I watch a lot of TV. Always have done. I enjoy the escapism that a really good TV show brings. Whether I’m sitting doing some knitting, doing some chores or pottering about, I quite often have a box set on the go. (These days, I much prefer to watch a box set than watch something on TV. Adverts annoy me a lot!) When thinking of this post, I wasn’t sure whether to do a top ten, must-see shows or just my favourites. So I wrote some down and the list grew & grew! So here, in no particular order, are some of the best TV shows I’ve seen.
Out of these, The Wire & The Sopranos are pretty epic and well worth the watch if you haven’t seen them already. Some of them, such as House & Lost, start great but lose it a bit in the middle. I even found the endings disappointing, which is really annoying after you’ve vested so much time in a series! I’ve included both versions of The Killing, as I really liked the American one too. Glad to see it’s been given another (and final) series on Netflix.
Another thing that really, really annoys me is when a series starts off on regular TV, becomes a massive hit, and is then bought by Sky. We don’t have a Sky TV subscription, as we can’t afford it, so we miss out on a lot of series, which is another reason why I’m such a big fan of the box set.
What do you think of my suggestions? Are there any that you think should be included?
