Years and years ago I compiled an alphabet of my favourite movies, actors and directors. Every letter corresponded with something or someone I liked, loved, admired. Today I’m sitting down to do the same thing… but with television shows. This is an undertaking of the year for me and I’m quite excited.

One of the reasons I wanted to do this is because TV shows have risen to great heights. They are complex, well made, demand a lot of our attention and simply put, television has has surpassed movies in certain extent. Heck, even Oscar winning actors are marching into TV shows and blurring the line between television and the. With no further ado, let’s get into this.

Before I begin, let me clarify a few things. Since I already mentioned my favourite actors and actresses in My Movie Alphabet, I’m setting that aside. This alphabet is focusing on TV shows and TV show characters! It was super hard to narrow down characters, because there are so many but life is hard, so I’m gonna suck it up. I also realised that I still need to watch a lot of good shows. Another realisation is the fact that I have a very bad memory for character names, so I’m sure I forgot some.

By the way, this is an official blogathon announcement so feel free to join in! I’d love to see your picks from television and I would gladly have all of you suffer like I’m about to suffer. Because narrowing some of these letters was actually torture. Here is a TV guide with the rules in a neat little box in case you want to join in! Deadline for submissions is September 30th.

PS: I went a bit nuts on the design, but just to clarify I don’t expect this level of craziness from anyone else. After being so lazy this summer with blogging I personally just wanted to make up for it with something a bit over the top. 

That’s all folks! I had a lot of fun making this list but also lost a fair amount of nerves as well. Definitely missed a few and couldn’t mention everything but hey, that’s part of the fun.



  • Great blogathon idea! It might take me a while to put together, but I might have to join in. I had no idea you were a 3rd Rock from the Sun fan. That’s one of my all-time FAVORITES.

    • I saw it years and years ago but I rewatched most of first season again this month and it holds up so well! Such a fun show. Also baby Joseph Gordon-Levitt is adorable. 😀

  • This looks GORGEOUS! I don’t have enough time or functioning mind to pull this off but I’ll be sure to check out all the entries people make!

    • Thank you so much! I totally get it and no worries about participating! I had meant to time this months earlier but as you can see, I’m not functioning either. 😀

  • This looks amazing! I would totally do this….if I would be an avid TV watcher, which I’m not, sorry 🙁
    Cool you included Mindhunter, Game of thrones, Veronica Mars…..great TV shows !
    Can’t wait to see the rest of the entries!
