New TV

8 08 2011

Those of you who know me will know I watch a fair amount of tv, but it’s a long time since I’ve watched anything new. This last week and a bit I’ve been on leave with very little to do since my holiday was cancelled and over the week I’ve caught a few new tv shows.

The IT Crowd

My brother told me a long time ago I should watch this. I caught episode 1 this afternoon and it’s looking like a good laugh! It’s almost a novelty these days to find a show that’s only 30min not an hour, and with the series each being so short, I think I might carry on with this one! The other bonus is that every episode is on 4od, so I can work my way through at any old pace!

Franklin & Bash

So, I saw a trailer for this with Mark-Paul Gosselaar of Saved By The Bell fame, alongside the guy that played the skateboard guy in Clueless! Seemed like something to check out! Basically it’s a law programme, which don’t normally interest me, but it really was quite funny in it’s own way. These aren’t ordinary lawyers! To be honest though, I’m just excited to see some 90s stars back on the tele 🙂 I’d like to keep watching this but the episodes are an hour a piece. Again, they’re available on 4od, but expiring a month after they’re aired, so a little pressure to keep up!

This felt like I was watching something with my parents. Very cleverly written, I was definitely completely drawn in to the one episode I watched, staying to the end to find out how it was done. But at an hour a time and a little drawn out, without catching the start of an episode unintentionally, I’m not sure I’d make the time to actively sit down and watch it again – happy to watch it if nothing else is on!

I’ve also been introduced to a couple of shows like Toddlers & Tiaras, which was one of the weirdest, disturbing shows ever – toddler beauty pageants, if they must exist, should not involve that much makeup, and definitely not bikinis!

While I’ve been writing this post I’ve watched another IT Crowd episode…. definitely light viewing!
