The TV Shows Tag

I adore doing Blog Tags they are a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers. Recently, I have discovered several tags from Youtube. I’m not going to start a YouTube channel, but I am going to attempt to do a few of these tags on the blog! Starting with the TV Shows Tag. This tag was originally designed by Kayley Hyde on Youtube and the questions are at the end of the post.

Favourite genre?

I love science fiction or fantasy show’s, especially if they have interesting themes or mix in other genres. Like how Game of Thrones is also a political drama.

Least favourite show?

I’m not a fan of reality TV shows. I remember watching the first season of Big Brother, with everyone else. However, I didn’t really get the attraction. Since then I have never understood the fascination with these types shows. So I guess my least favourite show is Love Island, even though I have never seen it.

I’m not really keen on Saturday night entertainment TV either. I don’t watch X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent or Strictly Come Dancing. I have watched the odd episode here and there, but I just can’t seem to get into them.

Most re-watched show/favourite show to binge watch?

Probably Game of Thrones, I normally watch the previous seasons before the new season starts. Something I have just finished doing. In recent years, with the even of telecasting, I watch each episode twice on the day it airs. First, at 2 am as part of the simulcast then at 9 pm.

Do you prefer watching things week-by-week or binge-watching?

It does depend on the show. Some shows I find too emotional to binge-watch. The Handmaid’s Tale or This is Us are good examples of this. I normally cry whilst watching them, if I watch more than an episode at a time, I end up an emotional wreck. Other shows, like Stranger Things or Daredevil I like to binge-watch in a weekend.

Favourite television characters?

  • Arya Stark from Game of Thrones.
  • Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars: Clone Wars.
  • Kirito from Sword Art Online
  • Jessica Fletcher from Murder, She Wrote

Favourite television ships?

I have previously written about my favourite OTPs from popular fandoms as part of the Five Fandom Friday series. But a few of the ones from TV Shows are…

  • Rory and Jess from Gilmore Girls – I hated the end of the Netflix specials.
  • Veronica and Logan from Veronica Mars
  • Am I allowed to include Nightwing and Oracle here? They are a couple in Young Justice.

Show you could never get into?

Supernatural. I actually wrote a blog post about this last year. I have recently discovered 13 seasons are in Amazon Prime. So maybe it’s time for me to consider watching it.

Show you fell out of love with?

Heroes. I adored the first season. I remember going to London Film and Comic Con in 2007 to meet the cast. And being so excited for the second season. However, it just didn’t have the same feel. And I stopped watching. Recently I did watch the whole thing. And still adored the first season. However, it wasn’t the same after that.

I will reserve judgement until after the series finale, but I am not enjoying this season of Game of Thrones as must as the previous seasons. So it might be joining Heroes as a show I fell out of love with!

Cancelled too soon?

Firefly, I am never going to get over that. In fact, I was pretty upset Veronica Mars ended. I loved the first two seasons but felt the third was just thrown together. Saying that I loved the movie and am interested to see where the new season takes us.

Guilty pleasure show?

Probably, a murder mystery show. I love the old BBC adaption of Miss Marple, as well as Poirot, But I also love shows like Monk and Psych. Oh and I adore Murder She Wrote.

What are you currently watching?

As I said I have just finished watching the previous seasons of Game of Thrones. As I was so excited about the new season. Apart from that, I am also loving The Good Fight, and Line of Duty.
