Well…I just thought that I would let anyone who wants to read know my all time favourite TV series, so here goes…:
(In no particular order)
– Desperate Housewives
There have been a LOT of episodes of this series. There are 8 seasons, with around 20 episodes within each. For anyone who doesn’t know, Desperate Housewives follows several families on Wisteria Lane in America. These families, especially the wives, have LOTS of drama in their lives, including Plane Crashes, Hurricanes and murders. It’s a bit of a chick flick series, as it is a bit melodramatic, but I would give it a try if you haven’t already- (it’s one of the most well-known tv series in America).
This series is actually a new one for me, but it has already made it onto this list- which is saying something. If you don’t already know, Lost follows a group of people whose aeroplane crashed on a desert island, but mainly focusing on a few main characters. This one is also a tad unrealistic, as there are polar bears and a strange French woman on this island, and many of the characters hold dark secrets. It is really addictive, so only watch it if you have plenty of free time.
– Falling Skies
This series I already mentioned in a previous post, and it is a bit of a strange one. As I mentioned before, I only discovered this series whilst changing channel, but I am really glad I did. It is about a group of people, after the world has been attacked and taken over by aliens, who are trying to survive in extremely difficult situations. This one is one for the boys I think, unless you are like me (a bit of a tomboy). It involves a lot of action, and tension, which is the norm for the famous director- Steven Spielberg. Give it a try, it is just kicking off in America (not so much in the UK, unfortunatly).
– Ugly Betty
This series has actually finished now, but when it was on (for a long time) it was my favourite show. It is all about this quite unfashionable, but adorable, girl named Betty (hence the title) who manages to become a writer for a fashion magazine. She hits a lot of roadblocks; people hating her, boyfriends leaving her, and just getting told she isn’t good enough, but she just carries on. It is really worth looking back on, try and find it on catchup or something: it’s awesome.
– Modern Family
Modern family is actually pretty modern itself- its only in its second series. But, it is hilarious. It follows a strange suburban family in America, and all of their endeavours. All of the characters have strong personalities and traits, which really makes it interesting to watch. It is on, in the UK, every Friday at 8PM on Sky1 I think, but earlier in the USA. You should watch it if you like a good laugh on a Friday night.
– Downton Abbey
Downton Abbey is quite a new British TV series, which is extremely popular here. It is more of a girly programme, but I think boys could watch it as well. It is a historical drama, about a Lord and Lady, and their family, of Downton Abbey. It follows the whole family, as well as the servants, and gives a believable and emotional storyline. It really is worth a watch.
– The Simpsons
The Simpsons just had to be on here, everyone has heard of it and it is for the whole family. I don’t even have to give a description. Just watch it.
