Top Ten Tuesday: Five Shows I’ve Been Enjoying Lately

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Bingeworthy TV Shows/Movies.” I love when you get to talk about something other than books. I think we define each other so much by the books we read and often bond over them, but I know we all have a lot of other things in common as well. Like television shows. I know many of us watch the same shows and it’s just another way for us to bond. Here are a few shows that I’ve been really into lately.

1. Brooklyn Nine-Nine (FOX/NBC) – This show is my happy place. It’s the one I reach for when I want to just sit down and enjoy something. I was so heartbroken when I heard that it had been canceled and then over the moon when I found out another network had picked it up. I’m really hoping we get more than one more season. Also, at any given moment I am either a Rosa or a Amy. You’ve been warned.

2. The Good Place (NBC) – I unexpectedly fell in love with this comedy. I was pretty much hooked after the first episode. I know making television shows is hard, but I so wish the seasons for this one were longer. It always feels like we just got started right before the season is about to end. I love when you watch a show and can’t quite decide who your favorite is because you love everyone so darn much. Really eager to know what they do with these characters in season three. Currently rewatching the first two seasons over and over until it premieres.

3. The Expanse (SyFy/Amazon) – I started watching this science-fiction show on Amazon Prime Video and before I knew it, I was finished with the first season and rushing to watch the second before the third premiered on SyFy. This show almost broke my heart as well as it was canceled and then picked up by Amazon. Can’t wait for more.

4. Anne With an E (Netflix) – I am so charmed by this Netflix adaptation of Anne of Green Gables. I know a lot of people complained that it was way too dark in comparison to the book, but I personally love the fresh new look. Anne is just as dreamy and unreasonable as ever. I have one episode left to watch in the second season, but I’ve been saving it because who knows how long I will have to wait for the third season.

5. Orphan Black (BBC America) – Please, no spoilers, as I am still working my way through all the episodes. I really like the concept for this one and with each episode I watch, I grow more and more impressed with Tatiana Maslany. I marvel at all the different hats she wears. Though it doesn’t make much sense to me, Alison is my favorite so far. She’s so uptight and I love her.

Are you a fan of any of these shows? What’s a show that you just started watching this year? Let me know in the comment and be sure to leave a link to your own TTT post.

  1. Orphan Black is the best- I loved that show and miss it. I hope you enjoy binging it! I need to get back to The Expanse- I watched the first few episodes when it first came out but haven’t watched any since. also Anne With an E sounds cute and fun.

  2. I haven’t had a chance to watch any of these. I think the last TV show I watched was The Americans… although I just got through the first season. Anne with An E is popular and I love the books, but I just have trouble sitting down and paying attention to TV shows.

  3. I am somewhere in the middle of Anne With An E also. I liked it at first and then cooled on it. We’ll see if I pick it up. I decided not to participate this week. No one wanted to see my list of Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Chris Hayes…etc. Ha!

  4. So many greats shows on here that I need to get to! I’ll need to remember some of these for the next time I’m in a binge-watching mood 🙂 Especially The Good Place and B99, I know I’ll probably enjoy those two the most once I get around to them!

  5. I like Anne With An E because it uses what’s great in the books and makes it it’s own thing. You get real commentary on puberty, romance, sacrifice, and the gay/lesbian community. There are lots of surprises, whereas the old BBC version follows the book, and I love it for that reason.

  6. I 100% agree with you on Brooklyn Nine-Nine! I watched the whole of season 4 when it was first made available on Netflix in my country, but we don’t have season 5 yet and I’m getting withdrawal symptoms 😂

  7. I love Brooklyn 99! I’m so glad it got picked up by another network. I loved the twist in The Good Place’s season one finale, but I wasn’t as impressed with what they did with it in season 2. And Orphan Black! Sometimes the episodes were hit or miss for me, but for the most part I really loved it Tatiana is AMAZING! There were many times I forgot that it was the same actress playing all those characters.

  8. I have actually watched all the shows you wrote about except The Expanse and Anne with an E.

    So happy about Brooklyn 99 not getting cancelled thanks to NBC!

    Love The Good Place, the Season One Finale had one of the most epic twists in all of TV history!

    Orphan Black was such a great series. That’s all, no spoilers, LoL.

    I just finished The Good Wife. Still in denial that there are no more episodes =(.

      1. Totally agree!

        I wrote an article a little while ago on my blog about my hopeful Emmy nominations and I so gave a spot to The Good Place. Bummed it didn’t get a nomination for the show cause it’s just so original and probably the most ambitious story line for a series I’ve seen in awhile. Every episode still manages to be able to surprise you. Glad to see another fan of the series along with Brooklyn 99 and Orphan Black.
