Fave TV Shows 2012

Cute Mindy

Indulgent post here! Below is a list of my favorite shows  of 2012. Not necessarily new shows or even the best shows, just what I liked.

American Pickers
Downton Abbey*
The Good Wife
Happy Endings
How I Met Your Mother
Mad Men
The Mindy Project
New Girl
The Walking Dead

What I like about this list is the variety of female characters in a variety of roles. From Alicia Florrick as the good wife to Baby Judith as the new hope against zombies, there is no shortage of complex characters in different types of roles. Many of these actors are great at comedy and drama. Just a great time to own a television.

Only a few short weeks until series 3 of Downton Abbey!

That’s what I like! How about you? What shows are you watching?

Happy 2013!


*Edited to add. I knew I’d forget something(s)!

    Good list! I’ve been watching and loving Downton Abbey and Walking Dead as well (and American Pickers! I love those guys).
    I’ll tentatively nominate Breaking Bad- I have a love-hate relationship with that show. I really want to know what happens next, but I cannot stand some of the characters any more.
    Other than that, I’d say Futurama, American Horror Story, and Fringe would be on my list for 2012!

      Excellent picks as well! What do you think about not liking characters? Does it make it a more enjoyable show or just make you frustrated when you should be enjoying? I always find it aggravating but then I keep watching anyway, so they must be doing something right!

        If there’s at least one character I can relate to and who seems to be working on their situation instead of being selfish, then that encourages me to watch. Right now I’m at a point where I dislike all of the characters, so that’s caused me to back off a bit (so I might be watching one episode a week, as if it aired, instead of a few a day thanks to Netflix). Maybe I wouldn’t feel this way if I wasn’t watching it in such a condensed way!

        Interesting viewpoint. Watching them in a row really does affect the viewing process. Maybe the subject for another post!

        Thanks for commenting. 🙂
