TOP TEN TUESDAY: Top Ten Favourite TV Shows of All Time

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature run by BrokeAndBookish each week. This week, in honour of Fall TV you can do a top ten about anything TV related. So I’m keeping it simple and sharing my ten favourite TV shows ever. I say “ever” but I’m pretty bad at keeping up with TV shows and some of these I might not have actually seen the entire series and I’m sure as soon as I finish this list I’ll remember a show I’ve forgotten but otherwise here’s my favourite TV shows.

White Collar
I love heist and con-artist stories so White Collar is right up my street. White collar criminal Neal Caffery gets offered to serve his jail time working for the FBI catching criminals with FBI Agent Peter Burke and lots of escapades happen. While it does get a little repetitive that the main story arc each season often revolves around Neal lying to Peter and Peter lying to Neil, I still love the relationships between all the characters and I love it when Neal’s criminal friend Mozzie and Peter’s awesome wife Elizabeth get involved in an FBI sting.
Please note: I have a series and a half left of this show to watch.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
I basically marathoned season one and two of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in just over a week and I loved every minute of it. I love the characters, all the different relationships, the humour and how the characters actually grow. I’ve written before why I love Brooklyn Nine-Nine and I would recommend it to anyone, even those who are like me and don’t usually like American comedy shows.
Please note: I haven’t watch season three yet because Netflix doesn’t have it yet.

This show can scare the bejesus out of me – the scene where a guy crawls from under a woman’s bed after she’s just gotten into it freaked me out – because it has gruesome murders and serial killers. It also has a great baddie in Alice Morgan and her relationship with Luther is a highlight of the series. (more…)

G is for Cat Grant

cat grantI’m seriously behind with watching Supergirl but Cat Grant was one of the first characters I fell in love with on the show. She’s a working mother who is also CEO of her own company, CatCo Worldwide Media, which she built from scratch – in many ways she’s like white feminist goals.

Cat may seem brash and dismissive of her employees, especially her assistant Kara Danvers aka Supergirl, but she’s shown to have a softer side and when people show they are capable and do a good job she notice’s and give credit where it’s due.

I like Cat Grant so much because she’s a smart business woman who has had to work her way up through the ranks in order to really make her mark on the industry. I admire her for that and especially because she’s a high-ranking person in a male dominated industry. She stands by Supergirl and often give Kara pep-talks that may seem a bit mean but are also motivational. The scene in Red Faced where Cat takes Kara out for drinks after Kara shouted at her is great because she talks to Kara like a person and explains why you can’t get angry at work, and that especially a woman can’t get angry, and you have to figure out what’s making you angry and then deal with it. It’s a great scene and a really important moment.
