#AtoZChallenge Theme: TV Sitcoms

by - March 21, 2016

I see so many fellow bloggers taking up the April A to Z challenge (wherein you blog every day of the month based on a theme and corresponding to the sequential letters of the alphabet). I keep telling myself that this is beyond me. I have never participated before. Barely completed 7 day blog marathons. And this is a whole month!

26 blogs in a month based on the A to Z of a single topic. Do I even know any topic well enough to write 26 articles on it?

As I sat pondering and debating topics while once more having dinner and watching reruns on the laptop, it dawned on me that the answer had been in front of me all along. Literally, in front of me (anyone who says "your belly?" will be banned from this blog for the next 24 hours and will have to get written permission from a local guardian before returning back.)

Tv shows. 
I'm a Tv show addict. Have been since I first watched the likes of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Wonder Years as a kid in Dubai back in the '80s. Add to it the fact that I am a trivia junkie, always looking for the inside story behind so many things we see everyday. 
And that's one of the few things I can bring to the table in this challenge: my innate geekiness merged with being a TV sitcom lover.

So (drum roll) the theme of my A to Z challenge for 2016 will be: 

TV Sitcoms.


While some alphabets will stick to individual shows that I consider worth watching for being unique in some way, others will focus on aspects such as the many quirks and oddities that made certain Tv characters or actors unique. Fellow TV show fans will love to read on their favourites while others will get an idea about shows they probably haven't checked out till date and are really missing out on. Who knows? You might find a new 'fav show of all time'. Isn't that a win-win for everyone?

So after all the awesome lyrical posts you see during this challenge across various blogs, if you would like to just unwind, learn some fun trivia, find new shows and see what makes them binge-worthy, do stop by at Godyears everyday in April.

Touchwood, there will be some ways to make it fun and unique for every day.

Have a great week everyone.

    1. That's the plan... to give those who don't watch something to consider. Since I watch most genres, invariably there will be some show that will appeal to everyone hopefully.

  3. I've been doing the A/Z Challenge for 4 years now and I've never ran across anyone doing a TV sitcoms before as their theme. Definitely a cute one and a lot of people will be able to relate to it as I think we all have our favorite sitcoms out there! Have a fun challenge!

  6. You would be surprised to know this, but I'm not a great fan of TV shows. I like reality shows, though- specially the ones in which Gordon Ramsay stars *hides face*

    But as you said, I might find a new favourite show among the 26 that you will post about!


    Don't worry about completing the challenge. Just take it one day at a time. Writing at a stretch and scheduling posts helps. Because then you can devote time to reading, which in turn will inspire you to keep writing.

    And of course, all of us bloggers are here to cheer you on through April!

    Cheers :D

  9. I am going to follow this one! Roshan, I am a tv sitcom fan and have many favorites. Let me see how many of my choices do you feature. Star trek and CSI along with Bones and House should feature. :) I love the medical ones, what can I say! Not got a single scientific bone in my body but love their logic! All the best.

    1. Glad to see a fellow sitcom fan around :)
      And you put me in a dilemma... Many good shows start with the same alphabet and I only get to use the alphabet once. For example, Bones competes with Big Bang Theory, Boston Legal, Brooklyn 99 and so many others :)
      Some letters leave you spoiled for choice... others you struggle to find even one!
