30-Day Blog Challenge: Day 3–Watching the Small Screen!

Let’s give it up for the television.  Otherwise known as the telly, the idiot box, the small screen, the boob tube, and the instant babysitter!!!

Today’s blog challenge is to name my favorite television shows.


This is probably easier than narrowing down my favorite movies, but I’m not sure how far back I’m supposed to go!  I mean, I suppose I could tell you how I watched Bugs Bunny and the Jetsons, but really and truly loved Dungeons and Dragons the most.  Or how I had a slight obsession with hurrying home after school so that I could catch the last half of General Hospital or Santa Barbara (I never made it home for the first).  I remember watching Dark Shadows when I was pretty young.  I also remember being terrified, but having to watch it again the next day!  A few months ago I tried to relive my youth and watch it again.  It was so cheesy!!

I could probably go on like this for a long time, so I think I will try my best to narrow it down.  I honestly hate to say which shows I like best, because they generally get cancelled when I like them.  Heck, some of them are already cancelled, so I guess it doesn’t matter!!  (Please note:  That One Mom is an Amazon Affiliate and clicking on any of these links will take you to their website.  Any purchases via Amazon Affiliate links provide commission to us at no additional cost to you.)

Here is my list of favorite past and present television shows (in no particular order):

Chuck.  This was an absolutely fabulous t.v. show, with some hilarious actors and lots of spy stuff.  I really like spy stuff!  Best show ever. Poof.  Gone.  Cancelled.
Charmed.  I like witches…they enchant me.  Teehee.

Angel.  The only thing better than a vampire with a soul is a gorgeous vampire with a soul and great hair.  Plus, awesome theme music.

Fringe.  Totally gross sometimes, but Pacey (Joshua Jackson) from Dawson’s Creek was in it and the character of Walter made the show fabulous.

Dawson’s Creek.  (While it’s on my mind!)  Teenage angst at its finest.  Even my husband watched this show, but I’m not sure you would ever get him to admit it!

Big Bang Theory.  Because smart people are funny.

Eureka.  I like Sci-fi stuff.

Warehouse 13.  More Sci-fi stuff and sometimes the characters intermingle with Eureka.  I find it fascinating when television shows cross paths!

Robin Hood (BBC).  We are big fans of British and Australian television shows around here.  This show is great and while watching it, my daughter developed her first celebrity crush.  Not on Robin Hood, but on Will Scarlett.  I can still hear her little voice…”But his eyes Mom, look at those eyes.”

Vampire Diaries.  Mostly because Damon is so stinking gorgeous.  But his eyes, look at those eyes!!!

The Originals.  Spin-off of the Vampire Diaries.  Actually it’s much more interesting and easier to follow!

The Greatest American Hero.  Anyone else remember this show?  Bumbling school teacher who finds an alien suit and has to learn how to use its powers?  No?

V.  The original one from the 80’s with the bad special effects.  Technically, I think it was a mini-series.  It grossed me out when their skin peeled away and you could see all of their lizardness.

Glee.  What can I say?  I’m dorky like that.

MacGyver.  Can you really make a bomb with chewing gum and a tampon??

Supernatural.  I keep trying to start at the beginning, because I get totally lost.  I’ve watched the first four seasons at least three times!

Lost…I loved this show until the ending.  Mostly because my husband, who hadn’t seen any of it up until the last two episodes, decided he needed to watch it and I needed to explain it.  GAK.

The Andy Griffith Show.  I’m a big fan of the Darlins.  And anything that reminds me of the place in North Carolina where my great-grandparents used to live.  It wasn’t Mayberry, but it was darn close!

The Goldbergs.  If you grew up anywhere near the 80’s, you will get this show.

Sleepy Hollow.  I adore this show.  My kids adore this show.  My husband adores this show.  Therefore, it will probably be cancelled before Ichabod stops the Apocalypse.

The Glades.  I like some cop shows.

NCIS.  Sort-of a cop show, but not exactly.  Still, there’s Gibbs…

Continuum.  Canadian Science fiction at it’s best.  The season one finale made me claustrophobic.

Psych.  Let’s hear it for Daboney Wilhelm and Ovaltine Jenkins!!

Haven.  Sort of sci-fi, sort of supernatural.  It’s hard to describe.


So that’s my top list of television shows that I love and could quite happily watch over and over.  Does anybody else like these shows or am I completely alone in this one??
