Astroholic: Tune into your sign

9 April 2014 By Ashley Beall, Assist. Video Producer No Comments

It seems all anybody can talk about today is television.

Everyone has their favorite show, and their star-sign could be influencing that choice. Unless it’s “Breaking Bad.” Everybody loves “Breaking Bad.”


Aries needs a show with a lot of action, which is why they can be found watching shows like “The Walking Dead,” “Sons of Anarchy” and “Firefly.”

Aries would do well to also check out “24” and “Arrow.”


Taurus prefers to binge watch shows that are slower-paced, but ultimately are very character driven. They like shows like “The Newsroom” and “Arrested Development.”

The bull should also look into “Dexter” and “Clannad.”


Gemini loves a program that makes them think. Their favorites may include “House of Cards,” “How It’s Made” or even the evening news.

Some shows they might want to try out are “Orphan Black” and “Archer.”


Cancer may be a very sentimental sign, but they love to watch comedies. Whether it’s “30 Rock,” “How I Met Your Mother” or “The Office,” the crab can’t stop watching. But since those are all over, Cancer also might want to look into “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “New Girl.”


Leo loves horror and suspense-type television shows, like “True Blood,” “Supernatural” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

If the lion is looking for something new however, they might want to expand their horizons to include shows like “Law and Order: SVU” and “Psych.”


Virgo watches shows where the plot makes sense, so you won’t be finding them watching “Glee.” You will more likely find them watching “True Detective,” “NCIS” or “Criminal Minds.”

If they haven’t yet, a good suggestion for Virgo would be “The Newsroom.”


Libra loves an anti-hero, which is why they’re stuck watching shows like “Mad Men,” “Sherlock” and “The Wire.”

However, Libra might be surprised to find that their tastes could also include “The Mentalist,” “Gossip Girl” and even “Seinfeld.”


Scorpio is another water sign with a taste for comedies.

The difference is that Scorpio generally prefers shows that make fun of him or herself, like “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “Community.”

They should also try out anything from “Monty Python,” “Malcolm in the Middle” and “South Park.”


Sagittarius loves science fiction, so they’re mostly drawn to shows like “Doctor Who” and “Star Trek.”

However, in the great big sci-fi world, there are a ton of shows to be checked out, such as “The X-Files,” “Babylon 5” and “Warehouse 13.”


Capricorn may be serious when it comes to work, but when they watch television, they hate serious. The goat loves “Jersey Shore,” “American Idol” and even “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

They should also look into “The Apprentice” and “Top Chef.”


Aquarius is a huge fan of the fantasy genre. They are huge advocates for shows like “Game of Thrones,” “Grimm” and “Once Upon a Time.”

Some other fantasy shows they might want to try out are “Merlin” and “Xena: Warrior Princess.”


Pisces prefer to watch shows that are intellectual but also very exciting, so they like shows like “House” or “Elementary.”

They would also probably enjoy “Vikings,” “Downton Abbey” and “The Tudors.”
