I've been thinking about how quickly this year has seemed to pass, and how close we are to the end of
After all, we don't want another debacle like last year...
Anyway, around this time last year, I was thinking along similar lines, and roped in Evil Edna to facilitate a televisual treat-filled blog post in preparation for the end-of-year review. So, as I've got nothing else planned, why not rehash the whole thing? Only this time with videos!
Here's a little taster of what's to come:
Just like last year, I've tried to categorise the shows so it's not just a big ol' list, but a few could live quite happily in several of the categories I've come up with. I've also added a few notes, such as Watched (meaning I've seen the whole season/series), In Progress (still going through it), Binge Watched (self explanatory) etc.
The Great British Bake Off - series 8: Not Watched because it's no longer on the Beeb and Mary Berry has washed her hands of it!
Strictly Come Dancing - series 15: In Progress (why can't they all win?)
Strictly - It Takes Two - series 15: In Progress (hilarious and comforting - it's like being around a good friend's house to discuss Strictly Come Dancing)
Blue Planet II - In Progress (AWESOME!)
Further Back In Time for Dinner - Watched
Poldark - series 3: Watched (more Aidan Turner in various states of scowling, sweaty undress...)
Black Mirror (Netflix) - season 3: Abandoned (too dystopian)
The Exorcist (Syfy) - season 1: Abandoned (even the sexy priest isn't a big enough draw to get me back)
Hemlock Grove (Netflix) - season 1: Abandoned (although it's still in my Watch list on Netflix, so I may revisit it...)
Fortitude (Sky Atlantic) - seasons 1 & 2: Watched (the first season of this frigid "whodunnit" set on a Norwegian island was a masterful slowburn psychological drama. The second was just full on bonkers!)
Being Human (Netflix) - series 1-5: Watched (Aidan Turner!)
The Windsors (Channel 4) - series 2: Watched (this send-up of Royal Family life is hilarious! Starring Charles & Camilla, Wills & Kate, Harry & Megan (and Pippa), and Beatrice & Eugenie. My favourite thing about it is the way they elongate the final word in a sentence - especially Beatrice & Eugenie. Plus, I have a slight crush on Wills... clip below)
The Middle (Comedy Central) - season 8: In Progress
Modern Family (Sky One) - season 8: In Progress
That Mitchell and Webb Look (Netflix) - Series 1-4: Binge Watched
Miranda (Netflix) - series 1-2: Binge Watched
W1A (BBC) - series 3: Watched - (The fact is, there's a clip below. Yes. Exactly.)
Star Trek: Discovery (Netflix) - season 1: In Progress
Dark Matter (Syfy) - season 3: Watched
The Expanse (Netflix) - season 2: In Progress
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (Netflix) - season 1: Binge Watched
Killjoys (Syfy) - season 3: Watched
Homo Superior:Legion (Channel 5) - season 1: Watched (a very stylish take on part of the X-Men universe, in particular, Professor X's son: David Haller, AKA Legion.)
The Gifted (Fox) - season 1: In Progress
Marvel's Jessica Jones (Netflix) - season 1: Binge Watched - Twice (By far the best of the Marvel shows in my opinion, and one of my favourite TV shows this year!)
Grimm (Watch) - season 6: Watched
Marvel's Agents of Shield: (Channel 4) - season 4: Watched
Marvel's Defenders (Netflix) - Watched
Marvel's DareDevil (Netflix) - seasons 1 & 2: Watched
So. That's me done (other than the occasional Octonauts and Paw Patrol thanks to The Little Witch). What have you been watching? Do you have a favourite TV show - something that you just can't miss? Tell us all about it in the comments.
