For today’s post, I have chosen to do a countdown of my favorite shows to watch when I need some relaxation! Comfort shows are old and reliable favorites that will never cease to bring comfort to a wounded soul! I have long been a fan of re-watching shows, and these are my all-time favorites to provide comfort. For the record, the top three of this list happen to be my absolute favorite television shows of all time! On a side note, I have excluded some other favorites like The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Legacies. Those are great shows, but not as comforting as these.
Number 5: Merlin (2009)
~I love this adaptation of the Arthurian legends! To be honest, I mostly watch this for Katie McGrath’s performance as Morgana. She is excellent as the half-sister of King Arthur, even if it takes the common theme of her being evil. Morgana becomes evil for an understandable reason, and this makes her relatable. I just love Morgana as the badass faery Goddess, the last priestess figure! It both relates to her traditional interpretation, and adds interesting layers! I am so glad that I began watching this show, as it has now become one of my ultimate comfort shows.
Number 4: Once Upon a Time (2011)
~This one takes a unique interpretation of fairytales. It merges the concepts of many famous tales, and makes them fresh! It is a show I have loved for years now, and it is a magical journey to comfort!
Number 3: Gilmore Girls (2000)
~I watched this one growing up, and always adored the witty repartee. It is one that I still can watch on repeat to feel comfort. I adore Lorelai, and always said that when I become a mother, she will be my idol of maternal love!
Number 2: Bewitched (1964)
~I absolutely love this witchy supernatural comedy that began in the 1960s! It is such a fun show, and I am so happy to watch it whenever I feel down. I even took my love for the show when I chose to have the theme as my ringtone, and the “witch twitch” as my text tone! And yes, I did practice the nose twitch, and I am quite proud that I mastered it as a little girl!
Number 1:Charmed (1998)
~The original Charmed has been my favorite show since it premiered when I was just a little girl! I followed the show for its entire eight-year run, and I still re-watch it regularly. I felt an immediate connection to the badass witches, and I love the fun of this classic 90s show. It is a fun and magical ride that never ceases to be enjoyable, whether on the first watch or the hundredth!
