It’s me. It’s the tv. It’s shows I’ve been loving lately, what more of an introduction do you need? So let’s talk all about what's been going on on the box!
Orange is the New Black Season 4
I won’t lie, I wasn’t totally looking forward to the latest season, season 3 was shite. I’m sorry. But it was. Seasons 1 & 2 were brilliant and season 3 just ruined it for me, so I haven’t exactly been waiting with baited breath. I know a lot of people have binged their way right through season 4 just days after it come out, I’m on about episode 5 or 6 right now and all I can say is meh. It’s better than season 3, though that wouldn’t be a hard one to beat but it’s still not totally grabbed me the way the earlier seasons did. I’m sticking with it purely because everyone keeps telling me how friggin awesome it is. But then again, people told me Kimmy Schmidt was amaze-balls too and that made my eyes bleed so….let’s wait and see.
Let me start by saying WHY HAVE I ONLY JUST STARTED TO PUT MYSELF THROUGH THIS?? Because I know there is only one series. And it’s not as amazing as everyone says - IT’S BETTER. Better. The caps are necessary. VERY. From the first episode, I’ve been totally hooked and I’m desperately trying to eek out the last couple of episodes just to make it last a little bit longer. On what planet does a show like this get cancelled when other shows, get to go on forever with no plot, no characters, no meaning and awful writing? What’s with that? I swear by my pretty floral bonnet I will be jumping right into the fan fiction once the final credits role, I’m nowhere near ready for this to be over!
I think I’m in a cowboy kinda mood lately, though these cowboys have far fewer laser blasters and space travel. Another show I hear was cut short, but at least there’s three seasons for me to watch. I’m hooked, it’s so well written, amazing characters and somewhat based on the real Deadwood which hooks me in even more. It’s amazing seeing the young, fresher faces of actors and actresses I know so well from other shows.
The Great British Sewing Bee
It’s like the bake off, but sewing machines and pattern cutting instead of fondant icing and burnt cakes. I am in love. I have always wanted to sew. I took textiles when I was 16 for my GCSE’s but never really got to get all that creative, plus I was very anti-dress back then. Now, I wish I had done more, and would love to get my hand on a machine and learn how to make my own clothes, especially skater dresses. I genuinely love seeing what the contestants create, especially in the modification challenge! I also love shows that don’t involve the public vote, it’s all down to the judges and the contestants raw talent. I can’t be doing with publicity contests! It’s the final this week and my money is on Joyce or Charlotte to win! Sorry Jade!
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
I feel like I waited forever and a day for the latest seasons to make an appearance on Netflix, and then seemed to forget all about them. We’ve absolutely blitzed our way through season 10 and are steadily going through season 11. Watching one of these is easily the funniest 20 minutes of my day. The episode where Mac and Dennis move to the suburbs is basically how I see my life when I move out of the city centre! The latest seasons have really pushed the boat out, both with the comedy and the sketches, everything has taken a much more risqué turn compared with past seasons but they do it so well!
