5 TV Shows I'm Loving Right Now

1. True Blood
I am so happy they're showing series 3 on TV in the UK (a Tuesday night favourite). I was a bit of a latecomer to this show, we don't have all the Sky channels on our TV so I miss most of the shows when they air in the US. Hubby Paul actually bought me series 1 on DVD last Christmas and we watched it together, now we both really love this show. I also have a major thing for Eric Northman, played by Alexander Skarsgard, he is just so gorgeous, tall and well-built, yum!

2. The Inbetweeners
I really didn't want to like this show, I avoided it the entire time it was on TV. Then, about a month ago I was bored and just wanted to watch something on 4OD, so I saw the Inbetweeners, and I thought why not. I watched the first episode and basically laughed my head off, which is pretty unusual for me, normally I find comedy shows amusing, but full on laughter is pretty much unheard of. Where as Paul will laugh at an-y-thing, really! I think the local phrase is "he'll laugh at a cat's arse on fire," although if he saw a cat on fire he definitely would not laugh, he'd help the cat, but never mind.
When I made Paul watch the first episode he found it so funny he was in hysterics!

3. Peep Show
This is a great show, but I must admit I only find it amusing, not laugh out loud funny. Again this is one I missed on normal TV, that I have been catching up on with 4OD (just finished series 2). Paul's been trying to persuade me to watch it for a while and I finally succumbed. Now I think I'm a little bit addicted to it, good thing I've got another five series of it to watch yet.

4. Gok's Clothes Roadshow: Get The Look For Less
The second series started last night on Chanel 4 making Tuesday nights my favourite for TV. I've been a fan of Gok Wan since he first came on TV and I will watch anything he's in. I think he's a great stylist who's budget friendly and really into customising. When I've lost my weight I'd love for him to style me, although I wouldn't want to be on TV particularly.
This series is going to be even better because he's creating outfits for £50, that's definitely more my budget for clothes especially these days.

5. The Body Farm
I read a book last year called The Body Farm by Patricia Cornwell which was a really good read, I don't think there's any connection between the new TV series and the book because the book is set in the US and the TV programme is set in the UK and the characters are different but both are medical crime thrillers and both are brilliant. Another Tuesday night favourite, I just find this one fascinating.

What are your favourite shows?


  1. It's good when you find something that really makes you laugh. I don't watch much tv at all... but recently DS and DH have discovered "Big Bang Theory" and I quite like that one - we've all had some good laughs at that.
    We also watch "QI" a fair bit and I like that too.
    I am usually too busy blogging or making stuff, to watch much on tv - to the point where I actually forget to watch something that I really did want to see... duh!

  2. I'm enjoying The Body Farm too

  3. I haven't watched TV for fact the satellite box isn't working today, due to a storm we had earlier- it will probs be tomorrow before it restores itself!
