Five Faves on Friday #5: TV Shows

This week’s list will consist of five of my favorite television shows. I tend to watch my favorite shows more than I watch movies. You really get to know the people/characters, which generally triggers a deeper connection to it than a movie.


Beverly Hills, 90210
I was only going on two years old when this show premiered in 1990, so I was a little young during its initial run to watch it. I began watching it in 2004 when I was a freshman in high school and was instantly hooked. It has sort of become a bed time ritual to watch this show at night and fall asleep to. My favorite characters are Valerie (played by Tiffani Thiessen) and Brenda (played by Shannen Doherty). My favorite seasons are season 4 and season 6. I did not like Kelly and Dylan together at all, and if you ask me the age old question, Brandon or Dylan? Definitely Brandon.


Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I still remember when the very first episode premiered on March 10, 1997. I was eight years old at the time, and I always loved horror movies as a kid, so this show seemed right up my alley. As the first episode was airing, I was immediately hooked. I don’t know if any show could ever mean as much to me as this show does. I literally grew up watching it. From a child, to a teenager, and now I still watch as an adult. Whenever I was sick or going through a tough time, I would put on Buffy to watch and it helped me get through it. Season 2 is my absolute favorite. I love Buffy and Angel and their whole storyline. Spike and Buffy were disgusting together in the last seasons.


The Challenge
I’ve been watching this show since I was in high school, so it’s been over a decade now, but the show is even older than that. It premiered in 1998 (then called Real World/Road Rules Challenge), and it’s currently airing its 30th season. I believe the first season I tuned in was The Duel in 2006. I’m not a huge reality TV person, but this is one reality show that I am completely obsessed with. Every time a new season comes on, I get so hyped. I love how a lot of the same cast members return, but you also get new people coming in to keep it fresh. My current favorite competitors are Cara Maria (pictured above left), Jenna, and Kailah. I also like Laurel (above right), but I hate when she’s rude to Cara.


Another excellent show from the 90’s. Although this show wasn’t quite as good as Buffy, and I don’t particularly care for the last couple seasons, it’s still one of my favorites. I like to binge this one a lot too. Prue is my favorite character, and I like the first 3 seasons the best. Although I do like Paige as well. I’m still kind of bummed that Phoebe and Cole didn’t end up together. (Mainly because Julian McMahon went on to do Nip/Tuck, which is another show I like as well, so I get that).


One Tree Hill
This is my favorite teen drama show after Beverly Hills, 90210. Even when some characters ended up leaving, I still liked the new characters. I thought the show always stayed interesting. Of course there were some far fetched storylines, but they were still entertaining. Brooke (Sophia Bush) is my favorite character on the show. If you ask me if I prefer Lucas or Nathan, I pick Nathan. He was a complete jerk at the beginning of season one, but he really redeems himself and turns into an amazing guy. I can only dream of having a relationship like Naley (Nathan and Haley) one day.

  1. I was a fan of Road Rules, but I only saw one season completely. It was the one with the guy from one of the Scandinavian countries and he taught them to say Cheers in his language. I had no idea they were still doing this. I wonder if it airs in Canada?

  2. This is such a great list of shows. I was obsessed with Charmed during my teenage years. I bought all the merchandise, including magazines, books and trading cards and even used to print off all the scripts so I could read them! Paige was always my favourite and I think she was an amazing replacement for Prue. I cried when it ended. Forever Charmed is the cutest episode ever!

    Omg, One Tree Hill. I love it so much. The first four series’ are the best – it just worked better when they were in high school. I still watched the rest of it though, it just wasn’t quite as good. And why did Dan almost die at the end of every season?!

    I’ve only seen the new version of 90210, which I thought was quite good, but I never got properly into it. I imagine it was better when Shannon Doherty was a series regular.

  3. For a while my mom would watch 90210 in the afternoon, as did I. XD I never watched it when I was younger, but its not bad. Same with Charmed.

  4. I love a good reality, trashy TV show. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The Challenge is one of my all time favorites!! I’ve quickly become a fan of Jenna’s and Johnny Bananas is my all time FAV. I love that they are so cutthroat this season. Great post!

  5. One Tree Hill is my absolute favorite old show! Sophia Bush was my favorite character as well and I agree with you on the Nathan part of it and Naley was my favorite couple too ๐Ÿ˜€

    I remember all those MTV shows. Wow, I haven’t seen those shows in years. I didn’t know they kept going! lol

    I also really loved Charmed when it aired but I don’t think I’ve ever finished it though. I’ll have to add it to my list of shows to finish. And yes.. I have a list lol
