#Long&ShortReviews #wednesdaybloggingchallenge 5.15.19

Today’s blogging prompt from Long and Short Reviews couldn’t be any more perfect for me if they’d ask me to come up with a topic all by myself! What are your Favorite TV shows and why, is what we’ll discuss today.

Let me get this out of the way right now: I don’t watch  a lot of commercial television. I’m not a GoT fanatic, have never seen This is Us, never checked into Gray’s Anatomy hospital and couldn’t possibly care less about any Gotham villains.

I do happen to have a great love of old tv shows from the 50s-80s. plus anyone who knows me knows I love reality television and BRAVO

So, It was a big field to pull from, but I figured I’d start out with the new stuff and then give an overview of the old. In no real order, here are my favs:

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hill, NY, and New Jersey. Why, you ask, would I want to waste an hour each week with women who appear as vapid, obnoxious, and stupid as these women you ask? The answer’s simple: for all their success, money, and fame, there lives really do suck, which makes my humdrum, boring life seem sosososo much better. Is that petty? If so, oh well.


The Blacklist, simply because of James Spader. I mean, come on! JAMES SPADER!

Killing Eve. My new addiction. This show is crafted and written so perfectly, I swear a forensic psychologist wrote it! The inner workings of the minds of Villanelle and Eve are labyrynths of chaos, intelligence, and evil. This show is so much fun to watch!

NCIS, simply  because of Mark Harmon. At 60+ he’s still my vote for sexiest man alive ( People magazine agrees!)

Now for the oldies.

Secret Agent Man. The only show I know of that ever got made because of a theme song. Cool, sophisticated, and sleek, this show was only on for a year or so, but it was a goodie. And SAM is my favorite song of all time.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Ilya Kuriakian, aka David McCallum, was such a hottie when I was 8 years old! He still is at 70+ ( See NCIS!)

I Love Lucy. Because…Lucy. First, last and always, Lucy!


So, those are just some of my favs. Let’s see what some other authors in this challenge like to watch: L&SR

    I Love Lucy is such a classic show. I didn’t realize there were still reruns of it airing!

  2. I whole-heartedly agree with all your older shows (and NCIS). I’m not familiar with Killing Eve and Blacklist, but I will check them out. Thanks for the heads up 🙂 My post is here: https://jhthomas.blogspot.com/2019/05/wednesday-weekly-blogging-challenge_15.html

  3. I know, how can you go wrong with James Spader? Lol! I’ve never seen the Man from U.N.C.L.E, but I’ve watched most of the others. I keep seeing the promos for Killing Eve, but haven’t meandered over there yet. Good list. 😉

      Wendi – UNCLE was on in the mid 60’s so you have to OLD like me!! to have seen it. But it was a really hip and happening show at the time! The movie remake a few years ago was pure crap!

    I want to see Killing Eve. It’s not available yet internationally.
    David McCallum is a legend. He was also in another rather obscure SF show called Sapphire and Steel which I’ve always liked.

      ECHO – Eve is on BBC and AMC here in america, and I know it’s on BBC worldwide ( I’m pretty sure, anyway!)

    I am the biggest Bravo fan. I only watch reality shows. The housewives are all best friends in my head. Love Lisa Vanderpump! Didn’t you post about your awful gym experience? I would’ve helped you.


    • Peggy Jaeger

      It’s funny – i think of those housewives as “friends” too! And yes, that was me, of the gym tragedy!!!!


  6. I agree with you on Mark Harmon and NCIS, which made my list too!

  7. Killing Eve is SO GOOD. I need to get caught up on that soon. And NCIS is one of our favorite go-tos in my house.

    Loads of interesting suggestions here – I’ve heard great things about Killing Eve, but I’ve never managed to watch it.

  9. I love “I Love Lucy”. I introduced my kid to it when she was about ten and she watched every single episode, lol. I’ve watched the first season of “The Blacklist” but haven’t gone back yet. “Killing Eve” is on my radar, too. I used to watch every episode of NCIS, but when the hullaballoo with Pauly P. leaving the show happened (and the reason behind it) I got annoyed with Mark Harmon. I might go back eventually when my grudge lightens up a bit, lol.
