Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite TV Shows

I've decided to jump on board with Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is: other types of stores, i.e. movies or tv shows. I'm going with TV shows! To simplify it, I'm going with shows that are current - it'd be eaten up by stuff like Joss Whedon and X-Files otherwise.

1. Doctor Who - I wasn't even five when I was first introduced to this show. I love it! LOVE IT! Seriously, I'm a bit obsessed I enjoy it so much. 

2. Masterpiece - this is a cheat and a catch all because I do enjoy the classics, Mystery, and contemporary, but I don't watch ALL of them. Of course I'm a HUGE Downton Abbey fan and we devour Sherlock. Silk was fabulous (I hope it comes back) and I'm completely loving Endeavour right now, too. I don't really do Poirot or some of the others, but definitely too many of them to list individually. 

3. Grey's Anatomy - yep, I've been watching since the beginning. 

4. The Walking Dead - do I need to include an explanation?

5. Justified - oh, Raylan! On that note I should just include Luther here as well. 

6. Parenthood - so sad this is coming to an end soon. 

7. Sleepy Hollow - yeah, it's got a certain element of cheese to it but I think it's super fun. 

8. Grimm - oh, I love this one! I can't wait til it comes back next season and we get to see what's up with Nick!

9. Game of Thrones - duh!

10. Ripper Street - a period mystery show starring Matthew McFadyen. I've sung it's praises here before

As you can see, I'm a little bit of a Brit tv addict. I ran out of space before I even got to Orphan Black! Totally binge worthy! I did this post last year on some of my favorite British shows and some book recs too if you're interested.

I did pick The X-Files and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, because they will always be my favorites! Plus Eureka even though it is no longer on. But like you I also picked The Walking Dead!

Doctor Who is hands down my favorite show as well...followed closely by FRIENDS and Cougartown. :-)

Matthew MacFadyen...Swoon. I should really watch Ripper Street.

Buffy and X-Files are my favorites <3 Love love love them. I could watch over and over and never get bored. I honestly don't watch very many current TV shows. I only have Netflix (not even basic channels on the tv), so I stick with shows I can binge watch :)
