One of the themes suggested in the collective blogging group I am a part of was “5 TV Shows That Affected My Life”. I thought this was going to be an easy one since I’m a TV series junkie. Guess what? It’s not! I watch way too many series to pick just 5… but I’ll give it a try:
Jem and the holograms
Awesome chicks with colored hair playing rock songs and saving the world? What’s not to love? If you grew up in the 80’s you’ll remember this cartoon. My sister and I also had the dolls and they came with cassette tapes, with songs from the shows (including karaoke versions).
This was the first TV series I started following seriously. I had a big crush on Mulder/David Duchovny and wanted to be Scully. Five years ago, Tom gave me the entire series for my birthday and we rewatched all nine seasons (even the bad ones!).
I remember staying in just to watch Friends with my sister. If it’s on TV I will still watch it even tough I know most episodes by heart. My favorite characters are Chandler and Rachel and I still want to get the box with all seasons.
Six Feet Under
There are no words to describe this show other than perfect. The final scene will always get me and I cry like a baby. It’s beautiful.
Sex & the City
This series made me realize having friends, female friends, is extremely important. I watched the whole series with Tom (he gave me the shoe box and sat with me through all 6 seasons) and later one with my mom and my sisters. I still can’t forgive Carrie for not picking Aidan
Honorable Mention 1: Grey’s Anatomy
I still watch it and now the quality has gone down a lot. I miss Burke, George and Addison. It was while I was watching season two and listening to the song Chasing Cars in one of the episodes that I realized I was in love with Tom. So there’s that…
Honorable Mention 2: Law & Order – Special Victims Unit
I love detective series, I love courtroom series, I love controversial themes… mix them together and you get Special Victims Unit. I still miss Stabler (who doesn’t?).
What are your favorite shows?
