So about a year and a half ago I did a blog post with this exact same title but looking at it, I’ve realized my taste in t.v shows has kind of changed, and I’ve grown out of shows I used to love and have found amazing shows to take their place.
1. Brooklyn Nine Nine
Brooklyn Nine Nine is one of those shows that never fails to make laugh and is consistently funny and literally all of the jokes are constructed perfectly and hilarious. That’s so rare in a sitcom and literally everything about the show is perfect. The characters are all amazing and despite the fact that it’s a sitcom, it never shied away from serious topics. Also the diversity is on point and it’s one of the most unproblematic shows out there. If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend that you do: it won’t let you down.
I recently started rewatching the series and though I usually skip over eleven when I do so, I’ve decided to give him a second chance and I’m glad I did because I actually don’t hate him as much as I thought I did. But of course, ten will always be my number one. Doctor who is an amazingly unique show that never fails to amaze me. The plot is so fascinating but the characters are just as great. With so many sci-fi stories, one always seems to be sacrificed for the other but Doctor Who manages to have both a intriguing plot and complex and developed characters.
3. Gilmore Girls
Gilmore Girls is one of those shows that I think I might grow out of eventually but nonetheless it has a very special place in my heart. It’s such a funny and heartwarming show and though there are definitely some parts that piss me off, there’s something so timeless about the story. Stars Hollow is a magical town and the people in it are just as amazing. I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of Lolerai’s quick wit and I know that if I ever chose to rewatch it, I’ll fall in love with it all the over again.
4.The Good Place
THIS SHOW IS AMAZING OH MY GOD. It’s hilarious, unique and all the characters are relatable af. There’s not a single character that I hate because they’re all amazing and beautiful and though they’re flawed, they learn and it’s great. I seriously need it to come back and I can’t believe I have to wait until September. I don’t know if I’ll able to survive until then. I feel like this show is really representative of my soul and I just need a million seasons because I will never be tired of Team Coakroach.
5.The Get Down
This show never got the love it deserved and I am severely pissed. If this was a show about white people and music during the 70s in New York everyone would be all over it but the minute it’s about Black and Latinx teens everybody stays quiet. THIS SHOW DID NOT DESERVE TO BE CANCELED. This show was beautiful and amazing and had great characters and the plot was so interesting and everyone just slept on it. I will never not be pissed about what happened. This show was amazing and I will forever be bitter that people didn’t show it the love it deserved.
6.This Is Us
When I first started hearing all the hype about this show I didn’t get it at all. To me it seemed like a pretty simple show and I couldn’t understand why everyone was so emotional. But now I get it. This show is a rollercoaster of emotions and every episode is guaranteed to tear at your heartstrings. Though the concept seems simple, it is done masterfully and the way it’s constructed is really cool. The relationship between the characters are so nuanced and complicated and they’re all so wonderful and precious. This is one of those shows that actually deserves the hype it gets, as well as all the awards that this show keeps on winning.
7.One Day at A Time
This show is hilarious and beautiful and touches on so many important issues and there are so many nuanced discussions about depression and racism and coming out and I really hope it gets renewed because if it didn’t I would cry. I relate to Elena on so many levels, and I simultaneously am her and want to date her and she just deserves all the happiness in the world and I just love her so much ahhhhh. The family dynamics in this show is so great and just everything about this show is pure perfection.
I never really thought that I’d actually like this but after watching eight seasons in two weeks I can safely safe that this show is definitely one of my faves. ITS SO FUNNY OH MY GOD. Never has a show made me laugh this hard, all the jokes are on point. The characters are so funny and great and wonderful. Michael Scott is the most amazing boss ever and I love him so much. Also Jim and Pam are the cutest couple ever and definitely one of my favorite OTPS.
9. The 4400
This show is hella underrated and while it’s a tad bit cheesy, it’s so great. The concept is really unique and every single episode is really interesting. Also the characters are super dope and it’s just a really great show. It’s definitely not a perfect show by any means but it’s addictive. I’ve rewatched it like three times and I never get tired of it. I would highly recommend it and I really wish this show got more love because it’s great.
10. Veronica Mars
I fucking love Kristen Bell so much oh my god. She’s so amazing as Veronica Mars and Veronica’s just the most spunky and sarcastic character and she’s so incredibly strong. This show does not mess around and it’s a really great show. I wasn’t that impressed with the movie but I heard that they’re going to be making a mini series which I’m really excited about.
