To this day, I think I might be one of the only people on earth who has never seen an episode of “Breaking Bad.” Even though the series has ended, its legend lives on, and I still find myself excluded from any and all Walter White-related water cooler conversation. But once a show has been on the air for a while, it seems like a daunting task to start watching from the beginning, sometimes having to catch up on several seasons, just to be able to understand why everyone keeps saying “bitch” at the end of every sentence. But I learned the hard way: it’s better to be late to the game than to never show up at all. If you’re crippled by FOMO and want to feel like you’re relevant in society, you should be watching at least one of these TV shows with cult followings … even if it means locking yourself inside for the rest of spring. Your street cred will thank you.

I watch a lot of television. One of my mother’s favorite stories involves her coming home from work and finding a three year-old me on her couch, pointing to a schedule grid in her TV Guide and asking to watch a primetime “Scooby Doo” special. As such I have a vast amount of useless pop culture knowledge. I can remember who shot J.R., when Sam first kissed Diane, and why I still want to kick Damon Lindelof in the balls over the “Lost” finale. I also remember a lot of really, really unnecessary rape scenes.
Like Laura Spencer’s rape on “General Hospital.” Krystle Carrington’s rape on “Dynasty.” Liz Spencer’s rape on “General Hospital.” Kelly Taylor’s rape on “Beverly Hills, 90210.” Naomi Clark’s rape on “90210.” Joan Holloway’s rape on “Mad Men.” Tara Thorton’s rape on “True Blood.” Gemma Morrow’s rape on “Sons of Anarchy.” Gillian Darmody’s rape on “Boardwalk Empire.” Buffy Summers’ almost-rape on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Madison Montgomery’s rape on “American Horror Story: Coven.” [Warning: Spoilers after the jump.] Keep reading »
