GIFTED | If you wanna know something about me, it’s that I absolutely LOVE a good series. I mean, that’s hardly groundbreaking, most of us do but I get through TV series like I get through hot dinners. I think getting into a new series which totally immerses you is one of the best feelings. The characters begin to feel like friends, the settings become as familiar to you as your own house and when that series ends, you genuinely don’t know how you’re going to manage without watching it every day. I’d pick a series over a movie any day of the week.
I’ve done plenty of series recommendation type posts before but my series watching moves so incredibly fast that I always have something new to talk about or recommend! So strap in, here are some series I’ve been absolutely loving recently, semi-recently or just some firm favourites which you should check out!
The Umbrella Academy
At the time of writing, this is my most recently viewed series and it was fantastic. A really unique story-line, with great characters and an incredible soundtrack!
If you’ve seen ‘You’ then you’ll like Dirty John. But Joe from you is like a puppy dog compared to John. A really chilling and intense series which I just loved.
Guess who took 5 years to jump on the Luther bandwagon? This gal. Yes, I know I’m late to the party but I’ve recently finished all I can of Luther on Netflix and as Crime series go, this is probably one of the best!
The Haunting of Hill House
This was my favourite series I watched in 2018 and my boyfriend and I recently re-watched the entire thing because we love it so much. It’s going to take a lot to beat Hill house and it’s residents.
For something fun, with plenty of dark comedy, Russian Doll is THE series for it. Natasha Lyonne is complete perfection and Russian Doll is definitely up there with my favourites.
Grace and Frankie
I could harp on about Grace and Frankie all day and why everyone should watch it. The latest series was released earlier this year and it keeps up with the same humour and charm right since the beginning.
Sex Education took the world by storm and it’s not a surprise! A weird present day / 1970’s British/American but set in Wales setting and environment but with humour and topics which transcend time and place. It was just perfect.
And what better snack to munch on along with your favourite series than popcorn? Which is lucky because today I also have loads of incredibly flavours from Popcorn Shed to share with you, which were kindly sent to me for a feature. I’ve tried a couple of Popcorn Shed flavours before but I’ll briefly share my thoughts on all the flavours below!
Berry-licious (Caramel and raspberry with dark chocolate): Hands down my favourite out of all of them. You get a really beautiful kick of raspberry as soon as you bite into it!
Pecan Pie (Caramel with pecan nut pieces): My boyfriend and I have tried these ones before and really enjoyed them. They’re not too sweet but just right.
Butterly Nuts (Peanut butter and caramel with peanuts): If you like peanut butter then you’ll LOVE these! I did. Very peanutty – which is good, obviously!
Salted Caramel (Salted caramel with milk chocolate): I love anything salted caramel flavour so I loved these ones too. I’m not very picky when it comes to food and flavours… in case you couldn’t tell.
Sweet Cheesus (A mix of cheddar cheese and caramel): Well this was an interesting mix! Can’t say these would be for everyone but it’s a nice mix of sweet and savour if you can’t make up your mind!
Say Cheese! (Cheddar cheese): Very unusual – I’ve never had cheese flavoured popcorn before and they were an interesting flavour! I love cheese and these were cheese-Y! But got a little sickly for me after a while!
Pop’n’Choc (Chocolate and caramel with milk chocolate): I love these ones! I’ve tried them before and chocolate popcorn is the ONE.
Popcorn Shed come in the handy 80g boxes, which are perfect for sharing during a movie or TV series (pffft!) or the snack size 16g bags, which are ideal to grab and go with. I love the huge range of flavours that Popcorn Shed create – they’re a far cry from your bog standard ‘sweet or salty?’ at the cinema! All their flavours are gluten free and made with natural ingredients. Double win!
What series are you watching at the moment? Any recommendations? And have you tried Popcorn Shed before? Which flavours from those mentioned above would you love to try? Let me know!
