My TV Listings | December 2016

It’s the final month of 2016 – where the heck has the year gone? I can’t believe it’s almost the end of 2016 and I want to thank all you guys who have stayed with me this year because it just means so much to me…

The Graham Norton Show

Yes, I love this show but that’s because it’s so entertaining and funny and easy to watch and I’ve actually been introduced to some of my new favourite celebs because of this show.

The Apprentice

I’m not going to be giving any spoilers for this series, but I love The Apprentice. Yes, half the people on this show are arrogant and full of themselves but the other half are actually very nice people and there are some very smart people who appear on this show too. This series was very entertaining and I can’t wait to go for the next one!

Close to the Enemy

While this show might not be as good as Dancing on the Edge it’s still an enjoyable and intriguing show set just after World War Two. All of the characters are really complex and interesting and while I might not understand every little thing that happens in this show, I like the general plot of the show and the romance between the characters.

Strictly Come Dancing

Again, I won’t spoil anything for anyone who doesn’t know the outcome of this series but this was definitely one of my favourite series so far. It’s sad that is was Len Goodman’s last one but the array of celebrities and personalities definitely made this series a fantastic one to watch.

Nikita

I’m still slowly working my way through the first series of this show and the episodes that I managed to watch this month were brilliant. I’ve really begun to love Nikita as well as my baby Alex and I’m loving seeing them working together and the shenanigans that they get up to. It’s engaging and fast-paced and I love the characters and the romance and the action. It’s just brilliant!

Only Connect

Still watching this show! It’s incredibly hard and challenging but is also amusing and just really easy to watch, especially with the wit and charm of its host Victoria Coren-Mitchell.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I really love this show and the most recent episodes have been some of the best in the series, at least in my opinion. Every episode is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and the characters are all so clever and quirky and engaging that every second is a joy to watch.

Agents of SHIELD

This show returned this month from its random mid-season hiatus and oh boy, were there some good few episodes. If you’re a lover of Mac and Elena and have been seriously frustrated over the last few episodes about their relationship, then rejoice those kinks are ‘sorted’ out. This show definitely has its ups and downs but when it’s an up, it’s magical.

My TV Listings | November 2016

November is my favourite month of the year because it’s my birthday month and I’ve been enjoying watching some new episodes of a lot of my favourite shows!

Only Connect

One of my favourite quiz shows is still weekly gracing my screen and despite the fact that the questions are practically impossible, I still watch the show religiously ever week. I love Victoria Coren-Mitchell and I think she’s a brilliant role model.

The Victorian Slum

The Victorian Era is my favourite period in history to study and learn about and I am going to take any chance to watch something based in this period. This show is really informative and engaging and I really like the variety of topics that are covered in the show too.

Nikita

I’m still slowly making my way through the first series of Nikita and while I’m only on episode 12, I am still heartily enjoying it. I adore the characters as they’re all very complex and interesting and every episode is fast-paced and engaging and exciting. I can’t wait to see where the next episodes go because the last episode I watched had a major cliff hanger!

American Horror Story

The latest series of American Horror Story is certainly weird and creepy and nothing like any of the previous series. I think it’s a love it or hate it thing. It’s definitely not my favourite series but there’s just something so engaging and enthralling about it that I just can’t stop watching it.

The Graham Norton Show

I know you’re all probably bored of me ranting on about how much I love Graham Norton but I really do. He’s just so funny and warm and British and I will always watch this show even if I don’t really know who the guests are.

Agents of SHIELD

As my love for Marvel knows no bounds, this show is still a regular fixture in my TV listings and will continue to be until the end of time. This series is quite different as there are a lot of changes and new characters but it’s still interesting and fast-paced and funny and still very enjoyable to watch.

The Apprentice

This show might not be fully filling the void that Bake Off left inside my heart, but it makes a very decent replacement. This is such a British show and I continue to watch it every single year because of the humour and variety of people that appear on the show. Obviously, some of the people are the arrogant business heads the show is famous for but some people are just genuinely nice people, I promise.

Strictly Come Dancing

Strictly Come Dancing is the program of my childhood and it’s been engrained into me from a young age that Strictly is far superior to X Factor(sorry!) I watch this show every single year and I’m really loved this series in particular. Some of the contestants are fabulous and I love how enjoyable and entertaining it is.

How To Get Away With Murder

This show has pretty much taken over my life. This series is very different to previous series and I might not agree with every single thing that is happening (I am NOT on board with Wes and Laurel, I need Frank back in my life!) but I’m just so happy that this funny, dark and gripping show is back in my life. Yet again, the show is building up to a big traumatic event from the beginning and I’m so nervous to see what the final outcome will be, but also very excited.

Close to the Enemy

I love watching original British dramas, and this is one that recently caught my attention. I loved Dancing on the Edge, and this is written by the same people. It’s set just after the end of World War II and there is intrigue and suspense and an extremely dashing main character who I may or may not be slightly in love with.

Back in Time for Brixton

I’m loving watching these kind of social documentaries recently and I felt like this one was a really important one for me to watch. It follows a black family, whose roots lay in the Caribbean, living through the years of 1945 into the 1980s and experiencing what their relatives would have gone through when they emigrated to the UK. This was  a really interesting and informative program – and quite shocking at times – and I’m really glad that I decided to watch it.

 

My TV Listings | October 2016

I can’t believe that it’s actually the end of October! That means that it’s almost my birthday month and Christmas is very quickly approaching. I’ve desperately been playing catch-up on all my favourite shows lately because homework is a TV killer.

Mock The Week

My weekly dose of political comedy panel comes in the form of Mock the Week and this is one of the only comedy shows that I will religiously watch every week. It’s funny and informative with a variety of guests and topics and I love it.

The Graham Norton Show

This show returned to our screens this month and it’s just as entertaining and amusing as ever. I love Graham Norton’s friendly and warm attitude and the way he talks to people and the collection of guests that appear on this show is insane. There is always someone you like on and it just makes very entertaining viewing.

American Horror Story

I still have very little idea of what the heck is happening in this series but things are certainly weird and creepy. This series is definitely not for everyone, and it’s by no way my favourite, but it’s so unique and intriguing that I just can’t stop watching.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

This is my 20 minute pick me up show and I can always rely on it to make me smile. This series certainly isn’t as laugh out loud as previous series as it does have a darker and more serious tone but it is still extremely funny and enjoyable to watch.

Ripper Street

My favourite show ever has finished up its penultimate series and I cannot wait to see where the final series goes because that ending was NOT FUN TO WATCH! But, of course, I wish that this series never had to end and it could just keep going and going and going forever because I love these characters and the complex world and just how hilarious every episode is.

Agents of SHIELD

This series has a very different tone and feel from the last one, but it’s still just as interesting and complex as all the previous series. I’m only a few episodes in but it’s already full of action and suspense and humour, with lots of links to the MCU, and some very intriguing characters. And, of course, my beloved Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons.

How To Get Away With Murder

This show knows just how to keep the audience on their toes and this series is no exception. Every episode is packed full of drama and suspense and tension as well as some humour and brilliant one-liners. I’m not sure I can cope with the tension in this series but there’s no way I’m going to stop watching because it’s just so addicting.

Daredevil

I’m continuing to slowly make my way through this show and while it may be a tad confusing at times, I am still thoroughly enjoying it. I love the relationships between all the different characters and how funny each episode is, despite the plot being very dark and sinister.

Nikita

I’m very slowly making my way through this series and I’m thoroughly enjoying every minute of it. The plot is fast paced and interesting and every episode is packed full of action and drama and also hints of humour and sarcasm. I love the complex characters and how the full story is never revealed to the audience and there are always more unanswered questions.

Only Connect

I’m still watching this show religiously because it makes me feel ridiculously clever when I manage to answer even one question because every question is always stupidly hard. I also watch this show for Victoria Coren-Mitchell who I think is just a fantastic person and role model in general, for women on TV.

The Apprentice

Another show that I religiously watch year after year whenever a new series airs on the BBC is The Apprentice and the new series began this month. The Apprentice is not one of those shows that should be funny but it just is. The mixture of people and personalities that make on this show just make all the egos and attitudes rise to the surface and with Lord Sugar, Karren Brady and Claude Litner’s scathing sarcasm what more could you want?

The Victorian Slum

My favourite period to study and learn about in history is the Victorian era, so any occasion as to which I can watch anything on that subject I will definitely take. This is a new program by the BBC showing what it was like in the Victorian slums and this first episode shows the lives of poor people throughout the 1860s and just what struggles they had to deal with. It was really informative and engaging and I’ll definitely be watching the rest of the episodes in this series.
