Whoever said art imitates life was probably confused. Here are 13 unrealistic TV shows we love anyway.
Alternate title: Three men and three little ladies. Don't even pretend you never wished for an Uncle Jesse of your very own.
The Walking Dead
Zombie. Apocalypse. Need we say more?
We're basically tuning in to Revenge for Emily Thorne's wardrobe. No one's closet is THAT fabulous in real life.
So Sean Lowe MIGHT HAVE been successful at finding love on The Bachelor, but let's be real. We watch this unrealistic show for the trainwreck-crazypants drama that unfolds every season.
Much like it's male-driven counterpart, The Bachelorette is a cause for much Monday night rubbernecking as we tune in to see if that season's woman will find love. The hopeless romantic inside us hopes she does.
He's an alien from Melmac who eats cats. We love him anyway.
Days of Our Lives
How many times can one person get married? Is a person really dead if there's no body? (No.) And yet? We tune in religiously.
It's totes possible to live in Manhattan and survive on a coffeehouse waitress salary. Yep. totally.
DAWSON'S CREEK IS TOTALLY REAL LIFE AND YOU WILL NEVER CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE!
How many times does Jack Bauer have to save the President and the country before we believe he's maybe NOT a terrorist? Sheesh! We're so ungrateful.
Boy Meets World
It's so great to solve all your problems in 30 minutes or less just by talking to your high school principal.
The Vampire Diaries and The Originals
Vampires. Werewolves. Hybrids. Doppelgangers. Witches. Magical Miracle Babies. Elijah Mikaelson. Damon Salvatore.
Medical dramas are among the most unrealistic of the unrealistic and we love them anyway. (What's not to love, really?)
