When I hit a bit of a reading slump lately I started watching tv more. I have so many programmes that I want to watch. This would be a really long post if I talked about all the programmes I love and the ones I’m currently watching (just finished Santa Clarita Diet).
I’m taking holidays owed from work this week and I’m taking a little bit of a break from writing blog posts, I’ve had them all scheduled, so I’m going to concentrate on my writing and reading and TV. So I thought why not write a holiday post all about tv?
(oh, I’m going to a book fare this week so…. I wonder how many books I’ll come back with 🙂 Future blog post)
I’ve been rewatching Angel recently. I watched it when it was first broadcast and bought it on tape but didn’t think I’d seen them all. Turns out I have except maybe not in order. It was on C4 and in the days before Freeview my channel 4 was snowy (90s kids will remember the fuzzy channels before digital 😂) so I couldn’t watch it.
Buffy was on at 6.45 Buffy was my addiction my favourite show ever. Honestly, it was my sister who introduced me to Buffy, I can still remember the conversation.
Buffy will always be the best for me, I grew up with this show. Every Thursday night at 6.45 I was glued to the television for my fix. I shed tears over this show. Angel was the ultimate broody vampire and their relationship is something I always want to see rekindled, even years later. I often rewatch Buffy. I had them on VHS now dvd. I have the soundtracks too (anyone else listen to Once More With Feeling?) It’s great that it’s still popular and you can get new merchandise too. I’ve still got most of my old merch (minus the novels )
Roswell was on BBC at 6 and I loved it. It was on before Buffy. Max is an alien from another planet and he saves Liz when she’s shot at work. The last series the time slot changed and I missed it but family bought the dvd boxset for me. I’ve rewatched it a few times, it never gets old.
There’s not many shows I love enough to buy on dvd and rewatch over and over. I watched Farscape too
but I did miss a lot and keep meaning to watch it from the beginning.
I did watch Friends too but when I was older, I was too into Buffy and all the weird stuff to get into Friends then. But I love it now, I haven’t watched it in a while. I used to watch it over and over but it’s always on tv so it became a bit much.
This is one of my favourite scenes.
The Gilmore Girls is my feel-good tv show. I have them all on dvd and they made A Year In A Life!! I’ve watched them so many times, I’m currently watching the last few series again right now. I remember first watching it years ago on Hallmark, but I didn’t have Sky tv in my room so there was just this one episode. Then later E4 started to show it and I realised I’d seen it before on Hallmark. Loved it ever since.
I could talk about Buffy and all my favourite programmes for days. These are my more recent favourites:
- Game Of Thrones (final series soon :0 )
- Firefly (from Joss Whedon who created Buffy and Angel)
And that’s not mentioning all the other amazing programmes I’ve watched on Netflix and tv over the years. Did you ever see Ghost Whisperer? That was a great show but I didn’t like the last season. WHAT HAPPEND TO PROFESSOR PAYNE?
So many great shows that have finished:
- Bones (still haven’t watch all episodes)
- The Vampire Diaries and The Originals (last series of both ruined, can’t watch anything by those people anymore)
- Penny Deadful
- How I met your mother (so good)
- Downton Abbey
- Desperate Housewives
I can’t mention all the shows here, my dvds are still boxed up so guaranteed I’ve missed something.
Shows I’m looking forward to watching:
- Supernatural- it’s on Amazon Prime and I only ever watched a few episodes. I’m so behind.
- Outlander- I watched it on More 4 and read the first book. It’s all on Prime (sensing a pattern here)
- Good Omens: I’m reading the book, I must see the show.
