1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I grew up on this show, so I'm sentimental about the characters and storylines, even the cheesy ones. Buffy's a girly girl, but she kicks butt. Plus, I adore how friends & family focused these characters are. Such a great show, with some truly stellar episodes (Hush, The Body, Once More With Feeling, Becoming Pts 1 & 2, Restless, and the list goes on).
2. Veronica Mars
Witty, realistic, captivating...it's a shame it only went three seasons. The movie was nice to see, but not as good as the show. Also, am I the only Piz fan? I feel like I'm the only Piz fan.
The seasons with Grissom are gold, and I still love watching them whenever reruns are on TV. I adore the old cast, and the mysteries were always great.
Awesome characters, stories, and ideas...a show that deserved more screen time than it received.
5. Game of Thrones
The plot twists are great (or terrible, depending on the twist). That's basically the only thing that keeps me coming back, especially since characters drop like flies. It's a vicious world, but I can't stop watching.
I gave up after the 7th season, but I still love the older episodes! Very eerie, creative, and unique. The humor is always on point, and I can't remember ever being bored with the characters.
7. Orange is the New Black
I told myself I'd watch one episode, and somehow ended up watching all of season one and two. Very funny, emotional, and better than I thought it would be. The acting is fabulous, and I love how the show makes me rethink my initial reactions to each characters. There are characters who I hated in season one, and eventually, I grew to like and feel for their characters.
Sherlock!!!!!! That is all.
9. Marvel's Agents of Shield
Can you tell I'm a Joss Whedon fan? While this show is no Buffy or Firefly (and despite the very rough start), it did improve by the time the first season concluded. Plus, any show with Agent Coulson is automatically a win in my mind.
10. Teen Wolf
I used to mock this show, so much. But, after graduating this May, I decided to check out a couple episodes to see what all of the fuss was about since a few girls in one of my classes were always going on (and on) about it. The first episode didn't impress me, but I continued....and two weeks later, I was all caught up and completely loving this show. Strange how that happens!
