Beyond the Books – Favorite TV Shows

Posted July 2, 2015 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Beyond the Books, Features / 40 Comments


Beyond the Book is a weekly meme hosted at KissinBlueKaren. Each week there is a new topic.

This week we are doing favorite TV shows. This is so hard for me because I LOVE TV. There are SO many shows guys.

It’s so hard to say goodbye


God I loved all these shows!

How I Met Your Mother: They were my friends. I felt part of their group. They made me laugh, cry, cringe. Although the series finale sucked ass I will still love them forever.

Friday Night Lights: I aspire to be Tammy Taylor. Was there a more perfect (but human) mother and wife?? And Coach Taylor. LOVE HIM. The kids were all great. Even when they had to replace so many. This series finale was what one should aspire to be: PERFECT.

Parenthood: From the creators of FNL, so obviously it was amazing. I cried at least once an episode. This show brought all the feels. Showed so many real life family issues (even if all condensed into one family). Again series finale: PERFECTION.

Gilmore Girls: My second show starring Lauren Graham. Because she is amazing. Lorelie was the best character. The fast talking mom and daughter duo and all the other crazy characters of Stars Hollow stole my heart (and continue to do so through reruns)

Mad Men: Don and Peggy. That is all.

Sons of Anarchy: I never thought I would love a show about a motorcycle club, but this was amazing.

Still Kicking


Grey’s Anatomy: I am not sure how this show is still on. I love it regardless. Even at its worst (um Denny as a ghost) I still watched. I will watch forever.

The Goodwife: OMG this show. So many amazing episodes and it keeps coming through season after season.

Modern Family: It is just a fun family comedy and there aren’t many good ones.

Orange is the New Black: Binge worthy. Season 2 was the best so far but I loved the past season as well. Can’t wait to see more!

Honorable Mentions

Silicon Valley, Girls, Big Bang Theory, How to Get Away with Murder, Scandal

So what are some of your favorite shows?

      Have to love Friends!! Such a classic. Oh and I hope yu keep loving OITNB – Such a good show to binge too!

      How to Get Away with Murder is some crazy shit but I love it. I am glad you are liking SOA!

  1. I loved Parenthood, and was sorry to say goodbye. I never saw Gilmore Girls when it was on TV, but watched all the seasons on Netflix.

    I also love Grey’s Anatomy and didn’t put it down in my post, as there were so many shows already! LOL

    Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

      I think the Goodwife is on Amazon Prime. They have some good shows too if you have it. And so glad you are liking OITNB – I think seasons 2 and 3 are even better than the first!

      VEEP I have caught here and there and I do like. Arrested Development is one I need to binge.

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      I binged the Goodwife last year too!! SO MANY episodes. I hate waiting every week now. I cannot wait for HTGAWM in the fall. I so want to see where it goes now. And I love that it is BSC!!

      House of Cards is one I think I need to get into. Good Wife is an awesome binge show!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Ah Game of Thrones intimidates me!! One day I will have to just hunker down and get into it!

  2. I seriously pretend that the finale of HIMYM never happened. Because that is the only way my heart can move on. Jerks. Whoever wrote that ending is a bunch of jerks.

    I haven’t really watched any of the rest of these! My current favorite (even though it’s on hiatus until MARCH, sobs) is The 100. I also like The Big Bang Theory from your honorable mentions, though it IS getting a little boring. New Girl is good too. And The Middle. I also have a soft spot for Girl Meets World 😉 I LOVED Red Band Society, but it was cancelled, such sadness!

      Total Jerks! I was so irrationally madmlike they were purposely punishing me for something. The New Girl is one I think I would love if I just watched it. SO you’re the other person who watched Red Band Society?? LOVED that show. I was super mad when it was cancelled.

      Love Friends! Who doesn’t??? OITNB!!! I tried Once Upon a Time and just couldn’t get into it but I hope you enjoy it!

  3. I marathoned How I Met Your Mother a few moths ago, and let me tell you, it is LEGEND–wait for it–DARY! So is Grey’s Anatomy, although I agree, how is it still running??? But I still watch it, so who am I to complain. I got hooked on Modern Family last year and watched every episode. It’s hilarious! But the shows I love the most are probably (nerd alert) Doctor Who, Sherlock, and anything playing on the CW, really.

      I used to watch Buffy and fell off at some point. It may be one I go back and binge!
