Currently Watching #7

what to watch on tv tonight


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!

The Crown

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! 

Homeland

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!

Wild

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!

What have you been watching lately?

Until next time,

  2. I wanted to see Wild when it came out but never did. I've seen it on Netflix so i'm looking forward to watching this one evening. I've watched some but not all of Homeland. Either series 2 or series 3 was the last one I watched so i'm probably pretty behind. I get like that though, cos even though I want to catch up, it's the effort of working out where i'm up to and what happened last time that puts me off!

    1. Homeland is one of those that you need to keep up with! If I go more than a week between episodes of the new series then I totally forget and get really confused over what's happening!

  3. I think I'd really like to start watching The Crown, everyone seems to be loving it but I feel like I need to be in a certain mood to watch it. I'm wondering if it's similar to shows like The Tudors?

    1. It's nothing like the Tudors! Much more reserved and political and I doubt they will ever flash a boob! haha! But it is still well worth a watch if your into your monarchy dramas!

  4. You've reminded me that I really have to catch up on Once Upon A Time. I love how they keep managing to introduce new but familiar characters. I never realised just how many fairy tales there were to draw from ;)

    1. Once is by FAR one of my all time fave shows! It's game is so strong right now and they are doing some amazing things with tales we know and love! It amazes me that they keep finding more to add each season but in a way that really works!
