Top 10 Roundup #6

Hello everyone, welcome back to another edition of “Top 10 Roundup”! Are you ready for the second of the two-parter I have going here? I sure am.  Let’s dive right in.  It’s 10 of the TV shows that I need to catch up on.

For only diving into the show fairly recently, I managed to make it 10 seasons deep.  Problem is, I don’t remember where I was when I stopped watching the show.  That’s ok though.  I think it was somewhere in the middle.

I can totally blame Beth for getting me into this show, after years of begging, pleading and cajoling to watch it.  Did I still drag my heels on watching it? Sure.  Mostly just to play with her.  I stopped somewhere in the 4th season, and I really want to continue on.

One of several series on this list where I’ve never gotten out of the gate when it comes to being only a few episodes into the series.  But, I love “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, and the show so far has my interest.

Based off the book series of the same name by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan, this innovative take on vampires got me hooked from the very beginning.  Even though it’s a book series I’ve never finished, and only got about halfway through the first season of the show, I’m looking forward to catching up on the series and getting to see the novels appear on the screen.

Started this series twice, and stopped in the same exact place.  Maybe this is a series that I need to watch alone.  I love the characters, who are based on penny dreadfuls that were popular in the era.  I love the episodes that I’ve watched, and can’t wait to progress on in the series.

I love this show! I got into it in late high school/early college, and it is probably the show with the most seasons on my shelf (I’m not counting the modern Doctor Who, where they divided up the new Series into two parts).  To be fair, I own ten seasons of the show, but have only made it into Season 8.

Another one-season start/stop, Gotham is the dark, gritty “origin” show that I can really sink my teeth into.  I love that each of the different seasons, while still keeping in the established world, have different titles for each season.  Correct me if I’m wrong, but not very many non-anthology series do that.

Now, I’ve only seen bits and pieces of the original, or classic, Doctor Who episodes.  And I really want to get into the series.  I want to be able to watch the history and explore all of the established mythos of the various Doctor Who villains.

Last one-seasons start, but considering there’s only…10 episodes of the entire series (which baffles me), I’m still very intrigued about the whole show.  Cumberbatch and Freeman make a very incredible pairing, and give both Sherlock and Dr. Watson a new depth in this modern take on the iconic detective.

It’s the second CSI show on this list.  (Finished CSI: New York, and not going to touch CSI: Cyber).  Now, I know that there are a lot of people who make fun of the show, mainly for Caruso’s delivery before the opening credits.  But, the show is enjoyable, and I want to continue on past the 5th season.

That’s all I’ve got for you for this edition folks! Next week, we’re gonna dive into something different, and something that I want to get into to make myself much more rounded as a nerd.  Until next time, I am the Baumeister, and I have been, obediently yours.
