My favourite TV Shows so far…..

June 19

I’m going to prepare you for this one. It’s going to be long! I wanted to write a post on some of my favourite shows that I’ve seen or am seeing so far. Some are recent, some are old, some are quite possibly the best shows ever made and one or two may be shows I just love for sentimental reasons.  There will be some shows missing from this list. I haven’t seen (yet) The Wire, The shield, Homeland and some others so if you don’t see these in the list, this is why. Remember, this is my opinion only and we all feel differently about things. However, if I have missed a show and you think it is one worth seeing, please let me know about it in the comments. I appreciate any suggestions on how I can happily while away the hours of my life! Just to clarify, the shows are more drama based, not comedy as I feel like comedy shows should have their own list. I might do a post later on my favourite comedy shows so watch this space!

DISCLAIMER: There will be SOME spoilers but I will try to be somewhat cryptic so as not to give everything away.

Anyway, let’s kick things off with my number 1…..

LOST: Why Kate and Juliet do nothing but annoy me.

March 10

Obviously as I am writing an article about LOST now you can see that I am a latecomer to the show. But thanks to Kate and Juliet I wish I’d been so late I’d never arrived.

I avoided LOST until now because I remember hearing a lot of bad things about it. People were complaining that things weren’t getting explained in the show and that there were a number of plot holes. Because of this I didn’t want to start watching the show as I’m the sort of person that once started, I have to finish and I didn’t want to start watching something that would only serve to piss me off. But, as I’m sure you know, when you’re in a long term relationship you do things for your other half that you wouldn’t normally do. We like to think it’s out of love but really it’s just so that we can inflict something equally irritating on them at a later date.

Anyway, a month or so ago he mentioned watching it and I reluctantly agreed after avoiding the show for all these years. I need to say now that I haven’t finished the show yet (am watching season 5 at the moment) so I’m asking you all not to spoil the end for me. However, as a ‘just in case’, my boyfriend will be checking the comments as he wouldn’t want anyone to spoil it for me. Bless him! If anyone hasn’t watched LOST but wants to, don’t read this as it’s full of SPOILERS!

Psychoville…. “I WANT IT!”

May 25

MASSIVE SPOLIERS!!!!

When it comes to TV shows from the UK I couldn’t be more enthusiastic, excited and interested. I will tell anyone that comes within hearing distance how great so and so is and why they should watch it. I am a fan of The Office (UK), Some Mother’s do ‘ave em, Benidorm, Dad’s Army, The Inbetweeners, Allo Allo, Shameless, The League of Gentlemen and more. I love shows from the UK as often they blend genres and can be difficult to label which is probably one of the best things about them. Comedy is paired up with mystery, drama with horror and no matter how ridiculous things might seem to get reality never loses its presence, appearing in the form of a character, a situation, a line of dialogue or a shitty ending. And the “shitty ending” is something we have perfected. It’s all very well that they get married, have babies and live happily ever after but what happens after that? You get stretch marks, old, possibly in debt and then your partner of 40 years (if you haven’t got divorced) who used to pick his nose and scratch his arse dies. That doesn’t mean that you didn’t love your husband or have many great memories. It’s just that life happens and it isn’t exactly a Hollywood “rom-com”.

Now, as I mentioned before, I am fan of “The League of Gentlemen”. I love the weirdness of it. Apart from Benjamin was there actually a normal person in Royston Vasey? As sure as I am that there is some truth in the show as I can very believe there is a “Pauline” out there somewhere, characters like “Edward and Tubbs” or “Papa Lazarou”, however repulsive or frightening, are extreme and impossible to relate to and despite being funny it creates a distance between you and the characters. Royston Vasey is this bubble of bizarre-ness that can never hurt us as it is contained in one location. I think “The League” lived up to it’s label of being “dark” which is what appealed to me and maybe put other people off.

I am a girl who likes to write. Not particularly about anything informative, just about my life. I write about what I like, what I hate, and anything else I think of that I want to say. I like poetry and renaissance plays, but that is not just who I am. I would like to be a poet, but that does not mean that everything I write will be a poem. It is just a blog for me to take the habit to write, whether it’s poetry, fiction or just  plain bullshit. C’est moi, et c’est tout!
