Sunday nights used to be the worst time of the week, in my opinion. They were the calm before the storm that is the normal work/school week. Since I've started embracing two fantastic television shows though, they have become my favorite part of the week.
Sundays with Game of Thrones and Silicon Valley aren't just normal Sundays, they're days of joy. Those of you who don't watch either of these fine shows (Game of Thrones in particular) are probably more than tired of hearing about them, so I apologize. I was once one of you. I didn't see what all the fuss was about. Then I sat down this summer and watched through the first four seasons of Thrones, and oh my god was I a fool. No tv show has forced me to turn in each week to see what happens next, since the glory days of The Office.
I'm not sure if Thrones and The Office will ever be able to be truly compared in my mind because they're so different, but I would still say The Office first if you forced me to pick a tv show. Season two of the Dunder Mifflin Scranton brach's antics is quite possibly one of the best seasons of television of all time. Each and every Thursday night, I would finish up homework quickly/not do it at all in order to watch, and I would usually watch the episode immediately again right after it was over. I cried a little bit during Michael's last episode and the last episode of the series. The Office did to me what television is designed to do; it made me feel for the fictional characters as if they were real people right in front of me.
Because it's so hard to really pick a favorite tv show, I'll even open today's question up a bit and let you choose your top three. So for the sake of adding to the discussion, my top three are The Office, Game of Thrones, and Scrubs. Now it's your turn. What are you three favorite tv shows and why?
