What do you mean I’m only choosing this topic because I love television and because I couldn’t think of anything else to do? That’s crazy. So crazy. And one hundred percent correct. Besides, here’s the thing, while I am fond of a bit of darkness and debauchery, there’s something to be said for sweet TV. So here’s a list of my five of my favorite shows.
What could be sweeter than a show about friendship and always being there for one another? Especially when it’s ridiculously funny? Nothing I tell you! Friends is my ultimate sweet TV show.
Parks and Recreation
I avoided this show for the longest time because there was no way it could possibly be any good. Um, SO wrong! And what I love most is how crazy sweet it is. Which proves that love and kindness always win out. Unless you’re a librarian of course (which, fun fact – I actually am!)
RuPaul’s Drag Race
Okay, this might not be an obvious sweet show BUT what I love the most about it is that behind the eyelashes, puns and tucking, RuPaul preaches love and understanding, which gives it a sweet quality that I just adore.
This is literally a sweet show. I mean the amount of sugary snacks that Lorelai and Rory consume is mind blowing! And while there’s all kinds of drama throughout the seasons the sweetness runs through it like a glittery, smile-inducing rainbow.
The Brady Bunch
Yup, I really am that old! This was my favorite show growing up because there was no tantrum or disaster that couldn’t be solved by a family pow-wow or a confessional in Mr. Brady’s study.
So what are your favorites?
