I love TV shows, movies just can't compare. That being said, I haven't watched many TV shows, I'm picky and most don't appeal. (No vampires, romance shows for instance, just don't like them, most popular shows fit in those categories, but hey this is my list and my opinions, not anyone else's) Currently these are my favorite shows starting with the greatest show out there:



1. 24

(9 seasons and TV movie, 2001-2010, 2014)



24 is the best show of all time! It's easily #1, none can come even close for me ever! Agent Jack Bauer works for CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) dealing with (terrorists) assassination...

I love the show of 24 and I decided to rank the my favorite characters, this time minus spoilers for those who may have not seen the show or may have not seen all of it. Here goes with the first (and obvious) favorite character:


Jack Bauer –

Where in the world do you start with Jack Bauer? First of all he is the best TV character of all time, barring no one. He suffers tragic loss and extreme pain and torture (as well as inflicting some himself) takes out the bad guys and saves the world from horrific terror attacks, all in 24 hours, time after time! He is very loyal, shows no mercy and looks...

Game shows are all the rage right now and ABC’s “To Tell The Truth” hosted by Anthony Anderson is no exception.

They take turns asking probing questions in the hopes of tripping up the impostors and revealing the truth.

Can’t get enough Presidential political campaigning in your life right now? Well, you’re in luck because a battle for the White House recently kicked-off on Season 3 of the Netflix series “Designated Survivor.”

After acquiring the top job when everyone else in the line of succession was killed, President Thomas Kirkman (played by Keifer Sutherland) now finds himself needing to campaign for re-election. Going from a novice to Commander-in-Chief with some experience under his belt doesn’t necessarily guarantee the fickle public will keep him there.

As the second season of the CW’s rebooted soapy drama “Dynasty” recently came to a close, fans got a proposal, two corpses, a secret love child, $1 business deal and a murder framing that never actually took place. That’s a lot of drama, people!

And right before all of that during the Thicker Than Money episode, actress Claire Lanay donned her microphone and eager attitude as Kathleen, a reporter on the hunt for the latest juicy story revolving around Blake Carrington and his family.

Think you’ve seen Claire before? Well, she was the hellacious party girl in the feature film, “Stretch,”...

‘Tis the season for a good scare and nothing offers that up quite like a true-crime TV tale. Until now, these shows have delivered reenactments of serial murderers committing hardcore crimes.

Emmy-nominated exec producer Kim Bondi and director Fab Filippo unleash the new series “Bizarre Murders,” which focuses on Fargo-like capers with shocking twists and unusual characters.

Actress Drea King stars as Detective Kerns in the what-were-they-thinking episode All Brawn, No Brains. Kerns is tasked with piecing back together the scattered clues after a gang botches not just one, but many kidnappings...

Most people love a classic ‘who-done-it’ type of story. Investigation Discovery (ID) has been playing into that by serving up true-crime tragedies with their popular series link

Actress link has appeared in not one, but two episodes of this homicidal re-enactment show about friends murdering friends. The most recent titled “Band of Brothers,” finds Christine as a single mother faced with the brutal death of her son.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a popular animated show that stars 6 female ponies.

Plot

Twilight Sparkle is a student of Princess Celestia who moves to Ponyville to finally get some friends.

The 6 of them learn important lessons along with Spike (Twilight's helper), the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Starlight Glimmer, and Discord.

A show about ponies learning lessons seemed like a repetitive and boring plot, but this show is oddly very special. Although the lessons may not be very interesting...

No, this is not just your imagination playing tricks on you. It actually is the end of the road for TNT’s “Perception” when the final episode airs on March 17th.

Actor Josh Coxx returns for the final episodes on the show but who exactly is he? That’s what audiences are wondering after discovering he isn’t the FBI Agent he claimed to be after all.

Of course, female fans remember Josh from his earlier days as the super sexy midwife Peter Riggs on “Strong Medicine.” The sci-fi set will recall him as Lt. David Corwin on “Babylon 5” and the Marvel fans embrace him for his turn...

New York has a long history with delivering some very funny television shows starring some very big personalities. Think “Seinfeld,” “30 Rock,” “Friends,” and tons of others that have brought big laughs as they offered up crazy stories about The Big Apple. And, they’ve also given opportunity for hundreds of actors to show off their comedy chops.

One such actor is Kyle Klaus, who steps into the small screen comedy arena with appearances on two very different shows. He recently helped launch season two of SyFy’s oddball dark comedy “Happy”; and coming up, he joins the hilarious...

Today you’re chasing down bad guys and tomorrow you are the bad guy. That’s the life of make-believe that every actor enjoys.

One such actor is Scott Subiono, who recently portrayed good guy DEA Agent Tony Marino leading the hunt for drug dealers in the second season of John Singleton’s FX series “Snowfall.” Set in the 80’s, the show sets forth a gritty and dangerous tale of the rise of crack cocaine in Los Angeles.

I just finished reading a list of the "greatest" LGBT characters ever on TV. I was not impressed. So I decided that instead of wasting time bitching about their lame list, I'd just make my own. Weird, huh? ;D

This was originally going to be a list of 10. Then I kept thinking of more. I finally managed to cut myself off at 25. There are a lot of great LGBT characters out there, okay? Anyway, these shouldn't contain any show spoilers, so here ya go:

He recently appeared as FBI Special Agent Buchholz in EPIX original comedy series, “Get Shorty,” chasing down Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd.

Sometimes we want to forget who we are and just disappear. But, imagine if this really happened to you due to a traumatic event.

This is the storyline behind a recent episode of NBC’s long-running drama series “Law & Order: SVU.” In ‘Exile,’ actress Aimée Spring Fortier stepped in the shoes of an assault victim suffering from such a disorder – and she’s completely unaware of it when she wakes up in a hospital with no memory.

The new original Starz drama “Vida” has been gaining momentum since launching on May 6th. Created by Tanya Saracho, the buzz for the series mainly emphasizes its Latinx focused, female-driven, queer storyline. But, it would be a shame if the solid supporting cast were to go unmentioned as part of the reason for its success.

One such member of this stellar group is actress Elena Campbell-Martinez, who shines as the neighborhood’s motherly figure and spiritual healer ‘Doña Lupe’.

Think Elena looks familiar? Well, she should considering this talented actress appeared in Clint Eastwood’s...
