I'm really hard to please when it comes to TV/Films, only show I've ever really obsessed over was Gossip Girl, anyone know any similar programs?

I can't stand Breaking Bad, Scandal, GOT, walking dead, 90210, Suits,

Shows I love: The Good Wife, Attack on Titans, Dance Moms, Twinkles.

Pretty Little Liars?

It's all on Netflix I think.

The OC, Veronica mars, the updated 90210, The carrie diaries.
None of them are quite as slick and bitchy as gossip girl though.

I haven't watched either but Pretty Little Liars has a higher IMBD rating than Gossip Girl and it's usually a spot on reflection.

I like a lot of the same as you, and I really enjoy vampire diaries and pretty little liars both avaliable on Netflix

Gilmore Girls
One Tree Hill

Agree with Pretty Little Liars.

Also Awkward, which is a comedy.

Grays Anatomy

Revenge is brilliant. Really addictive.

HyunaRiddle Tue 02-Aug-16 19:45:46

I've sadly seen all of those, didn't like Pretty Little Liars, Gilmore Girls or Revenge, gave up on awkward after season 2 and Greys Anatomy after season 8, Vampire Diaries after season 6, couldn't get through the first season of the OC.

Enjoyed Veronica Mars

Loved One Tree Hill, by far one of my favourite ever programs.

I think 2007-2013 were great tv years for me, now it's all super heroes, zombies and comedy shows and it looks like will be going into horror/thriller stuff next, all genres that I hate

I came on to say Pretty Little Liars is good (I also enjoyed Gossip Girl) as is Revenge.

DrHarleenFrancesQuinzel Tue 02-Aug-16 19:47:22

OK crossed posts.

Oooh another one I like is Heartland

Have you tried Switched at birth or The fosters. They are both too sweet at times but when the stories concentrate on the kids they are good.

I have just started watching Jane the virgin. It's not the same as gossip girl but it's promising.

I loved the new 90210 . Amazing.

I miss gossip girl.

I didn't like Carrie dairies.

Pretty little liars is good. The only problem is that it goes round in circles and it becomes annoying. I can't seem to finish series five.

You should try scream queens. I didn't like it but lots of people did and still do.

The oc gets better. I had forgotten how I used to love it.

Heartland is good. I don't remember finishing it.

If there is no more you could go for glee.

I love shows like these too I hope something I haven't watched pop up.

Ugly Betty, I loved it

I have not watched Nashville but people love it.

I have my eye on revenge

There was a new Melrose place. Thinking about this I might try it too.

Mistresses. There is a British version which is excellent then the Americans picked it up with an all American cast.

I thought "the royals" was kind of similar to gossip girl, not as good but gossip girl was amazing!

DrHarleenFrancesQuinzel Wed 03-Aug-16 13:50:58

tiffy
Heartland is still showing so you wouldnt have finished it. So many seasons are on Netflix, but the later seasons Im having to get off what was Lovefilm. Then season 9 I think it is has just finished showing in Canada/America so is not out yet here. I love it, perfect escapism even though it can be a bit sickly sweet in places.

tiffyfanny Thu 04-Aug-16 10:31:39

Drharleen thanks.

Op, you could try "unbreakable" on Netflix. I watched season one. I haven't got to two yet.

It's still not gossip girl though or anywhere near as good.

Dirty Sexy Money

I loved gossip girl too, also first 6 seasons of vampire diaries.

You need Nashville.

MiddleClassProblem Thu 04-Aug-16 15:22:45

Nashville or brothers and sisters (but characters are adults not teens)

I binged on switched at birth when I had DD. But it's not amazing. I liked learning a bit of asl without trying but not the same as bsl...

panegyricS1 Wed 10-Aug-16 07:54:45

Brothers and Sisters is superb. I enjoyed Jane the Virgin too.

You sound a bit like me, OP. Things people expect me to like (Gilmour Girls, Ugly Betty) I couldn't get into, for no obvious reason. Things either click with me or they don't.

I'm going to start Jessica Jones soon. The actor who played Lamond Bishop (my favourite character) in the Good Wife is in it, apparently. I'll either give up after one ep, or get obsessed lol

NewBallsPlease00 Wed 17-Aug-16 01:49:41

Dirty sexy money id totally forgotten about that--and the ridiculous story lines!--

Jaimx86 Wed 17-Aug-16 21:40:13

Ive really enjoyed Bitch in Apartment 24

Jaimx86 Wed 17-Aug-16 21:40:36
