TV Shows 30 Day(doing it all at once too) Challenge

Since it Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary, I thought I'd do a TV post to celebrate!! :D
First, the Doctor Who theme song! :D

Also, before I start, remember that this list if 'TV shows" only; my overall list, and movie and book lists, are definitely different(like Obi-Wan Kenobi is my favorite character ever over all).
Day 01 - A show that should never have been canceled

Definitely Firefly!! :D Fox, you are SO STUPID for canceling this show! Joss Whedon was a genius and this show had one of the best TV casts ever- this show could have become as equally as awesome as Buffy the Vampire Slayer if we had been able to get more seasons. I am thankful we got the awesome "Serenity" film, though, since most shows cancelled after one season wouldn't get that amount of closure.

Also, Kyle XY- it did air for three seasons but, seriously, YOU DON'T END A SHOW WITH A CLIFFHANGER THAT NEVER GETS EXPLAINED!

Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching

Buffy the Vampire Slayer(or any other Joss Whedon show). If you get passed the cheesy title and some of the campy effects of the first season, you'll find a show full of depth that is rare on TV now days. From realistic, awesome characters(the female characters are done especially well) to the handling of various subject matter, and one of the best portrayls of death and the dealing with it, this is a show everyone(above a certain age, of course; this show isn't for little children) should watch at some point. The same goes for Firefly and Angel(though Angel is kind of something for only a certain type of audience. Some will love it some will not).

Day 03 - Your favorite new show (aired this TV season)

Marvel's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." So far I've been very impressed with it and I look forward to seeing where it's headed :D.

Day 04 - Your favorite show ever

Well, I kind of have several.

Avatar: The Last Airbender

Buffy the Vampire Slayer


Once Upon A Time

Doctor Who


Angel(season five cast; several important characters aren't in this image).

Downton Abbey


Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Day 05 - A show you hate

I don't think I HATE any TV shows I've actually started(since I only start something if it looks good)
but here are some ones I think look like something I would dislike.

"Scandal". Seriously, why would I want to watch a show about political scandals? If I wanted to hear about politicians having affairs, I'd go read the autobiography of Newt Gingrigh or something :/

"Revenge". I don't know, it just looks weird. My aunt said it was annoying since it was a rich girl and she can use the money easily to get revenge for her father's death, unlike a woman in poverty, who would have a harder time of it. Plus, it looked too 'sexed up' for me(and I watched Buffy and Glee).

"The Vampire Diaries". While I do like vampires when done well(BTVS, Ats, Icemark trilogy, etc), ever since the irritating Twilight craze, the amount of vampire shows/books has gotten way out of hand.

Others shows I'd include would be "True Blood" and "Breaking Bad".

Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite TV show

Avatar: The Last Airbender - Sozin's Comet: Avatar Aang- It was an AMAZING ending to a beautiful TV show. It was pretty much everything I wanted(though I do want to know about Zuko's Mom...) and it gave you that sad, yet satisfied feeling of a show well done. I also loved all of the finales, The Ember Island Players, and most of seasons 3 and 2

Buffy: Vampire Slayer - Tough one but...I'm going to go with "Innocene". That episode was the one that showed me an even deeper level of physiological study than we had previously seen. Plus, it was a very emotional journey for all the characters and the ending was definitely badass. I also loved The Body, Becoming part 1 and 2, Passion, Chosen, The Body, Once More With Feeling, The Gift, Graduation Day part one and two, I Only Have Eyes For You, Grave, Tabula Rasa, Dead Things, Prophecy Girl, Nightmares, Out of Sight Out of Mind, and many others I am most likely forgetting.

Once Upon A Time - Skin Deep. Period. That was the episode that took the show from a good show to a great one. I also loved The Outsider, The Return, The Stranger, Desperate Souls, Manhattan, The Crocodile, Lacey, And Straight On Til Morning, Fruit of the Poisonous Tree, Think Lovely Thoughts, and Dark Hollow.

Doctor Who - Doomsday. Also The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit, Journey's End, The Last of the Timelords, The Sound of Drums, The Parting of the Ways, End of Time(1 and 2), Utopia, The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, Bad Wolf, The Christmas Invasion, and various other episodes.

Sherlock - The Reinbach Fall. Also, Hound of the Baskervilles and A Study in Pink.

Angel - Hero, I've Got You Under My Skin, Hole in the World, Five by Five/Sanctuary, Smile Time, You're Welcome, Not Fade Away, Darla, There's No Place like Plrtz Grlb, Lullaby, Waiting in the Wings, Souless, Why We Fight, etc

Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Obi-Wan/Hardeen arc, Mortis trilogy, Citadel trilogy, Mystery of a Thousand Moons, The Gungan General, Innocents of Ryloth, Carnage of Krell, Legacy of Terror, and Destroy Malvolence.

Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite TV show

Avatar: The Last Airbender - I'd say Nightmares and Daydreams; a bit too childish for me.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer -

Once Upon A Time: What happened to Frederick and Child of the Moon

Doctor Who - The Girl in the Fireplace, Family of Blood, and Love & Monsters

Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Mandalore arc, Massacre, Brothers, and Revenge

Day 08 - A show everyone should watch

Anything by Joss Whedon, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Doctor who, Downton Abbey, and Sherlock.

Day 09 - Best scene ever

"Anakin...don't follow me". This entire scene in "Friends and Enemies" was amazing. Definitely gave me chills.

The awesome, epic, amazing fight scene/ending of Buffy the Vampire Slayer

This scene in "The Body"

This scene in Buffy...pure awesome! :D

The Ember Island Players sequence in ATLA. SUCH GOOD STUFF! XD

Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving

I usually expect to enjoy shows that I watch, but I have to say "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Avatar: The Last Airbender" definitely surprised me. Oh, I know one now! Doctor Who!

Day 20 - Favorite kiss

None, since I HATE kiss scenes(yeah, I'm 18 and I still cover my face XD)

Day 21 - Favorite ship

Rumplestiltskin and Belle from OUAT

Rose and The Doctor(9 and 10) from Doctor Who

Dean and Castiel from Supernatural

Anna and Mr. Bates from Downton Abbey

Day 22 - Favorite series finale

Buffy the Vampire Slayer! It's one of the only shows I know of that was able to finish on its own accord; the way the creators wanted to. And it was PERFECT! :D The seventh season was a little weak, but it totally made up for it in this finale. Couldn't have asked for a better ending. :D

Day 23 - Most annoying character

Satine. Definitely
And, Umm. I detested Warren from BTVS(scumbag).

Day 24 - Best quote

There are so many, I couldn't name them all

Day 25 - A show you plan on watching (old or new)

Star Trek
Battlestar Gallactica
Babylon 5
Sarah Jane Adventures
Kyo Kara Moah(which I've started)
Death Note
Sleepy Hollow
and several other shows

Day 26 - What the...? Season finale

Kyle XY- just don't end a show like that...

Angel- it was odd, but it worked for the show's overall message.

Day 27 - Best pilot episode

Angel's. It was awesome from the get go and I knew instantly I was going to love the show(plus, "Can you fly?" Bwhahahahahaha! XD)

Day 28 - First TV show obsession

I don't know, maybe Avatar: The Last Airbender or Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Day 29 - Current TV show obsession

Current? Hmmm...Once Upon A Time and Supernatural

Day 30 - Saddest character death
SPOILERS for Torchwood

I'm not sure why, but the death of Toshiko and Owen really got to me on this show. Usually, when I watch a character death, I feel sad but I won't cry. Or, if I do, it's just the eyes and throat burning kind. This one, I actually had to stop myself from crying; the scene was so well acted and you just felt so bad for the characters(and they aren't even in the same place!) and...yeah, that's good writing and acting right there.


  1. Fun tag! Cool answers too! :D I think I will answer a few of the questions in this comment.

    Day 03 - Your favorite new show (aired this TV season)
    Agents of SHIELD for sure and the Blacklist behind it.

    Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving:
    The Walking Dead. Didn't expect to like it, but ended up being my second favorite TV series ever.

    Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show: Infinite Stratos. I know its stupid but I find so funny. But I would never recommend to anyone though.

    Day 22 - Favorite series finale: Code Geass. Wow, what a profound and emotional ending to one of my favorite series ever. Also Cowboy Bebop, which had an almost as awesome finale.

    Day 26 - What the...? Season finale: Neon Genesis Evangelion. After a fantastic series, it ends with an overly mind bendy finale that still confuses me.

    Day 28 - First TV show obsession: Stargate SG-1 and Doctor Who

    Day 30 - Saddest character death: Anyone on Code Geass and the Walking Dead.

    That was fun! Maybe I should try this tag sometime. :D


    1. Thank you!! :D I agree, I thought it was a pretty cool one too! :D.
      Great answers! :D Yeah, I know some shows like that..XD.

  2. This is really cool! Enjoyed reading all your answers. :)
