Happy Friday! It’s been a while since I’ve done a 5 Fandom Friday, but I’m back to it. This weeks’ prompt is Favorite Late to the Game TV Discoveries and I can say with certainty that I’m almost always late to every TV show. This is mostly because we don’t have cable so I just don’t know what’s going on in the land of TV until my newsfeed blows up about it or someone is kind enough to give me the scoop.
Parks & Rec
This has to be my top favorite late to the game TV discovery. We kept hearing great things about it, so we started binge watching it while the last season was airing and caught up just in time to watch the finale. There’s just so much to love about this show. I feel like I constantly hear many Ron-isms in my head and this made me fall madly in lurve with Chris Pratt. Plus, waffles rule!
We binged on Sherlock 2 weeks ago and I’m OBSESSED! I never got what was so great about Benedict Cumberbatch until I watched this show and now he makes me all hot and bothered. I absolutely love this show. The filming itself is gorgeous to me and I think Sherlock and Watson’s relationship is brilliant. While I wasn’t thrilled with The Abominable Bride or the fact that I have to wait a whole year until I watch it again, I’m ready for more. I even changed my ringtone to the theme song. 🙂
The Walking Dead
Somehow we totally missed the boat on this show for the first 3 seasons. The thought of zombies initially wasn’t appealing to me, but then we watched and we couldn’t stop. The character relationships are fantastic and I can’t wait to see what happens when the show returns in a few weeks.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
My best friend watched this all throughout high school, but I wasn’t granted a lot of TV time back then and sadly missed out on watching this. I’m very slowly making my way through it. It’s campy and fun and reminds me of the 90’s. Plus, Buffy is awesome and I wish I had her to look up to when I was as a teen.
Even though it was only one season, I was WAY WAY late to the show. I didn’t watch it until a decade later and it’s what got me hooked on embracing space and nerdy goodness. This show was everything I could want from a show and it’s one that I have no problem sitting down and binge watching over and over again.
What shows were you late to?
