These TV shows will take some time to watch. However, if you want a show that is pretty far along, these are worth watching and getting invested in.
I’ll be surprised if you haven’t watched this one. Olivia Pope is a former White House worker and campaign manager. She’s also a professional fixer. She runs her own business called, “Pope and Associates.” Her and her crew call themselves Gladiators and they take on some tricky cases that happen among some of the most prestigious political figures there in Washington. Oh yeah, Olivia is also President Grant’s mistress. Throw in Mellie Grant, Fitzgerald Grant’s (such a Presidential name for a fake President) political hungry wife and the drama is in place. The show can get more than a little graphic and sexual for a ABC show but at least it’s never boring.
This is considered one of the best TV shows of all time. The tales of Tony Soprano and his gang lasted for six extremely intense seasons. Some of the things that happened on the show just couldn’t be predicted. No one was safe, even the main characters could be killed off at any minute. Part of it’s appeal was that it always kept you guessing and just when you thought it couldn’t cross anymore lines, it’d cross yet another line. Carmela Soprano is easily one of my favorite female TV characters of all time. She’s complicated and badass, not much more could you want from a character. James Gandolfini had one of the best acting performances ever as this evil cheating mob boss. It’s a beautiful show that’s definitely worth watching.
This teen drama is obviously nothing like The Sopranos. Yet I think this show is worth watching because it’s filled with intense drama and who doesn’t love watching a bunch of rich kids fight their problems out? This show has amazing music and outfits that you can’t help but envy. Plus the love story between Chuck and Blair is by far one of my favorites. The most significant thing about the show is just how much of a part of our culture the show has become in a fairly short amount of time.
Hart of Dixie
Zoe Hart is a doctor from New York who finds out her biological father who recently died left her half of his practice in Alabama. She moves down South and finds her life changing forever. This show is silly and filled with jokes that don’t always work. Some of the storylines also fall flat. Why do I think it’s worth watching? Rachel Bilson is charming and stylish as Zoe Hart. The love story between her and country boy Wade is adorable. The show is also filled with the cutest outfits and has also introduced me to some of the best music.
Friday Night Lights
There aren’t many things as amazing as watching this TV show for the first time. It’s hard not to find yourself caught up in the characters and stories. The show focuses on high school football coach Eric Taylor who starts off the series as the new head coach for the Dillon Panthers. The football team is preparing for it’s best season yet but finds themselves unsure of what to do when the team is thrown an unexpected curveball. Prepare to fall in love with bad boy Tim Riggins, the good quiet boy Matt Saracen, nerdy Landry Clark, and the overconfident running back Smash Williams. You can’t tell me Eric and Tami aren’t the cutest couple ever.
