THE TELEVISION TAG

I love that a there’s a tag that exists that lets me talk about TV Shows! I watch them as much as I read, if not more at sometimes. This awesome tag was created by Kayley Hyde and if this tag looks like something you’d be interested in, then consider yourself tagged!

❊ ❊ ❊ ❊ ❊ ❊

1. Favourite Show?

There are so many so to keep it simple I’ve categorised this question into current ongoing series and completed tv series.

Ongoing Series:

  • The Flash
  • Stranger Things
  • Brooklyn Nine-Nine
  • Rick & Morty
  • How To Get Away With Murder
  • Big Little Lies

Completed TV Series:

  • Charmed: Specifically seasons 1 through to 7. I haven’t actually watched season 8 properly where Billie is introduced as I wasn’t that interested in her character. I’m pretty faithful to the P3.
  • Veronica Mars: Seasons 1 and 2 are specifically my favourite. Something about season 3 never spoke to me as a young adolescent. But maybe upon rewatching as an adult I’ll have different opinions.
  • Parks and Recreation: I love every season except season 7. I almost hate season 7.
  • Falling Skies: Specifically seasons 1 to 3, my interest in the series dwindled as Spielberg left his role as executive producer. (This article sums up my thoughts.)
  • Heroes

2. Favourite Genre?

I think I gravitate towards shows with fantasy or science fiction elements.

3. Least Favourite Show?

Of the shows I watch, I’m really salty about Parks and Recs season 7. I felt as if no effort was put in to create a fun and innovative final season and all the characters felt like caricatures of themselves.

4. Most re-watched show OR favourite show to binge watch?

Definitely shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Parks and Recs or Rick and Morty cause they’re so short in length and easy to re-watch!

5. Do you prefer watching things week-by-week or binge-watching?

I 100% prefer week-by-week! I don’t like the pressure of having to catch up on too many episodes, it feels like homework that way. I also don’t have the willpower to stop binge-watching shows (like Stranger Things) and it honestly turns me into the most unproductive person.

6. Favourite Television Character(s)?

  • Cisco Ramone (The Flash)
  • Annalise Keating (How To Get Away With Murder) 
  • Piper (Charmed),
  • Veronica (Veronica Mars)
  • Madeline Mackenzie (Big Little Lies)
  • Most of the characters from Brooklyn Nine-Nine

7. Favourite Television Ship(s)?

  • Jake and Amy (B99)
  • Holt and Kevin (B99)
  • Leslie and Ben (Parks and Recs)
  • Piper and Leo (Charmed)
  • Clarke and Lexa (The 100) (I was hardcore Clarke x Bellamy during season 1)

8. Show(s) you could never get into?

Outlander… The time travelling aspect was really interesting in the beginning, which is what hooked me. From then on I just could not emotionally invest in the characters whatsoever.

Also Shadowhunters. I mostly enjoyed The Mortal Instrument books, but there were some changes I didn’t agree with in the show. (Especially when the books did it better!)

9. Show(s) you fell out of love with?

  • Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (midway through season 2)
  • Once Upon A Time (midway through season 3)
  • Orphan Black (after season 2)
  • The Fosters (midway through season 2)
  • The Vampire Diaries (after season 3)
  • The 100 (early on season 4)

10. Cancelled Too Soon?

  • Veronica Mars: Whilst I wasn’t the biggest fan of season three (wasn’t bad, but nowhere as good as season two in my opinion) and I will be forever disappointed it didn’t get a chance to reprieve itself after that. The movie was okay, but not as satisfying as a couple more seasons would have been.
  • Heroes: Upon reading articles about its cancellation I can understand how interest in viewers waned, but I loved it as a young adolescent.
  • Primeval: This show was so good and satiated my dinosaur/animal/creature obsession I had.
  • The Red Band Society: Only cancelled after it’s first season, which was disappointing. It had a great cast of characters that had really good chemistry.

 

11. Guilty Pleasure Show?

I don’t really feel guilty about things that make me happy, but I acknowledge that Riverdale isn’t very good, however I’m totally obsessed with the characters and love it.

Fictional Jobs I’d Want to Have

This topic took a little more time than expected, but I loved having to brainstorm about some of my favourite fictional worlds and the jobs relative to them. I largely selected jobs based on what I think I’d enjoy and what looked to be a lot of fun.. but I do think I eventually complied a list of jobs that I would both enjoy and be (relatively) good at!

1. Shadowhunter (Inspired by Isabelle Light from Shadowhunters TV Series)

I stopped watching Shadowhunters for a while as I was pretty unsatisfied with where the show was going. But yesterday I picked up from where I left off early on in season two and absolutely binged watched all the episodes. Essentially this rekindled my love for the show and primarily for Isabelle because to me, she is what makes being a Shadowhunter look like fun.

2. Oompa Loompa (Inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) 

It probably makes me a pretty bad vegan to say I’d like to be an Oompa Loompa… but I don’t think I’m in any minority when I say food and theme parks are some of the many things that I love. To combine the two and have it be my day to day job to experiment with sweets would be pretty epic.

3. Meta-Human CSI Expert (Inspired by Julian Albert from The Flash TV Series)

I thought long and hard about a ‘fictional job’ actually existed within The Flash world, because a lot of the main characters actually have jobs that are rooted within the real world. But alas – thanks to Julian Albert (a new character in S3) I have found my way into Team Flash! Although it would be awesome to be a meta-human expert, I was trying to find a job in this universe largely so I could work with all the characters on Team Flash.

4. Dragonologist (Inspired by Charlie Weasley from The Harry Potter Series)

I really think this goes without explanation!

5. Dinosaur Researcher (Inspired by Owen Grady from Jurassic World)

Simiarly to a Dragonologist, being a Dinosaur Researcher would be equally exciting (perhaps Dinosaur Researcher more so because the Jurassic Park franchise was my first favourite series ever.) I love animals and have thought about working in an industry that relates to animals… dinosaurs and dragons would suit me perfectly!
