5 TV Shows I've Loved and Always Recommend

Thursday, September 20

I watch a lot of TV series - I'm pretty dedicated so if I've seen the first episode you can count on me watching the rest of the series (then the 10 after that too...). It's sometimes a bit embarrassing when I start listing them all. I watch police type dramas with my boyfriend because those are his favourites but I also love superhero shows like Gotham, Arrow, Supergirl and my favourite The Flash. I think I've probably seen also every Marvel and DC show ever made which probably isn't a good thing. 

Today I thought I would talk you through some of the TV shows I've watched recently and always recommend to people looking for something to watch. 

The Night Manager

I remember a bit of chat about The Night Manager when it was on the BBC a few years ago but I never seemed to catch it. So when I noticed it on Amazon video I persuaded my boyfriend to watch it. We were hooked from the very first episode and watched one a night until we'd finished it. Now I'm recommending it to anyone who hasn't already seen it.

Sneaky Pete

Another Amazon video show I've not heard a lot of people talking about and I don't know why. Marius, a con man who tries to leave his old life behind by assuming the identity of his cell mate, Pete. It's the biggest con of his life and while you fell conflicted because it is a criminal all the characters grown on you so quickly. Plus it is very clever which I love. 

The Secret Life of the Zoo

If you've not caught this on channel four already then honestly what am I doing recommending it to you? A documentary following Chester Zoo. I've watch every episode more than once and just love the way the animals stories are told by Olivia Colman who is a great actor and in a lot of my favourite TV shows already. An honourable mention should also go to Orangutan Jungle School but I've not finished watching all of them. 


This is the Netflix remake (I've never seen the original) and my flatmate and I were hooked because of the bad ass female characters. Fallon and Cristal are fantastic and although you want to hate them for what they do it's impossible. I cannot wait for the start of the third season already. 

Chesapeake Shores

Last but not least Chesapeake Shores is definitely my happy place at the moment. Centred around the O'Brien family in their perfect little American town it filled the void Gilmore Girls left in my life. If you haven't checked out the first season on Netflix yet why not?

Do you have any other recommendations? I'm currently watching Gotham season 4 and when my boyfriend is back we are going to start the much hyped Bodyguard.
