Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week’s topic is Top Ten TV-themed. I’m choosing to split it up into two Top Fives. Top Five TV shows I’m looking forward this fall and Top Five books I wish were TV shows.
Shows I’m looking forward to airing:
5. Timeless. I love time travel so this crew of people going through time to fight criminals to make sure the current timeline isn’t altered is definitely something to appeals to me.
4. This Is Us. This is my pick for feelgood, probably going to break my heart show.
3. The Good Place. I never say no to Kristen Bell on my screen.
2. Conviction. This one has a cast that I’ve watched in other shows. From Hayley Atwell to Shawn Ashmore to Emily Kinney. I’ve liked shows in this legal drama investigating possible wrongful convictions before so I’m hopeful.
1. Pure Genius. I love medical shows and this one made me tear up in the previews. It could end up being overly cheesy and ridiculous but I’m hopeful.
Books I would love to see as TV shows:
5. Starflight – Melissa Landers. I love Sci-Fi shows but it seems like they either get cancelled after a season or something happens to make me lose interest after a season(don’t kill my favourite, make believable bad guys, why is that so hard!!). This book would be a great starting point and with a sequel coming out soon, there’s lots of material.
4. The Marked Girl – Lindsey Klingele. This year seems to be heavy on time travel shows. Maybe next year it’ll be shows that travel between worlds and this book is one that could start that trend.
3. Snow Like Ashes – Sara Raasch. Maybe next year is fantasy’s turn. This has been one of my favourite fantasy series and I’m not sure a movie could do it justice with all the character and world building involved. A nice long season on TV would be awesome.
2. Asylum – Madeleine Roux. I love being creeped out and this series did that over and over again. It would look so cool on my TV.
1. Something Real – Heather Demetrios. Reality shows are so popular and the show UnReal, which looks at the producers of a Bachelor-like show manipulating the contestants, is popular so it seems like a good time for a look at how growing up on a reality show affects a child.
