So I finished the A-Z Challenge last week. I started it all the way back in early April and posted on this twice a week till mid-July. I had so much fun trying to think of what shows to recommend for each letter of the alphabet. As a wrap up post, I’m going to list all the shows I talked about!
A is for Avatar: The Last Airbender
B is for Brooklyn Nine-Nine
C is for Community

Well look at that. We finally made it to Z 😀
Z is for iZombie.
I’m going to keep this post relatively short, as while I have loved this challenge, I’m also slightly burnt out from it. I’ve been posting these twice a week for 13 weeks!! That’s over three months! I’m very happy to have made it to the end, and will not take on something like this again 😀
Anyway, iZombie is a show I fell into by accident. I don’t remember how I found out about it, but I watch CW a lot in general since all the superhero shows are on there, and this sounded intriguing.
Here’s the premise. Liv is a medical resident who decides to go to a party which ends up getting attacked by zombies. Are you hooked already? Anyway, Liv ends gets scratched and ends up a zombie. However, she is still determined to pass as a regular human, despite her super pale appearance, and general apathy (being dead tends to make you lose interest in things). She ends up working at a coroner’s office where she can secretly snack on fresh human brains (she puts them in things like smoothies or sandwiches). This also means she takes on traits of the brains she snacks on (as well as memories), which allows her to pretend to be a psychic and help out a detective solve crimes (specifically murders).
This show is silly, fun, and reminds me a little of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The perfect mix of horror, drama, and comedy. I really recommend checking it out!
Let’s end it on some random gifs!
Anyway, I’m keen to know if anyone else has watched this show? Or heard of it? 😀
I plan to post one more time next Tuesday to do a little wrap up and masterpost of this A-Z Challenge, cause I am super proud that I managed to get it done!
Alright, so this is gonna be interesting to see who watched this show, and who has no idea what I’m talking about. Also, second to last letter, we’ve almost made it through the whole alphabet!!
Y is for Yu-Gi-Oh!
So this is one of the animes that I was absolutely obsessed with when I was younger. I watched this whole series as a kid, and got very invested in all the goings on of the show. I also love this:
It’s basically a meme now. Okay, how do I explain this show..
A shy high-school student named Yugi Moto receives the fragmented pieces of an Egyptian artifact, known as the Millennium Puzzle, from his grandfather. When Yugi reassembles the puzzle he is possessed by the 3,000-year-old spirit of an ancient pharaoh. Yugi and his friends Joey, Tea and Hondo protect the puzzle, which contains powerful secrets many people would like to possess.
That’s from it’s Wiki. It doesn’t even talk about the cards. Anyway, the gist is that everyone plays this game called Duel Monsters. You have a deck full of monsters, traps, spells and such and you fight against another player. You have a certain number of lifepoints, and when they reach zero, you’re ‘dead’ and you lose the match. They link this game to lots of ‘Shadow Realm’ things where the monsters and matches become a lot more real. Look, it’s complicated to explain, but its one of the most well-known animes, along with Pokemon and DragonBall Z.

Thanks for sticking with me through the A-Z Challenge. We’re so close to the end!!
X is for X-Men: Evolution
This is another show I remember loving and watching when I was younger. This series ran from 2000-2003, so for 9-12 year old me, this was my show. This caught my interest, because we saw the first X-Men movie in the theatres, not long before this first came on television. I have pretty much always been into superhero things it seems.
Continue reading “X-Men: Evolution”
Two weeks left! This show is another reality one, or to be more technical, it’s a comedy improv show.
W is for Whose Line is it Anyway.
I watched this show a lot growing up. It was always on at some point or other, and often we’d watch it together. After it was off tv, and I discovered YouTube, I found it again. I’ve binged a lot of clips of it on over time.
Continue reading “Whose Line is it Anyway?”
We’ve made it to V on the A-Z Challenge! Two more weeks left 🙂
V is for Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Buffy is often credited as one of the greatest shows of our time. It is a blast to watch, the writing and acting is amazing, and was also the one who started the trend of having a musical episode (Once More With Feeling), amongst other stand alone amazing episdoes (Hush, Zeppo, The Body…) It’s just such a fun show, and I get sucked in. It’s reached cult status since first coming out in 1997, and has produced lots of spin-offs, merchandise, and is often studied and parodied in popular culture.
Also, it has a fun opening theme.

We’ve made it to U! Can you believe we’re up to the 21st letter now?
U is for Ugly Betty.
Ugly Betty is a show I remember watching back in the mid 2000s. It wasn’t spectacular, but it was entertaining. It’s also the only show I could think of for this letter, there is surprisingly not much shows that start with U.
Continue reading “Ugly Betty”
The A-Z Challenge continues as we slowly drift to and end.
T is for Adventure Time.
Adventure Time is an amazing, surreal show. My husband is actually the first one who introduced me to this show back in 2011. It’s a strange show for sure, but underneath all the strangeness it has got a lot of depth. It also has many characters, in a fantastic crazy world, and has also been known to do some gender bending episodes.
Continue reading “Adventure Time”
Here we are at S! We’re reaching the final few weeks of this challenge!
S is for Stranger Things
Another Netflix show! This show alone makes me think our subscription to Netflix was totally worth it. Rory and I absolutely love this show! We got sucked in and binge watched as much as we could in between sleep and work. We finished it in a few days, and watched the last four in concession as we couldn’t bear not knowing what happened next. This show has so much hype around it, but unlike so many, it’s definitely warranted. Stranger Things is a must to watch if you have even a faint interest in sci-fi, fantasy or thrillers, especially if you love 80s movies, as this has a lot of throwbacks to it (Oh my god the synthesizers!)
Speaking of, let’s listen the opening theme.
