Favourite TV Shows

So I have this obsession with watching lots of TV shows. I end up fangirling and crying a lot over them (not even joking haha), so I wanted to share some of them with you.

Prison Break:

I started watching Prison Break with my brother some time last year and I have to say I was hooked from the first episode. The storyline was so cleverly crafted and the acting was so good that I wouldn’t mind watching the whole thing again and again. It’s about 2 brothers, one is innocent and the other is framed and sent to prison. They both have to try and trust other inmates and try to escape however it’s not as easy as they thought it would be. The message behind it tells the truth about what the government really is and that’s portrayed in such a way that makes you really think and leaves you wanting more. The acting is phenomenal and you can tell a lot of effort was put into making this show a success. I wasn’t particularly fond of the character T-Bag however by the end of it I loved him. He was played by the actor Robert Knepper who has actually persuaded me to like a character and for me that is a very powerful thing to do. The way the main character Michael Scofield was played really inspired me and I just loved how it wasn’t all serious and there was an aspect of humour. I remember one night last summer me and my brother pulled an all-nighter and watched Prison Break till 10am. We were that hooked and we just simply couldn’t stop watching it. I recommend this show to everyone who reads this, you honestly won’t regret it.

Breaking Bad:

Where should I start? This show made me laugh, cry and feel all sorts of emotions that I never thought a show could make me feel. It’s about an old Chemistry teacher who has cancer and decided to form a partnership with an old student of his who cooks crystal meth for a living. The storyline was very good in the sense that it kept you hooked and it never got boring. The message was really moving and you learn a lot about greed and what drugs and money can do to you. The actors who played Walter White and Jesse Pinkman were so funny yet some of their scenes were really inspiring. Some characters were beginning to annoy me I have to say but other than that it’s a great show and is certainly not a waste of time.

One Tree Hill:

I don’t even know how to begin to describe this show. I’m so glad I started watching it because it’s amazing how teenagers of today can relate to these characters. The storylines have never failed to excite me and it definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. It’s based around 2 brothers who have the same dad but different moms. They start the show off hating each other yet by the end of it they become closer than ever. You get to follow these character’s journeys through the struggles of life and you realise that it’s not all bad and you really have to treasure the good memories you have with the people you love. It’s about love, friendship and hope and it has inspired me in many ways.  I have learnt so much and I have fallen in love with the cast. They are all so talented and have a way of really speaking out to me and I’m sure others have felt that too. Sophia Bush who plays Brooke Davis and lots of other cast members have been fantastic and I just wish it didn’t end. It had me crying and laughing at certain points and it just makes me so happy to know that there’s something there that I can turn to when I’m having a bad day. I don’t want to keep rambling on because it feels like I’m writing an essay but I really do encourage you to watch this show as it’s so relatable, quirky and moving.

The Vampire Diaries:

I think I started watching this show last summer so I haven’t been a fan right from when the first episode aired however I really love this show. It’s quite different as it has the supernatural element as it involves vampires, werewolves and witches. It’s about a girl called Elena who falls in love with a vampire called Stefan. His brother Damon soon arrives in town and causes lots of trouble especially between his brother and Elena. It left a cliff hanger at the end of every episode which was really exciting and forced me to keep watching. The acting was excellent especially from Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder. For me I can really relate to Damon’s character and I sympathise with him a lot. It gives you a mixture of drama, romance and thrill which I really like. There are lots of reasons you should watch this show but I don’t want to bore you so I’ll let you find out for yourselves.

Pretty Little Liars:

This show is about 4 girls who thought that their friend Alison had been murdered. This was until they started getting messages from some mysterious person named ‘A’. This starts to scare the girls as the police soon after find Alison’s body. The girls have been tortured, manipulated and lied to and have been forced to do things against their will. This show brings so much excitement and drama and you will want to find out who ’A’ is so badly that it will kill you. It’s so heart wrenching and it teaches you to be careful who you trust. The acting is great and the storylines are very exciting and will get you hooked. There’s romance, heartbreak and lots of scary moments that will make you want more. I have to say it’s more of a show for girls however guys can definitely watch it too. You will really enjoy this show and you will become obsessed on finding out who this mysterious ‘A’ is.

I hope you enjoyed reading these reviews on some of the shows I love and that I’ve persuaded you to check them out yourselves. It felt like I was writing an essay so I hope I haven’t bored you too much. Thanks for reading.


Hugs & kisses,
