Sorry I've been away, I've been watching TV and not in a slobbish way.
I know some people don't watch a lot of TV, maybe the odd the show or that one series that they like but no much. This post is for those people or maybe just to convince TV lovers that there are some shows you may be missing. I've only selected a few series and where you can watch them because I think these shows stand out.
Keeley Hawes as DC Denten, caught in the middle of an ambush where a protected witness and four policemen are killed. I really like Hawes, she's playing out of character in this series and it suites her so well. This series had me literally on the edge of my seat. There is only one more episode to go, all the tension and intrigue ends then.
You can catch up with the series on BBC iPlayer.
Andy Samberg and Brooklyn Nine-Nine came along. To be honest I thought it was going to be a run of the mile comedy but hell no. My friend said it was like a replacement for 30 Rock and he is right. All the characters are funny. Only one or two of them look funny but the rest of the humour lies with the delivery and personalities, just like 30 Rock. At least, this is how I've interpreted it. Set in a police precinct in Brooklyn, the show is about the detective team and all the crimes they deal with, as well as other major things in life, such as tasting all the pies in Brooklyn determining the best and trying to steal a prized medal from the Captain as part of a bet. I love this show and it is definitely one of the best comedies on TV right now. It is, and rightly so, a Golden Globe winning show. The writing is pitch perfect. Unlike the dramas I mentioned, this had me on the edge of my seat, well off my seat as it made me laugh so much.
