What should you watch tonight? I can’t believe I haven’t done one of these TV round ups since last year! It’s safe to say that I have been watching more than my fair share of the box over the last couple of months! Here’s a round-up of what I’ve been loving on TV lately!
The Great Pottery Throw Down
British Bake Off, Sewing Bee, I’m obsessed with any and all of these weekly challenge semi-reality competition shows the BBC put out. The Pottery Throw Down is no exception and be still my Granny heart, but I find the tension nail biting and the catastrophes heartbreaking! I love seeing what the amateur potters create and Sarah Cox’s one liners. Who’d have thought waiting for a pot to come out of a kiln could be so exciting? I think I’d put my money on either Clover or Ryan to win! Though I love how out of the box Freya is! Who do you think will take the clay crown?
Once Upon a Time
Whenever a new season of this starts you will be sure to find it in my favourites! I have been obsessed since the first episode and this show continues to amaze and impress me! It’s take on the fairy tales we all grew up on are so dark, creative and unexpected, it’s kept me hooked! I’m looking forward to seeing more Aladdin/Jasmine for the second half of this season, as well as finding out who is under that damn saviour slaying hood!
It’s took me a while to finally get around to this one but I’m glad I did. I think Matt Smith makes an excellent Philip and Claire Foy is a marvellous young Elizabeth II. It’s a bit of a slow starter but it’s set itself up nicely and I love how it’s exploring both the family dynamics and political minefield in equal measure. John Lithgow as Churchill surprised me but I’ve come to really like his portrayal of the inspirational orator.
Brooklyn Nine Nine
This is one of those shows that I’ve heard talked about so much and have only ended up watching by chance but bloody hell am I hooked! The 20 minute episodes are easy to watch and hilarious. I’ve got to admit, I’m a little bit in love with Charles too! If you looking for some quick and easy escapism, this is perfect!
I have loved this show since the beginning and never seen it going for as long as it has - but I’m so glad it did! Clare Danes is phenomenal, there’s no other way to describe her. She is so raw and passionate and it comes across ten-fold! I’m loving whats developing between Carrie and our broken Quinn but the serious drama unfolding around them has me gripped!
I’ll admit, I only watched this film after it was mentioned in the Gilmore Girls reunion. I had no idea what it was about but it turned out to be an OK watch. I think the book will be much better and it’s on my to-be-read list somewhere! If you’re looking for a bit of an emotional road trip over a extra large bar of Galaxy and a glass of wine, this is perfect!
