Dear ladies and gents,
autumn has arrived. Do you know how I can tell? Because it’s been pissing rain for a good week solid.
Don’t mind me, I might gripe but in all honesty I love it (unless it’s 6:30am, it’s pouring down and the dog is taking for-bleeding-ever to do her business. Which coincidentally happened this morning).
Be as it may – it’s the perfect weather to curl up with a book or do a series marathon. Am I watching something super cool? Like Friday Night Lights, which have been on my watch-it-already list forever? Of course not.
I fancied some comfort TV and it turned into a Doc Martin marathon.
I’m behind on The Bridge, Dexter, Ray Donovan, Whitechapel… you get the gist.
But it has wonderful scenery, quirky and odd characters, it has just the right amount of drama and nothing too violent and stressy… given the old doc is a grumpy bollocks. And it just makes me miss Kingdom. Because it had all that plus a much nicer titular character. Not to mention, it was filmed in Norfolk, which is totes my happy place. Also there is a smaller matter how I’d really like to know how it ended.
So what is your comfort TV?
Or maybe I shouldn’t ask for suggestions because it will turn into another bleeding marathon and I would like to check out a few pilots because I might be missing something interesting. Ugh.
No, really, I’m all for suggestions, so fire away.
