TV TAG

TVTag

The TV Tag was created by Kayley Hyde and you can watch her original video here:

I wasn’t tagged to do this, but I’ve been watching a lot of TV lately so I figured this would be a good way to talk about some of it!!!

I honestly have such a weird relationship with TV. I’m either watching 500 shows or I don’t watch anything for sometimes, lmao. It’s only recently that I started watching TV again before that I hadn’t really watched anything properly in 2 years? There’s also probably a MILLION shows that I’ve forgotten to talk about.

Favourite Shows?

I love all four of these shows SO MUCH and all for different reasons. Lost was the first show I ever really got obsessed over and joined a ‘fandom’ for. Criminal Minds, Parks and Rec and Brooklyn Nine Nine are all a lot more current. I love B99 and Parks and Rec because they make me laugh and bring some happiness to my life and Criminal Minds is probably my favourite current show ever because I’m just so invested in the character’s lives and they feel like my family. I know it’s had A LOT of ups and downs and it’s not quite the same without certain characters, but it’s still everything to me.

Favourite genre?

Anything? I honestly don’t really have specific genres when it comes to TV shows? I guess I prefer Crime, Comedy and Sci-Fi/Fantasy, but I’ll pretty much give anything a go.

Least favourite show?

I was so excited when Riverdale got announced. I never read the original Archie comics but I read the reboot and I ADORED IT. I loved the characters and the upbeat plot. Veronica had the BEST character growth and even when it was ridiculous it was in the best way. However, the show completely butchered everything good about the comics. There’s been so many awful problems with this show (and a lot of its cast) that I don’t even know where to start? I suppose the worst thing is the complete erase of Jughead’s asexuality and the fact that they “joked” about self harm. That’s not to even mention the sexualised statutory rapeb and queerbaiting. There’s been so many more though and if you want to see for yourself just how awful this show is I really recommend you read the following links:

Most Rewatched Show/Favourite Show to Binge Watch?

I actually haven’t really rewatched many TV shows? It’s rare if I finish a season, haha. I suppose it would be Criminal Minds or Parks and Rec though. I really want to rewatch Lost and The O.C.

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

Definitely binge watching. I find it so hard to keep up with TV shows for various reasons. Although the worst part of binge watching is once you’ve caught up and you’re just like ‘WHAT NOW’? Also that coma induced state you kinda come out of. Like, I remember watching two season of the The 100 in just over a day and when I finished I was like; “What year is it????????”.

Favourite television characters?

Can you see that I (mostly) have a type?????? lmaoooooo I love me some strong, bad ass ladies. And like the kind of bad ass that has depth and emotion and flaws. April Ludgate (Parks and Rec) and Rosa Diaz (Brooklyn Nine Nine) are two characters I relate to so much. I just love Jessica Jone’s (Jessica Jones) personality, her sarcasm and pessimism is super relatable. Penelope Garcia and Spencer Reid (Criminal Minds) are both my faves forever. Like I love Penelope because she’s a huge inspiration to me as someone who wants to work in the tech industry and her optimism is just so pure and genuine??? And I feel like I don’t even need to explain why I love Reid, haha.

ALSO SHOUT OUT TO STEVE HARRINGTON WHO HAS BECOME AN INTENSE NEW FAVOURITE I LOVE HIM SO MUCH !!!!!!!!! I honestly had such an up and down relationship with Steve in season 1 because I could see he wanted to be a good person, but he was also an Asshole but in season 2 he grew so much??? (Also I wanna marry Joe Keery)

Favourite television ships?

Okay, so I don’t really ship anyone anymore but I suppose one that I will go down with for the rest of eternity is Morgan and Garcia from Criminal Minds. I totally get the writer’s reasoning for not putting them together but they give me 11 years of scenes like this and ?????? S O U L M A T E S

Currently, I’m also obsessed with Jessica and Trish from Jessica Jones. THEY LOVE EACH OTHER SO MUCH. LET THEM BE END GAME.

Show you fell out of love with?

Image result for teen wolf poster Image result for agents of shield poster

Okay, I can’t even express to y’all how much these two shows meant to me or how INVESTED I was in them. I was both right into the fandoms on Tumblr. I used to get up ridiculous hours in the morning SO I COULD LIVESTREAM THEM and I even bought a domain for Agents of Shield because I ran a fansite. They both let me down SO much. Teen Wolf just fell apart after season 4. The writers ruined everything I loved about it. I also hated how much fan service was done towards Stiles and Lydia and I hate even more that Scott took a backseat to Stiles in a show that was SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT HIM. Honestly this show should have ended in season 3. And Agents of Shield turned into such a mess after season 1. I HATED what they did to Ward and how they trivialised his abuse and even hand delivered him to his abuser in one episode??? It also promised to be a show about humans in the Marvel universe but then next minute everyone had superpowers and it was about inhumans. No thanks.

I was also super invested in The 100 and Supernatural. I just kinda stopped watching both and never continued? The 100 did a lot of things that pissed me off, but I kind of want to start rewatching it just because I have an undying loyalty for Bob Morely. I was in love with him when I was like 16 and he was on Home and Away lmao. I stopped watching Supernatural because I just didn’t really care about the storyline. I miss the early seasons so much. Like The 100 I am thinking of maybe rewatching it though just for nostalgic purposes.

There’s so many other shows I started watching and never finished. I hold really bad grudges when my favourite characters are killed and rarely keep watching (The Walking Dead, How to Get Away with Murder) and then others I just stop because I lose interest (Game of Thrones, All the DC TV shows).

Cancelled too soon?

OH MY GOD OKAY SWEET/VICIOUS DESERVED SO MUCH BETTER AND MTV CAN FIGHT ME. It addressed rape culture in such a BRILLIANT way and even called out police brutality and racism. There was no girl hate and the female friendships were BEAUTIFUL. I will never, ever, ever, EVER EVER EVER !!!!! FORGIVE MTV FOR CANCELLING THIS SHOW.

Blood Drive was this dystopian/horror show on Syfy that was about fuel no longer existing and cars having to run on human blood. It was this weird, disturbing, gore-y little show but I loved it. I understand why it was cancelled because it’s the type of show that only certain people could appreciate but it was also so much more. It’s honestly one of the most unique shows I’ve seen in a long time and it’s what reignited my love for TV. This show is what ended my like 2 year long TV hiatus lmao. IT DESERVED MORE SEASONS.

WHAT THE FUCK, NETFLIX?????

Guilty pleasure show?

Image result for RICK AND MORTY poster

First of all I HATE the term “guilty pleasure”. I guess this is the closest though? Not that I think there’s anything wrong with watching Rick and Morty because it’s hilarious and actually has some really deep and meaningful undertones. However, it is pretty messy and crude at times and can be problematic.

  1. That first sentence is so relatable hahahah! I also either Watch ALL the shows at the same time or not at all. I’m currently on the not at all phase. Almost. I’m watching The Flash, Supergirl and OF COURSE B99 but I’m caught up with all of them so it doesn’t really feel like I’m watching anything right now if it makes sense.
    ALSO!! I WOULD DIE FOR ROSA DIAZ!! I love her so so so much omg. And I also fell out of love with both Teen Wold and The 100.

  2. I used to be such a huge tv fan, I would have 2-3 shows almost every night that I was watching. But my problem is that a lot of the shows I started off loving just go on and on for way too long until they just go bad or I lose interest on my own. And now I don’t have a lot of shows I love anymore. I loved Supernatural, but lost interest after like 8 seasons… Teen Wolf and Agents of SHIELD should have stopped sooner as well. I do LOVE Jessica Jones (OMG did you see the trailer for season 2? I can’t wait) and Stranger Things! And totally agree about Steve Harrington ❤ Still into The 100 as well. Also, I heard so many good things about B99, I should really look into that.

  3. Parks and Rec is such a glorious show. I love all the characters, and Leslie Knope has a special place in my heart! I feel the same about Teen Wolf, I loved Seasons 1-3, didn’t mind 4, but it seems like the story lines just got more far-fetched and I didn’t really care about the newer cast. And Lydia and Stiles came out of nowhere – I really enjoyed their platonic relationship!

  4. I watch so many of these! YES FOR PARKS AND REC! I identify with all of the characters hahahah I knew you would include B99 and I’m so happy you also added Sweet/Vicious, though I’m not glad about the circumstances.
    I hope you like Runaways when you get to it!

  5. YES Lauren, watch The Bold Type, it is so, so good 🙂 I don’t really binge watch shows too much, or don’t watch as many shows as you do, but when I do it’s more, comedy-like shows, I’m too much of a wuss to watch crime things hahaha 🙂 I love this tag 😀

  6. Oh I love Criminal Minds too and totally ship Penelope and Morgan, though I love that they’re just friends too.
    I actually liked the Riverdale TV show (well, season 1 because that’s all I’ve seen of it), but I agree that it has some problems. I thought it was separate from the comics though.
    Totally agree about Teen Wolf and I feel the same about Supernatural, though I still like it and rewatch episodes every now and then but the plot for each season is a bit repetitive to me.

  7. Oh great picks for this tag Lauren. I am loving Brooklyn Nine-Nine, it’s one of my all-time favourite TV shows and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it. Also I’m a massive fan of Criminal Minds but I tend to just re-watch the older seasons rather than keep up to date with the newer ones because I prefer it before all the old cast members left. 🙂
    I’m sorry about Riverdale, that it was such a disappointment, and yes I am so disappointed by Sense8 being cancelled. That was an incredible show! 😀
    Great picks for this tag Lauren, and great post as well. 🙂 ❤

  8. I freaking love Parks and Rec, it seriously is just the best show. I love April, she is definitely one of my favourite characters. I pretty like have the same favourites as you (except for Criminal Minds). I am always watching Brooklyn Nine Nine, I pretty much go back to the first episode when I finish all of the current episodes lol. Great post!!

  9. Lucifer is seriously one of the best shows! The boyfriend and I love it! Also, since you seem down with horror, The Exorcist: the TV Show is another fantastic show.
    Supernatural has gotten better. There is one season where they go back to their roots and do a lot more hunting like back in the old days. It’s great!
    This is a cool tag. I kinda want to do this.

  10. Whatever happens, Supernatural is the “it” show for me! I’ve been only watching Supernatural and Supergirl among English shows. And then there are my beloved K-Dramas. Anyway, I prefer to binge watch but that depends on how much time I’ve got. I usually binge watch when I’m too sick to go out.

  11. I USED TO BE THE BIGGEST SUPERNATURAL FAN HAHAHA then I got depressed and stopped watching everything (I was watching like 19 shows or something) and never really picked it back up xD I do agree on parks and rec and B99 though!! My fav shows ❤❤❤

  12. If I did this post, it would be out of control as well! I don’t know whether I like binging or watching weekly. There are some shows that I watched weekly, and it’s definitely made a lasting impact on me. For instance, I watched Vampire Diaries weekly since it’s premiere. When that show got cancelled, I had no idea what to do with my Thursday/Friday nights, and I realzied how important it was to me. But I also love binging and just getting the story in one go. I watch Riverdale, but it’s nothing like the comics. And all my friends who watch it are not even aware that Jughead was supposed to be asexual. It frustrates me that such a big show can make mistakes, and no one really talks about them. :/ I would recommend watching the 100 again! Season 3 was kinda all over the place, but I thought Season 4 was pretty good. It took a couple episodes for me to get into it again, but I think it found its groove again. I would say that season 2 is still my favorite so far!! I also fell out of love with Teen Wolf! I was watching the last season and realized that I didn’t care for any of the characters anymore except Stiles and Scott. Plus, the plots go really convoluted.

    Great tag!! I hope you love The Bold Type. I have yet to watch it, but I think I’ll start it this winter break!

  13. I love binge-watching too. I don’t watch too much TV at all, hardly any, but when I get in the mood I might binge. Did that recently with Stranger Things. However, with GoT, I will religiously watch each episode as soon as it comes out!
