Top Ten Tuesday: TV Shows I Binged and Love!

top 10 tuesday

Hello, welcome back to another Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:

In honor of Fall Tv, do a tv-themed topic! Top ten favorite tv shows of all time, ten new shows coming out this Fall that are on my radar, tv shows I wish never got cancelled, tv shows I would recommend to book characters, books I wish would be tv shows, ten favorite shows from the late 90’s or early 2000’s, ten tv shows for every fantasy lover, etc.

I’m doing 10 TV shows that I totally binged-watched and fell in love with, and which I love until this day.

Bossypants (Tina Fey)

>>>>  Nº 14 on My 2015 Reading Challenge – A non-fiction book <<<<

aad4-square-1536

Before Liz Lemon, before “Weekend Update,” before “Sarah Palin,” Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.

She has seen both these dreams come true.

At last, Tina Fey’s story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon—from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we’ve all suspected: you’re no one until someone calls you bossy.

(Includes Special, Never-Before-Solicited Opinions on Breastfeeding, Princesses, Photoshop, the Electoral Process, and Italian Rum Cake!)

I’ve actually owned the physical copy of this book for a few months now, but knowing that I wouldn’t get to it for a while, it went ahead to Portugal (with most of my precious). But the other day I was surfing through Audible (to see if a subscription might be worth it), and I wasn’t really sure if audiobooks were for me… (actually I decided that not so much, except for autobiographies!)

I listened to an excerpt of Bossypants, narrated by the author, the amazing Tina Fey, and I knew I NEEDED to listen to it. I was not in the least sorry. I started to listen to it right there, at work, and I started to laugh (loudly) by myself. I only paused to have diner (I needed to watch some Daily Show), and then I was back at it. The 5 hours and something flew by and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It’s the best decision I made in regards to this book, listening to Tina Fey telling it was just like I was watching an interview with her, or some other funny stuff with her. I love her and her work, so I just kept enjoying it :D.

It’s still an autobiography, which are not in any way my kind of books. And that’s why I won’t rate this higher…

(and now I have this huge overwhelming desire to watch all seasons of 30 Rock for the third time…)

30 Rock Rocks!

I watched all seasons of 30 Rock last summer. It’s an absolutely brilliant show, I almost forgot how great it was until last night I decided to watch a couple of episodes because there was nothing good on TV, and I’m kind of mad at Bones at the moment, the only episode of L&O SVU I have to watch is a really violent one, and I’m putting off Shameless, Suits, White Collar and Covert Affairs to make a weekend out of each show’s last seasons. So, 30 Rock it was! And I realized I love it so much, that I’m almost finishing the first season… again… =)

It as a (almost) perfect day… if it wasn’t for the fact that I had to actually do some work while watching the show 😉 !

My Top 10 TV Male/Female Friendships: 5 to 1

Yesterday I posted My Top 10 TV Male/Female Friendships: 10 to 6, now here are my Top 5:

5_1

   

5. Ted & Lily (Josh Radnor & Alyson Hannigan) – How I Met Your Mother

Ted’s best friend may be Marshall, but it’s Lily that always knows what’s up. They’re cute and sweet, and we can only hope to be as lucky as Ted to have such a couple of great friends.

4. Donna & Harvey (Sarah Rafferty & Gabriel Macht) – Suits

Donna knows Harvey better than he knows himself, and it shows! Maybe their special chemistry on screen is due to the fact that Sarah and Gabriel have actually been BFF’s in real life for many many years.

3. Liz Lemon & Jack Donaghy (Tina Fey & Alec Baldwin)30 Rock

Liz and Jack got married at some point in the show… but it was a mistake! They both made it pretty clear that there was nothing romantic around and still, the show is awesome! Jack mentors Liz and she becomes nothing like him, but in the process, the two became inseparable.

2. Derek Morgan & Penelope Garcia (Shemar Moore & Kirsten Vangsness) – Criminal Minds

These two have so many nicknames and cute ways of calling each other, that it’s a miracle that nothing ever happened. And I do hope it never will. They’re awesome exactly for that, because they are friends, besties, they bring out the best in each other, and they are just friends…

1. Donna & The Doctor (Catherine Tate & David Tennant) – Doctor Who

I love all of the Doctors companions in their own way, but Donna is special. From the first (and only) time since its comeback in 2005, we have a companion that, just as The Doctor, just wants a mate, and not “a mate”. She came at a great timing, right after Rose and Martha, both so clearly in love with him, Donna wants none of that! They are sassy and witty together and so much fun… Doctor-Donna! Her story is still one of the saddest for me… while all the other companions at least get to have their memories of their time with the Doctor, Donna will never know… oh… how I cried! And she was BRILLIANT with him. Catherine Tate and David Tennant are hilarious together!
