Late to the party

We don’t watch a lot of tv as we’re usually quite busy with virtual #bellringing, meetings or other stuff. We also only have terrestrial tv channels and Netflix. Our knowledge of what’s worth watching is therefore limited and we end up watching repeats of repeats of NCIS or Law and Order.

Despite the fact that we’ve watched most episodes multiple times and its our “go to” viewing, I am now starting to get a bit bored with the same old, same old. I was flicking through channels the other day and came across Travel Man presented by Richard Ayoade. He takes a celebrity on a mini break somewhere and crams in as many touristy things as they can in 48 hours. Richard’s style is quite sardonic but its that that makes the show more entertaining. I think the series was originally aired in 2016.

Our daughter is usually good for a recommendation on Netflix but she has Amazon Prime as well and sometimes forgets that we don’t. She recommended something the other day saying that I would enjoy it because it was based in Henry VIII time. She screenshot a photo and sent it to me. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that actually that style of wig was from 1700s not 1500s. At least she recognised it was historic!

I’d like to watch something different, but just don’t know what’s worth my while on terrestrial TV or Netflix.

Happy to receive recommendations.

  1. I’ve binge watched Miranda. Am now watching Black Books although that’s slightly dated but still funny. Have you watched His Dark Materials?
