The first TV show blog has officially aired, and it is an exciting one. I will rank my 5 favorite TV shows and explain why they’re my favorites. It was definitely hard to condense the list to just 5 shows and even harder to rank them, but somehow I managed to do it. I correlate a lot of shows with different seasons and periods in my life, so many of them get a high ranking due to this nostalgia. So, grab some popcorn, and let’s dive into the fascinating world of television!

5. Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl is a timeless classic thanks to its memorable characters and themes. The whole premise of the show being about an anonymous blogger is intriguing, and it was interesting to see how fundamental this blog was to the lives of all the characters. The show was full of plot twists that kept me engaged till the end. There is also a balanced mix of drama and suspense that makes it that much more entertaining. The best character would 100% go to Chuck Bass. His character development was crazy to see; he started off being the cold playboy and became one of the most mature and vulnerable characters of the whole show. 

4. Peaky Blinders

Peaky Blinders is one of the most phenomenal shows I have seen yet. From the gloomy atmosphere of the show to the intricate plot, it deserved a spot on this list. The show did an exceptional job of bringing the audience into the world of Birmingham after World War I, and the characters really bring you into the scene. The actors (Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, etc.) do an impressive job of bringing the show and the characters to life. From the first episode, I was hooked. The drama of the criminal underworld and the conflicts that arise will for sure have you at the edge of your seat. Since its initial airing in 2013, you can clearly see the effect the show has even had on fashion trends. “Shelby suits” and flat caps have become more popular since the show, and many people have been styling them with their own twists!

3. New Girl

I think that New Girl would be the funniest show out of all five I am talking about. Nick, Schmidt, Cece, Jess, and Winston all have such distinct personalities that make them endearing characters, and the best thing about them is that they are all well-rounded, complex individuals. Out of all the characters, Winston Bishop is my favorite. His one-liners and antics easily make him the funniest character on the show. Winston’s soft spot for his cat Ferguson makes him even more lovable.  I think that the balance between comedy and drama also allows the show to secure a spot in the top 5. Despite having consistent wordplay and situational humor, it manages to hit on vital topics like breakups, career setbacks, and family issues.

2. Friends

I feel like Friends is always on everyone’s top 5 lists and for good reason. Friends is my comfort show and truly never fails to make me laugh. No matter how many times I have seen an episode, I am guaranteed to laugh at the exact same joke. I don’t know why, but it just never gets old. The characters and their personalities make the show really relatable and have a light-hearted feel. Despite running for 10 seasons, it has remained a cultural phenomenon and has managed to keep the audience invested for all this time. The award for the best character would undoubtedly go to Joey; he is the most loyal and caring friend. Joey is naturally funny and his jokes have provided the show with some of its most iconic moments. The nostalgia of the show is also something that everyone, including myself, appreciates. 

1. Game of Thrones

I think Game of Thrones winning the number one spot is pretty self-explanatory. The production of this show is unlike something I have never seen before. It was obvious that all seven seasons were carefully planned and executed, and you can clearly see the effort. Despite the eighth season going in a direction that none of us enjoyed, it was definitely unpredictable, which is the essence of a great show. Aside from the insane production of the show, one of the best things about it is that all of the characters are complex and multi-layered. My favorite character would 100% be Jon Snow, and you can see the evolution of his character and how much he struggles with identity. As an outcast in his family, he always preached loyalty and honor, despite always experiencing treachery. 


After curating this list, I really noticed how expansive my taste in TV shows really is. I feel like I hit a variety of genres with just 5 shows. From Friend’s witty dialogue to Game of Thrones’s epic storytelling, the power of television to immerse us in new worlds is captivating. Each one of these TV shows leaves a lasting impression and makes you feel as if you are another character in the show. That’s how invested in some shows you can become. As I mentioned before, nostalgia for shows is strongly correlated to different time periods in your lives. I vividly remember when I started watching these shows. Sometimes, I come back to watch them just to satisfy that nostalgia, and that feeling is priceless.

Whether you feel like crying or getting on a thrill ride of your life, there is a TV show out there for you. The world of television is ever-evolving and new shows are always dropping. So, who knows, maybe this list will look different in a few years. It’s possible that a show that hasn’t even come out yet to conquer the number one spot. The possibilities are endless. That’s all for now! Thank you much for taking the time to read this blog, and make sure to subscribe to my newsletter! I have 2 more blogs dropping this week, so make sure to stay tuned! Happy watching!
