23before23 #6: Catching up

After detoxing myself from TV for a long time during deadlines, I’ve spent the past few weeks catching up big time on some TV shows that I’ve been missing out on. This might seem super lame, but TV is my down time so allowing myself a couple weeks to catch up really does feel rewarding!

My fave shows that I’ve been catching up on so far, and would totally recommend, are as follows:

  1. Hollyoaks. I’ve not missed an episode of this in the past four years! Since being at uni, I’ve saved up the daily episodes to binge watch at the weekend and I’ve been loving the story lines they’ve been showcasing this year. Of course, there’s always going to be the far fetched murder lines and cheesy school teenage romances, but they have covered in fine detail three really important, real and relevant storylines, one about youth homelessness, another about domestic abuse and another tackling mental health.
  2. Love Island 2018 has not long started and I am deep in all the goss and drama, each year I’m convinced I won’t get as hooked, yet, here I am, sat in front of the TV every night at 9pm ready and raring to find out what’s happening next!
  3. Netflix has been curbing my need for crap TV that’s super easy to binge watch! The Next Step and Lost & Found Music Studios (it’s rubbish, so judge me) are so easy to binge! I’ve recently finished Netflix original Love which I would recommend to absolutely anyone who loves a light hearted rom-com series.

There’s so much that I need to catch up on though still!

My mom has an obsession with Emmerdale and Coronation Street, so I am secretly looking forward to going home and watching some of that with her too. I’m ages behind on my original Netflix bae Orange is the New Black and at some point I am ready to jump back on that band wagon!


Do you have any TV recommendations?!
