It’s not even 11 am, and today is pretty much thebestdayeverrr. I am not even joking.
I ordered some shoes last week, and today I got a call informing me they were ready to be picked up. I got to the store and tried them on. They fit perfectly! As I went to buy them, I was told that they were on sale – for a teeny tiny sixty dollars O.O – which was about 70% off of the original price.
As I was walking, with haste to get out of the shopping centre, (because, let’s face it, I abhor shopping centres. Yuck. They are sticky, and naff and waytoobright, and I always leave feeling like I am in a trance. I much prefer shopping in the city – a-n-y-day) I spotted a buytwogetathirdfree sale on ALL television series. O.O
So, thanks to some birthday vouchers that I still hadn’t used up yet, I was able to complete my entire Sopranos collection.
Which all brings me to my next Top Five – Television series! These are loosely in order, and were actually very hard to pick. There are so many great shows out there. But, for reasons both cinematic and emotional connection, my Top Five television series are…
1. The Sopranos
I do bang on about The Sopranos, I know, but seriously, I can’t get enough of it! I know that once I have finished the end of season 6, I’ll immediately want to start watching from Season 1 again. I resisted watching it for such a long time, because everybody said it was so good. And I seem to have developed a strange aversion to almost anything somebody says is a ‘must see’ or a ‘must try’. It’s stupid, I know.
2. Breaking Bad
WOW. What more can I say? This show will keep you on your toes. It centres around a middle aged man – chemistry teacher turned drug ‘manufacturer’, diagnosed with cancer, who will to go any and all lengths to ensure his family is provided for, in lieu of his demise.
3. Big Love
For your super dose of emotio-relational drama, with a mega twist – modern day polygamy. I know not everybody shares my liking to this show, but how could you not resist the gorgeous likes of Chloë Sevigny? Plus, sister-wives! And for the first three seasons, a Beach Boys song was used for the intro – ‘God Only Knows’.
4. Arrested Development
The only comedy on my list. This show just gets funnier and funnier every time I watch it. My favourite character is Buster. And admittedly, I have always had a strange crush on Jason Bateman – but don’t we all?
When Dana and I started dating almost five years ago, this show provided a super great excuse for me to see him all the time. You know, at the beginning of a relationship, you’re playing it cool, despite the fact that you’re absolutely crazy over him… I felt that to stave from being a creepy clingy girlfriend and letting the crazy out, it would be easier if there were some third party ‘excuse’ to see each other allthefreakingtime. This was OZ. We would ‘watch’ it until all hours of the night.
Despite my distraction, this show has immense re-watchability. But I am not sure if it is purely because it is a great show, or that I missed out on so much of it because I was on the couch smooching my boyfriend.
So, there you go! That’s my Top Five for today.
What are your Top Five television series? Do we share any in common??
Hope you are all having a beautiful day. In a couple of hours, I’m going to ride my bike 7km to the top of the city to meet Dana when he finishes uni for a little date – It’s becoming a bit of a Wednesday tradition, and I like it!
Ps. Oooh, what do you think of my new blog layout? I am liking it so much better than my ugly old one. I’ve been wanting to change it for aaaages. Methinks a WIN is in order… I may just go celebrate by sneaking in a cheeky episode of Sopranos… ;)
