  1. I’ve got DS9, Sherlock and Freaks and Geeks on my list too! I think Garak is a great character- underlying darkness that gets revealed further as the seasons go on! That episode where he has to torture Odo- “The Die is Cast”- hard going stuff but so emotional and well played.

    • Yay!! DS9 is my comfort show – I always watch it if I am feeling a bit down (odd choice I know but I just love it!) Garak is such an intriguing character – “The Die is Cast” is one of my favourite episodes (along with “The Wire”). I also love the episode where he teams up with Worf “In Purgatory’s Shadow” – so much understated humour!! I also have a real soft spot for S7 Damar (which I never thought I would considering what he did in S6!!)

      I just checked out your list – great choices! I am really intrigued by Neverwhere. I have read the book and also watched the miniseries that came out in the mid-90’s – this adaptation looks very interesting. 🙂

    • Sherlock is amazing – your friend really did you a massive favour by getting you into it!!

      I know what you mean – it will be a loooong wait for the next series. I was lucky to get into it later so I could binge-watch the entire run so far! 😉

    • I loved Veronica Mars (the movie was great too!) Logan was my favourite (well, aside from Veronica that is!)

      I was rooting for LOVE from probably about the 4th of 5th episode but was completely floored when they actually went there! LOL 😉

      I like your choices. Once Upon a Time just missed my top ten but I really love the show. The Princess Bride is one of my favourite movies too (I also loved Westley). 😀

    • You really should try Deadwood and Freaks and Geeks – they are both fantastic!! Deadwood initially put me off with all the swearing (and there is a *lot* of swearing) but you tune it out after awhile. It is probably one of the most impressive shows I have ever seen. 🙂

      I love your TTT – My Mad Fat Diary is one of my top shows too!!

    • Thanks!!

      That’s the best way to watch Deadwood! It was my other half who was originally a fan of the show (I never watched it when it was on TV) and he encouraged me to watch the whole series when he got it on DVD. I ended up becoming the bigger fanatic funnily enough! LOL 😉

  2. I didn’t know what to expect when I first picked up Game of Thrones just to test-watch to “see what the hype was about”. Yeah, no. One day later I was in the middle of season two. Rest is history. It’s pretty difficult to talk to people who’ve only read the books though…there’s a definite broken telephone feel when I try to talk to them about my feels without getting myself or them spoiled because I think certain arcs are ahead of each other respectively haha.

    Cheers,
    joey via. thoughts and afterthoughts

    • LOL – it is very addictive viewing! I have binge-watched it a few times.

      I have read the books but I read the last one “A Dance with Dragons” when it came out in 2011 and I hadn’t read the others for a few years before that so my memory is quite hazy (the books are very dense!) and I don’t always remember every little thing. I think that makes me appreciate the series more though because I don’t nitpick as much!! A girl I work with started reading them after getting into the series and she would ask me all these questions and I really couldn’t remember things all that clearly – she found it hard not to compare the two once she had read the books. 😉

      I agree – I think it can be difficult for bookwalkers and non-bookwalkers to talk about the show vs the books – the show is ahead with some things and some it hasn’t even touched on (yet). Plus the show is starting to veer off a little which I actually like quite a bit because it means there will still be surprises in store! 😀

    • Thanks! Deep Space Nine is amazing – hope you enjoy it!!

      Love your list too – I had a really hard time narrowing mine down and had to leave off Gilmore Girls, the Walking Dead and Once Upon a Time. 😉
