We all know it’s getting to the time of year where you don’t feel guilty for staying inside, escaping the wind, rain and cold and snuggling up with a hot drink watching some of your fave shows and films.
Ok, so maybe not everyday, but it definitely becomes more favoured. Let’s face it there’s only so many times you can go shopping, spend money on going out for lunch/dinner or a day trip. And with parks now soggy and not really the place to be in winter (unless you’re in Hyde Park for Winter Wonderland!), there’s the free exhibitions to attend, obviously the gym to fit in and some fab days and evenings inside.
So on that note, I thought I would share with you my recommended tv shows which I am either currently engrossed in or have unfortunately finished (Yes, those sad times when you don’t know what you’re going to do with your time….until you find another show to fully consume your attention!), so you can get excited about getting snuggled up too. Don’t worry, no spoilers here!
What’s it about? : Raymond Reddington an ex-government agent who’s been on the FBI’s most wanted fugitives list for decades surrenders to the FBI with a deal – He will help them catch a number of criminals off a list but he will only speak with Elizabeth Keen.
Every episode had me hooked from the start. There’s a few background story lines as you go through which keep you gripped as from episode to episode you hope to decipher another part of why, when, who, what?
It’s got it’s fair share of action as well as being a detective type show so you won’t feel let down. I watch this with my boyfriend and he thinks this is great too!
Click here for a trailer… Fab trailer, although if you don’t want spoilers just watch the show!
What’s it about?: Oliver Queen was deserted on an island for 5 years and finally finds his way home. It’s based on the DC comics character, he’s not a superhero (as in no special powers), but he sure knows how to hunt the criminals in Starling City!
The story lines running through the seasons are amazing. There’s twists and things you might not even see coming! You start to see flashbacks of events from the island, and things start piecing together but there’s always something more you want to know.
Action is obviously a key part, after all it is a DC comic character. But some of the story lines incorporated might appeal to people who like other genres too, so don’t dismiss until you try!
Click here for a trailer… This will get you excited!
What’s it about?: Two brothers, grown up as hunters, on a mission to get rid of all supernatural, evil beings.
Now on season 10 so there’s plenty of episodes to keep you going through the winter, and trust me you will be hooked.
It may sound like a cheesy, witch/vampire infested programme with obvious endings. A bit like twilight. – BUT IT’S NOT! NO WHERE NEAR!
There’s action and some funny parts too, numerous story lines keeping you gripped, the brother relationship being one, and so many things they find along the way. I don’t want to spoil anything so watch it!
Click here for a trailer… They now look so young watching this back!
What’s it about?: Another DC comic book adaptation. Barry Allen gets struck by lightening during the time the particle accelerator blows at Star Labs and suddenly has super speed!
This show is relatively new but I’m already loving it! The story line as he gets to know his ability, cliffhangers and the villains he comes to face all make the show a fab one to watch.
It’s not too action-y, so if you’re not a huge action-a-holic then this could be a great one for you!
The Flash trailer can be found here…It is an extended promo trailer though, so again, only watch as much as you want before indulging in the full episodes.
The Walking Dead
What’s it about?: Based in post-apocolyptic America, this “horror drama” sees a group of people fighting to survive against walkers (Zombies), adamant to find a safe haven and out-live the outbreak.
Now in its fifth season, it still doesn’t get boring or repetitive. There’s always something new going on, something new to deal with or problem solve.
This is definitely one for everyone. My family at home also watch this, all love it and if I’m not quite up to date (I sometimes get a bit behind with everything to keep up with) you can tell they struggle not to drop spoilers as they get so excitable talking about it!
What’s it about?: An american crime drama about Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer right at the beginning of the series. He forms a relationship with a former pupil, Jesse Pinkman (no, not that type of relationship), producing and selling crystal meth to make money to secure his family financially before he dies.
At first I found this a little hard to get in to, but after watching 3 episodes I couldn’t stop. I binge-watched series 2 in one weekend!
Absolutely addictive – You have to know what happens next. Incredible. So hard when this finished to think of a life without this show 😛
If you haven’t watched it, do it! This is one of the best shows I have watched.
So there you have it, my top list of tv shows to watch this winter. If you have any you recommend for me fire away 🙂
I hope you all enjoy as much as I do, and most of all…make the most of your days/evenings in!
