Fun Facts Friday: Top Ten Favorite TV shows

I watch a very strange variety of TV shows.  Crime dramas, home improvement, cartoons, comedies... I watch an odd assortment of things.  So here are the rankings:

1.  Holmes on Homes/Holmes Inspection
I put them together because they are essentially the same show.  Mike Holmes helps out home owners who either had a bad renovation or a home inspection that didn't reveal major issues.  He rips out walls, gets rid of mold, and gets extremely indignant.  It's fantastic

2.  Doctor Who
A hot time travelling alien speeds through time and space in his blue box with a pretty woman as his companion.  He's saved the world about a million times.  I am waiting for the Doctor to come take me away in the Tardis, preferably David Tenant as the Doctor.  He's my favorite.

3.  Law and Order: SVU
SVU=Special Victims Unit.  Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson track down the criminals behind sex crimes and atrocities against children.  Always a lot of drama and sexual tension between the pair practically oozes out.  I'm still annoyed that Elliot left the show before the two of them got it together.

4.  My Little Pony:  Friendship is Magic
I know it's a kids show.  I don't care.  It's awesome and fulfills my childhood fantasies about horses and magic.  I am a brony for sure.

5.  Bones
A forensic anthropologist and her team of brainiacs fight crime by looking for evidence present on the bones.  Also, David Boreanez is a hot FBI agent who eventually gets together with Brennan, the forensic anthropologist.  It appeals to my brainy side with the science and also my romantic side with all of the little romantic sub plots.

6.  Gilmore Girls
I know it's a defunct show but Rory and Lorelei are my BFFs.  Mother and daughter live together, almost like sisters, as they struggle through all of life's challenges.  They go through their rough patches but at the end of the day, they will always support one another.

7.  Sabrina the Teenage Witch
On her sixteenth birthday, Sabrina Spellman discovers that she is a witch.  She lives with her aunts and talking cat and learns about magic and all of life's lessons.  Melissa Joan Hart is wonderful.  I cannot believe she is married and has children now.  Crazy.

8.  ER
Doctors working in a Chicago emergency room.  The crazy medical stuff they encounter is nothing compared to the insane personal drama that the young hot doctors go through.  Includes Alex Kingston and her British fabulousness and also Noah Wyle who is one handsome, handsome man.

9.  Private Practice
More medical drama where the medical stuff pales in comparison to what goes on behind the scenes  Romance, drama, and plenty of laughs.

10.  Make it or Break it
This is my most shameful entry.  Truly.  It's about gymnastics and girls trying to make it onto the 2012 Olympic team.  It's an ABC original drama so the convoluted plot is, well, convoluted.  What can I say?  I enjoy watching the gymnastics and imagining that I would be able to things like that.

I thought it would be really really hard to come up with ten shoes... and then I realized just how much TV I watch.  I could list more which is kind of crazy.  Ah well.  I read a lot of books too so I'll just pretend that makes up for it. What are your favorite TV shows?

  1. Fun list! I am a lover of all things television and I ADORE Law & Order SVU!! I will never miss a show if I come across one flipping through channels. I've never heard of Make It or Break It. It sounds like something right up my alley. I'm going to search it out! (I have no shame at all)
