I don’t have much of anything scheduled today, and after I’m done writing the blog, I want to go watch TV, so this has inspired me to tell you guys my top 5 TV shows. Including short Google descriptions of each, in no particular order, here they are;
• Teen Wolf
“The high-school anonymity Scott McCall was trying to break free from couldn't have happened in a more mysterious, complicated way. While walking in the woods one night Scott encounters a creature, is bitten in the side, and his life is forever changed. Is he a human or a werewolf? Or a little bit of both? Controlling the strange urges he now feels is the toughest part, and he's afraid the urges could end up controlling him. Will the bite be a gift or a curse, especially as it relates to the mischievous Allison, whom Scott can't get enough of?”
Teen Wolf is HILARIOUS (Love you Dylan O’brien!), smart, dramatic, and every guy in it is really hot. I have no complaints.
“Oscar-nominated actor William H. Macy stars as Frank Gallagher, a single father of six who spends much of his free time drinking at bars. The Gallagher children -- led by oldest daughter Fiona (Emmy Rossum), who takes on much of the child-rearing responsibility due to her mother's absence -- manage to raise themselves in spite of Frank's lack of parenting and unusual parenting style when he does choose to act like a father.”
Shameless is also hilarious, and raunchy too. My favorite thing about it is the family dynamic between the characters, what with the main family of the show having 6 kids in it. Gallaghers for life!
• The Secret Life of the American Teenager
“A drama about the ways a teen pregnancy affects the lives of close-knit friends and family members. When Amy finds out she's pregnant after a fling at band camp, she faces a number of challenges. Her decisions have far-reaching effects on her family and friends, but Amy also learns that most teens in her school have issues they must deal with.”
The Secret Life of the American Teenager is also really dramatic, which I LOVE, and focuses on teen characters and problems, which I think are interesting.
• Gossip Girl
“High school is over for the privileged former students at an exclusive prep school on Manhattan's Upper East Side, but Gossip Girl still shares text-messaged scoops on scandals and heartache. As the graduates embark on their futures, with some attending college and others focusing on burgeoning careers, Gossip Girl continues to stir the pot and feed any potential scandals. And still the identity of Gossip Girl remains a mystery.”
As you can guess, I really like super dramatic shows, and Gossip Girl is no exception. What’s special about this one is that it’s so glamorous! Even though the characters on the show get into a lot of trouble, the look like a million bucks while doing, so I enjoy it a lot.
• Girl Meets World
“From 1993 to 2000, viewers followed the relationship of Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence-Matthews on "Boy Meets World." More than a decade later, the couple's daughter, Riley, is trying to navigate her 'tween years -- and problems that go with them -- especially in regard to bonds with family and friends. At John Quincy Adams Middle School in Manhattan, Riley finds being a student more difficult because her dad is a history teacher there, and she's in his class. Her mom, a lawyer, is involved in her social life and owns a trendy teen hangout. Among Riley's classmates are best friend Maya, crush Lucas, and quirky Farkle, son of Cory and Topanga's peer Stuart Minkus.”
Girl Meets World may be a “kids’” show on Disney Channel, but the lessons about growing up and living life that it imparts to its viewers are important for people at any age.
