Posted April 23, 2016 / Personal / Information / Etc. / 32 Comments

to be watchedObviously we all have our TBR lists and even posts each month, but I wanted to try to sit here and think of all the TV shows I want to watch. I saw Katrina’s post the other day about the shows she wishes she had more time to watch, and it inspired me a little bit. Maybe you guys can help me prioritize some of these shows! I’ll tell you a bit about shows I’ve loved or am currently watching, and you can make some recommendations (by voting in the poll for your favorites!).

Shows I’m currently watching or finished:

90210 • Angie Tribeca • Arrested Development • Breaking Bad • Broad City
Brooklyn Nine-Nine • Brothers and Sisters • Chasing Life • Community • Devious Maids
Desperate Housewives • Faking It • Friday Night Lights • Friends • Fresh off the Boat
Gossip Girl • Heroes • How I Met Your Mother • Humans • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Marvel’s Agent Carter • Marvel’s Daredevil • Marvel’s Jessica Jones • Master of None
Modern Family • The OC • Orange is the New Black • Parks and Recreation
Pretty Little Liars • Sex and the City • Workaholics • Younger

Shows I’m looking to start or binge:

Aside from finishing a few of the shows above (Friday Night Lights, Orange is the New Black, Daredevil, etc.), I want to binge something else. Some of these shows are finished, which is nice, but others are still happening on TV.

Why I want to watch: bookish main character, it’s coming back on Netflix, located in Connecticut!

Why I want to watch: everyone seems to love this show, mystery/crimes, I own some on DVD already

Why I want to watch: I own a lot of the DVDs for some reason, lots of people loved it

Why I want to watch: on Netflix, lots of seasons, this show will probably break me right?

Why I want to watch: lesser-known show some people really liked, Rachel Bilson

Why I want to watch: seems like a cross between Modern Family and Brothers & Sisters!

Why I want to watch: Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere might be reason enough

Why I want to watch: a little out of my TV comfort zone but could be a really good thing

Why I want to watch:
 watched an episode and liked it (but Chris didn’t), lots of seasons, hot men

Help me decide! Be a pal and vote below 🙂

  1. Oh this is my jam! Live binge watching shows. I highly recommend Gilmore Girls, Parenthood and Grey’s. LOVE them. I also suggest Catastrophe and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Enjoy whatever you pick!!

  2. A definite yes to Veronica Mars and Supernatural! This also reminds me I need to catch up on Supernatural. And Gilmore Girls, because although I loved it, I never finished watching! Also, I haven’t seen it but my brother started Orphan Black yesterday and he’s already in love with it.

  3. I liked Friday Night Lights a lot! I never finished watching Gilmore Girls, Grey’s Anatomy or Hart of Dixie, though I intend to. . . sometime. I also want to watch 90210 and The O.C. (I own the first season of the latter).

    I want to watch a lot of the shows on your list. Hmm, I’d possibly recommend the original Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place, though I haven’t seen either, but with some of your suggestions I think they may work for you.

    I liked The Nine Lives of Chloe King and Jane By Design, both which were cancelled by ABC Family. Sigh.

    Okay, anyway, I voted! For Veronica Mars of course, that show is good stuff.

    • Haha I know how that goes- I have a lot of shows in progress I need to finish!

      I LOVED 90210 – so much drama! The OC is great overall but I have to finish the final season still. It just wasn’t as good.

      Thanks for the recs and voting!

    Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls are both a must-watch and two of my favourites. Hart of Dixie I LOVE and it’s the best feel good show. Parenthood is such an amazing show and I love the family dynamics. You’ve got a lot of amazing shows to binge! In a way, I wish I could go back and rediscover these for myself. I hope you love them as much as I do. Greys is also a great show. The first few seasons are definitely its strongest, but I still like watching.

  5. I had a love-hate relationship with Gilmore Girls. There were some elements I adored, but others that drove me nuts. Overall though, it’s a must-watch show definitely. OMG Parenthood! I binge-watched the show a couple of months ago and I’m so glad I did. It’s a nice blend of funny and emotional, so I hope you love it as much as I loved it.
    I need to start Nashville and Orphan Black myself. I’ve heard good things! 🙂
    Hope you find some great shows to watch! 🙂

  6. I started Veronica Mars and really liked it, but OMG you need to watch Supernatural! That show is super awesome, my husband and I watch it and it’s just so good.

  7. SUPERNATURAL. DEFINITELY SUPERNATURAL. It’s just so amazing and addictive really! And the earlier season were creepiest and the cast just get hotter and hotter each season. Brooklyn nine-nine is just soo funny! You should try Criminal Minds. It has much darker theme and creepier bad guys, mostly psycopaths and mass murderer, but I really enjoyed watching it. And if you love shows that has lots of drama (GG and PLL) you should try Empire. It’s more mature but it has so much drama and it’s hilarious and it has awesome music!

    • Haha yay! I’m getting a lot of this answer 😉

      I’ve seen a few episodes of Criminals Minds and it’s definitely creepy! I’m usually not big on crime-y shows like that or CSI, but I did enjoy the eps I’ve seen! Maybe I’ll try a few from the beginning and see how I fare 🙂

      I’ve heard great things about Empire too! Thanks!

  8. I’ve watched Supernatural since the beginning, and it’s definitely a good show! Season 1-5 will always be the best, but if you fall in love with the characters the rest is still worth it too. My number one recommendation out of the ones on your list is Orphan Black though. It’s sooooo good. Gilmore Girls, Veronica Mars, and Grey’s Anatomy are all great too. Grey’s Anatomy will break your heart into a million pieces ten times each season.

  9. Definitely check out Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD!
    From your list thought… Gilmore Girls, Grey’s Anatomy, and Hart of Dixie!
    You should also check out… White Collar, Dance Academy, and Merlin!

  10. We were talking on Twitter today and then I read your post and since my husband isn’t home to watch FNL with me I decided to start a new show and I chose Heart of Dixie. It is good! It’s cute and sweet with some drama. 😀 I do also recommend Greys and True Blood. Have you ever seen Peaky Blinders?! It is on Netflix. It is a gritty british show. It’s really good as well. Good luck choosing what you are going to watch next!

    • ooooh excellent, I may start with Hart of Dixie! I’m usually not a “southern” kind of gal because of where I’ve grown up (the north, duh), but I find myself reaching for it lately!!

      I’m excited for the recs 🙂

  11. I adore Gilmore Girls and cannot wait for the new episodes! I just finished all of Grey’s on Netflix (can’t watch the current season until it comes to Netflix). I started Supernatural so I’ll be continuing with that soon. Those are my three votes from your list!

  12. I’m just about finished with my Gilmore Girls binge! It’s so addicting! It’s definitely more of a Fall show though. And Hart of Dixie is really cute! It’s definitely not a good show but I love it anyway!

  13. Oooh this is SUCH a good idea! I’ve literally just put a bit into my monthly wrap up for tomorrow, asking for help choosing a new TV show, but your way is SO much better. I LOVE Nashville – it’s dramatic, romantic, I love the music, and I’ve got my whole house hooked, even my boyfriend who was initially reluctant. I’m also a big Orphan Black fan, so I’d definitely vote for one of those two.

    I’ve seen True Blood but I felt like it got worse as it went on, and gave up about season 5. I’ve also seen and enjoyed a lot of Grey’s anatomy, I just fell behind and have never got around to catching back up. I hope you love whatever you end up watching!

  14. Gilmore Girls, Veronica Mars, and Orphan Black are my top 3 FAVORITE shows. No joke. If you like intelligent women who are smart and sassy those are perfect!
