As you all know, I am a lover of good TV and I love some drama (on TV off course) and I have five shows you should check out this year!
I could talk your ear off about Gilmore Girls, it is hands down one of my favourite shows, it has everything and if you are looking for a show to binge watch this year, this is the one for you. If you are looking for drama, wit, humour and real life mixed into one, try this show. Focusing around 32 year old mother and 16 year old daughter in a little town called Stars Hollow. Between the locals in town, the girls love life’s and the ‘grandparents’ you have enough drama in the 45 minutes each episode runs for. Gilmore Girls is on Netflix and you can buy the box set for about 40 pound online. By the way, as an added bonus, The Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life has just come out on Netflix, so we finally get to hear those last 4 words!
One Tree Hill
And the reward for most disaster’s to happen in one series goes too…one tree hill. I only got into this show this year( on a friends recommendation). You can go from hating a character one season and by the next you love them. Take Brooke Davis for instance. You will cry during the cause of this TV series though, just a warning. You will most certainly have a ‘ship’ by the end of the series, mine is Haley and Nathan!
When I started watching this show, I was sceptical as to whether I would like the storyline or the characters but if you love shows like Gilmore Girls and One Tree Hill, you’ll probably like this one. The show is all about a same sex couple, Lena and Steph raising their 2 foster children, Jesus and Marianna and Steph’s son from a previous marriage called Brandon. The show starts with new comer Callie Jacobs, a foster child who has had some bad foster homes and just wants a safe place for her and her brother Jude, luckily she finds that for her and her brother with the fosters. Between Callie and Brandon’s secret love for each over and Marianna problems with her birth mover, Jesus’s issues with his pills and girl trouble and Jude’s sexuality, this show has everything and again, it will have you crying, laughing and sitting at the end of your seat and screaming at the end of each episode, they do love a good cliff hanger on this show.
I love crime shows, a little too much I think, but bones has been by far one of the best I have seen so far. I am so unhappy that it’s ending this year after season 12, but we still have 11 amazing season to binge watch whenever you want too. What’s different about this show is that, it doesn’t just have crime drama, it also has the wit and humour I love. It did take me about 2 seasons of binge watching too realize that Emily (who plays Bones) and Zooey (plays Jess on New Girl) are sisters. By the way, Zooey features in an episode of Bones as well.
I hope you like my top 4 TV shows you should watch this year and at least got one new favourite from this list.
