The Television Tag || Shows I'm trash for

Finally it is Friday and I am slowly becoming a human/non-zombie again! Just like previously I had something planned for today’s TV Friday but because I was in and out of consciousness this entire week and weekend I didn’t get a chance to get the post in a position where I would be comfortable sharing it with all of you. So what are we gonna do? We are gonna do a tag.
God save the Queen and God save the tag.
I found this tag on Kayley Hyde’s Channel on YouTube and thought it could easily be adapted to the Blogging world and as I am a self-proclaimed TV junkie, I thought it would be super fun to do! Now,  if it turns out that this tag has already been adapted to Blogs and I am just super late to the party–which lets be honest, is most of the time– then we are going to go on with life as if nothing happened and I just joined the band wagon of fun. yeah? Yeah.

1. Favorite shows?

I have so many! I love the Star Trek franchise, Battlestar Galactica, Bones, Doctor Who, Chicago: Fire, Outlander, Queer Eye, Project Runway, Roswell, Friends, America’s Next Top Model, Arrow, The Vampire Diaries (earlier seasons), and The Crown just to name a few!

2. Favorite genre?

I have a wide variety of genres I like but if you think about them they all could be considered sub-genres underneath a big umbrella. The umbrella being: drama.
I am smitten with Drama, I majored in drama. I live and breathe drama.

3. Least favourite show?

I think the show I least care for would have to be Chicago: PD.
I will watch it if, the network is doing a Chicago crossover night, but other than that I don’t really care for the storyline there nor the characters.

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

The show I probably have re-watched the most is Star Trek: Voyager, just because I have been watching this show all my life as it’s my moms favorite installment in the franchise. A time.
My favorite show to binge however is probably Friends or How I Met Your Mother. I have been known to keep those on rotate at night to help me relax after a long day.

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

I like both! I tend to dig week by week more though, just because it gives me something to look forward to in the future and it makes sure I’m not a coach potato all day, but hot damn if an episode leaves off on a cliff hanger– I want to binge the crap out of the show. I really hate being left in suspense and not knowing things; so if I am given the chance to binge, then hello couch here comes potato!

6. Favorite television characters?

Claire from Outlander is a top one because she is literally a queen and gives no shit what people say she can and cannot do. Tatiana Maslaney as all the clones on Orphan Black, Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock, and I am also pretty smitten with all of the Doctors we’ve had so far, especially Jodi Whittaker’s Doctor. A 10/10.

7. Favorite television ships?

Booth and Bones (Bones)
Jamie and Claire (Outlander)
Iris and Barry (The Flash)
Olivia and Fitz (Scandal)
Kat and Adena (The Bold Type)
Betty and Jughead (Riverdale)
Damon and Elena (The Vampire Diaries)
Athena and Helo (Battlestar Galactica)
Barney and Robyn (How I Met Your Mother)
Jane and Rafael (Jane the Virgin)
Toni and Cheryl (Riverdale)

8. Show you could never get into?

Game of Thrones. Sorry but I just didn’t get the hype and I could honestly care less about everyone in the show except Daenerys.
The 100 is also in the category of a show I could just never get into. There was just so much hype around it that I tried twice to get into it, but every time I got to episode 5 of the first season and quit. I honestly, could not connect with the characters at all or really get into the storyline for that matter, which sucks because it sounds like it would have been a time and a half.

9. Show you fell out of love with?

Station 19. It was really good up until the beginning of this current season. They ended the previous season on this huge cliffhanger and I was hooked–but when this season picked up where the last left off…it was trash (and not the good trash), everything felt inorganic– like the writers put themselves in a whole they couldn’t come out from so they threw together some shitty resolution with a fuck ton of dues ex machina.
Long story short–the show got hella dumb.

10. Cancelled too soon?


11. Guilty pleasure show?

Y’all are about to judge my life, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. My favorite guilty pleasure show is The Bachelor/ The Bachelorette. Y’all….this show is trash…but I too am trash. Every episode is a time in a half, and I honestly am here for the comedic relief that Bachelor Nation gives on Twitter every Monday night.
How could you not be here for this “quality” content? 😂😂


12. What are you currently watching?

HA! The real question is what shows am I not currently watching. But if you insist, here is a list of the all the shows I am watching.
Buffy: The Vampire Slayer (Hulu)
3% (Netflix)
Chicago: Fire (NBC)
The Bachelor (ABC)
Outlander (Starz)
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Fox/Hulu)
Santa Clarita Diet (Netflix)
Doctor Who (BBC America)
New Amsterdam (NBC)

NOTE: there is totally more shows than this, but this is what I can remember at the moment.

    Thank you so much for the tag! I’m probably doing this next month. I totally get what you’re saying about TVD. Season three was it’s prime time and I wish I could delete most of s5-6 and ALL of s7 from my poor brain.

    1. sammers65

      January 11, 2019 at 10:18 am

      Season three was A1 Steaksauce! And I refuse to believe that s7 even exists. LOL

    Sorry to hear that you didn’t really like The 100. I agree though. The first season is a bit difficult to warm up to, but after getting through that, it’s now one of my favorites 😁

    I know about Booth and Bones only through my mum, she watches that haha. And yes to Delena *throws the confetti* also thanks for the tag partner in crime, we putting this on the mountain pile hehe
    Buffy is everything, my parents also watch Chicago: PD and Chicago: Fire. Honestly I much preferred Chicago: Fire. I sorta got bored with PD but I rarely watch them now :/

    I’m a huge TV junkie and we love a lot of the same shows; TVD, Outlander the most. I cant get into Game of Thrones either. It looks so intimidating. I tried watching The 100 last summer and I just couldn’t get into it; the first season is sooo boring and slow, I almost fell asleep. Do you watch Westworld on HBO? It has Evan Rachel Wood and it’s so good! Very sci-fi and less fantasy but it has a touch of drama too.

    1. sammers65

      January 11, 2019 at 11:04 pm

      I have heard so much about west world! I may just start it this month!

    Thanks for the tag!
    My favourite genre is also drama. I’ve never watched Friends or How I Met Your Mother. Shocker, I know!
    Yes, Damon and Elena!
    I’ve never watched Game of Thrones and I’m not planning to any time soon.
    Ahh, I actually love The 100.
    I told you some my answers 😂but I’ll be sure to do this tag soon!

    1. sammers65

      January 11, 2019 at 10:41 pm

      AH! You totally should watch them! I highly recommend them if you are into sitcoms. 10/10. And honestly I don’t really see the hype with Game of Thrones, like yes the cinematopgraphy, graphics and acting are really good, but other than that? I’m like meh. lolololol.
      Can’t wait to see your answers! <3

    Helo and Athena <3
    I love this one, thanks so much for tagging me in it and I am glad you are starting to feel better finally! I am almost a real human myself and it's been a time.

      January 11, 2019 at 10:32 pm

      AH! YAY TO FEELING BETTER!!!!!! <3

  9. Isabelle @ BookwyrmBites

    January 11, 2019 at 7:41 pm

    YES YES YES to Booth & Bones and Kadena!!! and to Brooklyn Nine-Nine 😍 personally I love/hate The 100 because they seem to reinvent the show every season – I may not watch the new season since the last one ended with decent closure and one of my favorites has been written off (died) 😭
    I haven’t had much time to watch anything since the end of last summer break, but thanks for the tag!

    1. sammers65

      January 11, 2019 at 10:57 pm

      Yes!!!!! 😍😍😍😍 I love love love booth and bones! Kadena has mah heart ❤️
      Oof low key glad I dropped the 100 then. Can’t stand a show that doesn’t have consistency when it suppose to have it.

    I really liked The 100 when I started it but I fell out of love with it after season two. The characters kept making such stupid decisions. XD

    Lovely post! I love Friends too. Whenever I am bored, I just switch on the TV, put on Comedy Central and hope it is coming! I must have watched the show at least 5 times over. And I agree with Bachelor/Bachelorette being my guilty pleasure, there’s just something about it that keeps me watching it :joy:
    AND YES YES YES to Jane and Rafael, I just started the fourth season (it just came on the India Netflix!!!!) so I hope that everything works out in their favour by the end of this season, or at least the end of the 5th season.

    1. sammers65

      January 14, 2019 at 10:54 am

      It’s a good time passer for sure! 😂 The bachelor/bachelorette lulls you in with the melodrama, like it’s annoyingly addictive lol 😂. Jane and Rafael 4ever!

      1. Jayati

        January 15, 2019 at 7:25 am

        I know! I can’t wait for Jane the Virgin season 5 especially with that last cliffhanger! I JUST NEED MORE.

    Aaaaah I just love TV. I watch….a lot. A LOT.
    Battleship Galactica is one of my all time favorite shows too!!!! Though my main ship was and will always be Starbuck/Apollo.
    And I. Love. The Bachelor! Like Mondays my twitter feed is all Bachelor related as we collectively descend into the madness.

    You ARE drama, Sammy Sam. But you are good drama. You are an amusing drama that brings joy.
    I really should get back into TV, but I’m usually too busy procrastinating TV and other things, so there’s that. I’m currently watching Meteor Garden though? Kind of?

    1. sammers65

      January 14, 2019 at 10:58 am

      Lol, *bows* I try I try
      And that counts!!!!

    I love these tags because we all get to fangirl over common tv shows and characters that we normally wouldn’t be able to do. I don’t even know where to begin since we have a good handful of shows we both watch! All the “popular” shows aside (like Doctor Who and Flash, both of which I also love), I had no idea you watched New Amsterdam!! It’s such an unrealistic, full-of-happy-feels kind of show, but I am loving it lol.
    P.S. I am stealing this tag! Hope you don’t mind!

    1. sammers65

      January 15, 2019 at 10:01 am

      I don’t mind at all! Haha! I love New Amsterdam <3 its the medical fantasy of the century lol
