I’ve watched so many TV Shows over the years, I’m not even sure I can name them all without having to think about them for a at least few minutes. The ones that I fell in love with tough, I know those by heart. And even tough there are people who would probably say that watching TV Shows, especially that much, is plainly a waste of time, I don’t quite agree. I mean, yes. If I do the math and calculate the hours I’ve spent on TV Shows, the numbers would be crazy high for sure. And yes, I could’ve instead learn Mandarin, build a boat, achieve a rocket body shape with everyday workout, find Amelia Earhart and Atlantis. But, hey someone has to watch TV Shows.
While we can all agree on Movies & TV Shows’ main purpose being pure entertainment, with the right programs, it’s learnin’ too, is what it is. And to prove that, Angela and I decided to share with you some of our favorite TV Shows and all the awesome things we’ve learned from them. Check out our selection of TV Shows and stuff our favorite characters taught us below.
Doctor Who is not one of the most epic shows. Doctor Who IS the most epic show ever. Seriously, I’m thinking of leaving the next 5 spots from this list empty, and then continue with the rest of the shows. I mean not that the rest of the shows I’m about to write about are not good. No, they’re awesome. It’s just, Doctor Who is so so good I wanna cry. If some of you somehow haven’t watched it yet, what you doin’ man? Allonsy, the Doctor’s waiting.
So, what has Doctor Who taught us?
Earth is an awesome place to live.
This BBC Show constantly reminds us that our planet is just great, and that we should do a better job in taking good care of it. ‘Cause there are lots of aliens out there who would do anything to get their hands on our sexy Earth. And, also, since the Doctor himself is protecting Earth, than it must be one hell of an awesome planet.
Each and every one of us matters.
It was almost always the very ordinary Earthling that did tons of amazing stuff and helped saving the planet. The Doctor was just always at the right time & space to encourage each human to believe in themselves and in their capability of doing extraordinary things, when extraordinary things are extremely needed. And, I know, it’s a TV Show, not real life, but it is so inspiring.
“900 years of time and space, and I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important. – the Doctor.
Statues are mean. Don’t blink.
Now that I think about it, statues have always looked creepy. I don’t like ’em.
Bow ties are cool.
No explanation needed.
Time is a Big Ball of Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey Stuff.
Everything’s just so much more clear now.
David Tennant is hot.
Ah, the tenth.
The 6 friends we all wish to hang out with in Monica’s apartment, am I right? Or, at Central Perk. The best sit-com ever made, and my personal favorite. So, what did we learn from those guys?
Sarcasm is the answer.
I think that Chandler brought me even closer with sarcasm and its powers than I was before. Your friend asks a stupid question – sarcasm. They do some stupid thing – sarcasm again. You’re life sure could’ve been better, so sarcasm your as* out of depressing thoughts. Someone asks for advice, you interest them in a sarcastic comment. See, works with everything.
“Nice camouflage man. I almost didn’t see you there.” – Chandler
Friends should be able to say to each other what they really mean and how they really feel. Actually, not just friends. Any kind of relationship demands honesty in order to survive. People still lack the ability to read other people’s minds so just express how you feel. Like Phoebe when they asked her if she wanted to help Ross with moving to a new apartment.
“I wish I could, but I don’t want to” – Phoebe
What to do when Jelly Fish stings you.
Yes, pee on it. And if you have at least one friend who’d pee on you if he had to, then you are one lucky person.
Hard Work and Devotion pays out.
For example, Monica has been dreaming about being a chef ever since she got her first Easy Bake Oven. She had to suck it up while wearing fake boobs, a blonde wig, a little bit of dancing on YMCA, and roller blades even, to get to her fancy-restaurant-chef dream job. Rachel was helping an old lady to put on a thong that she didn’t even buy, before she landed the job at Ralph Lauren. Chandler wasn’t happy with the WENUS, but he got through that. Mario had VD, but then he became Dr. Drake Ramoray. See? Just be patient, while working hard and being determined, and you’ll get there.
It’s Okay to Feel a Little bit Lost while Figuring out who you are and what you want.
As long as you have your Magic Beans, you’ll be just fine.
Being Weird and Eccentric is Okay, too.
We are all quirky and strange in our own ways. We should just do our best in trying to accept each other as we come, and stop caring that much about how other people perceive us. For example, the next time I’m about to run, I’ll run all crazy like Phoebe did, ’cause who cares?
I still find myself startled when I think about how freakin’ popular Game of Thrones is. I mean, I totally agree that it is one hell of an awesome TV Series, with such an entangled, crazy, captivating can’t-go-to-pee-til-the-end plot. And while Jon Snow knows nothing, there are few things that we’ve come to know.
Our Physical Appearance doesn’t Define Us.
It doesn’t matter if we’re rich or poor, white or black, big or small, tall or high, we can still make a difference. And, apparently the way to do so is drink and know stuff.
Be patient. You’ll get there.
Just look at our beloved Daenerys. When the show started she only had a dumb brother, and then all of a sudden BAM! Dragons, empires, you named it. I mean, yes, I know, none of us has scary dragons, but who knows? Maybe our dragons come in different shapes and forms. My dog can be kinda scary some times.
Don’t mate with your siblings.
Or else, Joffrey.
Bravery can be often found where you least expect it.
Let’s all just take a moment and celebrate the Sam-s of this and every other World. I mean, the fatty killed a white walker for crying out loud.
Of course, when running from a psycho with arrows, zig-zag it, dude.
I’m sorry Rickon.
I totally love New Girl and the unique humor of the show. Each character has their own peculiar qualities and I cannot wait for the new season to air on 20 September. And have you heard? They’re doing a crossover episode later this season with another awesome awesome show – Brooklyn Nine, Yay! Anyhow, New Girl’s lessons below.
Life gets hard for a good reason.
New girl starts with Jess (Zooey Deschanel) being cheated on by her boyfriend and having to look for a new apartment which is how she end up living with the guys. We’ve all been there. We’ve all found ourselves staring at this huge life-altering event that usually revolves around either a bad break-up or losing our jobs. The good old “What the hell am I going to do now” question. But not that rarely, that precise moment was what we need so that we can answer that question, and answer it correctly.
Sometimes you just have to stand up for yourself.
The TV Show has constantly been reminding us that we don’t have to put up with all kinds of crap. That we should let go of our fear of confrontation and speak up. Like for example, in the Apartment episode, Jess finally ends the torture that her boss, the new school principle, has been putting her trough and quits her job. We all deserve some of the good stuff, damn it.
Being a Douchebag can Cost You (a lot).
The Douchebag Jar is all I’m saying.
Hang in there, Nick Miller-s.
Everyone sees Nick as a childish and irresponsible person, a man with no ambitions even. He always has these crazy “invention” ideas while working as a bartender. And who would’ve thought that a person like Miller will end up owning his bar, being a boss-man and actually doing his job quite well? So, Nick Miller-s of this world, you are doing fine. Don’t beat yourselves up, you’ll make it.
Oh my God! How awesome is this show? I can’t seem to find the right words to describe it without overdoing it which is not a good thing no matter how awesome the show is. And I also can’t seem to single out one favorite character. I mean, every single actor is so damn perfect for their role, it’s impossible. So if you want a good humor, just the right amount of detective action, lots of Die Hard references and John McClane moments, this the show.
Challenges and Bets are often quite the motivation.
Let’s look at Amy and Peralta. They are constantly betting on who has more busts which keeps them driven to achieve even better results. Whatever gets things done, man.
Even the biggest ones of us are frightened at times.
Terry Jeffords (portrayed by Terry Crews) is a huge huge man. Walking Muscles. And even he got all jumpy, squeaky and scared when Jake’s tarantula got lost in the precinct. On his head. Spiders are scary!
Every now and then, you go full Gina.
I think that after all, I do have a favorite Brooklyn Nine Nine character. He, what do you know? It’s Gina (Chelsea Peretti). The girl is just awesome and hilarious. She’s honest, doesn’t give a damn of what others think of her and always thinks highly of herself. Even though she’s the only secretary among all the great detectives and their awesome detective stories, she doesn’t feel like any less of them. We all have our values and the first person that has to see those values and acknowledge them as real is ourselves. Once we do that, others will too. Eventually.
I feel like I am the Paris of the People. – Gina
When stressed or pissed, go to your happy place.
Or if you’re someone like Rosa, dark places are also fine. As long as you find your peace and don’t actually kill someone.
“I’m in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Inside it’s just me and that stupid, slimy defense attorney. Then I reach down his throat…” – Rosa.
