This week has been a scary, worrying week for us all. I’m not going to say much about it because I want to keep my platform a happy, positive place. I also feel that I don’t know enough about what is going on because of how quickly everything is escalating. What I will say though is stay safe everyone, keep eating healthy and remember you are not alone.
When I planned this week’s blog I didn’t realise how fitting it would be for the current world situation. I actually got this idea from the Milk Bubble Tea blog and it’s TV show recommendations. I am going to do this slightly differently to hers and there won’t be as many but I hope this inspires you to try a new show. All the shows I mention are definitely available on Netflix UK (at time of writing), I’m not sure about other countries, sorry.
I’m starting with my favourite show. It originally aired between 2000 and 2007 but has recently had a Netflix revival,Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.The show is centred around a mother (Lorelai) and her daughter (Rory) while they live in a little town called Stars Hollow. This show is witty, light hearted with some romance and drama. The original series is 7 seasons long with the revival 4 one and a half hour long episodes. I don’t want to give too much away but I love this show and I highly recommend it, it was and still is the perfect escape for me when I need a break.
I mean, need I say more…
Jane the Virgin
I was a bit late to this party but I’m glad I joined it. This 5 season long show is centred around a Catholic Latina family living in Florida, when the daughter, Jane, gets accidently artificially inseminated and there life gets turned upside down. There’s drama, romance, telenovelas, heartbreak and joy. Plus, I can’t forget about the funny narrator. So if you haven’t already go give this show a watch!
If you love legal/law programmes this show is definitely for you! The recently ended 9 seasons long show stared Meghan Markle, as part of the amazing cast. It’s dramatic, intelligent, sassy and includes a little bit of romance too. The show begins with Mike Ross being hired by Harvey Spector to join a New York City law firm, Pearson Hardman. Throughout the series, it follows promotions, lies, law suits and being a family. It’s not a show where you can be on your phone and watch it at the same time otherwise you will miss something!
Those are just my top ones but some extras I still recommend are The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, How I Met Your Mother, Gavin and Stacey, Dynasty and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Yes I realise for a Brit I watch a lot of American TV shows but there is one British show in there! I’m currently watching Full House and loving it so far so maybe that will get added to the list too!
I hope this helps slightly if you are bored at home and looking for something to do/watch.
Sending lots of love to everyone effected by the virus and I’m hoping it gets better soon.
