I used to watch a lot of television. Keyword(s): used to. I’d get excited for new shows and new seasons every Fall that I would create a little spreadsheet/calendar of premiere dates. I would typically stay on top of my shows and never really have to catch up.
I still watch a lot of television. But i’m so behind on my former favorite shows. Plus, I hate watching TV in the presence of other people. I’m anti-social like that. And I have no wifi.
The only show that I love and stayed caught up on was Pretty Little Liars and currently Game of Thrones and The Bold Type.
I’d like to catch up on shows before the new seasons start. However, I feel like I have a long way to go, especially since my Netflix queue is all over the place. Let’s take a look…
THE TOP 5. These series are a few of my all time favorite shows. Sadly all of them are done, but I’m ready to binge watch.
Glee ended two years ago. I still listen to the soundtracks and see each performance in my head. It gave me life then and it still gives me life now. I miss seeing those kids every week. I need to hear them singing new songs and covers.
Pretty Little Liars just ended back in June. I tried binge watching all the eps before the finale, but that just didn’t work out. 160 episodes to watch in two weeks was pretty impossible. But it was so nostalgic watching the pilot compared to the last few episodes. The finale was an ode to the fans.
Gossip Girl came back on my radar when two of my favorite Filipino actresses revealed they was rewatching episodes. The pilot episode gave me so many feels, but I’m still mad at how it ended.
One Tree Hill had Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush, two people I love. Unfortunately, I still need to catch up on OTH. I don’t remember ever finishing the last 2 seasons. But I did watch the finale.
The Secret Circle will always be the one that got away. When I heard of this cancellation, I was devastated. The first season left us with such a cliffhanger! I legit cried and I even participated in signing those petitions and tweeting #SaveTheCircle. Out of all the CW cancellations, this was the one that disappointed me the most. #WitchesRule
THE FAVES I NEED TO CATCH UP ON. These shows have new seasons coming soon and some even their last!
The Originals. I watched TVD to watch Phoebe Tonkin kick ass as a werewolf (She was on the Secret Circle). Then she got her own show with the Original vampire family, so I had to watch it. However, I think I stopped during season 2 or 3. It’s 5th and final season is premiering this Fall and I may wait and just binge watch after it’s done.
Once Upon A Time has many changes in the new season this fall, with several main characters leaving. There are so many twists and turns on our favorite fairytales. I’m curious to see how it goes without it’s main heroine and family, but I have to catch up on about 1 and a half seasons. But since it’s sort of a reboot maybe I don’t have to catch up…
How to Get Away with Murder. I’m on the season where they focus on “Who shot Analise?” That’s season 2 I think? HTGAWM makes me think too much. At first it was confusing with all the flashbacks, but I started to understand more and it sucked me in. In fact, it’s the only show in Shondaland I ever got into.
Orange is the New Black doesn’t have a new season coming out anytime soon, so I have a lot of time to catch up. This past season is pretty good so far. There’s so much chaos amongst the inmate takeover, I can’t wait to see who survives it.
THE SHOWS ABOUT THE SUPERHEROES. Smallville was my favorite show growing up, so to see the following shows make such an impact on their audiences is pretty amazing.
To be honest, I need to catch up a lot on these shows. I might as well start from the beginning.
Supergirl. As a fan of Superman, I was so excited for this show. I was so excited to see Supergirl’s story, not just Superman’s cousin. Honestly, when they brought Superman on the show (Tyler Hoechlin), I was kind of pissed and scared that he would outshine Kara. But anyways, Kara and her friends felt relatable. She wasn’t just this alien, she was a girl trying to figure out what she wanted in life. Also, as a Gleek, Melissa Benoist made me proud.
The Flash. I didn’t know much about Barry Gordon, other than what I saw on Smallville. I still don’t know much about him, but Grant Gustin is a dork and how can you not fall in love with him.
Arrow. Just like the Flash, the only Oliver Queen I knew was played by Justin Hartley, and I loved him. I didn’t know Stephen Amell, but I knew Katie Cassidy and I wanted to support one of my favorite CW actresses. But I fell in love with the drama and the action. What can I say? I love the brooding guys that come out of their shell. Am I talking about the right show?
Gotham. I never finished season one, but I liked what I saw in the first few episodes. We’re all used to seeing grown up, broody Batman, but in contrast, we see the future Batman as an innocent little boy who just lost his parents. However, we do see some brooding from Benjamin McKenzie. Oh how I missed that.
This isn’t my whole Netflix queue, but it’s the ones that are on the top of my list! Stay tuned for more of my list and maybe we can watch together.
