My inspiration for today's post is the lovely Lauren from TastesLikeLove who has been posting her top 5 "currents" as a monthly feature on her blog. This week she posted about the top 5 TV shows that she is currently watching, and being the TV show addict that I am I thought I would do the same. Enjoy! :)

Rules of Engagement / I stumbled upon this awesome show by accident a few months ago when I was flipping through the tv guide out of boredom. I saw the title and remembered my partner once telling me not to bother watching it as he knew I wouldn't like it. Well, since I don't take kindly to being told what to do, I of course decided to give the show a go and I instantly fell in love. If you like shows like Friends and How I Met Your Mother (seasons 1-4 of HIMYM anyway) then Rules of Engagement is the show for you. I have since finished watching all 7 seasons, and in all honesty, there wasn't a single episode that I regretted watching. The very final episode of season 7 was a great way to end a TV series, and each season leading up to it appeared to be planned/timed in perfect accordance. My favourite characters were Jeff and Audrey, although every single character grew on me over time (yes, even Russell and Liz!).
Modern Family / Another TV series that has yet to bore me is Modern Family. I like how each episode has a funny new storyline and doesn't rely solely on reaching a final conclusion (can you tell I'm hating HIMYM at the moment?). Phil and Gloria are my two favourite characters, but really, they're all pretty awesome. If you haven't seen this show already, you definitely need to! I'm half way through season 5 at the moment and loving every minute of it. :)
Breaking Bad / Yes, that's right, I'm one of the probably thousands of people who only started watching Breaking Bad after the show had finished. To be fair though, I actually hadn't even heard about this show until fans started getting all nostalgic after the final episode had aired. Anyway, how I found out about this TV show aside, the storyline is fantastic! I was hooked by the end of the first episode. Even though there are times when the show gets a little boring/slow, there is always some upcoming episode or scene that will be guaranteed to blow your mind. I literally just finished watching the end of season 3 and I am seriously having to exercise some major self control not to dive straight into season 4. Watch it.. just watch it, trust me!
Castle / Another long running favourite TV show of mine would have to be Castle. The main character wears a bullet proof vest that says 'writer' on it for crying out loud. I mean really, what chance did I ever have of not loving Castle? none! Seriously though, the show may have some obvious flaws in regards to how realistic its story lines are, but that cheeky writer and sexy detective give the show that perfect balance of humour and sex appeal (and eventually romance, yay!) to keep me coming back for more. A firm favourite of mine. :)
Dexter / As I'm sure many of you know, my all time favourite TV show (second only to 'Friends') would have to be Dexter. Although not currently airing (the final ever episode aired at the end of last month), I still consider Dexter to be one of my current favourites, because truthfully, I'm still in some denial about the fact that the show has finally ended. I could go on and on about why this show is awesome, but I'd much rather you all just found out for yourselves if you haven't had the pleasure to already. I'd liken Dexter to Breaking Bad in the sense that both shows are addictive, you love the main characters even though you'd probably hate them in real life, and both main characters finish out the final season with a beard (LOL!).
