Television | My Latest Series #1

"If it weren't for electricity, we'd all be watching television by candlelight."
George Gobel

Today's post is pretty self explanatory! Here are five of the latest additions to television shows I've been watching. I really recommend most of these shows and if anyone wants to fan girl over any of them with me then you know where to find me!

Beauty & The Beast


If you haven't watched the CW's Beauty & The Beast then seriously, what are you doing with your life? This show is amazing and it's been a while since a show like this has gotten me so completely hooked from the first episode. I'd say the last time was probably The Vampire Diaries. I binge watched the first two seasons on Netflix in about a week. It has an amazing cast. Kristen Kreuk is flawless and a joy to watch and Jay Ryan, well... I just about flood my basement every time he's on screen. And their on screen chemistry is off the charts. I can't recommend this show enough and I eagerly look forward to season 3! Also, here's another couple of Jay Ryan gifs for good measure. He even makes eating a sandwich look hot.


Looking


I am IN LOVE with Jonathan Groff so I just had to watch Looking. How I would describe Looking is Queer As Folk if Queer As Folk's main character was Michael instead of Brian. I know Michael was a main character but you know what I mean. Also, there's no lesbian couple but instead there's a fag hag! (Is that PC?) I loved her! To be honest the cast is overall amazing and I loved all the characters. If you like LGBT themed shows you'll love this. However the LGBT theme isn't the only reason I liken it to QAF. This show is definitely a 18+ due to quite graphic sex scenes. It was a little weird seeing Jesse from Glee and the voice of Kristoff from Frozen having butt sex but I got used to it. It's sad this show only got two short seasons but they're making a feature length episode or something to round it up I think. So I'm looking forward to that at least. 

 My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic


I'm pretty late to the party with this one. I've always loved My Little Pony. I collected them when I was younger and even presented my collection at Brownies for a badge. However, I never really watched the television series even though I knew how popular it was. Admittedly I don't watch that much animation anymore. However my sister started watching it recently and she got me hooked! I'm looking forward to watching more of it. 

The 100

Okay, I know I said I hadn't been hooked on any shows like this as much as I was hooked on The Vampire Diaries until I watched Beauty & The Beast but I guess that's not strictly true. I was and still am completely hooked on The 100, which I watched just before BATB. This is an amazing show and yet another awesome cast. I'm a little bit in love with Eliza Taylor. Loved her in The Sleepover Club, Neighbours and now this! Does the CW make any bad shows? I think the only reason Beauty & The Beast possibly pips this to the post is there is no romantic coupling I'm really drawn to in The 100 as of yet. And I love a good ship. Possibly because I've been single too long. And Cat and Vincent are quite a couple. Still, The 100 is an amazing show and I'm looking forward to the future seasons. 

 Supernatural


Okay, I'm beyond late to the party with this one but I'm finally watching Supernatural! I don't know why it's taken me so long. I guess possibly because the fandom is so big I was slightly put off. I know that makes no sense. Sometimes when you've heard so many awesome things you feel like there's a certain pressure to like it as much. Or something. ANYWAY, I have to admit it's taking me a little while to get into it. I'm not as instantly hooked but I've been assured it gets better. It's probably better I'm not as hooked because there's so many episodes to watch I could seriously lose a couple of weeks if I ended up binging on it. It would not be good for my health. So right now I'm working my way through slowly. I'm still on season one. I'm looking forward to watching more!
