I barely have time to watch TV in the evenings anymore, I’m lucky if I have the energy to watch Hollyoaks or I’m A Celebrity with how tired I’ve been recently.
But with a few dull weekends stuck indoors, I’ve made to watch a few more TV shows – new ones and a firm favourite returning for another series, so naturally, I wanted to share some more with you all.
Synopsis: When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. But in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years — and after mourning their loss, their friends, families and colleagues had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds, and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible.
Verdict: I am beyond obsessed with this show. My parents and I watch it together once there are a handle of episodes to binge watch and we literally are glued to the TV. It is so much more than what people expect – once you follow the passengers from the flight, everything unravels and oh my word, t is just incredible.
I believe there are 18 episodes of the show and I plan on watching as many as I can over the Christmas period.
The Big Bang Theory
Synopsis: Science orientated Sheldon, Leonard, Howard and Rai spend their days in the lab and at night, they’re eating takeaway whilst playing video games. When Penny moves across the hall, everything changes for the better.
Verdict: I’m not loving the fact that we’re in the final season of the show, but it is just such easy comedy to watch and despite each episode bringing something different to the table, there are some great storylines in there – Sheldon and Amy settle into married life, Raj tries to find a wife, Penny and Sheldon discuss children whereas Bernadette and Howard juggle two children. There isn’t anything that I don’t love about this show and it’ll be very strange to watch the final episode.
Synopsis: When eleven-year-old Max makes the huge decision to live life as a girl on starting high school, parents Steven and Vicky find their relationship tested. Max has always dressed as a girl at home, but she no longer wants to hide who she is in public.
Verdict: Can I admit that I watched this show purely because of the absolute babe that is Emmett J. Scanlan? Butterfly is such a beautiful, four part episode which covers a very important topic of transgender within a young person. The show wasn’t filled with crime, murder but it was spectacular in such a lovely, well written tone.
