☮ 8 television shows you should definitely watch ☮

Untitled-1

I consider myself a rather avid fan of television shows, and sometimes I stumble upon some treasures that just really need to be appreciated more. Some are rather popular and others are underrated, but are all recommendations to watch for either a good laugh or learn an unexpected lesson with sometimes a hint of sentimentality. 

  • Scrubs– This is a medical television show that kind of just warmed my heart with its comedy and delightful characters. It’s really understandable to see the high ratings for it because the main character J.D is a naive little puppy intern and with every episode, it feels like he learns a little more about life, love, death, and other subjects as he works in the hospital. Then the other characters are just so delightful to watch as they interact in the hospital workplace and each other. It’s just heartwarming. The only thing I probably dislike about the show is that sometimes events happen in the show that aren’t real because it’s in J.D’s mind and I always get confused if it really happens or not, especially if it seems unlikely to happen.

  • New GirlRight off the bat, the cast is what keeps the show alive. From the first episode, all the characters were hilarious and everything just felt cozy. The heart and soul of the show, Jessica Day is a full-grown adult that has a childlike and naive mindset, but because of her, she finds a cozy and familiar family in her three male roommates who would do anything for her. This is another heartwarming show that have such strange adventures and situations that happen to these characters just makes this show a winner. 

  • Fresh Off the BoatEven the slightest mention of this show just makes me laugh. This show is a great comedy starting from the first ten minutes of the first episode. All the characters’ lines are absolutely hilarious and I instantly fell in love with the characters, the plot; just everything. The show features the Huang family moving from their familiar home in Chinatown, Washington D.C to a primarily white neighborhood in Orlando, Florida to support the father’s dreams to own a successful steakhouse. The show centers around the oldest son Eddie who struggles to fit in the other kids. This entire show is absolute hilarious and definitely something to watch for a laugh.

  • House of Anubis– I will agree that this show may be initially judged badly by its status as a nickelodeon show, but I absolutely fell in love with this show a while back. The characters all have their own respective personalities but sweetly tie together as a family as they all live in anubis house. this is a great show with a mix of Egyptian mythology and interesting mysteries that just unfolds puzzle after puzzle to lead to the endgame. it’s just a cast full of cute, mysterious, and totally shippable characters as well as a family that looks out for each other.  

  • Dollhouse Honestly I’m a fan of science fiction and anything else to do with dolls and robots. I know I’m weird. But this is a new favorite television show about an underground business called Dollhouse that sends out “dolls” that can have different personalities and skills for every distinct client which are often rich and influential with various intentions. I absolutely love how interesting this show is and how the “dolls” are inserted and extracted with these separate personalities but have no evidence of their original selves. You can tell I’m starting to gush about this show a lot, so I’ll just leave this recommendation here and hope you take my advice to watch this because it’s so good.  

  • Revolution I started watching this series starting from the first time the first episode was aired, and I just loved the concept of the show. It is set in the modern world, but when all the electricity stopped working, everyone had to adapt without it and everything just changed. the show features Charlie Matheson, whose father may have the key to figuring why the electricity went out permanently. Watching Revolution was just riveting, so if you like a bit of action, family, and do-or-die survival, this show is definitely something to watch. 

  • Reign– I’m usually not a huge fan of historical shows, but this one is just beautiful. Mary, Queens of Scots, lives in France and tries to maintain the political alliance between Scotland and France while trying not to get herself killed by the dangerous people in French court that want her dead. One of the many reasons I watch this show is because of two words. Adelaide. Kane. I absolutely adore her strong presence as Mary, especially when she talks. This show is a whole lot of loyalty, betrayal, love, and a bit of family as well.

  • Sabrina, the Teenage Witch– This is one of those 90s shows, but it’s still really good. Basically the show is about Sabrina as a teenage witch trying to balance her school life along with her magical powers and she deals with situations in her life that go awry. It’s still a great show with amazing characters, like Salem’s sarcastic lines and the contrasting personalities between Sabrina’s two aunts; I absolutely love them. Watch all the episodes on Hulu here.

So here are some of my favorite televisions shows and I hope you’ll like one of these shows to watch. A lot of these shows are on Hulu, Netflix, or any other websites that host these television shows online. If you like any of these, I would love to know what you like about them in the comments, and if you have any favorites of your own, I would love some recommendations as well!

!! weekly favorites !!

Untitled-1

hey, so here is my first weekly favorites! I’ve definitely been liking different music and other things this week.

  • Alessia Cara’s first EP “Four Pink Walls”- This month I went to Alessia’s concert in New York, and I absolutely loved everything. She performed the songs on her album and for each song, she had a story to tell about it. The day after the show, I immediately bought her EP and I absolutely love all the songs on it. The songs are all incredibly interesting and catchy. My favorite song would probably have to be “Four Pink Walls” or “Here”. Soon, I plan on reviewing the songs on her album and also maybe a recap on the concert, which I will link everything once I post them. I’m looking forward to new music she plans to release because she and her voice are incredibly talented. Her songs can be found on her Youtube channel here.

  • Troye Sivan’s 2nd album “Wild”- The Youtuber’s album was released this week, and it is definitely better than his first album. The six songs all have a unique beat and his music is just mesmerizing. They have all definitely rose up to the expectations of the public and mostly have a sad sort of vibe. I really love the arrangements of the different songs and you can hear them in this Soundcloud playlist here.  

  • Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” (TJR 120 bpm refix)- I know this is probably really late for me to like this song since it came out a while ago, but at Alessia Cara’s concert, one of her opening acts sang a cover of this song and I really fell in love with it. This is a remix by TJR and I just really love the quick beats. This is a perfect song to walk to if you’re in a hurry. You can hear the song here.

  • The television series Dollhouse– I found this television show by chance and took an interest in it. I’m really glad I decided to watch it because it’s absolutely so fascinating. The show has such an interesting concept that it has people whose personalities are extracted, so they’re basically “dolls”, and then given certain personalities to be put in and taken out for whatever purpose their designated client wants them for. Then, the story changes as this technology gets out of control. 

  • One Direction’s “Drag Me Down” (Acoustic Cover) by Craig Yopp- I had heard the original song once when it first came out, but I didn’t really take an interest in it. I’m not sure why, but I just thought about this song recently and tried to search it up on Soundcloud. Even though I couldn’t find any high-quality ones, I found this really great cover that’s just as good as the original one. Take a listen right here.  
  • One Direction’s “Drag Me Down” & 5SOS’s “She’s Kinda Hot” Mashup- While I was looking for a good quality version of One Direction’s “Drag Me Down”, I also found this and decided to give it a listen. Even though I didn’t really find myself attached to “She’s Kinda Hot” when it first came out, I really like this mashup because it was mixed together but it didn’t sound like it was clashing and made it sound like one song. Give it a listen here.

  • Saola’s Beat Connection (ODESZA Remix)- I already heard this song a while back, but after hearing it again in a Youtube video, I went to look for it and I just ended up replaying the song for at least a day or two. I absolutely love the beats in this song as well as the lyrics. Take a listen right here.

So here are my favorites for this week, and I hope you took a listen to all or at least one of their songs because I really love them, especially Beat Connection. If you have any songs that you’ve liked today, I would love some recommendations in the comments. Have a nice week!
