My All Time Favourite TV Shows

Hey girl hey. And boy.

Exams start in two days and I thought what better way to share a post of my favourite TV shows so everyone can procrastinate even more? Just kidding – please study. 😂 But I got tagged for a tag recently and one of the questions was “what’s your favourite tv show?” which inspired me to make this post because how can you ask that questions without a full on blog post response? 😂 I’ve watched many tv shows in my life (mostly turkish dramas) and I think I’m done with them for now so this list won’t change for a while (I hope).  If you haven’t checked out my last two posts like this, read:

The format starts with turkish dramas, spanish dramas, cartoons, sitcoms and finally teen dramas. Make sure to leave your favourite tv shows in the comments and let’s get starteddd.


 

Turkish Dramas

Tek Türkiye

This is this first tv show I ever watched when I was 5 with our housemaid and literally all I ever remember is this guy called Tariq and then this scene where this woman has to hide her baby so they don’t kill it. It’s so violent and sad like where are my tissues? And I watched like 2 seconds of season 3 and the arabic dub though!! Like I grew up with that but only now I realize how off it sounds. 😂

and I don’t mean this in a cheery way

Ömre Bedel

Omg guys I never knew how graphic this was until I grew up. Basically this girl called Omur’s sister gets married to this guy Cesur (not Ceasar salad 😂) and she tells him on the wedding night that she has someone else in her heart. I think she ends up shooting herself? And to take revenge, Cesur ends up threatening Omur for what her sister did and says if she doesn’t have sex with him, he’ll kill her husband. He harrasses her multiple times but their families know each other so no one would believe her if she told? And then she gets pregnant from him and her husband finds out from a DNA test and omg it’s a very messed up and sad show. It actually came out in 2009 but I watched it in 2012 and back in the day I was like “oh no he’s cuddling with her that’s not nice.” – innocent days, guys. Don’t watch sad turkish dramas. 😂

Cilek Kokusu

Aah this is such a light-hearted comedy I love it! The summary of this is basically opposites attract. Your usual rich man poor girl duo who annoy each other at first but begin to fall in love. Definitely recommend it!! Click here to watch it on Youtube.

Tatli Intikam

The show is basically about this girl who gets left alone at her wedding (her husband ran away) and believes she’s getting karma for hurting a guy’s feelings (rejects him in front of the whole school) back in university. Turns out he’s the guy she fell on at her wedding while chasing the flower deliveryman (a typical cliche way to meet the love of your life) and begs him for forgiveness so she can move on with her life. He says he will on the condition of her helping him with his new restaurant for two months and then they fall in love again yada yada yada. It’s cliche at times but SO good! There’s a plot twist at the final episodes but it has a happy ending. Plus, the girl’s best friends are so funny!

The Tulip Age (Leyla)

Aaah I loved this show so freaking much!! I began watching it in season 2 with my mom and basically there’s this whole love triangle where these two families cross and these two love each other but the girl’s sister loves him too. After the girl gets in a car accident and dies, the guy meets a new girl who is very kind hearted and comes from a poor family. The dead girl’s sister tries to win him over and tries to split between the two. Cinar is so good looking I can’t but he also got three girls pregnant like okay? Player, much? It’s this whole drama and aah they get into this big fight and split again and then this whole thing happens where she loses her memory and then this whole bankruptcy happens and this fight again and I don’t know – it’s a great show though.

More Turkish Dramas

Image result for Paramparça Image result for umutsuz ev kadınları  Image result for kucuk gelin Image result for meryem turkish series Image result for 20 minutes turkish drama

Paramparca (Broken Pieces)

Poor family, rich family, two girls switched at birth. Woman from poor family got abandoned by her husband who fled to Germany and raised the girl thinking its her own. And the rich family raises their child thinking it’s theirs. The husband in the rich family was on the verge of divorce from his wife and never liked her but had to stay with her for the kids. The rich man and poor woman cross paths and there’s this whole family conflict because the poor girl is so bratty and hates her mom and feels like she got her rich life stolen whereas the rich girl has such a kind heart and oml this show is great and so many conflicts come up it’s crazy.

Umutsuz Ev Kadinlari (Depressed Housewives)

This show is a comedy and tells the story of a bunch of women in the same neighbourhood amd I hardly remember anything! I just remember one girl had a blind husband and he started seeing again and I remember at one point this other girl had to hide a dead body. It’s crazy!

Image result for crazy gif

Kucuk Gelin (Child Bride)

Omg you guys this show is so sad!! Basically this woman gives birth to her child and her parents tell her it’s dead and send the baby off to a family on a farm. I forgot why but like who does that?! This girl grows up and I’m too lazy to explain the rest so here: Zehra (Cagla Simsek) is a 14-year old promising girl who is very successful at her school. However, her life turns upside down when she is forced to get married to a young guy from a rich family. Zehra wants to continue her education and does not want to leave her little sister and her parents. Zehra has nothing to do but to get married to the guy whom she has never seen before. After marriage, Zehra starts to live with her new family in the big mansion. She lives with her husband, mother-in-law, aunt-in-law, brother-in-law, and their children altogether in that big mansion. Since Zehra is a young bride in that family, she suffers from the emotional pain. Zehra does not want to continue this pain anymore. For this reason, she decides to leave everything behind. With the help of her school teacher Melek (Gozde Mukavelat), Zehra tries to run away. It’s me now – her teacher turns out to be her mom! They both suffer so much and the guy from the family turns out to be the maid’s son and he’s wealthy and it’s so complex and sad! I got to the end of season 4 I believe but I might watch the last one later.

Meryem

This show is so sad too and I mentioned it in my wrappers but it’s basically about a woman who is falsely accused of murder and it’s actually her future husband who hits the girl in the car and tells Meryem nothing happened that night. The girl who got killed’s fiance is so mad at Meryem and basically wants her dead so he lights her store on fire and kidnaps her and is so violent towards her but because this is a turkish drama, it has to end up romantic. After he lights the place on fire, she goes in to save the little bird and that’s when he knows she didn’t kill his fiance and goes to save her. And when he kidnaps her, he faints because his burns are too bad and instead of escaping she turns around to help him and aww I literally can’t. Like it’s romantic but in a love-hate way? So many things happen and it gradually gets cheesier but the beginning is SO good.

20 Minutes

20 Minutes is the story of a girl who is accused of murdering this politician’s son and is sentenced to jail for 20 years. Her husband is basically finding a way to plan her escape and is convinced she didn’t kill the man. Or did she? Ugh I really want to spoil. Can I? Okay if you want to know how this ends, I’ll tell you in the comments.


Spanish Dramas

Cuidadoconelangel.jpg Image result for triunfo del amor Image result for teresa mexican series

Okay at one point, I watched a bunch of spanish dramas because it was on TV and oml they had formal arabic voiceovers so idk how I didn’t notice how messed up it sounded.

Cuidado Con El Angel

Oml you guys – this tv show is LONG and there’s SO much that happens. Lemme pull up a quick summary off wikipedia.

“María de Jesus, better known as Marichuy, is humble young girl living with Candelaria, a laundress who gave her a home when she was wandering on the streets. Candelaria is like a mother to Marichuy because she never met her biological mother as she was left in an orphanage when she was a baby. The abandonment has led her to believe her mother never loved her. Marichuy’s biological mother, Cecilia Velarde, entrusted her baby to a priest, named Father Anselmo, who took the baby to an orphanage, after she thought she was dying. Now, she regrets making that decision and has spent most of her life searching for her lost child.

Marichuy also hides a horrible secret. At the age of 14, Marichuy ran away from the orphanage, and began to live on the streets, doing her best to survive. One night, she was attacked by a drunk man. She cannot seek justice for what happened to her because she did not see the man’s face very well since she was attacked late at night. This experience, as well as having terrible recurrent nightmares, leaves her with a deep resentment towards men.

Juan Miguel San Roman is a prestigious psychiatrist who has dedicated his time to the rehabilitation of young rebels and criminals. This serves as a distraction from his failing marriage to his wife Viviana and a horrible crime he committed during his youth while he was drunk. Once again, destiny brings Juan Miguel and Marichuy together when she is arrested with a group of friends.”

Okay I won’t reveal more but I never understood her nightmares when I was younger but oml this is sad. It’s such a dramatic love story and so much happens and aah William Levy is so handsome.

 Triunfo Del Amor

Okay the only reason I watched this is because it had the same lead actors as the previous show! I’ll only explain a bit because it’s all over the place but this woman called Victoria is pregnant with her lover’s daughter but because of that, she gets kicked out and lives on the streets. Then this woman plots against her and attempts to kill her and her daughter but instead separates them. Victoria pursued a fashion company and when her daughter (they don’t know each other yet) came to model, Victoria kept giving her a hard time. Victoria’s step son falls in love with Victoria’s daughter and then they find out later and honestly I don’t even know anymore but oh well.

Teresa

I remember nothing from this show. Like absolutely nothing.

So if you want to learn spanish, watch the first one.


 

Cartoons

I was a Nickelodeon girllll! And I watched all these in arabic – memoriessss. I won’t talk about all these but oml Les Miserables turned out to be a play and I watched it in Dubai Opera and omll the animation was my childhood. Btw I watched a bit again but I don’t remember the characters looking like that! A lot of these had different names in arabic like One Piece was just Luffy. And OMG in the night garden, I loved thatttt. Now I watched a clip and it’s really creepy but it’s soothing for kids. I also watched more like Powerpuff Girls, Fairly Odd Parents, Dragon Ball Z but these ones were the basis of my childhood haha.

      Hahahahah they ARE dramatic but there are a few that are really good and a bit on the chill side. I liked 13 reasons why too even tho I had a lot of opinions on some situations but overall, season one was great. Riverdale season one is pretty good! Season 2 is very beating around the bush type and season 3 is a no no. I haven’t watched season 3 tho so I’m not sure. Thank you!

    I’ve always wanted to watch foreign movies that is not from my birthplace. I’m taking Spanish so I will definitely try to find those movies/series/dramas! You make Turkish dramas seem so interesting! Are you Turkish?(it’s ok you don’t have to answer that I am just nosy!)
    TBH I’ll watch ANYTHING but like recently (like 3-4 months ago) I have been binge watching everything from Cartoon Network (except from ben ten).
    I am definitely DISNEY no explanation.
    I had Netflix for like a month and I watched a lot of disenchantment.
    I used to watch Riverdale until the end of Season 2 after that I TRIED to watch season 3 but it was not as good as I wanted it to be!
    Unfortunately if you asked me this a few months ago I would’ve sent you list after list of everything I have watched, but recently I had to knuckle down and do work (But I still watched QUITE ALOT of YouTube!)
    Great post! (as you can tell I like talking about myself so if you are annoyed I don’t blame you)

      IKR it’s so cool. But I just prefer turkish dramas the most. My friends always tell me to watch Korean dramas or indian dramas and I just never get around to it. 😂 Also, I’m not turkish. I’m from Palestine (I mentioned it in a blog tag so I’m not spilling the tea rn 😂) but I grew up in UAE and then came to Canada. I just grew up watching turkish dramas (dubbed in arabic) and only recently I started watching ones with no dub and I LOVE THE LANGUAGE!
      Ughh Disney -_- Jk it’s a great channel, I was just a Nick person. 😂 Omg exactly – Riverdale is idk anymore. SAME HERE! I stopped with the dramas but I still procrastinate on Youtube :((.
      Thank you soo much! GURL no I love reading comments about people, especially long ones so I thank YOU for taking your time to comment on this post. Where are my tissues? 😥 😂 Thank you!!

      I actually haven’t heard of any of these but I watched Victoria’s trailer and it looks so good. I love how the UK still has monarchy it’s so vintage. I watched the Turkish monarchy tv show when I was younger (I’m obsessed with Turkey even tho I’m not from there) and it was like that too. Lots of drama between the queens and ugh lots of wars which I didn’t like watching. But yeah, I’ll have to check them out. Thanks!

    I need to try these Turkish dramas, they sound chamazin’! 🌟✨ I literally watched all those sit coms, Victorious and Sam and Cat all the way! 😊 I literally just got Netflix a couple of days ago, and I’m still on S1 of Riverdale, but it’s great and juicy with drama, murder and romance, and some bromance! If you have Netflix, I recommend Shadowhunters: Mortal Instruments, Gilmore Girls (Rhi recommended it) and Pretty Little Liars (I got scared 😂). Anyways, 13 Reasons Why, I really want to read/watch that, is it good? 💕
    Great post Bayance,
    Amber x
    ps. I emailed you back, not sure if you g9t it but just to say 😊

      They really are!! Omgg yesss they’re amazing!! YES season 1 was so good! Fetus Bayance made a Riverdale Tag after season 1 so I’m sure you might relate – https://bayance.wordpress.com/2017/08/08/riverdale-tag/. It’s a pretty old post so don’t judge. 😂
      Ooh I actually don’t have netflix but I tried watching pretty little liars and it was just a bit too bleh for me. I heard it’s a good show though.
      Season 1 of 13 reasons why – yes! But be careful because some scenes are graphic. Season 2 is just a no no for me but I watched a few scenes. The show made me mad sometimes to be honest but the acting is really good. I haven’t heard much about the book but a friend of mine read it and said it’s really good. You should try it too!
      Thank you so much!! And haha I thought it was a new one but then I realized you sent this 2 days ago so yes, I got your email. 😂 Looking forward to collabing.

        They look really good! 💛 I read it and commented, it’s a great post Bayance, maybe I’ll make one! 😊💕
        That’s cool, I only got it a couple of days ago, and now I don’t think I could live without it… 😂 Yep, it is a good show, but I get the ‘bleh’ part, that’s how I felt sometimes 😊 Oooo, sounds inappropriate Bayance, you sure you should be watching it? JK, I think I’m roughly our age 😉 I’ll definitely be reading t book before the show, I’m just that kinda of person! Lolz, don’t worry, I do that ALL the time and feel super bad that people have put in the effort to email me 🤦🏼‍♀️
        Me too!

        Okaaaay I grew up with turkish dramas that had scenes I didn’t understand so I’m much more mature now haha. But I definitely prefer movies that aren’t as graphic so I don’t have to skip every two seconds. I am of age to watch stuff but it’s a bit uncomfortable when it goes on too long. Same here! But if there’s a movie, I don’t bother with the book. Ikrrr!

    Girl, Imma go grab some popcorn and watch all your Turkish dramas now!! I honestly don’t watch a whole lot of TV, because a) I don’t even have one and b) I don’t really trust Netflix’s ratings, so most of what I watch is Studio C (YouTube comedy show, it’s amazing), The Great British Baking Show (because, well, baking) and Death In Paradise (British murder mystery show). I loved this post, and I’m praying your exams go well!
    Neat Writey! (I’m changing it up)

    I used to be OBSESSED with turkish drama, I remember watching them with my mom! The one I remember watching clearly was: the forbidden love, which I regretted watching because it ended sadly.
    Besides, I still watch cartoons! Danny Phantom used to be my favorite one. Lmao I watched everything on T.V in arabic like till now. One piece and Naruto used to be my favorites. I remember my bro calling me Luffy because I’m “stupid” but I keep telling him that Luffy is the best character and no can be like him. OH GOD we were kids and would fight over everything xD. I still watch one piece online but there are over 900 episodes so I watch rarely.
    I loved iCarly, Victorious and Hannah Montana.. they’re my favorites of all time, I still feel sad at it ended though.

    I’ve heard so many good things about turkish dramas. I should actually watch some. XD. I actually haven’t watched a lot of these shows because my go-to genres are sci-fi/paranormal/fantasy, cop shows, action/comedies, dramas and spy shows. I did watch a few episodes of a teen drama once and it was SO BAD so I didn’t watch any teen dramas for the longest time. I should give some a chance, though. I guess I was a Disney girl since I have never watched a Nickelodian show, but I have only watched one Disney shows. It’s a sitcom called Liv and Maddie and is actually pretty funny. My favorite TV shows are Battlestar Galactica [the reboot series] and it is BY FAR the best show I have ever seen. It’s like TV literature. I mean, it’s sci-fi/action but with A LOT of good drama and character development. I also like watching NCIS, Chuck, Burn Notice, Longmire, The Librarians and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Totally recommend all of them.
