Hamilton’s Favorite TV Shows


Solenn Vincent

With multiple streaming services, viewing platforms, and thousands of movies to choose from, people today have so many options in regards to entertainment. Here at Hamilton High, I decided to interview some staff and students to get an idea of the opinions of the student body.

“What is your favorite TV show and why,” is the question I posed. Here are the responses I received:

“‘New Girl’ is my comfort show for me – each episode is its own stand-alone story.”  Haley Lee, grade 11 said.

“New Girl” is about how after a bad break-up, Jess, an offbeat young woman, moves into an apartment loft with three single men. Although they find her behavior very unusual, the men support her – most of the time.

“Probably ‘Brooklyn 99,’ because it’s really funny.” Mara McPhail, grade 11 said.

“Brooklyn 99” is a comedy series following the exploits of Det. Jake Peralta and his diverse, lovable colleagues as they police the New York Police Department’s 99th Precinct.

“‘Peaky Blinders’ is set in the Roaring 20s, which is my favorite time period. It is a historical drama, so it is accurate, but with some tweaks to make it more entertaining.” Mr. Shough, AZ/US History and Criminal Justice teacher said. 

Set in Birmingham, England, the show follows the exploits of the Peaky Blinders crime gang in the direct aftermath of the First World War. 

“I like ‘South Park’ because it’s dumb yet entertaining; it doesn’t involve thinking to enjoy the show.” Jesu Coria, foreign exchange student said.

“South Park” Follows the misadventures of four irreverent grade-schoolers in the quiet, dysfunctional town of South Park, Colorado. The curious, adventure-seeking, fourth grade group of 10 year old boys, Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny, all join in in buffoonish adventures that sometimes evolve nothing.

“‘Gray’s Anatomy’ is pretty great, I like learning about surgery.”  Rilee Meier, grade 11 said.

The series focuses on the lives of surgical interns, residents, and attendants as they develop into seasoned doctors while balancing personal and professional relationships.

Maybe you will find some new recommendations, too!
