Shag, Marry, Kill: My TV Show Favorites

5/01/2013

I came across an interesting article read on Refinery 29 with a play on Shag, Marry, Kill and I thought I'd do my own version of the game using the TV shows that I'm currently watching. I thought this would be a fun post where I could talk about the shows I love to watch. But I realize that you won't find it funny if you don't watch these shows.A serial killer/writer forms a cult following of psychotics who do his bidding, which includes tormenting a former FBI agent who is trying to stop him  

Shag: Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) ~ because he has a mystery about him that can be enticing, but his determination that death follows him everywhere is enough to make me want to stay away.
Marry: Jacob Wells (Nico Tortorella) ~ although he clearly has sheep mentality seeing that he's a member of a psychotic cult, he doesn't always follow the herd, which makes me believe I could tie him down.
Kill: Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) ~ I do think he has a way with words and that he can obviously draw a crowd, but his infatuation with Edgar Allen Poe is just too high on the crazy scale for me.
The funny trials and tribulations of what it really takes to be the Vice President of the United States...with an incompetent bunch of office lackeys

Shag: Dan Egan (Reid Scott) ~ because his face says "cool, smart and funny" but when he talks you realize that he just wants to use you to get a job in the oval office.
Marry: Gary Walsh (Tony Hale) ~ he's the only sweet person in an office full of ladder-jumping jerks. And I know that if I misplace my cosmetics, he'd be the first in line at the drugstore buying me a lifetime supply of mascara.
Kill: Jonah Ryan (Timothy Simons) ~ because he's always flaunting his high-ranking job in my face. And because no one has the right to be that tall and that obnoxious at the same time.
The inner workings of a small town's office that focuses on a city councilwoman and her odd band of employees

Shag: Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe) ~ It's obvious. He is a well-oiled machine who literally takes better care of his body than anyone else on the planet.
Marry: Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) ~ because I'll never have to worry about getting fat on carbs seeing that we'd only eat pounds of meat . Plus, he moonlights as a jazz musician and plays a mean sax.
Kill: Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari) ~ although Jerry is the clear choice for this, I'm going with Tom because I think he'd be more in love with his smartphone than with me.
Seven noble families fight for control of the kingdom in Westeros while in-fighting, white walkers and dragons loom

Shag: Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) ~ clearly this kingslayer has a super chiseled face and enough charm and wit that would make me forget how much of a bad person he really is...for a while.
Marry: Jon Snow (Kit Harington) ~ the cutest man on the night's watch who seems like he has a heart of gold. And who doesn't want a wolf named Ghost as a pet?
Kill: Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) ~ because I have to pick up Batman's slack for not killing him when he had the chance...and because he's a total pansy.

Do you watch any of these shows? Which characters would you shag, marry kill?

  21. Dude, I am totally with you....my ideal husband would be Tony Hale + Nick Offerman + Nico Tortorella!! The same with the shags - seriously!! I would spare Tom Haverford, like a clown, he amuses me. Great taste in TV shows!! Stopping by from Katherine's Corner.
