WHY NOT GIVE THESE A WATCH?

14 Apr 2017

If you want to procrastinate anymore than you usually do, here are some of my recommendations of series you should watch. 

BROADCHURCH
After finally finding the first two seasons on NowTV and managing to binge-watch those before catching up to season 3 which airs now on ITV, I was hooked with the storylines. At points, it screams middle-aged serial drama but I still loved series to series and showing how nothing is always perfect even in a small coastal town. I'm really enjoying the current season which is focussed on a lot of issues relevant today such as rape, victim blaming as well as issues that have been affecting young girls. 

RIVERDALE

This has pretty little liar vibes written all over it. With a great cast and great storylines, it makes for a great teen drama which I can't wait for a new episode every week to appear on Netflix. There's not much to really say on this one other than give it a go if you're a PLL fan and need something to fill that void while PLL isn't on. 

13 REASONS WHY

This one I feel I need to give no introduction to as everyone seems to be watching this. For me, a friend told me to watch it a week after release date and, by that time, I had already watched it. Having read the book years ago, of course, I was going to give this a watch and I think it really did the book justice as well as adding more drama to the storyline.
In the book, I sadly found myself unable to sympathise and empathise with Hannah Baker which is rare for me. However, the show gave me a whole different feeling. As with the book, I wasn't keen on the overall ending and, yes there were parts I disagreed with happening, but I completely understood the reasons behind the choices in order to let this be a completely real depiction of high school suicide. 
*Warning* The Show contains extremely triggering scenes as well as plot points. This, I feel, is a really important series that if you can, I would watch. If you are wary about what parts you feel may affect you, this link here is a tweet that you should definitely check out. 

DESIGNATED SURVIVOR 

This is the type of show I live for; crime-fighting, government-centred drama. When, in a terror attack, most of the congress is killed, the role of President is passed to an unlikely man. He has to juggle bringing America together as well as uncovering what caused and who was behind the terror attack. This is another Netflix watch that I can't wait to watch every week. 

11.22.63

This has to be one of my favourite series I've watched in a long time. Based on the Stephen King book, a modern English teacher is set the task of travelling back in time and stopping the assassination of JFK from happening. He was to work through it to solve who was really behind the assassination as well as dealing with threats to stop the plan from working. It has such a talented cast I couldn't not watch it and I was so happy I did. While, like any show, there were plot points I thought were weak or weren't carried out in such a great way, I really loved this series. Some people have asked for a second series to be made but I don't think it needs it. With such a bittersweet ending, I think it rounded off the series perfectly.

So there are some of my picks for you to give a go and give a watch, what have you been loving to watch recently? 
Hope you're doing great,
