Few times, last year, I recommended TV shows as part of my Thursday Movie Picks because I thought why not and now Wandering Through the Shelves has decided to add it as part of the series! So every last Thursday of the month, everyone participating will recommend television shows according to the theme. It is a wonderful addition, and honestly, I’m a little scared because I have definitely seen a lot of shows! A lot! And considering science fiction is one of my favourite genres, just so you know, this list feels very important to me. But, I also wanted to recommend shows that not everyone has heard of, so…
Starting off with something that isn’t necessarily a science fiction show, which is exactly what I love about it! It tells a story about Kyle, who isn’t your typical teenager – he is super smart and yet lacks any understanding of social skills. Due to his past, he is taken in by a family with two other teenagers, and the show focuses a lot on the family dynamics and how Kyle is adjusting to his new life. Of course there is the sci-fi element, which is the fact that Kyle doesn’t have a belly button – hint-hint. Favourite thing about the show though? Jean-Luc Bilodeau, who went on to Baby Daddy, and has such great comedic timing that I just .. I’m thinking about rewatching this show now that I’ve recommended it because it’s mostly a feel good comedy, with some sci-fi drama elements! What’s not to love?!
Now, granted, I’ve stopped watching this show passed its second season but man, did I love the first two seasons of this show! Those two seasons were so strong, first one close to brilliant, and I’m ashamed that I haven’t continued watching it. They just.. they did something with the storyline that I wasn’t a fan of but I understood it.. yet, haven’t been able to get back on track with it. Still, like I said, the first two seasons are really strong, they’re strong enough for me to rewatch them because I enjoyed them both. Plus, there’s some eye candy and not gonna lie, a little eye candy is always worth it.
This two season wonder was one of my favourites way back when, and when I thought about what show to feature, I was eager to go with a Joss Whedon series – because I think that Whedon has made some really great ones! Plus, Eliza Dushku is also one of those TV actresses that you won’t forget – she is memorable and badass! Granted, Whedon has given her some really great characters in his shows, and Dollhouse is not the only one where Dushku shines. In addition, I really like the concept of reprogramming a person’s brain, plus, I really like the programmer dude in this one – he was memorable and funny!
