Thinking about the TV-shows I’ve reviewed recently (there haven’t been many), I always seem to talk about Netflix shows. Like generally, most of my reviews are on Netflix shows and even though I watch a lot of other shows too, they rarely end up here. So today’s post is dedicated to all the shows that are not on Netflix. Basically it’s a list of favourites by other streaming sites like Amazon Prime and Apple TV+, plus other places like HBO and a few regular broadcasting network shows too (I know, I’m surprised as well).
You know that feeling when something’s so perfect that you just hate it. Yeah, there’s a word for love and frustration all rolled in one – it’s “ugh”. And you know what usually makes me grind out that word, beards. Really good beards. Because no matter how closely I look, or how many times I inch towards that screen, that beard is not as close to me as it should. And yes, this is a lust post – enjoy!
We lack the time to watch everything we want to, we have to prioritise and that is why I skimmed down my weekly TV schedule over the years. I just wanted to replace shows with books, and with that, I stopped watching bad TV, mediocre shows and even some good ones. Also, I’m much better with binge watching so sticking to something every week feels too stressful. Yet, there have been regrets, and here is a list of five shows that I stopped watching but am thinking about catching up with.
Looking back, I’d like to think that 2016, despite its flaws, had some really great things to offer. There’s no denying that these great things were sometimes overshadowed by the turmoil of life, but at the same time, these good things made 2016 a lot more tolerable in the long run. But before I get to my favourite books and best movies of 2016, I want to look back at some of the songs and TV shows that made me happy this year.
It’s always difficult to come back after a small break. I took a two week break from blogging, because I was unable to sit down long enough to concentrate on writing. And it felt wrong, yet, I couldn’t push myself through that rut and here we are. Two weeks later, with almost no posts, no lists, no reviews and I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. Trying to catch up with everything before 2017 arrives is going to be a challenge, but I will try my best. So this Commercial Break will be quite short, since I want to get to that long list of other posts as soon as possible!
It has become a tradition of sorts to assemble these types of lists every now and then, to have some clarity for the fall/winter and spring/summer TV schedule. This time, I have left things to the last minute and instead of predictions, I have already an idea what I will keep watching, what won’t make the cut, what I still might try out and what shows from the past are still relevant.
