I go through phases with TV or Netflix shows. I’ll cram like 15,000 of them into the space of a month or I’ll go half a year without starting a single new show. There is no in-between. Right now, I am loving series, more so than films and am always on the lookout for the next one to consume my life. I’ve watched some cracking shows recently and luckily have enjoyed every single one of them massively. Which is a huge achievement because it usually takes me a while to find a show I love – especially if I’m suffering from a hangover from the previous one.
I didn’t watch this when it was on TV but got it on All 4 a month or so ago and wow! I absolutely loved it – it was definitely up my street and it’s such a creepy but interesting concept that’ll really get you thinking. If you like British shows and a sci-fi element, you’ll love this and I cannot wait for season 2 to start (I think it’s this year?)
Don’t Trust the B**** in Apartment 23
I wasn’t sure about this at first as I didn’t know whether it’d be my sense of humour but I love Krysten Ritter so I decided to give it a go. I think one of the main reasons I enjoyed this show so much was because I started watching it on one of my worst nights of this year and it completely took me away from everything for a little bit. Don’t you just love a show that does that? This was one of those low-key kinda shows for me that required no thinking and I loved it.
If you follow me on Twitter you will have seen my obsessive twitterings about this show – I even wrote a whole seperate blog post on it here. Lots of hype but I think it lived up to every bit of it – I was obsessed and to be honest, I haven’t really stopped thinking about it since I finished. There are so many damn unanswered questions about this storyline that season 2 needs to hurry the f up. Thankfully, it’s been confirmed for 2017 so now we wait…
Grace and Frankie
This was a recommendation from an old school friend after asking around on Twitter for a show to watch. Not something I probably would have actively sought out to watch myself and also not something I thought I would enjoy by my gosh it’s so good! I was hooked from the first episode. It’s great to watch a humorous series with older women, instead of a young cast in their 20’s and 30’s. Both the lead actresses are fucking fantastic and it’s so funny I just… Just watch it.
Have you seen any of these? What are your top recommendations right now? Let me know!
