I heard about this show after I finished Avatar, as a big fan of that show, I was interested. I didn’t really get into this show as much. It took a while to suck me in. But Book 3 itself was outstanding enough to convince me to include it on this list. Korra’s story is a lot different to Aang’s. All three books of Avatar deal with one big overarching storyline, while each of the four books of Korra’s story have a different theme.
Welcome back to the A-Z Challenge! We’re up to K now, and also, this is my first reality show I’ve put on this list!
K is for Kitchen Nightmares (specifically the US Edition)
So my set up for this post is going to be a little different from previous ones, as it’s a reality show rather than a standard television show.
I got completely addicted to this show for a few months. I don’t normally watch reality shows, but seeing everything that went down, how some of the kitchens were run, the state they were in…it was basically a train wreck I couldn’t stop watching. I view Gordon Ramsay as a Simon Cowell equivalent, and it was fun to watch him maneuver around (and occasionally tear apart) these restaurants, owners and workers.
A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, and here we are at J. Did you sing the Alphabet song when you first read the beginning? I did. Anyway, J is for Jessica Jones! We’re nearly halfway through the alphabet now.
Sidenote, I love this image they used for the show. It’s so cool. As you can see, this is yet another Netflix backed show. What can I say, they have some amazing shows. You guys may or may not know, that I am a fan of superhero shows. I watched Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, but I lost interest. Jessica Jones is only one season so far, so it still holds my interest. Plus, it’s pretty damn good.
Let’s carry on with the A-Z Challenge. This has kind of become a pet project of mine, and I’m still having fun coming up with these shows 😀
I is for How I Met Your Mother. Okay, so this is kinda cheating, but this letter was surprisingly hard to do. It’s still in the title so I have decided that it works 😄
You may have noted that this is yet another sitcom. I told you, I love sitcoms. They’re so fun to watch and breeze through. Sometimes all you want is a light-hearted funny show after a long day at work you know? Plus, it’s got some great actors in it! Neil Patrick Harris is amazing! I would love to see him live in some kind of show some day. I will say though, I am one of the fans who was incredibly disappointed in the ending. I also just lost interest in around Season 7. The show didn’t feel as fresh anymore, and it never made me laugh anymore. But, the first 5 seasons are filled with some of the best sitcom episodes and tropes. I still love to rewatch it.
Let’s continue the random challenge I made for myself by listing television shows that I can recommend from A-Z. We’ve covered A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and now we move onto H.
H is for Bojack Horseman.
I am a fan of quite a number of the original Netflix shows. Bojack is something I decided to watch purely because it looked weird. It was also animated, and I was a bit bored with live action. Also, I found out that Alison Brie (from Community) was in it, so I wanted to have a peek at the show. I binge watched the first two season, and have recently finished the third. This show is amazing, hilarious, and weird. It does satire, pokes fun at everything, but also has incredibly serious moments, and has a very flawed main character (and supporting cast really), which makes it even more interesting.
Welcome back to the A-Z Challenge! We’ve gone from A-F. Today is G! Double G actually. G is for Gilmore Girls 😀 A show that I have rewatched more times than any other.
I haven’t rewatched the revival since binge watching it when it came out. It came out 9pm our time, and I finished watching at 4am. Thank goodness it was on a Friday night, so I was able to recover on Saturday. The revival was exciting as everyone started talking about this amazing show again!
We’ve covered A-E. I’ve figured out that I will finish this challenge/series in the middle of July. That is longer than I originally thought…Anyway F is for Firefly!!
I was struggling on this, because I am a huge fan of Futurama. I love that show to bits, but I also love Firefly. In the end, I will devote this post to Firefly, because I have watched the show in it’s entirety so many many times.
