What I’ve been Watching Lately

tv shows
When you finish a great tv show does it ever take you a few days to get over the fact that its not in your life anymore? You try starting a new show but nothing else quite compares.. No Just Me? Okay..

I always feel a little lost when a TV show I’ve been binge watching ends. Mainly I think because I hate being in silence so I always like having something on in the background. It then leads to scrolling through Netflix trying to find something new. Usually I’ll pick a couple I most want to watch then watch the first episode of each and pick my favourite. So as you can see I have way to much time on my hands.. I have also watched a lot of tv shows over the past few months.

Dawson’s Creek

Four Friends in a small costal town help each other cope with adolsence.

I spent most of the summer binge watching Dawson’s Creek. I’m about a decade late to the party but I did end up really liking the show. It was a little slow at times and I dipped in & out of watching it. But by the time I got to season 5 & 6 I binge watched them two within two weeks. At that point I just wanted to finish it. I did however love how they ended the show & I admit I cried a lot at the ending.

Brooklyn Nine Nine

Comedy featuring detectives of the NYPD Brooklyn 99th Precinct.

I loved Brooklyn Nine Nine, I don’t know why it took me so long to watch it. Brooklyn Nine Nine is hilarious and its one of those shows that I keep going back & watching the odd episode. I can’t wait t see season 5 now hopefully they add it to Netflix soon.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

As her 16th Birthday nears, Sabrina must choose between the witch world of her family & the human world of her friends.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a Netflix original show that puts a darker spin on the Sabrina the teenage witch I remember. Sabrina half witch, half human deals with her teen life ,becoming a full witch & leaving her human life behind. I’m still on the fence with this one, the first few episodes were really good then I started to lose interest a little. Hopefully Part 2 is better.

A Discovery of Witches

Diana Bishop, Historian & witch accessess Ashmole 782 & knows she must solve its mysteries. She is offered help by the enigmatic Matthew Clairmont but he’s a vampire & witches should never trust vampires.

I think I’ve went on about the Discovery of Witches show a lot here on the blog but its too good not to. Based on the books of the same name. A discovery of witches follows diana bishop a witch who falls for matthew clairmont a vampire. The two are forbidden to be together because of an age old convent. Leading them into a fight to stay together.

The Last Tycoon

Centers on Hollywood’s first wunderkind studio executive in the 1930’s, Monroe Stahr and the power struggle between him and his mentor & current head of the studio Par Brady.

This was maybe my third viewing of The Last Tycoon and I finally managed to see the end. In truth I originally only watched it because Matt Bomer plays Monroe Stahr but once I read the book I was interested to see how they adapted it for tv. It wasn’t the best show I’m just glad I got through it all.

The Big Bang Theory

After finishing Brooklyn Nine Nine i needed another comedy that I could just put on in the background that I didn’t have to pay much attention to but that I’d still enjoy. So I went for The Big Bang Theory. I used to watch it when it first aired but I haven’t properly seen the last 4 or 5 seasons. And I forgot how funny this show is. It’s a required taste I think but it’s easy watching and is guaranteed to make you laugh.

The Bold Type

Inspired by the life of ‘Cosmopolitan” editor in cheif, Joanna Coles. The show is a glimpse into the outrageous lives and loves of those responsible for a global women’s magazine.

I love this show, it’s the perfect show for woman our age. It’s almost like a sex & the city for millennials and one of the most relatable shows around. From sex to fashion to relationships and awkward moments this show has it all.

Great News

This so is so funny yet so cheesy. Great News is that classic American comedy that’s pretty cheesy but you end up loving it. Carol becomes and intern at the news station her daughter works at. There is only 2 season so it’s pretty easy to binge watch. Created by Tracey Wigfeild ( from the Mindy Project ) and Produced by Tina Fey so it is along the same comedy lines as Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and the Mindy Project. There are some hilarious one liners and its one of those shows
