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.
Madame Secretary is great although I’ve only watched a few episodes so far. My Top 10 is at http://bit.ly/2cb8ItF
I have heard a lot of good things about Madam Secretary, but at the same time, it also seems to be one of those shows that flys under the radar.
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?
Been hearing nothing but good things about Stranger Things recently hehe 😀 http://www.curious-daisy.com/top-ten-tuesday/my-top-8-tv-shows/
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell is one of my favorites – the adaptation is amazing!
Check out my TTT.
I am glad to hear it is a good adaptation!
