With more time being spent indoors, watching TV Shows is an easy way to kill time. I’m still working from home so I don’t have as much time during the weekdays but in the evenings and during weekends, I’ve got sucked in. I thought I’d share some of the TV shows I’ve watched recently in case you need some inspiration for what to fill your time with. Worth noting, some of these TV shows I started and finished watching before the lockdown.
First Dates on Channel 4
As I’m writing this post, I’ve got First Dates on in the background. It’s an easy watch and something fun to rest your eyes on. Honestly, it makes me so happy. So many interesting characters and fun people. All you want is for all of them to find true love. All seasons are available on Channel 4’s All 4 streaming app, including the current season (14) where a new episode is released weekly.
Endeavour on ITV
When I was growing up, Inspector Morse was a popular British detective TV show in Sweden. Morse is one of my favourite British detectives so when my friend told me that there’s another show featuring him, I was intrigued. Endeavour, the prequel to Inspector Morse, came out back in 2013 but it was only earlier this year that I started watching it when ITV Hub re-released the first season. Currently they’re airing one episode a week and I’m on season 3 now. Definitely worth a watch if you like British drama.
Killing Eve on BBC
I loooved the first season and couldn’t wait to watch the second one but somehow I forgot about it. I’ve recently just finished the second season and although not as good as the first, I still binge it over a weekend. I don’t think it needs an introduction but if you’ve not watched it yet, please do!
Giri/Haji on BBC
Another great BBC series available on BBC iPlayer and Netflix is Giri/Haji. If you like thrillers, this is fantastic. Set in Tokyo and London a murder in the latter city ties them together. A great thriller where Japanese gangsters meet British police.
The Great British Bake Off on Channel 4
I love baking and I love watching others bake too. This series isn’t as good as when it was aired on BBC (miss you Mary Berry) but I’m currently enjoying the weekly Stand Up 2 Cancer specials. They managed to get Louis Theroux to bake, how amazing is that?! Speaking of Mr Theroux, give his documentaries a watch if you haven’t already. He met the Tiger King long before the Netflix show came out.
Tiger King on Netflix
I had to watch it after everyone hyping it up and it being splattered all over my social channels. Like I mentioned, I’d already seen him in an episode of Louis Theroux’s documentaries but I had no idea of recent events. This show is so bizarre and crazy you won’t believe. I love all the twists and how the story escalates for each episode. It’s a really well filmed and told documentary.
The Witcher on Netflix
Another series I was late to the party to watch is The Witcher. I absolutely hate the opening scene, such poor quality and a bit naff but I got sucked in shortly after. If you like Game of Thrones this has a similar fantasy style, with Gerald (a mutated monster hunter) as the main character. It’s based on the book series with the same name but I have no idea how closely the TV show follows the books. The second season sadly isn’t out until next year and with the current situation perhaps not until the end of 2021.
If you need more inspiration of what to watch and you’re into Scandinavian drama, I’ve previously written a blog post listing my favourites.
