I saw Destiny at Howling Libraries make a list of 10 TV shows she wanted to watch in 2019 last December, and thought it was a great idea. There are so many TV shows on my to-watch list, whether that’s on Netflix or the tracker I use. Sometimes it gets overwhelming, and I can’t decide on a show to watch when I finally have some time. In order to get rid of that overwhelming feeling, I thought it a good idea to create a list of 10 shows I want to prioritize this year. Let’s take a look at my to-watch list for 2019!
iZombie season 3 & 4
I have recently rediscovered my love for iZombie through a rewatch of season 1 and the majority of season 2. I was obsessed with this TV show sometime in the past few years, but never actually made it far into season 3. Since this is the only zombie-related show I’ve ever truly loved, I want to actually catch up with it. So this year, I’m planning on watching the third and fourth season.
Stranger Things season 3
They just announced that Stranger Things will be returning for its third season on July 4th, and you best believe I will be there to watch it as soon as possible. Probably binge-watch it, to be honest.
La Casa de Papel season 1
I have heard nothing but amazing things about this TV show, and it’s one I want to watch in the upcoming months. It’s a Spanish show about a group of robbers who carry out the most perfect robbery in the history of Spain and steal 2.4 billion euros. I adore heist stories, and I’ve been wanting to watch some more foreign shows so this one is right up my alley.
Dark season 1
I started watching Dark a while ago, but never actually made it past the first episode. It’s a German show about a boy who goes missing, and whose disappearance may be linked to one of another boy decades ago. Something about it all happening again? I have no idea what that means, but I’m eager to find out.
The Good Place season 1, 2 & 3
I did watch the first season of The Good Place when it first came out, but I think I should rewatch it before continuing on. I do remember the big reveal at the end as well as some minor details, but I feel like that’s not enough to truly enjoy the second season. So many people are obsessed with this show, and I need to be added to that list. Besides, I love Kristen Bell.
You season 1
I guess I have a head start here because I’ve already completed 5 out of the 10 episodes so far. I watched them at the end of December, when the show released on Netflix. This is one I do want to finish soon, especially because I’m already halfway through the season.
This is one of the most well-loved and famous K-dramas yet, and I haven’t watched it. I think I’ve been intimidated by it, simply because so many people adore the show. I want to get over that irrational fear in 2019, and finally watch this.
(Hotel) Beau Séjour
I find it embarrassing how many Belgian shows I haven’t watched yet, considering I am Belgian. This seems to be one of the more famous ones, which Stephen King really seemed to like. From what I can tell, it’s about a girl who wakes up to discover she’s been murdered, and her struggle to find her killer.
De Ridder season 1 (maybe 2 & 3)
Another Belgian TV show I have never watched. All I know about this one is that it follows Helena De Ridder who is a pubic prosecutor in Gent. I know, so many details, right? I’ll give it a go and watch season 1! If I like it, I want to watch the second and third seasons too.
What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?
Another K-drama on the list! If you’re curious why I don’t include seasons here, it’s because Asian dramas rarely have more than 1 season. This one doesn’t appear to be an exception. It’s the story of Kim Mi-so who decides to resign as the secretary to Vice Chairman Lee Young-Joon after working for him for 9 years.
100 Days My Prince
The last show (and last K-drama) on this list. I don’t tend to watch Korean period dramas, and I’m not entirely sure why. I’ve mostly stuck to ones that play out in a modern setting. The reason this is on my list? EXO’s Kyungsoo.
I want to prioritize these 11 shows and watch them throughout 2019. If I happen to have more time and watch others as well, great! If not, these are the ones I need to focus on. Have you watched any of these? Do you have some shows you really need and want to watch?
