The personal likes of a music loving, book reading, film watching obsessive geek who spends way too much time watching TV and getting emotionally attached to fictional characters.

Top 35 TV Shows of 2013

11. Enlightened

Well, if caring about something other than money is dopey, I’m a fucking moron

Amy Jellicoe is the embodiment of the virtues and problems of being a believer in social justice. She desperately wants to do right and help the little people but constantly rubs people the wrong way or takes a naive approach to whatever new cause she is championing. She is awkward and really has no idea how irritating she can be. Yet Amy Jellicoe is a hero for this age because she doesn’t give up, because her desire to make herself and the people around her better ends up being her strength.

Amy really can be a polarizing character and when I first started Enlightened I was really unsure about her and the show but then the whistleblower storyline happened and the series became one of my favourites of the year.  Amy plots and conspires with the hapless and shy Tyler to take down the evil corporation they work for, it goes about as well as you can imagine for Amy doesn’t really think about the full consequences of telling all to opportunistic journalist Jeff.

In the final episode that sadly became the series finale Amy says screw it and stands up not only for the little people, the drone workers of Abaddonn but for herself. She has been repeatedly cast as crazy by the company ever since her breakdown at the start of the series but in the scene in which she faces the CEO Charles Szidon Amy just accepts who she wants to be and that is someone who cares and fuck the consequences. It is better to care and fail than not bother at all.

All around Amy her friends changed for the better because of her positive influence. Ex-husband Levi finally got clean, Tyler managed to find enough confidence to find love and even Dougie became more than just the slightly creepy boss.

Amy was idealistic and naive but she actually stood by her principles and she gets her well deserved victory at the end.  I’m going to miss that confusing, frustrating and ultimately kind of wonderful woman.

Enlightened.
* 2011     † 2013

So so so devastated HBO cancelled this show, it was one of their top 3 current shows IMO (the other two being Boardwalk and GOT). To lose it so soon after a perfect second season is unjust, especially when other shows get all the limelight.

I am an agent of change. 

Never thought I would see fanart for this show, I love you Internet

Man I love Dougie now, S2 really made him an interesting character.

Amy Jellicoe 02x08 ‘Agent of Change’ Enlightened

Amy may well have become my new fictional hero.

I kind of need to write a few thousand words about my love for this show.  Because even though its only March, Enlightened is definitely in my top ten shows for 2013, maybe even top 5.

Love their relationship

- You are the only one that ever believed in me. Why did you?
- Because I loved you.

This show is so good, Luke Wilson and Laura Dern killed it last night,

Amy is becoming more deluded as the season progresses. I’m worried she is going to have another breakdown.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions

Enlightened 02x02 ‘Revenge play’

Enlightened is having one hell of a second season. It is a hard show to recommend to people as I imagine Amy may annoy some but its really getting good this season.

I’m not used to things going my way.

Just watched the whole of S1 of Enlightened today. At first I was unsure about it but I really love where the show is headed at the end of the season and into S2. The whole Amy vs Abaddonn is really interesting. Also like spending time with Tyler.
