5 shows you need in your life

I’m gonna start this post with something obvious: I love TV shows.

If you know a bit about me, you probably know that I’m always either watching a serie or catching up with some other. Look, here’s some info to corroborate it: In the last eight months, I’ve spent 191 hours watching TV shows on my own. That’s equal to 8 full days approximately. And I haven’t counted that, if that’s what you were thinking. I got it from Episode Calendar.

That being clear, you can imagine that I am a fan of a lot of shows. Today, I have a list (not in any specific order, because choosing was way too hard) of my absolute faves. From iZombie to Stranger Things, GET READY!

iZombie

Oh, my beloved iZombie.

I found the show a long time ago through social media and I didn’t think I’d like it, but here I am!

The show is about Liv Moore, who, in a boat party, is turned into a zombie. To calm the need of new brains to eat, she takes a job at the morgue of the hospital she used to work in, as a medical resident. Whenever she eats a victim’s brain, Liv temporarily obtains some of their personality traits and experiences flashbacks of their murders. She uses all that information to help Clive Babineaux, a detective, solve the crimes.

Favourite episode:

2×10 – Method Head, where Liv eats the brain of a young actor starring in a zombie TV show.

Cast:

Rose McIver as Olivia (Liv) Moore

Malcolm Goodwin as Clive Babineaux

Rahul Kohli as Ravi Chakrabarti

Robert Buckley as Major Lilywhite

David Anders as Blaine DeBeers

Game of Thrones

My favourite of all the favourites!

Game of Thrones it’s set in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros and the continent of Essos. The series show the violent dynastic struggles that live the noble families everyday for the Iron Throne of Westeros, while other families are fighting for independence from it. As the show keeps going, it also shows different stories from the North and the continent of Essos.

Eye Candy

When I was younger, my absolute favourite TV show was Zoey 101, where Victoria Justice played Lola. As a fangirl, when I found out that Victoria had a new show, I had to watch it, obviously.

Eye Candy is about a woman, Lindy, who, when a friend creates a profile with her name on a dating app, suspects that one of her online dates is a serial killer. With the help of one of his friends, Jake, a detective, she tries to find who the killer is.

Favourite episode:

1×07 – SOS, where a couple is attacked in an apartment they rented online, and Jake asks Lindy to help him.

Cast:

Victoria Justice as Lindy Sampson

Casey Deidrick as Tommy Calligan

Teen Wolf

Teen Wolf starts when Scott McCall, a totally normal teenager, is attacked by a werewolf and becomes one himself. Scott and his human best friend, Stiles, have to deal with Scott’s lack of control at first, people who suspect of the changes in his personality and physical condition and his girlfriend’s family, who, unfortunately, are werewolf hunters.

I have mixed feelings about this show. I loved and enjoyed seasons one, two and three. Then season four came, and… what a disappointment. After that, I didn’t keep watching the next seasons. But, even though I haven’t seen the whole show, I feel the need to put it on the list.

Favourite episode:

I truly can’t choose one, so I’m gonna say season 3. From episode 1 to 24.

Cast:

Tyler Posey as Scott McCall

Holland Roden as Lydia Martin

Dylan O’Brien as Stiles Stilinski

Tyler Hoechlin as Derek Hale

Orphan Black

For some weeks, she pretends to be that woman, and, trying to find the reason of her suicide and the reason why she looks just like her, she finds the Clone Club, a group of women who share the same face and the same curiosity about their creation.
