The nights are getting darker, colder, and I'm finding myself curled up on the couch under more and more blankets with more and more candles being lit by the night, so of course, I've been getting through a fair bit of TV. Let's have a look at what the remote's been landing on lately!
Million Dollar Princesses
I am obsessed with anything to do with aristocracy, high society, Royals, court drama and scandal, the life and times of the rich, the glamorous and the scandalous that have come before us. I’ve been loving this look at the rather rich and rambunctious American princesses who married into English titles, had their hearts broken, who broke conventional society rules and who paved the way for all those who came after them.
I’ve just finished season 2 and it was just as amazing as season 1. I’m not even going to pretend like I know what happened throughout most of the latest season but it had me enthralled from episode 1 and it’s nice to see them keep moving forward, with complex character development and a surreal journey into the characters psyche that has you questioning everything you’ve seen them do for 2 seasons!
Hands down, season 2 is better than season 1 - and I really enjoyed the first season but the villans have stolen the show! I still can’t quite get my head around Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon, I mean I love him and it works, but he will forever be my Ryan Atwood!
Well, who isn’t watching this now it’s made a 7 season appearance on Netflix? I remember watching the odd episode with my Mum years ago, she was a huge fan and she would watch so many I could never catch up! It feels like the perfect on the couch with a brew kind of show that just gives me all the feels.
Great British Bake Off
I can’t watch a single episode without a cake of some sort (preferably themed to match the theme that week) in one hand, and a brew in the other. It just has to be done. I did plan on baking along this year but well, that just hasn’t happened! I am itching to get baking again though so you might get lucky and see a few Bake Off inspired bakes appearing on Instagram!
American Horror S6 - Roanoke
Eeeek!! I am in love with this show and have been since season 1, but when I realised what season 6 was going to be based on - OH I hope it’s going to be as good, if not better than Coven, which has been my favourite season by far! I love the whole mystery and conspiracy around Roanoke so I can’t wait to see their terrifying take on it!
Remember how I said I love things to do with the monarchy, Royals, the courts etc? I do love a good period drama and I’ve been loving ITV’s Victoria. I find her a fascinating monarch and I am surprised by how much I like Jenna Coleman as Victoria, though she hasn’t quite beat Emily Blunts portrayal just yet!
