Winter TV Favourites*

When winter hits, we all love the cosy evenings spent snuggled up with lots of blankets, pyjamas, hot chocolates, snacks, and your favourite programmes on the TV! The TV is one of the most pivotal aspects of a family room, and if you're going to do it, then do it right! In my room I have a TV I picked up a few years ago on Black Friday, it does the job, but it's definitely nothing special, something I will be looking at getting next will be one of a better quality, the majority these days are 4K, Smart TVs, which make it so much easier and clearer, for not only your standard TV but also your netflix needs - there's no shame in that 'are you still there?' message - I get it! One that I've seen a lot about in particular is the Panasonic Viera 4K Range*  and if you're not very tech-minded their website explains it all for you!

Netflix is one of the main ways that I watch all of my shows, and I currently have a Chromecast that enables you to access it on your TV! My favourite shows have been discovered through their service!

If you haven't heard about PLL, and how frustrating it constantly is to watchers then where have you been?! It looks like your typical girly show, but it is so much more than that, with content twists and dark dark storylines that make you question everyone - this is definitely worth a watch! If you don't know who A is, avoid all forms of social media and you'll be fine!

I stumbled across Suits by complete accident, and oh my what a happy accident! This focuses on a law firm, and the life that one man manages to swindle his way into, you feel yourself slowly becoming more intelligent as they talk about the law, you grow to love the characters, everyone needs a Donna, and I even found myself crying at the end of series 5.... Seasons 1-3 are currently available on netflix, I purchased season 4 as I was too impatient, and then as I finished that, season 5 was premiering on Dave! Perfect timing, and now I'm left in a world without suits, praying it comes back!

It was late one night, and I wanted something corny to watch, and on first impressions I thought this was a film, it's not, and it's hilariously cheesy. Based on a young girl who has grown up in foster care and applies for emancipation, but instead gets placed in the care of her incapable biological parents, when season 2 launched I had a little squeal of delight! This is definitely my guilty pleasure!

I was so late to the party for this one, I began watching after season 3 dropped, then I binge watched for days on end, and am now left waiting on season 4, addictive, hilarious and a catchy theme tune? This one has it all!

You must think I spend all my time on netflix.... sometimes I manage to squeeze in a bit of normal tv too -

There is something weirdly appealing about seeing a group of adults failing at tasks and get their dreams dashed when getting delivered the dreaded 'You're fired', more recently I also love reading along on twitter, online commentaries are hilarious, especially Lord Sugar's himself!

I'll confess, I haven't religiously watched every season and episode, but this is one of those shows that you don't need to! You can just delve in to an episode when it's on and not have to worry about catching up! Again, classed as education right? Right...

What are your TV favourites?

  1. Glad to see that you like Life Unexpected too! Wish they'd continued it! And I love Pretty Little Liars, can't wait for the next season! I need to watch Orange Is The New Black!

    1. I'm so sorry for the late reply!! I know, I was so happy though when I noticed they'd done the second season! PLL is definitely one of my favourites, and yes you do! I hadn't even heard of it until social media went crazy about Season 3!! xxx
