Marathons… not just for runners anymore!

18 Dec

You know what’s truly sad? Staring at this space does not magically make a post appear. Especially when I get so easily distracted by the marathon of Eureka running on my TV.

Oh… wait.

I like to marathon TV shows. You know that, I know that. It’s no secret. But not every show is worth a marathon. So let’s take a look at some of my favorite shows to marathon…

*Eureka

Since this one is currently on, let’s start here.

I first watched this series a year ago and loved it. The characters, the dialogue, the stories… everything. It’s quirky and fun. And I just adore the chemistry- especially between Colin Ferguson and Ed Quinn’s characters during the first two seasons. And any episode with Niall Matter’s Zane. Not gonna lie- there are some good looking men on the show. And ladies. But the cast (regular and guests) are  amazingly talented.

I think I’ve seen this series maybe… 4 times (counting this time). And it still gets me caught up in it. Love it!

*Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel

Joss Whedon’s first television series(plural!) are still favorites. Brilliant writing- both in story and dialogue- and some wonderful performances keep these series on the go-to list. Yeah, some things are dated- the height on the jeans, for instance, is super entertaining to watch; the cellphones, etc- but that’s never been the stuff that kept a person watching. We watched because we connected to the characters.

High school (and real life, in Angel) was hell.

*Firefly

Yes- it’s another Whedon series. And yes, it’s less than a season in length. But… if you’ve seen it, you know.

You can’t stop the signal.

*Criminal Minds

It’s a procedural, yeah, but it entertains me. Except for that one scene where I want to throttle Agent Morgan. But that’s neither her nor there- there’s something magical about this series. It’s a procedural… there are literally tons of them available to watch. But this one keeps audiences coming back because the cast has something… special.

*NCIS

Another procedural that I can’t pass up on is the Mark Harmon captained series. OK… I was annoyed with the loss of Ziva because I’m a diehard “Tiva” fan. But the series has proven that it is more than a single piece and that it can utilize the rest of the pieces in order to keep an audience.

Trust in Harmon.

*Smallville

Well, you know we love this show here on NerdLush- Stewart’s been recapping it for months! There’s something so innocent about Clark as he matures into the hero he needs to be. Love it.

I’m absolutely positive that I could go on about more series I love to marathon but I feel the need to stop here and here from you about which shows you love to camp out and watch!
