I am really enjoying it so far.
This show is based on the Archie comics that have been around for 75 years – I never read these comics and never knew anything about the show before I started watching it but I don’t feel like you need to know a lot about it before you start watching it.
Riverdale is a subversive take on Archie and his friends, exploring small town life, the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade.
When this TV show first came out and heard about it I was a bit scepticle about watching it because I had heard it was really scary and I’m not a big fan of anything remotely scary. However, I decided to give it a try after so many people told me I would like it and found out it really isn’t scary at all. It is a bit creepy and dark as it follows a murder mystery but it isn’t terrifying at all and I am so glad I started watching it.
Favourite Female character: Betty Cooper played by Lili Reinhart
Favourite Male character: Jughead Jones played by Cole Sprouse
I would highly reccomend watching all of these TV shows if you are looking for a new TV show to watch.
I hope you liked this post, let me know if you would like to see more posts like this – I was thinking about doing separate posts on my current favourites that are still being aired on TV such as Shadowhunters and Riverdale, do let me know if that is something that you would like to read.
If you are a fan of any of these TV shows let me know!
