five things friday: favorite tv shows


I love TV. Is that a sad admission? Maybe. But I think I do enough in life that I can say "I love TV" and not seem like a total loser.

It was really easy for me to come up with my five favorite TV shows of all time. I thought of it this way: if I only got to have 5 TV series to watch for the rest of my life, what would make the cut? I've got adorkable comedy, I've got geek comedy, I've got reality TV, I've got sarcastic girl comedy, and I've got a drama that will make you think. Honorable mentions: Home Improvement, Mad Men, The Office, and probably a few others that I will be sad I didn't add to the list.

Making this little list made me want to watch Gilmore Girls with my sister. Maybe I'll get out my old seasons and relive all the sarcastic and quick-witted goodness. 

I really wanna know - what are your favorite TV shows? The ones that would make the desert island cut? Of course it is a given that your desert island would have electricity and a television, in which case, send me now!

    1. I've never watched Scrubs. Maybe I will have to watch some of the repeats next time I come across them. I have heard it's really funny.

  4. I guess we get most things a little later than you over in the UK, but we LOVE Big Bang Theory in our house, I watched Gilmore Girls to death when I was pregnant (both times...they show it during the day here.

    We have just started watching New Girl (2 episodes in) and think it's hilarious! But my all time fave is The Mentalist! It's very clever but light too. I'm also a sucker for Desperate Housewives! And I don't think it's sad. You need an outlet when you've been busy all day ;)

    1. An outlet is a great way to think of it :) We also watch Desperate Housewives. Yes, my husband watches with me - haha! I am really interested to see how they are going to end the series.

  5. I L-O-V-E TV! There's no way I can pick my all-time favorites, so I'll share my 5 favorites that are currently on: Dexter, White Collar, True Blood, Modern Family, and The Big Bang Theory.

    1. Sounds like everyone loves Big Bang Theory. Sheldon is the best! I don't watch any of the others you mentioned, but there is always room in my tv-lovin-heart for one more :)

  6. I love Gilmore Girls too! A dear friend lent me the entire series on DVD while I was on maternity leave in 2009. I fell in love with the quick wit and would totally live in Stars Hollow if I could. My all time fave though is Friends. I record lots of the re-runs so I always have one handy to watch. My new faves include Person of Interest and Blue Bloods; Jim Caviezel and Tom Selleck both make my heart melt. :)

    1. My sister and I always talk about how we want to live in Stars Hollow! Friends is a classic - I should definitely have added that to my Honorable Mentions list!

  9. I love to watch Gilmore Girls with my sister and my mom, I have all the seasons but two...it's good to have on when I'm busy craftin' as well....But my new favorite that I CANNOT miss, is NEW GIRL!! I'm a big fan of Zooey Deschanel. Her quirkiness cracks me up! I also love her singing, if your interested you should check out her band 'She and Him'. They put out a Christmas album this year, it rocked!

    1. I have their Christmas album - it is great! So mellow. I am loving New Girl so much! I can't wait til it comes out so I can re-watch it!

  10. ooo... i'm really LOVING new girl right now. last week's episode where they mentioned 'Yacht Flare' had me cackling soooo funny. i also like Modern Family for a good laugh. White Collar is pretty good as well. My all time favorites though that I can watch again and again are Murder She Wrote (yes, I'm only 32, but still...) AND Friends. those certainly kept me company during my maternity leave. (ps - i'm not sure where my 'google' comment verification will take you, but i'm at www.ourlittlegems.com)
