TV Shows, Anyone?
I’ve been continuously watching these TV shows during my summer vacation and I thought it would be great to share them with you guys! Here is a list of shows that I personally like. Of course, these are my favorites and recommendations so don’t be disappointed if your favs aren’t in here. x
1. Orange is the New Black (2013 - )
Summary: The story of Piper Chapman, a woman in her thirties who is sentenced to fifteen months in prison after being convicted of a decade-old crime of transporting money for her drug-dealing girlfriend. (IMDB)
Personal opinion: This show is one of my favorites; I’d even say it’s a must-watch. However, you must note that a lot of the scenes in this movie are inappropriate — so if you’re uncomfortable with watching sex-related stuff or if you have nosy parents who barge in your room every ten seconds, you probably shouldn’t watch it. What I love about this show is that there are so many parts with twisted humor, but some other parts that are so deep and meaningful that it will touch your heart. You might not like it at first, but keep watching it and you’ll be intrigued by Chapman’s life.
2. Scandal (2012 - )
Summary: A White House Communications Director leaves to start her own crisis management firm only to discover she has not left the past behind. (IMDB)
Personal opinion: I don’t watch political shows. I really don’t. But let me tell you something: once you get sucked into Scandal, there’s no going back. God, I honestly love this show so so much and it’d be one of my top favorites. Highly recommended. (Plus, the President in this show is Tris’ dad in Divergent.)
3. Pretty Little Liars (2010 - )
Summary: Four friends band together against an anonymous foe who threatens to reveal their darkest secrets, while unraveling the mystery of the murder of their best friend. (IMDB)
Personal opinion: This show. It gives me so much feels and I cry over literally every ship in here. You might think to yourself, “Pretty Little Liars? Is this the more tamed version of Gossip Girls or some shit?” But noOOO this show is great and I highly recommend you to watch it. It can get a bit creepy sometimes though, so watch it with a friend or with your lights on if you’re easily scared. - Kisses, A.
4. Baby Daddy (2012 - )
Summary: A 20-something bachelor bartender becomes an unlikely parent when an ex-girlfriend leaves a baby girl on his doorstep. (IMDB)
Personal opinion: This show is full of humorous and lovable characters. If you’re a comedy/sitcom kind of gal or guy, this is a great choice for you. It’s really funny and stress-relieving, and I often watch it after finals and other exams.
5. 2 Broke Girls (2011 - )
Summary: Two young women waitressing at a greasy spoon diner strike up an unlikely friendship in the hopes of launching a successful business - if only they can raise the cash. (IMDB)
Personal opinion: I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH. I first got to know Kat Dennings from when I went to watch Thor 2 with my friend. She recommended this show to me and I fell completely in love with it. It’s so hilarious omg and I just love it. Yes, there are unlimited amount of sexual innuendos and racist jokes, but if you don’t mind that stuff - just watch it. You gotta watch it.
6. Awkward. (2011 - )
Summary: An unpopular 15 year old gains unexpected immediate, yet unwanted, popularity at her high school when the student body mistakes an accident she has for a suicide attempt. (IMDB)
Personal opinion: I had a love-hate relationship with this show. I liked it and all, but the things that happen in this show are so unrealistic that it’s funny. Some parts got me kind of pissed off, but I recommend watching it. It’s relatable (somewhat) and pretty funny.
Okay, that was my list of must-watch TV shows! I know what some of you are going to say: “But where’s Friends and all the other really good stuff?” There are some reasons why I didn’t add them here: 1) I didn’t watch it so I can’t give my personal opinion on it or 2) I didn’t like it. It’s more likely to be 1, though. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy watching the shows I recommended and have a great summer vacation! Stay rad B)
Lots and lots of love,
