Top Ten Tuesday: Fandoms Made Me Do It!

Top Ten TuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is “Fandom Freebie — top ten fandoms I’m in, 10 reasons X fandom is the best, must have merchandise for x fandom, etc. etc.” I’m not sure I’d consider myself a member of any fandoms (maybe HP?), but I do feel like I get a closer look at them because I’m on Tumblr. I haven’t been as active lately on it as I was in the past, but Tumblr has a way of pulling you in. I’ve shipped couples from shows I’ve never watched, been supportive of characters I’ve never heard speak, and reblogged a gif set or two from movies I have never seen just because they looked so good. So this week I thought I’d list T.V. shows and movies I’ve watch because of fandoms on Tumblr. Excuse all the gifs, but that’s how we roll on Tumblr.

1. Teen Wolf – I binge watched the first few seasons of Teen Wolf last year because Tumblr got me all hooked on Stydia. I shipped Stiles Stilinski and Lydia Martin before I even knew who they were.

2. Poldark – I’m a sucker for period dramas and Poldark just kept popping up on my feed, so I had to watch it.

3. Brooklyn Nine-Nine – I am actually still catching up on this show, but I love it so much and can’t believe I’ve been missing out all these years.

4. Pitch – I need more of this show now! I didn’t watch this one because I’m really not into baseball, but Tumblr in its wisdom kept putting this show in my path. I gave in and I’m so happy I did.

5. Parks & Recreation – This show has become one of my favorites. You know those shows you reach for when you’re feeling kind of down, Parks & Rec is mine.

6. The Get Down – This show is amazing. If you have Netflix and you haven’t watched it, do it!

7. Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries – This show is so much fun. I aspire to be like Phryne Fisher when I’m older.

8. Chuck – I don’t know how I missed watching this show when it was on T.V., but I did end up binge watching several seasons. I kind of got sidetracked and haven’t finished it yet, but I do plan to.

9. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. – There’s something so quirky and fun about this movie and I never would have given it a shot if it weren’t for Tumblr.

10. Captain America: Civil War – Okay, so I have a confession. I’m not a huge fan of the recent Marvel superhero movies. I like them, but they aren’t high on my list of movies to watch. But I was completely bombarded with gif sets from this one and just gave in. Pretty sure this is my favorite of the recent Marvel movies.

Has a fandom ever persuaded you to watch a T.V. show or movie? Any you want to try because of all the hype you’ve seen? Let me know in the comments and be sure leave a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit.

  1. Civil War pretty good, so many characters in that one, and I’ve seen a few episodes of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and they were pretty good. I definitely need to watch more!

  2. Tumblr is the place that will get you addicted to TV shows just because of a ship! Like you, I started watching Teen Wolf because of all the gifs on Tumblr but my first ship was Lydia/Jackson and later on I began shipping Stydia! I also watched B99 and Parks & Rec because of the ships too 🙂

  3. Thank you for reminding me that I desperately NEED to catch up on Poldark. Binged the first season and LOVED it more than I can even put into words (while simultaneously crying into my ice cream). And YAAAAS Brooklyn Nine-Nine. This show is AMAZING! I love the humor and all the characters so much. Nice list!

  4. Oh my gosh I absolutely love this idea!! I know what you mean too, Tumblr makes me care about couples I have nothing to do with haha! But it also really intensifies my own fandom because I get overwhelmed with all the content and can’t. stop. reblogging. I go in phases though, haven’t been on tumblr a lot lately.

    I need to watch Poldark and Pitch. I loooove Brooklyn Nine Nine, it’s hilarious! Same with Parks & Rec- both great shows with characters that grow on you. I love characters that hve history and inside jokes too. Ahhh Civil War! Winter Soldier is still my favorite Cap movie- I love the music, the editing, the action. Tumblr has definitely made me want to try Teen Wolf and Shadowhunters even though I only thought the first book was ok. Seriously love this post!

    1. Tumblr is very powerful. I’m the same way with Tumblr and I honestly was more infested in it before Twitter, but it’s hard to keep up with both platforms. Pitch and Poldark are amazing. I hope you enjoy them! You can always tell when a comedy series is good when it’s been on for several seasons. I love Teen Wolf. It’s totally underrated and I never would have given it a shot if it weren’t for Tumblr. So glad you enjoyed!


  5. Regarding #10–Men in tight suits with abs to die for?1 I totally get it!! 😀 I’m really looking forward to binge on Dare Devil (not the Ben Affleck one, oh no, my dear)–the one on Netflix. *sigh with heart eyes*

  6. Omigosh Chuck was like my OG TV show when I had just started getting into fandom. It was actually probably my first one. It probably gave birth to my love action and comedy with a touch of romance. That gif makes me want to watch Man from UNCLE haha.
