BOTY ’12: TV shows I’ve seen
1. Doctor Who (S7) | First aired in 1963 |
2. Misfits (S3, S4) | First aired in 2009 |
To be honest, since my favourite actor – Robert Sheehan who played Nathan – left, I haven’t enjoyed Misfits that much. But it’s still an amazing show, and Joe Gilgun (playing Rudy) is an amazing (and equally hilarious) replacement. I have yet to watch the rest of season four, but I think I am going to do that as soon as I’m done with my (annual) Doctor Who rewatch!
3. Once Upon a Time (S1, S2) | First aired in 2011 |
I haven’t really watched any American TV shows in years, but then I discovered Once Upon a Time which is basically a retelling of all the fairy tales. The one problem I have with American TV is that there are so. many. breaks. between episodes. Then you get five episode and a five month break because of reasons. And then four more episode and another three month break because of this. *sighs*
4. BBC’s Sherlock (S1, S2) | First aired in 2010 |
(This trailer is fanmade, because I couldn’t find a proper ‘official’ trailer). I fell in love with Sherlock as soon as I saw the first episode. It’s a modern retelling of the victorian story we all know so well. It is written by the headwriter of Doctor Who, which makes it even cooler! The only thing I didn’t like is that each season has three episodes (of 90 minutes each), and that there is such a long wait in between seasons. Still, I enjoyed the first two seasons and I will definitely look foward to a third season, if there is going to be one!
5. Torchwood (S1, S2, S3) | First aired in 2006 |
I knew I had to watch this show before going to Cardiff, where a lot of Torchwood was filmed (and where Torchwood actually took place). I ended up watching the first three seasons and I was mindblown. It fits in so well between the Doctor Who episodes and in between each Torchwood season there are some Doctor Who epsiodes that you could watch. If you’re a fan of Doctor Who and don’t mind a little more blood, cursing and sex, you should definitely try out Torchwood!
