My Top 5 Current Favourite TV shows.

Since I’ve finished my exams I’m not ashamed to admit I’ve been Binge watching some TV shows. Well, rather a lot of shows… So I thought I would share with you my absolute favourites that I’ve been loving right now. Please enjoy.


So if you’re from America you might not have heard of or seen Poldark. its a BBC drama here in the UK and I love it! I dont know what it is, maybe its the Cornish accents and all the horses, but I just love this show. I cant wait for the next series to come out this summer. So far there are 3 seasons and they cover the adventures of Captain Ross Poldark and his wife Demelza (who is an awesome badass, take-no-crap woman), through their rather interesting life. Its mostly focused on general life, but there’s so much family feuds and forbidden love that its so fun to watch. It really is dramatic though and covers a huge expense of time, each episode covering anywhere from a couple of days to a year, which can get confusing. Yet it really is just amazing to see how life was and the sorrows that encompassed it, well as well as the joys. Plus I love a good period drama. Definitely a favourite of mine and I cant wait for the 4th season.

Once Upon A Time

Once Upon a Time is an old favourite of mine. I fell in love with it back around season 2 and ever since I’ve been keeping up with it and Im so sad we’re on the last season! I’ve always loved fairy tales and so when I found a show which was basically fairy tales brought to life, how could I not love it? And this season is the final season, so I have been religiously watching it and will continue to do so until the final episode. For those who are unaware, Once Upon a Time is about a town in Maine called Storybrooke, where all the residents are actually all characters from our beloved storybooks, but
they are all cursed to not know who they are. Some are separated form their loved ones and others are cursed to a life of misery. Until the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming comes along to save the day. Its brilliant and so original! There are a lot of curses and i suppose that can get repetitive, but I dont care. I really love the story line.

The 100

I watched The 100 years ago, when it first came out on the TV and I loved it then, but life got in the way and I stopped watching it. After my exam this year, I started to rewatch it, especially since it on Amazon Prime, and caught up. i must say this program is fantastic! Its so full of realness, and I dont mean the plot line, I meant the characters. They are each so real. They struggle with the things we all do and when we loose one its so sad! They aren’t worried about killing of main characters either! Although if they kill of Octavia I might scream. Oh its so good! So to catch anyone up, we’re following a world post-apocalyptic, after a huge world-wide nuclear war which wiped out all of humanity on earth. Luckily a few nations sent people up to space to survive. In 100 years the world should be habitable again, however the Ark is failing, so they send down 100 juvenile prisoners to the ground to find out if its habitable. The series follows these kids and the parents up on the Ark, and ohhhh its getting so good. I won’t ruin it for you if your going to watch it, but I will say. They aren’t alone.


If your a teenager and haven’t heard of The Mortal Instruments then where have you been? The Mortal Instruments were super popular about 4  years ago and I really enjoyed the first book and the film. The other books, I’m not going to lie, I struggled to get into. But now they have a TV series! And its great! Im really enjoying it so far and I’ve been keeping up with it as much as possible. In this show, we follow the story of clary who finds out the world is not who she thought she is, and soon enough she is plunged into a world of Shadowhunters, Demons, Werewolves and Witches (well warlocks). I find it a really chill show to watch, although there have been rather a few cliffhangers that have kept me wanting more.

The Originals

I loved the Vampire Diaries. I will never claim to have read the books, although they are on my list. But i definitely enjoyed the show. When that ended and The Originals began I though, yeah why not. OH MY GODS! I love this series even more! I love New Orleans, so much so that I’m planning on getting there soon, and its just the perfect setting for a series about Witches, Werewolves and Vampires. I really enjoy this show and even though the plot is a little more out there than usual tales, I really like that. This season is even more gripping and actually much darker than usual, which im really enjoying. Although the annoying thing is that you cant really watch it here in the UK, so I have to find other ways to do so. Its so annoying isn’t it!


Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed. What are your favourite shows at the moment? Let us know in the comment below.

    I actually haven’t watched any of these shows! Currently I’m watching all 4 seasons on Love Island, since they have it on Hulu over here, and since I have so many friends from the UK, I can definitely say I was curious. I’m finally starting season 4, and when I finish this season up, I’ll definitely have to check up on all these shows! Great post, you gave a whole bunch of shows that are not the “norm” xx

      You will have to check these shows out as they are all so good! Oh my word I love Love Island, this is Jenny replying btw. I was so against watching it to begin with but my course mates kept talking about it so I started watching it on Netflix and just got so addicted! What has been your favourite season so far?

        That’s exactly the thing! Everyone talks about it all over twitter, and then my UK friends talk about it, and since I like reality TV to begin with. I think my favorite season was season 2! I loved Kady, Olivia, Alex, and just everyone! The challenges, the couples, everything about it.
