Best TV Shows of 2013


Plot: Spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow.

I remember writing about Arrow back in November 2012, here. Back then I wasn't entirely convinced that this show was gonna be that good, I liked it but I wasn't too keen on Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen. A year and a bit later I'm now on season 2 and I have to say I LOVE it! Some of the storylines have been incredibly intense and my parents and I just can't get enough of it.

As with any show there are characters that I just can't stand. The first one was Tommy Merlyn, who just annoyed me because of the way he treated Oliver when he found out his secret, and now it Laurel. I wasn't that big a fan of her in the first season but now she's just always got something to say and she just needs to give it a rest.
Good news for me though, it's been renewed for a third season!

Plot: Police officer Rick Grimes leads a group of survivors in a world overrun by zombies.
I also wrote about Walking Dead in this post when season 3 was on, I have no idea what season they're on now as I don't actually watch it anymore. I stopped some watching somewhere during season 3 because I kept missing episodes and never managed to catch up. 
I've seen a few episodes of whatever season they're on as one of my friends watches still watches, but I probably annoy him with all my questions about what's going on. I think the only way I'll get back into it is if I buy the boxset and watch them in my own time.

Plot: A Congressman works with his equally conniving wife to exact revenge on the people who betrayed him.
I've only seen 2 or 3 episodes of this when I went to visit a friend of mine. It was alright but because I hadn't seen it from the beginning I had no clue as to what was going on at all. Don't think it's something I'll go back to watching.

Plot: Seven noble families fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros.
I am obsessed with GOT!!! I first started watching it not long after season 3 started. I was on my mum's iPad and decided to have see what was on Sky Go only to see that they were showing season's 1 and 2, I was hooked after the first episode. 

Now I only just watched the last two episodes of season 3 last week because I knew what was going to happen but I didn't want to see it happen and then have to wait for the next season. But now I'm all caught up and have started watching the new season, which I have to say is just so INTENSE. I honestly don't know how I handled such intensity every week.

Plot: Two brothers follow their father's footsteps as "hunters" fighting evil supernatural beings of many kinds including monsters, demons, and gods that roam the earth.

This is another show I watched when at a friends house, but again it was one I hadn't seen or read much about before. I know a lot of people love this show but I just couldn't get into it, and neither could my friend. They eventually gave up after season 5.

Plots: A crime drama series starring Idris Elba as a near-genius murder detective whose brilliant mind can't always save him from the dangerous violence of his passions.


To provide for his family's future after he is diagnosed with lung cancer, a chemistry genius turned high school teacher teams up with an ex-student to cook and sell the world's purest crystal meth.

I've not seen either of these programs, I know I'm awful you don't have to tell me. Hopefully when I've handed in all my uni work I'll get round to watching them, because I've only heard good things about them.
