Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish (click the link to visit them) who pick a different topic each week.
This week the topic is… ‘In honor of Fall TV, do a TV-themed topic!
I’ve not been watching much TV at all lately and I can’t say I’ve missed it. But there is something comforting about knowing that the good season of TV is around the corner – everyone knows all the good shows start in the Autumn, and I for one am excited about the long dark evenings drawing in. Summer, is so passé, you guys.
Here are some of the shows I’ll be watching this Autumn, plus a few that I already am…(air dates = UK TV)
1. The Great British Bake Off (BBC)
I’m so happy this is back. It’s so addictive, but it also makes me need to eat cake. A lot. Bye diet!
2. The X Factor (ITV)
Pure trash but I just can’t help it! Every year I say I’m not going to watch it but oh look, it just happened to be on and I couldn’t find the remote. Or something.
3. The Fall (BBC)
Omg I love this ‘why dunnit’ show so much. Series 3 doesn’t have an air date beyond ‘Autumn’ yet, but mannnnnnn I can’t wait. Is it really wrong to fancy a serial killer. I work in a prison – don’t answer that!
4. Crazyhead (E4)
I can’t find a trailer for this yet but it’s being hailed as Misfits meets Buffy. Er yes please!
“From ‘Misfits’ creator Howard Overman and full of dark humour and unexpected twists, this new comedy drama series follows the angst and exorcisms of an unlikely duo of demon hunters, played by Cara Theobold (‘Downton Abbey’) and Susan Wokoma (‘Chewing Gum’). When people die most go quietly into the night, but some have unfinished business: scores to settle, blood to spill, axes to plant in people’s heads… Most of the time these tormented souls walk freely amongst us, unseen by all but a special few – Amy (Theobold) is one of those few…” Unknown air date.
5. Lethal Weapon (ITV)
Another film franchise turned into a TV show. It definitely has the potential to be good though, right? Unknown air date.
6. Aquarius, Season 2 (Sky Atlantic)
I don’t have Sky anymore so I’ll have to download this. I got a bit bored towards the end of season 1, but I’m hoping this Charles Manson- based thriller will turn it around! Airs in the UK 16th September.
7. The Last Kingdom, Series 2 (BBC)
I’ve never felt the need to pick up a Bernard Cornwall book before, so this adaptation really surprised me. The first series was a definite TV highlight for me last year. Can’t wait for more Uhtred. Swoooooooon!
8. Black Mirror 3 (Netflix)
Charlie Brooker’s dark & twisted drama has moved to Netflix with an air date of Oct 21st. Just in time for Halloween. Should be good!
I can’t think of any others.. What will drag you away from your books this Autumn?
