5 Things To Watch Right Now



Anyone who knows me knows I love TV and Film and recently I've bought an Amazon Fire Stick and its been a game changer in my life. Plus its cold at the moment so I feel like its ok to stay in all day and binge watch shows when you're not working. So here are 5 that I've been loving lately:


1. The OA

There are no words to describe how beautiful this series is and its hard to without spoiling it. Basically a woman shows up and she's been missing for the last 7 years. When she went missing she was blind but she has come back with her sight. 
You will like this if you liked Stranger Things or anything a bit sci-fi and strange. Honestly I don't cry properly at shows, in fact my parents used to joke I was dead inside and I am probably the only girl ever who didn't cry at Titanic but fucking hell I sobbed my eyes out for the last ten minutes of the last episode. It was beautiful. I need to stop talking about it or I'm gonna cry again

Available on Netflix

2. Rogue One: A Star Wars story

I dont know what it is about seeing films in the cinema whether its the total isolation from phones or lack of people talking and asking whats going on, when you're like 'I dont fucking know, I'm watching the same thing as you'. Anyway. Films I've watched in the cinema make a bigger impact on me. This one is going to stick with me for a while. Again it was just beautiful. Well written explains a fair amount between Star Wars films and Diego Luna is beautiful. You don't even really need to like Star Wars, my Dad came with me and he's not the biggest fan... even though he forced me to go watch the Phantom Menace when I was 9 and thats 2 hours of my life I'll never get back. 

Available in the cinema only

3. The Man In The High Castle- Season 2

You're definitely going to want to watch the first season to understand what the hell is going on. I think even I'm not sure whats going on and I've watched it all. But the season series has been just as eventful than the first. 
The series takes place in an alternate history in which Japan and Germany won the war and have now split the country into two powers. Then it is uncovered that there a series of film reels showing that America won the war. I really wouldn't say I'm a massive history buff, it fascinates me but I really could only name you all of Henry VIII's wives and thats only because of that rhyme. But I really enjoy this series and think its so well written. And again I'm in love with Luke Klientank.

Available on Amazon Prime only

4. Jonathan Creek - Daemon's Roost

I grew up watching Jonathan Creek, Friends and The Simpsons. I was and still am obsessed with murder detective series. I didn't actually realise there was a Christmas special until it appeared on my Facebook newsfeed, which is probably the only time I've ever been grateful people on Facebook update me with everything that occurs in their life. 
I would say it has lost a little of its original magic and I'm not feeling his new wife. I've preferred his other leading ladies but none of the less it brought back such a nostalgia and I would love if they brought it back for a proper series and if you're a fan you should give it a watch.

Available on BBC iPlayer

5. Lemony Snicker' A Series Of Unfortunate Events

The original film was released 13 years ago which makes me feel so so old. Afterwards it prompted me to read all the books and I fell in love with the dark tone of the series and from what I remember the film wasn't particularly true to the books, it kind of merged the first three books into one. From what I've read and what I can remember the Netflix series sticks to it a little more.
Neil Patrick Harris plays a great Count Olaf and the children in the series play their roles very well. I binge watched the entire series in a day and can whole heartedly recommend. And I can't wait for the next series!
