A TV Series for Everyone


Watching a TV series is one of the things I love to do. 
Whether the series gets your heart racing, or your palms sweating, or your tears falling, or simply lets you forget the pressures of life, there's something wonderful about sitting down to relax (or not relax) and enjoying the story playing out on the screen in front of you. 
There are a huge number of TV shows these days - a crazy number, actually, that I can never hope to get to!   
But here's a list of some of the ones I've really enjoyed :)  I've purposefully chosen a large variety. 





Robin Hood is addictive watching. The acting isn't amazing, nor are the effects, and there's plenty of cheese and *cringe* moments, but it's fun and very entertaining and the characters are wonderfully colourful. It's also utterly action-packed and romantic.
(And I've sobbed through a number of the tragic scenes, so yeah...) 

Once Upon A Time is my bae at the moment. It's a beautiful blend of fairy tales and three-dimensional characters, filled with action and romance and humour. It's endlessly entertaining and magical, and *coughs* Captain Swan are my OTP <3   

Arrow has had its ups and downs, but I've really enjoyed what I've seen of it. It's jam-packed with action and romance, and hosts a rich, three-dimensional cast of characters. The acting's decent, too.  




Parks and Recreation is delightful! It's from the same producers of The Office, but it's a lot more lighthearted, easy-to-watch, and doesn't have the strong emotional core of The Office, making it a lot more relaxing.
Amy Poehler leads the brilliant cast.  

The Office is probably my favourite comedy series. Steve Carell leads the stellar cast through what is an absolutely hilarious, heartfelt, tragic, romantic, and witty journey spanning nine seasons.
The characters are excellent, so is the whole production, and The Office will make your cry from sadness as well as laughter.
(I've never watched the British series of the same name, but some of my friends have and apparently this American series is a lot more funny and lighthearted).   

Horrible Histories is wonderful. I haven't watched it for a while now, but it's based off the series of books by the same name, and it's clever, hilarious, and very informative while still maintaining an awesome level of entertainment. The acting is decent too (with some exceptions...the budget wasn't great...) and the songs are very catchy :)  




White Collar is excellent, although again - as is the case with many of the shows listed here - the first few seasons are stronger than the last ones. But it's still a witty, romantic, intelligent series packed with three-dimensional characters, and it's made me cry on a number of occasions ;)
It's addictive; and the cast is very good-looking, in case you're wondering.....

Sherlock is so, so good. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are absolutely brilliant, not to mention the tightness and intelligence of the plots, the excellent cinematography, and the well-developed characters. It's a gripping and effortlessly classy series.  

Broadchurch is spectacular. It revolves around the incident of a young boy's murder, and dives deep into the different aspects of the case: the police, the townspeople, the family, the friends, and the press. Gorgeous setting, rich, rounded characters, and a story that will keep you guessing right to the end. It's excellent.       




Cranford shines with all star cast as they bring Elizabeth Gaskell's classic novel to life. It's a brilliant series; very funny, very sweet, and very romantic and entertaining. 
English life in a quaint country town has never been more heart-warming or fascinating.  It's pure class and pure fun. 

Downton Abbey is a brilliant example of a historical drama, sprinkled with romance and action. 
I was a huge fan until about a year ago; personally I thought it went on for a bit too long and when they started killing off my favourite characters, it just wasn't the same. And I thought it became a bit too much like a soapy :(
