Five TV Shows I Love, But Didn’t Expect to Originally
5. Two Broke Girls
I’m not big on comedy, but my mom had seen a sneak peak of this on her trip to Las Vegas and basically forced me to watch it. I won’t die if I miss an episode, but I appreciate the themes and the characters of the show.
I actually watched the pilot of this show a couple of years earlier because one of my best friends was obsessed with it. I fell asleep like ten minutes in, and basically gave up on it. But then I watched it this summer and OH MY GOD. I suddenly understand all the love for this show.
3. The Office
I’d heard good things about this for a couple of years thanks to Angel, but again I wasn’t a big fan of comedy, and honestly the awkwardness made me feel kind of ill. Then I watched all of season 1 and 2 (and possibly 3?) with the boyfriend. My love of it has been renewed with Catherine Tate’s recent appearances as well.
2. Up All Night
This is a really recent thing. I’ve only seen a couple episodes because it happens to be on after The Office and before Awake during the boyfriend and mine’s Thursday night tv watching spree, but it’s actually kind of awesome. There’s a totally feminist undertone that I’m adoring. Actually, a lot of the comedies I’ve been watching have that kind of theme, and it’s making me really appreciate comedies.
Another show I didn’t think I’d like because of the comedy thing. This is probably one of my favourite shows ever. If you’re not watching it, you need to be. For real. Just do it.
