My Favourite TV Shows

Hi guys! A different kind of post from me today, all about my favourite TV shows and what I’m looking forward to watching this year.

This is a post in collaboration with Oled TV Panasonic. They’re high definition televisions, with a sleek design and bright, colourful display. Perfect to watch a new series on! 

During winter, I love to snuggle down with a hot drink and put on a familiar show when I get home from work. There’s so many shows I enjoy, it really just depends on the mood I’m in! So onto the programmes – I’m going to categorise these as I feel my viewing varies quite a lot!

American Dramas

Anyone who knows me will know first and foremost that I love classic teen drama series like Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, Gilmore Girls. I’ve watched these so much now that I can put them on as background viewing when I’m cooking, writing blog posts etc! If I had to choose one though it’d definitely be Gossip Girl – Serena is my favourite character (controversial?).

I also watch Riverdale, and if anyone has any idea what’s going on anymore please let me know.

A slightly more grown up version of these, Sex and the City is also a favourite.

Netflix Series

I have just finished watching Sex Education, which I thoroughly recommend. It’s a weird mix of American looking high school and English accents – filmed at the University of South Wales campus but with Letterman jackets and American footballs. Apparently it was done in a bid to attract a wider audience, and there’s a lot of hype around it so it’s evidently worked! I’m already excited for the next series.

13 Reasons Why was a book I read a long time ago, and I was glad the series didn’t disappoint, even if it’s quite hard to watch in parts. I am interested to see where this goes in season three.

Black Mirror is another favourite, and I have just watched Bandersnatch which was a really cool concept – you choose his actions which determines the outcome. My favourite episodes though have to be San Junipero, Nosedive and Crocodile.

I am currently partway through You, which is good despite the fact I will never see Penn Badgley as anyone except Dan Humphrey. I do love a good psychological thriller!

Sitcoms

One of my favourite genres, there are countless UK sitcoms I love, even if the awkwardness and cringe comedy is painful to watch sometimes.

Peep Show is probably my favourite example of this. I think most people can see a little Jeremy and Mark in themselves.

The Inbetweeners is of course a great example of the tragic teenage years, and Fresh Meat chronicles the only marginally less tragic University ones. Friday Night Dinner is a great insight into a dysfunctional family. Miranda often has me howling with laughter.

Outnumbered, Gavin and Stacey and Not Going Out also deserve a mention here, as does The Royle Family which we watch every Christmas.

The main American sitcom I love is of course Friends. I have also just started watching the US Office for the first time, having never been able to get into the UK series, and I am honestly shocked that for once I prefer the American humour! Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 is one I stumbled across, and makes for slightly strange but hilarious viewing.

The ones on my ‘to watch’ list

So, I am ashamed to admit I’ve never watched some of these, but this is a list I’ve built up from other people’s recommendations that I do genuinely plan to watch;

  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
  • Peaky Blinders
  • Stranger Things

I hope you enjoyed this insight into my favourite TV programmes! Did I include your favourites? Do you totally disagree? Let me know in the comments!

    Friday Night Dinner was the thing which made shouting Shit On It, and using bastard as an adjective for everything totally acceptable in my house. Before that my mum didn’t even like the word crap!
