Day 11 of My Favorite Things

april

For Day 11 of my favorite things, I’m going with TV shows.

Yes, when we were younger we all heard that too much television rots your brain, but I’m a firm believer that it can stimulate your mind as well!  I mean, when you watch mysteries/thrillers, don’t you find yourself THINKING about what might happen next?  When you watch comedies, don’t you laugh out loud?  Laughing is healthy!

True, I might just be trying to justify the fact that I watch A LOT of TV, especially since I do reviews for certain shows.  But I genuinely find it exciting to transport myself into another world for an hour.  It’s sort of like acting.  As someone who is passionate about writing, I watch my favorite shows and wonder what it might’ve been like in the writer’s room coming up with ideas and character plot lines.

Call me a nerd if you want to, but I look at it as creative energy needing to be released! 🙂

So, here is a list of my favorite TV shows (past and present) in no particular order:

The Vampire Diaries

The Originals

The Walking Dead
