i love watching tv series, and i love talking about them just as much. so this is me doing just that...feel free to leave me recommendations. as long as it's somewhat gay.
my top ten

10. brooklyn nine nine
i only discovered brooklyn 99 earlier this year but it deserves to be included in my top ten because of how much this show has made me laugh. also-- gina linetti. it's a sit com about cops and i personally think it's very funny without being offensive and it's such a 'feel-good' watch. this was one of the fastest binges i've done. i would watch it while showering because that's about how long one episode is. if you're looking to laugh -- 10/10 would recommend this show.
9. la casa de papel
i've known about "money heist" longer than i've started to watch it (only this year). when it came out, everyone at my previous company talked about it and my boss even loves the show. the thing is, i had this disgusting need to always try and be singular in all aspects of life so i always stayed away from what was popular. earlier this year though, i wanted to learn spanish again, and so i tried watching this show. after finishing one episode i realize why it's gained such popularity.
as it's english title suggests, it's a show about a heist. a group of people wearing masks rob a bank and point guns at each other every five seconds. doesn't that sound like something you'd want to watch?
8. one day at a time
another sitcom, as i like them so much, apparently. one day at a time follows the lives of a latinx family. it's in my list because it talks about really important issues while still managing to be a lighthearted show. there's also queer rep, which is always a plus. (actually most of the shows in my top ten has queer rep because i'm gay the fuck) it's funny as heck too!
7. gentleman jack
the only reason why this is only seventh is because it's still a brand new show and has only had one season yet but my god do i love suranne jones so much as anne lister that i fell completely in love with this show.
of course, anything with a middle aged woman as a lead actress would sell it for me. i love everything about it. the acting, the accent, the setting, the theme, the story telling... everything! oh and the fourth fucking wall. every time anne lister looks at the camera and through my gay soul i feel like i'm going to fucking melt.
6. the 100
currently on it's 7th season, the 100 is a post apocalyptic sci-fi. 100 (101 actually, with bellamy) delinquents were sent to the ground to
die see if the earth would be livable. then shit happens. shit like murder, genocide, even cannibalism. i love this show because of the shortlived clexa the plot, even though most of the time i have no idea what's going on or why people had to die. i love it even more now with diyoza in it. she's a hot ass terrorist.
5. the l word
girls with tight dresses who drag with moustaches, chicks driving fast, ingenues with long lashes.
women who long, love, lust
women who give. this is the way, it's the way that we live: talking, laughing, loving, breathing, fighting, fucking, crying, drinking, riding, winning, losing, cheating, kissing, thinking, dreaming. this is the way. it's the way that we live. it's the way that we live and love.
~another thing: helena peabody will forever be my imaginary girlfriend.
4. orange is the new black
oitnb is probably the first ever show i've watched with queer rep. when i found out about this show, i was a young 16 year old trying to get through university as a straight passing girl with long hair. i was desperate for gay content during these days because i had just started embracing my queerness. i was still identifying as bisexual that time and was rather vocal about it. i remember being so obsessed with alex vause that i even had a shirt made with her face on. i still have it to this day but her face definitely doesn't look like hers anymore. this would be my third pick if the story didn't go on the way it did. i watched a youtube video somewhere that said it started feeling like torture p*rn which--after rewatching the fourth season--i'd have to agree. nevertheless, this still deserves to be higher up in my list because of how how much it meant to me with regard to my sexuality.
3. orphan black
this is another sci-fi series. an australian girl discovers that she is a clone after witnessing the suicide of a girl who yeeted herself in front of a train.
this is such a good tv show because 1. tatiana maslany is a helluvan actress. 2. the story is awesome. 3. the ending was optimistic.
let me not forget to mention that it is also gay as fuuuuck.
2. grey's anatomy
i'm sure most of you already know of or have heard about this show. grey's anatomy has been running since i was in the first grade and it baffles me to think about that because i only started watching it in early 2017 . for those of you who have no idea what this show is about: it's a soap about hot doctors who have sex all the time everywhere and talk about their feelings while cutting open someone's body. if you're curious and want to know more but don't want to go through all 16(now going to be 17) seasons. watch this:
it pretty much sums the whole show up. i love this show because of it's queer content and very distinct dialogue.
the reason why this is high up in my list is because i've grown an emotional attachment to it. i mean, after watching all those seasons, who wouldn't? even though this is to be blamed for my hypochondria, i still love it so much. although i do admit the earlier seasons were much better than the later ones. (if you watch the show you'd know what i mean)
wentworth is a tv show about women in prison. unlike the more mainstream prison tv show oitnb, it does not have much of a comedic undertone. the first few seasons follow the tragic life of bea smith who was incarcerated for attempted murder.
it was in 2015 that i first learned about this show and if i remember correctly, someone from habbo actually recommended it to me. little did i know this australian drama would change my life forever. (ok a bit of an exaggeration but i reaaaally love this show). at the time, i was still in the early stages of coming out and looked for queer representation everywhere i could. wentworth doesn't shy away from that. there's a lot of gayness. which is obviously amazing for me; but what truly made me fall in love is the amazing story line and the way it's delivered and acted out.i'll try not to spoil the plot but if you want to learn more about wentworth click here.
