My Top 5 TV Shows

If there's one thing university students love (well other than class being cancelled and free food), it's Netflix. I have five shows I'm very much in love with right now, but I'm always looking for new ones. I love talking about TV shows so I thought that I would share my faves with you!

Once Upon a Time

I was very much late to the game with watching Once Upon a Time. I didn't start the show until the second season was airing when my friend Maggie finally convinced me to give it a try...by showing me lots of pictures of Captain Hook. (Seriously, look him up.) Once Upon a Time is basically a strange combination of lots of fairy tales, set in modern-day Massachusetts. My favorite thing about it is how none of the characters are completely good or bad...and my number one OTP #CaptainSwan.

Reign

Reign is my guilty pleasure show, no question about it. It's a telling of the early life of Mary Queen of Scots at the French court: think Gossip Girl meets Game of Thrones. If you can get past the ridiculousness of some of the plots (with their sex, violence, and supernatural elements), the characters are developed well and the actors who play them are incredible. I especially love the indie music used as the show's soundtrack. I'll always have a soft spot for Reign because I wrote reviews of it for BroadwayWorld.com for half of the second season. Season 2 was recently added to US Netflix, if you're looking for something to watch.

The Borgias

The Borgias is probably the historical series I feel the least guilty about watching, despite its overuse of sex and violence. I adore Holliday Grainger so watching her as Lucrezia Borgia is a pleasure. Admittedly, the more political scenes sometimes bore me but I love all of the sumptuous costumes and sets.

New Girl

I think I may actually be Jess Day, the main character of New Girl, played by Zooey Deschanel. I watched the first season of New Girl in less than two weeks because I loved Jess and her roommates' antics. Admitedly, I couldn't get into the second season because I was too disappointed at my favorite couple falling apart (no spoilers!), but I may give it another try at some point.

Supergirl 

To be fair, Supergirl hasn't actually aired yet, but I already know that I love it! I'm so excited to have a girl superhero show and the cast couldn't be more impressive. I can't wait to have Jeremy Jordan on my TV every week and I'm looking forward to Laura Benanti's appearances as well. If you'll be watching too, then make sure to check out my reviews of the show on BroadwayWorld.com. 

Please share your favorite TV shows in the comments with me! When I finally have some free time (is that a real thing?), I'm thinking about either watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt or trying Game of Thrones? Which one would you recommend?
