TV Shows on my list

The Walking Dead, Outlander, Game of Thrones! All TV show pearls I have been following for the last few weeks. The Walking Dead has ended its 6th season, Outlander has just begun its 2nd season, and Game of Thrones is at the very start of the most entisipated season 6!

Beware: this article contains spoilers for all three TV shows! If you are not up to date with any of these, please click away now. Thank you 🙂

You guys know I am a fan of Outlander (obviously!) and Game of Thrones.

And if you have been following my Pinterest you might also know I love The Walking Dead. Although, love is of course a strong word considering the violence and gore of the show. But excuse me for saying: damn this season! The story was more violent than ever, which made it even more explosive. A lot of people I have talked to about The Walking Dead say that they have stopped watching at some point along one of the previous seasons (or even after a few episodes) because they thought the story stayed the same the entire time. Which is true. That is why I didn’t like last season.

But even though it’s always zombies *excuse me: walkers*, disease or the eternal kidnapping, the story still leaves me extremely curious about every next episode. The story has this core of extremeness – of survival, which feels sort of reassuring to watch because humans are seemingly capable of keeping themselves standing in such a situation. And yes, I do sigh whenever somebody gets kidnapped by other people AGAIN or when they announce another group of bad people or another villain.. But I must say they kind of laughed at their own loop this season, I mean: the way Daryl was able to exterminate that group of ‘saviours’ in episode 9.

TV Show phenomena

I thought I’d make this little post to balance all the costuming out a bit ;).

I am very interested in seeing that TV shows are getting more appreciation over the years. Everybody is watching them! I bet that if you ask someone if they watch one, the chance is bigger that they watch more than two then none. What is it that makes TV shows awesome?

Jamie Fraser and Claire Beauchamp in Starz’ Outlander

For me, it really is the chance to get involved in a world that is not of real existence. It is weird to comprehend how a piece of imagination can become such a phenomenon across the world. Take for instance Outlander, books written by Diana Gabaldon. In her mind she has created this world that everyone can visit through reading her words. And now even an entire group of people are taking her scenes and characters and bringing them to life in already a second season on Starz.

The coming together of creation, fantasy, history, reality and above all the length in which it comes is what, for me, makes TV shows such an addictive perception. You don’t have to stop wandering around that world after an hour, but the story just keeps coming. Of course the unhealthy part is the binge watching, but that has to do with a little responsibility ;).

Now I would love to know what your favourite shows are..! Why do you like them? What genre makes the top of your list?

As you guys know by now, the combination of reality and fantasy is the best it can get, and thus I, someday, would love to walk around a film set once. Just seeing all that creation come together – It’s awesome.

I’ll talk to you soon! Have a good one.
