Who else loves Netflix or Hulu? I’m a huge binger, honestly. I don’t pay for or use cable TV because I truly love Netflix and Hulu. Being able to watch an entire series from start to finish makes me so incredibly happy. With depression, it helps me break away from my reality at times, which I’m grateful for on most days.
None of us like the exact same things in life, and that’s perfectly OK. I’d like to share with you some of my favorite TV shows, and why. Each of them are different, but I love them all just the same.
Hands down, my all-time favorite TV show has always been Grey’s Anatomy. Not only because of the love that I’ve always had for the medical field, but I fell in love with each and every one of the characters from the show. It has broken my heart multiple times, but it brings so much love and happiness to my soul. Any time I’m feeling down, I can turn it on and it distracts me from my life. I can relate to so many characters in different ways, which is extremely nice, too.
Come on, who doesn’t love Friends? Six best friends who grow together, love together, experience together, laugh together, cry together, live together, and so much more. I’ve always wished I could live a life where all of my closest friends and I were together consistently. I’ve laughed my hardest, and even cried my hardest because of this beautiful sitcom. If you haven’t watched every single episode, what are you doing? Get on it!
ONE TREE HILL
I’m so angry that Netflix removed this series, you have no idea. For so long, I watched this over and over again. My bucket list on day 2 of this blog challenge included that I wanted to visit the set of OTH, and I hope that one day I still can. The characters are so different, but so much alike. The love, friendship, heartache, and contrast between them all had me envious. Who doesn’t want friends and family that close, in a small town, supporting one another through adulthood?
When I was younger, I wanted to be an FBI agent so incredibly bad. Seeing bad ass women with guns, earned respect, and intelligent as hell was inspirational. Saving lives, the adrenaline rush, compassionate hearts, and fighting for what’s right was something I longed for. Even though that’s not where I ended up, watching this series has given me the same feelings I’d hoped for in the profession. I feel a personal connection with this family of co-workers, and you will, too.
If you’re religious, angels, demons, and afterlife is all something that comes to you almost naturally. For myself, with not being religious, I question everything that I cannot feel or see. The love that I have for this show, though, makes me wish that I knew the right answers. Focused on two brothers who hunt demons and supernatural creatures (vampires, werewolves, and shit I’ve never heard of before), it’s intriguing, emotional, overwhelming, and everything in-between. Plus, have you seen Jensen Ackles?
THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE
Although this one is new, the first season had me obsessed with it. I’ve always loved horror, and the supernatural/paranormal possibilities. I’m not quite sure that I believe in any of it, but the thought of it being possible has always intrigued me. It, also, reflects on mental health, which relates to me in a personal way. This show is creepy, emotional, and had me consumed from the start.
Honestly, I binge so many series and love even more. These are only a small portion of my favorites that I wanted to elaborate on, but some of the others include Army Wives, The Walking Dead, 13 Reasons Why, This Is Us, How To Get Away With Murder, Shameless, Gossip Girl, and so much more.
What are some of your favorite TV shows, new and old? Do you recommend any TV shows that I should watch (Netflix or Hulu)? I’m always interested in suggestions for something new.
Day 19 coming soon.
