I Miss My Zombies, Bikers, Jailbirds, Clones, and People of Westeros and Essos

My only TV entertainment at the moment is Big Brother 16, Bachelor in Paradise, True Blood and The Leftovers. Not that those shows aren’t good to watch; I’m a bit addicted to Big Brother and hoping Derrick wins (as he is the best player on there and is also from Rhode Island). There is just something about my favorite shows that I really feel like I am missing. I truly do miss my Zombies, Bikers, Jailbirds, Clones, and People of Westeros and Essos!

The Walking Dead on AMC is awesome, because it’s not really about the zombies. Yes, they are there, but killing zombies isn’t as gross or scary as you would think. It’s a bit funny to tell you the truth. Especially if you watch the In Memoriam on The Talking Dead which comes on immediately after the show. What I love most about The Walking Dead is the suspense, the character interaction, and the knowledge that they do kill off main characters which keeps you on the edge of your seat. Although if Daryl dies I may not recover. I can’t wait to see what this next season brings. I want them all to find each other and get out of that flesh-eating city!

Next, we have Sons of Anarchy on FX. I am a bit pissed at how the last season ended with Tara and Gemma, but I am also looking forward to what measures Gemma’s actions will push Jax to. I truly wanted Jax and Tara to be happy together, get away from the violence for their sons, and ride off into the sunset. I guess that wouldn’t be as realistic though. I’m sure once you are in that lifestyle, getting out is a hard thing to do. Anyway, I am looking forward to see what happens, and to of course see shirtless Jax Teller!

And next for my jailbirds! Love, love, love Orange is the New Black! That show is ON POINT! The character development and interactions is phenomenal. The characters are all so different, have their unique backstories, and are forced to deal with each other day in and day out at a women’s prison. Some things depicted in the show may be a little over the top, but I bet a lot of that does go down. With names like Red, Pennsatucky, Crazy Eyes, and Taystee, how can it not be an amazing show? And it all stemmed from the real life story of Piper Chapman as well! I am so looking forward to when the next season of this comes out on Netflix! Yes, it’s a Netflix original!

Oh Tatiana Maslany, how I miss your incredible acting ability. Never in my life have I seen an actress play so many different roles all so real. She truly is a complete different character with each clone she plays in Orphan Black on BBC America, and in fact you can even tell which clone she is when pretending to be another clone. It’s simply genius. If I had the power, I would have given Tatiana every acting award possible. She deserves it. This show is also amazing because it is interesting, fast paced, and crazy things can happen. And who doesn’t love Fee? I can’t wait until this starts again!

Last but not least, my people of Westeros and Essos. Oh how I miss thee! Game of Thrones on HBO has become better and better each season it has been on. The last two seasons were amazing! With scenes/episodes called The Red Wedding and The Purple Wedding, how can one not be intrigued? I am going to actually try and read the books now! I hear they are good, even though slightly different from the show. I love the show though! So many characters from different places, yet they somehow they all fit together. And talk about keeping you on the edge of your seat…..they literally killed off almost an entire family on one episode. Unbelievable! The places they film the show is also insane. They travel the world to find places for the different scenes in these novels. We recently took a trip to Iceland. Although we did not make it to northern Iceland where they film Castle Black and The Wall, we did get to see the southern area lava fields where the Wildlings were filmed in season two. I love the “woman power” in this show as well. From Lady Catelyn Stark to Arya Stark to Daenerys Targaryen to Asha Greyjoy to Ygritte and of course Brienne of Tarth, I’ve never seen such strength and leadership in women than what they depict on this show. I wouldn’t be surprised if at the end there were only women left….and Tyrion Lannister, Jon Snow and Hodor I hope as well. I wonder what this next season will bring!

  1. We like a lot of the same shows! I haven’t tried Orphan Black though and for some reason I can’t get into Game of Thrones – my husband loves it though.

  2. It sounds like we watch quite a few of the same shows! I watched Orange is The New Black, kinda obsessed with Big Brother and Bach in Paradise! I tried watching True Blood though but didn’t really get into it, I think I watched 3 episodes.

  3. We’ve been missing our weekly shows too! We watch Walking dead, Castle, Mentalist, and Doctor Who! lol. Thankfully Doctor Who comes back this month; I’ve been going through withdrawals and it hasn’t been pretty. lol.

  4. You and I have a lot of the same taste in shows, love SOA, True Blood, Walking Dead & OITNB. I also borrowed Game of Thrones from a friend – I need to watch this!

  5. I LOVE SOA but I am seriously unhappy with how the season ended. So mad! I wanted them to end the series with them riding off into the sunset (or something). lol I am also a fan of OITNB but I watched both seasons so now I just wait for more.

  6. Jenna Wood says:

    Big SOA fans here and also with you on the ending of last season. Mostly just sad the series is coming to an end though! I am only wondering how many characters will be left by the end? I think it’s so funny we are both watching True Blood and Big Brother Sunday nights! I tried to get into Leftovers but maybe the first two episodes were just slow, or I didn’t devote enough attention?

  7. We watch all the same shows. I miss them too : (

  8. WOW! I am so excited to have some new shows to be addicted to. You are Truly passionate about your characters!!! I made a note of these and when I am done with Pretty Little Liars on Netflix I am going to start working my way through your list.

  9. The only one in that group that I watch is Orange Is The New Black. I’m looking forward to Grays Anatomy, Scandal, and Parenthood. Of course, I’m up to date with House of Cards which is scary phenomenal, too!

  10. I can’t wait for fall shows to start up again. Especially all my favorites added onto Netflix!

  11. OMG I miss my Walking Dead show too. It’s my favorite and the only reason I watch tv. Otherwise, I’m not a fan of many other shows. It drives me crazy when they go on such a long hiatus. I just want to see my favorite characters again and of course I love my zombies too. hehee!

  12. The only one of these we watch at my house is The Walking Dead. Zombies are popular around here.

  13. I don’t have much time for TV but my family loves to watch the Walking Death… they are all wild about it..thanks for sharing, I soo wanna watch some of the new shows…

  14. I toured Senoia where they filmed the Walking Dead a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, they weren’t filming that day, just my luck. lol

  15. The Walking Dead is the only show in this article I’ve ever watched, and it’s AWESOME! I have to disagree about the zombie killing. To me, it’s pretty gross, but it’s a good kind of gross.

  16. Amy Desrosiers says:

    Very cool because I love True Blood, OITNB, and Walking Dead. I also love American Horror Story, Shamelss, and Under the Dome.

  17. LOL at first glance I did not realize you were posing with a cut out! Sounds like quite a variety!

  18. So the only one I have seen is Walking Dead… Love it… and can’t wait for it to come back on… Heard it is supposed to be really great!

  19. If Daryl dies I’ll boycott. I just started watching Sons of Anarchy. I’m only about 2 episodes into the entire show. Yes, I know I’m way behind, but better late than never.

  20. I love the real life shows like Bachelorette! I have not really gotten into the sci fi shows I amy have to check them out.

  21. I don’t really like them to much with the exception of True Blood.

  22. Ann Bacciaglia says:

    I an addicted to Big Brother and love Derrick and Zach. I agree that Derrick is playing a fantastic game.

  23. I am watching Big Brother this season. It is getting really good now and the true personalities are coming out,.

  24. Game of Thrones + Walking Dead = perfection!!!! We don’t have TV, but we make sure to stream these one way or another because they’re the best shows out there!!!

  25. I don’t have HBO so you lost me there. But, I do miss my Jax and Daryl!!

  26. I like Big Brother also. I am so hooked on Orange is the New Black right now!

  27. Must say I don’t watch any of these – but I have just started watching the new Outlander series! :)

  28. Most of my favorite shows are on break so I have been watching other shows on Netflix and Hulu. I love Orange is The New Black!

  29. I watch all HBO and Showtime! We have plenty of the same favs.

  30. My favorite shows are on break now too. It’s nice to watch netflix or hbo.

  31. I haven’t seen this show. I love the photo of Iceland.
