My Favourite TV Shows

Hi lovelies! Today's post was supposed to be my monthly favourites but then I realised I didn't really have any new favourites to show you, except a music favourite and a TV favourite. So I thought instead of boring you with the same things I'd do something different and tell you all about my favourite TV shows. To be completely honest with you I have a not so mild obsession with TV shows. Seriously. You name it - I watched it. Or at least decided whether I like it or not. There is something about TV that's different to any movie. The way the characters are built gives you a chance to identify with them - not just for 90 or 120 minutes - for months or maybe even years. My favourite genres are crime/thriller, drama and mystery. I'm not going to talk about Grey's Anatomy today because I mentioned it before and you all know it's my number one TV show. I've been watching it for eight years and absolutely love it. If you want to see me getting way too excited about it you can click HERE and read my 15 Random Facts About Me post. So let's get started. 

OC California is an older show and sadly no longer on air. It came out in 2003 I believe and back in the day I used to be completely obsessed with it. It is one of my all time favourite shows and I could watch it over and over again. In fact I watched all four seasons multiple times already. If you haven't seen it you should definitely go and watch it. I absolutely love it - it basically is about this guy Ryan who comes from a bad area in California called Chino. In the beginning of the show he is in a lot of trouble and gets a public defender who lives in Orange County with his wife and son and long story short Ryan ends up moving into their pool house and gets to start a new life, sort of. Back in the day I used to have a little crush on Benjamin McKenzie. I even had a poster of him on my wall *lol*. Anyways I highly recommend this show. 

The only bad thing about TV shows is that there is such a long break in between seasons which kind of makes you want to watch something new to kill time and this is exactly why I started watching 'The Following'. At the beginning I thought it is going to be an 'okay' show boy was I wrong! It's my new obsession. I absolutely LOVE this show. All it took was 20 minutes of the first episode and I was hooked. I watched both seasons in about two weeks and now I have to wait till January to watch the third season. It's an epic show about this serial killer Joe Caroll who killed fourteen young women and this FBI agent Ryan Hardy. I don't want to give anything away but I highly recommend this show. Joe Caroll is such a fascinating character and I have to admit I have a slight crush on him, even though he is the bad guy - but he has a British accent so that makes is acceptable, I guess. ;) 

A great show but totally different to the others. It's about these four girls who get strange text messages from a person called A. It starts at the beginning of a school year which also marks the one year anniversary of the day their best friend went missing. It basically shows the girls trying everything to find out who this A person is. To be honest didn't really watch the fourth season so I definitely have some catching up to do. But I can't wait to get back into this show.

#4 Law And Order: SVU

A cult classic in the TV crime genre. I basically watched all of the Law & Order series last year during my A-Levels but SVU was my favourite. I don't know how they handle it in other countries but here in Germany we basically get three months off school to study for exams and even though I did quite well with that I obviously didn't study 24/7 so I spent most of my free time watching Law & Order. Before I got really into it I didn't realise there is so many of them. My favourite character is Detective Olivia Benson. She is in it from the beginning and such a kick-ass character. I love her.

#5 Criminal Minds

Another classic in the crime genre and one of my all time favourites. I really like the stories they come up with even though they can be really creepy from time to time. My favourite characters are Dr. Reid (gotta love him - so funny) and Agent Morgan (just look at him - there is no way you cannot not like him). I don't watch it religiously cause I find most of the time the story lines are not really connection which means you could easily watch episode 22 before you watch episode 19. Tonight is actually the start of the new season (yay!) I'm now going to put my laptop aside and watch a bit of Criminal Minds. 

I hope you guys like this post even though it's slightly different. I just love doing posts I'm genuinely excited about. There are obviously many other shows I love, these are just the ones I've never mentioned before. Let me know what if think about any of these shows and if you have a show you think I should watch. I'm always on the hunt for new shows! xo, Marie


  1. Ahhhh I love this post. I watched about half of the OC and it's on my list of things to watch properly. The following I need to catch up with. PLL drives me mad. I just want to know who A is now. Criminal minds is one of my favourite shows Reid and JJ are my favourites.

    1. Thank you so much! The OC just gets better and better. The last season is the best! How far along are you with The Following? The second season kind of confused me. I love the relationship between Joe and Ryan though. PLL drives mad too but don't stop watching I just found out and I definitely didn't see that one coming.
      Ried is the best - he is so funny! xx, Marie

  2. I loved the OC as well - had it on DVD and kept watching it! I watched quite a few seasons of criminal minds but should really catch up with it! x

    1. I kind of wish they'd make another season. I miss watching it.
      What I love about Criminal Minds is that it's so easy to catch up with. Most of the time the stories are not really lining up anyway so it's not so bad if you miss one or two episodes! x

  3. OMG Criminal Minds and The O.C. are actually my life! xo
