My TV watching fluctuates from month to month, and I thought it would be nice to summarise in a post what I have been watching throughout February.
I have been the most hooked on watching the Winter Olympics during February. I am quite surprised with how much I have enjoyed it, and never thought I would enjoy watching the sports as much as I love watching the summer version. From the snowboarding to the ice skating, and even curling, I have been rushing home and putting on the highlights shows on to see what has happened over in PyeongChang. I’ve also been watching it ‘live’ on a morning before heading out to work, nearly being late a few times!
After watching these games, I can 100% guarantee I am going to be hooked on the Winter Paralympic Games, which I have always found super inspiring.
I don’t think I will be taking up any of the sports though, I would surely be on the floor constantly a la Bambi style! 🤣
Another show I was completely hooked on was The Sinner. I know I am a bit late to the party, with this first airing on Netflix (UK) in November (I think) but better late than never.
I loved this show with various twists and turns through the plot, and the 8-part series was truly gripping. I think I watched half of the series (4 episodes) in one night and only reluctantly turned off because I had to get up for work early the next day. Jessica Biel plays a great lead role in this series, and you really do feel the emotion she is portraying. I also liked that the show had sub-plots that were and were not related to the main storyline.
I also want Jessica’s hair after watching this. She suits a full fringe really well!
The next show I watched in semi catch up and semi-real-time was Silent Witness. I didn’t watch the previous series, and now wished I had, so will be looking to find that on i-player.
Now, if you have seen my post What I’m Reading you will know that I love a good crime story, and Silent Witness definitely does not disappoint in this area. I really liked how the background of the characters was continuous throughout all episodes, which really helped in linking cases together. I think the episode that hit me the most was ‘Day One’ which was centred in a care home and abuse being carried out. I think the creators really encaptured the possibility of what it could be like for people living in these homes, although I would like to think (maybe naively) that this does not happen in ‘real life’.
Although I have managed to watch the above shows throughout February, my time has been occupied with watching various Disney films. I love Disney films, but most of this was not of my choosing and in fact the choice of the little delight that is my three-year-old niece who has just discovered the magic of Disney.
Now, Frozen was and is still a hit, and you can’t resist singing along to the very catchy songs, but when it is on for the third consecutive viewing, it begins to grate on you. Luckily Frozen isn’t the only Disney film she likes so we have been treated to quite a few. My favourite of these at the moment has to be Moana! I love the songs in it, and who couldn’t love a character voiced by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson??
So there you have a few of the shows that I have been watching throughout February.
Have you watched any of these?
Do you have any suggestions on what to watch next??
Thanks for reading,
