Obviously we’ve been stuck in quite a while now and so that obviously means your work attire is now pjs and your lunch is no longer a meal deal but instead devouring a very large chocolate bar and bag of crisps whilst staring at a wall. No judgement. But it leaves us with one thing on our minds, what can i watch? I have lost count the amount of times i’ve loaded the Netflix screen flicked through for ten minutes then given up. But there has been the odd time i have found gold and here is some of those little nuggets of joy. Or depression filled trip as i apparently like a lot of things where people die my husband pointed out to me last night.
First up i will hit you with some series:
The handmaids tale- This series follows offered who is a woman who has been stolen from her old life and basically turned into a breeding cow to make babies for her commander. This shows a world where woman have no rights and the woman are treated with no respect. It’s a eyeopener and it really gets you thinking. It’s a must watch and i’m re watching it now again with my husband.
Killing eve- Everyone has heard of it so i wont say much more then this series is basically about a assassin who gets obsessed with a agent investigating her and visa versa. It’s quite funny and suspenseful at times and a really good and easy binge watch.You don’t have to concentrate and the acting is really good on both parts you don’t get bored.
Thirteen- is a series about Ivy a girl who goes missing after being kidnapped. She shows up years later when she manages to escape. It’s a really good suspenseful series with lots of twists and turns and the star is also the star from killing eve.
Greys anatomy-I have re watched this series over and over again and i never feel any less emotion from re watching a episode then to the first time.The series follows Meredith grey and her friends as she becomes a surgeon whilst having all sorts of love affairs and mystery illnesses. I didn’t watch it for years because i thought it would be terrible but you know what i absolutely love it. The emotions you go through and the amount of times my husbands come in from work and seen me ugly crying and said your watching greys ill leave you alone is quite shocking to be honest.
New Amsterdam- similar to greys it is again a medical drama but this series more focuses on their staff then the patients and it’s quite nice getting to know the characters with a bit of medical mystery thrown in.
Working moms- OK so i thought i wont like this series but decided to give it ago and got hooked. It basically just follows a load of mums hanging around in their girl gang and its great. Even if your not a mum its a good comedy filled series to watch.It’s really good to watch as mum to see that your not alone in your feelings and also it’s a good laugh.
The Witcher- Okay i admit i only watched this because one my husband wouldn’t shut about how he plays the game of it and two have you seen henry cavill? I mean. That’s why. It follows a guy who basically has some slight mystical powers and his lover who is a witch. I really loved this series and it has a bit of a game of thronsey/ lord of the rings vibe and i was really sad when we completed it. There’s lots of action and fantasy it’s a great escape from the world at this time.
Vikings- The early seasons are a must. I wont say when to stop watching because that would give it away but the first few seasons are complete binge worthy greatness. The series follows Ragnar and his friends as he invades England. Loosely based on legends it shows how the vikings invaded and it’s a really great series with lots of gore and blood.
Tiger king – annoyingly i hate that i liked it. I spent the whole time thinking why am i watching this crap but now all i can think about is where is Carole baskins husband.
Now lets think of some movies as i’m more of a series person:
Trolls 2- obviously a family favourite had to make it into the misk. After Elijah becoming obsessed with trolls we decided to rent trolls 2 and we all absolutely loved it. It isn’t the same as the first one but still good and i won’t mind watching it again and again.
The invisible man- Again we rented this for a date night and i’m glad we did. Its a bit of a horror/suspense film about a domestic abuser making himself invisible to mess with his ex. Scary at times but the main character is a incredible actress from the handmaids tale and we loved it.
little monsters- This is a comedy about a zombie invasion that happens while a class is on a school trip to a farm. It was quite funny and different to anything we had seen before.
Last Christmas-A romance had to make it in and although it’s not christmas it is such a good film! I cried like a baby in the cinemas and i want to watch it again! A hopeless lovestory of a girl who pushes everyone away who finds the one.But are things really as they seem? A feel good love film to no doubt cause many smiles and tears in the stoniest of hearts.
Hope i’ve given you something to watch! Charlie x
