Front Five Friday: The TV Monkeys After My Bananas

Front Five Friday is a feature in which I rebel against Top Ten Tuesday—'cause really how HARD is it to pick ten—and pick five things of whatever theme I choose. Because I'm the one rocking the Bossypants, yo. 

TV shows, TV shows, TV SHOWS. Can't get enough TV. Reading isn't the only that prunes any chance for a social life. I WATCH ENTIRELY TOO MUCH TV. And I don't mind it one bit. I'm not a dramatic person by nature, nor do I attract any, but I have a taste for watching other peeps' dramalicious lives. The tension, the angstiness, the bickery and Sexy Times, all of that makes these shows worth it. Or, at least, the ones targeted to YAs. And others I just plain love. There's mystery, awesome twists, and so much more that keeps my eyes fastened to the screen.

I am IN NEED of more from:

1) Once Upon a Time - YA'LL. This. Flipping. Show. I have never... Good golly, I've never watched a show with so many nods to the original fairy tales while still keeping it fresh and exciting. I've never watched a show about fairy tales, period. Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold makes me crazy with lust after his character. He is an evil genius. He is bad ass. He's always two steps ahead, and has a very small fire of vulnerability. He is DA BOMB. For serious. And don't even get me started on the Evil Queen/Regina. Sure, yeah, I may want to punch the bish in the face, BUT YO. Bish is fierce AND DEADLY. What I Want to See Next Episode: YOU GUYS. It's the season finale *sobs*. But I WANT EMMA TO BELIEVE. To believe that Storybrook is chockfull of every fairy tale character imaginable. That would be FLY.

2) The Legend of Korra - HOOOOLLLAAA. I am in superlove with this show. IT WASN'T EVEN SUPPOSED TO BE AS GOOD as The Last Airbender. I should be upset, maybe. Because, you know, The Last Airbender was freshness and shizz. It was insanely wonderful and oh gosh I loved it so much. But, peeps, I'm not gonna lie: The Legend of Korra I'm digging a WHOLE LOTS more... and it's only been FOUR EPISODES. What the what, right? But, Korra is the epitome of badassery, the creators TOTALLY UPPED the world-building. And MAKO. No one went wrong with him. He makes me feel... womanly.

3) The Vampire Diaries - CW twisted up the original books AND I THANK THEM. I never really liked The Vampire Diaries books, but, boy, did CW do a fab job adapting everything to TV. They give me boys I adore (DAEMON SALVATORE and Jeremy Gilbert, anyone? AND YO, Alaric Saltzman as a bad boy vampire hunter is THE STUFF.), a romance to root for (Delena, FTW!), mysteries that tense my shoulders, plot spins that make my heart hurt, and beyond EVERY WEEK. There's character growth and seriously steamy Sexy Times. LURVE.

4) Melissa and Joey - THE FUNNY. Oh my G, the FREAKING FUNNINESS. Melissa/Mel and Joey/Joe are one heck of a firecracker for tv comedy couple, let me tell you. The loathing, the sarcasm and dry wit, the physical comedy, and the outright silly outrageous things they say and the banter between them make this show SIDESPLITTING HILARIOUS. The kids are coolness too, but it's Mel Burke and Joe Longo that star the show. WHO'S TUNING IN MAY 30?

5) Jane By Design - This show made me FEEL so MANY THINGS. There's such emotion, quirkiness, and hilarity all mixed up with the flyness of fashion! Jane and Ben Quimby? BEST, most bonded sibling pair ever. I've cried over these two, because they get each other even as they have hardships toeing the line between big brother/little sister and guardian/child. And BILLY. Jane's best friend since they were kindergarteners. Their friendship is so layered, so deep, so intune that you almost CAN'T HELP wanting a romance, yet at the say time you want them to keep the way they are, perfectly intact, totally untouchable no matter the drama. The mean bishes at work and school, the fashion, the opportunities, and the crazy shizz Jane has to pull off keep this show intense, exciting, and just downright fabulous. What I want to know? WHEN THE HECK IS ABC BRINGING THEM BACK?
And, sadly, THAT concludes this week's Front Five Friday. I'm not sure what I'll be talking about next week—maybe current favorite reads? If you have any ideas, let me KNOW IT!

So. What did you think? What TV shows drive you bananas because they are so awesome?What TV show characters would make your top five bedmates list? Let me know down in the comments section. Don't be shy!

ONCE UPON A TIME!! ASHER! I LOVE THIS SHOW. SO MUCH. Although... um.... Rumpel/Gold is AMAZING, like, SO fascinating and deliciously creepy, but lusty feelings? Seriously? You are so weird. REGINA. I lovehate that woman with passion <3 And BIRKOFF. He has totally become one of my favourite characters on tv in season two.

I also hardcore love some old (cancelled *sob*) favourites like Veronica Mars and Kyle XY.

ONCE UPON A TIME. You know, I started off really sceptical about that show. But it turned out to be AWESOME (it's creepy you like Gold though :P). And THE LEGEND OF KORRA! <3. I mean, there are no words. The Vampire Diaries is also awesome. That last episode...o_O. Delena forever! :P

Asher Knight said...

Don't worry, Brodie, the whole thing showed up in my email AND IT MADE ME DIE WITH LOVE AND LAUGHTER. Yes, I have a huge crush on Rumpel. So? :P DON'T BE A HATER XD

Asher Knight said...

 IT'S NOT CREEPY THAT I DIG THE GOLD MAN. Rumpel is the all time amazing character on that show! AND YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL about The Legend of Flipping Korra. Love that girl, love that boy, and everything in between. I KNOOOOWWW. DELENNNNNNNAAA, even though she's been ticking me off >.<

Asher Knight said...

 HOW COME YOU CAN'T WATCH ONCE UPON A TIME? This is madness. And totally UNFAIR. Look it up on youtube! Or, better, ABC the next day!

Asher Knight said...

HOW ARE YOU BEHIND?? You can't fall behind, Giselle, because the episodes have been getting CRAY CRAY. For reals. AND MELISSA AND JOEY. They are HIlarious. No lies, bro.

Asher Knight said...

 OF COURSE IT'S NOT WEIRD. In fact, I think it's AWESOME. No person can have too much TV shows to tune into... Or they can. WHATEVS. It doesn't change that you're cool for watching all of these babies :D
