I've been watching tv shows since I'm 10 years old. Probably even younger because there's a lot of portuguese tv shows that I'm not going to mention here that I've watched religiously. Shows like "Uma Aventura", "Morangos Com Açucar" and "Rebelde Way" when I was a kid a lived for that shit! Even though I really loved "Uma Aventura" I was never obcessed with it. The show was basicly a group of 5 young people that didn't know when to stop and leave the crime scene. They were better than the police acctually. They put themselfs in danger like they were imortal. If you can please search for that show on youtube or someting. It was the shit in Portugal in the early 2000's. Maybe I'll do something with tv shows from my childhood next time.

  • My Life As Liz (2010 - 2011)

My Life as Liz is a mockumentary-style American comedy television series that centers on the life of Liz Lee, a misfit high-school senior living in a small town in Texas.
_I used to love my life as Liz, in fact I related a lot with her. When the show aired I was in my last year of what the americans call middle-school, I think (things are different in Portugal so I really don't know). I liked it there, I had friends and all of that but I was a misfit all of my friends were and we knew it. I had red hair, my favorite type of music was indie rock and alternative rock when everyone else listened to hip hop or pop songs. I liked everything everyone else didn't like.

I know the show is supposed to show us how are things in Burleson, Texas. But in my opinion they are pretty identical anywhere. I'm sure I wasn't the only one identifying with the characters._

  • Degrassi (2001 - present day)

Degrassi: The Next Generation (later renamed Degrassi for seasons ten through fourteen) is a Canadian teen drama television series set in the Degrassi universe, which was created by Linda Schuyler and Kit Hood in 1979. It is the fourth series in the Degrassi franchise, following The Kids of Degrassi Street, Degrassi Junior High, and Degrassi High. Like its predecessors, the series follows an ensemble cast of students at the fictional Degrassi Community School who face various challenges often seen as taboo.
This is a big one for me because I've watched all of the degrassi that there was to watch. I guess I'm a fan? I've been watching this since forever, wich was really hard because MTV Portugal only started broadcasting the show when it was on season 5 or 6 (I can't really remember) so I had to dig deep in the internet to find all of the seasons including the ones from the 70's and 80's. Now you can watch it all on youtube. Lucky you!
Eclare will forever be my relationship goals!
And the death of J.T will haunt me forever.

  • 90201 (2008 - 2013)

90210 is an American teen drama television series. . It is the fourth series in the Beverly Hills, 90210 franchise created by Darren Star.
Like its predecessor, the show follows the lives of several wealthy students attending West Beverly Hills High School in the upscale and star-studded community of Beverly Hills, California. The show later focuses on the same group of friends when they graduate and begin their lives in the adult world. Some attend college at California University, while others begin exploring avenues beyond post-secondary education.

Five seasons of pure drama! If you like that type of show this one is perfect. I remember being obsessed with this I wouldn't dare to miss an episode and got really upset when I found out the show was coming to an end at season five.
Since it ended I've wanted to watch the original one, but I'm kinda lazy so I'm hoping to stumble on it someday by accident like it happened with the recent one.

  • Gilmore Girls (2000 - 2007)

The show's main focus is on the relationship between single mother Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter Rory, who live in Stars Hollow, Connecticut, a small fictional town filled with colorful characters. The series explores issues of family, romance, education, friendship, disappointment, and ambition, along with generational divides and social class, the latter themes manifesting through Lorelai's difficult relationship with her high society parents, Emily and Richard, and Rory's experiences at elite schools.
I remember not being fully convinced with this one at the beginning but three episodes later I was completely obsessed with it. I wanted to move to Stars Hollow so I could be friends with Lorelai! I watched all the seven seasons in one month so you can imagine how it was for me. Fun! Fun! Fun!

  • Awkward (2011 - 2016)

Awkward is an American teen comedy series created by Lauren Iungerich for MTV. The show's central character is Jenna Hamilton, a Palos Verdes, California, teenager who struggles with her identity, especially after an accident is misconstrued as a suicide attempt.
I stumbled on an episode of the show by accident and I became obsessed with it really fast. This one was not like "My Life As Liz" I was nothing like Jenna in high school. Mainly I just wanted to blend in and not being noticed unlike Jenna that was always on the spotlight not for the best reasons.

  • Parenthood (2010 - 2015)

The show tells of the Braverman clan, which comprises an older couple, their four children, and their families. One of the grandchildren depicted has Asperger syndrome (referred to as "Asperger's" in the series), which has gained attention throughout the press.
There's no words to describe what I felt on the day I found out the show was coming to an end. I followed the lives of the Braverman so closely that I was actually sad and felt like crying a little.
This will always be my number one show when it comes to recomendations. It was just good. It made you feel as if you were part of the Braverman family.

She begins to reconnect with her best friend, Chloe, who is unaware of Rae's mental health and body image problems, believing she was in France for the past four months. Rae attempts to keep this information from her while also trying to impress Chloe's friends Finn, Archie, Izzy and Chop.
I've watched this show so many times that I can almost tell you what they're gonna say in advance. It's just one of those shows that makes you want more and more, like you need to know what happens to Rae because you're worried with her.
I loved it so much.
