Did you know that today is National Television Day? I thought I’d share with you my favourite television programmes that are on at the moment or are available on catch-up. We also subscribe to both Netflix and Amazon Prime – I honestly don’t know when we fit in time to watch so much television! Once I go back to work, I know I’ll find it hard to choose which programmes to drop from my usual watchlist…
If you read my #LittleLoves posts on a Friday, then you’ll recognise a handful of these. Morgana over at Coffee Work Sleep Repeat hosts such a lovely link-up and it’s a great way to look back over the little things we’ve appreciated each week.
This week marks the finals week of Series 8 of Masterchef Australia. I found Masterchef Australia around 3 or 4 years ago on the Watch (now W) channel and absolutely love it. I profess to being a bit of a foodie, although not the best cook – hubs is better than I am. I enjoy learning about food, how it is cooked and Masterchef Australia ticks all those boxes and so many more. I haven’t watched the BBC’s Masterchef since as it’s just not as interesting (sorry, Beeb!).
The Walking Dead
This is a new find for me. So many friends have been watching for so long and I never fancied it… Good job I had some spare time on my maternity leave to catch up over the last six series! Yes, it’s a drama series about the world facing a zombie apocalypse. But it doesn’t stop there. The relationships that develop between the survivors, how they deal with forging a life for themselves and the incredible range of emotions that are experienced as a viewer is mind-blowing. I sit down each week to watch the new episode, knowing I’ll probably need some tissues. The special effects are amazing now too, compared to the first short series.
Another drama that’s quite a few series in, although I’m pretty sure you can catch up on Netflix. Absolutely fabulous. Suits follows Mike and Harvey as they work in a high-flying law firm. But, they aren’t as clean as you’d expect your lawyers to be! A fantastically written drama with a fast pace. A really good watch.
Strictly Come Dancing
Last, but not least, I’m absolutely loving this years Strictly Come Dancing series. So much so that I’m off to see the live tour in February – how exciting! There are so many great dancers this year, I’m struggling to choose a favourite. I must admit, I’m not a huge fan of Danny Mac… I find him a little too full of himself and over-confident; personality traits that I don’t really like. I have heard on the grapevine that this is Len’s last year as a judge though – I wonder who will take his place? Maybe Anton Du Bec – it certainly would be fitting!
