Oh for Pete's sake, how am I supposed to narrow it down to ONE show.
I'm a TV junkie -- J U N K I E ! !
Here's a photo montage of all my absolute favorites:
I watched this entire series in less than three weeks (minus the last four episodes I had to wait on like everyone else.) The characters, plot and imagery make this one of the most unique productions ever and possibly the only series re-boot that has lived up to its promises. It managed to tell a well rounded story and leave just enough unanswered questions to leave people talking.
Without a doubt my favorite current show. They are doing things with this show astound me and inspire me to be a better writer. Usually when I watch a TV program, I see the ending a mile away. But on Fringe, the story is so deep and provocative, I never know where it is going next. But even if it wasn't so mentally stimulating -- Walter!!
When it comes to characters, Torchwood has the best. From the immortal narcissism of Captain Jack Harkness to the Welsh- bitch of Gwen Cooper, this show just oozes sex appeal and alien apocalypse. The evolution of polar opposites Owen and Tosh as they speed head on into common ground and destiny. And then there's all the boy-on-boy smooching (move over Ianto - I'm talking about James Marsters.) The only character flaw - Rhys - although they've tried hard to incorporate him into the fray, I still wish he'd just die already.
I love Arthurian legend, so much so my current work-in-progress is based off the concept. But this adaptation is insanely unique and original. I love that Merlin is the same age as Arthur. I love the Gwendolyn is the handmaiden of Morgana. I love that Uther is still alive (and played by Anthony Head). Throw in a talking dragon and you have a whimsical foray into a timeless mythology.
Yes, I'm a Gleek. How could I not be. It combines my favorite things: adults playing teenagers and random song and dance. Cleverly written, fabulously casted and super-fun to watch, I always look forward to a new episode. I have always felt that we'd all be a lot happier if we all break into choreographed sing-offs.
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST:
I don't pretend that House of Anubis is high-end entertainment, but it is a fun show that has given my daughter and I something to share. Every night we sit and watch it together, discussing what will happen next, trying to solve the mystery. Hanging out with my kids is AWESOME!
Bones, House, Smallville, Supernatural
