Top 10 Favorite Shows

Do you remember what your favorite television shows were when you were a kid, a teenager, and a young adult?  What are your favorite shows now?  I thought it would be fun to remember back, and take a look at how the shows we watch represent what is happening in our lives at the time.  To this day whenever I see one of these shows, I am transported back in time, and easily remember the feelings I had when I first watched it. It is funny how emotionally attached we become to shows, and how devastated we become when they end.  Here are my top 10 favorite shows (and believe me, there were many contenders for the top 10!)

Childhood (I was an 80's child) -

1. Little House on the Prairie - I was Laura for Halloween at least 5 times.

2. Avonlea- This was a show on the Disney Channel which was based on the Anne of Green Gables books. It was such a great show, and for years I wanted to name my future daughter Felicity.  (That was solidified even more when the actual show Felicity came out!)

3. Saved By the Bell - I had a huge crush on Zach.  Mario's turned out pretty nice though :)

4. The Wonder Years - You might assume that I chose my blog name based on the show, but really, I didn't.  Although I did love that show!  (The blog name was chosen after I took a picture of Micah and saw the wonder in his eyes looking up at the sky).

5. Felicity - I still think she should have chosen Noel!

6. Everwood - Incredible cast, incredible storylines. I seriously loved this show.

7. Alias - I never missed one episode of this show.  I lived vicariously through Sydney Bristow!

8. Lost - The third show I loved from JJ Abrams (Felicity and Alias were also his shows). Again, never missed an episode. We even visited the filming location when we went to Hawaii.  The series finale was LAME - anyone else agree?  (Can you tell I'm still bitter?)

9. Parenthood - Currently my favorite show on television.  Amazing cast, and amazing writers. If you have not seen this show yet, you MUST watch it.  I beg you. Stop what you are doing and watch episodes online. Then TIVO it.  You will love it.

10. Up All Night - Hilarious new comedy; makes me laugh until I cry.  If you like Up All Night, you'll love Parenthood :)

 Okay, what are your top 10 favorite shows?  I know that's a lot to think about, so leave me a comment with at least 1!


  1. I feel lame that I haven't watched most of those, but I do love me some Saved by the Bell. Boy Meets World is probably my favorite childhood show of all time. How I Met Your Mother is my favorite still on air tv show.

  2. I think you and I have the same taste when it comes to tv! I LOVED Alias + Lost+ The Wonder Years, currently love Parenthood, and enjoyed Everwood. Felicity I'm sure I would have liked it I ever sat down with the girls in my quad who were glued to it every week in South Hall! :) I would add "Third Watch" to my Top 10 for sure and "Who's the Boss?" I'd have to think about it more to get the whole list together though.

  3. I absolutely LOVE Parenthood. It is the best show on TV right now. I also love Modern Family for some good laughs :)

  4. I just started watching Parenthood! Catching up on old ones first. I love Modern Family and we just started watching Happy Endings which comes on after it---it's pretty well written and funny. Loved Little House on the Prairie and Felicity too. I'll have to think of a top 10 for myself :)

  5. I also loved the Wonder Years! Today I like to see the Who do you think you are shows from America, England and Sweden. They are so interesting and special.
