The brotherly relationship between the two leads is also brilliant and complex. It has fantastic music! A rocking black 67 Impala car. It’s a must see. Nuff said.

At first she doesn’t care, but then a series of murders and strange goings on leave her tangled in situations of life and death which fluctuate throughout the series, and make her wonder if she is on the right path.
Why I like it: It’s fun, it’s romantic and it’s easy to watch. And of course it also has two extremely hot guys in it who are fighting and competing for the love of one girl. And to top it all off, every episode is action packed, I don’t believe there has ever been a boring episode!

What they don’t expect however, is for the flight to crash, leaving them stranded on a deserted island.

Polar bears, strange noises, a buried hatch. Can these strange occurrences be explained? And will they ever make it off the island?
Why I like it: Lost isn’t like any other show I have seen before, it’s completely unique. Every episode keeps you guessing, when one question is answered it is replaced by ten more new questions. The mysterious events are baffling and intriguing, definitely not one to overlook!

To pay for Rory’s school tuition Loralai must suffer her worst nightmare, Friday night dinners with Rory’s grandparents. This makes for a really fun family dynamic and an endless stream of funny scenes.
Why I like it: The mother daughter relationship is great. I love and can also relate to all the small town quirks and characters. I love that Rory is a bookworm, in fact I was so inspired by her I decided to take part in the Rory Gilmore Book Challenge.
