Kaelah asked this:
So, my point is, What TV Shows Do You Recommend?! I like drama, romance, romantic comedies, comedies, etc. Maybe I’ll just pick back up in the middle of Entourage? Hmm… Help a girl out!
So I started answering – it’s only when I got to about the fourth show that I realised – I might need to change this into a post. (As I write this little intro thingy I’m already hitting 300 words!)
So first up there’s Doctor Who – yes I have watched every episode since it re-launched in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor and Billie Piper as the companion. Out of all three, David Tennant is my favourite of the new incarnations but so far no one quite beats Tom Baker (and the Jelly Babies!). Matt Smith is getting better thought but I think he’s a different cup of tea to Eccleston and Tennant.
Next up is Bones, I love Bones – Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz are genius together. I’m not quite as Bones crazy as some of the FanGirls on Twitter. With the fact that Hart Hanson (Creator/Writer) and Kathy Reichs (the original creator of the Temperance Brennan character) are both on Twitter there are plenty of questions asked. Season 5 just finished recently and Season 6 is due to start in the autumn (I nearly wrote Fall! What is going on there?!)
NCIS – Abby is one of my faves! She’s awesome! I wish I worked in an office where I could have my music on as loud as she does lol. McGee is cool as well – Ducky is the token English person – believe me we don’t all talk like him lol. The spin off NCIS: Los Angeles is okay but I do prefer the original, also one of the characters reminds me of Edna Mode from The Incredibles lol.
House – Hugh Laurie is just fab! He puts on such a flawless American accent that when I then hear him on TV shows and being interviewed and he speaks in his normal voice he sounds totally strange and like he’s putting on an English accent. If you want to hear more about how fab Hugh Laurie/Gregory House is – chat to Angelika
Lie to Me – Tim Roth plays Doctor Lightman runs The Lightman Group, they accept assignments from various law enforcement, reaching the truth by using applied psychology, interpreting micro-expressions, body language and nonverbal communication.
Grey’s Anatomy – This follows the lives of interns, residents and their mentors/tutors at Seattle Grace Hospital (During Season 5/6 it became the Seattle Grace-Mercy West Hospital). When I find which channel it’s on I’m going to start watching Private Practice (this was a spin off from Grey’s Anatomy, following the life of Dr. Addison Montgomery as she leaves Seattle Grace in order to join a private practice in Los Angeles.
I posted a shortened version of the above in a comment to Kaelah only then to realised that I’d missed The Mentalist. I think both Jane and Lisbon are a proper double act, I’ve read on some forums how people think that maybe there should be a bit of romance between them but I don’t think it would work – on the other hand Van Pelt and Rigsby so belong together. If you saw the A episode and they have to decide whether to be together and one of them gets transferred or they break up so they can stay in the same team. Rigsby was willing to make that choice for her – sooo sweet!
Anyhoo so there is my whole post from my comment on Kaelah’s Blog.
