Top Ten Tuesday: TV edition


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosting by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is TV-themed! I have chosen to do my current TBR – or, rather to-be-watched, list of television shows.

We don’t watch a lot of television, so I have a lot more shows that I want to watch, versus those I have already seen!


1. Stranger Things – I have heard this is greatness, especially if you were a child of the 80s, so it is currently at the top of my Netflix queue.


2. Black-ish – I watched the Pilot episode last week, and hope to see the rest of the episodes very soon!


3. Madam Secretary – I have a penchant for political dramas.


4. Call the Midwife – a BBC period drama about a group of nurse midwives working in London in the 1950s and 60s. I have been trying to find something to fill the Downton Abbey void, and hopefully this will fit the bill.


5. Supergirl – Season 1 is coming to Netflix streaming on September 10; M and I will be watching it together.


6. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell – How did I not know that they turned this book into a mini-series? I was quite excited when I discovered this delicious fact last week.


7. Game of Thrones – I have held off from watching GoT until I read the books. I plan to start the first book in January…watching season one will follow shortly after I finish it!


8. Veep – Like I said, I like my political dramas. I also like political satire!


9. Sherlock – Benedict Cumberbatch and Sherlock, two of my favorite things.


10. The Newsroom – Yes, I have heard it is remarkably bad, but I still want to give it a chance.

  1. Game of Thrones is one of those shows I want to be brave enough to watch (it took me ages just to get to the opening credits of Stranger Things – I’m not good with suspense). 😛 I started reading the first GoT book though, and it’s almost like GRRM wrote it with the intention of transferring it to screen – the “chapters” just bounce back and forth from place to place and between different characters’ perspectives.

    • It’s funny you should say that…I just gave Revenant a try this weekend, and didn’t make it past the first 20 minutes. Way too gory for my taste. Which is incredibly frustrating, since I have been waiting years for Leo to win an Oscar…why did it have to be for a movie that I can’t watch?

      Despite it reading like it was meant to be brought to the screen, do you like the first GoT book?
