Today’s Top Ten Tuesday with The Broke and The Bookish is all about those things we entertain ourselves with that AREN’T books – namely, series and movies.
I have to admit, I have never been a big fan of television and movies. Movies were only really a social activity for me (a.k.a. dates and girls’ nights out) and I don’t really like television. But as university is wont to do, a lot of that changed. Because what’s better than bingeing on a series when you should be studying? Also, The Boy LOVES movies, and so that is one of our activities together.
My Top 5 Television Series
1. Grey’s Anatomy
I’ll just jump right in with this one because I know I’m supposed to be “above” watching this show, but I LOVE it. I started watching it in my first year and even though there’s a whole lot of drama and a whole lot of doing-medicine-incorrectly, I still love it. I don’t know so much about season 11 though… Grey’s without Christina? I don’t know.
2. House, M.D.
Pretty predictable I guess. I didn’t like the last few seasons though. I loved it until about Season 4. Then it got… lame.
3. Under the Dome
I have only read one Stephen King book and when I heard of this mini-series, I decided to watch it rather than reading the book. It’s fantastic and awful and… I’m beyond excited for Season 2. I just hope it’s as awesome.
Okay, so I stopped watching this a few seasons in because as I so often mention, I’m a huge scaredy-cat and some things in this series are just soooo freaky. But I adore it still. And the books.
5. Orphan Black
This is my latest obsession and by far my favourite of them all – and my thanks go to the blogosphere for introducing me to this gem. Season 3 can’t come quickly enough!
Five of my favourite movies
Just a little selection of movies I don’t mind watching again and again.
1. Maleficent (2014)
Oh. My. G. YES. This was so beyond fantastic. I can’t even.
2. Bambi (1942)
The story goes that this is the first video I could watch from start to finish as a little girl, and that I always cried but insisted on watching it again and again.
3. Juno (2007)
I don’t know why, but this was a pivotal movie, that really made me grow into a better realisation of who I was and who I wanted to be. A lot of people often tell me that I remind them of Juno – except for the whole pregnant thing, that is.
4. The Great Debaters (2007)
I was on my high school debate team and this movie was just pure magic.
5.Dirty Dancing (1987)
