Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back to The Broke and the Bookish so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.
This week's topic is TV Theme- anything to do with TV. Choices, choices... I decided to split this up a bit. So I'm doing 5 shows that I like, and then 5 books that I think would make a good show or miniseries.
Top 5 Shows
Top 5 Books That Would Make A Good Show
A woman wakes up on a subway track with no memory of who she is, and finds she's part of a game. Yeah this has probably been done but I'd watch it.
I don't really know how this would work, but it's another one I'd watch. A game played by high school kids involving more and more dangerous stunts- it might work better as a miniseries than a regular series.
Kind of Jules Verne meets The Lost World, it's got airships and an underground sea. A fun read. I'd love to see Netflix take a shot.
This could be fun if done right, you'd have to distinguish it from Pretty Little Liars but really the story is quite different, and I'd love to see it.
This seems like it could be fun if done well.
There is such a bewildering number of shows to watch on TV these days that it's difficult to choose. I need to check out some of these and see if they're something I would like to watch, that is, if I ever lift my self-imposed TV moratorium. (I haven't watched TV for over 3 months now and don't really miss it, but you never know: I might go back to it)ReplyDelete
Nice list! The School for Unusual Girls would make an interesting TV show. I wonder if it would be a better fit for PBS or the CW :)ReplyDelete
You are not going to believe this, but I haven't watched ANY of these..... BUT!!! I am forwarding this one to my husband right now. He is always looking for new TV Series. Great list Greg! Thanks for sharing. I'll go draft mine now.ReplyDelete
My husband and I are always trying to find good shows to watch together and I've only watched the 100 from your list! So I may be using your list to figure out some new TV time for us!ReplyDelete
I used to watch Orphan Black and fell off at season 3. I have to catch up someday. I think Panic would be cool as a TV show!ReplyDelete
Ah, yes, The 100. I enjoyed that one as well. It kinda reminds me of the Across the Universe series! I haven't watched any of those other shows, and those books are all new to me and sound so good that I'm adding them to my TBR!ReplyDelete
I started watching Black Sails but I could get into it.ReplyDelete
I will check out the books you listed.
LOVE Orphan Black so hard. I can't wait for the new season to start up, I'm having withdrawals LOL! I still need to watch the rest of these shows though^^ but they're all on my watchlist :)ReplyDelete
I really want to read Emilie and the Hollow World and School for Unusual Girls especially but Panic is on my tbr shelf as well! Great selection Greg!!
I've wanted to watch Orphan Black, I've heard great things! I need to get that on my list. I like how you split the list up this week.ReplyDelete
Great list! Have a lovely week! Our TTTReplyDelete
As much as I love Top Ten Tuesday, I actually passed on this week's topic because I don't watch TV. That made it a little tricky. :) But I do like the sound of A School for Unusual Girls. Love the historical aspect!ReplyDelete
Orphan Black is one of our favorites. So many of these books sound like perfect shows. I love reading a book and seeing it in your mind on the screen. It's such a cool experience!ReplyDelete
Ahhh you've reminded me that I need to catch up on The 100 - I'm super behind now (I've only watched the first season). It's one of those shows I get super sucked into but then it starts super stressing me out so I have to put it down for a while haha! And I REALLY want to see Orphan Black! My mom has prime now so I think it's in Amazon which means I can watch it which is exciting!ReplyDelete
The 100 makes me nervous I think too because I get into the characters. It's a quick hour when that show is on! S2 was great so you have that to look forward to. :) And Orphan Black is a riot at times.Delete
Oh I love The 100! Or any of the CW shows really, they have some of my favorite shows and more new stuff to watch every year. This year there's a new show, Frequency, coming out, so excited for it!ReplyDelete
The 100 is the best! And I am looking forward to the new stuff. Love Flash also!Delete
I have read/watched none of these - except for the first season of Orphan Black which I loved but somehow never watched more of. I really want to read A School for Unusual Girls and I think a TV show based off of it would be awesome. Great list!ReplyDelete
I do too, would love to see a show like that. Orphan Black occasionally gets a little out there but usually I like it, I binged it and S3 was iffy but the rest is pretty good I think.Delete
Orphan Black! I still need to catch up with it. Ha ha. A School For Unusual Girls keeps popping up on your blog. I guess I will have to read it. :)ReplyDelete
Yes it does! Ha ha you can tell the ones I like, right? Orphan Black is good, watch it so we can talk about it ha ha.Delete
I left The 100 off my list this week and I have no justifiable reason why. I've had Get Even on my TBR for ages. I really need to read it soon.ReplyDelete
Get Even I really liked, the sequel left me less excited though. It would make a fun show!Delete
Nice idea! I adore The 100 though I'm at a nervous place with it. I've only watched the first two seasons and have heard things about season 3 that have made me VERY nervous. Hence why it didn't make my list of things I'm looking forward to coming on Netflix this Fall. However I am totally going to watch it like crazy!ReplyDelete
I love The 100! S3 was not my favorite but I got through it and it has its moments. I loved S2! And the characters keep me coming back...Delete
I need to watch Orphan Black and 12 Monkeys!ReplyDelete
Check out my TTT.
12 Monkeys is a phenomenal show I think. I haven't seen the movie and it didn't really appeal to me but I tried the show and love it.Delete
I haven't watched any of your favorites!! Orphan Black has actually been on my list for awhile now, but I still haven't gotten around to watching it. Great list :DReplyDelete
Tracy @ Cornerfolds
I hope you get to watch it, it's quite a trip at times!Delete
Every one keeps telling me I need to watch Orphan Black. Think I might finally have to give in and give it a go. Great list!ReplyDelete
Orphan Black is quite good, S3 gets a little different but otherwise a solid show.Delete
I really need to get around to watching The 100! I kept forgetting about that one every time I go looking for something to binge on.ReplyDelete
I'd love to see what you think of The 100. It's so fun to geek over! lol although you have to get past the first few episodes since it seems all CW-y and angsty but it quickly becomes a solid show.Delete
Great list! I pretty much watch watch each of those shows. The only book I've read, though, is Panic, but I don't remember it.ReplyDelete
Do you? Cool! I'm glad someone else is watching them... :)Delete
I think they're making Panic into a movie. I haven't read it, but I read that news somewhere. Ahh, can't wait for the final season of Orphan Black. At least I'll still have Killjoys that's by the same people.ReplyDelete
Are they? Awesome. I would totally watch that. And yeah I'm looking forward to OB too, although I'll miss it when it's gone...Delete
For sure Get Even could be the new PLL since that is going off after this season. Also, I ned to read Panic. I LOVE Lauren Oliver!!ReplyDelete
I liked Panic. i know it got mixed reviews but I liked it- and Get even would be an awesome PLL replacement!Delete
I started Continuum and really liked it, though I've forgotten about it amid all the other (too many) shows I was watching. At some point I'll revisit it and finish the series out. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, as always, for the Finding Wonderland visit, Greg.
Awesome list! Here’s my TTT!ReplyDelete
I love Orphan Black. I've only seen the first two episodes, and I know I'll need to go back and watch them again before moving on in the series. It's been too long (such a fun show).ReplyDelete
I am going to have to check out the other shows you love, because obviously you have great taste in The 100 😉 I have Orphan Black on my "to watch" list, but I am going to Google the others too! I haven't read any of the books except Panic, but I think that could be done well- especially because they could like, spin it off pretty easily from the original story. Though, did you ever see the pilot for Delirium? SO bad, like, the worst thing in the history of TV, I am so glad it didn't continue.ReplyDelete
BLACK SAILS is still on my watch-list :) Looks like Game of Thrones with Pirates :DReplyDelete
Great picks! I really need to catch up on Orphan Black. That's such a good show.ReplyDelete
We're still only at season 1 of Black Sails, haha. I hope the second season is a bit better. And with the 100 we're still only at s1 as well. We suck at keeping up with series.ReplyDelete
I've been interested in Orphan Black. :)
I really need to see Orphan Black, it is raved about everywhere, I also need to really switch Netflix back on.ReplyDelete
