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!
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.
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!
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!
